Lewis Miller Pomeroy(110) was born on 20 Apr 1877 in Westfield, MA. He died on 7 Jan 1923 in Westfield, MA. Lewis Miller Pomeroy (Louie) began his occupation as a farmer at his
East Mountain Road farm in the Owen District of Westfield, MA. He lived
briefly in Enfield, CT., then moved back to Westfield, MA where he
purchased the old Drake homestead on Russellville Road (c.1909.) He grew
and wholesaled vegetables to markets in Holyoke and Westfield, gradually
adding butter and milk. At the same time he tried to develop tobacco as a
cash crop but the weather patterns around the farm were not favorable.
WWI brought an increase in the price of milk so more milk cows were added
to sell along with the butter and vegetables. Louie's main recreation
after a day's work on the farm was Coon and Fox hunting. The hides were
stretched and sold. For entertainment, the Pomeroy brothers, who had
wonderful singing voices, would sing. "Brother Will would play the old
piano and they would spend long hours on an evening going through two or
three hymn books, each taking a part to create harmony." Louie sang
tenor. His son Ralph remembers being sent to bed early as a young boy,
but leaving the bedroom door open a crack to listen. "They would
sometimes sing quietly, then come in loud; sometimes one would sing
alone, then another, and finally all would sing the chorus together! It
was marvelous to hear!". Louie was also actively interested in local
politics and would volunteer each election day at the ballots, staying
until the votes were fully counted. Parents: Thomas Wright Pomeroy and Ann Eliza Bray.

Medad Pomeroy(110) was born on 19 Aug 1638 in Windsor, CT. He died on 30 Dec 1716 in Northampton, Ma. From January, 1866 Gazatte:
Member of General Assembly.
Medad was born at Windsor, Ct in 1638. In 1659, at the age of 21 years,
"with a robust constitution, thoroughly master of an excellent trade, and
few if any tools, came to Northampton, MA." The town was but five years
settled, inhabitants were scarce, and skilled workmen were welcome.
The town gave Mr. John Webb a parcel of land for his blacksmith tools and
them on time to Medad. In August, 1660, the following vote was passed:
Webb's tools, that Medad Pumry shall have on terms; a pair of Bellows, an
Anvil, a hand hammer, one ---hammer, 3 pair of Tongs, a Beak-iron, a
nailing stake, two chisels, one nailing hammer." Subsequent events show
Pomeroy made himself useful. On the 13th of December, 1664, "at a legal
meeting the town gave Medad Pumry the tools they had of John Webb, as
he lives in town." Six years later it was voted to give him the tools
had of the town's in his hand, by a clear town vote without any
Medad married Experience, daughter of Henry Woodward and eventually
a lot originally granted to Thomas Salmon, which comprised four acres on
northerly side of Main Street, being bounded easterly on Meeting House
1661 the town voted that "Medad Pumry shall have the land his shop stands
which was probably the Webb blacksmith shop located on unappropriated
the street near the corner of Main and South Street. In 1668 Thomas
the remaining three acres of his home lot to Caleb Pomeroy, brother of
Medad, and in 1670, Medad bought it of him. With this purchase Medad came
possession of five acres of land in the center of the town, contiguous to
Meeting House, and very favorably located for pursuing his business. The
line of this property extended from Elm Street along Main, eastwardly to
embracing the property of the late Judge Joseph Lyman. Research seems to
that Medad Pomeroy's dwelling house and shop stood near the spot formerly
occupied by "Colonade Row," known also as the "Curtis Tavern," later a
lot near the Edwards Church.
He left to his son Ebenezer, "the Homestead" with all the houses, barns,
mansions, and all pertaining to the water-courses." This water-course
brook running between Pleasant Street and Hawley, then and for over a
years called Pomeroy brook, after the Pomeroys who did business upon it.
the homestead of Elder John Strong, a prosperous race of tanners existed
through the first four generations, so adjacent on the south in the
Medad line, and on that homestead, lived into the fourth generation a
prosperous race of mechanics.

Dea. Medad's homelot, at first one acre in extent, afterwards comprised
between five and six acres. The house erected by him, 1665, says Mr.
"stood near the spot formerly occupied by Colonnade Row, known also as
Tavern, now a vacant lot near the Edwards Church." Not far from his

and the amount of buiness there carried on. On this homestead, near the

"The Pomeroy homestead is remarkable for the number born
upon it, in the line of Dea. Medad, having military titles, at least
wit, Major Ebenezer, Lt. Daniel, Col Seth, Capt John, Major Daniel, Capt
Elisha; Daniel and Elisha being cousins of the fourth generation. And
not least, having attained a greater age than any of the seven, viz: the
recently deceased and much respected Col. Thomas, in early life
for his kind accomodating manners, and for many years deacon of the
Church." (Nov 30, 1880) Hampshire Gazette.

Captain Aaron Cook, to "end small causes." Several years after and for a
