        Thomas Ruggles Gold was born in Cornwall, Connecticut on November 4, 1764, the son of Hezekiah and Sarah (Sedgwick) Gold.  Thomas was fifth in the line of descent from his immigrant ancestor, Major Nathan Gold.
Thomas Ruggles - 5;  Hezekiah - 4; Hezekiah - 3; Nathan - 2; Nathan - 1
        One of the Grantees named in the Charter Oak was Nathan Gold who had emigrated to Connecticut from Edmundsbury, England.
       Thomas Ruggles Gold did not serve in the Revolutionary War, but his father, Hezekiah Gold did serve as a Private.
       Thomas Ruggles Gold pursed classical studies and was graduated from Yale College in 1786.  He then studied law, was admitted to the bar and commenced his law practice in Goshen, Connecticut.  It was there he met and married Sarah Sill, sister of Theodore Sill who later became his law partner in Whitesboro.  She was the daughter of Dr. Elisha and Mary (Heaton) Sill.  Dr. Elisha Sill was a Surgeon in the Revolutinary War.
       When Thomas was 28 years old, he with his wife, and daughter, Harriett Lavina, moved to Whitesboro, New York where he set up his law practice.  He like so many others of Connecticut succumbed to the call to the Whitestown Country.  He lost but little time in becoming involved in the politics of this adopted state. 
     In 1796, four years after Thomas R. Gold's arrival in Whitesboro, he was elected to his first political office, that of New York State Senator.  He served from 1796 to 1802 under President, John Adams and Vice-President, Thomas Jefferson.   Thomas was a Federalist.  From 1797 to 1801, he served as Assistant Attorney General for the State of New York (at this time it was legal for a man to hold two state offices at the same time).  Peggy's Note: In George Washington Irving's book the Life of George Washington, a letter to Washington is signed by John Jay and Thomas Ruggles Gold.  Copy of the letter was found in the Rare and Manuscript Collections, Carl A. Kroch Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York.
       On March 23, 1799, he was a member of the Aqueduct Association which had been formed to provide water to the future Village of Whitesboro.
       In 1800, he was made a member of the Council of Appointments.  Also, in 1800, he entered into law practice with his brother-in-law, Theodore Sill in the law firm of Gold and Sill.  They operated a law school for many years (many men who late became famous attorneys receiving their training in this school.
       He was unsuccessful in his run for Congress in 1804.  He was elected to the State Assembly in 1808.  He ran in the Federalist thich to the 11th and 12th Congresses, serving from March 4, 1809 to March 3, 1813.  He was defeated for re-election in 1812 as a member of the 13th Congress, although he was again re-elected in 1814 to the 14th Congress (March 4, 1815-March 3, 1817); he was not a candidate in 1816.  He then resumed his law practice in Whitesboro.
       In 1804, Thomas R. Gold sold the land on which the Presbyterian Church built to the United Presbyterian Societies of Whitesboro and Old Fort Schuyler, Presbyterian Church.  An interesting note is:  that after the erection of the Presbyterian Church in 1803, in leveling the ground around the church, Mr Gold drove the oxen that were attached to the plow and Jonas Platt use a spade and shovel.
       During Mr. Carnahan's pastorate over the United Societies of Whitestown and Old Fort Schuyler, he preached a portion of the time on the Lord's Day in the morning at Whitesboro and in the afternoon at Fort Schuyler (Utica).  Deacon Thurston, a grand man, rich in faith, and poor in this world's goods, would walk from Whitesboro to Fort Schuyler during the intermission.  Mr. Gold purchased and presented him with a good horse, saddle, and bridle.
       In 1807/8, Thomas Ruggles Gold was one of the founders in a joint stock company under the name of The Oneida Manufacturing Society with a capital of $200,000.00.  On February 2, 1808, they purchased land and water rights from Amos Wetmore, and in 1809, they erected a 3 1/2 story brick building which was known as the Oneida Factory.
      In 1807, he was the defense attorney in the famous Hitchcock Trail in which a Mr. Hitchcock, a teacher of Madison, NY, who was married became enamoured with one, Lois Andrus.  He purchased arsenic from the local druggist, went home and managed to mix some on his wife's plate of food for the evening meal in a vain attempt to solve his dilemma.  The trail took place in Cazenovia, NY, and Mr. Gold lost his case.  Mr. Hichcock was hung in Cazenovia on September 11, 1807, and reports say that thousands came to the spectacle.
      In 1811, he became associated with many prominent local men in the establishment of the Oriskany Manufacturing Company which was organized to manufacture woolen goods when a shortage was feared with the prospect of the coming war with Britain.
     Thomas Ruggles Gold was one of twenty-four founding trustees at Hamilton College when the college received it's charter on May 26, 1812.  According to land records at the Onieda County office.  He made two donations of land for the college as his support of the $ 50,000 given.
      Upon his retirement from Congress, he resumed his practice of law with Theodore Sill with whom he had formed a partnership in 1800.  He died October 24, 1827, and was interred in Grand View Cemetery, Whitesboro, his grave being marked by a red stone monument enclosed by an iron fence at the top of the hill overlooking Whitesboro.  His wife died on July 18, 1854, at the age of 87 years.
