Major Stephen Greenleaf was by trade a carpenter and wheelwright. When he was twelve years of age his father removed to Brattleboro, Vermont, where he continued to reside until his death, which took place March 5, 1850, at the advanced age of ninety-one years.

As a workman and a citizen, no fairer name is on the list of Brattleboro's residents. As a carpenter and wheelwright, much has been said in commendation. Many of the first buildings in Brattleboro were erected by his hands. In the study of mathematics, grammar, etc., he was obliged to search for knowledge from such books as he could obtain, having no other educational advantages, and few books worth mentioning. It is said of him by his daughter, Mrs. Ellis, that her "father educated himself, long winter evenings, by light from the kitchen fireplace. To get full advantage of the light he extended himself horizontally upon the floor," where he worked upon mathematical problems, practiced penman-ship, and thus laid the foundation of such a character far ability and virtue as won the well-deserved respect, love, and confidence of three generations. His superior native resources were concealed under a modest, unassuming exterior, so faithfully shown in a painting which, to the honor of Brattleboro, now hangs in the Townhall.

In the year 1799 he was elected Town Clerk of Brattleboro, and was re-elected to the office for forty-five years in succession, declining it but a few years previous to his death. His penmanship in the old town books, for its uniformity and perfection, is the admiration of every one who has examined it. Each letter and word is made in full, giving so perfect exactness no one can mistake it. In 1834 he wrote several long, highly interesting letters to his friends, that were published in the Phoenix, respecting the past and present of Brattleboro, and he also furnished that brief though able sketch of this town in "Thompson's Historical Gazetteer of Vermont," published in 1846.

Mr. Greenleaf was a man of mild, benevolent, and charitable disposition; he was amiable and bland in his manners; courteous and accommodating to all, gentle and agreeable in his family; a pleasant neighbor, and an honest and upright man. In the social circle and the public gathering he was always ready with pleasantry and wit to contribute his full share of innocent amusement and pleasure. He was a true Christian, showing the strength and purity of his faith by his good works.400

He lived in 1780 in Natchez, Mississippi.354

Hon. David Greenleaf left home when about twelve years of age, joining his brother John, who was in the Revolutionary army. Leaving Massachusetts in 1779, he went to South Carolina. Procuring a horse there, he started across the country to the Ohio River, meeting with many adventures from wild beasts and Indians. Frequently in traveling over the mountains night would overtake him, and finding no sign of a habitation, he would dismount, select a tree with low branches, tie his horse to a swinging limb, climb the tree, taking his saddle with him for a seat, and would then buckle himself to the tree with his surcingle, to prevent falling if he should drop asleep. Frequently the wolves made doleful howling around the tree, frightening the horse; and the cold would be so intense that he would often have to descend from his perch and run around the tree, clapping his hands, until thoroughly warmed. He traveled in that way until he reached the Ohio River, where he took a flatboat and landed in Natchez Territory of Mississippi, a Province of Spain, about the year 1780. He served six months under the Spanish Government against the Indians, remaining in this Province; and after it was acknowledged, by treaty with Spain, to within the limits of the United States, and the formation of a Territorial Government, he became one of the first members of the Legislature of the state.

He was by nature a man of great inventive genius and a natural machinist. He built the first cotton gin in Mississippi, about the year 1785, inventing a turning lathe to file out the teeth of the gin rags; also invented the square screw cotton press for cotton bales: before that the Cotton was pressed in large bags.

In those early days the women had to pick the seed from the cotton with their fingers; he invented a little roller machine, which by feeding with one hand and turning with the other, a few pounds a day could be ground out. In 1799 he built a gin for himself, and did the public ginning for the neighborhood for several years. In 1816 he invented a cotton planter and scraper. It was worked by one man and one horse, would open the furrows, drop the seed, and cover with a small harrow attached. He also invented a screw propeller for flatboats and skiffs to cross the river at Natchez. At the time of his death, by yellow fever, in Warren County, Mississippi, 13 Oct. 1819, he was preparing models for patents. His invention of the Cotton press, together with others mentioned, were greatly calculated to improve the culture and development of cotton, which was becoming a most important article of trade.

It was not an easy matter to get a patent in those days, so he passed away without having accomplished his wishes; and it is hardly known now that he was the inventor of some of the useful machines which have since been so greatly improved upon that the originals have been lost sight of and forgotten entirely.

He was Assessor and Tax Collector at different times in Adams County, Mississippi, and was highly respected by all who knew him. He was generous to a fault, and full of fun and anecdote. He was a member of the Baptist Church for over fifteen years before his death, was very temperate in his living, and considered the use of ardent spirits as a beverage a great evil, and was never known to use them as such.

There is one other incident in the life of this man that is interesting and romantic: it relates to his first marriage, which occurred during the Spanish Provincial Government of what was then known as the Natchez District. A few years before, several families, mostly relatives, had emigrated to this district from South Carolina. The most prominent among them were members of the Baptist church, who were always regular in their family devotions and worship of God from their first settlement in the country; but the government, which was Roman Catholic, soon forbade them these privileges, and greatly persecuted them besides, so that they were compelled to worship and administer the rites of their religion in secret. The Rev. John Greenleaf Jones, a nephew of the first Mrs. David Greenleaf, in a series of letters descriptive of the introduction of Protestantism into Mississippi, and published in a religious paper of New Orleans, thus relates the incident: 'Thus things were managed successfully for a few months; but an additional circumstance had transpired characteristic of the times, which, when known, greatly enraged the priesthood and Spanish officers. David Greenleaf an accomplished young gentleman from the North, had gained the heart and hand of Miss Phebe Jones, daughter of John Jones; but such was their sense of the wrongs inflicted by the Catholic hierarchy that they resolved not to be married by priest or Spanish officer. They, moreover, believed that the uncle of Miss Jones, Rev. Richard Curtis, being a preacher of the gospel was as duly authorized in the sight of God to solemnize the rites of matrimony as any one else, and made application to him accordingly. But no one, not even the parents of Miss Jones were willing to risk the consequences of having the marriage performed in their house. Arrangements were therefore made for Mr. Greenleaf to go, on the 24th of May, 1795, with a few select young gentlemen, to the village of Gayoso, which was situated on the bluff about eighteen miles above Natchez, and there procure the license from the proper officer. Then, considerably after nightfall, they were to be found on the road two or three miles south of Greenville, and going in the direction of Natchez.

In the meantime the bridal party, including Mr. Curtis, were to be taking an evening ride in the opposite direction, and, lest some traitorous person might accidentally fall in with either party, they agreed upon a sign and countersign in case all was well; but if any suspicious person had fallen in with either company during the darkness of the night, they were to pass each other in silence. At the appointed time and place the parties met. Young folks, however, must have their fun-something to laugh about afterwards. On meeting, the bridal party announced the mysterious word, but there was no response and they passed without recognition. 'Who on earth can they be?' inquired one, in a suppressed tone. 'It's them,' said another, 'and something has happened.' A settled gloom was coming down on that lovely bride and her company when the young men suddenly wheeled about and gave the countersign. The parties then alighted near the residence of William Stampley, on what is still known as 'Stampley's Hill'; and by torchlight, under the widespread boughs of an ancient oak, the marriage ceremony was duly performed and Mr. Curtis concluded by a most impressive prayer, long talked of by those who were present. The parties remounted, the light was extinguished and each sought concealment in the privacy of home. 'A numerous, intelligent, and pious posterity is the result of that remarkable wedding.'

In person Mr. Greenleaf was about five feet eight inches in height, thickset, and somewhat stoop-shouldered with black eyes and black, curly hair, but quite bald in the latter part of his life. He was a man of great strength and energy.

GREENLEAF, David, inventor, was born in Boston, Mass., March 9, 1763; son of Israel and Prudence (Whitcomb) Greenleaf; grandson of Dr. Daniel and Silence (Marsh) Greenleaf and a descendant of Edmund Greenleaf who settled in Newbury, Mass., about 1635. He left home when about twelve years of age, and joined his brother John in the Continental army. Leaving Massachusetts in 1779, he went to South Carolina and there procuring a horse started across the country to the Ohio river. When he reached the river he took a flatboat and descending the river landed in Natchez, Territory of Mississippi, then a province of Spain, about the year 1780. He served six months under the Spanish government against the Indians. After the province was acknowledged by treaty with Spain to be within the limits of the United States, he became a member of the first legislature under the territorial government. He built the first cotton gin in Mississippi about 1785, inventing a turning lathe to sharpen the teeth of the gin saws. He also invented the square screw press for cotton bales, a roller machine, and in 1816 a [p.409] cotton planter and scraper. At the time of his death he was preparing several models for patents. In 1799 while residing in Adams county, Miss., he built a cotton gin for himself and for a number of years did the public ginning for the neighborhood. He was married on May 24, 1795, to Phebe, daughter of John and Anna (Brown) Jones of Jefferson county, Miss. She died Dec. 29, 1808, and he married Pamela Gove. He died near Warrenton, Miss., Oct. 13, 1819.412
