Her second husband is thus the first “major colonial figure” associated with Anne. The second is her grandson, Elihu Yale (1649-1721), East India Company official, the philanthropist for whom Yale College and University are named, and the son of David Yale and Ursula Knight. Anne Yale, daughter of Thomas and Anne, married Edward Hopkins (ca. 1600-1657), governor of Connecticut, but was long insane and apparently left no issue. The entire later American progeny of Anne (Lloyd) (Yale) Eaton is derived through only two of her children – the immigrant Thomas Yale of New Haven, who married Mary Turner, and Hannah Eaton, second wife of William Jones (ca. 1624-1706), deputy governor of both the New Haven Colony (1664) and Connecticut (1691-97). Thomas Yale left three sons and daughters who married into the Ives, Talmadge, Bishop and Pardee families of New Haven and left descendants. Mrs. Jones left two sons who survived and four daughters who married, including Elizabeth, wife of John Morgan of New London, brother of an ancestor of the late Diana, Princess of Wales. Of Yale or Jones descendants treated below, six have appeared in earlier columns and five in my Notable Kin, Volume Two (NK2, 1999). These six are the first Mrs. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (Mary Storer Potter, a Yale-Ives-Potter descendant); Secretary of State William Maxwell Evarts (Jones-Morrison-Todd-Evarts, the last two families of Guilford), his grandson, editor (William) Max(well Evarts) Perkins (also a Yale-Talmadge-Smith-Coggeshall-Davenport-Bruen-Perkins descendant, a line partly associated with Milford and Stamford) and the latter’s nephew, Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox, Jr.; the artist Norman (Perceval) Rockwell (Jones-Elwell-Waring-Rockwell) and French cabinet minister Michael, Prince Poniatowski (both Yale-Pardee-Sperry-Poniatowski and Jones-Morrison-Tallman-Sperry).
Outlined below are the Yale or Jones descents of 16 figures, or their spouses, whose ancestry I have partly treated elsewhere, largely in American Ancestors and Cousins of The Princess of Wales (AACPW) (1984) and its supplements in Notable Kin, Volume One (1998). Following these 16, and the above six, are two pairs of siblings not treated in any of my past works – legal codifier David Dudley Field, Jr. and Atlantic cable promoter Cyrus West Field, whose father was born in East Guilford, and two daughters of Yale Medical School dean George Blumer, wives respectively of Nobel Prize scientists Ernest Orlando Lawrence and Edwin Mattison McMillan. Further “new” figures are the wife of Chief Justice (and 1916 presidential candidate) Charles Evans Hughes, Vice President Henry Agard Wallace, and the wife of Arthur Kittredge Watson of IBM and of Senator W. Stuart Symington, Jr., of Missouri. Descendants of Mrs. Jones via Morgans of New London and Groton, and Chapmans of Preston (and Johnston, R.I.) include the wife of Republican leader and financier Nelson Wilmarth Aldrich; her daughter, philanthropist and art collector Mrs. Abby Greene Aldrich Rockefeller, wife of John D., Jr.; and their sons, the five Rockefeller brothers, including New York governor and U.S. Vice President Nelson A., and Chase Manhattan president and CEO David Rockefeller. From Elizabeth (Jones) Morgan of New London are also derived, among figures below, (1) Yale coach and football promoter Walter Chauncey Camp, via Fowlers, Bishops and Camps of Guilford; (2) Gladys Marion Watkins, wife of Yale president Charles Seymour, via Fowlers of Guilford and Atwater, Law and Watkins of northeastern Pennsylvania; and (3) Mary Josephine Lauder, wife of boxer James Joseph “Gene” Tunney, via Morgans of Groton, Rowlands of Windsor and Lauders of Greenwich. Descendants below of Isaac Jones, a brother of Mrs. Morgan, are Maude Gage, wife of “Oz” creator Lyman Frank Baum, both natives of upstate New York, Yale professor and literary critic (and New Haven native) William Lyon Phelps, and Vice President Wallace, a native of Iowa, who would have been president if FDR had died a few months earlier (in his third term). Sarah Jones, a sister of Isaac and Mrs. Morgan, married firstly Andrew Morrison; the Dudley brothers named above are her great-great-great-grandsons, via Tallman, Dudley and Field of Guilford.
Descendants below of New Haven Yales, sometimes via Ives, Talmadge, Bishop, Atwater, Andrews, Sanford, Gilbert, Bassett, Wooding, Bradley, Hemingway, or Carter, also all of New Haven, are Poughkeepsie, N.Y. native and Livingston scion Anna Livingston Reade Street, second wife of U.S. Vice President Levi Parsons Morton; Elizabeth Dwight Woolsey, niece of Yale president Timothy Dwight Woolsey and second wife of University of California and Johns Hopkins president Daniel Coit Gilman; novelist Ernest (Miller) Hemingway, a native of Oak Park, Illinois, to which his grandfather moved from Plymouth, Conn.; the two Blumer sisters noted above, whose husbands worked at the University of California at Berkeley; Ellen Antoinette Carter, wife of New York governor, presidential candidate and Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes, and Anna C. Hemingway, wife of Watson and Symington.. Outlined below, in this column’s usual format (and following a list, with NK2 or NEXUS references, of the six figures whose Yale or Eaton lines have been treated in earlier columns) are such descents, plus all those from other RD immigrants not covered in AACPW or NEA 1, for the 24 additional figures mentioned above. Following the figure’s name, birth and death years, brief career description, plus parentheses and the names of a wife if the treated ancestry is hers, are his or her parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, etc., backwards to Thomas Yale, Hannah (Eaton) Jones and other italicized immigrants of royal descent, to Mass. unless otherwise noted. As always, semi-colons separate generations and commas separate couples in the same generation. For the RDs of Mrs. Anne Lloyd Yale Eaton, her first husband and Yale children see my 1993 The Royal Descents of 500 Immigrants (RD500), pp. 311-12, 321-22 (and its forthcoming second edition), the Welsh Genealogies compendia by Peter C.
