      Page 23: Last paragraph--"Jacob Wendell (bapt. Aug. 5, 1691), theyoungest son of Johannes and Elizabeth (Staes) Wendel, was the firstof the name to remove to New England, and came to Boston when a youth,receiving his business education in the counting-house of Mr. JohnMico, a well known Boston merchant of the period. At the close ofthis connection he entered into business upon his own account,accumulated a handsome estate, and became one of the most prominentcitizens of his day. He was uncle to John Wendell, the son of hisclosest brother Abraham, who came to Boston at a later period, andbecame associated with him in business. He was of his Majesty'sCouncil from 1737 to 1760, commander of the Ancient and HonorableArtillery 1735 and 1745, and in 1733 director of the first bankinginstitution in the province. In evidence of the fact that he was notforgetful of the early Dutch settlement, where dwelt so many of hiskindred, may be mentioned the possession, by the old church in Albany,of an antique christening basin of coin silver, bearing the followinginscription: "De Gift ran Jacob Wendell tot Boston, roor de DuytseKerck tot Albany, Anno 1719." The Hon. Col. Wendell lived at thecorner of School and common (the Bradstreet) Oliver, of Cambridge, bywhom he had issue twelve children, four sons and eight daughters. Hisson Oliver (born March 5, 1733) married (1762) Mary, daughter ofEdward and Dorothy (Quincy) Jackson. Sarah Wendell, his daughter,married (June 12, 1760) William Philips, of Boston, and their thirdchild, John Phillips (born Nov. 26, 1770), married Sarah, daughter ofThomas and Sarah (Hard) Walley, whose eighth child (born Nov. 29,1811) is our present fellow citizen, Wendell Phillips, in whosepossession is an admirable portrait by Smihert, of the Hon. JacobWendell, his ancestor."
