In Pope's History of Taunton it is said that David Carwithy was proposed as freeman there in 1639, but "as nothing more is heard of him, he probably died soon after" (page 36).

   The passing away on March 22, 1924, of Mrs. Gertrude Irene Gear Stubbs was a sorrow to a wide circle of friends in church and patriotic work.

   She was a devoted church communicant being the daughter of Ezekiel G. Gear, known as "Father Gear", the once famous pioneer chaplain of Ft. Snelling. He was the first Episcopal minister to hold service in Minnesota, about 1830.

   Mrs. Stubbs was born at Ft. Snelling, Minnesota, where her natural love of patriotism inherited from her father, and cultivated by her environment, became the prominent characteristic of her life. She loved the work of genealogical research, helping people all over the country to make out their papers for the Colonial Dames, Daughters of Founders and Patriots of America, Daughters of the America Revolution and Daughters of 1812, in which organizations she held many national, state and local offices. She had been National Registrar of the Colonial Dames resident in Nebraska since the beginning of the organization in 1908, and was Honorary State Registrar of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

   Those closely associated with her for the thirty years which she lived in Nebraska will greatly miss her gentle, faithful, earnest work and spirit.
