About Charles Sedgwick

Jeanette S. A. Rice (Sergeant) mentions Charles and his sister Catharine Sedgwick in her 1883 memoir "Tales That Have the Rime of Age." Jeanette wrote:

"Miss Catharine Sedgwick, a cousin of our father’s [Dr. Erastus Sergeant Jr.] was very fond of her [Mary Ann Newbury (Sergeant)] and would invite her for long visits, taking her into her own room and bed, and when she would go her rounds among the poor she was always assisting, would take the little girl with her, thereby giving her lessons in practical benevolence. Miss Sedgwick was at this time keeping house for her brother Charles, in the old “Sedgwick Mansion” in Stockbridge. She was a noble, refined, cultured woman and your mother was very fond of her, naming your sister Kate [Catharine Robb (Newbury)] for her."
