Abstract
Contains the papers of the Stabler family of Brooklyn, N.Y., and Greenwich, Ct., and their collateral lines. The collection spans six generations of a Quaker family and includes diaries, daybooks, albums, pictures, and voluminous correspondence concerned primarily with family issues. Louisa Merritt Field (1826-1914) married Edward Hartshorne Stabler (1813-1877) in 1859. He was the son of Edward Stabler (1769-1831), an Alexandria, Virginia, druggist, by his second wife, Mary Hartshorne. They had three children: Mary Cope (1862-69), Edward Lincoln Stabler (1865-1959) who married Elizabeth Tubby, and Louise M. Stabler (1868-1954) who married George Howard Parker. Louisa M. Field was the daughter of Richard Field and Deborah Merritt Field of New York Monthly Meeting. Her father built the house on Willow Street, Brooklyn, in 1838, and the house remained in the family until 1922 when Edward H. and Louisa Stabler’s son, Edward L. Stabler, and his family moved to Greenwich, Ct. Louisa had four maiden aunts who lived at Pine Cottage, Port Chester, West Chester Co., N.Y. Sisters Sarah and Hannah kept daybooks from 1857-1879, and their niece, Louisa M. (Field) Stabler, continued this habit, maintaining daybooks from 1851-1899 and 1907-1912. In 1890, Edward Lincoln Stabler (1865-1959), the middle child and only son of Louisa M. and Edward H. Stabler, married Elizabeth Tubby (1866-1951). He worked at Manhattan Life Insurance in New York. She was the daughter of Josiah and Phebe Anna (Bunker) Tubby, also of Brooklyn. In 1894, Louise M. Stabler (1868-1954), the youngest child of Louisa M. and Edward H. Stabler and nicknamed “Lulu” as a child, was married to George Howard Parker. Louisa was in the first graduating class of Barnard College, and her husband was a prominent zoologist and professor at Harvard. Edward L. and Elizabeth (Tubby) Stabler had four children. The eldest of these was Eleanor Merritt Stabler (1892-1986). In 1914 she married Charles Franklin Brooks, who became a professor at Clark University in Massachusetts and then Harvard University and director of the Blue Hill Meteorology Observatory. The Brooks family lived in Milton, Mass., and summered in Silver Lake, New Hampshire.

Background note:
Field-Stabler Family: Louisa Merritt Field (1826-1914) married Edward Hartshorne Stabler (1813-1877) in 1859. He was the son of Edward Stabler (1769-1831), an Alexandria, Virginia, druggist, by his second wife, Mary Hartshorne. Edward H. Stabler was the third child of this second marriage, and like his father and brothers, became a druggist. His uncle, William Stabler (1767-1806) married Deborah Pleasants (ca. 1763-1854), a Quaker minister, and their family removed to Sandy Spring, Md. His older sister, Mary, married John Leadbeater who succeeded his father-in-law in the Alexandria drug store. Edward H. Stabler established a drug company in Baltimore, Md.

Edward H. Stabler married first, in 1833, Mary Jefferis (1813-1857), and there were two children by this marriage, Lydia (1834-1883) and Edward J. Stabler, who died in infancy. Lydia did not marry, served as assistant clerk of the Baltimore Yearly Meeting of Women Friends (Hicksite), and corresponded with her young half-siblings. Edward H. Stabler married secondly, in 1859, Louisa M. Field; she was 32 at the time of their marriage, and he was fourteen years her senior. They lived in Baltimore, Md., until they removed to Brooklyn in 1866. They had three children: Mary Cope (1862-1869), Edward Lincoln Stabler (1865-1959) who married Elizabeth Tubby, and Louise M. Stabler (1868-1954) who married George Howard Parker. Edward H. Stabler died in February 1877 when his youngest daughter was only eight. His widow, Louisa, lived until 1914.

Louisa M. Field was the daughter of Richard Field (1793-1875) and Deborah Merritt Field (1797-1875) of New York Monthly Meeting. Her older brother, Charles M. Field, married Anna Cromwell. Louisa’s parents lived on Willow Street in Brooklyn, and that is where Louisa and Edward H. Stabler lived after 1866. Louisa was descended from the Fields of Purchase Monthly Meeting. Her grandfather, Aaron Field (1764-1844), married Jane Haviland. Aaron’s grandfather, Robert Field, manumitted the slave Cuffy in 1776. The family owned extensive property in Greenwich, Connecticut. Richard Field built the house on Willow Street in 1838, and the house remained in the family until 1922 when Edward H. and Louisa’s son, Edward L. Stabler, and his family moved to Greenwich.

Louisa had four maiden aunts (Sarah, Ann, Eliza, and Hannah) who lived at Pine Cottage, Port Chester, West Chester Co., N.Y. Eliza Field (1801-1871) was a lifelong invalid, and her sisters wrote an account of her illness and travails. Sisters Sarah Field (1797-1879) and Hannah Field (1804-1903) kept daybooks from 1857-1879, and their niece, Louisa M. (Field) Stabler, continued this habit, maintaining daybooks from 1851-1899 and 1907-1912.

Tubby-Stabler Family: In 1890, Edward Lincoln Stabler (1865-1959), the middle child and only son of Louisa M. and Edward H. Stabler, married Elizabeth Tubby (1866-1951) in 1890. Both had been students at Friends’ Seminary, Brooklyn. He was a graduate of Columbia University and worked at Manhattan Life Insurance in New York. She was the daughter of Josiah T. Tubby (1828-1909) and Phebe Anna (Bunker) Tubby (1832-1922), also of Brooklyn.. Phebe Anna was born in Boston, but was part of the Bunker family of Nantucket, the daughter of Paul and Almira (Starbuck) Bunker. Josiah T. and Phebe Anna spent several years in the late 1850s in Des Moines, Iowa.

Elizabeth Tubby was the second of their six children. Her older sister, Almira B. Tubby (1860-1926) and a younger sister, Elsie, were particularly close to the family, and Elsie Tubby maintained a close friendship with Louise M. Stabler, Edward L’s sister. Elsie died suddenly in January1893 shortly before her planned marriage to Charles Woodbridge.

Edward L. and his sister Louise, or Lulu, visited their much older sister Lydia Stabler (1834-1883), who lived in Baltimore, Maryland, indicating a continuing relationship with the Maryland branch of the Stabler family. Edward L. and Elizabeth Stabler maintained an active correspondence with their children and grandchildren.

Stabler-Parker Family: In 1894, Louise M. Stabler (1868-1954), the youngest child of Louisa M. and Edward H. Stabler and nicknamed “Lulu” as a child, was married to George Howard Parker (1864-1955). Louise was in the first graduating class of Barnard College, and her husband was a pioneer in experimental zoology and professor at Harvard. George Howard Parker was born in Philadelphia and educated at Harvard. He was a founder of the Woods Hole Laboratory. Louise kept detailed journals before her marriage, from 1886-1895, and the couple corresponded regularly, receiving letters from family members. They had no children and traveled widely. Their home in Cambridge, MA, was a gathering place for students and family, and they generously funded the educations of their nieces and nephews. Louise was active in civic affairs and an expert horticulturalist.

Stabler-Brooks Family: Edward L. and Elizabeth (Tubby) Stabler had four children. The eldest of these was Eleanor Merritt Stabler (1892-1986) who in 1914 married Charles Franklin Brooks (1891-1958), who became a professor at Clark University in Massachusetts and then Harvard University. He was the director of the Blue Hill Meteorological Observatory in Milton, Mass. The Brooks family lived in Milton, Mass., and summered in Silver Lake, New Hampshire. Eleanor and her parents, together with her siblings, Anna B. (ABS), Howard Parker, who married Margaret van Alstyne, and Edward Russell Stabler who married Amna Cope, maintained an active correspondence.

Eleanor and Charles had seven children, Edward M., Margaret, Sylvia, Barbara, Edith, Norman, and Frona. Their second child, Margaret, was born October 23, 1917, and died December 31, 1997. She was married June 21, 1941, to Philip Weber Morse. They had three children; their daughter Eleanor Lincoln Morse is a graduate of Swarthmore College and the donor of the collection.

Administrative and Other Descriptive Information

Restrictions
Collection is open for research.

Copyright has not been assigned to Friends Historical Library All requests for permission to publish or quote from manuscripts must be submitted in to the Director.

Acquisition Information
Deposit, Eleanor Lincoln Morse, 2002, 2003, and Elizabeth Stabler, 2003.

The bulk of the collection was given by Eleanor Lincoln Morse, a Swarthmore College graduate and direct descendent of the Stabler family. Her mother and grandmother compiled the collection. Additional material mostly concerning Louise Merritt Stabler Parker and Edward L. and Elizabeth T. Stabler, was received from Elizabeth Stabler. This material was part of the estate of her father, Howard Parker Stabler, the oldest son of Edward L. and Elizabeth T. Stabler and executor of their estate.

Processing information
Richard Field built the house on Willow Street, Brooklyn, in 1838, and the house remained in the family until 1922 when Edward H. and Louisa’s son, Edward L. Stabler, and his family moved to Greenwich. Family correspondence and papers were ultimately descended to the donor’s grandmother, Eleanor Stabler Brooks. Her daughter, Margaret Brooks Morse, sorted and organized the papers.

Much of the correspondence was sorted by recipient, and that basic order has been retained and adapted into family series. Major groups of correspondence have been arranged chronologically and then by sender. An exception is the group of letters of Louise M. Stabler to her mother, Louisa M. Stabler, while Louise was touring Europe in 1892. These have been stored with Louise’s other diaries rather than with correspondence.

Queen Street meeting house records removed to RG 2, Quaker Meeting Records, as have a small number of miscellaneous Quaker papers. Photographs have been removed to the FHL Picture Collection, PA 119, and Hannah Field’s mahogany sewing box removed to Relics. Two books removed to FHL, general collection. Title and inscription photocopied and placed in Series 6. Pamphlets on the Friends Seminary removed to FHL reference collection, Schools (PG 2).

In May 2003, one box of additional material was added to the collection. This included earlier correspondence of Josiah T. and Phebe Anna Bunker, photographs, and additional early Stabler family correspondence.

In October 2003, two boxes of material were received from Elizabeth Stabler, who is the daughter of Howard Parker Stabler. This included diaries (1882, 1886), photographs, and related material concerning Louise Merritt Stabler Parker, and daybooks, marriage certificates and other papers primarily concerning Edward Lincoln and Elizabeth Tubby Stabler. A complete inventory of this material is filed with administrative papers for the collection. The additional material was integrated into the appropriate series.

    Series 3: Tubby-Stabler Family, 1824-1958

    In 1890, Edward Lincoln Stabler (1865-1959), the middle child and only son of Louisa M. and Edward H. Field, married Elizabeth Tubby (1866-1951). She was the daughter of Josiah and Phebe Anna (Bunker) Tubby, also of Brooklyn. Elizabeth Tubby was the second of six children. Her older sister, Almira B. Tubby (1860-1926) and a younger sister, Elsie, were particularly close to the family, and Elsie Tubby maintained a close friendship with Louise M. Stabler, Edward L’s sister. Elsie died suddenly in 1893 shortly before her planned marriage. Elizabeth Tubby was the daughter of Josiah T. Tubby (1832-1909) and Phebe Anna (Bunker) Tubby (1838-1922). Phebe Anna was born in Boston, but was part of the Bunker family of Nantucket, the daughter of Paul and Almira (Starbuck) Bunker.
    Edward L. and Elizabeth Stabler maintained a close relationship with their children, and this series includes family correspondence received by them. This includes letters from Edward’s half sister, Lydia Stabler (1834-1883), who lived in Baltimore, Maryland. Edward and his sister Louise, or Lulu, visited their much older sister at her home, indicating a continuing relationship with the Maryland branch of the Stabler family. There is also some correspondence received by the Tubby family and journals and daybooks kept by Elizabeth’s parents, Josiah and Phebe Anna Tubby, as well as a Josiah Tubby journal of 1852.
    This series includes family correspondence received by Elizabeth (Tubby) and Edward L. Stabler including letters from Edward’s half sister, Lydia Stabler (1834-1883), who lived in Baltimore, Maryland. There is also some correspondence received by the Tubby family and journals and daybooks kept by Elizabeth’s parents, Josiah and Phebe Anna Tubby, including Josiah Tubby’s journal of 1852 and their correspondence during their residence in Des Moines, Iowa.

    Series 4: Stabler-Parker Family, 1872-1955

    In 1894, Louise M. Stabler (1868-1954), the youngest child of Louisa M. and Edward H. Stabler and nicknamed “Lulu” as a child, was married to George Howard Parker. Louisa was in the first graduating class of Barnard College. Her husband was a professor at Harvard and prominent and early experimental zoologist who did important work on understanding the nervous system of animals. They became engaged during Louise’s 1892 trip to Europe, when Howard was studying on a fellowship in Germany. After her marriage, Louise was active in civic and social causes.
    This series contains primarily correspondence received by Louise M. (Stabler) Parker from family members and her diaries, 1886-1895. Her trip to Europe journal of 1892 is in the form of letters to her mothers, and these letters are stored with her other diaries rather than with the correspondence of her mother, Louisa M. Stabler (Series 2).
