James A. Garfield

James Abram Garfield, twentieth president of the United States, was born in Orange Township, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, on November 19, 1831, the youngest son of Abram and Elizabeth Ballou Garfield. The death of Abram Garfield when James was four years old resulted in a life of hardship for the Garfield family. Despite their reduced circumstances, young James was able to attend Geauga Seminary in Chester, Ohio, and Western Reserve Eclectic Institute, now Hiram College, from 1851-1854, before attending Williams College in Williams, Massachusetts. After graduating from Williams College in 1856, Garfield returned to the Western Reserve Eclectic Institute as an instructor in Greek and Latin. He went on to serve as president of the Institute from 1857-1861. Garfield was also a lay minister in the Disciples of Christ Church, a practicing attorney after he was admitted to the Ohio bar in 1859, and a member of the Ohio Senate from 1859-1861.

At the start of the Civil War Garfield volunteered for duty in the Union Army and was commissioned a lieutenant colonel in the Forty-Second Ohio Volunteer Infantry. He served with distinction in the Western campaigns, particularly during the battles at Shiloh and Chickamaugua. When Garfield was elected to the United States House of Representatives in 1863, he resigned his commission as major general. As a Republican he represented Ohio for seventeen years, sitting as a member on the Military Affairs, Ways and Means, Appropriations, and Banking and Finance Committees.

Although he was elected to the United States Senate in 1880, Garfield never took his seat. Instead, at the Republican National Convention, held in Chicago, Illinois, in June of 1880, Garfield became a compromise candidate for the presidency, with Chester A. Arthur of New York as the vice-presidential nominee. The Garfield-Arthur slate was elected by a narrow margin. Garfield's new administration was besieged by patronage disputes, despite his pledge to reform the Civil Service. On July 2, 1881, while waiting to board a train at Washington's Baltimore and Potomac Station, Garfield was shot by Charles Julius Guiteau. He lay gravely wounded for more than two months. At his request he was moved to the seaside town of Elberon, New Jersey, where he died of his wounds on September 19, 1881. Garfield was buried in Lake View Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio, on September 26, 1881. His remains were later interred in the Garfield monument erected on the grounds of Lake View, dedicated in May 1890. James A. Garfield was married to Lucretia Rudolph in 1858. They had seven children; Eliza Arabella, 1860-1863; Harry Augustus, 1863-1942; Mary (Mollie), 1867-1947; Irwin McDowell, 1870-1951; Abram, 1871-1958; James Rudolph, 1865-1950; and Edward (Ned), 1874-1876.

Lucretia Rudolph Garfield

Lucretia Rudolph Garfield, wife of James A. Garfield and daughter of Zebulon Rudolph and Arabella Green Mason, was born April 19, 1832, in Hiram, Ohio, or possibly Garrettsville, Ohio. She attended Geauga Academy in Chester, Ohio, at the same time as her future husband, and pursued her education at Western Reserve Eclectic Institute where Garfield was an instructor in Latin and Greek. Her father was a trustee of the Institute and a leading elder in the Disciples of Christ Church in Hiram.

Lucretia Rudolph and James A. Garfield were married on November 11, 1858, in a ceremony at her father's home in Hiram. The family home remained in Hiram until Garfield was elected to Congress. He then built a home in Washington, D. C., for his family. After Garfield's death in 1881, Mrs. Garfield remained at Lawnfield, but spent her winters in warmer climates, finally building a home in Pasadena, California, in 1903. Lucretia Rudolph Garfield died in Pasadena, California, March 13, 1918. She was buried next to her husband in Lake View Cemetery.

Lawnfield

Originally know as the Dickey farm in Mentor, Ohio, the property which the Garfield family purchased in 1876 became know as Lawnfield during James A. Garfield's presidential campaign in 1880. By that time renovations and improvements had been made to the original property, including a story and a half addition to the main house. After Garfield's death in 1881, the main house was again enlarged with the addition of a memorial library and vault in 1885-1886. Lawnfield hosted many family affairs, including the double marriage ceremony of Mollie Garfield to Joseph Stanley-Brown, her father's personal secretary, and of Harry Augustus Garfield to Belle Hartford Mason on June 18, 1888. The property remained in the Garfield family until 1936 when portions of it were deeded to the Western Reserve Historical Society and it became a museum under the stewardship of Ivan and Veda Sutliff. Additional acreage was deeded to the society in 1944. In 1964 Lawnfield was dedicated as a National Historic Landmark, and in 1966 went on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1975 the remainder of the property held by the Garfield family was sold to the Lake County Historical Society. In December 1980 the United States Congress authorized the Lawnfield property as the James A. Garfield National Historic Site, a unit of the National Park System. The act included a cooperative agreement between the Park Service and the Western Reserve Historical Society that gave the Society authority for the day-to-day operations, interpretation, and site maintenance. Between 1984 and 1988 the National Park Service acquired the portion of land still owned by the Lake County Historical Society, and the remainder of land held by the Western Reserve Historical Society was donated to the Park Service. After an extensive restoration of the property by the National Park Service, Lawnfield was reopened to the public in June 1998.

Garfield and Garfield Attorneys Three of James A. Garfield's sons became lawyers. In 1888 James Rudolph and his brother Harry Augustus established the firm of Garfield and Garfield in Cleveland. Harry Augustus eventually left the practice, but James Rudolph remained a senior partner in the succeeding firm, Garfield, Baldwin, Jameson, Hope and Ulrich for more than sixty years. The law firm specialized in corporate law, and property and investment management.

Garfield was buried in Lake View Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio, on September 26, 1881. His remains were later interred in the Garfield monument erected on the grounds of Lake View, dedicated in May 1890. James A. Garfield was married to Lucretia Rudolph in 1858. They had seven children; Eliza Arabella, 1860-1863; Harry Augustus, 1863-1942; Mary (Mollie), 1867-1947; Irwin McDowell, 1870-1951; Abram, 1871-1958; James Rudolph, 1865-1950; and Edward (Ned), 1874-1876.

Lucretia Rudolph Garfield

Lucretia Rudolph Garfield, wife of James A. Garfield and daughter of Zebulon Rudolph and Arabella Green Mason, was born April 19, 1832, in Hiram, Ohio, or possibly Garrettsville, Ohio. She attended Geauga Academy in Chester, Ohio, at the same time as her future husband, and pursued her education at Western Reserve Eclectic Institute where Garfield was an instructor in Latin and Greek. Her father was a trustee of the Institute and a leading elder in the Disciples of Christ Church in Hiram.

Lucretia Rudolph and James A. Garfield were married on November 11, 1858, in a ceremony at her father's home in Hiram. The family home remained in Hiram until Garfield was elected to Congress. He then built a home in Washington, D. C., for his family. After Garfield's death in 1881, Mrs. Garfield remained at Lawnfield, but spent her winters in warmer climates, finally building a home in Pasadena, California, in 1903. Lucretia Rudolph Garfield died in Pasadena, California, March 13, 1918. She was buried next to her husband in Lake View Cemetery.

Lawnfield

Originally know as the Dickey farm in Mentor, Ohio, the property which the Garfield family purchased in 1876 became know as Lawnfield during James A. Garfield's presidential campaign in 1880. By that time renovations and improvements had been made to the original property, including a story and a half addition to the main house. After Garfield's death in 1881, the main house was again enlarged with the addition of a memorial library and vault in 1885-1886. Lawnfield hosted many family affairs, including the double marriage ceremony of Mollie Garfield to Joseph Stanley-Brown, her father's personal secretary, and of Harry Augustus Garfield to Belle Hartford Mason on June 18, 1888. The property remained in the Garfield family until 1936 when portions of it were deeded to the Western Reserve Historical Society and it became a museum under the stewardship of Ivan and Veda Sutliff. Additional acreage was deeded to the society in 1944. In 1964 Lawnfield was dedicated as a National Historic Landmark, and in 1966 went on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1975 the remainder of the property held by the Garfield family was sold to the Lake County Historical Society. In December 1980 the United States Congress authorized the Lawnfield property as the James A. Garfield National Historic Site, a unit of the National Park System. The act included a cooperative agreement between the Park Service and the Western Reserve Historical Society that gave the Society authority for the day-to-day operations, interpretation, and site maintenance. Between 1984 and 1988 the National Park Service acquired the portion of land still owned by the Lake County Historical Society, and the remainder of land held by the Western Reserve Historical Society was donated to the Park Service. After an extensive restoration of the property by the National Park Service, Lawnfield was reopened to the public in June 1998.

Garfield and Garfield Attorneys Three of James A. Garfield's sons became lawyers. In 1888 James Rudolph and his brother Harry Augustus established the firm of Garfield and Garfield in Cleveland. Harry Augustus eventually left the practice, but James Rudolph remained a senior partner in the succeeding firm, Garfield, Baldwin, Jameson, Hope and Ulrich for more than sixty years. The law firm specialized in corporate law, and property and investment management.

The James A. Garfield Family lived at Lawnfield, a farm in Mentor, Ohio, purchased in 1876. James Abram Garfield (1831-1881) was the twentieth president of the United States. He grew up in Orange, Ohio, graduated from Williams College in 1856, became president of Hiram College in Portage County, and was a lay minister of the Disciples of Christ Church. He was elected to the Ohio Senate, and in 1858 married Lucretia Rudolph (1831-1918). He volunteered when the Civil War broke out, was appointed lieutenant-colonel of the 42nd Ohio regiment, and served with distinction in the western campaigns. He was a major general when he resigned in 1863 to take his seat in the House of Representatives where he served for 17 years. Nominated in 1880 as a compromise candidate to heal the divisions within the Republican Party, he ran his successful presidential campaign from the front porch of the Lawnfield home. His brief term was spent initiating civil service reforms and reconciling party factions. He was shot on July 2, 1881, while preparing to leave for a trip to Williams College, died on September 19, and is buried in Lakeview Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio. His children who survived him were Mary, who married the president's former secretary, Joseph Stanley-Brown, Irvin McDowell, Harry Augustus, who became president of Williams College, James Rudolph, a Cleveland attorney, Republican politician and member of Theodore Roosevelt's cabinet, and Abram, a Cleveland architect.
