AVc notice in inlcrvicw with Mr.
Locklin AV linwright that ho at lirst
tliought thc graud-dam of IJlack Maria
was Cock of thc Iiock blood, and
thiH bloud ho tliought Morgan. Thcro
was a Morgan Cuckoftho Kock, but
neither hc nor M.r. liarnum's Cock of
Uock could have had auything to do
with thc blood of this maro, as aho
mu-t havo becn brought to Salisbury
by Mr. Dart about 1820, and was then
quito au old miire. Cock of the Kock
was brouyht to Vergeuncs by Mr. Uar
tiutu about thc Baino tiinc. 1'robably
Mr. Waiuwrighl, who was tlien a boy
of sevcn, rcmctnbers confmedly thoso
two ci.-cumtanccs. Ilo says, at a
second ititcrviow,that Cock of tho itock
is tho lirst natno ofa stalliou that ho
can rcint mber, and that bc roineinbcrs
of it ab.iut tho tiuio thcy got this maro.
Suciug that thorc couhi bo no conncc-
ti'in bctwcon this mare and Cock of
thc liock, wo did not luontion lliis in
inlcrvicw publishcd. In rsgard to
IJlack Maria, Mr. Wainwright says ho
known 6ho was thrco ycars old past
whcn ho sold her to Mr. Jcntiings in
1837. AVc eloscly iiucatiouud to soo if
Mr. Wainwright did not think that
Iilack Maria mighl have bccv but two
ycars old whcn ho sold her, for thon
wc saw that sho inigbt havo becn sircd
by this Young Cock oftboltock that
Mr. Yale owncd in 1831. But Mr
Viinwright was po<ivo that tho colt
was thrcc, says bo kiiows this as well
as ho knows auything. Ilo was vcry
suro sho was sircd by Harvey Ynlc's
horso bccauso ho remcmbcrs thcir
brceding to that horso aud doosn't ro-
momber any othcr's comiug thcro, but
ho wottldu't swoar to it; but bo knotrs
thc colt was thrco ycars old past when
hc lct her uo. Sinco tho pnblii.hed in
lcrvicw with Mr. AVaiuwright and Mr.
Yalo wo havo learned that Mr. A.
Smoad got this Young Cock of tho
Rock of John AVainwright, a brothor of
William Wainwright, for whom hc
worKcu sevorai ycars. xins was a
lightish bay horso with long slim ucck
aud very long 6loping hip, of about 950
pounds wcight, aud cortainly, if wo
judgo by characlcristics, had a botter
right to be tho sirc of Hlack Maria than
the Morgan horso Fox. Tho bill of
salo shows that Ilarvoy Yalo bought
this Young Cock of tho Kock of A.
Smead, May, 1831. We do not kaow
that Mr. Smcad owuod this horso iu
1833 or even that Mr. John AVain
wright did, but thero would soom to be
a strong probability that ho might,aud,
if60, it was cortainly most natural for
liis brothor to havo brcd hia maro to
him. Mr. A. Smcad is dcad, but wo
hopo to got moro information on Young
Cock of tho Rock. Mr. Linaloy in his
work on tho Morgan Horso says that Mr
Yalo sold Kox in 1831. Thjs wo called
Mr. Yalo's attcntinti to at tho inlcrvicw,
but ho did not think it of much accouut
as ho said lio gavo Mr. Linslov tho dato
lroui memory, but ho was very stiro
ho sold Fox the fall bcforo ho bought
tlio Saxton farm. Tho town rccoals
showcd tho Saxton farm to havo bccn
bought by him 1831. Comiug 111 this
way, wo put much coutidonco iu this
dato, eepecially as a long search of Mr.
Yalo's papcrs did not show thocontrary
and did show that his rccollcctious
about thc purchaso of Young Cock ot
tho Rock aud tho Patriot Mossongcr
wcro exactly corrcct.
