  GENERATION   Two


   NEHEMIAH COVINGTON. Ref: 5675. Born: around 1628 at Huntingdonshire. Father: Thomas, Father Ref: 6477. Mother: Ann, Mother Ref: 6478.  Mar: around

   1648 at Northampton MD to Vaughns, Mary 4030. 2nd Mar: July 1667 at Somerset Co. MD to Ingram, Anne 4936. Died: 2 May 1681 at Somerset Co. MD

   aged 53.  Supposedly the first Covington to reach America. Various sources suggest he first arrived in U.S. in 1652 before returning to England shortly after

   having had a brush with the U.S. law for being a "single man" and was fined a quantity of tobacco (??). He then returned 10 years later with his pregnant wife

   and 6 children in 1662.

  

   However many of these sources are contradictory with regards to dates, so I have included here a number of versions of similar stories for the reader to

   decide which is most believable. Certainly the biggest myth expressed by researchers into Nehemiah is that he came from Coventry, Huntingdonshire,

   England. This is untrue as the only Coventry in England is in Warwickshire (now West Midlands). However the village of Covington can be found in

   Huntingdonshire so this may be the cause of the confusion.

  

   Another source suggests the following: "Immigrated into Virginia in 1647, a colorful individual whose life has been well documented in many Delmarva (

   Delaware) genealogies. From being accused of 'thieving cheese' and 'defaming a woman' on the eastern shore of Virginia, as an indentured servant to High

   Sherriff in the new county of Somerset, in ye new province of Maryland."

  

   Listed under patent of Nicholas Waddilow and Stephen Harsey in 1647, who acquired 400 acres of land at Dawes Creek.  Headrights for the transportation of

   eight persons into the Colony all whose names are in the record mentioned under this. Patent to have and to hold which payrémt is to be made seven years

   after the date hereof or not before 13 July 1647: Nehemiah Coventon, Margaret Nortan,

   Edward Southerne, Nicholas Waddelow, Alice Stewardson,  Ann Jackson and

   Taby Northon.

  

   In September 1649 Nicholas Waddelow applied for 300 acres in Northampton County on Occhanock Creek. The following names appear on this patent:

   Edward Morris, Wm.Stanley, John Thompson, Thomas Key, George Hall and Nehemiah Coventon.

  

   Signed the Oath to the Commonwealth Mar, 25, 1651 at Northhampton Co. Va.  Record for Province of Maryland 1662 stated Nehemiah Coventon entered

   the Province of Maryland with wife and six children and four servants.

  

   In 1666 and 1674 was sworn in as Constable in Somerset Co.

  

   1st wife born c.1626, died Apr 1667 at Great Monie. 2nd wife was a widow, she died 1678 in Maryland. He was a Stone Mason, Grist Mill Builder (see his

   owl's head trademark registered in 1663) & Tobacco Planter. First report of his name appears in Cavaliers & Pioneers: Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents &

   Grants, 1623-1666 by Nell Marion. Said to have been transported to Northampton County by Stephen Horsey and Nicholas Waddelow 13 July 1647. He

   signed engagement of loyalty to Commonwealth of England, March 1651/2. Was before court and fined, March 1652/3 for "incontinency before marriage" and

   in April 1653, appeared before court on account of trouble he was having with a person to whom he was evidently an indentured servant. Nehemiah went to

   Monie section (later Somerset County, Maryland) in 1662, bought cattle from Thomas Leister on 4 June 1666, settled 300 acres called Covington's Vineyard

   on north side of Great Monie Creek in November 1674, stating his age as about 46 years. He married his 2nd wife Anne Ingram July 1667 who was the widow

    of Robert Ingram, they had been transported together to Maryland in 1664. Robert had died before July 1666 and they had had 3 sons, John, James & Robert.

    Nehemiah and Anne were married by William Thorne Justice of the Peace, Somerset County.

   m. (2) ?? Jul 1667, Anne Ingram.  Nehemiah died ?? ___ 1680/1.  He's listed under the patent of Nicholas Waddilow and Stephen Harsey in 1647 (Patent

   Book. 2 Folio 109 & 177 Archives, Richmcnd VA) and under the patent of Nicholas Waddilow in 1649.  Nehemiah signed the Oath to the Commonwealth 25

   Mar 1651 in Northampton Co, VA.  In 1662, with his wife and children, he immigrated to Somerset Co, MD, where he acquired a patent to 300 acres of land

   on the north side of Monie Creek in 1663/4 (warrants Liber 4 Folio 139 Hall of Records Annapolis).  He called his land "Covington's Vinyard."  In 1666 and

   1674, he was sworn in as Constable in Somerset Co.  Nehemiah was a prominent Quaker.

  

   According to information provided to me by Martha Beth Wells she has seen a copy of the deposition with his signature, the double owl mark (two big O's with

   a horizontal line above) in the original records of the Northampton County VA Courthouse in Eastville VA


  

   Some further contribution from Jean LaCoss <jclacoss@earthlink.net> in 2006 suggests the following:

  

    "Nehemiah  (b 1628) was a Quaker and refused to contribute to the Church of England.  Therefore, he was brought into court many times and fined, once

   specifically for fornication before marriage, once for stealing for which he was fined and received "12 lashes on his naked shoulder."  He then moved to

   Maryland in 1662.  One report said he married a Quaker and the Church wouldn't recognize his marriage and he was thus lashed for 'fornication'."

  

   According to "Covington Genealogy Records by Pauline H Jenkins & Antoinette H Covington - a more detailed report of the April 1653 court proceedings as

   follows: "Apri l 1653, For as much as i t appeareth to the Court by the deposition of John Hinaman and Sara his wife and the confession of Nehemiah

   Coventon that he robbed Mrs. Jane,wife of Capt. Thomas Johnson and taken from her a (considerable number) of cheeses and most slanderously defamed

   the said Mrs. Jane Johnson as proved by suffecient testamony. It' s therefore ordered for his robbing and slander that the aforementioned Nehemiah Coventon

    shall receive upon his naked shoulders) twelve lashes well applied and Nehemiah Coventon shall make payment 200lb. of tobacco for the cheeses,for this

   day he be found guilty as confessed. - Executed this day 28 April 1653

   Husband Julian Mezick, was born about 1645, perhaps as a Huguenot in France. It is not known where Julian came from originally, but it's theorized that he

   was a Huguenot, based on his choice to name his land for the Edict of Nantes (issued in 1598 and reviked in 1685, the Edict granted tolerance to the

   Huguenots in France).About 10 years after being transported in March of 1664/5 to Accomack County, VA by John Tilney,, he proved his right to 50 acres of

   land in Maryland.

   In September 1681, he acquired 100 acres in Nanticoke Hundred. All of this land he called Nantes, perhaps after the Edict of Nantes or after the city by that

   name in western France on the River Loire. In 1710, he deeded 200 acres of land on the south side of the Nanticoke River and on Wetipquin Creek to sons

   John, Jacob and Joshua. Julian's will, probated in June 1718, mentions his wife Priscilla and his children.

   The following is an extract of correspondence found on the RootsWeb GenForum:

  

   "I'm reading Charles S. Sydnor, "A Gentleman of the Old Natchez Region: Benjamin L.C. Wailes," Duke University Press, Durham, N.C., 1938. Sydnor says

   that Benjamin L.C.'s father Levin went to sea with Captain James T. Magruder, *a relative,* AND that Benjamin's wife Rebecca Susan Magruder Covington

   was a *distant cousin.*

  

   Levin Wailes' grandfather (Benjamin, Sr.) married Elizabeth Covington, but I've been unable to make a connection with other Covington's who married

   Magruders. In short, where is the link between the Wailes and the Magruders or between Rebecca's father General Leonard Covington and Elizabeth

   Covington who married Levin Wailes' grandfather?

  

   My interest is that I'm descended from Levin Wailes' brother Edward Lloyd Wailes. Thanks."

  

   Reply

  

   "I think I can help you, my great-great grandfather James Ross married Sarah Howard Wailes. She was the daughter of Levin Wailes. Benjamin Wailes Sr.

   born in 1685 married Elizabeth Covington. They had to children: Levin Covington and Benjamin Jr. Benjamin Jr. married Sarah Howard. They had two children:

    Edward Lloyd and Levin. Edward Lloyd named for the Lloyd's of Prince George Co….Lloyd's of London family. Levin's children where Benjamin Lloyd

   Covingtion (BLC), Elizabeth Covingtion, Eliza Biggs, and Sarah Howard. BLC married Rebecca Covingtion, daughter of General Leonard Covingtion,who

   died in the Revolutionary War.

  

   Elizabeth Covington, who married Benjamin Sr. was the daughter of Nehemiah Jr. and Rebecca Denwood.

  

   The Magruder's married into the Covingtion's generations and the Magruder's of Sharon Mississippi married into the Wailes. All of them at some point where

   in Prince George, Co…kissing cousins. Any more info I can help. Some of the information on other website are incorrect. Since you read the book, the forward

    is wrong. It states the BLC is the grandson of Benjamin and Elizabeth Covingtion…that is incorrect. He was the great-grandson."

  

   Response

  

   "Since posting that original message, I have received additional data. The most useful with respect to the Wailes family is: Ernest C. Allnutt, Jr., “The Wailes

   Family of Early Maryland and Some of Their Relatives on the Eastern and Western Shores,” Maryland Genealogical Society Bulletin, 36, No. 2, Spring 1995,

   145-177.

  

   Captain James Truman Macgruder was Levin Wailes first cousin (son of Levin's mother's sister Elizabeth).

  

   Benjamin L.C. Wailes and his wife Rebecca Susan Magruder Covington were both 2nd cousins, once removed AND third cousins, once removed. They may

   not have been familiar enough with their respective family trees to be aware of that. It is evident that Sydnor didn't have sufficient access to the family

   genalogies to know that in 1938."

   (slave) for his son Philemon Lloyd Jr.

   4042.  Mar: around 1707 at Maryland MD to Hollyday, Margery 4055. Died: during 1725 at Prince George Co MD aged 40.  One story suggests that he was a

   French Huguenot, he emigrated to U.S. in 1695 and settled in Maryland. However the more logical research suggests he was born in Somerset Co MD.

  

   He established himself on an estate acquired on the Patuxent River in Prince George's County, comprised in part of an original grant made to Thomas Pagett

   by Lord Baltimore in 1695 and which, according to the title deeds, was bounded in part by "the ancient lines of the Qunraico Manor", the original Indian name,

   it is presumed, of the place which is now known as "Aquasco".

  

   There, at an early age he died in the family mansion erected in 1725, and there were born and raised his descendents for three generations.

  

   His will written 27 Jan 1724 and probate 24 Nov 1725, states: "To wife Margery & son Leonard, dwelling plantation equally during life of wife & at her decease

   to son Leonard and his heirs.

  

   To daughter Elizabeth & heirs 500 acre Hollydays Choyce. Residual of real estate on both Eastern & western shore, to be sold by executors if necessary for

   payment of debts: if not sold to be divided equally between son & daughter aforesaid equally. Executors to confirm sale of tract formerly bought off Thomas

   Paggett to Abraham Wilson & heirs for £100.

  

   To wife, son & daughter residue of personal estate equally" - Overseers Leonard Hollyday, James Hollyday, Bejamin Wailes, Robert King.

   Mar: 22 Oct 1789 at Aquasco MD to Somerville, Susannah 4169. 2nd Mar: around 1796 at Maryland to Mackall, Rebecca 3737. Died: 14 Nov 1813 at French

    Mills NY aged 45.  Left school at an early age to the care of a widowed mother, he and a younger brother, received a good English education and made such

   acquaintance with the classics as the local institutions of learning of that day could impart. Nurtured in the midst of the U.S. revolutionary struggle for

   independence, it is probable that the scenes by which he was surrounded may have given that direction to his ambition and inspired that love of country which

   devoted him to her defence and controlled his latter destiny.

  

   Among the earliest recollections of his childhood was the watching from an eminence at his home, commanding an extensive view down the Patuxent, the

   predatory parties of the British soldiery, who in their boat excursions were want to ravage and plunder the estates bordering upon the river; the same point

   from which he witnessed the burning of the mansion of a near relative at Hallowing Point, opposite Benedict, by these marauders.

  

   Arrived at manhood and having grown to be a big, raw boned 6 footer who enjoyed running and wrestling, his country firmly established under a free

   government and with the prospect of a career of prosperity, he contracted an early marriage, and settled down upon his paternal acres in the avocation of a

   planter, that of his ancestors, with little expection that the career upon which he had entered would be changed to one of strife and perilous adventure.

  

   His wife and first child died soon after 1790 and this tragedy gave him the wandering habit. Of those deaths, he wrote; " made a wreck of my domestic

   enjoyments and rendered distasteful my rural pursuits". He went to Philadelphia, dallied with the law and worked as an aide to Thomas Jefferson, then

   Secretary of State, splitting his time there and managing the family estates back home. Restless at 23, he entered the United States Army as a cornet of

   Cavalry on 14 March 1792.

  

   Commissioned Lieutenant of Dragoons by General Washington in 1793 and volunteered to fight Indians with Gen. "Mad Anthony" Wayne, a cavalryman who

   learned military tactics and mastered several Indian languages. While moving about in the northwest frontier, Covington struck up a close relationship with

   Merry Rivers, a beautiful, young, half-Irish, half-Indian maiden, whose father built forts for the Army. She travelled with him for several years and "cared for

   Covington's clothes, cooked meals and took care of his manly needs".

  

   He scouted for Wayne, located sites for forts, and at two major battles, Fort Recovery and Fallen Timbers, Miami, distinguished himself in battle. Wayne

   praised him in official reports for his "courageous, forceful" deeds and leadership. For his energetic charges, jumping over obstacles as in a steeple-chase,

   Indians gave him a name and reputation: "The Wind of Wayne". While Wayne was negotiating, Covington continued to go scouting for fort sites and

   settlements but returned to find that his love, Merry Rivers, had died of a summer fever. Although promoted to a captaincy he resigned 12 September 1795 to

   engage in further agricultural pursuits and politics back in Maryland.

  

   2nd Marriage; c.1796 to Mackall, Rebecca & had 6 children, all names not known. He did some surveying for Jefferson, his old boss, and was sometimes a

   guest at Mount Vernon. Farming was not always prosperous when tobacco prices fell, and its production wore out the land.

  

   Covington and his brother kept looking for "a land of promise" even while he, the good Jeffersonian, served both for the Marland Senate and the House of

   Representatives. The frugal Covington didn't  like Annapolis or Washington, judging from his letters, which complained about too much spending, too much

   drinking and gambling, and too much "swish-swish" from powdered ladies. "Those epicurean Gents not faithful to their wives will fritter away their marriages,

   rob their children, and break down the foundation of their existence".

  

   He had been a member of the State House of Delegates for many years and was elected as a Democrat to the 9th Congress (4 March 1805 to 3 March

   1807), but he was a man of the outdoors, the frontier. He was appointed by his friend, now President Jefferson as Lieutenant Colonel of the regiment of Light

   Dragoons on 9 January 1809 and as Colonel on 15 February 1809, the only such regiment in the military. That year, he moved his family to the frontier of

   Mississippi and bought a plantation near Natchez that he called "Propinquity" because it was close to his base.

  

   Was in command at Fort Adams on the Mississippi in 1810 and took prossession of Baton Rouge and a portion of West Florida, making these years his best.

    He was training troops, skirmishing with Indians, surveying the wild country in Alabama and Florida, battling the Spanish, living outdoors, but able to return to

   his wife and plantation.

  

   When war was declared on Britain he was called back to Washington, ordered to the northern frontier and appointed Brigadier General by President Madison

   on 1 August 1813. He didn't like it but never flinched from an order. From Baltimore, he wrote to his brother "I long for victory and return to the embrace of my


   sweet family … If you must worry, do so about the strange gods of war". In November 1813 he was part of an invasion army of 8,000 men on 300 boats that

   had started at Sachets Harbour, N.Y, and floated down the St Lawrence River amid the Thousand Islands. To move around dangerous rapids, the army had to

   land several times, and then back again to the water. Canadian Militia, with their Indian allies, resisted. Covington, the cavalryman par excellence, helped beat

   back these nipping attacks.

  

   On 11 November 1813, the Americans ran into a combined British-Canadian force, some 1,500 in all, near Williamsburg, Upper Canada, Ontario, some 70

   miles from Montreal. The Battle of Chrysler's Field was fierce, one-fifth of those in it were killed or wounded. Covington led an attack on the enemy's right flank

   and helped drive them back. He was still on his horse urging his men forward against a second line of defence when a sharpshooter from a farmhouse shot

   him through the body. He fell where he always fought, at the head of his men, and survived but two days before he died at Frenchs Mills, New York on 14

   November 1813. The campaign designed by Gen. James Wilkinson to capture Montreal, proved to be a dismal failure and all were turned back.During his

   final 48 hours he lamented to his aide-de-camp Lt. Col. Winfield Scott and others, that he had to die so far from his wife, his six children and his brother.

  

   His last words were recorded as being "Independence forever". He was buried at French Fields, where Fort Covington, N.Y. was established by the Canadian

   border and named after him. Seven years later his remains along with those of other fallen veterans were removed to Sackets Harbour, Jefferson County, New

    York, on 13 August 1820 and the place of burial is now known as Mount Covington.

  

   Covington, Louisiana; Fort Covington, New York; Covington, Kentucky; Covington, Georgia; Covington, Ohio; Covington County, Alabama; Covington, New

   York; Covington, Pennsylvania and Covington County, Mississippi, are named after him.

  

   “Fort Covington Namesake Died Leading Troops” - article by Erik M Zissu - Times Statt Writer

  

   FORT COVINGTON - A British sharpshooter leveled his weapon and shortened the life of Brigadier General Leonard Covington 176 years ago.

  

   “He fell where he always fought, at the head of his men, and survived but two days," according to a serialization of a work by historian Leonard Jamison.

  

   General Covington was killed while on horseback leading his brigade in what has come to be known as the Battle of Chrysler's Field, which was fought in

   nearby Upper Canada Village on Nov. 11,1813. The anniversary of that battle this year coincided with Veterans Day.

  

   Fort Covington, previously named French Mills, was named after the general who was brought to the shores of the Franklin County town where he died. But the

    body of General Covington was taken to Sackets Harbor in Jefferson County, along with the bodies of his aides who had also fallen during combat, on a

   barge in 1821.

  

   Today, the location of the general's grave, as well as that of Gen. Zebulon Montgomery Pike, who were the only generals to die during the War of 1812,

   remains unknown.

  

   Historian Robert J. Brennan who says he has the most complete records of military cemeteries in Sackets Harbor, said it is uncertain whether the grave of the

   Maryland-born general will ever be located. But he has been trying to interest a newspaper in Covington, Kentucky, in starting a drive to place a marker at

   Sackets Harbor commemorating the general and his courageous leadership.

  

   Despite this project, the acts of General Covington have been revived somewhat by the placement of historical markers around Fort Covington in recent years.

  

  

   And in 1987, the Fort Covington Sun published 29 excerpts from Mr. Jamison's work about the little-known general Fort Covington Town Historian Jacqueline

   Harvey supplied several pieces of this historical writing that illuminates the general's last days and his death:

  

   Through the fall of 1813, the American Army was battling the British and their fleet, a Canadian militia and various Indian bands. General Coviington

   participated in several of these conflicts that raged on both present-day U.S. soil as well as on the Canadian side of the St. Lawrence River.

  

   On Nov.10, 11 days after the general's 45th birthday, a contingent of soldiers and an accompanying flotilla moved down the river near Upper Canada Village.

   That night, the soldiers were forced to lie on their weapons to keep them dry from a heavy rain. Voicing apprehension about the ferocity of the engagements up


    to that point, the soldiers forced General Covington to address them regarding their duties.

  

   “We have no choice but to onward because without independence and liberty, there would be no choice," the general is supposed to have said.

  

   Whether these words had a calming effect on the soldiers, the brigade was up in the morning and continued to march along the St. Lawrence River toward

   Chrysler's Field. The British also advanced as the opposing sides reached the field. General Covington was not required to participate in the battle, but did so

   to aid the American approach.

  

   As he rode with his men into the fight, General Covington moved toward the British artillery. After pushing them back from the left side of the attack, he

   attracted the attention of a group of sharpshooters who were holed up in a house on the field.

  

   "At this critical moment, while bravely leading his men, he was shot through the body. His fall disconcerted the brigade and a shower of grape shot at that

   moment scourged it severely," one account of the battle reads.

  

   From the battlefield, the general was brought across the river and up the Big Salmon River to a house in French Mills Three days later, he died and was buried,

    only to be later taken to Sackets Harbor where the regiment was stationed.

  

   In 2007 there is to be a new headstone at Mount Covington Demetery to commercate his death (courtesy of Gary O'Dell - Odellcaptain@aol.com)

   Talbot County and the Maryland Military Academy at Oxford. Entered the law department of the University of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia in 1891, attending at

    the same time special lectures in history, literature, and economics. He graduated from that institution in 1894.

  

   Commenced the practice of law in Easton, Maryland. Was an un-successful Democratic nominee for the State senate in 1901. Became State's attorney for

   Talbot County 1903-1908. Elected as a Democrat to the 61st, 62nd & 63rd Congresses and served from March 4, 1909 until his resignation on September

    from Washington DC in 1923 aged 53  (Ellis Island Family History Passenger Records).

  

   His obituary appeared in the 6 February 1942 issue of New York, New York. The Feburary 6 New York Times carried his obituary. It read "J. H. Covington

   Dies; Jurist in Capital. Washington, Feb. 5--J. Harry Covington, former Representative from Maryland and one-time Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the

   District of Columbia, died here yesterday at his home, 2330 Wyoming Avenue, after a brief illness. His age was 71. He had been confined to bed since

   Saturday with a cold contracted earlier in Chicago.

  

   Judge Covington, one of the most widely known attorneys in Washington and founder of its largest law firm, was born on May 3, 1870, in Talbot County, Md.,

   the son of James H. and Emma V. Covington. He was educated in the public schools, attended Maryland Military Academy and the University of Pennsylvania

   and in 1894 began law practice in Easton, Md. In 1903 he was named State's Attorney of Talbot County, a position he held until 1909, when he was elected to

   the House of Representatives, serving the First Maryland District until his resignation in 1914 to become Chief Justice of the District Supreme Court.

  

   Four years later he resigned and, with Edward H. Burling, founded the law firm of Covington, Burling, Rubise, Acheson & Short, which has six senior, ten junior

   and thirteen associate partners. During his term on the bench Judge Covington taught law at Georgetown University, and in 1918 President Wilson enlisted his

    services as a member of the United States Railroad Wage Commission. He was a member of the board of directors of the Kennecott Copper Company, the

   Union Trust Company and the Continental American Life Insurance Company.

  

   He leaves a widow, the former Miss Ethel K. Rose of Brooklyn, whom he married in 1889; a son, J. Harry Covington 3d of Washington, and a daughter, Mrs.

   Lewis Clark, whose husband is second secretary of the United States Legation in Ottawa.

   Website in 2002 read: "Founded 75 years ago, is one of the largest law firms in Washington, D.C., and also has 25 lawyers in Europe. The firm's practice

   includes advice and representation in regulatory and legislative matters, litigation, and transactional work both here and abroad.

  

   The Litigation Practice Group

   Throughout its history, Covington & Burling's practice has been heavily concentrated on the litigation of complex, difficult, important, and novel matters. The

   firm's litigation practice continues to reflect those characteristics and today runs the gamut of subject-matter areas, including antitrust, employment,

   environmental, insurance coverage, intellectual property, product liability, securities, toxic tort, and regulatory cases in judicial, arbitral, and administrative


   forums across the country and overseas. The hallmarks of our litigation practice are the formulation and execution of effective and creative strategies, mastery

   of the law, cost-sensitive case management, and adherence to the highest professional standards.

  

   Many of our cases require us to navigate undeveloped and uncertain areas of law and fact. For example, we recently served as lead trial counsel for Dow

   Corning in its efforts to collect more than $1 billion in insurance coverage for breast-implant claims. In February 1996, after a four-month trial in Detroit, the jury

   returned a unanimous verdict for Dow Corning. Robert Sayler, who recently chaired the ABA's Litigation Section, led the trial team along with William Skinner

   and Bobby Burchfield. The jury's verdict in the Dow Corning case is the latest achievement in the firm's highly successful representation of corporate

   policyholders in disputes with their insurance carriers, which includes: a jury verdict for Boeing in one of the first environmental coverage cases to be tried; a

   landmark victory for Armstrong World Industries after years of trial in the California coordinated asbestos insurance coverage litigation; and a $300 million

   settlement for Exxon on one of its Valdez insurance claims.

  

   In the intellectual property area, we have been responsible for pathbreaking suits to curb the sale of gray market goods. On behalf of Parfums Givenchy, we

   obtained a Ninth Circuit affirmance of an injunction barring such imports under the copyright laws, and our efforts on behalf of other clients, such as Montblanc,

   have yielded similar favorable results. We have provided successful trial representation to AT&T, the American Petroleum Institute, the National Football

   League, and Sun Life of Canada, and we represent Microsoft and the Business Software Alliance throughout Europe in intellectual property matters. Charles

   Buffon, who has substantial experience in many areas of commercial litigation, leads the firm's intellectual property litigation practice.

  

   Our track record in more traditional areas of litigation remains strong. Peter Nickles, Herbert Dym, William Iverson, Joanne Grossman, and Richard Meserve,

   whose work reflects the breadth of the firm's litigation practice, have substantial experience defending complex toxic tort and product liability cases, including

   cases pursued as class actions or defended on a coordinated basis. Bruce Baird, who headed the securities fraud unit of the U.S. Attorney's office in New

   York City, is a mainstay of the firm's securities and criminal practices. Earlier this year, Baird and Mark Lynch defended Interstate General at trial against

   federal criminal charges under the Clean Water Act.

  

   Eugene Gulland, whose practice defies ready classification, has in recent years successfully defended groundbreaking financial derivatives litigation and

   guided the International Amateur Athletic Federation's successful efforts to vacate a $26 million default judgment. Jeffrey Huvelle, who secured a jury verdict for

    the defense last year in a race discrimination suit against the World Football League, represents companies throughout the country in employment cases.

   Arvid Roach, whose roster of litigation clients includes Union Pacific, has an impressive array of successes in transportation and pension-related matters.

  

   Finally, the firm's trial practice has always been complemented by its work at the appellate level. A fair measure of the strength and diversity of the firm's

   appellate practice is revealed by the firm's remarkable record in the United States Supreme Court during the 1995 Term. On behalf of the National Football

   League, Gregg Levy persuaded the Court that the non-statutory labor exemption to the antitrust laws rendered invalid a $30 million treble damages judgment;

   James Atwood successfully pressed IBM's argument that a tax on export insurance premiums violated the constitution; and Robert Long, arguing for BankOne,

    prevailed on the argument that federal jurisdiction was appropriate for certain types of banking law disputes.

  

   The brief catalogue of litigators and litigation experiences provided in this profile necessarily omits much of importance about the firm's extensive and varied

   litigation practice. Gregg Levy and Mitchell Dolin, who has successfully represented Exxon and Owens Corning in insurance coverage disputes, together

   coordinate the firm's litigation practice group and are available to provide additional information."

   GEORGE HENRY COVINGTON. Ref: 5622. Born: 11 Feb 1873 at Malden MA. Father: Henry Dyre, Father Ref: 5623. Mother: Symonds, Emma Frances,

   Mother Ref: 4369.  Mar: 23 Jun 1898 at Middleboro MA to Ryder, Alice Ruth 4410. Died: 14 Jul 1959 at Bridgewater MA aged 86.  Also fathered a still-born

   child 14/3/1917. Although born in Malden, Massachusetts, he was raised in Bridgewater. His father owned and operated a truck farm and nursery on

   Covington Street. As a boy, he worked in the nursery and did barn chores. One of his early escapades was to hammer all of the nails from a keg into the barn

   door. His punishment made him unable to sit down for a week.

  

   He attended the New Jerusalem Church as a boy, where he learned bible verse that he could repeat even at age 86. At approximately fifteen years of age, he

   was apprenticed to J.H. Fairbanks to learn the sheet metal trade for the munificent sum of 5 dollars a year, plus room and board. He lived on South Street

   during his apprenticeship. His favourite trick was to shinny down the drainpipe at night and go out for the evening, then return by the same rout.

  

   While an apprentice, he was sent on a high wheel bike to Fairbanks Store to get some lead pipe. He put the roll of pipe around his neck and headed back to

   the job. Unfortunately, on the way back he hit a rock and the lead pipe was destroyed. Shortly after his apprenticeship ended, he and Walter Little went into the

   bicycle business, selling Columbia Bicycles. He and Walter, as well as Eustace Dyke, remained good friends throughout their lives. He next went to work for

   Woodward & Wright, last makers in Brockton. He went to work by train every day. Once he got caught in a blizzard at work and had to walk home on the

   railroad tracks, a distance of 12 miles.

  

   In 1898, he married Alice Ruth Ryder of Middleboro. While courting Alice, he would stay until after dark. When it was time to return home, he would lay the reins

    on the horses back, go to sleep in the wagon, and the horse would find its way back to the barn. He and his bride first lived in a duplex on Mount Prospect

   Street. In 1900 they moved to 165 Pleasant Street. In 1914, he purchased the plumbing business of Mr Shaw on Broad Street. For several years, he

   conducted his business to 45 Central Square, in the basement of the Masonic block. While driving his Model "T" Ford around the town, he smoked a corn cob

   pipe. The corn cob pipes were often left behind at the job site. When he drove, he looked straight ahead, and he would not pick up any of his kids, even if he

   passed them walking home from school.

  

   He was very good at designing and fabricating sheet metal into any shape or form. His son, George Jr, would go to the Eastern Grain (owned by Walter Little),

   climb to the top of the elevator in the raw cold, and take measurements with a bevel, ruler and paper. He would then take the measurements back to George

   Snr. Who would fabricate the sheet metal. George Jr. then got to take the sheet metal back to the grain mill and install it in the cold. He was very interested in

   the Masons and belonged to Fellowship Lodge AF&AM, the Royal Arch Chapter and the Commandery in Abington.

  

   He had all the ritual on the tip of his tongue and was a great prompter for all the officers. The family would go to Pocasset for the Summer. On the weekends,

   he would take the train and join the family. They took two tents and camped across the back river from Henry's cottage. One of the tents was for the chickens,

   which had been brought down on the train in a crate in the baggage car. Norma, Emma and their mother would gather quahogs, oysters, clams etc to eat.

   George would take the family across the Cape Cod Canal on the Bourne drawbridge to pick blueberries. The car had one cylinder, probably a Maxwell.

   Donald would not ride in it because it did not have a top. They would pick blueberries by the washtub full. George Jnr would be put underneath the car out of the

    sun.

  

   He raised dahlias, up to ten inches across, George Jnr had to dig up the dahlias every fall and put them on screens in the cellar. The garden went all the way

   from the side yard around to the back stone wall. George Snr chewed dark black plug chewing tobacco. He and Foster Parsons owned a cabin cruiser named

    "Vim". For many years they kept it at Gray Gables on the canal. Before that they kept it at Plymouth.. Ma tells about waking up in Plymouth Harbour with the

   boat lying on its side on the mudflats.

  

   Once he dressed up as a monkey to go to a costume ball. Because he was so limber, he could put his leg up and around his neck. A perfect monkey. During

   the Al Smith - Hoover campaign, he made a wager on Hoover who was the winner. The loser was to wheel the winner around the common in a wheel barrow. It

   was such a gala affair, the whole town turned out complete with red flares and music. After his retirement, he visited every construction site in the area. He

   owned a two-tone grey Chrysler, with a pushbutton selector, automatic transmission. This new fangled transmission caused him more than a little grief, mainly

   because he rode the brake. Buried Mt Pleasant Cemetary, Bridgewater.
