      !BIOGRAPHY: "Organizer and first president of the Connecticut Peace Society. ... At the first annual meeting there were in attendance a handful of people, at the second annual meeting there were in attendance 5,000 people. Meetings were held on the banks of the Mystic River and would last days. These meetings went well into the turn of the [20th] century, as my grandmother remembered attending them as a young woman. ... Jonathan also had a deaf son named Enoch that he taught to speak and read lips. Jonathan loved learning and was self educated, but found his own system to teach Enoch, who was born deaf, how to speak. The United States had not yet established any methods of teaching the deaf to speak, and Enoch was considered a wonderment. [Jonathan's efforts led to] the Whipple School for the Deaf; ... others in this particular family opened schools for or worked as teachers for the deaf. ... Jonathan was a gentle and beloved man that served as inspiration to many." --R. Gilebarto
