Several of these columns were for special counts, and not to be included in the aggregate total. Doing so would have resulted in counting some individuals twice. Census takers were asked to use double lines, red ink or some other method of distinguishing these columns so that double counting would not occur. For example, the count of free white males between 16 and 18 was a special count, because these individuals were also supposed to be tabulated in the column for free white males of age 16 and under 26. The other special counts were foreigners not naturalized, persons engaged in agriculture, persons engaged in commerce, and persons engaged in manufacture.

Census takers were also instructed to count each individual in only one of the occupational columns. For example, if an individual was engaged in agriculture, commerce, and manufacture, the census taker had to judge which one the individual was primarily engaged i

"Fairweather Purchase"

 

The old deeds refer frequently to the Fairweather purchase, but as there is no deed on record in Kent of this property a search was made through the old colonial records where it was found that in 1707 there was a large tract of land granted to Hon. Nathaniel Gold, Peter Burr and several others of Fairfleld for a township in what is now the southern portion of Kent and the northern portion of New Milford, and that they in turn sold a part or all of it to Robert Silliman, Richard Hubbell and Benjamin Fairweather of Fairfleld." That contained some 3,800 acres and was six miles in length from east to west and three hundred rods wide. When the owner died the large tract was divided between his heirs.

Amos
Parent / Name
Speculations



Amos may have been a farmer, shoemaker
(his eldest known son, Alvin, was a shoemaker) or in a profession related to leather.Chatham, NY reported as birthplace is suspicious. May be Chatham, CT (Alvords) or wrong Northrop line.
Names WITH connections - Amos, BurrNames with possible connections - Gerrit, George, Fenn, Elmore, Winthrop, Blaine, Anzonetta /Antoinetta

A number of Fenns have connections to Joseph Line - Second Congregational Church Milford "Plymouth" Amos had 2 known children but possibly more.Amos might have even spent some time in Berkshire County, MA.

It is interesting to observe on the gravestones that widows were called relicts and wives who predeceased their husbands are called consorts.

James Tottingham Gorham

He was born in Pittsford, Vt., 26 April, 1834, son of James & Angeline Wood (Tottingham) Gorham. He married in Ludlow, Vermont, 2 July, 1855, Adelaide Nancy "Addie" Ives (b. on Ludlow's North Hill on the Ives family farm, 16 June, 1835, daughter of Levi Jr. & Nancy (Smith) Ives).

The Ives family had lived for three generations in Ludlow on a farm that Captain Elihu Ives settled in 1785. Addie was a musician with natural talents perfected through the years with study and music lessons. Her parents sent her to Boston to a private music school when she was 17 years old. She was quite an attractive woman in her time and it was a town-wide wedding when she married Mr. Gorham. They moved to East Pittsford, Vermont where they purchased a house from Thomas Palmer. They lived there for about five years. Mr. Gorham opened a small store in their home and they lived upstairs. They sold out to Marcus C. Bouge and made a healthy profit. Mr. and Mrs. Gorham then purchased the main "Village Store" in Pittsford from Robert A. Drake. Mr. Gorham tore down the old buildings and constructed a new store and a new house beside it. They did a prosperous business in Pittsford, but Addie missed her folks in Ludlow. The store and buildings were sold to Marcus C. Bouge, in 1860, when Addie and James moved back to Ludlow. They had plans to move West, but about this time, the Civil War commenced. Men were signing up in different companies and Mr. Gorham, at the age of 28 yrs., father of three children, enlisted. He mustered in as a sergeant major of the 9th Vt. Infantry 9 July, 1862. He was promoted to first lieutenant of Company "H" of the 9th Vt. 13 March, 1863. On 4 June, 1863, James was promoted captain of his company. Addie lived in Ludlow with the three sons, all this time. The War took quite a toll on her husband physically, but he continued to serve. He mustered out 13 June, 1865. They made all plans and prepared to go West. The whole family left Ludlow in the spring of 1866 and moved to St. Louis, Missouri on lands they had purchased. James had plans to buy a store and begin business. But these plans were all was put aside when Captain Gorham died in a cholera epidemic, at St. Louis, Missouri, 21 Aug., 1866. He was only 32 years old. His body was shipped home to Ludlow and he was buried in the Pleasant View Cemetery. Addie came back to Vermont and lived in Ludlow for most of the rest of her life, surrounded by friends, family and memories. In her elder years she moved to Stillwater, Minnesota to be near her sons.

Addie died there of pneumonia, 14 March, 1884(age 49 years). Her body was brought back to Ludlow for burial beside her beloved husband.

Children (born Pittsford, Vermont):

1. Charles Wheeler Gorham, b. 17 April, 1856. He m. in Stillwater, Minn., 24 Oct., 1883, Jeanette Brown. He and hiswife came on from Minneapolis with the remains of their brother James in 1919. He moved to Billings, Montana.

2. James Sargent Gorham, b. 28 Oct., 1858. He d. unmarried, Saturday, 22 March, 1919 (age 61) in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Jim lived in Ludlow from the time he was four years old until he was nineteen, removing to Minnesota in 1879. His body was brought to Ludlow Tues p.m. for burial. Services at the grave conducted by Rev. A. M. Smith.

3. George Ives Gorham, b. 4 Oct., 1860. He m. in Minneapolis, 17 June, 1886, Clara A. Boyden of Minneapolis (b. Hudson, Wisconsin, 16 Dec., 1865, dau. of Philo Q. Boyden). George was a fire insurance agent. In 1920 their address was 1779 Knox Avenue, Minneapolis. NEWS: - 6 Aug., 1926: "Mr. and Mrs. George L. Gorham of Minneapolis, are visiting in Ludlow, having just recently arrived here from Boston. Mr. Gorham lived here when a boy and received a part of his education in the Ludlow schools. He has met a number of old acquaintances and says he has had a good time visiting them. He likes Ludlow and says he thinks it is a pretty good place to live. Mr. and Mrs. Gorham have been in the east for a month and have visited New York, Washington, and other cities." George d. in Los Angeles, California, 18 May, 1940 (age 79). They had one son: Ira Boyden Gorham (b. Stillwater, Minn., 12 Jan., 1888) who married Ruth Gertrude Purple.

Church History

In Ludlow, the Baptist church was officially organized in 1825.  Previous to that there were Baptists in the town, but they were usually members of the churches in Andover and Chester.  In 1800 the first baptism of that denomination took place and the second took place in 1806. The baptisms were administered by the Elders of the Andover or Chester churches.  Church meetings were generally held in a member’s home because they had no church building.

Between 1806 and 1819 the Baptists held some meetings in the congregational Church.  This church was built in 1806 and was located at the head of Depot Street somewhere near the entrance to the cemetery.  In 1819, Elihu Ives built the Union Church on High Street (where the Black River Academy is) and the Baptists held meetings there until they built their own church in 1840.

In June of 1821, the Baptists of Ludlow held their first business meeting to discuss organizing and building a church. The members voted to do just that, but it was four more years before they got the project under way.  At that time most of the Baptists in Ludlow (around 40) were members of the Chester Baptist Church.  A few belonged to the Andover church.

The Ludlow Baptists finally received permission from the Woodstock Baptist Association to organize their own church. In 1826 they obtained their first minister.  The minister preached alternate Sundays in Cavendish and Ludlow.  Each congregation paid him $165 a year and shared the expenses of keeping his horse. Church services were still held in the Union Church.

In 1835, the Baptist Church in Ludlow suffered a schism. Some members, dissatisfied with the church, broke away and voted to organize and build their own church. To raise money for this they sold the pews in the new church for $15 to $60 apiece.  The split members of the original organization disassociated themselves from the Woodstock Baptist Association. In 1838 the members of the new church joined the association and took the name of The Baptist Church of Ludlow.  They finally built their own church in 1840.  The cost to build the church was $2024.36.  At this time they also severed their relation with the Union Church on High Street.

After 54 years, in 1892, the Baptists decided to build a new church on land donated by William Harris Walker.  They tore down the old church and built the church we see today.  Finished in 1893, for a cost of $11,079.52, it is a superb structure.  It was designed by George H. Guernsey of Montpelier.

Guernsey was a carpenter by profession but had a knack for designing buildings.  Other Vermont buildings he is known to have designed are in South Royalton – “The Block” - and in Montpelier - St. Augustine’s Catholic Church.  There are also other buildings in Vermont and New Hampshire designed by him.  We have been told there is an exact duplicate of the Baptist Church in Laconia, NH.  Only the towers have been reversed, with the steeple on the left instead of the right.

Looking at the old photograph of the church which dates c. 1910, you can still see the horse sheds behind the church on the right. The side entrance to the church (High Street side) was the carriage entrance.  Gentlemen would pull up to that first step (which is higher than an ordinary step) to let the ladies and children in the carriage disembark.  They would then proceed to the sheds to stable the horses and then go in to church.  Upon leaving the process repeated itself in reverse.  Today the church looks much the same but there are no horse sheds.  The land for the sheds was owned by the Walkers.  The church was allowed to use it as long as there were horse sheds.  When the sheds were no longer used and later removed in the late 1950s, the land reverted back to the Walker family.

An interesting feature of the church are the memorial windows.  The north window was donated by the descendants of Deacon Andrew Pettigrew who conducted many of the meetings of the early Ludlow Baptist Church.  The south window was donated by Mrs. Willard Johnson.  The east window which faces the green, was donated by Merrill Gasseu of Worcester, Massachusetts.

The oldest part of the church is not a part of the structure, but is the pipe organ.  This organ was originally in the first Baptist Church built in Ludlow in 1840.

WILLIAM CUTLER (Benoni5, Timothy4, John3,James2, James1) William Cutler was born April 13, 1770 at Killingly Connecticut, just five weeks after and fifty miles away from the Boston Massacre. His parents were Benoni and Lurana (Leavens) Cutler. Among William's earliest recollections was the confusing night a week after his fifth birthday when his father had rushed off to Lexington to fight Redcoats. On his sixth birthday he was trudging northward with the whole family to a place in the wilderness called Windsor, where his father told him that he was to help take care of his mother while he was gone. On his seventh birthday he was not allowed to stray much beyond sight of the house, since his scalp was worth $5 to the Indians who lived in the area. In the summer of 1777 his father returned and things returned more toward "normal" for the times. A certain amount of confusion ruled all of William's first twenty-one years, for during this entire period he couldn't really tell what country he belonged to. He had been born a British Colonial Subject, was claimed alternately by New York, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts, and then for the eight years before they joined the United States as the fourteenth State in 1791, he was a citizen of the entirely independent State of Vermont. Despite such distant distractions, the family actively pursued the problems at hand. William's father bought and developed properties, so along with his brothers, he spent a great deal of time clearing land, putting up buildings, and related chores. When he was fifteen years old the family moved up the River to a village named Guildhall, which would be their permanent settlement. Here all members of the family immediately took an active part in community life. For the first two years their hands were full getting their 400 acre farm in shape, and then in 1787 his father took possession of the two mills just completed on the newly named Cutler's Mill Brook. With the completion of the mills, both lumber and grain could be milled locally, thus reducing the costs of settling in the area. William and his brothers often went downstream to interest people in moving to Guildhall. One problem in developing the area was the tangled ownership. Guildhall had been chartered in 1761 to a total of 64 people, among them Isaac Hall, Isaac Hall 2nd, Isaac Hall 3rd, Elihu Hall, Elihu Hall, Jr, John Hall 5th, Lt. Enoch Hall and Daniel Hall, Jr. The later two actually moved to Guildhall, and one of the Hall daughters married Micah Amy, the town's first Treasurer, but most of the grantees continued to live in Connecticut. Over a period of time these people sold their interests, gave them to daughters as dowry, or left them in their wills to be subdivided into tiny interests. William was particularly active in working out these problems, and became acquainted with many of the leading families of Wallingford and Meriden, Connecticut. On May 23, 1799 William married Clarissa Hall in a ceremony performed by William Amy, Justice of the Peace. (Shortly after this time local vital records began to be kept in the newly organized church, and when the church was destroyed by fire in 1942, many of the early records were destroyed with it. Exact dates are therefore unknown during early days.) Sometime during their first year of marriage Clarissa died. Nearly three years later, in 1802, William married Clarissa's sister Sally Hall (Isaac5 Isaac4 Jonathan3 Thomas2 Johnl). John Hall was born in England in 1605. He was one of the early settlers at New Haven Colony, where his son Thomas was born March 2 , 1649. Later he moved to Wallingford, where he was one of the earliest settlers. Dr. Isaac Hall4 was the first physician in Meriden, and he married Mary Morse, whose ancestor John Moss (the spelling had changed) had been one of the prime developers of Wallingford. Their son Isaac5 had married Phebe Ives, who was descended from Captain William Ives, one of the founders of the New Haven Colony. Of Isaac's children, Phoebe married Elihu Ives and moved to Ludlow, Vermont, and Clarissa and Sally both married William Cutler. As William and Sally settled down to raising a family, they energetically pursued several interests. They had a good farm that William's father had set up for him. An interesting sidelight on the complicated nature of property dealings may be seen in a transaction on August 25, 1804, when William and Sally sold to William Dana for $20 a fractional interest in the original Right of Thomas Hart, which Sally's father had given her prior to her marriage. The property was not finally transferred until William had gone to Wallingford more than a year later and gotten Sally's sister Elizabeth to quitclaim her fractional interest which was equal to Sally's, for $60. During the long period between harvests William became a shoemaker, though how extensively he pursued this craft is not known. In addition to farming, shoemaking and other interests, William became active in church affairs. By 1810 he was chosen Deacon, indicating that the church members felt that he was of sufficient character to impose an example of conduct on the community. In January l8l2, William died at the age of 41. The cause of his death is not known. The estate of Deacon William Cutler was first probated on January 18, 1812 when Sally Cutler "widow of William Cutler, late of Guildhall" and Erastus Cutler were appointed administrators. The inventory totaled $2,536.80, a substantial sum in those days. Charles Cutler was Judge of Probate. Micah Amy was appointed guardian of the children, all five of whom were minors. It may seem strange that he would be thus appointed with so many Cutlers around, but it must be remembered that he had been one of Benoni's dear friends, his wife was one of Sally's relatives, William's sister Rebecca had married his son Caleb, so he was really the elder "member of the family." The children of William and Sally's (Hall) Cutler: 1. Benoni H, born 1803. BY 1831 living, in the town of Sweden, New York, later moved to nearby Brockport, New York. During the l830's he went to Michigan, as did his cousin Royal and he may nave gone to California during gold-rush days. 2. Susanna, born 1805 Married Zephaniah K. Washborn, had two daughters (1) Evaline and (2) Harriet. Lived in Guildhall. 3. Willliam D, born 1807. Moved to Meriden around 1830, where on July 20, 1830 he married Ann Davidson of Brooklyn, Connecticut. When he died on December 4, 1870, the Meriden Daily Republican stated "Deacon William D. Cutler, living on Curtis Street, died Sunday morning at 4:00) aged 63. His disease, at first billious fever, changed to typhoid, from which his days of usefulness were ended as above stated. He was a much respected citizen an influential member and Deacon of the Baptist Church Uptown... " The descendants of his son William C. and daughter Sarah A. are still living in the Meriden area. 4. COLLINS IVES BORN MAY 12 SEE FOLLOWING 5. Sally born 1811 may have died about 1827, but no records are available. COLLINS IVES CUTLER (William 6 Benoni5 Timothy4 John3 James2 James1) Collins Ives Cutler, the fourth child of William and Sally (Hall) Cutler was born on May 12, 1809 at Guildhall, Vermont. He was named after the families of his great-aunt Martha (Collins) Hall, and grandmother Phoebe (Ives) Hall. In January, 1812, before Collins was three years old, his father died, leaving his mother with five small children. For the remainder of the year Sally did the best she could with the farm, borrowing help from the rest of the family. This did not work out too well so during harvest season, on September 8, 1812, young Collins was sent to Ludlow, Vermont to live with Aunt Phoebe (Sally's sister) and Uncle Elihu Ives. Soon afterward Sally also left for Ludlow, taking the baby daughter Sally with her. Sons Benoni and William D, and daughter Susanna went to live with Uncle Erastus Cutler in Guidhall, who continued to operate the farm for them. The War of 1812 covered the years 1812-1815. During the first part of this period prices were most favorable, helping the family get by despite their many handicaps. Toward the end of this period commodity prices crashed, with wool dropping from the inflated price of $2.50 per pound to just 10c. They had a poor crop year in 1815 also. Then in 1816 disaster struck Vermont. The "cold year" of 1816 ushered in a cold cycle that would last several years. On July 4th the rivers froze and people wore mittens all summer. In all of New England only one field of corn was harvested, along with a sparse crop of winter rye. Not only did they lose their crop but food had to be imported at great expense. Population growth stopped dead in its tracks. Families that did not have firm roots left for the newly opening stretches of the lush Ohio Valley and upstate New York. Guildhall's neighboring town of Granby dropped to just three families within two years, and property values dropped sharply. The family farm produced almost nothingof value. About l8l6 Collins started to school at the North Hill Schoolhouse in Ludlow. The principal subjects were reading, writing, spelling, arithmetic, and a little geography. Penmanship was practiced with quill pens, as steel pens did not come into use until about 1830. The clerk of the School Board was Jesse Marshall, who also owned the blacksmith shop across the road from school. On January 28, 1817, when Collins was almost eight years old, his mother married Jesse Marshall. The following year on May 12, 1818, Collins' half-brother Jesse Jr. was born. Improving weather by 1821 apparently provided more work than the boys on the farm at Guildhall could handle profitably, so on February that year Sally and Jesse leased that part of the farm that was her widow's dower to Abel Benjamin of Guildhall. Two years later, in February 1823, Grandmother Lurana Cutler died at the age of 80. Sally always had hoped to get the family together again, but this never quite worked out right. While she and Jesse had moved back to Guildhall prior to 1827, Sally died sometime between 1827 and 1830. After their mother died the boys soon left Guildhall. Benoni went to the Rochester, New York area. William went down to Meriden Connecticut, where Sally's family had come from, and took up farming on land that is now covered by much of the business district. Collins temporarily returned to Ludlow. In March 1831 Jesse Marshall remarried Mrs. Nancy Martin and moved to Burke, Vermont. That spring Uncle Erastus Cutler died. With Jesse, Erastus and the boys all gone, the family farm was left with nobody to supervise its operation. Sister Susanna married Zephaniah K. Washburn and settled down to spend her life in Guildhall, so they bought the boys' shares of the farm for $100 each in 1831 and 1832. Collins and Benoni thereafter would never return to Guildhall, though William often visited with the Marshalls and Washburns over a period of several decades. At the age of 22 young Collins set out to seek his fortune. Other than a family reputation of the highest quality, his legacy amounted to little more than he carried in his pockets. He was of slight build, but despite his lack of money and muscles he had boundless energy and an exciting America stretched ahead of him. Unbelievable inventions were making possible the development of rich and vast lands which stretched almost endlessly into the west. By 1832 mechanical boats were operating on the rivers and the first frail little railroad was nearing completion. Such simple devices as matches, which came into use in 1829, made travel both easier and quicker, as travelers in the interior often lived in the open. In 1832 Collins joined his brother Benoni in Brockport, New York, and later that year they both left for southern Michigan where timber claims were to be had for little more than the taking. Collins settled in Cass County, near the Indiana border. On July 28 1834 Collins married Caroline8 Todd (Erastus7 Caleb6 Caleb5 Stephen4 Samuel3 Samuel2 Christopherl) who was born September 28, 1815 at Oswego New York, the second child of Erastus and Polly (Rice) Todd. Though Collins was from Vermont and Caroline from New York and they met out in the western wilderness, they had a great deal in common. Between the two, they were related to most of the original settlers of the New Haven Colony; in fact, where Collins was a seventh generation descendant of John Hall and Captain William Ives, Caroline was an eighth Generation descendant of the same two men. Caroline's Aunt Polly Todd had married Willard Hall of Meriden and lived near Collins' brother William. We have seen how Collins' path led to Cass County; Caroline's was most interesting also. For the sake of simplicity we will consider only her two grandfathers, Caleb Todd and Asa Rice, both of whom started out in Wallingford, Connecticut. Grandfather Caleb6 Todd had married Polly6 Rice (Ezra5 Ezekial4 Deacon Samuel3 Ensign Samuel2 Robertl) and was a farmer all of his life in Wallingford, where Caroline's father Erastus had been born on May 11, 1791. Grandfather Asa6 Rice (Asa5 Isaac4 Deacon Samuel3 Ensign Samuel2 Robert1) was born September 1, 1754 in Meriden (then part of Wallingford) and was destined to lead a more adventuresome life. As a young man he served in Col. Burrell's Connecticut Regiment during the Revolution, engaging in many interesting operations including the capture of General Burgoyne, and the laying of the famous iron chain across the Hudson River below West Point. After the War he was one of the first to strike out into new territory. In 1797, when Caroline's mother (Polly7 Rice) was only five years old, Asa floated the family down the Oswego River on a raft, landing where Oswego, New York now stands, becoming the first settler of that town. They erected a shanty out of light poles which was just high enough to stand up in. It was late in the fall and an early winter caught then so short of provisions that an infant child actually starved to death. Asa cleared the first ground, planted the first orchard, built the first barn and mill, and was the first supervisor of Oswego. There were no distilleries in the area but Asa used to make what was known as "Metheglin" made from honey, a drink so pleasant and sweet that people would "get merry, before they were aware of it and would usually feel full as well or better the second day." Caroline's mother did weaving for the families who were moving into the area. In about 1812, at about the age of 21, young Erastus Todd came to Oswego from Wallingford. He needed no introduction to the Rice family, as his mother Polly6 Rice was Asa's second cousin. On April 20, 1813 he married Asa's daughter Polly7 Rice, his third cousin. Their children, all born at Oswego, New York: 1. Laura, born March 4, 1814 2. CAROLINE, BORN SEPTEMBER 28, 1815 3. Harriet, born September 5, 1817 4. Willard born January 9, 1820 5. Edward born November 25, 1821 On June 23, 1827 Caroline's mother died at Oswego, and in 1832 Erastus took the family to Cass County, Michigan to stake out a claim. The family took tradition with them. The Todd family originally was English (Christopher Todd going from Yorkshire to Boston in 1637 and then to the New Haven Colony); the Rice (Royce) family originally was Welsh (Robert Royce had married in Somerset, however, before going to New London in about 1650.) Caroline carried these traditions so strongly that to this day members of the family will recall that she "was English" or "was part Welsh." When Collins and Caroline were married in 1834 Andrew Jackson was president and the frontier was literally exploding in a land rush that continued over many years. Along with this wild scattering came the development of manufactured goods such as ready-made nails, cooking utensils, mill-woven cloth. In the cities of the east and south these "store-bought" items were easy to purchase, but on the frontier there were no stores. During the 1830's the only means of distribution in the west was the traveling merchant or peddler, who ranged widely with a wagon stocked with all the mechanical marvels of the day, and perhaps with a tonic or two thrown in. This appeared as exciting a career as clearing Michigan farmland, so shortly after they were married Collins left Caroline at home while he explored the merchandising frontier. He went as far south as New Orleans, where he operated a wagon through the deep south for a short time. He found merchandising a rather strenuous task in those days. Fixed prices were unknown, even in the large city stores, and prices were set by what the salesman thought he could get out of the buyer, and vice versa. Collins was too easygoing to haggle with poverty stricken frontier housewives over the price of a needle, so while he covered a lot of ground he made little money and soon returned to Michigan to get back to the land and family. On February 20, 1838 William Erastus was born in Michigan, and was named after Collins' father and Caroline's father. The next summer Collins and Caroline, along with Edward Todd, Caroline's 17-year-old brother, traveled by ox-cart to a farm Collins had purchased near Vandalia, Illinois. Later that fall, on September 25, 1839 Harriet Melissa was born, and named for Caroline's sister Harriet. Caroline's brother Willard soon came down from Michigan and then bought a farm about fifteen miles away near Hillsborough, in Montgomery County. Here on September 11, 1842 Albert Ives was born. He was named for the Ives family and after Prince Albert who had married Britain's Queen Victoria in 1840 and was so popular in America that not only children, but commercial products ranging from clothes to tobacco were named for him. Henry Collins was born on July 21, 1844 at Vandalia and named for the Collins family and Caroline's nephew (Laura's son Henry Augustus.) George Augustus was born on August 21, 1846 at Vandalia (but lived only one year) and Alonzo Egbert was born July 9, 1848, also at Vandalia. Who George and Alonzo were named for is uncertain. Edward Todd had worked for Collins until 1843 when he had married Mary Parmelee of Hillsborough and set up housekeeping on a farm near there. In 1847 Edward went west to Fairfield, Jefferson County, Iowa, purchasing a farm there. Two years later in 1849 Collins moved the family to Fairfield onto a farm adjoining Edward's. It is interesting to note in the Census of 1850 that in addition to Collins, Caroline and the five children, an Adelade Halsey, age 15 and a Michaels Page, age 14 were living with them. There were probably the friends' or neighbors' children parked while the parents were out probing the nearby frontier. This was a common practice in those days Both Collins and Edward took turns exploring the unsettled area to the west along the Missouri River. The public lands were being sold at $1.25 an acre, and population was streaming westward. Good profits were to be had in buying rough land, laying out a farm and selling to newcomers from the east. With money in short supply, land often was used for barter, and Collins once traded 40 acres near Sioux Falls (now South Dakota) for a yoke of oxen. In the spring of 1851 both Collins and Edward sold out and moved close to Council Bluffs, the westernmost trading post. Collins bought a farm near Avoca, Pottawattamie County. Here on August 7, 1851 Charles Edward was born and named for Collins' Uncle Charles Cutler and Edward Todd. In March of 1853 both Collins and Edward again sold and moved to the new Harrison County area about 25 miles north of Council Bluffs. The boundaries of this county had been set in 1851 but nothing had been done until 1853 when the Fourth General Assembly of Iowa appointed three commissioners to "locate the seat of justice of the County, as near the geographical center of the above boundaries as might be found, having due regard for the present as well as future population of the County, and when so selected, located and established, to call the name thereof Magnolia." When Magnolia was laid out Collins had 120 acres about a mile from town located on the highest point in the County, covered with a good stand of timber on the rolling hills and with wild grain growing on the rest. This was ideal, as timber was needed for building and was the only source of fuel. Edward Todd was elected Justice and performed the first marriage in the new County. In the first months of settlement claim jumpers would come in from outside areas and try to grab property while filing was still in progress. Collins, along with the other honest citizens in the area formed an informal protective group known as "The Regulators" and claim jumpers soon left for healthier climates. When Collins preempted his farm he paid 40% interest on the money (the going rate at the time. The General Assembly later reduced the legal limit to 20%.) It was most difficult to take rough land, clear it and carry a 40% interest rate by farming; but for speculative development it was not unreasonable. Rough land could be preempted for $1.25 per acre and when cleared and fenced it would bring more than double that amount. The high interest rate did put pressure on the developer, however, as mortgages were relatively short term and paid in full at maturity rather than in installments. Collins had preempted this farm on a development basis and while he did not know it at the time this would be "home" to most of his descendants for the next hundred years. Racing the clock against the mortgage he injured himself building fence in the fall of' 1853 and was confined to bed until he died on May 5,1855 at the age of 46. On December 24,1853 Susan Caroline was born into the troubled household and was named for her mother and Collins' sister Susan. She died on September 18,1855 shortly after her father. The family was not destitute by any means, but was tied permanently to the farm, mortgage and all for better or worse. Caroline and the six children had spent a tragic year it, 1855, but this was not the end of hardship. In the long "hard winter" of 1856-1857 they lost most of their livestock in the deep snows and extraordinary cold that are still legend in Iowa. Through strange coincidence both Collins and his father had died in their forties just as they were beginning to build their estates, and almost immediately the weather set historical records in destroying the family's small nest egg.

Ruggles, Carl   b. March 11, 1876  d. October 24, 1971
Composer. His music has often been compared to that of his friend, Charles Ives, though unlike Ives' sprawling, exuberant works, Ruggles' compositions were short, highly concentrated and monolithic in their sound. They have such mystical titles as "Sun-Treader" (1931), "Angels" (1938), "Men and Mountains" (1941), and "Evocations" (1955).

Note: ANCESTRAL FILE: There are listed in the Ancestral File, ten children who are said to be the children of Levi IVES and Huldah GRISWOLD. All but two of these children have approximted birth dates and birth places. Several of the children have the same names as children born to Levi IVES and his first wife, Huldah YALE. It is my feeling that the submitters of the information in the Ancestral File have confused children of the first marriage with children of the second marriage. This is born out by the work of Bettina Kesteloot (E-mail <bettinakesteloot@earthlink.net>, Aug 2001), who lists ten children for Levi IVES and Huldah YALE with exact birth dates and birth places and only one child for Levi IVES and Huldah GRISWOLD. --Kay L. Baker 30 Aug 2001. 2
* Granville, NY is borderd to the East by VT (Rutland County). This border area between VT and New York was for a long time not clearly under control of either state. Arrivals from New England settled here hoping to gain the benefits of New England in areas such as land ownership and voting rights. Early settlers arrived before 1770, but the state line was not established until 1790, leaving settlers in this town within New York State.

The end of the war brought new settlers to VT. The first settler of the grants was Samuel Robinson, who began clearing land in Bennington in 1761.[6]

In the 28 years from 1763 to 1791, the non-Indian population of VT rose from 300 to 85,000.[7]

A fort at Crown Point had been built in 1759, and the Crown Point Military Road stretched across the Green Mountains from Springfield to Chimney Point, making traveling from the neighboring British colonies easier than ever before. Three colonies laid claim to the area. The Province of Massachusetts Bay claimed the land on the basis of the 1629 charter of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The Province of New York claimed VT based on land granted to the Duke of York (later King James II) in 1664. The Province of New Hampshire, whose western limits had never been determined, also claimed VT, in part based upon a decree of George II in 1740. 0n March 5, 1740, George II ruled that Massachusetts's northern boundary in this area would be from a point near the Merrimack River due west (its present location). The boundary was surveyed by Richard Hasen in 1741, and Fort Dummer (Brattleboro), was found to be north of the line. Provisions and support for Fort Dummer were ordered by the Colonial Office from New Hampshire in the following years.[8]

VT for Young VTers 1904 pdflink

The history of VT naturally divides itself into nine periods : 1. The Indian. —This period extends to the opening of the French and Indian wars in 1689. In this portion of the work a brief sketch is given of the red men who once inhabited or traversed the territory now included in the State of VT. During this period Lake Champlain and its shores are for the first time looked upon by white men. Half a century after its discovery, the French build and garrison a fort upon one of its islands, and thus be- come the first white men to occupy any portion of the present State.
2. The French and Indian Wars.—This period extends from 1689 to 1760, during which time the French and English are at war. The Wilderness, as VT is now called, is used as a thoroughfare by both parties and their Indian allies, and sometimes also as a battle-ground. Both nations grant townships in the Wilderness and make feeble attempts at settlement, building forts or block-houses for their protection.
3. Early Settlement. —The early settlement period ex- tends from the close of the French and Indian wars in 1760 to the breaking out of the Revolutionary War in 1775. During this time many townships are granted by the Governor of New Hampshire, under the name of tlie New Hampshire Grants, and settlements are made. This gives rise to a controversy over the ownership of the lands, which lasts many years, and finally results in making the grants an independent State. This portion of the work gives an account of this controversy, and relates some of the novel methods employed by the New Hampshire grantees in defense of their rights, giving also something of a history of the life of the pioneer and his family.

4. The Revolutionary War. —Although extending over a space of about eight years only, this period (1775-1783) is rich in events. During the entire time the grants are involved in a twofold struggle : they are at war with England and at war with their neighbors. They also declare themselves independent, organize a government of their own, and become practically a republic, at the same time appealing to Congress to recognize them as an independent State, and grant them admission into the Union.
5. Rajiid Settlement. —This period extends from the close of the Revolutionary War in 1783 to the breaking out of the War of 1812. Settlements spring up and grow rapidly, and a majority of the counties are formed. Ver- mont stoutly maintains her independence, and is finally admitted into the Union with the full consent of all concerned. Then follows a period of great growth and prosperity, and the settlers in the new State are happy and contented.
6. War of 1812. —This is a period of about two years, during which time the United States is at war with Great Britain, V
7. Transitions. —During this time slowly but surely great changes are being wrought—social, industrial, and commercial. These are brought about by various causes, prominent among which are the War of 1812, the develop- ment of resources, the emigration of the old stock, the in- coming of a foreign element, the telegraph, and the rail- roads. This period of nearly half a century extends from 1814 to 1861.
8. The Civil War.—This period extends from the breaking out of the Civil War in 1861 till its close in 1865. VTers make quick and generous response to the appeal to arms, and take an honorable part in a war whose sole object is the preservation of the Union.
9. VT since the Civil War. —This period extends from the close of the Civil War in 1865 to the present time (1904), giving something of an account of the growth and changes in these latter days and noting some of the important events of the period.

 

...The Wilderness during this Period.—It is not my purpose to relate events of this struggle other than those that took place within the region of the State, except as it may
be necessary to keep the connection. Being situated, as it were, at nearly an equal distance between the French and English settlements, the Wilderness was exposed to the depredations of both, and so did not invite settlement. During both the Colonial and the French and Indian wars, it was, however, a very important thoroughfare, and was repeatedly traversed by hostile
parties. It was oftentimes the scene of bloody battles be- tween the white settlers and hostile Indians, and at all times a favorite lurking-place for the latter.

was so often traveled by the French that it came to have the name of the French road, and the Winooski as the French river. The Indians oftener crossed from Lake Champlain to the CT River by way of the Otter Creek and Black (sometimes West) River, and this was known as the Indian road. Another route often taken by the Canadian Indians was by the way of the St. Francis River, Lake Memphremagog, Passumpsic and CT rivers. Schenectady Destroyed ; a French Custom—King William's War broke out in 1G89 and lasted eight years. Among the important expeditions of the French against the English was one against Schenectady, a town fourteen miles from Albany and on the Mohawk River. Frontenac, who was then the French governor of Canada, had been instructed to attempt the conquest of the English colonies in America. At his order, a force of 200 Frenchmen and fifty Indians set out from Montreal in the winter of 1690 ; and, proceeding through deep snows by the way of Lake Champlain and Lake George, they arrived at the little village of Schenectady about midnight. Learning through their spies that the place was in no condition for defense, they separated into small companies and in that manner entered the village so quietly that the inhabitants were not aware of danger until there was an enemy before nearly every house. A cruel massacre followed ; and in an incredibly short space of time the whole village was in flames. Sixty persons were killed, twenty-seven taken prisoners, and a few, escaping, fled half naked through the deep snows to Albany. It has been said that the French had two strong allies, the Algonquins and winter. True it is that it was their custom to make their attacks in winter ; and, like their Indian allies, with snow-shoe and toboggan, make nse of the ice-bound lakes and rivers. It was always witli feel- ings of relief that the English beheld the breaking up of the ice in the spring, for the danger of a winter's incursion was then considered to be over. The First English Expedition into VT. —In the same year that the expedition against Schenectady was made, the English determined to build a fort at what is now Chimney Point in Addison, and sent Jacob de Warm (sometimes written de Narm) for that purpose. The fort was built but not garrisoned, having been intended only as a stopping-place for troops to and from Canada. This was the first English expedition into VT.
Attack on Deerfield. —After an interval of about five years, in whicli there was peace between the rival nations. Queen Anne's War broke out (1702) and continued for eleven years. The first and principal move in this country was made by the French, in 1704, in an expedition against Deerfield, one of the frontier towns on the CT River. A force of 200 French and 142 Indians proceeded over the French road in midwinter wlien the snow was deep upon the ground. Their provision sleds, some of which were drawn by dogs, they left at West River guarded by a small number of their men. The remaining force hurried on to Deerfield, reaching there in the evening. Concealing themselves until the latter part of the night, when the guards had left the streets, they rushed into the village, finding easy access by means of the crusted drifts piled up to the very tops of the low palisades by which Deerfield was protected. A terrible slaughter of the unsuspecting people followed, and in a short time the town was well-nigh reduced to ashes. Forty-seven of the inhabitants had been slain ; and, soon after dawn, the victors were on their way to Canada, with over a hundred prisoners and considerable booty.

Thirty Years of Peace. —After the close of Queen Anne's War there was peace for over thirty years, but in the meantime VT history was making. Among the events of these years was the building of forts by both nations and the establisliment of the boundary-line be- tween Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
Equivalent Lands. —On determining the boundaries between Massachusetts and CT, in 1713, acres of land, previously granted by Massachusetts, were found to come rightfully within the limits of CT. Massachusetts, wishing to retain all lands granted by her, entered into an agreement with her sister colony to give the latter a certain number of her acres as an equivalent for those taken. Tiie Equivalent Lands were located in four different places, one being above Northfield on the west bank of the CT River Avithin the limits of thepresent towns of Brattleboro, Dummerston, and Putney. The CT Colony then caused these lands to be sold at public auction. The purchasers, now being tenants
in common, made partition of their lands, and the tract above Northfield fell to William Dummer (afterward lieutenant-governor of Massachusetts), William Brattle, and three others, and was held by them for many years. Fort Dummer.—Between the years 1720 and 1725, a fierce warfare was carried on between the Abenaki Indians and the English settlers. Although the. French and English were then under treaty of peace, both the governors of Canada and the French missionaries constantly incited the Indians to deeds of hostility against the English. Northfield and Deerfield were then the frontier towns on the CT, and were comparatively well protected against the enemy. But to keep the enemy at a distance and thus render the safety of these towns more sure, it was voted by the Massachusetts government to build a fort somewhere above Northfield on the west side of the CT River, on lands called the Equivalent Lands. As some of the western Indians were to form a part of the garrison, it was voted to appropriate not only sufficient land for the fort, but also an additional five or six acres of interval land to be plowed up for the use of those Indians who should wish to bring their families with them.With the consent of Lieutenant-Governor Dummer, a site was chosen within the present bounds of Brattleboro ; and, in the spring of 1724, a fort was built and called Fort Dummer. It enclosed a third of an acre of ground and was about 180 feet square, made of hewn logs of yellow pine laid up log-house fashion and interlocking at the corners after the manner of a blockhouse. Upon the walls of the fort were boxes for sentries and platforms for the cannon. The houses were built within, having the wall of the fort answer for their outer sides. Its first garrison consisted of fifty-five men, of whom about a dozen were western Indians coming from the vicinity of the Hudson River. The fort was also fur-iiished with a chaplain, who acted as pastor to the soldiers and missionary to the Indians. Through the advice of Captain Joseph Kellogg, who had been for many years a prisoner in Canada, and who had there learned of the lucrative peltry trade carried on between the French and the western Indians, Fort Dummer was soon made an important trading-post. Here the western Indians, finding that they could make better bargains at this station than at the French trading-posts. came in large numbers, exchanging moose and deer skins and tallow for clothing, food, and the like. A few months after the completion of this fort, it was attacked by seventy hostile Indians ; and four or five of its occupants were killed or wounded. Within and around this fort grew up a settlement which was called Brattleboro. This has been called the first permanent settlement in VT, though it is possible that the town of Vernon, which was then a part of Northfield, Mass., was settled previous to this time. In Brattleboro was born John Sargent, probably the first white child born in the State. French Grants. —It was during this long interval of peace, and closely following 1725, that the French king made grants pf extensive areas of land, called seignories, on both sides of Lake Champlain, and extending south to Crown Point and Ticonderoga. These seignories were much larger than the townships granted by the English, and were measured by leagues instead of miles. A settle- ment was made at Alburg, of perhaps a dozen settlers, wliere there was erected a windmill of stone masonry and perhaps a church.
A French Settlement
. —Notable among the French settlements on VT soil was that at Chimney Point, begun in 1730, forty years after the building of the fort there by the English, Here was built and garrisoned a stone Avindmill, and a blockhouse was also erected to serve as a citadel in times of danger. Northward from the fort and extending along the lake shore a few miles, the settlers built their log huts and planted their favorite marigold and lily, which bloomed in picturesque confusion around every doorway. Here might be seen well-cultivated gardens, flourishing orchards of plum and apple, and vast acres of wheat and corn. Here the farmer hunted the deer and moose, trapped the fur-bearing ani- mals, and fished in the lake, to provide meat and raiment for his family ; and here mothers reared their large families and sang quaint French lullabies to their babes. Gaily dressed children played about the doorways, and forest and meadow rang with the gay laughter of youth. Here the people worshiped in their one little church one day in seven, nor dreamed that their little colony would have an existence of but thirty years when English victories would force them back to Canada. About the time of the building of tliis fort. Fort St. Frederic was built on the opposite side of the lake. This was a position of great importance and was afterward called Crown Point. A French and Indian Village. — At an early day, French pioneers were associated with the Indians at Swanton, where at one time there was a village of about fifty huts. The stone church erected there by the French missionaries was undoubtedly the first edifice built exclusively for religious purposes in the Wilderness. This church was still standing in 1 759. The French also erected here a sawmill with a stockade fort to protect it, but this the English destro3^ed during the French and Indian War. In hisliistory of New Hampshire, Dr. Belknap tells us that the Indians in the vicinity of Missisquoi were in the habit of tapping the maples in the spring and making
sugar ; and from Graham's early history of VT we learn the process : " Large troughs were made out of the Pine Tree, sufficient to contain a tho nd gallons or up- wards ; the young Indians collected the sap into these troughs, the women in the meantime (for the men considered everything but war and hunting as beneath their dignity) made large fires for heating the stones necessary for the process ; when these were fit for their purpose, they plunged them into the sap in the troughs, and con- tinued the operation till they had boiled the sugar down to the consistence they wished." From this village frequent raiding parties went out into the country around, returning with scalps and prisoners Number One. —About the year 1736, Massachusetts ex- tended her grants northward on the CT River. One township only was granted west of the river and that was to extend from the Equivalent Lands northward to Great Falls (Bellows Falls). This at first went by the name of Number One, but was afterward called New Taunton, because most of its proprietors were from Taunton, Mass. A sawmill was there erected and a few families of set- tlers came. A few years afterward, when it had been de- cided that this township was within the territory of New Hampshire, the Governor of that province regi'anted it, changing its name to Westminister.
Settlement of Boundary-Line between Massachusetts and New Hampshire.—A few years after the building of Fort Dummer, a dispute arose between Massachusetts and New Hampshire concerning the boundary between them. The former claimed that her territory extended north several miles farther than the present limits of that State, her claim extending to a line running through the base of Ascutney Mountain. New Hampshire contended that Massachusetts was placing the line too far north and was taking in territory that rightfully belonged to her, she placing the boundary between the two colonies at a line which runs through the Black Mountains. These overlapping claims caused much contention for perhaps the space of ten years ; when, in 1740, the King of England ended it by giving New Hampshire even more than she had demanded. This took from Massachusetts twenty-eight new townships, between the Merrimac and CT rivers, besides a large amount of vacant lands....

 

Scouting.—During the wars, many exploring parties were sent out from the forts on the CT to discover the position ^ blockhouse and force of the enemy and give warning of any threatened danger. It was the duty of the rangers to "scour the woods," and it was by no means an easy life. Often loaded down with a month's provisions, gun, hatchet and blanket, they pursued their course for the most part through thickly wooded country, sometimes following the waterways, sometimes climbing to the tops of the lofty mountains, ''there also to lodge on ye top and view morning and evening for smoaks " from the enemy's camp-fires. In summer, the ground was their only bed ; the sky above, or the sheltering branches of a tree, their only canopy. When the rivers and lakes were frozen over, and the snow was deepest, the enemy was most to be feared ; and, at such time, careful watch was necessary. Then they tramped all day on cumbersome snow-shoes, with all their senses alert, and with strained ears noting every sound. Wherever night found them, they ate their scant rations ; and, often with no fire to warm their benumbed bodies, in Indian fashion, they wrapped themselves in their blaiikets and lay down on their beds of spruce or hemlock, and passed the dreary night as best they could, while one of their number kept a lonely vigil near by.

... Granting of Townships; Settlements Begun.—In the few years of peace that followed King George's War,
Governor Wentvvorth made grants of fifteen townships within the present limits of VT. The first of these was granted in 1749. It was six miles square, and was situated six miles north of the Massachusetts line and twenty miles east of the Hudson River. It was surveyed the same year, but no settlement was made there for more than ten years. This was called Bennington in honor of Benning Wentworth. The fourteen other grants were east of the mountains, and comprised the greater part of the present Windham County. Settlements were begun, but were of slow growth because of the hostility of the Indians and the breaking out so soon of the French and Indian War, which drove many of the settlers to abandon their homes and seek places of greater safety farther from the frontier. Some of these charters were forfeited because of the inability of the proprietors to clear the required number of acres of land and to fulfil otlier conditions of the charters; but they were renewed several years after. Among the settlements started was that of Bellows Falls, where, we are told, the first iuhabitants subsisted almost entirely on the salmon and shad that came up the river to that place in great numbers. A second attempt was made to settle Putney, and here a fort was built re- sembling that of Dummer, only on a smaller scale ; and this was garrisoned by New Hampshire troops until peace was restored between the French and English in 1760....

The French and Indian War (1754-1760).—The French and Indian War, so called, was the fourth and last war and continued for about six years. It consisted of a series of English victories....

 

Taking of Crown Point and Ticonderoga.—Among the important English victories were the taking of Crown Point and Ticondei-oga, toward the close of this war. These were positions of great importance, commanding, as they did, the j^assage from Lake Champlain to Lake George. After abandoning these forts, the French went down the lake to Isle aux Noix, which is situated at the north end of the lake and commands the passage into Canada, leaving the " Gate of the Conntry " (as the Iroqnois had fitly named Lake Champlain) in undis^^uted possession of the English peojile. Here they resolved to make a bold stund against the English....

VT at the Close of the Long Contest.—In 1760
the long contest ended, and France gave up all claims in America. On the abandonment of Crown Point and Ticonderoga by the French, the French at Chimney Point and those at Swanton withdrew to Canada, but the Indians in large numbers made the Missisquoi Valley their home for many years ; and, indeed, they did so until the English came there to settle after the close of the Eevolutionary War. Many of the seignories granted by the French king had reverted to the crown because of non-settlement ; but some of them were, at the close of the war, still held by
their proprietors. When the lands of the Champlain
Valley were surrendered to the English, the proprietors asked that their charters be regranted to them ; but in most cases this was refused. At the close of the war the few settlers in the southeastern part of the State, with the Indians of Swanton,
comprised the entire population, probably not amounting
in all to over three hundred persons. Because of the fewness and unimportance of the settlements at this time,
it is customary to consider the close of the French and
Indian wars as the be- ginning of settlement
111 VT.

New Hampshire Grants.—The French and Indian War
for a time put a stop to the granting of townships ; but, on
the cessation of hostilities, so many persons made application for lands, that Governor Wentworth, in the name of the king, began making extensive grants west of the CT, a large part of the land east of that river having
been alread}^ granted. In 1760 he had a survey made sixty miles along the CT, and three lines of townships laid out on
either side of the river. As applications increased, the surveys were extended westward beyond the mountains;
and, by the end of 1763, 138 townships in all had been
granted west of the CT River. These townships
covered the better part of the present State, extending from the CT River on the east to Lake Champlain on the west. The territory now began to be known
as the New Hampshire Grants. The king's object in allowing the governors to make such grants was to promote the settlement of the country and gain a revenue for the government through a small annual rent which was to be exacted. The governors of the colonies willingly made these grants, finding abundant
remuneration in the fees which they obtained for the grant- ing of the charters. Original Proprietors.—It is interesting to note how our VT towns came into existence. The original proprietors, usually men residing within the vicinity of each
other in the older New England settlements, would asso- ciate themselves together to the number of about sixty
;
and, deciding on some situation in the Wilderness which
they deemed would be acceptable, they would make application to Governor Wentworth to grant them a township there. Nothing was to be paid by the proprietors on
receiving the grants except a compensation to the governor
for the granting of the charters (usually about 1100) ; and
this they shared equally, together with the cost of a survey and sometimes the expense of opening a road to the grants, etc. These men were mainly either speculators or friends and followers of Governor Wentworth. Few of them ever so much as visited their possessions, but sought purchasers iu all the neighboring colonies, where they readily sold to tlie large army of home-seekers the lands which they had obtained by gift.
The New Hampshire Charters
.—All the town charters issued by Benning Wentworth were of much the same form. By their provision the towns were laid out as nearly six miles square as the natural features would permit. Before any division of the land was made, a tract of land, as near the middle of the town as possible, was laid out in one-acre lots, one of which was to be alloted to each of the grantees. Making allowance for highways and unimprovable lands, such as rocks, ponds, rivers, monntains, etc., the land was then divided into sixty-odd equal shares. Wentworth, according to the custom of other governors of that time, reserved 500 acres (regarded as two shares) persuasion. One share was also set apart for the Church of England (the Episcopal Church), and another for the spreading of the gospel in foreign lands. Aside from one share which was reserved in each township for the benefit of schools, the remaining shares went to the grantees. In his history of the town of Hartford, Tucker tells us the manner in which the shares of that town were assigned. The names of proprietors were written on separate slips of paper, and the description of lots on other slips. The names of proprietors were then put in one receptacle, the description of lots in another; then some disinterested person drew one slijD of each kind, and the lot drawn with any proprietor's name was his property. The giant pines of that day were very valuable as masts for the king's navy. Some of these were from 150 to 200 feet in height, and a tree thirty-five inches in diameter was valued at $500. The charters required that all white and other pine trees fit for masting in the king's navy be reserved for that use, and none felled without his consent. Within the term of five years, every grantee was required to cultivate five acres of land for each fifty acres contained
in his share, and to continue to cultivate them thereafter on penalty of having his lands taken from him and re- granted to others. For the space of ten years, he was to pay a yearly rent of one ear of Indian corn on his town
lot; and after that time a yearly rent of one shilling for each 100 acres he owned. These rents were to be paid on
Christmas-day. The Early Settlers ; Who Were They ?—Soon after the French had retreated to Canada, and there was comparatively little danger of hostile incursions, the Wilderness was invaded by a throng of pioneers, who came to clear the land and upon it build their homes. These were, for the most part, young men witli little money, who had not the means to purchase lands in the older settlements where
the prices were mucli higher. Some (though these were
in the minority) possessed means, and were either original proprietors or those who had purchased from the proprietors vast acres of land, because they foresaw in speculation an opportunity to increase largely their fortunes, and were
willing to bear the privations necessary for that end. During the progress of the wars, farmer soldiers, in passing through, had noted the fertile lands and recognized
their possibilities. Rangers, many of whom were hunters and trappers, when on their perilous missions, had penetrated the forest wherever led an Indian trail or could be paddled the light canoe, and so had come to know what of value the forest held for them. Lumbermen had discov- ered its wealth of pine, oak, and other trees, and were cast- ing greedy eyes upon this longtime hunting-ground and
highway. Manufacturers and millwrights were not blind
to the power locked up in the swift-running streams, and knew that their hands had the cunning to undo the lock. As most of these soldiers were of New England origin,
it came to pass that the settlers of the Wilderness were mainly of the good old Puritan stock, from the older set- tlements of Massachusetts and CT, men of strong
constitutions and industrious habits. Rapid Growth of Settlements. —Old war-paths now be- came the ways of peace ; and the rapidity with which set- tlements sprang into existence was remarkable, considering
the difficulties which existed in the way of travel. No set- tlement was made in Bennington till 1761, though its char-ter was granted twelve years previous to that time ; but so rapid was its growth that in 1765 its inhabitants numbered 1,000 ; and it had mills, a church, schools, and a
militia company. Guilford, settled about the same time, soon became the largest town in the State as to numbers, and remained so for some years. Colonial Charters.—The kings of England, who made
large grants in this country, must have been densely igno- rant of the vast extent of the lands in America, as is shown
by the charters granted, which were often very vague in their phrasing. The charters of Massachusetts and CT gave to these colonies all lands extending west- ward to the Pacific Ocean, excepting any lands which might come in between that had previously been settled by other Christian nations. New York's charter, granted
in 1614, some years previous to either of these, gave to the Dutch all lands lying between the CT River and
the east shore of Delaware Bay. When, fifty years later. New York came into the possession of the English, King
Charles gave to his brother, the Duke of York, all lands included in the early charter. But in the meantime settlements had been made in both Massachusetts and CT beyond the CT River on land claimed alike by New York and these
colonies. The matter had been amicably settled, however ; and now for a long time it had been generally understood, both in England and America, that the eastern boundary
of New York was a line twenty miles east of Hudson River and running parallel to it. This was plainly shown by
the records and maps of that time.

David Ives of Goshen was an officer - a First Lieutenant of the Green Mountain Boys. He was born 15 Jun 1740 Wallingford, CT s/o Father: Benjamin Ives Sgt. Mother: Hannah Moss Spouse: Eunice GILLET
He is probably the David Ives "of Goshen" who lays out Fairfield VT ~ 1766 for many residents of Fairfield and New Fairfield CT. This includes Northrops, Bradleys and Wakemans.

The Green Mountain Boys were a militia organization first established in the 1760s in the territory between the British provinces of New York and New Hampshire, known as the New Hampshire Grants (which later became the state of VT). Headed by Ethan Allen and members of his extended family, they were instrumental in resisting New York's attempts to control the territory, over which it had won de jure control in a territorial dispute with New Hampshire.

When these disputes led to the formation of the VT Republic in 1777, the Green Mountain Boys became the state militia. Some companies served in the American Revolutionary War, including notably when the Green Mountain Boys led by Ethan Allen captured fort Ticonderoga on Lake Champlain on May 10, 1775; the invasion of Canada in 1775; and the battles at Hubbardton and Bennington in 1777.

Following VT's admission to the Union in 1791, the original organization essentially disbanded. The Green Mountain Boys mustered again during the War of 1812, the Civil War, and the Spanish-American War. Today it is the informal name of the VT National Guard which comprises both the Army and Air National Guards.

~~~

Historical unit

The original Green Mountain Boys were a militia organized in what is now southwestern VT in the decade prior to theAmerican Revolutionary War. They comprised settlers and land speculators who held New Hampshire titles to lands between the CT River and Lake Champlain, an area then known as the New Hampshire Grants, that is now modern VT. New York was given legal control of the area by a decision of the British crown and refused to respect the New Hampshire titles and town charters. Although a few towns with New York land titles, notably Brattleboro on the CT River, supported the change, the vast majority of the settlers in the sparsely populated frontier region rejected the authority of New York.

With several hundred members, the Green Mountain Boys effectively controlled the area where New Hampshire grants had been issued. They were led by Ethan Allen, his brother Ira Allen, and their cousins Seth Warner and Remember Baker. They were based at the Catamount Tavern in Bennington. By the 1770s, the Green Mountain Boys had become an armed military force and de facto government that prevented New York from exercising its authority in the northeast portion of theProvince of New York. New York authorities had standing warrants for the arrest of the leaders of the rebellious VTers, but were unable to exercise them. New York surveyors and other officials attempting to exercise their authority were prevented from doing so and in some cases were severely beaten, and settlers arriving to clear and work land under New York–issued grants were forced off their land, and sometimes had their possessions destroyed. At the same time, New York sought to extend its authority over the territory. During an event once known as the Westminster massacre, anti-Yorkers occupied the courthouse in Westminster to prevent a New York judge from holding court, and two men were killed in the ensuing standoff. Ethan Allen then went to Westminster with a band of Boys, and organized a convention calling for the territory's independence from New York.

When the American Revolutionary War started in 1775, Ethan Allen and a troop of his men, along with CT Colonel Benedict Arnold, marched up to Lake Champlain and captured the strategically important military posts at Fort TiconderogaCrown Point, and Fort George, all in New York. The Boys also briefly held St. John's in Québec, but retreated on word of arriving British regulars. The Green Mountain Boys later formed the basis of the VT militia that selected Seth Warner as its leader. Some of the Green Mountain Boys preferred to stick with Ethan Allen and were captured along with Allen in August 1775 in a bungled attempt to capture the city of Montreal. Some members of this unit wereCongressman Matthew Lyon and Lieutenant Benjamin Tucker. Benjamin Tucker joined the British Military during his capture, because of this his name was rebuked by Ethan Allen and his men.

VT eventually declared itself an independent nation in January 1777, and organized a government based in Windsor. The army of the VT Republic was based upon the Green Mountain Boys. Although VT initially supported the American Revolutionary War and sent troops to fight John Burgoyne's British invasion from Quebec in battles at Hubbardton and Bennington in 1777, VT eventually adopted a more neutral stance and became a haven for deserters from both the British and colonial armies. George Washington, who had more than sufficient difficulties with the British, brushed off Congressional demands that he subdue VT. During the Haldimand Affair some members of the Green Mountain Boys became involved in secret negotiations with British officials about restoring the Crown's rule over the territory.

The VT Army version of the Green Mountain Boys faded away after VT joined the United States as the 14th U.S. state in 1791, although the Green Mountain Boys mustered for the War of 1812The Civil War, the Spanish-American War, and following World War I as the VT National Guard.

The Flag of the Green Mountain Boys: the green represents the Green Mountains of VT where the militia hails, and the 13 stars in the field of blue represents the 13 American colonies.

The New Hampshire Grants or Benning Wentworth Grants were land grants made between 1749 and 1764 by the provincial governor of New HampshireBenning Wentworth. The land grants, totaling about 135 (including 131 towns), were made on land claimed by New Hampshire west of the CT River, territory that was also claimed by the Province of New York. The resulting dispute led to the eventual establishment of the VT Republic, which later became the U.S. state of VT.

Also in 1741, New Hampshire native Benning Wentworth was appointed the first governor of New Hampshire of the 18th century who was not also a governor of Massachusetts. Wentworth chose to read New Hampshire's territorial claims broadly. He construed the decree setting the New Hampshire-Massachusetts border to mean that New Hampshire's jurisdiction extended as far west as the jurisdiction of Massachusetts extended. Since the Massachusetts boundary extended to a point 20 miles (32 km) east of the Hudson River, Wentworth assumed the area west of the CT belonged to New Hampshire. New York based its claim on the letters Patent granted the Prince EdwardDuke of York andAlbany all of the lands west of the CT River to Delaware Bay.

Grants

New Hampshire

Wentworth made the first grant, Bennington, a township west of the CT River, on January 3, 1749. Cautioned by New York to cease and desist, Wentworth promised to await the judgment of the king, and refrain from making more grants in the claimed territory until it was rendered, but in November 1753, New York reported that he continued to grant land in the disputed area. Grants briefly ceased in 1754, because of the French and Indian War, but in 1755 and 1757, Wentworth had a survey made 60 miles (97 km) up the CT River, and 108 grants were made, extending to the line 20 miles (32 km) east of the Hudson, and north to the eastern shore of Lake Champlain.

The grants were usually six miles (9.6 km) square (the standard size of a U.S. survey township, although the Public Land Survey System is not used in VT) and cost the grantee(s) £20. The grants were then subdivided amongst the proprietors, and six of the lots were set aside—one for the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts(a missionary organization of the Church of England), one for the Church of England, one for the first clergyman to settle in the township, one for a school, and two for Wentworth himself. The permanent annual tax on each grant, called a quitrent, was one shilling, paid directly to the king or his representative.

New York

While Wentworth's land sales were underway, New York also issued land patents in the same area. However, in contrast to the New Hampshire grants, the New York patents were generally irregularly shaped and issued to wealthy landowners. The New Hampshire grants were "town-sized," and generally settled by middle-class farmers. Most of the New York boundaries were ignored in favor of the New Hampshire boundaries and designations once VT achieved statehood, and some of these New York patents are now referred to aspaper towns because they existed only on paper.

Royal adjudication

In September 1762, New York caught New Hampshire surveyors working on the east side of Champlain, provoking the former colony's government to reiterate its claim to the area, citing both its own patent and the New Hampshire letters patent of 1741. In March 1764, Wentworth released a statement to the effect that the resolution of jurisdictional dispute required a royal verdict, which he was certain would be made in his favor. Meanwhile, he encouraged his grantees to settle in the land and to cultivate and develop it.

New York appealed to the Board of Trade, requesting a confirmation of their original grant, which finally resolved the border dispute between New York and New Hampshire in favor of New York. The royal order of July 26, 1764 affirmed that "the Western bank of the CT, from where it enters the province of Massachusetts Bay as far north as the 45th degree of northern latitude, to be the boundary line between the said two provinces of New Hampshire and New York." Wentworth issued his final two grants on October 17 of that year: Walker and Waltham.

[edit]Invalidation

New York interpreted the decision as invalidating Wentworth's grants entirely—to the great dismay of area residents—and subsequently divided the territory into four counties,AlbanyCharlotteCumberland and Gloucester. New York required that grantees surrender their charters, and in many cases buy their lands back from New York at greatly increased prices. Those who would not pay lost legal title to their lands, which New York then reassigned to others. The people, who would later become VTers, petitioned the governor of New York to confirm the New Hampshire Grants; he complied, in part, by declaring that no other grants should be made until the King's wishes were known. Land not previously granted by New Hampshire was considered open for distribution by New York's government.

=
The New Hampshire Grants region petitioned Congress for entry into the American union as a state independent of New York in 1776.

In 1770, the New York Supreme Court (which included members holding competing titles to some of the Wentworth grants) advanced New York's case by declaring all of Wentworth's grants invalid. This infuriated residents of the area, includingEthan Allen and his Green Mountain Boys, ultimately leading to the establishment of the self-declared VT Republicand general rebellion against the New York government.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Hampshire_Grants

By the mid 1700s, New England was crowded.  Farmers in CT and Massachusetts had used up the good soil.  They wanted more land for themselves and their children.  They started to move to the land that is now part of VT.

Benning Wentworth was the Governor of New Hampshire from 1741 to 1766.  He wanted the land west of the CT River to be part of his colony.  He granted this land to groups of settlers to start towns.  These towns were called the New Hampshire Grants.

In 1749, Wentworth chartered the first town which he named Bennington, after himself.  Some of the settlers bought land to start new farms.  After cutting down trees, they could plant crops like corn on their farms.  Other people, like Ethan Allen, wanted to sell their land to make money.

Governor Wentworth started 129 towns.  But there was a problem.  New York also thought that it owned the land north of Massachusetts and east to the CT River.  Both colonies wanted to start towns on the same land.

http://VThistory.org/explorer/VT-stories/becoming-a-state/the-new-hampshire-grants

How did the Green Mountain Boys help VT become VT?

Ethan Allen owned land in the New Hampshire Grants.  He did not want to lose his land to the Yorkers.  He also did not want to pay more money for his land.  Other settlers felt the same way.  After talking at the CatamountTavern in Bennington, these men joined together to start the Green Mountain Boys.

The Green Mountain Boys wanted to scare the Yorkers and chase them away.  When Dr. Samuel Adams tried to defend the Yorkers, he made the Green Mountain Boys angry.  Even though Adams owned land in the New Hampshire Grants, the Green Mountain Boys put him on trial at the Catamount Tavern.  They decided he was guilty.  To punish him, they tied a chair to the tavern's sign and made him sit in the chair for hours.  The tavern was a popular place in Bennington.  The supporters of the Grants probably yelled at Dr. Adams and kept him from helping the Yorkers.

Not all of the settlers supported the Green Mountain Boys.  Some people did not like that the Green Mountain Boys broke the law or scared Yorkers.  Many settlers paid money to New York to keep their land.

The Green Mountain Boys also protected VT during the Revolutionary War.  They helped Ethan Allen and Benedict Arnold capture Fort Ticonderoga from the British.  At the Battle of Bennington, the Green Mountain Boys fought with the American troops to beat the British.

East Haven lies in the western part of the county, in lat. 44º 30' and long. 5º 5', bounded northeast by Ferdinand, southeast by Granby, southwest by Victory and Burke, and northwest by Newark. It was chartered by Governor Chittenden, October 22, 1790, though none of the grantees ever settled in the town. “A request having been made to Joseph Heath, of Groton, one of the justices of the peace within and for the county of Caledonia, by the owners of more than one-sixteenth part of the lots of land in the township of East Haven, a proprietors' meeting, was called by him, August 31, 1810 to be holden in Newark, at the dwelling house of James Ball, November 15, 1810. At the meeting held on that day and the following days, Norris Walter was appointed moderator, and James Whitelaw, proprietors' clerk. Appointed Andrew Lockie a committee to lay out the town into lots of 106 acres each, to be divided into first, second and third division lots, an equal number to each." 

East Haven (p. o.) is a hamlet located in the western part of the town, on Road 5. The first settler in the town was John Walter, Jr., who moved here May 1, 1804, and located where Oscar F. Walter now lives. He was born in Winchester, Conn. and came to Vermont in 1799. He married Uneca Blakesly, who bore him fourteen children, ten of whom attained an adult age. His wife died March 5, 1848. He not only built the first house in the township, but also planted the first orchard. 

       Norris Walter, brother of John Jr., came next, in March, 1805, and located where William M. Smith now lives, on road 8. His children were Harriet, Elam, MerrittM., Clarissa S., Harlow B., Samuel, Emeline and Ann, most of whom became settled in town. The settlers who followed next were the families of Blake, Casey and Colfax, though they did not remain long. 

       The first birth in town was that of Clarissa S. Walter, and the first marriage was that of Harriet Walter and Peter Atwood. The first death was that of Jemima Colfax. The first school-house was built in 1832, and the first teacher was Betsey Blake. The first tavern was built by K. Hudson, in 1848. The town was organized July 28, 1845, when H.W. Belden was chosen town clerk; Russell Horsford, Jeremiah Lund and Abner Clagsdon, selectmen; and H.M. Lund, constable. The first representative was John Walter, for the years 1845-46. The postoffice was established in 1850, and Elijah Avery was the first postmaster. The burial ground was laid out in 1846, and the first person buried therein was Uneca, wife of John Walter, Jr.  The first saw-mill was built by Joseph Woods.

4. Andrew Bradley, son of Gershom* (Francis,* Francis*) and Jane (Dimon) Bradley, was born in Fairfield, Conn., 31 Jan. 1754; lived in Redding, Conn., in 1783, and New Fairfield in 1787. He married, first, Ruth Wakeman, daughter of William and Sarah (Hill) Wakeman, who was the mother of his seven children. He married secondly, Mrs. Jane (Dimon) Fanton. He married thirdly, Mrs. Orissa (Wilmarth) Barlow. He was survived by three daughters: Jane, wife of Abraham Northrop; Sarah, wife of Salmon Soule; and Eunice, wife of Ira Wheeler. His father was probably the Gershom Bradley who was one of the original proprietors of the town of Fairfield.

Also Nathaniel Beardsley & Whitmore Beardsley are they related to the 2 Beardsley wives of David Northrop  (Thomas Northrop5, Thomas Northrup4, William Northrup3, Joseph Northrup2, Joseph Northrup1)??

Sherwood Whitney. He was the son of Silas' (Samuel, Richard, John) and Esther (Sherwood) Whitney. He married Abigail Lobdell, daughter of Ebenezer [No. in above] and Eunice (Bradley) Lobdell. Grandson of Silas and Amy Northrop1722 Whitney.

Smithfield was originally a separate town, located between Fairfield and Sheldon. In 1792 it was annexed to Fairfield except for a narrow strip of land at the east end, which became a part of Bakersfield. Since every one of the families listed in this census lived in that portion of the town which became part of Fairfield the record is given here. It has been copied from the same source of that of Fairfield on the preceding pages, and annotated by the editor of this pamphlet.


Bradley- Wakeman Fairfield VT unknown relationship to Amos Northrop Rachel Ives, but Great Aunt and Uncle to Sarah Wakeman Alvord. Not in the picture until ~ 1815-1820 when Sarah and Alvin would have courted. May have had some aquaintace through David Ives with this Fairfield nexus, but probably not a close one.

Only remaining question is that of Thomas1732 Northrop being in Fairfield, CT in 1758 for the birth of David Northrop. How often did they return to Fairfield from New Fairfield??? as opposed to Newtown??



Joab Smith, of Fairfield, the so-called " father of the town,"

Among the earliest pioneers in the production

"CENSUS NEIGHBORS"

I've looked at the census records for myAmos to identify census neighbors who might be connected. AJNorthrup genealogy identifies Kent Warren and Washington as locations for MyAmos. Again, some changes in census location may actually be a change in boundary. The names of locations have changed as well.

1790 prob too young OR Newtown w/parents who is Washington Amos?
1800 Kent
1810 MIA OR New Milford OR w/ family OR VT?? ???
1820 Kent
1830 Kent
1840 Warren
1850 Washington
1855 dies Washington, buried, Warren
 
The Town of Washington encompasses the following Villages:
Washington Depot
Washington (or Washington Green) --  the Old Judea
New Preston --  located on the Aspetuck River.
Marbledale (or Marble Dale) and
Woodville by Mount Tom
1790 Census - MyAmos (if 1778 ~ 12, if 1774 ~ 16, if 1784 ~ 6)
 
I include this only for comparison with a later references

Amos 1790 Washington, CT
MyAmos is probably too young to be this Amos.
Who is this Amos??? Could be Amos Wellman Northrop (Jonathan line) Although AJN has him Residence: BEF 1801 Fishkill, Dutchess Co., NY 16 kids b. Fishkill 1781-1798. He does not marry until about 1781. Not likely he is Amos' father. Since he was a teacher did he move back and forth with the school season?
Is Amos Wellman Northrop the one listed in the Quaker Hill, NY store ledgers? 1790 Census 12200
1 male 16 or over
2 males under 16
2 females any age (Elijah 1790 Washington, CT there are a couple of Elijah's that can be confused. Likely he is the son of Samuel1718 & Lydia Thomas1723. b~ 1761 in Washington CT. m. Lucina Easton (Luxina)1764 (d/o Eliphalet Easton and Mary Gould is this Gould connected to Redding Goulds?) Eliphalet dies in Woodbury in 1785 Washington. Elijah D. 1829 in Humphreysville (Seymour), CT Served (American Revolutionary War) Pension Awarded a pension (#s36199). Did Elijah have any connection to mills and manufacturing in Humphreysville? Died in poorhouse. Can't find any direct connection to myAmos. Other Elijahs 1790-1820 in Lee, MA, Lenox, MA in Oneida - no township listed -- NY in 1810. Elijah in Lenox, MA. None in CT 1 male 16 and over(born 1774 or earlier -- prob at least 22 ~ born 1768 or earlier), 2 males under 16, 2 females Both Elijah and Amos are MIA in 1810. There are many usual suspects in Fairfield VT 1800 census http://dunhamwilcox.net/vt/fairfield_vt_census.htmthere are 3 unreadable northrops in Danby VT in 1810. Check Ira VT for ages.1

don't know where this belongs
For the longest time I thought Amos was "lost" in this census -- perhaps living with another family member, I now think it's possible that the 1810 New Milford Amos is MyAmos. Did Amos move around that much? Maybe. It's also quite possible the borders moved around. See Border-MountTom issues. We see references to Mount Tom associated with the Nathan Terrill of Milford, Job Terrill, Jonathan Meeker of Fairfield and Amos Northrop of Milford Other names in the area - East Greenwich, Merryall. Portions of the area may well have been part of the "Fairweather purchase".

The "family sticks together" speculationIn the absence of more definitive information, I've reviewed possible neighbors in the census (where available). In census lists that are not alphabetical, I speculate name sequence reflects physical order of homes. Below are the names I watched for in the review.

The table lists the results as likely extended family connections. I speculate the earlier data is more likely to be significant. The years are links to images of the census pages.

1New Preston, CT. From the top of the "hill" that's just southeast of Lake Waramaug called The Pinnacle.above from http://www.flickr.com/photos/richardspics/718893025/in/pool-24554386@N00

THE tract now comprising the towns of Kent and Warren was sold at auction at the court house in Windham, in March, 1738. The settlernent commenced the same year.The principal settlers were from Colchester, Fairfield and Norwalk The first minister was the Rev. Cyrus Marsh, ordained in May, 1741.Kent the Moravian church or mission house was standing 30 or 40 years since, near the house of Mr. Raymond, by the Episcopal church. The Moravians left this place about half a century since. The Scatacook tribe, for whose benefit this mission was established, occupied the interval on the west side of the river for about three miles.It may be that this earlier mission set the stage for the Mission School in nearby Cornwall.

search yielded raymonds and olmsteads with many northrop connections

      Sources:
      1. Text: The evidence that Asahel Dutton and Sarah Frisbie were the parents of Asahel E. Dutton is circumstantial, but highly pursuasive:
        1.Asahel and Sarah's birth dates and marriage date are appropriate for them being the parents of the younger Asahel.
        2. The fact that both men had the same name is an obvious clue.
        3. The younger Asahel named one of his sons James Frisbie Dutton. James Frisbie was the name of one of Sarah's brothers.
        4. James Frisbie shared a claim to land in Bradford county, Pennsylvania with Solomon Moss, who was the father-in-law of the younger Asahel Dutton.
        5. The families of both the suspected parents and Asahel E. Dutton all moved to Poultney, VT. Sarah Frisbie and 4 of her brothers moved to the Poultney area when the younger Asahel was a young child. Further, the sister of the elder Asahel, Lois Dutton, moved to Poultney. The first docuement event involving the younger Asahel was his moving from Poultney in 1800. Text: Edward Frisbie of Branford and His Descendants, by Nora G. Frisbie.

    With the inaccuracies of early maps, it's difficult to tell the exact borders of the older, larger, Litchfield. It may have encompassed as much as with area of green above -- parts of Plymouth, Washington, Kent and Warren. Some of what appears to be a move by Gerrit, may have actually been a change in the town borders.

        Sources:
        1. Text: The evidence that Asahel Dutton and Sarah Frisbie were the parents of Asahel E. Dutton is circumstantial, but highly pursuasive:
          1.Asahel and Sarah's birth dates and marriage date are appropriate for them being the parents of the younger Asahel.
          2. The fact that both men had the same name is an obvious clue.
          3. The younger Asahel named one of his sons James Frisbie Dutton. James Frisbie was the name of one of Sarah's brothers.
          4. James Frisbie shared a claim to land in Bradford county, Pennsylvania with Solomon Moss, who was the father-in-law of the younger Asahel Dutton.
          5. The families of both the suspected parents and Asahel E. Dutton all moved to Poultney, VT. Sarah Frisbie and 4 of her brothers moved to the Poultney area when the younger Asahel was a young child. Further, the sister of the elder Asahel, Lois Dutton, moved to Poultney. The first docuement event involving the younger Asahel was his moving from Poultney in 1800. Text: Edward Frisbie of Branford and His Descendants, by Nora G. Frisbie.

    Perhaps something more than Ethan Allen’s personal charism made the Brownsons especially responsive to his influence. Allen had joined the Brownson family back in CT; he had married Mary, the daughter of Cornelius Brownson, on June 23, 1762, in Judea parish, Woodbury. The wedding ceremony cost him four shillings. (9)

    Between the years 1806 and 1816 several boys had drifted away from the Sandwich Islands as seamen and became temporarily residents of New England ; some of them had begun to acquire an education by private assistance and a few, in 1816, were gathered into a flourishing school at Morris, Conn. Henry Obookiah, one of the most influential, had joined the church in Torringford the previous year, and was preparing to be a missionary to his native land under the direction of the Litchfield North Consociation.

    Another possibility is an undocumented son of George Northrop. There is a record of George having an earlier marriage to a "Miss Kimberly" before his marriage to Mary Kimberly perhaps a sister or cousin to Mary. She would have died before 1782. Amos' reported DOB is 1778, so this could be possible. "Miss Kimberly" would likely have a date of birth of about 1760 or earlier. (at least age 18 when he was born). There are several points that would support this option. The name George -- Amos named his son George -- and the fact that he is a shoemaker. Amos' son Alvin worked with leather making shoes harnesses etc. as well as farming. We don't know what Amos did, but he probably farmed and may have been a shoemaker as well.

    Some interesting cases involving Northrops -- mention of a John Northrop and Gad Northrop

    Redding Ridge's tavern owner, Stephen Betts, certainly fits the profile: Lieutenant Stephen Betts, was a prominent character in the Revolution. He was an active patriot, and was taken prisoner by the British on their march to Danbury in April, 1777. A County Convention was held at his house/tavern on August 10, 1779. Betts was prominent in town politics, serving as Town Selectman during the Revolution, as well as several town committees formed in support of the war.

    General Samuel H. Parsons was headquartered at Betts' home/tavern from 1778 to 1781.

    ELMER? ELMORE CONNECTION TO George Dutton Northrop

    When I told Philip Osofsky that I only knew of two Jewish-owned working farms in Ellsworth: his father’s and the Northrop Farm on Northrup Road that George D. Northrop sold to Morris Schulman in April 1909, Philip said there was one more. That was a very small farm at the foot of Northrup Road, still in Ellsworth, and owned by the Cohen family. 1 He also reported the existence of a few small Jewish-owned family farms that fattened beef cattle and calves. A local Jewish-owned slaughter house provided kosher beef prepared according to ritual law. The soil of the Northwest corner may be thin and rocky Sharon Historical Societymaybe George Dutton?

    Newtown's History and Historian, Ezra Levan Johnson

    History of Bethlehem society "east part of the north purchase ?Woodbury?-- not divided among proprietors until 1734 remained woodland Among the first proprietors -- from the first society (woodbury) came Reuben and Josiah Avered1739 allowed to set up minister and school Rev Joseph Bellamy at age 22Fall of 1740 Mr. Whitefield preached through country religion was revived 1750 the "nervous fever prevailed and spread== not enough wel l to take care of the sick and - a mortal distemper carried off 30 persons in the prime of their life.1791 Rev Azel Bakus was ordained and settled in Bethlehem.he also "fitted boys for college" teaching latin and greek . later left to become president of hamilton college (1813).1787 society incorporated into a townBethlem is a small town, ita average length being four and a half miles, and its breadth four miles. Its population by the census of 1850, was 815. It is almost wholly an agricultural town, its soil being fertile, with little waste land. It has, however, one woolen manufactory, two wagon shops, three saw-mills, one grist-mill, three cider distilleries, one blacksmith's shop, one shoemaker's shop, and three mercantile stores. It also has two churches, a town hall, a flourishing lyceum, two ministers and one physician.--------------washingtonThe present town of Washington is made up of territory taken from the towns of Woodbury, New Milford, Kent, and Litchfield, and is about six miles square. It contains two ecclesiastical societies, Judea and New Preston, though not the whole of the latter is included within the town. Judea society embraces all the territory taken from Woodbury and Litchfield, and constitutes about two-thirds of the extent of the town. But a small portion of this is contributed by Litchfield. New Preston embraces all the territory taken from Kent and New Milford. In both of these societies are Episcopal churches, having houses for religious worship. The first settlement in the town was made in Judea society, in 1734, the year this society and Bethlehem were divided among the proprietors of Woodbury. Joseph Hurlbut was the first settler, and the first framed house was built in 1736. The next settlers after Hurlbut were Increase Moseley, Nathaniel Durkee, John Baker, Friend Weeks, Joseph Gillett and Samuel Pitcher. The first sermon preached in the society was by Isaac Baldwin, of Litchfield, who afterward relinquished his profession, and became the first clerk of the county court for Litchfield county

    Five years later, the inhabitants had become more numerous, and twenty persons preferred a memorial to the General Assembly, at its May session, 1739, representing that they lived " full eight miles from the Meeting House," and that their wives and children had " to . tarry at home from the worship of God about half of the year," and therefore they pray for " liberty to have preaching six months in the winter," and to be released from paying taxes for a new school-house just built in the first society, and also from parish taxes, that they may build a school-house of their own. The privilege asked for was granted, to continue two years, and they were released from one-half of the parish taxes, and from taxes to build a new meeting-house, provided they were " in no ways Active in the Affair of Building a new Meeting House in said first Society."1 At the October session, 1741, twenty-six individuals petitioned to be incorporated into an ecclesiastical society, and appointed " Our Trusty and well-beloved friend, Friend Weeks, agent and attorney to prosecute our Petition." The petition was signed by Nathaniel Durkee, John Baker, Joseph Gillett, Joseph Chittenden, Elisha Stone, Samuel Pitcher, Jr., James Pitcher, Increase Moseley, Lemuel Baker, Daniel Castle, Samuel Branton, Ezra Terrill, Jr., Ebenezer Allen, Zadock Clark, Elijah Hurd, Joseph Hurd, Joseph Hurlbut, Benjamin Ingraham, Jr., Robert Durkee, Samuel Bell, Jonah Titus, Benjamin Ingraham, John Royce, John Hurd, Jr., Jedediah Hurd, Benjamin Hinman.

    In 1753, a putrid fever prevailed in this society (Judea), of which twenty or thirty died in six months. In 1776, the dysentery prevailed with great mortality. About thirty persons were swept away by it to the grave.

    Mr. Brinsmade's ministrations, from 1774 to 1784. This was a contention concerning the half-way covenant system,

    There have been several revivals, 1804, 1821, 1825, 1827, 1831 1748.n October, 1748, eleven persons dwelling in the south-eastern part of Kent, and nine living in the north-eastern part of New Milford, petitioned the General Assembly for liberty to hire a minister six months in the year, on the ground of their living " from seven to ten miles from their places of worship in New Milford and Kent." This request was granted, to continue four years, with exemption from parish rates. Before the end of the four years, in May, 1752, forty- one individuals petitioned for a new ecclesiastical society. Their names were Samuel Averill, Caleb Rude, Samuel Lake, Moses Averill, Henry Davis, Jehiel Murray, Isaac Averill, Joseph Carey, John Guthrie, Daniel Averill, Zebulon Palmer, Jacob Kinne, Samuel Cogswell, Thomas Hodgship, Thos. Morris, Benj. Darling, Samuel Waller, Nathaniel Deuine, Enoch Whjttlesey, Joseph Jons, Stephen Bosworth, Thomas Beeman, John Benedict, Stephen Noble, Gilead Sperry, Elnathan Curtis, John Bostwick, Benajah Bostwick, Matthew Beale, John Cogswell, Zephaniah Branch, Edward Cogswell, Emerson Cogswell, Josiah Cogswell, James Terrill, Joseph Miles, Nathan Hawley, Samuel Cogswell, John Cobb, Benjamin Capuen.At the same session, sixteen persons of East Greenwich, (now Warren,) remonstrated against the incorporation of a new society, stating that their society had lost " thirty-five rateable persons, and £1467 on their list," and that they therefore protest against having any part of their society cut off, as no families can be spared. Kent, at the same time, passed a vote, that this statement was true. New Milford also sent a committee to oppose the application, and it failed. In October, 1753, thirty-nine persons "in the Northern part of New Milford, and the South and South East part of Kent, and a place Called Merry-all," renewed the application for an ecclesiastical society, which was granted, and the society called New Preston, with the following boundaries :" Beginning at the South east corner of New Milford North Purchase, then tunning Southwardly joining upon Woodbury line one mile, from thence running a West line to ye part of the Long Mountain, South West of Capt.

    • Note: Removed to Greenfield, CT, where he signed in 1736 as "of Greenfield." ( the "Greenfield" of 1736 extended much further than it does today -- into Easton and Weston even part of Redding and Trumbull and perhaps a bit of Newtown.) ,The Northrop genealogy lists children William and Anna, and says "perhaps others"; it also says he probably died in 1736 or 1737, as his children quit-claimed in 1737. Jacobus gives a much more detailed list of the children, including one born as late as 1743.

    Why they moved where they movedMilford- perhaps to Ridgefield - perhaps to Plymouth - to Kent -to Warren - to Washington - to Westport * Some of the later moves may have been changes in town lines, rather than moves.*In early years power through voting or property was derived through church membership. Church attendance was mandatory even if the church was hours away through wilderness inclement weather and forbidding terrain.* a community had to seek permission to form a new parish. Sometimes it took decades for permission to be granted. In some cases only winter priveleges were granted. Since taxes were paid to the parish, it is no wonder that substantial opposition to a new parish was rather common.* It was not uncommon for some settlers to have several separate pieces of property in a colony which later ended up in separate towns. A number of towns stated out with dividing ertain areas for home lots and separate areas for farm lots (Newtown is an example).

    *Some colonists ended up with additional property in unsettled areas -- especially property in northwestern (mostly Litchfield County) and Durham CT. These properties may have been granted in lieu of payment for military service or for supplying provisions for defense.

    WestburyA book listing the graves in "The Old Burying Ground of Ancient Westbury and Present Watertown" was published by the Sarah Whitman Trumbull Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution in 1938.  It has been reprinted by Higginson Book Company, 148 Washington Street, Post Office Box 778, Salem, MA 01970.  It is their publication number CT0412, and is available on their website at http://www.higginsonbooks.com/  The book shows the wording on each of the 981 stones, and a map indicates where they are located in the cemetery.  The cemetery is located at the intersection of Main Street and French Street in Watertown, CT.As an aid to genealogical research, listed here is the index that is in the book.  The number after a name indicates the sequential number of the tombstone.  Use your browser's Edit / Find command to search for a particular name.  Be careful about spelling, some names may not be as you expect.       Old Burying Ground Index              Back to Genealogy Page"More than 210 years ago the area that is now Watertown belonged to the local Paugasuck Indians. But in 1684, Thomas Judd and 35 other proprietors bought the land from the Indians and Town history began. Around 1700, Obadiah Richards settled in the area of Upper Middlebury Road, and John Scott on Nova Scotia Hill Road.By 1710 they both had left for safer places. In 1729 a family named Garnsey settled in the section now called Guernseytown. Built in 1735, the Belden saltbox house on lower Main Street is the oldest house in Watertown. With 338 inhabitants, the First Ecclesiastical Society of Westbury was formed in 1738, and 42 years later, in 1780, Westbury separated from Waterbury and was named officially Watertown.For 15 years, however, it also included its territory Plymouth and Thomaston. The eastern area was incorporated as Plymouth in 1795. It soon became the crossroads for a number of early highways, and 12 scheduled train trips between Watertown and Waterbury. John Trumbull, poet of the Revolutionary War, who was also a lawyer and judge, was born here in 1750."from http://www.watertownct.org/content/10339/6913/7102/default.aspx----------------------The Old Burying Ground, Watertown, CT

    JEFFERSON - was formed from Blenheim, Feb. 12, 1803. A part of Summit was taken off in 1819. It is on the S. line of the co., near the S.W. corner. Its surface is a hilly upland, the principal summits being about 1,000 ft. above the valleys and 2,000 ft. above tide. Mine Hill, in the extreme S. part, is estimated to be 3,200 ft. above tide. A high ridge extending N.E. and S.W. through near the center forms the watershed between Delaware and Mohawk Rivers. Utsyanthia Lake is a small sheet of water on the S. line.* The soil is a gravelly and clayey loam. Jefferson, (p.v.,) near the center, contains 2 churches and 25 houses. Morseville, in the N. part, is a p.o. The first settlements were made, in different parts of the town, in 1794.** The first preacher was Rev. Stephen Fenn.

    *This lake is 1,800 ft. above tide. It is often mentioned in old documents, and was an angle in the bounds of Albany co. in colonial times. It is the source of the W. branch of the Delaware.

    **Amos and Caleb Northrop settled in the E. part; Samuel and Noah Judson, near Utsyanthia Lake; Henry Shelmerdine and James McKenzie, on West Kil; Stephen Marvin, Erastus Judd, and Aaron Jones, near the village. These were mostly from New England. The first marriage was that of Marvin Judd and Lois Gibbs, Aug. 1800; and the first death, that or Elsie Judd, in June 1799. Heman Hickok taught the first school, in 1799. Canfield Coe kept the first inn, in 1794; and Rodman Lewis the first store in 1800. Stephen Judd built the first sawmill, in 1796; and Heman Hickok the first gristmill, in 1799. Eli Jones built the first tannery, in 1810.

      Sources:

    Text: The evidence that Asahel Dutton and Sarah Frisbie were the parents of Asahel E. Dutton is circumstantial, but highly pursuasive:
    1.Asahel and Sarah's birth dates and marriage date are appropriate for them being the parents of the younger Asahel.
    2. The fact that both men had the same name is an obvious clue.
    3. The younger Asahel named one of his sons James Frisbie Dutton. James Frisbie was the name of one of Sarah's brothers.
    4. James Frisbie shared a claim to land in Bradford county, Pennsylvania with Solomon Moss, who was the father-in-law of the younger Asahel Dutton.
    5. The families of both the suspected parents and Asahel E. Dutton all moved to Poultney, VT. Sarah Frisbie and 4 of her brothers moved to the Poultney area when the younger Asahel was a young child. Further, the sister of the elder Asahel, Lois Dutton, moved to Poultney. The first docuement event involving the younger Asahel was his moving from Poultney in 1800. Text: Edward Frisbie of Branford and His Descendants, by Nora G. Frisbie.

    The beautiful country of Fairfield county so impressed Francis that he immediately began making plans to settle there. Although he went to Branford in 1657 and remained there for a time, he made his settlement in Fairfield county in 1660. He married Ruth Barlow, daughter of John Barlow. He purchased the house and homestead lot of 2 1/2 acres from William Hayden of Greenfield Hills in March, 1666. ... Francis secured large tracts of land in these different allotments, and his land extended from Green Field hill north of the Aspetuch River and to the north of Saugatuck. These parcels were known as the "Bradley Lands". Francis lived for a long time on what was called the "Long Lot" and other parcels of land assigned to him.

    In 1790 Captain Charles Pond, a seafaring man, who had commanded the " New Defense" in 1779 as a privateer, and others engaged in trade, shipbuilding and merchandising, as Charles Pond & Co. In 1793 they built the wharf on Gulf Neck, where is now the Merwin oyster industry. In 1811 Adam Pond, a son of Captain Charles Pond, and others formed the firm of Pond, Fowler & Co., and continued in trade until 1823. He was a successful foreign trader, and was well known among the shippers of New York. Pond, Baldwin & Co. were also in trade until 1814, when the firm was dissolved. Later came Miles, Strong & Miles, who were largely engaged in the shipping trade until the failure of the firm in 1821, since which time there has been but little foreign trade with Milford. Ships were built at Milford as early as 1690, by Bethuel Langstaff, who that year built a 150-ton brig for Alexander Bryan. In 1695 he built another vessel for Boston parties. The " Sea Flower," built for Richard Bryan, was launched in 1717, and from that time, for a little more than one hundred years ship- building was one of the leading industries of the town. Nearly every * Lambert. HISTORY OF NEW HAVEN COUNTY. 229 trader built his own vessels, and several yards were maintained at the village. A few small vessels were also built at Wheeler's Farm, on the Ho tonic. About 1760 Eli Gunn came to Milford and had a ship yard near his residence. In later times the principal ship yard was on the east side of the harbor, below Fowler's mill. Another yard was on the west side, between Dock lane and Wharf street. Among the master builders were Isaac Jones, called " Boss " Jones, and "Boss" John Rhodes. As ship carpenters there were, among others, John Hepburn, William Tibbals, Newton Northrup, Nathan Bristol, John Bump, Samuel Greene, John Bassett, John Rood, Caleb Northrup, Isaac Bristol, Samuel B. Gunn and Asa Gunn. Other ship builders were William Durand, David and William Atwater, Abraham Tomlinson and Farrand Clark. Captain Noah Kelsey, who had a shop near the Episcopal church, made many of the vessel irons used. Two of the last vessels of any size launched were the " Isabella," in 1818, and the " Marcellus," in 1820. This was built for Captain David P. Halsey, but was sold to Captain Nathan Gillett. The builders were W. H. Fowler and D. L. Baldwin. The venerable John W. Fowler says that in the period of Milford's greatest commercial activity, for about thirty years, ending in 1820, the following vessels were owned in Milford and sailed from that port: Ships: " Hesperus," by Pond, Baldwin & Co.; " Garune," by Miles, Strong & Miles; " Chase," "Vaucher," " Hamlet," by Stephen A. and Isaac Treat. Brigs: " Charles," " S n," " Martha," " Pond," by Pond, Baldwin & Co.; " Calena," " Behurin,"by Tomlinson & Clark; " Wepo- wage," " Milford," by Miles, Strong & Miles; " Friendship," " Thomas," by S. A. & I. Treat; " Patriot," by William Durand. The schooners built or sailing from Milford in the interests of the above were more than a dozen in number, and there was about the same number of sloops. A number of seafaring men dwelt at Milford, and it has been esti- mated that the casualties of such a life caused more than one hundred persons to find their last resting places in the waters of the mighty deep. It should be noted in this connection that an unusual propor- tion of Milford's seamen became the commanders of their vessels, which commends the bravery and the intelligence of this class of citi- zens. Indeed, some of the best people of the town followed the sea, and "at one time nearly every house contained a retired sea captain or the memory of one." Among those who rose to the rank of captain were: Benedict Bull, James Bull, Freeman Bassett, Mix Bradley, Philip Bull, Nehemiah Bristol, Edward Brown, William Coggeshall, Farrand Clark, Freegift Coggeshall, Charles Coggeshall, William Coggeshall, 230 HISTORY OF NEW HAVEN COUNTY.

In the ordinary lines of merchandising, Abraham Tomlinson & Co. were in trade at the beginning of the century, and in 1802 David L. Baldwin was one of their clerks. He became one of Milford's mer- chants, and was in trade until 1854. Contemporary with him latterly were Mark Tibbals, John W. Merwin and A. Clark. Nathan Fenn, a later merchant, was killed by burglars who entered his store. P. S. Bristol and the Cornwalls were merchants of a later period, the latter continuing and having as contemporaries the Fords, Platts, Shepherds and Buckinghams.

    THE TOWN OF MIDDLEBURY.
    ORGANIZED as a parish in 1791 and incorporated a town in 1807, Middlebury received its name from the fact that it occupies a middle position between Waterbury and Southbury, from which it was mainly formed. On the north is Watertown, and northwest Woodbury, in Litchfield county; south and southeast are Oxford and Naugatuck. The town is small, being less than five miles square, with greater length north and south. The surface is elevated and broken by high hills, the chief ones being Mount Fair, on the east, Sandy Hill, on the south, and Breakneck in the northwestern part. The latter, tradition says, received its name in the times of the revo- lution, when General Lafayette, with his command, passed over it on his way from the east to the Hudson river country. In descending the steep hill, one of the oxen used in transporting goods, fell and broke his neck — hence the name. It is a fact, however, that the name Breakneck was applied to that locality many years before the revolution,* and was, no doubt, suggested by its perpendicular appearance, as viewed from some directions. Many huge rocks are scattered over the surface of the town, or appear in ledges. Most of them are granite. There are fine lands in some localities, which have been well improved. In other parts the soil is not susceptible of successful tillage, being rough and sterile, but has been used for grazing pur- poses. Nearly the entire drainage is into the Naugatuck and the Ho - tonic. Into the latter stream flows the Eight Mile brook, being the boundary line on the west and the outlet of Quassepaug lake or pond. This is a beautiful sheet of water, with pleasant surroundings which have caused it to become a place of resort. Southeast is Kissawaug or Long Meadow pond, whose outlet, flowing into the Naugatuck, is Towantic brook. Hop brook, flowing into the same stream several miles farther north, drains the northeastern part of the town, having *See Cothren's " History of Woodbury." 75S HISTORY OF NEW HAVEN COUNTY. as affluents a number of small brooks. Numerous springs abound in the town. Nearly all the present territory of Middlebury was included in the Mattatuck purchase and the early history is closely connected with that of Woodbury and Waterbury. Settlements were not made as early as in the localities along the Naugatuck and the Pomperaug and by far the greatest influx was after the revolution. Among those who claim pioneer distinction were the Bronsons, in the Breakneck section, where, in 1707, was born in the family of Isaac Bronson, the first white child. This also received the name of Isaac, who became a well-known citizen of that part of the town and was the great-grand- father of Julius Bronson, born in the same locality in 1807, and who was, in 1890, one of the few surviving old men in the town. The Bronsons were numerous and influential; but few have remained in Middlebury. Here the Abbott family settled later and descendants occupy some of the old places improved many years ago. The Tyler family lived west of the Bronsons, in what is to this day called the Tylertown district. Here was born the Reverend Bennett Tyler, D. D., who became famous as one of the old school theologians, and was president of Dartmouth College. Ebenezer Smith was nearer the outlet of the Quassepaug, locating there about 1720. He had sons named Ebenezer, Samuel and Daniel, the former serving in the revolution. For many years they were lead- ing men in that part of the town, in which some of the Tuttles also settled in 1740, and became active in affairs of the community. In the southern part of the town David Wooster settled about the same time. He opened a good farm and made fine improvements. The Wooster house, built before the revolution, still remains in a good state of preservation. Historic interest attaches to it on account of the fact that Chauncey Judd was there confined several days after the robbery of Captain Dayton, of Bethany,* in the revolution. The prop- erty still belongs to the Wooster family. In 1800, or soon after, there lived in Middlebury, James Tyler, Ash- bel Munson, Abner Munson, Thaddeus Bronson, Elisha Blackman, James Porter, Jonathan Sanford, Titus Bronson, Thomas B. Wooster, Philo Bronson, Gad Bristol, Anson Tuttle, Ephraim Tuttle, Jairus Bronson, Roswell Tyler, Jacob Hall, Beers Radford, Job Wheeler, Daniel Abbott, Eli Thompson, Ebenezer Smith, Jr., Daniel Tyler, Jr., Aaron Benedict, Ebenezer Richardson, David Hine, Adonijah Scott, Samuel Benham.

In the last 50 years the character of 'the population has been changed, many of the old families becoming extinct and a new ele- ment coming in. The inhabitants are also less in number than 50 years ago, being less than 700. Middlebury was incorporated as a town by an act of the October, 1807, general assembly, on the petition of Ebenezer Smith and others of the Society of Middlebury, in the towns of Waterbury, Woodbury and Southbury. The petition was filed April 24th, 1807, and the prayer was that the bounds of the town should be the same as those of the parish of Middlebury. The towns of Woodbury and Southbury consented to the incorporation without protest, but Waterbury objected, as the arrangement would deprive it of some of its best citizens. The question of the relative support of the poor and the maintenance of the bridges on division lines was left for decision to a commission com- posed of Andrew Hull and Rufus Hitchcock, of Cheshire: Josiah Dudley, of Derby, and Mark Harrison, of Wolcott. This committee was to meet at Beecher's inn, at Naugatuck, in December, 1807. The Ecclesiastical Society of Middlebury was created by the gen- eral assembly December 29th, 1790, and the new parish was made to embrace parts of Woodbury, Waterbury and Southbury. The meet- ing for organization was held January 27th, 1791, and arrangements were soon made for preaching services. Provision was also made for building a meeting house. A frame structure, 38 by 54 feet, was put up in 1793, and was used early the following year. It was last occu- pied May 5th, 1839, when it was taken down and the erection of the present edifice begun. This was dedicated April 29th, 1840, and cost, as then arranged, $3,438.41. It was at that time regarded as a fine place of worship, but subsequent improvements have modernized it and made it more attractive. A parsonage on an adjoining lot af- fords a comfortable home. The members of the society were not constituted a church until February 10th, 1796, when the following 12 persons entered into cov- enant relations: Josiah Bronson, Isaac Bronson, Thomas Richardson, Nathan Osborn, Samuel Chatfield, Seth Bronson, James Tyler, Titus Bronson, Elijah Bronson, Josiah Bronson, Jr., Eunice Richardson, Elizabeth Osborn. At this time Josiah Bronson was chosen as the clerk of the church. On the following March 22d, 24 more persons were added to the membership of the church, the males being Daniel Tyler, John Stone and John Thompson. Among the females were the wives of Isaac Bronson, Josiah Bronson, James Tyler, James Manville, Samuel Chat- field, Seth Bronson, Elijah Bronson, Eli Bronson, Nathaniel Richard- son, Thomas Barnes, Asa Lyman, Daniel Tyler, Eli Thompson, Amos 764 HISTORY OF NEW HAVEN COUNTY. Curtis, John Thomson, Josiah Bronson, Jr., Ezekiel Tuttle, Reuben Webb, Roswell Bronson. The deacons appointed this year were Na- than Osborn and Seth Bronson. In 1799 15 persons were enrolled as members, and in 1800, 37 joined. For the next dozen years, but a few joined each year, but in 1814, 26 joined, and in 1817, 28. A like number were added in 1822. In the three years following 1830, about 100 persons entered into fel- lowship. In 1842 there was another period of revival, some 25 persons joining ; about the same number were added in 1855, and nearly double that number joined in 1868. In 1889 the church had 91 mem- bers, of whom 30 were reported as living outside of the bounds of the parish. The church had no regular minister until the Reverend Ira Hart was ordained and installed November 6th, 179S. He was dismissed April 5th, 1809, and was succeeded by the Reverend Mark Mead, or- dained and installed November 4th, 1809, and dismissed March 30th, 1830; Jason Atwater, installed October 20th, 1830, and dismissed October 15th, 1845; George P. Prudden, as stated supply, from Decem- ber, 1845, to March 30th, 1851; Joel R. Arnold, as stated supply, from December 1st, 1851, to March, 1854; R. J. Cone, as stated supply, from June 3d, 1854, to December 16th, 1855; Jonathan S. Judd, installed June 25th, 1856, and died during his pastorate, May 11th, 1864; Clin- ton Clark, as stated supply, commencing June 1st, 1865. He was sud- denly taken ill September 23d, 1871, and died on the highway between the farms of Eli and Jerad Bronson. Reverend David Breed began preaching in May,1872, and was install- ed October 17th, the same year. He resigned October 30th, 1876, and was the last regular pastor. The ministers since that time have been stated supplies, as follows: H. G. Marshall, from June 1st, 1877, to June 7th, 1885; William J. Murphy, from October 4th, 18S5, to November 6th, 1887; Myron A. Munson, from May 28th, 1888, to November 25th, same year; William F. Avery, since December 17th, 1888. Those elected to the office of deacon were, in 1796, Nathan Osborn and Seth Bronson, the latter serving until his death in 1828; John Stone, 1799-1834; Ebenezer Richardson, 1818-26; Sherman Curtis, 1825-48; Leonard Bronson, 1833-50; Daniel Clark, 1833-6; Giles A. Gaylord, 1836-42; Robert H. Bronson, 1845-52; Joseph P. Piatt, 1852- 63; Marcus Bronson, 1853-6; Gillman E. Hill, 1856-79;* Gould S. Clark, 1864 to present time; Lewis B. Tucker, 1872-6; J. C. Scovill, 1877-87;* David M. Fenn, 1888 to present time; Frederick G. Scott, 1888 to pres- ent time. Doctor M. De Forest is clerk of the parish and treasurer of the several funds created for the maintenance of the church work. The oldest of these, the "Ministerial Fund," was begun March 17th, 1790, and was raised to £1,086, or about $3,621. The contributions varied *Died in office. HISTORY OF NEW HAVEN COUNTY. 765 from £1 to ^105, the latter being given by Benjamin Munson. Josiah Bronson was the treasurer of this so-called "Bank for the support of the Gospel in Middlebury." In 1890 this fund amounted to $3,725. A second or new fund was raised by "The Middlebury Fund Company," organized January 13th, 1814, and originally amounted to $1,136. Philo Bronson was clerk of this fund and was succeeded by Ebenezer Smith, Robert Camp and Doctor De Forest, in the order named. The Sabbath school connected with the church has 75 members en- rolled, and D. M. Fenn is the superintendent. It is said that Jesse Lee visited the town as early as 1790* and preached the doctrines of Methodism; that eight years later Peter Van Ness came, and was followed, in 1800, by James Coleman; by Ebenezer Woodburn, in 1803; Phineas Pierce, in 1808; Gad Smith, in 1812; and Billy Hibbard, in 1815. They held meetings at the houses of Daniel and David Abbott; in a barn and cider mill, near Tylertown; at the Breakneck school house, and more latterly at the academy at the Cen- ter. As a result a number of persons were converted and the pres- ent Methodist church thus early had its beginning. Among the early members were: at the first period named, Daniel Abbott; in 1806, Thomas B. Wooster, Jacob Hall, Ephraim Tuttle, Joseph Mun- son, Lucinda Wooster Munson; in 1810, James Wooster and Nancy his wife, the former a very pious man and the latter also abounding in good works which were richly attested in her legacy of $1,500. In 1812 or 1813, David Abbott and Sarah Tyler, his wife, became Meth- odists, the latter leaving the Congregational church, much against the will of her parents and friends. For many years this worthy couple were leading Methodists, and their son, Ira, was a minister from 1839 until 1875. Another son, Alvin, also preached a short time. Four grandsons followed in the same steps, viz.: Larmon W. Abbott, Alvin V. R. Abbott (son of Alvin Abbott), Bennett F. Abbott (son of Ira Abbott) and Joseph W. Munson. Daniel Wooster also became a Meth- odist minister. In 1814, among the additions were Daniel Wooster, Almira Wheeler, Aunt "Becky" Buckley, so wonderfully gifted in prayer, and Aunt "Becky" Tuttle. In about 1818 the additions were Ruth Mallory, Anson Tuttle, Philo Woodruff, Eliza and Mary Northrup Harriet and Lucy Munson, S n Tyler, Willis Treat, Joseph Wheeler, Joel Atwood, John Northrup and Truman Wooster. For a period of ten years the growth was slow and some members removed; but in 1831, under the preaching of Heman Bangs, there was a renewed interest and the purpose of building a church was now formed. In 1832 James Wooster leased a lot of land at the Center on which to build the house of worship. On this lot the district school house stood and there was some objection to the Methodists occupying it, but these were overruled. The school house was moved ♦From account by Anson F. Abbott. 766 HISTORY OF NEW HAVEN COUNTY. and good fellowship with the opposing Congregationalists was soon established. The building, begun in 1832, was not completed for sev- eral years, when it was occupied at a cost of $3,000. It is a plain, al- most square structure, having a two-story appearance so as to afford gallery room. In 1878 it was thoroughly improved at an outlay of about $500, and a parsonage, near by, was purchased for $1,000. The principal actors in this movement were Nelson J. Hayes, H. W. Munson, Ira Abbott, Lewis Tyrrell, Levings Abbott, Harriet L. Gaylord and Charity S. Fisher, a few only of whom lived in 1890. The house has a most beautiful location and the surroundings are fairly well kept. The property is valued at $4,500.

    METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH, SOUTHPORT.'S
    From about the year 180.5 to 1820, Methodist meetings were held at Green's Farms in the houses of Peter Jennings and Noah Osborn, and in the schoolhouse. Green's Farms formed part of an extended circuit, and was visited by the Conference preacher once a month. In the absence of the preacher, Bradford Croft, a local preacher, supplied for them. Ebenezer
    Washburn was the first preacher appointed by Conference ; Samuel Croft was the first class-leader. He and Bradford Croft and Joshua and Peter Wakeman were among the first official members of the church. The Crofts and their wives, Mrs. Wakeman, and Mr.
    Stratten were among the first niembers of the church. In 1820, when the Green'.s Farms church was built, there were about forty members. They worshipped in that church till 1845, when the present church was built at Southport, largely by the liberality of Capt.
    Davis, a noble, generous, and faithful Chiristian, who is still living. The determination to build the present church was made during the ministry of Rev. Zachariah Davenport, still living and greatly respected; he preached on the circuit that included Green's Farms during the years 1843—44. In 1845 it was dedicated.
    The following is the list of preachers who have been appointed to Southport since the erection of the present church: Charles C. Keys, 1845; Charles Bartlett, 1840; James H.Perry, 1847-48; G. Gilbert, 1849- 50; Levis. Weed, 1851; William McAllister, 1852- .53; Reuben II. Loomis, 1854; George Hollis, 1855- .56; Samuel A. Seaman, 1857-58; Seymour Landon,
    1859-GO; David Osborn, 1861-62; Charles Kelsey, 1863; W. Smith, 1864-65; G. Gilbert, 1866; David Nash, 1867-69; William Stebbins, 1870-72; L. W. Abbott, 187.3-75; William Brown, 1876; Henry A. Van Dalscm, 1877-78; .Joseph Smith, 1879-80. The present official members of the church are Stewards, Bradley Goodsell, Sr., Benjamin N. Hawkens, Andrew W. Jennings, Lewis B. Jennings, William F. Northrop, George E. Northrop, George F. :McKeel, A. P. Jennings, Elijah Gray ; Trustees, B. N. Hawkens, A. W. Jennings, L. B. .Jennings, Bradley Goodsell, Elijah Gray, Josiah Hawkens, William F.

    Samuel Northrop removed his family from Salisbury, Conn., to Lenox, in 1770, when his daughter Phebe was but three years of age, coming with an ox team most of the distance, but at times being obliged to travel on horseback by the guidance of marked trees. Samuel located on East street. He died in 1786, aged 42 years. Col. Elijah Northrop, a younger brother of Samuel, accompanied him to Lenox, and erected a house next south of his brother on the place now owned by Thomas Sedgwick, which house was used as a tavern during the Revolutionary war, and is one of the oldest houses in the place. Col. Northrop died in 1832, at the age of eighty-two. During the Revolution, Indians and wild game were plenty, and often troublesome. Mr. Northrop used to relate that on one occasion he and others killed three bears close to his house. At another time he had killed a deer and brought it into the house, when an Indian called and claimed it, as he had followed it all day. It was finally decided to give it to the "child of the forest."GaAZETTEER OF bERKSHIRE cOUNTY Revolutionary Soldiers

      Almon is the name Sarah Wakeman Alvord so I suspect a connection.

Chief among these were the paper mills; but there were also cotton mills, foundries, tanneries and leather factories, wheel shops, lumber and cabinetry mills, and limestone quarries and kilns in addition to the saw mills, grist mills, and blacksmith shops established when the settlers first came. Communities, including Rock City Falls, West Milton, Milton Center, Craneville, Factory Village, Bloodville, and Rowland’s hollow, were clustered in the mill areas where churches, schools, stores, hotels and boarding houses were established. Family dairy farms and orchards dotted the landscape surrounding these settlements. Transportation continued to be by foot, horseback, and carriage or wagon over dirt roads until 1896 when the mills and communities along the Kayaderosseras were joined by an electric railway running from Ballston Spa to Middle Grove to provide both freight and passenger service that connected to other rail lines in the Village of Ballston Spa.The town of Milton is second in importance to Saratoga Springs in point of population and wealth, but probably the first town in the county in the extent and value of its manufactures. Milton is bounded on the north by Greenfield, on the east by Saratoga Springs and Malta, on the south by Baliston and Chariton, and on the west by Gaiway. It contains 20,935 acres.  Just before the Revolution David Wood and his sons, Stephen, Benjamin, Elijah, Nathan and Enoch, purchased 600 acres at Milton Hill and moved into the town. Justus Jennings, a Revolutionary soldier, settled near Hop City about 1783. An old record dated Apr. 10, 1818, mentions "Elihu Alvord for- merly of Fairfield, Conn., now of Black Rock, N. Y." Mr. Fish, grandson of Elihit Alvord writes that his grandfather lived for a few years after leaving Conn, at Albany, N. Y., and was employed in the shipyards there. He removed from Ellicottville, N. Y., to Scot Co., la., in 1837 settling on a claim 18 miles north of Davenport. He Sixth Generation 167 was the oldest member of the Scott Co. Pioneer Ass. and was prob- ably the oldest settler in the county. In 1857 when Mr. Alvord was eighty-one years old he visited his old home in Conn. By occupa- tion he was a cabinet maker and had considerable mechanical genius, so that he was wont to spend hours at a time endeavoring to perfect perpetual motion. He was fond of horticulture, a great reader and highly esteemed by all who knew him. His home, during the last years of his life was with his daughter, Alary Ann Fish, at Walnut Grove, la. When eighty-eight years old he walked from Walnut Grove, la., to Davenport, a distance of 18 miles, to visit his son C. C. Alvord. It was in July and the sun was very hot. The next day he was taken with an attack of cholera morbus from which he died on the second morning after leaving home. At the organization of St. John's Episcopal Church at Ellicottville, N. Y., Elihu Alvord was chosen vestryman, Sept., 1829. Property was deeded to Elihu Alvord of Milton, Saratoga Co., N. Y., in 1806 ; to Elihu Alvord of Marcellus, N. Y., in 1810 ; from Elihu Alvord and wife of Cayuga Co., N. Y., in 1812, of Ellicottville, N. Y., in 1833. Elisha is in Canaan, ColumbiaCounty, NY (near Chatham) 1n 1810 The first settlers arrived around 1759. The town was founded in 1772 as "Kings District." The name was changed to "Canaan" in 1788. One of the oldest sections of Canaan is Frisbie Street, settled in 1770 by Gideon Frisbie, who emigrated from Canaan, CT.[1]Frisbie Street fronts what was once the Albany-Boston stagecoach route.

    Town of Canaan
    Canaan has an area of 36.7 square miles on NY's border with Massachusetts in northern Columbia County. The town of Canaan includes parts of East Chatham, the rest of which is in the town of Chatham. Similarly, parts of Red Rock are included within Canaan's southern boundary. Canaan is bordered by Austerlitz to the south, New Lebanon to the north, Massachusetts to the east, and Chatham to the west. Canaan was founded by settlers from Canaan, CT in 1759.

    Canaan – The hamlet of Canaan is at the junction of Routes 5 and 295. it was formerly "Canaan Corners."Canaan Center – A hamlet south of Canaan village on Route 5.East Chatham – A hamlet at the west town line.Edwards Park – A location southeast of Flatbrook.Flatbrook – A hamlet southeast of Canaan village and located on Route 22.Queechy – A hamlet east of Canaan village.Queechy Lake – A lake near the east town line.Red Rock – A hamlet at the south town line.The town was founded in 1772 as "Kings District." The name was changed to "Canaan" in 1788. Elijah Northrup was a master carpenter who came from Newtown in Fairfield County, CT, in 1815. He was soon engaged to build "the Union Meeting House". As there are two such in the Little Nine Partners, this was probably the one in Pulvers Corners, as the other, in Bethel, was erected 1839 by one Carmen Cornellius.Master Carpenter Northrup is said to have introduced the "square rule" framing method, replacing the old cut-and-try method. Timber was dressed in the field and the pieces fit perfectly when put in place on site. Whether this means that he invented the method has not been discovered.Northrup married a daughter of John Couch and Rhoda Bennett, had nine children, all born in Pine Plains, and at an unknown date removed to Newark, NJ. Elijah Northrup was my 6C6.


    Pine Plains NW of Sharon The town was part of the Little Nine Partners Patent of 1706. The town was first settled around 1740 by Moravian missionaries to the native Mahican village of Shekomeko. The Town of Pine Plains was formed from the Town of North East in 1823.
