Lydia Buffum

b. 17 October 1787, d. 8 September 1833
Birth*17 October 1787Lydia Buffum was born on 17 October 1787 in Smithfield, Providence County, Rhode Island.1
Marriage*1 July 1813Lydia Buffum married Samuel Shove, son of Josiah Shove and Joanna Dow, on 1 July 1813 in Smithfield, Providence County, Rhode Island. Following their marriage, they lived for a short time in Union Village, Rhode Island and in 1814, moved to Woonsocket, Providence County, Rhode Island and lived, as reported in 1874, "where the Woonsocket Hotel is now."2,3,4,1
Residence1815 Just about a year after moving his family to Woonsocket, in 1815, Samuel had a terrible work accident that caused the loss of his left arm. He had run the belt off the woolen picker, and was picking a loose piece of wool from the front, when the teeth caught the back of his hand and tore the flesh from his arm, injuring the bone enough to require amputation just below the elbow. The surgery was performed by a carpenter with one of his saws under the supervision of a village doctor. The awkward manner of the operation caused, upon healing, the end of the bone to be exposed for nearly an inch and to correct it, Samuel was required to journey to Boston, for the nearest surgeon. The flesh was again opened and the bone once more sawed off.4
Residencebetween 1820 and 1825About the year 1820, Samuel purchased what, in 1874, had become known as the "Ephraim Coe farm" in Woonsocket, Providence County, Rhode Island, and lived there with his family until 1825 when they moved to Providence.4
Residencebetween 1825 and 1840Around 1825, Lydia (Buffum) Shove and Samuel Shove moved to Providence, Providence County, Rhode Island, where Lydia died in 1835 and the rest of the family continued to live for the next six years. Most of their sixteen years in Providence, they lived in a double brick house on Benefit Street between College and Waterman streets, and Samuel was a charming host to all who visited, extending his hospitalities largely to visiting members of the Society of Friends and his many business associates. All who came under his roof were welcomed heartily and entertained liberally.

In Providence, Samuel was very active within the community. He was one of the first directors of the Globe Bank, organized in 1831, with William Sprague as President, and John R. Bartlett as cashier, and also for some years was a director in the American Insurance Company.

In politics, Samuel was an active and devoted member of the Whig Party, which was formed in 1832 to oppose the policies of President Andrew Jackson and the Democratic Party. In particular, the Whigs supported the supremacy of Congress over the Executive Branch and favored a program of modernization and economic development.

The Party's name was chosen to echo the American Whigs of the 1770s who fought for independence, and the Whig Party included among its members such national political personalities as Daniel Webster, William Henry Harrison, and their greatest leader, Henry Clay of Kentucky. In addition to Harrison, the Whig Party also counted four war heroes among its ranks, including Generals Zachary Taylor and Winfield Scott. Its Illinois leader was Abraham Lincoln.

In its 26-year existence, the Whig Party saw two of its candidates elected President of the United States -- Harrison and Taylor -- and saw both of them die in office. Four months after succeeding Harrison, Whig President John Tyler was expelled from the Party, and Millard Fillmore, Taylor's Vice President, was the last Whig to hold the nation's highest office.

The party was ultimately destroyed by the question of whether to allow the expansion of slavery to the territories. Deep fissures in the membership on this question led the party to run Winfield Scott over its own incumbent President Fillmore in the presidential election of 1852. The Whig Party never elected another President. Its leaders quit politics (as Lincoln did temporarily) or changed parties. By 1856 the Party had ceased operations and the voter base defected in a variety of different directions. Samuel, in Illinois, followed Lincoln, and gave his hearty allegiance to the Republican Party at its first formation. He retained an intelligent interest in, and supported its activities, up to the last moment of his life. He believed strongly in the value of homeland business and "made in the USA" merchandise, and throughout his entire career lost no opportunity to defend that principle whenever and wherever he found the opportunity.

He had a clear head and sound judgment and never failed to give good counsel to all who sought it of him. His son, Josiah, wrote that Samuel Shove "led a very active life mentally and physically, and his ruling aim seemed to be to do whatsoever came to his hand with all his might, deeming all honest work honorable, and only scorning to eat the bread of idleness or of dishonesty."4,5
Census US 18301 June 1830Lydia was likely enumerated on the 1 June 1830 census in the household of her husband Samuel Shove in East Providence, Providence County, Rhode Island. There were seven members of the household, including one male aged 5-10 (Josiah), one male aged 15-20 (William), one male aged 40-50 (Samuel), one female aged 5-10 (Nancy), one female aged 10-15 (Hannah), one female aged 20-30 (likely a servant) and one female aged 40-50 (Lydia.)6
Death*8 September 1833Lydia (Buffum) Shove died on 8 September 1833 in Providence County, Rhode Island, at age 45, although the Buffum Family source cited her date of death as 3 Sep 1835.2,7,1
Burial*Lydia (Buffum) Shove was buried, according to her son Josiah, in Quaker Burial Ground, Providence, Providence County, Rhode Island. The Rhode Island Cemetery Project database, however, has listed two burial places for her. It is believed that she may have been buried originally in the old Friends Burying Ground, as described by Josiah and since relocated, and then moved to Union Cemetery in North Smithfield, Providence County, Rhode Island.7,4
