Territory.204 He died on 28 Jun 1841 in Lawrenceburgh, Dearborn County,
Indiana.205 "The Political Beacons" of Lawrenceburg, Indiana: 09 Jul 1841
- Died 28th ult. at his residence, Jabez Percival, age 81. Leaves widow
and numerous relatives. Lived Lawrenceburg about 40 years. Mason. He
was buried about 1 Jul 1841 in Lawrenceburgh, Dearborn County, Indiana.206
Buried under the Lawrenceburg Levee. He was buried in 1937 in Greendale,
Dearborn County, Indiana.207 When I questioned the Librarian at the
Lawrenceburg Public Library, she stated that after the flood of 1937, the
graves from the Old Newtown Cemetery were moved to Greendale Cemetery
in Greendale, Dearborn County, Indiana.
Greendale is due north of Lawrenceburg.
Contact Cemetery in Greendale and check if there is a grave there for
Jabez Percival. (This is copied verbatim from the 1885 Dearborn County
[IN.] History).
Born in 1759 and died in 1841. His former residence was near New
Amsterdam, New York. Just what his early advantages were in obtaining
knowledge of his profession, the writer is not informed. He practiced
medicine for some time previous to removing West. He came to Lawrenceburg
in 1801. The county being new and sparsely settled, he practiced over a
large extent of country. He was favored with an iron constitution and will.
These sustained him in great exposure and labor, incident to the practice of
medicine in that day. It is believed he did not refuse to attend to calls
from
any class of persons, night or day. He thought little of the ornate in his
profession; the tastes of the fastidious were not much consulted in the
administration of medicines. Adjuvants as placebos to remedies, in heroic
practice, were not very numerous. Notwithstanding, he was thought to be
skillful; to have real merit as a physician and surgeon. He seemed to be
quite at home in surgery, if he did call the dura mater the striffin of the
brain, and when he thought necessary did not hesitate to perform even capital
operations. He possessed many peculiar traits of character, and was a
man of
great courage as well as great endurance. We give here several incidents as
illustrations: At one time, he was thrown from his horse, resulting in
the dislocation of one hip joint. Several persons gathered around offering
their assistance.
He refused their help, crept to a fence and got upon his horse and rode home,
without the reduction of the head of the femur. He was chosen and for a time
acted as magistrate. Once a Mr. *-----, a man of great physical power, broke
the peace and the constable and several bystanders were asked to help in
arresting him. They feared to take hold of the desperado. This did not suit
the doctor squire". He commenced upon the refractory man, but as the doctor
advanced, he received a lick with a bludgeon that broke his right arm.
Nothing daunted, though much the smaller man, he seized the culprit with his
left hand, and held him until the sight of his heroism brought
sufficient assistance to him. Another incident: In the days when there
were fugitives from labor, there were also cases of kidnapping. Several
persons of African descent had been arrested and taken on a boat. Those who
held them threatened to shoot any person who attempted their rescue. No one
seemed willing to take the risk of interfering. The doctor believed they
were kidnapped, entered upon the boat and took them from their claimant
s. Another case of a different character in the exercise of his official
functions: At a time when engaged in driving oxen, a gentleman and lady
drove up and informed the squire that they wished to be married. He
asked to see the license. Looking up he inquired: "Do you promised to live
together till death shall part you?" Answer "Yes". "I pronounce you now to
be husband and wife. Gee Buck, get up." Dr. John Percival, son of Jabez,
probab
ly had better
opportunities for thorough medical education than his father. We are unable
to say whether he was a graduate or not.
One of his nephews with whom we had spoken on the subject thought that he
was. He is said to have attended lectures at Troy, New York. He
practiced medicine for some time with Dr. Grubbs at Burlington, KY., moving
to Lawrenceburg in 1825. He continued here in reputable practice until 1837,
when he moved to Missouri and died about 1841 from injury to the spine, the
effects of a fall. Elsewhere in the History of Dearborn County: In the
autumn of 1802, Dr. Jabez Percival erected the first house on the site
of the town of Lawrenceburg and occupied it. It was a double log cabin.
In 1806, Dr. Percival lived on what is now called New Street and at that
time was called Second Street. It was close to the river. The majority of
log cabins were built of buckeye as it grew plentifully and was no doubt
selected on being soft wood and easy to cut. The cabins would present
picturesq
ue appearance during the
first year of their erection, young shoots would put forth from every log
and gi
ve them the appearance of a
large mass of bushes. In 1819, Dr. Percival was elected president of the
Lawrenceburg Sunday School Society. He was elected a director in the
Farmers and Merchants Bank in 1820. Governor William Henry Harrison
(First Territorial Governor of the Northwest Territory) appointed Dr.
Percival among others as Justice of the Peace and Orphans Court under the
ordinance and laws for the Government of the Territory. The first courts of
Dearborn County were held in the double log cabin of Dr. Jabez Percival
on the
first Monday in September, 1803. Under Military History, the name Jabez
Percival is listed among those who served in the Revolutionary War. Jabez
Percival served as Territorial Judge of Dearborn County from March 8, 1803
until January 6, 1814. At no place in this history does it make mention of
the family of Dr. Percival. (Mary Percival French received this information
from Mrs. R. F. Cook Sr., 496 Ridge Ave., Lawrenceburg, Indiana.)

243 iii. James Gates Percival was born on 15 Sep 1795 in
Kensington, Connecticut.9,226 He died on 2 May 1856 in Hazel Green,
Wisconsin.9 PERCIVAL, JAMES GATES (September 15, 1795 - May 21, 1856),
poet, was born in Berlin, Connecticut, the son of James Percival and
Elizabeth (Hart) Percival. From his mother he inherited his melancholy,
from his father, who died in 1807, his sickly constitution. In school his
chief interest was geography, and at fourteen he wrote a geographical epic
called The Commerciad. He was graduated from Yale in 1815 with a brilliant
record, but immediately his unfortunate versatility caused him
difficulties. After vacillating among various professions, he went to
Philadelphia, where he taught school and also entered the medical department
of the University of Pennsylvania. In 1819 he transferred to the Medical
Institution of Yale, where he received his M. D. in 1820. He began practice
in his native town, was a flat failure, is supposed also to have been
rejected by a girl with whom he was in love, and attempted suicide.

Unsuccessful even in this, and rather cheered by
the publication of his poems in Microscope (New Haven), he moved to
Charleston, South Carolina, and for a few years lived there by
journalism. He returned to Connecticut, and for brief periods edited the
Connecticut Herald, taught chemistry at West Point, acted as examining
surgeon in a recruiting office in Boston and edited the American Athenaeum
in New York. He always resigned because of "injustice and persecution,"
since he was a typical paranoic. He studied linguistics, became a real
authority on languages, translated from the Slavonic tongues, Greek and
Sanskrit-all of which he spoke besides half a dozen less unusual languages.
In 1827 and 1828 he assisted Noah Webster in preparation of his famous
dictionar
y.

Meanwhile, he taught himself geology, and from
1835 to 1842 was state Geologist of Connecticut, resigning because the
state would not furnish funds for his comprehensive survey of the natural
history of the region. With a half-conscious knowledge of his mental state,
he became a voluntary resident of the State Hospital in New Haven, emerging
occasionally to do surveying. He built himself a little house without doors
or windows in front, where he might live in solitude with his books, but
neither he nor his books ever entered it. Instead, in 1854, he was made state
geologist of Wisconsin; his leisure time he gave to a new theory of music.
He died in Hazel Green, Wisconsin - "lonely, shy, unmarried, disappointed,
poor and dirty," as William Ellery Leonard describes him. Tall, thin,
haggard,
"With a wild glitter in his eye, startled at the approach of a fellow
creature,"
he roamed the Wisconsin woods as once he had roamed those of Connecticut.
Van Wyck Brooks calls him a "rhymester - vagrant," Leonard a
"Self-constituted,
self-conscious poetic genius." He had indeed all the traditional qualities
of genius, without the genius. Actually one of the most learned men of his
time and place, he aspired to immortality as a poet without having more than
a modicum of poetic talent. He poured forth endless reams of darkly
melancholy verses, fluent and hollow, with only an occasional gleam of
graceful beauty to justify the wasted paper and the wasted life. As a
"Character," he deserves a place in American History; as a poet, he has long
ceased to exist, and indeed in any real sense of the term never existed
at all.
