 Race Family Genealogy of Mount Washington, Mass

by Donna Race Kneip 2006

 descendent of Luther Ensign Race

 

 

 

 

The earliest known recorded ancestor to this family came to New Amsterdam in 1650. Andries Rees was a soldier with the Dutch West India Company and considered to be a Dutch Immigrant, although Andries was from Lippstadt, Germany on the River Lippe. The town of Rees was close to the border of the Netherlands. These families were referred to as “Lowland Dutch.” (Source: The Rees/Race Family in America, Descendents of Andries Rees and Celitje Jans, 1997 by John Race Powers and William Benton Race)

 

Our Rees ancestors disenfranchised with the Dutch control in New Amsterdam, traveled up the Hudson River and came to live in the Albany area of Fort Orange. Then moved easterly into the Hudson Valley along the New York border with Massachusetts.

 

In 1682, Robert Livingston located in the Hudson River Valley and established what was then referred to as Livingston Manor, the wealthy Englishman claimed the lands occupied by Dutch settlers who had purchased the land from the Indians in the 1650’s and which one family had cultivated the land since 1692. The Livingston’s tried to collect rent from these settlers and conflicts erupted into armed attacks by both sides. (Source: History of Columbia County, NY)

 

A Petition of 1751 to the Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of Massachusetts Bay asking for assistance against the actions of Robert Livingston who was claiming the lands west of Sheffield as part of his manor. The 40 signers of the petition included Andrew and John Race. The petition was followed by a committee report in 1752 by Joseph Dwight, Colonel Bradford and Capt. Livermore which lists those settled in the area. There were a total of 44 names which included the following Races.

 

Andrew Race 1 house, 70 acres fenced, 60 acres improved, 16 years in possession, 26 years cultivated.

Andrew Race 2nd 1 house, 30 acres fenced, 15 acres improved, 3 years in possession, 3 years cultivated

Corn and Eph Race (Cornelius and Ephraim) 1 house each, 60 acres fenced, 40 acres improved, 16 years in possession, 50 years cultivated, 1 orchard, 2 bbls Syder.

John Race – son to Andrew 15 years possession, 15 years cultivated

William Race 1 house, 10 years possession, 10 years cultivated

William Race Jr. 1 house, 30 acres fenced, 16 acres improved

 

On April 14, 1755 violence erupted and William Rees/Race Sr. was shot and killed by the Livingston’s militia while trying to protect  his home and family. Six of the Dutch settlers in Mount Washington were burned out of their homes, John Darby, Christopher Brasee, Henry Brasee, Simon Burton and Andrew Race. These and other settlers had to flee to the residences of their relatives who lived in nearby towns. (Source: Herbert Keith Paper copied from Massachusetts Archives). It took officials 17 years to resettle the land and pave the way for Mount Washington’s incorporation in 1779 as a township subject to the law of Massachusetts. Race Mountain in Mount Washington was named in his honor according to family history. (photo of Race Mountain, photographer unknown).

 

The brothers of William Rees/Race settled in Egremont, Great Barrington and West Stockbridge, MA. John Rees and his descendants who settled in West Stockbridge kept the original spelling of their surname Rees. Andrew and William and their descendants anglicized their name to Race which was the original pronunciation. Many of Andrew’s descending from his son Nicholas Race remained in Egremont, and some still remain in the area today. The only recorded descendants of William Race that lived in Mount Washington after 1790 were the children of his grandson Phillip Race.

 

Phillip Race was born in Hillsdale, Columbia County, NY. His father was Abraham Rees, son of William Rees and Marytje Freer. Abraham was the probable veteran of the French Indian War, listed as being from Litchfield, Ct., page 140, Connecticut Soldiers, French and Indian War, 1755-62, Third Regiment, Col. Nathan Whiting, Eighth Company, Capt. John Jeffry. Also listed on the Rolls of CT. Men in the French and Indian War, by Albert C. Bates, Hartford, Ct. 1903, 1905. (2v.) as being born 173?.

 

Notes from the “Herbert Keith Papers” state “Phillip Race lived on the south end of Race Mountain, east side of road, owned 2 houses there. William Race was a brother. Race living in south part of Mount Washington is Grandson.” The grandson Herbert Keith was referring to was Martin Race, son of Gilbert Race. Herbert Keith and Martin Race were living in Mount Washington at the same time during the late 1880’s.

 

Phillip Race and wife are shown on the 1820 Mount Washington US Fed. Census with 3 sons and 3 daughters, and the 1830 US Fed Census in Salisbury, CT with 2 sons and 3 daughters. While no vital record has been found for the marriage of Phillip Race, according to a genealogy written by Sampson Cline in 1893, an Eve Cline daughter of Jacob Cline and Rebecca Daley b. 24 Oct 1784 in W. Copake, Columbia Co., NY married a Gilbert Race. While that information is inaccurate, an Eve whose maiden name was unknown did marry a Race, and that Race was Phillip Race. Eve Race is buried by the side of her husband Phillip in South Egremont, MA. Her year of birth is some what off according to the cemetery transcriptions in S. Egremont. I believe they were either difficult to read, or were transcribed inaccurately as was Phillip’s.

 

Death Record Great Barrington, MA. 1850 Vol. 48 page 25 states the following: “Phillip Race date of death May 26th, 77 years 11 mo 7 da, Widower, born Hillsdale, NY, Parents: Abram and ______ Race. Died of Old Age.”

 

The documented children of Phillip and Eve Race were Gilbert (by Herbert Keith Papers), John b. 1815 (by Volk Genealogy), Ensign b. 1820, Andrew B. b. 1823 and Paulina b. 1818. The last three are verified by marriage and death records. The other daughters and one son of Phillip and Eve are unknown. No birth records have ever been found for any of these sons or daughters. It is possible that the Charles Brace b. 1800 and died in 1830, buried in Egremont next to Phillip and Eve is his oldest son, and that this grave really reads Charles B. Race.

Abraham Rees, son of William and Marytje Rees m. Catherine (Unknown). They took residence in Nobletown (Hillsdale) Columbia Co., NY. He is listed in the Tax Rolls of that town in 1767. Their only recorded child Phillip Race was born and baptized by the Rev. Gideon Bostwick on 10 May 1771 which matches Great Barrington Death Records. Recorded in 1850 (most deaths recorded a year later).

 

Phillip Race and his wife Eve lived in Mount Washington or Egremont as early as 1808 possibly in the home of relatives.  According to family records, Gilbert was born in Mount Washington. They had the following children.

 

Gilbert Race b. 20 March 1808 d. 20 April 1885 in Waukegan, Lake Co., IL. He married Huldah Noble Campbell, dau. of Robert Campbell and Huldah Noble in Mount Washington. Gilbert and Huldah are both buried in Mount Washington Cemetery. Documented in the Peterson Funeral Home Records in Waukegan, IL, it states that his body was shipped back to Massachusetts for burial. All the children of Gilbert and Huldah moved to Chicago, Illinois.

 

John Race bon 1815 married Catharine Volk, dau. of Garret and Elizabeth Volk. Lived in Great Barrington and had children John H., Leman L., Eugene c., Mary A., and Catharine M. Race. The sons of John and Catharine moved to Chicago, IL. There they owned together Race’s Oyster and Seafood Restaurant located on Madison Street (photo of 1879 Chicago Directory)

 

Pauline Race b. 1817 m. John H Volk, son of Garret and Elizabeth Volk. They had children John H., Thomas, Randolph, Ellen, Henrietta, Adeline and Florence. Pauline died 1857 in Charlemont MA. Her son John H Volk lived in Chicago for a short time, but relocated to Peoria, IL, where he became a successful Banker. (Volk Genealogy)

 

Ensign Race b. 08 Apr 1820 in Mount Washington, Berkshire Co., MA married 1846 in Mt Washington Louisa Moore daughter of John and Clarissa “Clara” (Sparks) Moore. She died 1898 and was buried in the Baptist Church Cemetery, Clifton Park, Saratoga Co., NY. Ensign died 26 Nov 1863 in Egremont, MA and was buried 03 Dec 1863 in Mt. Everett SE Cemetery, South Egremont, Berkshire Co., MA. He resided in Great Barrington at the time of his marriage. Ensign and Louisa were married by John Crawford, Methodist Minister, from Ashley Falls. The US Fed. Census of 1850 Mount Washington, MA lists Ensign Race as 30 years old. In the year 1850 Ensign Race was living next door to his Aunt, Lucy (Weed) Kline, The widow of Jacob Kline, who was brother of Eve Kline, wife of Philip Race. Death notice in Berkshire Courier (Keith) Papers cites death date as 03 Dec 1863 which has been assumed to be the burial date because probate records cite his death date as 26 Nov 1863.

Gilbert Race married Huldah Noble Campbell in 1827 in Mount Washington most likely at the home of her parents Robert Campbell and Huldah Noble. There is no record of their marriage as the majority of the early town vital records were burned in a fire in the Town Hall in the 1860’s. The year of their marriage is based on the birth of their first son Charles Wesley Race in 1828. They belonged to the Methodist Episcopal Church.

 

Gilbert was involved in his community where he held one of the following offices:

School committee 1843-1852

Selectman 1854, 1858, 1862

Town Constable 1847, 1849, 1852, 1853, 1869

According to the Assessment of Mount Washington May, 1861, his real estate was worth $1200 and his personal estate $260

 

His son Martin Race held one or more of these offices in the years of 1862, 1863, 1865, 1872, 1884, 1887.

 

Luther Race held offices in 1852, 1854 and 1855 and Charles Wesley was Town Constable in 1852, 1853, 1854 and 1858.

 

 Luther E. Race, son of Gilbert and Huldah was a School Teacher. He left Mount Washington in the year 1855. He met his wife Rebecca Jane Kellogg in North Fairfield, Huron Co., OH (Rebecca Jane was a lineal descendant of Stephen Hopkins and William Brewster who came on the Mayflower 1620 through her mother Polly Maria (Snow) Kellogg) while teaching school there. He was most likely staying with his cousins the Mead’s. Luther and his wife Rebecca removed to Chicago in 1858 where he lived in Cicero, Il next door to Rebecca’s brother Artemas B. Kellogg. He remained in that town for ten years and then relocated to Austin, which was annexed to the city of Chicago in 1900. He retired as a School Teacher and owned a Real Estate Office on Lake Street. He invested heavily in Real Estate and was considered to be quite wealthy according to the size of his estate in 1899. At the time of his death in 1899 he still held title to the family home and 30 acres in Mount Washington, which was part of his mother’s estate. (photo of Article written in Chicago Tribune 1897)

 

Charles Wesley, Cynthia Ann and Gilbert Jr had all moved to Chicago by 1860. Charles was married to Mary Jane Pulver of Ancram, NY.

 

Cynthia married in Chicago 1862 to Norman S. Avery, who owned a Grocery Store. Gilbert Jr. married Rhoda Kellogg, the sister of Luther’s wife in 1864 in North Fairfield, Huron Co., OH. Gilbert Jr. was a School Teacher.

 

Sidney Race married Julia E. Waugh who was born in Warren, Litchfield Co., CT. They are buried in Greenfield Cemetery in Kenosha, WI. They had twin daughters Maude and Mabel born in 1879. They died in 1944 and 1951, and neither had ever married. (copy of Sidney and Julia’s obituaries)

 

Louisa married Julia’s brother Charles C. Waugh. Charles fought in the Civil War and contracted Malaria; he spent his adulthood in very poor health according to his pension application. It is not known if they had any children.

 

Huldah Campbell Race, wife of Gilbert died in 1869. Gilbert left Mount Washington for Chicago shortly after 1870 with his son Sidney and daughter Louisa and their families.

 

The only child remaining in Mount Washington was his son Martin Race, who I suppose stayed because of his wife’s ties to her family. Lucy’s parents William and Samantha “Betsey” (Karner) Lindsey lived in Mount Washington until their deaths. Lucy died in Mount Washington in 1887, Martin and children Charles E. and Truth Ann joined the rest of the family in Chicago shortly thereafter. Martin’s daughter Ellen had married David File and moved to Albany, NY. Martin never remarried; he died in Chicago in 1909. The only grandchild that was listed in his Will was Arthur W Kline, son of his deceased daughter Alice who had married Scott W Kline in Egremont, MA. Alice died in 1882 at the age of 20 years old.
