    The ancestry for him given in Newberry Genealogy: The Ancestors and Descendants of Thomas Newberry of Dorchester, Mass. (J. Gardner Bartlett, Boston: 1914), and reproduced in the eighth edition of Ancestral Roots (line 253), has been substantially discredited; see various posts to SGM in October and November of 2011 for a discussion of this. (Briefly, his parents are who Bartlett said they were, but Bartlett is mistaken beyond that.) Newberry Genealogy continues to be a reliable guide to Newberry's descendants.

  3. 39.  Rev. Charles Wells Clapp Descendancy chart to this point (34.Russell7, 28.Roger6, 21.Roger5, 14.Capt4, 7.Sarah3, 3.Benjamin2, 1.Thomas1) was born on 22 Jan 1817 in Southampton, Hampshire, Massachusetts; died on 12 Aug 1884; was buried in Godfrey Cemetery, Godfrey, Madison, Illinois.

    Notes:

    Graduated from Western Reserve College in 1844; at Monroeville, Ohio 1850-55; Cheshire, Connecticut 1855-57; Rockville, Connecticut 1857-64, and from October 1864 to 1871, Professor of Rhetoric and English Literature at Grinnell College, Grinnell, Iowa.

    According letter from John Dyer-Bennet to his sister Miriam, 3 Dec 1975, "Grinnell" (whether this means the college's administration or its alumni association is unclear) was able to confirm that Charles W. Clapp "was professor of rhetoric in 1870-71," and that he was "summarily fired by the president of the college on commencement day" in 1871. "It isn't known for certain why, but in a speech on the history of Grinnell given some years later the president said Prof. Clapp 'hardly agreed with the college on the joint education of men and women.'"

    The president of the college would have been George Frederic Magoun, who (according to Grinnell's web site) served in that capacity from 1865 to 1884. Also according to the site, in 1865 Joanna Harris Haines was the first woman to graduate from Grinnell, so presumably what Magoun was saying was that the Rev. Charles Wells Clapp was opposed to "the joint education of men and women."
