General William Eaton, Portrait by Rembrandt Peale

Notes for GEN. WILIAM EATON:
EATON, WILLIAM (1764—1811), American soldier, was born in Woodstock, Connecticut, on the 23rd of February 1764. As a boy he served for a short time in the Continental army. He was a school teacher for several years, graduated at Dartmouth College in 1790, was clerk of the lower house of the Vermont legislature in 1791—1792, and in 1792 re-entered the army as a captain, later serving against the Indians in Ohio and Georgia. In 1797 he was appointed consul to Tunis, where he arrived in February 1799. In March 1799, with the consuls to Tripoli and Algiers, he negotiated alterations in the treaty of 1797 with Tunis. He rendered great service to Danish merchantmen by buying on credit several Danish prizes in. Tunis and turning them over to their original owners for the redemption of his notes. In 1803 he quarrelled with the Bey, was ordered’ from the country, and returned to the United States to urge American intervention for the restoration of Ahmet Karamanli to the throne of Tripoli, arguing that this would impress the Barbary States with the power of the United States. In 1804 he returned to the Mediterranean as United States naval agent to the Barbary States with Barron’s fleet. On the 23rd of February 1805 he agreed with Ahmet that the United States should undertake to re-establish him in Tripoli, that the expenses of the expedition should be repaid to the United States by Ahmet, an.d that Eaton should be general and commander-in-chief of the land forces in Ahmet’s campaign; as the secretary of the navy had given the entire matter into the hands of Commodore Barron, and as Barron and Tobias Lear (1762—1816), the United States consulgeneral at Algiers and a diplomatic agent to conduct negotiations, had been instructed to consider the advisability of making arrangements with the existing government in Tripoli, Eaton far exceeded his authority. On the 8th of March he started for Derna across the Libyan desert from the Arab’s Tower, 40 m. W. of Alexandria, with a force of about 5oo men., including a few Americans, about 40 Greeks and some Arab cavalry. In the march of nearly fioo m. the camel-drivers and the Arab chiefs repeatedly mutinied, and Ahmet Pasha once put himself at the head of the Arabs and ordered them to attack Eaton. Ahmet more than once wished to give up the expedition. There were practically no provisions for the latter part of the march. On. the 27th of April with the assistance of three bombarding cruisers Eaton captured Derna—an exploit commemorated by Whittier’s poem Derne. On the I3th of May and on the ioth of June he successfully withstood the attacks of Tripolitan forces sent to dislodge him. On the 12th of June he abandoned the town upon orders from Commodore Rodgers, for Lear had made peace (4th June) with Yussuf, the de facto Pasha of Tripoli. Eaton returned to the United States, and received a grant of 10,000 acres in Maine from the Massachusetts legislature. According to a deposition which he made in January 1807 he was approached by Aaron Burr (q.v.), who attempted to enlist him in his “conspiracy,” and wished him to win over the marine corps and to sound Preble and Decatur. As he received from the government, soon after making this deposition, about $10,000 to liquidate claims for his expense in Tripoli, which he had long pressed in vain, his good faith has been doubted. At Burr’s trial at Richmond in 1807 Eaton was one of the witnesses, but his testimony was unimportant. In May 1807 he was elected a member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, and served for one term. He died on the 1st of June 1811 in Brimfield, Massachusetts.

WALTER MELLISH.

Mellish enlisted like other soldiers, and was made part and parcel of
Co. I, Capt. Carlton. His rank at muster-in of the company was Private.
From this grade he was promoted thus: to Corporal in July, 180;] (on Folly
Island) ; to Sergeant 20 Aug. 18(U. As a corporal he re-enlisted, and had
the regulation furlough.

When the regiment went to Fort Fisher in January 1865, Mellish was
left in Virginia. “He received 2d Lieutenant’s commission about 25 Jan.
He rejoined with the others (from Virginia) 17 Feb., near Fort Fisher, and
went with regiment through to Wilmington. He was mustered as 2d Lieu-
tenant, 25 April, as of 1 March, 1865”), cice J. Ackerman, promoted, the com-
mission being dated 25 Jan. It is quite apparent, as Ackeruian was mustered
into his new grade 24 Feb. that the interval of two months was an injustice
to Mellish; but historians have no power to right this class of wrongs. He
was assigned to Co. F, and the muster was for the unexpired term of the
regiment. Very soon again he was promoted to 1st Lieutenant, cice John S.
James, promoted, being mustered 19 May, as of 26 April, and for the unex-
pired term of the regiment. The commission bore date 6 April. He was
assigned to Co. H and so continued to the end. Mellish, on receiving his
2d Lieutenant’s commission (in Virginia), was presented by his comrades
there with a sword and straps. He was at Bluffton, Daufuskie, Pocotaligo,
Jehossee, Edisto, James Island (but not in the fight of I6 June, being sick
in camp). Went to Florida with the lumber expedition, in January. 1863.
Was never wounded. Was for some time one of the color-guard.

He was born in Boston,Mass., 16 June 1841. His address, in 1890,
was Harvard Square, Cambridge, Mass.

Notes for ELIZABETH “LIZZIE” ELLA BALL:
Mechanicsville was a village in the town of Mt. Holly, Rutland, VT in 1870.
It is now called Belmont. “. Once known as Mechanicsville for the large
number of mills and manufacturing concerns there, the most central village
is now known as Belmont. ”

Note Henry W. Ball of Mechanicsville

One of the early business industries of this place was the tannery which was
started by Deacon Dan PECK, more than sixty years ago, on the site now
occupied by Dr. T. A. COOTEY’s house. Daniel TUBBS, of Clarendon,
subsequently carried it on for some time and was succeeded by STONE & DERBY,
who ran it for a long time. Leander DERBY, in company with Alanson WHITE and
later with Henry W. BALL, operated it until it was abandoned some years
since.”

In the 1900 and 1910 Censuses, Elizabeth is clearly listed as being born in
VT, not New Hampshire. She is living with her parents in 1860 in
Londonderry, Windham, VT and the family has moved to Mechanicsville by 1870.

    Hey Dot, please spell Roxcelana this way (see gravestone spelling).
    Also use a different pic of Anne Mellish because I’m not sure this one is really her but the other is for sure of her. In all of the info and letters etc. I do not se a Mary Mellish. May never used this name but Edward called her Mary as a pet name only. There was no Mary Mellish officially.

    thank you post

    I was searching for Arthur Mellish, b. 1862 (India or England) and died 1926 possibly in California. His son: John E. Mellish. Is this person in your family tree?

    Thank you.

    • Eaton Family Tree Says:

      No, I do not believe your Arthur Mellish would be on this tree. This family is descended from settlers of Dorchester, Massachusetts. They left England in the early 1600s. Everyone on this tree was born in New England.
