|2|| Stanton is a Saxon name, meaning "Stonetown".|
Capt. Stanton departed London in 1635 at the age of 20, sailing in the merchant ship "Bonaventura", and settling originally in Virginia. But by 1636, his name appears as a magistrate in Boston, MA. Later that year, he was employed by Governor Winthrop as an Indian interpreter in Fort Saybrook, Connecticut. When the Pequot War broke out, he continued to serve with the militia. He was singled out for his bravery at the Battle of Fairfield Swamp. He continued, after the war, to serve as private interpreter to Governor Winthrop in his dealings with the Indians. In 1638, he was given permission to trade in beaver skins with them.
Stanton built a trading post in 1651 on the west side of the Pawcatuck River, in what is now Stonington, Connecticut. In 1657, he moved his family there to live. In 1659, Stanton purchased a tract of land from the Niantic Chief Cassawshett, one of three chiefs later charged by Capt. George Denison with the execution of the Narragansett Chief, Canonchet, during King Philip's War. Later, Capt. Stanton was sought out by the Mohegan sachem, Uncas, to write his will. Uncas brought his most important warriors to witness the document.
When Stanton died in 1677, he owned 20,000 acres.

Hon. W. R. Baker, son of Asa Baker, and in early life a resident of this village, died suddenly at his home in Houston, Texas, April 80th, of paralysis, in the 70th year of his age. Deceased was a cousin of E. M. Robinson, of this village. He was a man of unusual business capacity and had won a place in the hearts of his fellow citizens that caused universal mourning at his sudden death. Of a kindly and generous disposition, his was always a helping hand in times of need. When the committee here was seeking contributions for the erection of the soldiers' monument, Mr. Baker sent them $50 as a reminder that he still felt an interest in his boyhood's home. He is kindly remembered by many of our people, who sincerely mourn his departure. Editorially the Honston Post has these kind words for him: "Houston lost one of its best men and citizens yesterday when the generous spirit of William Robinson Baker took its flight from earth. Mr. Baker in many respects was a remarkable man. He had neared the allotted three-score-and-ten, and yet op to the very moment that be was stricken, on Tuesday night, was regarded as a perfect specimen of physical development and preservation. He was on the streets Tuesday afternoon, apparently in his usual good health, and those who saw him had no kind of intimation of the approaching, end. Mr. Baker's life has been an unusually busy one. Beginning life a poor young man, by indomitable energy, perseverance and business tact he accumulated a handsome fortune. He was among tne pioneers of Texas, and some of the grand enterprises of the State are indebted in part to his fine judgment-and business energy for their success. The growth and progress of Houston have been materially aided by his enterprise and liberality, and the Post can think of no other man to whom the city is more indebted in this respect. During several years past he lost a great deal of money in bad speculations, but, when payingdebts that he was not morally at least responsible for, never complained. In this respect he was a philosopher, and took the world about as he found it, Mr. Baker was a man of generous disposition; he rarely if ever treasured up a personal in jury. He was liberal hearted in the extreme; his gifts in charity, though done quietly and without ostentation, amounted to thousands during the course of a year and many poor people in Houston will miss and sincerely mourn him. As a friend he was true as steel, devoted, always faithful; he was not, strictly speaking, a church man - that is, he was not connected with any religious denomination - his religion appearing to be friendship and charity. As an exponent of these two noblest attributes he was a shining example. The city of Houston will sincerely mourn his sad death, while hundreds of friends throughout Texas will join the Post in tendering condolence to to the bereaved relatives."

CAPT. JOSEPH PALMER, father of Nicholas, was born at Stonington, Conn. in 1742. He was a Revolutionary War soldier, Captain 6th Co., 13th Reg't., Saratoga District. Joseph married Eunice, probably in Northumberland, Saratoga Co., N.Y. and they had six children - Jared, Anson, David, Joseph, Phoebe and NICHOLAS. He, Joseph, was a surveyor employed by the Hudson Bay Company. He received as a wedding gift from the Company any 100 acres of land he chose to survey out. Accordingly, he chose that much land and lived on it until his death in 1815. Many Indian relies have been found in these fields at different times and it is believed an Indian Village was located here. He died intestate and his wife Eunice - quote; "I, Eunice Palmer, widow of Joseph Palmer, late of Northumberland, who died intestate, renounce my right to administer on the goods etc., and pray that my sons Jared and Anson Palmer may be permitted to take letters of administration". - signed Eunice Palmer. Jared Palmer of Northumberland, duly sworn, says that his father Joseph Palmer, died intestate 1815. Jared, Anson, David and Joseph Palmer (sons) of Northumberland gave bonds of $2000.00 each for estate of Joseph Palmer. Jared and Anson took inventory July 3, 1815 in the year of our Lord and the 39th year of our independence.

Doctor Isaac Hill, 1723. " Doctor ". on gravestone in Woburn first burying-ground. Died January 9, 1723, aged twenty-nine. Supposed to have been the Isaac, son of Isaac Hill, born December 1, 1693, mentioned in Savage's Geneal. Diet. He does not appear to be long a Woburn resident. The suggestion is offered that he may have belonged to Stoneham, originally and then a part of Charlestown, and that dying before a burying-ground had been established in Stoneham, his interment, as that in another case, was effected at Woburn. This would account for the want of mention of him in Woburn records.

|45||A man of special gifts who easily impresses others with both his natural ability and his acquirements through experience is Paul J Arnerich, a native son , having been born near San Jose on September 23, 1869. His father was Mathew Arnerich, and he had married Mrs. Elizabeth (Brown) Moylan, the widow of Edward Moylan. When fourteen years of age, Mathew Arnerich shipped as a sailor, and in the historic year of '49 he voyaged from China to San Francisco. Three years later, he removed to Santa Clara Valley and here engaged in agriculture. In 1856 he married, and purchased 160 acres in the Union district. He died on May 3, 1883, from injuries received in a fall from a buggy. Mrs. Arnerich also came from an old pioneer family; she died here about 1910.|
As kind parents this worthy couple provided the best training for Paul in the public schools, and when he had finished with his studies, he worked with his father on the home farm until he was twenty-one. Then, for several years, he farmed for himself, and in 1905 he ran for the State Legislature, in which he served a term. He was then appointed to the United States Marshall's office as deputy marshal and discharged that responsibility for ten years; and having resigned, he ran for the Legislature, was elected in 1915, and in 1917 he was reelected. Next he was a deputy sheriff in Almaeda County for a couple of years, and finally was engaged in the real estate business for a number of years until he became a deputy sheriff, serving under Sheriff Lyle of Santa Clara County.
At San Jose, on February 21, 1898, Mr. Arnerich was married to Miss Eva La Montagne, a native of Santa Clara County and the representative of another pioneer family; and four childred have blessed their union. They are Bernice, Francis, Genevieve and Elizabeth. Mr. Arnerich belongs to the Republican party, and when he gets tired of politicss he turns for recreation to hunting and other oudoor sports.

He kept a mill for John Coitmore, and was the owner of five lots of land in Charlestown and the neighborhood. He was admitted to the church in 1639, and his wife, Sarah (Long) Hill, daughter of Robert Long, born in England in 1617, was admitted to the church in 1644. Abraham and Sarah Long were married in 1639, and had eight children: I. Ruth, baptized in 1640, married William Augur. 2. Isaac, 1641. 3. Abraham, 1643. 4. Zachary, about 1645. 5. Sarah, 1647. 6.

The house of Abraham Hill was on the easterly side of the Great Road, near its junction with the Medford Road, which, at first, was merely the way to the mill. The bridge by which the latter road crossed the Three Mile Brook, the Mill Bridge of 1649, was early known as Hill's Bridge and so remained until recent years. After the death of Abraham Hill, his widow Sarah - herself the daughter of an innkeeper, Robert Long of Charlestown - kept the ordinary until 1679, when she was succeeded by her son Jacob.
It has been seen that the early innkeepers were licensed to sell wine and strong drinks. The evils of license were not long in appearing. Drunkenness was of frequent occurrence and many sins which drunkenness might often incite were not unknown. As a remedy the County Court passed the following order: - [October 4, 1659.] "This court doth order yt all ye inkeepers within the limits of this Coun. shall henceforth be prhibited selling of strong water by retaile."
