Capt. Henry Ide, born at Attleboro, Mass., in 1785, came to Hinsdale with his parents when three years of age, and was subsequently adopted by Ivory Soule, with whom he lived until Mr. Soule’s death, caring for him in his old age and inheriting his property. He was early identified with the military affairs of his town and held the office of captain of cavalry for many years. He married Betsey Rugg and had born to him three children, of whom Ivory S., the eldest, is the only one now living. He resides on the old homestead, a fine farm on the banks of the Connecticut. Ivory S. married Sarah W., daughter of Simeon Horton, and has two children, Mary E. (Mrs. P. C. Tyler), residing in Athol, Mass., and Sarah P. (Mrs. Henry Latham), residing in Pleasant street, in Hinsdale village. Captain Ide died at the advanced age of eighty-five years, surviving his wife three years, who died at the age of seventy-seven years.
