  3. [S326] Unknown author, History of Kent County Michigan, Url: http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec/message/an/… (n.p.: C.C. Chapman & Co., Chicago, IL, Original Date, 1881, unknown publish date), Solomon L. Withey, United States District Judge for the Western District of Michigan, resides at Grand Rapids, and holds terms of the National Courts at that place and at Marquette in the Upper Peninsula. He was appointed to the bench by President Lincoln, in the spring of 1863, upon the passage of the Act of Congress creating the Western judicial district of the State, and organized the Federal Circuit and District Courts at Grand Rapids the same year. In addition to discharging his duties as Judge of the District Court, Judge Withey, has, as one of the Judges of the Circuit, presided at the trial of nearly every cause tried in the last named tribunal. Judge Withey was born at St. Albans Point, Franklin Co., Vt., April 21, 1820. About 1828 his father moved to St. Albans Bay, and here most of the boyhood of Judge Withey was spent. Here he attended the [district] school, and then the academy at St. Albans village. In September, 1835, his father emigrated to the West, spending the fall and winter at Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, where William H., the oldest of the family, resided, and removed in May, the following spring, to Grand Rapids. At Detroit the subject of this sketch engaged to go as clerk in a general store, at a place called Auberrys, sixteen miles up the river from Chatham, then Lower Canada. He remained there until the following November, and then went to Ann Arbor, Mich., where he served as clerk in a grocery house during the winter of 1836-‘37. In March, 1837 he came to Grand Rapids for the first time. After a short visit with his father and family Judge Withey concluded to return to Cuyahoga Falls, O., and there attend school. In May he arrived at the latter place and entered what was then the Cuyahoga Falls Institute, and remained until August 1838, when his father required his services for a time, and Judge Withey in that month returned to Grand Rapids, where he has continued to reside. His school days were now over. During the winter of 1838-'39 he -taught a select school at Grand Rapids, in an unpretentious building, then on the east side of Kent street, near, the corner of Kent and Bridge streets. In the fall of 1839 Judge Withey entered the office of Rathbun & Martin, as a student of law; was admitted to the bar May 17, 1843, and entered into a partnership with Hon. John Ball in the spring of 1844, in the name of Ball & Withey. In 1846 George Martin, with whom Judge Withey pursued his studies, and who was afterward Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court, became associated with Ball & Withey, and the firm was then Ball, Martin & Withey. Judge Withey 's business connection with Mr. Ball terminated at the close of 1851; Mr. Martin had then gone upon the bench. Afterward Judge Withey was senior member of the firms of Withey & Sargeant, Withey & Eggleston and Withey & Gray. From the outset of his professional career he did not lack for business or clients, both continuing to increase while he remained in practice. From 1840 to 1844 the Grand Rapids post office was connected with the law office in which Judge Withey, was a student, and he was employed and took the principal clientage of that office, under Mr. James M. Nelson P. M., at a salary of $8.00 per month, being the only employee, and at the same time pursuing his studies. He was judge of Probate of Kent county from January, 1848, for four years, an office which, at that period, required but little of his time. He was State Senator from January, 1861, to January, 1863. In 1867 he was a member of the Constitutional Convention of his State, and Chairman of the Judiciary Committee. The proposed Constitution failed to be ratified by the people, and in 1873 Judge Withey was one of the 18 gentlemen selected by the Governor, under an Act of the Legislature, to form the Constitutional Commission for revising the State Constitution, and was, by such Commission, made Chairman of the Judiciary Committee. Judge Withey was President of the First National Bank of Grand Rapids for about 10 years from 1869, and is now one of its Board of Directors. Judge Withey has been called to Detroit, Cleveland and Memphis, Tenn., to hold the National Courts, owing mainly to the temporary, inability of the local judge, or the accumulation of the business of the courts of those places. When, in 1869, Congress created the office of United States Circuit Judge, Judge Withey, was appointed by President Grant to that office, for the Sixth Judicial Circuit, composed of Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee. An acceptance of this office would involve, not only increased labor, but absence from home most of the time, and possible sacrifice of health. Although he bad been confirmed by, the Senate and had received his commission from the President, such considerations, together with the growing importance of his own district, induced him to decline the proffered honor and large sphere of judicial labor, and remain District Judge. The family name of the subject of this sketch is McWithey, it having been changed by his grandfather, who dropped the Mc from the patronymic. His grandfather was a Scotchman, Silas Withey, who served during the Revolution as a soldier in the American army, and drew a pension until his death, which occurred at St. Albans Point, Vt., in 1836. The wife of Silas Withey was Abigail Ferry, of Dutch descent. She died about 1828. His father, Solomon Withey, was born near Sandy Hill. Washington Co., N. Y., and died Oct. 6, 1851, aged 64 fears. Judge Withey 's mother was Julia Granger, a native of Sheffield, Mass. She died at St. Albans Point, March 24, 1825, aged 34 years. Her mother was Matilda Moore, a Scotch woman. Judge Withey, requests the statement to be made that as to the places of the nativity of his father and mother, there was an error of fact in the sketch of himself, published in the late 'History of Eminent and Self-Made Men of the State of Michigan,” as he has since ascertained from authentic sources. On Dec. 24, 1846, Judge Withey married Marion L. Hinsdill, a native of Hinesburg, Vt., a daughter of Myron and Emily (Kellogg) Hinsdill. Her father was a native of Hinesburg and her mother a native of the State of New York; both died at Grand Rapids. Judge Withey has, five children living--Lewis H., Edward W., Chester H., Eleanor M. and Charles S. One daughter, Adelaide M., died when four years old. Judge Withey and his wife united with the First Congregational Church of Grand Rapids in 1846, of which they continue members. A portrait of Judge Withey appears in this volume.

  5. [S1049] Unknown article title, Grand Rapids Daily Eagle, unknown location, Judge Withey Dead Dropped Away Suddenly at San Diego, California-Biographical Sketch News comes of the sudden death, Sunday evening, April 25, at San Diego, California, of Judge Solomon L. Withey. Thus has gone another of the pioneer residents of Grand Rapids, and a prominent citizen of the city and State. To say that the event creates a profound sensation of sorrow and regret, not only in the fast diminishing circle of those who came here prior to 1840, but the entire community with which he has been so long identified, is but to state it modestly. Solomon Lewis Withey was born at St. Albans, Vt., April 21, 1820. There he received the education of the common district schools of the time, and spent a brief period at the academy at St. Albans village. In 1836 the family came to Michigan and Lewis spent about a year as clerk in the mercantile business at Chatham, Canada and Ann Arbor, Mich. In the spring of 1837 he visited his father at Grand Rapids; then went to Ohio, and pursued his school studies again at Cuyahoga Falls Institute, returning here in August 1838. During his first winter here he taught a select school on Kent street between Bronson and Bridge streets. In the fall of 1839 Mr. Withey entered the office of Rathbone & Martin as a law student. That office was in a small building on Lyon street, a little east of where the Eagle building now is, and with an addition of one story the building is still there, and of late years has been used for a paint shop. When the late James M. Nelson was appointed Postmaster, in 1841, young Withey was clerk in the post office. He was admitted to the bar in May, 1843, and the following year formed a co-partnership with John Ball, in law practice, under the firm name of Ball and Withey, which was afterward joined by George Martin, with whom he had pursued his studies and who subsequently became Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court. Afterward, Mr. Withey was associated at various times with Sargent, E.S. Eggleston, and Judge Gray, in a very successful law practice. In 1848 he was elected Probate Judge for Kent county, which position he filled for four years. In 1860 he was chosen State Senator and served one term. In 1867 he was a member of the State Constitutional Convention, and in 1873 was one of the eighteen Commissioners appointed by the Governor for revising the State Constitution. In 1863 he was appointed by President Lincoln Judge of the United States Court for the Western District of Michigan, which position he held and filled with honor and distinction to the close of his life. On that bench he made a National as well as State reputation, as an able, dignified and courteous Judge, his decisions being generally so fair as to command the approval of the higher National courts. Several times he was called to preside in other districts and States at Detroit, Cleveland and Memphis. Judge Withey's grandfather was a Scotchman by birth, and served in our Revolutionary War. His father was Gen. Solomon Withey, well remembered by early settlers of this valley, who died in 1851 at Ada, in this county. Dec. 24, 1846, S.L. Withey married Marion L., daughter of Myron and Emily (Kellogg) Hinsdill, who came hither from Hinesburgh, Vermont, who survives him. He leaves five children, Lewis, H., Edward W., Chester H., Eleanor M., and Charles S. He, with his wife, joined the First Congregational Church of Grand Rapids in 1848, of which they have continued members. Judge Withey was eminently a model man in his social relations, as a husband and father, and a highly prized citizen. Today the community mourns for him, and flags are at half mast out of respect for the departed. He went to California some four months ago, in the hope of recruiting his health, which had been precarious for some time previous. But instead comes the end provided for all. His son Chester H., at Park City, Utah, we are informed, has been telegraphed to join the family at San Diego, from whence it is the intention to bring the remains home for burial. They will probably arrive here in about ten days. GRAND RAPIDS DAILY EAGLE (Grand Rapids, Michigan), Monday, 26 April 1886, p.3.

    This family doesn't meet any expectations for being the same David Smith found in the 1800, 1810 and 1820 censuses. David should be 51 by this census. This family is probably the D. B. Smith who operated a retail store in Mentz until 1858 (D. B. and Walter H. Smith, brothers, from Orange county, opened a store in the building previously occupied by J. E. Smith, in the fall of 1824. After four or five years of successful business they separated, the former continuing the old store, and the latter removing to one across the way, both keeping the same line of goods, which was a general stock. D. B. Smith became wealthy and continued the business till about 1858, when, on account of age and infirmity, he was succeeded by his son, John T. Smith, who still carries the business. Walter sold goods for several years, without marked success, till about 1851, when to removed to Chemung county. ) Males <5 1 5-10 -3 10-15-0 16-20-1 20-30-0 30-40-1 40-50-0 50-60-0 60-70-0 70-80-0 80-90-0 90-100-0 >100-0 Females <5-0 5-10-0 10-15-1 15-20-1 20-30-1 30-40-0 40-50-0 50-60-0 60-70-0 70-80-0 80-90-0 90-100-0 >100-0.
