Laurel Summers was born in Montgomery Co., Ky., Oct. 2, 1812; was a son of Enoch and Elsie Summers, nee Hadden, natives of Kentucky, who

were married in 1811, in Montgomery County of that State. In 1823 they removed to Morgan Co., Ind., where Enoch Summers entered land and

farmed until his death, which occurred in 1845. The family then removed to Iowa, where the mother died in Jackson County, in 1867, having been

the mother of six children - Laurel, Presley, Redman, Shelton, Dolly and Caleb. Mr. and Mrs. Enoch Summers in early life were members of the

Baptist church, but upon the organization of the Christian church, joined that denomination, and affiliated with them until their death. He gave time

and money to the building up of the church, and was one of its most zealous workers. The subject of this memoir remained on the farm in

Morgan County until 1830, when he went to Indianapolis, where he learned the trade of brick mason. This he followed until 1837, when, being drawn

thither by the then prevailing current, he came West, and located in the Territory of Wisconsin, in what is now Scott Co., IA. He here made a Government

claim and embarked in farming. He also established a cattle ranch partnership with his brother, buying cattle from Indiana. The investment did not

prove a lucrative one, and it was abandoned soon after. In 1838 he was elected to the first Territorial Legislature, and was re-elected the two

succeeding years. In May, 1841, he married Miss Mary Parkhurst, who was born in Ontario Co., N. Y., Jan. 11, 1822, and was a daughter of

Sterling and Ann Parkhurst, the former a native of Massachusetts, and the latter of New Hampshire, who were married in the State of New York.

The union of Mr. and Mrs. Summers has been blessed with five children - Helen L., now Mrs. C. P. Whitford; Elsie A., widow of E. S. Curtis; Sarah, now Mrs. W. P. Headley, Lewis C., who died in infancy, and Augustus D.  Mr. Summers followed his trade until 1844, when he was elected to the Legislative Council, and served two years. In 1850 he was elected to the State Legislature, and in 1853 was appointed United States Marshal of the district of Iowaunder President Pierce; served through his administration and was reappointed under James Buchanan, and served eight years. Since 1861 he has followed contracting and various other occupations. He was elected to the mayoralty of Le Claire four terms, and served as deputy sheriff of Scott County for three years. In 1874 he was elected one of the trustees of the Iowa Agricultural College at Ames, and served in that capacity four years. Mr. Summers was educated in the Democratic school of politics, and still adheres to the principles of that party.

 

Old settlers of Scott Co letter to:

 

LeClaire, Feb. 20, 1858

 

HON. JAMES GRANT:-Dear Sir: I am fearful that I shall not be able to attend the festival of the old pioneers of Scott county on the 22d inst., in your city. I have a severe cold, and am quite unwell to-day-trust, however, I shall be better on Monday. If so, I shall certainly be down. After witnessing the struggles of the "Old Settlers" for nearly twenty-one years, I feel like rejoicing when they rejoice, feasting when they feast, and mourning when they mourn.

 

In the event that I am too indisposed to come down, and there should be no person from here to respond to the twelfth regular toast, please do so yourself. I know I am safe in saying that our people would feel safe with their interests confided to your hands.

 

I think a good many of our old citizens will be down, but very few of them are public speakers.

 

I send you a volunteer toast, to be read if I cannot come.

 

Truly yours,

 

LAUREL SUMMERS.

Rev. William Rutledge, who was pastor of the Baptist Church in Le Claire for several years, and who aided in the erection of its first house of worship, entered upon his work in that connection in the summer of 1847. He was a native of England, having been born in Braintree, County of Essex, Aug. 19, 1804. He served the long apprenticeship to a tailor in London, to his uncle, then common and required in that country, and a few years after attaining his majority succeeded to the business of his employer, in Avery Row, Bond street, and became quite prosperous. Jan. 21, 1828, he married Sarah Ann Sharp, at St. James, Westminister, a very estimable woman who still survives, making her home with her daughter, Mr. Edward Russell, Davenport. While energetic in Business, the young master tailor exercised his abilities in earnest labors in the Sunday-school and temperance causes particularly, and at length enjoyed an extended reputation as a public speaker in their behalf. The result was that about the year 1843 he surrendered his business and devoted his entire time to lecturing in aid of the "Teetotalers" societies and the Rechabite order. In that connection he labored mainly in Essex and adjacent counties, with frequent visitations in London. Meanwhile along cherished desire to acquire citizenship in the United States, because of his great admiration for American institutions, grew stronger month by month. Securing at last the agreement of his intimate and cherished personal friend, Mr. William Russell (also an earnest laborer in the temperance reform, a "radical" in politics and a life-long enologist of the American Republic), that he, too, would emigrate, Mr. Rutledge closed up his engagements in England, and, leaving with his family, arrived in New York Sept. 1, 1845. Establishing himself in Philadelphia, he soon became intimate with Rev. John Lansing Burroughs, pastor of the Broad Street Baptist Church, by whom he was invited to active participation in the Sunday-school and temperance work of that organization. As a result, he was led to examine the scriptural grounds of the Baptist faith, and to accept that faith as his own. His abilities and worth being speedily recognized, he was appointed a colporteur of the Baptist Publication Society, and accepted a commission to the West. Journeying with his family via the Pennsylvania and Ohio canal and the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, he reached Davenport on May 5, 1847, having been previously, in Philadelphia, regularly ordained as minister of the gospel in the Baptist denomination. In Davenport he was gladly welcomed by the Baptist Church, and after a short residence in the city, was invited to labor with the Baptist Church of Le Claire, Iowa, and Cordova, Ill. These organizations he faithfully served until, in 1855, he was invited to the pastorate of the First Baptist Church in Davenport, in which relation he continued rather more than a year, returning to his old home in Le Claire. Thenceforward, until his death, he continued to labor in the ministry wherever called to the duty he loved so well. Part of the time he was the regular pastor of the Le Claire Church. During other periods he preached at Cordova and Port Byron, Ill., and at Princeton, Iowa, and neighboring towns. Everywhere he was known as "The Elder," and enjoyed the highest esteem of the people. All classes knew him as a thoroughly good man, sincere of speech, warm at heart and pure in life. He died on Oct. 27, 1868, in his Le Claire home, of diabetics, at the age of 64 years, 2 months and 8 days, rejoicing in the realities of the faith and hope he had so long presented to others as the consolation of a dying hour. He was a man of simple habits, earnest purpose and marked trust in Divine Providence. Laboring at his old trade whenever work was offered to him, and accepting that as an aid to his chosen labor of preaching the gospel, his meager salary as a minister always sufficed not only to support his family, but to render his home the hospitable resort for many a friend and wayfarer. A favorite with the young, he married in his day a larger number of couples in Le LeClaire, Princeton, Cordova, Port Byron and vicinity than any other minister ever resident thereabouts, while none were more sought for to attend funerals, or administer consolation in sickness and sorrow.

 

As an illustration of the kind of duty devolving upon pioneer ministers in the county a third of a century ago, it may be stated that when the Baptist of Le LeClaire erected their first house of worship in 1847, "Elder" Rutledge carried the hod for several successive days taking to the scaffold the brick and mortar with which Mr. Laurel Summers laid up the walls. That building, since torn down, stood on the north side of Wisconsin avenue, on the corner, one square west of Main street. The basement was long occupied for public-school purposes, town meetings, elections, etc., in common with the uses of the Church; the upper part not being finished until several years after the building was erected. Indeed, the public subscription made for the church erection was conditioned on the uses of the basement herein mentioned.

 

Long will the memory of those early days be recalled even by those who then were boys and girls among the residents of Le Claire. To all of these the genial smile, the kind word, the earnest life of elder William Rutledge, will have happy recollection to the end of their days

Notes for Redmon Cornelius Summers:

 

Born in Kentucky, the family moved to Morgan Co, Indiana. In 1839 following the path of his older brother Laurel, he moved to Camanche, Iowa and for a short time, shared a cabin with his brother Sheldon. The cabin had one big room and a chalk mark dividing it.

 

Redman began a cattle business with his brother Laurel after moving to Iowa. The business was short lived and in 1844 a devastating tornado struck destroying his cabin.

 

The tornado swept over the country through Camanche crossing the Mississippi River. Vashtim, Redman's wife and daughter Amanda were saved by being under the bed. A log fell on the bed holding it down. Redman was blown into a cherry tree. His hands were badly scratched by holding onto a branch. Following the loss of his cabin, Redman moved to Waterford, Jackson County, Iowa and farmed there for many years.

 

In 1845 Redman and his brother Sheldon made a trip to Indiana by horse, one horse for both of them. They rode by the ride and walk plan. One would ride then tie the horse and walk on. When the other caught up they would change again.

 

History of Jackson County, Iowa; by Hon. J.W. Ellis; Pg 379-381

 

 THE SUMMERS FAMILY. By J.W. Ellis. In the territorial days of Iowa, and during the first decade of statehood, but few names were more familiar in Jackson, Clinton and Scott counties than that of Summers. In 1837 Laurel Summers, who, it appears, was a man of much more than average ability, came to Scott county and settled at LeClaire, where he spent all the remaining years of a long and useful life. In 1840, Redmond and Shelton, brothers of Laurel, came to Clinton county and settled in the town of Comanche, the first town founded in Clinton county, and, according to John Seeley, who wrote an interesting article on the Summers' family, was there in 1844 when the first recorded tornado passed through that village. Mr. Seeley said: "The house of Redmond Summers stood in the line of the tornado. Seeing the storm approaching and having no protection in the way of a cellar or dugout, Mr. Summers told his wife to take the baby, afterward Mrs. Amanda Littell, and get under the bed, while he would hold the door, trusting that the stout logs of which the house was composed would withstand the storm. The house was blown down and Mr. Summers found himself lodged in a tree, and not much injured. He also found his wife and baby unhurt." In 1845 Redmond and Shelton came to Jackson county. Redmond settled on section 29, South Fork township, and Shelton on section 19 of same township, where both gentlemen spent the remaining years of their lives, living to a good old age, honored and respected by all who knew them. Another brother, Caleb, who came later, has always resided in this vicinity and is still living, in 1910, in the vicinity of Maquoketa. Sheldon, or Shelton Summers, was married to Martha Johnson, of Indiana, and by her had several children, viz.: Mary Jane, John, Samantha and Nancy. Redmond was married in 1842 to Miss Vashti M. Blakey*. By this union was born Amanda, heroine of the cyclone and mother of our townsman, Harry Littell, of Maquoketa. There also came to Jackson county in 1856, the second daughter, Adaline, who married Ezra Dutton, of Iron Hills. Annie, the third and last child of Redmond, married John Littell, who for many years owned a farm near the Morehead bridge. When the Summers brothers first came to Iowa Territory, they came with ox-teams, and their first markets were Dubuque and Galena. Redmond Summers died in 1896, and his wife in 1906. Two daughters still survive them, their eldest, Mrs. Amanda Littell, having passed away June 14, 1909. Shelton Summers died many years ago, but his two daughters, Mary Jane Fortner and Samantha Smith, still reside in Maquoketa. His wife passed away in 1909. Caleb Summers also has three daughters, Helen, Eva and Mamie, and one son, James, on the old home farm in South Fork township. The following biographical sketch of Laurel Summers is copied from the Port Byron Globe, dated May 10, 1901: "Among the pioneers of Iowa the name of the late Laurel Summers, of LeClaire, well deserves conspicuous and honorable mention in the history of this great commonwealth, for he was among the first of the early settlers who began the work of transformation of a wilderness into one of the richest and most progressive states of the American Union, and through the territorial era and the period of statehood, covered by the passing of more than a third of a century, he was a zealous, active and efficient coworker with his fellow citizens in the marvelous development of Iowa, which the annals of the state so well portray in record of its progress. Laurel Summers was born in Montgomery county, Kentucky, October 2, 1812. Thence he removed with his parents in 1823 to Morgan county, Indiana, where he remained until 1830, when he located at Indianapolis, where he learned the bricklayer's trade. In 1837 he came to Iowa, and soon decided to locate in Scott county, which throughout his life remained his home. At that time, as the historian records, Iowa was a part of Wisconsin Territory, but by act of Congress, June 12, 1838, the then future Hawkeye state acquired a territorial organization of its own. At the first election thereafter, September 10, 1838, Mr. Summers was elected to the house of representatives of the first general assembly of the new territory, and he continued to represent the people of Scott county therein in 1839 and 1840. In 1845 he was chosen a member of the territorial council, corresponding to the state senate, in which body he retained membership until statehood was attained, December 28, 1846. In August, 1850, he again became a member of the legislature, having then been elected to serve in the lower house. During these years Mr. Summers lived in the part of the present town of LeClaire, then known as Parkhurst, so named in honor of an estimable family of pioneers, among the first settlers of the locality. A daughter of this family, Miss Mary Parkhurst, born in the State of New York, January 11, 1822, was united in marriage to the subject of this sketch in May, 1841, and in this first year of the twentieth century she is blessed with good health, and exhibits lightly the weight of nearly four score years. Five children were born of this union: Mrs. Helen L. Whitford, of Beloit, Wisconsin; Mrs. Elsie A. Curtis and Mrs. S.I. Headley, of LeClaire; Augustus D., of Dallas county, Alabama; and Lewis Cass-the last named died in infancy. In 1853 Mr. Summers was appointed United States marshal for Iowa by President Pierce, and in 1857 he again received the appointment, his last commission for an additional four years tenure of the office having been signed by President Buchanan. At that time Iowa comprised but one United States judicial district, and as there were no railroads in the state prior to 1855, and but little railroad trackage within its borders later during his term of service. Mr. Summers traveled mainly by stage or steamboat in attending sessions of the Federal courts. In 1860 he conducted the United States census, which exhibited the remarkable growth from 1840 of forty-three thousand population to six hundred and eighty-four thousand but a score of years later. Shortly prior to his retirement from the position of United States marshal in 1861, after eight years' service therein, he was chosen by his fellow townsmen to serve them as mayor, and in later years he was thrice more called upon to serve them in the same capacity. In 1858 he had been a member of the city council, and in these positions of municipal trust he demonstrated the qualities of efficiency and devotions to the public interests that had characterized his course as a legislator in the pioneer legislative assemblies of Iowa. In 1874 he was designated by the governor to serve as trustee of the Iowa Agriculture College at Ames, and there superintended some important building improvements, for which trust his excellent business capacity and his skill as a mechanic well qualified him. His last public service, not many years before his decease, was that of chief deputy for Sheriff Howard Leonard, and at various times he was called upon by Mr. Leonard to discharge the full functions of the office. At the dawn of a spring morning, April 15, 1890, Laurel Summers was called away from earthly scenes. From the press of the state and from beyond its borders, from citizens of his county and state, and from many in other states there came eloquent and touching tributes to his memory. They were merited. He was a man whose nature drew toward him a feeling of warm personal regard, whether inside or outside of his own political fellowship. After the close of a heated political contest, political opponents who had referred to him unkindly, became his warm, personal friends. His unselfish nature, his able, genial manner and his strong intellectual and moral worth rendered it impossible for anyone to retain a feeling of resentment toward him. He was optimistic, but never visionary. He entertained a feeling of intense pride - well justified - in the great state whose foundation he had assisted in placing. His perceptive sense enabled him, in early years, to foresee the coming greatness of this region, and he was ever earnest and outspoken in advocacy of any measure that could contribute toward its more complete development. An instance is here given on the authority of the late Hon. J.H. Murphy. Mr. Murphy many years ago informed a well known and respected citizen of LeClaire (C.P. Disney) that Laurel Summers was the first man to suggest that the island of Rock Island be reserved for the building of a government arsenal, and that he urged that the legislature memorialize congress to that end. It is not improbable that Iowa owes to Mr. Summers the historic interest to that municipality as having been the capital of the territory and state from 1841 to 1857. In 1840 the subject of removal of the capital from Burlington was agitated in the legislature, Mount Pleasant having been a contestant for its location, when, after many fruitless ballots, during which Burlington strove to retain it, Laurel Summers turned the scale in favor of Iowa City by announcement of his vote therefor. In official position Mr. Summers well exemplified the illustration, "A public office is a public trust," in his zeal, efficiency and strict integrity which characterized his fulfillment of its duties. He was not an orator, but his public addresses were clear and impressive, and no hearer could doubt the perfect sincerity of his expressed convictions. He was an able and highly entertaining conversationalist, and a most interesting correspondent. The large accumulation of letters left by him from men distinguished in public life as well as from others gifted in literary attainment fully testify to the appreciation vested in correspondence with him. In public life he was contemporaneous with such eminent men as Senators Jones, Dodge, Harlan and Grimes; Governors Briggs and Hempstead; Congressmen Leffiler, Cook and Vandever, and Judges Love, Mason, Grant and Dillon, and with many other men of distinction in the annals of Iowa. But the correspondence of Mr. Summers was not restricted to fellow citizens of his own commonwealth; it included men famous throughout the republic, in and out of the public service, at the national capitol and elsewhere. Such men as Laurel Summers are a benefaction to any community in which they cast their lot. They are as an inspiration intellectually and morally, for they afford a noble example to those who come within the radius of continued association with them, and thus it is that their influence becomes apparent as a halo to all within their vicinage. It was, therefore, but natural that the neighbors and townspeople of Mr. Summers should feel and manifest a keen sense of personal loss when they realized that he was no more on earth. No more deserving, no more appropriate inscription was ever placed upon a monument than the brief one engraved upon that erected in the LeClaire cemetery which marks the grave of Laurel Summers: "An honest man is the noblest work of God." - Excerpted from 1910 History of Jackson County Iowa, Pg 379-381 *Name should be Blakely.

JAMES MADISON CARPENTER, dry-goods merchant. Financial ability and mercantile success have seldom been shown more conspicuously than in the successful career of James M. CARPENTER. No city in the country can claim a citizen whose mind more thoroughly comprehends the business of merchandising, and whose daily life is more conscientiously devoted to his business. James M. CARPENTER was born in Evansville, Ind., Nov. 3, 1840, and came with his father, A. B. CARPENTER, to Beloit, Wis., in 1844. While a lad, he attended the public school at Beloit, and took a preparatory and scientific course of study at Beloit College. He graduated from Byrant & Stratton's Commercial College in Chicago, receiving his diploma for a thorough knowledge of commercial law and book-keeping. In 1860 he entered, when quite young, then but 20 years of age, into mercantile business with his father. They were in business some three years, when J. M. C. purchased his father's interest and conducted t!

 

he dry-goods business alone. In 1863, J. M. C. took Mr. Ira M. WHITE in as partner, under the firm name of CARPENTER & WHITE. They continued the business successfully in Beloit until 1865, when A.B. CARPENTER sold out his interest in the firm to Converse CLEMENT in 1866, and in 1869, J. M. C. sold out his interest in the firm at Evansville, and returned to Beloit, Wis., again engaging with his father, in the dry-goods business which continued for one year, when J. M. C. purchased A. B. CARPENTER's interest. On Jan. 1, 1873, Mr. CARPENTER took into partnership William H. BAUMES, under the firm name of CARPENTER & BAUMES. Two years later, Edson S. CURTIS, was admitted as a partner, and remained a partner to the time of his death, Nov. 28, 1875. For six years, Messrs. CARPENTER & BAUMES did a successful dry-goods business in Beloit, their annual sales having reached $100,000 a year. On Feb. 1, 1879, CARPENTER & BAUMES separated and divided their large stock, Mr. CARPENTER!

 

remaining in his elegant block at the east end of the bridge of which he is the owner, this being the finest block in the city, and his store one of the finest in the State, with all conveniences for doing a large business.
