  • Notes 
    • The obituary of Alexis Hinckly indicates that his second wife, Adelaide "Addie" Jones, is a Mayflower descendant. However, this has not yet been researched. The only Soule in her line so far identified is the son-in-law of Addie's brother. It is quite possible that whoever provided information for the obituary knew vaguely of the connection and erred when saying that Addie was a Soule descendant.

      An Associate Of John Brown Passes Away In California

      Alexis Hinckley, aged 96. intimate friend of John Brown and conferee and associate in the abolitionist conspiracy in 1859, died Monday morning in the house that had been his home for thirty-nine years. Mr. Hinckley, long honored and respected citizen of South Pasadena, served as city clerk from 1898 until 1908.

      Alexis Hinckley was born in Lewis, Essex County. New York, September 4. 1835. Always a high minded idealist as a young man he had an intense hatred for the institution of slavery, and was active in promoting the under-ground (sic) railway which enabled many slaves to be spirited away to freedom m Canada. His convictions led him into association with John Brown and he entered into the conspiracy with the famous abolitionist to free the slaves by arming and leading them into an uprising.

      That he was not with John Brown when he seized the arsenal at Harper's Ferry, was due to the critical illness of his wife which prevented him leaving her. Brown held the arsenal for eight days awaiting the uprising of the slaves, which never materialized. He was wounded and captured and later executed.

      So deeply stirred was the young man by the gallant but futile gesture of his hero to free the slaves, that when the Civil War was declared he immediately enlisted and served throughout the war with Co. K, 96th Infantry New York.

      Bought John Brown's Farm

      When he returned from the war he bought the John Brown farm near North Elba, New York, and lived there for several years. During the time that he lived there he kept a register of the visitors who came to the farm to pay tribute to the "hero and martyr." This register remained in his possession until his death.

      Another valued relic of his association was John Brown's autographed picture which the abolitionist sent to his wife from his prison in Charlestown a few days before his execution.

      The picture, a wood cut taken from a magazine, revealed the strength of character of the stern old abolitionist, who wrote across it with a firm hand, "Farewell, God Bless You, John Brown." Attached to the picture was a lock of his hair.

      Other relics of his hero friend, which the Civil War Veteran kept through the years, was a copy of John Brown's last statement written at Charlestown, West Virginia, December 2, 1859, which read: "I John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away, but with blood. I had, as I now think, vainly flattered myself that without very much bloodshed, it might be done." Mr. Hinckley also kept through the years a facsimile copy of John Brown's last letter to his sisters.

      A photograph of Mrs. Ruth Brown Thompson, daughter of the famous abolitionist, and for many years a resident of South Pasadena, was another treasured possession. The granddaughter of the anti-slavery agitator, a teacher in the Pasadena schools, was asked to be present at the funeral of the friend of her grandfather.

      Kept Post-Bellum Journal

      Mr. Hinckley's journal which he kept for several years, during the early seventies is an interesting record of the life during the troublesome post-bellum days.

      "Election day. I have worked as hard as I could for Hayes and Wheeler and the rest of the Republican ticket," one entry read. "It is not fully decided yet, who is President, but there is little doubt as to Hayes' election. There is such a feeling in the South that I think that it will culminate in another war." Then followed a line in which the Civil War Veteran indicated that should war come that he would immediately offer his services to his country again.

      An entry indicated that he had taken up hunting again and was successful in bagging two deer. He visited the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia in 1876 and according to his journal, was thrilled by the magnitude of the exhibits. Because of the crowded conditions, however, he cut his visit, originally planned to last two weeks, to a few days.

      Depression of Seventies

      The story of the depression or the panic of the early seventies was poignantly told in a long entry in which the veteran described his discouragement because of a long period of unemployment.

      In 1878, fifty-three years ago, Mr. Hinckley married Addie Jones in Clintonville, New York. They made their home in Elizabethtown, New York, where he was deputy county clerk. From a later home in Minneapolis they made a trip to California and thirty-nine years ago they came to South Pasadena and bought the little bungalow on Meridian in which he died.

      Since his retirement from public service as city clerk in 1908, Mr. Hinckley has lived a quiet life, content to perform quiet little acts of service and kindliness which made him beloved by, all who knew him. Up until the day of his death, he retained his mental vigor, and with it a determination to live until he reached the hundred mark.

      His wife, 88 years of age, is in frail health and bed-ridden and is not expected to survive him long. Mrs. Hinckley, a direct descendant of George Soule, Mayflower passenger and thirty-fifth signer of the Mayflower compact, was born in a log cabin in Chesterfield, New York, October 7, 1843. Three years ago Mr. and Mrs. Hinckley celebrated their golden wedding. Both were in good health at that time and in full posession (sic) of their faculties, so that the occasicn was a joyous one.

      Besides his wife, he is survived by one grand-daughter (sic), Mrs. Ethel M. Hodd of Washington, D. C., and one grand-son (sic), Harold A. Hinckley, of Los Angeles.

      Following the service the body was cremated and the ashes will be sent to the family burial plot in Keene, New York.

      Nelson W. Jones, and old resident of this city and for many years one of its active business men, died Friday evening at his home on Shelbourne raid, following a long period of ill health, during the last few weeks of which he was confined to his bed.

      Mr. Jones was born 67 years ago in Chesterfield, N.Y., and while living in New York he married Miss Amanda Carpenter, who survives him. Over 40 years ago he came to Burlington with his brothers, the late Byron Jones and Albert E. Jones of North avenue. he was employed for a time by Weston-Jones Brothers company, dealers in groceries, and was later made a member of the firm of Jones Brothers. For many years he conducted the store on College street, but seven years ago went into the truck farming business in which he was engaged at the time of his death.

      He leaves besides his brother and wife, three sisters and five children. His sisters are Mrs. Emiline Babbitt and Mrs. H. Hinkley of South Pasadena, Cal., and Mrs. Milford Lee of East Chatham, N.Y. The children are B. Jones of Havana, Cuba, Mrs. Vassar Soule of El Paso, Texas, and Mrs. Edna Raymond and Ralph Jones of this city.

      Mr. Jones was not a member of any societies but was a man of retired habits. He was a man of the strictest integrity, and will be missed by a large number who knew him in a business and social way.
