Elmer C. Packard

Ancestry of Elmer C. Packard of Brockton Massachusetts

For nearly two hundred and seventy-five years the Packard family has been one prominent and influential in New England, and it has become a most numerous family, too, many of whose members both at home and abroad have given a good account of themselves. Samuel Packard, the immigrant ancestor of this family, became one of the early settlers of the ancient town of Bridgewater, and all of the name who have gone from the Bridgewaters were probably descendants of his; in fact, nearly all of the name in this country can be traced to that place.

The genealogical records following treat particularly of that branch of the family through which have descended the late Ellis Packard, who was one of Brockton’s leading and substantial business men, and his son, the late Elmer C. Parkard, who followed in his father’s footsteps as his successor in the business founded by his father.

Samuel Packard (the name has been variously spelled Pecker, Packer, Peckard and Packard) came from Windham, near Hingham, England, with his wife and child, in the ship “Diligence” of Ipswich, and settled first in Hingham, Mass., where he was a proprietor in 1638. He later removed to West Bridgewater, where he was constable in 1664 and licensed to keep an ordinary, or tavern, in 1670. His will was probated March 3, 1684-85, from which it appears that the Christian name of his wife was Elizabeth. His children were:

  1. Elizabeth Packard
  2. Samuel Packard

Micah Packard, son of Lemuel, was born Jan. 29, 1780, in North Bridgewater, where he died Jan. 8, 1854, in his seventy-fourth year. He resided in that part of the town known as Brockton Heights, where he owned considerable real estate and where he was engaged in farming, and was also a carpenter by occupation, and in that capacity helped to build the old Second meetinghouse (Congregational) in North Bridgewater. He was commissioned a justice of the peace of North Bridgewater, Aug. 20, 1823, and continued to serve in that capacity until his death.

  9. James Freeman Packard, born Nov. 5, 1823, a locomotive engineer, married Susan C. Reynolds, and died in Brockton (he was a soldier in the Civil war, a member of Company F, 12th Massachusetts Regiment).

Ellis Packard, son of Micah and Lucinda (Hartshorn) Packard, was born July 30, 1820, in North Bridgewater (now Brockton), and there, in the highlands long known as the West Shares, spent his early life. He grew up as most farmers’ sons, learning agriculture as naturally as he took to the other phases of the life around him, and as the home farm was one of the best in town he had proper training in thrift and industry. He commenced his education in the common schools, and at the age of sixteen entered Bristol Academy, in Taunton, which at that time was under the administration of Frederick Crafts. After two years of study at that institution he was under the tuition, for a short time, of Rev. John Goldsbury, a former pastor of the Unitarian Church at North Bridgewater. When about twenty years of age he began the business career which proved to be his life work. He went out to Cincinnati, Ohio, where he was engaged in a shoe store for a couple of years, but he preferred the East and returned to Massachusetts, a few months later beginning business on his own account. He bought shoes in Boston and sold them in Baltimore, and before long he realized that there was more profit in the manufacturing line, wherefore he started a shop at the West Shares. But he soon gave up the venture, particularly as his father, who was then advanced in years, wished him to devote himself to the care of the home farm, and for twelve years he devoted himself to that work, with the success which came to be characteristic of all his undertakings. But agriculture was not to his liking, and in 1862 he turned the farm over to others and returned to commercial life.

On April 1, 1862, Mr. Packard purchased the grain and coal business formerly conducted by Lewis Keith, together with the buildings, land, water power, etc., the buildings being the nucleus of the present mill property. There was no other coal yard in the town at the time, but both the coal and grain business had been allowed to run down, and Mr. Packard had a problem ahead of him to make the property pay. Snell & Atherton occupied a room in the west building, and in the lower story was a gristmill of limited capacity, the power be-ing supplied by two waterwheels and an engine and boiler which Mr. Keith had put in shortly before his death, amounting in all to about thirty horse power. For several years the accommodations were ample, but by 1868 Mr. Packard had so far improved conditions and enlarged the business that additions were necessary, and he put in two waterwheels of the best make, a new seventy-five-horse power engine and boiler, additional facilities for grinding, and, for his coal business, a new line of sheds, to which he subsequently added, to meet the demands of trade, until he had sheds 40 feet wide by 230 feet long. The coal business grew so steadily that he was warranted in putting in the most up-to-date facilities for handling it, having a side track constructed with equipment for dumping the coal directly into the bins beneath, and in connection with this track he also had a grain conveyor, opening directly into an elevator leading to the grain bins in the upper story of the mill, these bins having a capacity of 20,000 bushels.

Mr. Packard not only provided for the needs of his own business, but also furnished accommodations and power for several tenants, though his sawing and planing plant occupied considerable space. G. M. Copeland had one apartment, doing a large business in ornamental sawing, turning, etc., which he subsequently sold to A. C. Thompson, who, however, soon outgrew the limits of this place. In 1870 M. Linfield moved his last manufacturing business hither from Stoughton, Mr. Packard erecting a new building for him and furnishing the power. E. L. Thatcher commenced the manufacture of packing boxes in the east building, being succeeded later by E. E. Vittum; for several years James A. Smith manufactured leather shoestrings in a building erected especially for that business near the mill, but in 1875 that business was sold to parties in Holbrook and removed hither; about 1876 machinery for the manufacture of shoe tacks and nails was installed in the east building by F. S. Reed & Co., who did quite a large business; and Snell & Atherton meantime enlarged their business, the manufacture of shoe tools, to such an extent that they occupied half of the west mill and the third story of the east mill. Mr. Packard continued to build up the mill property and conduct it on his own account until 1882, when he retired with a competency, being succeeded in the business by his sons.

Mr. Packard was not only a progressive business man, keeping pace with every demand of his day, and himself initiating many movements which tended to advance the town or the standing of his business, but he also found time for public affairs, and the general confidence he enjoyed was shown in the trusts for which his fellow citizens chose him. He was first elected selectman at the age of thirty-five, and was repeatedly reelected to that office, in which he gave most efficient service; and from 1870 to 1875 was a member of the school committee. He was a director of the Home National Bank from the time of its organization until his death, and in 1857 was appointed a member of the public library committee. He owned considerable real estate in the town, including the old “People’s Theatre,” on East Elm street. Like his father, Mr. Packard served as a justice of the peace, having been appointed March 24, 1857, by Gov. Henry J. Gardner.

In fraternal affiliation Mr. Packard was an Odd Fellow, having been a charter member of Massasoit Lodge, No. 69, organized in March, 1845. He was a Universalist in religious faith, and was an original member of the First Universalist Church, which he served as deacon for a number of years. In political faith he was originally a Whig, later becoming a Republican, and as noted in his earlier and more active life served for years in public capacities, and ever with that fidelity to duty and singleness of purpose that were characteristic of the man.

Mr. Packard possessed a musical ear, which he developed by study, and he was at one time the leader of a brass band at Brockton Heights, and for a time was also leader of Martland’s band of Brockton, his favorite instrument being the cornet, which he played with skill.

On Jan. 12, 1844, Mr. Packard married Nancy G. Reeves, daughter of Henry Reeves, of Wayland, Mass., and she passed away July 10, 1845. On June 15, 1847, he married (second) Abby Heard, daughter of Newell and Jerusha (Grout) Heard, of Wayland, Mass., and to this union were born children as follows:

  1. Clara Gray Packard, born Sept. 28, 1849, married Charles W. Sumner, and died Feb. 13, 1875
  2. Warren Newell Packard, born April 8, 1852, died Oct. 11, 1861
  3. Elmer C. Packard, born March 8, 1854, is mentioned below
  4. Marion Heard Packard, born July 9, 1855, died Nov. 7, 1879
  5. Allen Ellis Packard, born March 5, 1859, married Etta M. Cobb, and died July 9, 1894
  6. Horace Newell Packard, born Dec. 12, 1862, married Bertha H. Ramsdell, and died at Saratoga, N. Y.
  7. Isabel Abby Packard, born Jan. 3, 1868, resides at Saratoga, N. Y.

Mr. Packard passed away Oct. 25, 1887, and his widow passed away April 12, 1894.

Elmer C. Packard

Elmer C. Packard, son of the late Ellis and Abby (Heard) Packard, was born March 8, 1854, in North Bridgewater (now Brockton), and in the common and high schools of his native town acquired his early educational training, which was supplemented by attendance at the Bridgewater Academy. He then took a special business course at Bryant & Stratton’s business college in Boston. After the close of his school life, in 1872, Mr. Packard entered the employ of his father, with whom he continued until in 1882, in which year he and his late brother, Allen E., purchased the business, which they continued under the firm name of Packard & Brother for a period of about one and a half years, when Elmer C. Packard purchased the interests of his brother. He thereafter successfully conducted the business under his own name, being extensively engaged in dealing in grain, hay and coal, as well as conducting the mill property, which he developed steadily.

Socially Mr. Packard was a member of the Commercial Club and the Merchants’ and Manufacturers’ Club of Brockton. He was also a member of Banner Lodge, No. 81, New England Order of Protection. In political faith he was a Republican, with independent tendencies.

On Dec. 27, 1880, Mr. Packard was united in marriage to Hattie L. Tucker, who was born Oct. 19, 1857, daughter of Nathan and Almira L. (Brett) Tucker, of East Stoughton, now Avon, Mass., and to this union have been born two sons, as follows:

  1. Nathan Ellis Packard, born June 27, 1882, who was educated in the schools of his native town and resides at home

Mrs. Hattie L. (Tucker) Packard is descended from historic old New England ancestry through several lines, as follows:

Tucker. The Tucker family is ancient in New England, and has arms of record for 1079 and 1080. George Tucker, of Milton-next-Gravesend, England, was a man of note in that ancient place. Queen Elizabeth conveyed the manor to him in 1572. Of the twelve principal inhabitants of Gravesend and Milton in 1572 George Tucker is mentioned as third. Henry Tucker was mayor of Gravesend and Milton in 1637. Soon after this the Tucker family disappears and no further trace of it is found in the records of Gravesend and Milton, confirming the generally accepted tradition that about this time the younger members of the family immigrated to America.

Robert Tucker, born in 1602, is supposed to have come to this country with a company from Weymouth, England, with Rev. Dr. Hull, to Weymouth, Mass., where he was in 1675. He later removed to Gloucester, where he was recorder, and where it is probable that some of his children were born. He returned to Weymouth and held several important offices there. About the time the town of Milton was incorporated, 1662, he removed thither and purchased several adjoining lots on Brush Hill, embracing in all about one hundred and seventeen acres, and bordering on lands that his son James had purchased some time previously. He was town clerk for several years and deputy to the General Court. He was active in the church. He married Elizabeth Allen. He died March 11, 1682-83.
