Overview and metadata sections

Joseph Elkinton was born in Salem, New Jersey, in 1794 and settled in Philadelphia where he established a soap manufacturing business which eventually became the Philadelphia Quartz Company. He was involved with the Seneca Indians at the Quaker school at Tunesassa (Quaker Bridge), New York, where his oldest son, Joseph Scotton Elkinton, was born in 1830. The latter was a Quaker minister and involved with the resettlement of the Doukhobors in Canada. His oldest son, Joseph Elkinton, was active in the Society of Friends in the Midwest and traveled to Japan and China on religious visits. His sister, Mary Passmore Elkinton, married the Japanese diplomat, Dr. Inazo Nitobe, in 1891. His son, Joseph Passmore Elkinton, married Mary Russell Bucknell in 1909; after Mary's death in 1929, he married Anna Bassett Griscom, a Hicksite minister, in 1931. J. Passmore also was a Quaker minister. See the notes preceding each series for more detailed information.

Contains the papers of the Elkinton Family, a prominent Quaker family of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and its vicinity.The collection contains correspondence, journals, and other papers as well as reference material and papers on various Quaker concerns and early letter books of the Philadelphia Quartz Company.

The collection is divided into twelve series:

The bulk of the collection was given J. Passmore Elkinton beginning in the late 1940s. In 1966, he gave additional Rachel Edgerton Passmore correspondence which he had received from Rachel's granddaughter, Elizabeth Lowry Froelicher. Beginning in the late 1970s, his youngest son, David Cope Elkinton, also a member of Media Monthly Meeting, continued his father's goal of creating a family collection, with deposits up until the time of his death in 2002 and subsequently by his estate.

The collection was received intermittently beginning in 1940, largely from Joseph Passmore Elkinton (1887-1971) with additional deposits by his son David Cope Elkinton (1915-2003) after 1977. The papers were collected by J. Passmore Elkinton and other members of the family and organized by him and David C. Elkinton into family series. The collection includes some handwritten explanatory notes and copies by Martha Gregson who, according to J. Passmore Elkinton, did secretarial work for both Joseph S. and William T. Elkinton, apparently helping them organize the papers. Additions were interfiled or added as new series or sub series, including business papers of Joseph Elkinton (1794-1868) and family journals which were received from Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. In the 1990s, parts of the collection were re-foldered and the albums of letters compiled by Joseph S. Elkinton were dismantled due to the condition. In 2009, FHL staff completed a major re-processing, organizing the series into a more logical, basically chronological order, and adding recent gifts from David C. Elkinton. David succeeded his father, Joseph Passmore Elkinton in compiling the family records at Friends Historical Library.

The following material was also given:

  1. Tape recording made at J. Passmore Elkinton's 80th birthday, 1967, removed to FHL Audio Visual
  2. Photographs removed to PA 60
  3. Bound marriage certificates previously stored in FHL Marriage Certificates removed to Series 1 (4/2013).

Scope and Contents

Note: Joseph Scotton Elkinton (1830-1905) was the third child and oldest son of Joseph and Mary (Nutt) Elkinton. He was born as Tunasassa; his middle name was given in honor of Robert Scotton a colleague of his father. In 1856 he married Malinda Patterson (1836-1920) of Ohio. They had four children: Mary Patterson, Joseph, William Tilman, Alfred Cope, and Thomas (who died in infancy). Together with his brother Thomas, Joseph S. worked in the manufacturing company established by his father. And like his father, he worked extensively with the Indians of New York State. A Quaker minister, he also took a keen interest in the Doukhobors, African-Americans, Quaker schools, and changes in the Society of Friends. He was active on the Indian Committee and Willets Trust. In 1866 he was acknowledged as a Quaker minister, and in the early 1870s, he passed most of the business responsibilities of the family company to his brother, Thomas, and later to his son, William Tilman Elkinton. His memoirs and diary begins with recollections up to 1854 and conclude with his death in 1905. Some business, family and world events are mentioned but the diary is most interesting in its minutia of the life of a Quaker minister - details of his visitations to meetings and individuals, supplications and testimonies during meetings and elsewhere by him and others, and concerns and changes in Society of Friends. On a personal issue, there is a one year gap in the diary, supposed destroyed, during the time that his daughter married the prominent Japanese diplomat, Inazo Nitobe, in 1891 against the wishes of the family. Elkinton was involved with the prominent Friends of his day, particularly Orthodox and Conservative, but he also visited other denominations and held special meetings in various venues. The Series also contains significant family correspondence, including the Patterson and Walton branches from Ohio.

Scope and Contents

Thomas Elkinton (1836-1901) was the younger brother of Joseph Scotten Elkinton. He joined the family firm in 1857, and he and Joseph S. Elkinton succeeded their father in the family soap and candle business. Thomas developed the use of sodium silicate and received a patent for a new type of silicate furnace in 1863. The firm prospered and diversified. In 1864 the brothers began a partnership to produce silicates with John Greacen, Jr., and Samuel Booth known as the Philadelphia Quartz Company. In 1868, Thomas and Joseph S. Elkinton became sole owners of the business. Thomas assumed primary responsibility for the firm when Joseph became a minister, committed to extended travel. Thomas married Rebecca Sharpless in 1863 under the care of Chester Monthly Meeting. A concerned Friend, he was a quietly generous philanthropist. In additional to individual acts of charity, he donated parkland to Chester City - he was the trustee of the Sharpless estate on the Chester riverfront, the site where a company plant was established after the turn of the century. These papers were preserved by his nephew, William T. Elkinton, who succeeded Thomas as chief financial officer of the company. William joined the firm in the 1879, with his brother Alfred C. Elkinton soon to follow. The company was incorporated in 1904, and William served as president beginning in 1907. Under his leadership, the firm continued to grow. The business letter books date from 1875-1902 and, according to a spine label, were "Preserved for reference if needed. Wm. T. Elkinton" in 1917/18. Primarily dealing with finances, they include correspondence related to the family business, estates, and schools and organizations such as Westtown School and Pennsylvania Hospital. A folder on the history of the company is stored in this series since it was under Thomas and William T. Elkinton's leadership that the company expanded. William T. Elkinton was succeeded by his son, Thomas W. Elkinton, who guided the firm into the mid-20th century. Thomas's personal letters to his brother, Joseph S. Elkinton, were deposited with the Joseph S. Elkinton Family Papers, Series 3.

Scope and Contents

Joseph Elkinton (1859-1920) was the eldest son of Joseph S. and Malinda Elkinton. Like his father, he devoted much of his energy to Quaker concerns and the ministry. He was born March 16, 1859, and joined his father and uncle in the family soap and candle business. He taught at the Westtown School for a year where he met Sarah West Passmore, daughter of Benjamin West Passmore, who became his wife in 1884. They had five children, four of whom lived to maturity: Joseph Passmore, Mary Cope, Rebecca (died young), Howard West, and Frances Deborah. He was recorded as a minister by Philadelphia Monthly Meeting (Orthodox), and together with his father, worked with the Yearly Meeting on behalf of the Doukhobors. After his retirement from the Philadelphia Quartz Company in 1905, he and his wife traveled widely, including trips in the ministry to Japan and China. Joseph was a founder of the Pocono Lake Preserve. He died in London in June 1920, after beginning a religious mission that would have taken him to Great Britain, Ireland, the Continent, and eventually Palestine. Some of the early letters are annotated by J. Passmore Elkinton, 1957. The letters from Asia are particularly rich with description. For Inazo Nitobe correspondence and additional letters by Mary E. Nitobe, see RG 5/, Inazo Nitobe Papers. Passmore family papers, including correspondence and Pennock Passmore's commonplace book and essays on family members, are included in this series.

Scope and Contents

Joseph Passmore Elkinton (1887-1971) married Mary Russell Bucknell (1885-1929) under the care of Philadelphia Monthly Meeting (Orthodox) on 10 month, 5, 1909. The family settled in Moylan, Delaware County, Pennsylvania, where his parents and other Quakers built homes on 13 acres. She was the daughter of Samuel and Rebekah (Russell) Bucknell. This series contains the correspondence and other papers of the Bucknell and Russell families, primarily that of Lydia Eastlack Bucknell, the sister of Mary Russell Bucknell. Lydia Bucknell (1887-1976) graduated from the Westtown School in 1906 where she subsequently worked as secretary to the Principal for about fifteen years, with a gap in 1915-1917 when she attended Oberlin College. In 1902, she and her sister, Mary, became members of the Society of Friends at Chicago Monthly Meeting. In 1907, the sisters transferred their membership to Philadelphia Monthly Meeting. Two years later, Mary Bucknell and J. Passmore Elkinton were married. In 1910, their mother, Rebecca G. Bucknell, and younger brother became members of Philadelphia Monthly Meeting. After graduating from Oberlin College in 1922, Lydia worked in Oberlin until 1926-1927 when she was employed as a welfare worker for the Poor and Hospital Commission in Minnesota, a job she loved. At the time her parents were boarding at Friends Boarding Home in Haddonfield, New Jersey. While in Grand Rapids, she attended the Episcopal Church but retained her membership in the Society of Friends. She subsequently worked as the office secretary for the Mathematical Association of America at Oberlin, Ohio. In the 1940s and 1950s, she lived in Media, Pa., closely associating with the Elkintons. Later in life, she became an active Episcopalian and interested in family history, an interest she shared with her nephew David Cope Elkinton. The series contains correspondence to Lydia from her immediate family and friends and also correspondence among other branches of the Bucknell and Russell families (including the Gaskills, the Rookers, and the Elkintons). The Russells, related to Lydia through her mother Rebekah Russell Bucknell, were important in the settling of the Midwest, especially the Dakotas. Specifically, Benjamin S. Russell, Lydia's grandfather, was president of the Bank of Duluth, and her uncle, Samuel W. Russell (d. 1936) was an early settler in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Lydia's brother Samuel R. Russell (1900-1986) was a noted South Dakota pioneer. Though Lydia's parents, Samuel and Rebekah (Russell) Bucknell, eventually settled in New Jersey, Samuel Bucknell (1852-1933) worked for a time at the National Stock Yards in Illinois, and his brother Simeon Bucknell worked as an engineer in Indianapolis and other parts of the Midwest and West. The letters of Simeon Bucknell are interesting for their details about the opening of the West and various engineering projects. The collection also contains clippings, genealogical notes and charts, and marriage certificates.
