     Nathaniel was killed at Pomeroy's island Ford when in pursuit of a party of Indians who had captured two boys the day before at hatfield. The pursuing party reached the location of the present town of Vernon, Vt., on horese and lay in wait upon the river bank. When the Indians appeared on the opposite side of the stream, the colonists opened fire upon them. The Indians and one of the boys jumped into the river and gained the shore. Believing that the savages were about to kill the lad, fire was again opened, the enemy seeking cover. The boy managed to join his companion in the canoe, and both succeeded in crossing the river in safety, but one of the indians who attempted to intercept them was shot. Five or six of the colonists then embarked in the canoe in order to gain possession of the other one, which had lodged on Pomeroy Island, a little distance down the stream. The Indians concealed on the opposite bank, fired upon them when they approached, killing nathaniel who was the last soldier that fell in this war. The Indians were of the tribe Pocumtucks. Nathaniel Pomeroy was born on 9 March 1680 at Deerfield, Franklin Co., MA. He was the son of Joshua Pomeroy and Abigail Cooke. Nathaniel Pomeroy died on 16 July 1698 at age 18.

Isaac was a medical doctor, a state senator and a justice of the peace. He was a state senator in Michigan for one term in 1856. He was a justice of the peace starting about 1849 for 30 years and he became a doctor in 1824 licensed through the Massachusetts medical Society. He was a "Master of Lodge" in 1826 and 1827 but when he became aware of the "Morgan Affair" where a lodge member had murdered someone and the evidence was hushed up, he left the masons and refused to have anything more to do with them. His memories have lots of other interesting things about life in the 19th century.

In addition to his own children, in 1830 he adopted mary Samantha Skiff, born in 1828.

Isaac and Ellen were enumerated in the 1860 Victor, Clinton Co., MI, federal census. He was town physician, age 58, she was 54. Children in the household were Charles E. 21, Ralph 17, Caroline E. 12.

     Caroline Hollister was born on 22 January 1848 at MI.1 She was the daughter of Isaac Treat Hollister and Ellen Chapin. Caroline Hollister married Peter Ellis. Caroline Hollister and Peter Ellis were divorced. Caroline Hollister married Jerome Millard.

Caroline was a medical doctor. She graduated from Ann Arbor University of Michigan about 1877 and practiced medicine from her home in San Francisco after her marriage.


Carrie was enumerated in the 1880 Laingsburg, Shiawassee Co., MI, federal census. She was a Physician, age 32. She was enumerated in the household of her father, Isaac T. Hollister. Enumerated with her was daughter Ellen M. Ellis, 2, born in MI.


Jerome crossed the plains to Reno and worked as a night watchman from 1868-75. He then returned to Michagan where he visited his old friends the Hollisters. He discovered that Caroline was divorced from Ellis and so he wooed her. They married and moved to San Francisco where he set up shop as a translator of Chinese in the courts and Caroline practiced medicine out of her home. Both Caroline and Jerome became very important "members" of the Chinese community. She delivered many Chinese babies and Jerome often translated free for the more impoverished Chinese. In thanks for their kindness the Chinese community would take up a huge collection every July 4th and buy fireworks that were then distributed to the Millard family. The last such gift reached into about 1940. I received our family's share of that gift in 1939 and 1940 when I was 6 and 7 years old. John Oliver Langenbach


Also, according to our family memories, Great Uncles Oliver and Sylvester (Mike) scaled Half Dome in Yosemite Park in the 1903. Great Uncle Oliver's record in the Dipsea race in San Francisco lasted for 23 years. In 1915 he took 2nd place in the World's Fair marathon. John Oliver Langenbach
