249 Sullivan7 Ranney (brother to Freeman), b. Nov. 23, 1808, Westminster West, Vt.; m. (1) Sept. 7, 1834, Coventry, Vt., Phebe Higgins, b. May 30, 1811, Coventry, Vt.; d. June 11, 1852, Kirby, Vt.; m. (2) Mar. 7, 1853, Kirby, Vt., Mary Huse, b. Mar. 2, 1825, Kirby, Vt.; d. July 12, 1899, Concord, Vt.; dau. of Nathan Huse and Isabel Charlton; he d. Mar. 13, 1895, West Concord, Vt.

Sullivan Ranney was eighteen years of age when his father died, and he was obliged to leave home to provide for himself. His mother packed his belongings in a small bundle, which he carried on a stick over his shoulder. For four years he was in the employ of Mr. John Hayden of Brookline, Mass., and in after years, when he took his cattle to a Boston market, he found a welcome in this family. He then went to Coventry, Vt., to provide a home for his mother, but removed soon after marriage to Kirby, Vt., where he purchased a farm, and resided on it for thirty-five years, adding largely to his first purchase. Left a widower with four boys, he married the next year a “woman of strong, beautiful character, of good health, and great courage. Her ideals were high, and she impressed her traits on these adopted sons.” The times following the war were prosperous, and Sullivan Ranney, with his large farm and extensive pastures, shared in the prosperity, and took his fatted cattle to market. He continued to be an extensive stock raiser. In 1869 he removed to a farm in Concord, Vt., which is now owned and conducted by his daughters, Nellie and Jennie. They have 125 acres of tillage land and 400 acres of pasture. Though not prominent in public, he was active in town, affairs. He was a member of the Cong. Ch. at East St. Johnsbury, Vt., from 1852 till his death, Mar. 13, 1895. His children have placed in this church a memorial window in memory of him and Mary Huse, his wife. At eighty-six years of age he planned his work and managed his own business, and until within a few weeks of his death. “His was a grand life, the kind that makes the world better for his having lived in it. His untiring energy, sterling integrity, and genuine honesty makes his life still live on, inspiring and ennobling the lives of those he loved, and who loved, respected, and honored him so well.” The eleven children are alive.

253 Mary Ann7 Ranney (sister to Peyton), b. July 28, 1828, Westminster West, Vt.; m. Aug. 14, 1851, Westminster West, William Brackett Cutting, b. Nov. 27, 1827, Guilford, Vt.; d. Dec. 17, 1903, Dorchester, Mass., while spending the winter with his son William. The following is part of the obituary in the Brattleboro paper:

“Mr. Cutting had been for many years one of the most respected and honored citizens of the town. He was born in Green River, a village of Guilford, in 1827, was employed for a time in connection with his father’s business, but in 1853 entered the service of the Old Colony Railroad, and in 1854 went to Lawrenceville, Ind., where he was employed for several years by the Indianapolis and Cincinnati Railroad. While there his health failed seriously, and he resigned his position and removed to Kalamazoo, where he engaged in trade and other business in partnership with his brother-in-law, Hon. Peyton Ranney. After a few years, failing health obliged him to retire and return to the East, first making a short stay in Brattleboro, but soon removing to this place, in 1871, where he had since continued to live, but never with very firm health.

“He quickly became a leading citizen of the town, filling many offices of trust, and enjoying the unlimited confidence of his townsmen. He was chosen to represent the county for a term as one of its senators in the General Assembly of the State. Upon the formation of Maple Grove Grange he was a charter member and its first Master. He held some of its offices for a considerable time, and was always deeply interested in it welfare, as in the social and general well-being of the community in all its interests. Though the church was not denominationally that of his choice, he supported it constantly, being always present, when able, at its services with his entire family. He was for many years the leader of the choir, and with some of his children gave to it a high character for the choir of a country church.

“The body was brought here for burial on Monday, being met at the church by almost the entire membership of the Grange and by the citizens of the place, and followed in procession to the cemetery lot, where the burial service of the Grange was used in part, and prayer was offered by the recent pastor, Rev. Henry A. Goodhue.”

Feb. 18, 1874, North Troy, Vt. Rev. Timothy Emerson Ranney was educated at Phillips Exeter Academy, Middlebury College, and Andover Theological School. After leaving school he preached for a time at Barnett, Vt. In 1844 he went as missionary to the Pawnee Indians under the direction of the “A. C. B. F. M.” For three years he was in what is now Minnesota, but at that time was “Unexplored Territory.” On being recalled he returned to New England, bringing with him two Indian children which had been found scalped and left to die by the wayside.

Soon after his return the “A. B. C. F. M.” sent him to the Cherokee Indians where he remained for fourteen years. With others in the field he established a mission known as Lee’s Creek; which was in Indian Territory, about fourteen miles from Fort Smith, and about the same distance from Van Buren, Arkansas. While at Lee’s Creek two sons were born to him. Joseph Emerson in 1849, and Timothy Taylor in 1852.

The outbreak of the Civil War in 1861 made it necessary for him to leave the south, as he was known to be a northern sympathizer. After his return to New England he preached for a time at Oxford, Maine. In 1864 he bought a small farm at St. Johnsbury, Vt., but not desiring to give up the ministry he preached at West Charlestown, Vt., at Holland, Vt., and then at North Troy, Vt., where his wife died in 1874. Then on account of failing health retired to his St. Johnsbury farm, where he died July 30, 1884.

267 Rev. Joseph Addison7 Ranney (brother to Aretus), b. Feb. 15, 1817, Westminster West, Vt.; m. (1) Sept. 23, 1841, Adaline Hitchcock, b. 1818, Westminster West; d.

(4) Apr. 23, 1891, Mrs. Jane Blackburn Stewart. He d. Dec. 6, 1891, Kalamazoo, Mich. The following is gleaned from a pamphlet, “In Memoriam.”

Received into the church, March 6, 1831, with 30 others; entered Phillips Academy, Andover, Mass., in next month; entered Middlebury College 1835; grad. 1839. Owing to ill health taught in family of Captain Calhoun, nephew of the renowned John C. Calhoun, Preston, Miss. In May, 1841, licensed to preach; officiated at two small stations; ordained May, 1842; became pastor at Grenada, Miss.; June, 1843, took charge at Spring Grove and Carlinville, Ill, at less than $400 salary; 1846 chaplain of Monticello Female Seminary and pastor of the ch. Pastor, 1859-1872, at Three Rivers, Mich. On one day he received 68 into the church and a $30,000 church was built under his administration. Eighty members of his congregation enlisted in the army. In 1864 he and his wife served six weeks for the Christian Commission. In 1873 financial agent of the new Michigan Female Seminary, Kalamazoo, Mich., modeled after Mt. Holyoke Seminary. Trustee 1868 to his death. Pastor, 1873-78, at Delphi, Indiana. Retired 1878 from active pastorate and settled in Kalamazoo. In 36 years of pastoral labor had preached 3304 sermons in 16 States, and had received 469 persons in the church on profession and 309 by letter; had baptized 154 adults and 127 infants. After 25 years of ministerial labors he wrote: “Whatever ambition I had in early years for high position, as pastor and preacher, it is plain that I can expect now to reach no very great eminence. I hope to continue on and make progress, but I know there is nothing in me that is destined to attract the wonder and admiration of the world. From my first enlistment I cannot remember that I ever wavered in my purpose; my heart was fixed on the great calling.”

Sometimes Mr. Ranney was Commissioner of his Presbytery to the General Assembly of the Presbyterian church; permanent clerk of the Synod of Michigan, 1862-66; moderator 1863; Stated clerk of the Presbytery of Kalamazoo 13 years; Republican and lifelong enemy of slavery. He and his wife were on a train overtaken by the flood at Conemaugh, Pa., and his wife’s body was recovered after three months. He received the degree of D. D. from Middlebury College. The author of his “In Memoriam” in closing wrote: “The supreme heroic moment was when, amid the dash of floods, and crash of debris at Conemaugh, desolated of his heart’s treasure, in the imminent presence of an awful death, he stood unappalled, resigned, triumphant, comforting his affrighted companions in peril with the testimony of a sublime faith; ‘God is our Refuge and Strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will we not fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the seas; though the waters thereof roar and be troubled; though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.’”
