1. Daniel Cool U.E.

The oldest settler in the township. William Tufts makes reference to a birthdate on a baptism record at St. Martins

Lutheran Church, Queens County, Long Island, New York, but I have never been able to confirm this. Probably born

about 1741. I have several photographic examples of his mark and his signature. He received a singular honour in that

he was able to take possession of his choice of land at Adolphustown without having to participate in the drawing of land

tickets. (1784) He had the largest family and was thus anxious to start preparing his land, and such was the good feeling

of his fellows, that they afforded him this kindness. See Dr. Wm Canniff's book, The Settlement of Upper Canada.

In the tax rolls of New York, there is a Daniel Cole at Fishkill, Rombout Precinct for 1775-1777. This is probably he, as

there are many Delongs, DeLanges, DeLangens, Huycks nearby.

Came to Adolphustown June 16 1784 from Sorel (May 21st) and to Quebec (Oct 8th) from New York, Sept 8 1783, in a

fleet of 7 sail under the protection of the Brig "Hope" of 40 guns.

History of the Settlement of Upper Canada, With Special Reference to the Bay of Quinte. SETTLEMENT OF


They sailed from New York on the 8th Sept. 1783, and arrived at Quebec, 8th Oct. Many were undecided whether to

remain in the Lower Provinces, or go on to Canada. The events of this voyage; this departure from old homes, to

penetrate the unknown north, are even yet held in remembrance by their descendants. Thus, it is told, that after leaving

New York a few days, a shark was observed following the vessel, which created no little consternation. It continued to

follow for many days, until a child had died and been consigned to the deep, after which it was no longer seen. The

Government rations with which they were supplied, consisted, as the story has been told the writer, of "pork and peas for

breakfast; peas and pork for dinner; and for supper, one or the other." The party proceeded from Quebec thence to Sorel,

where they spent the winter. They inhabited their linen tents, which afforded but little protection from the intense cold.

While staying there, it was determined to grant them a township on the Bay Quinté. The first Township had been granted

to Capt. Grass, the second and third were to be possessed by Johnson's Second Battalion; so VanAlstine's corps were to

have the next township. Surveyor Holland was engaged in completing the survey, and even then, had his tent pitched on

the shore of the fourth township. The party left Sorel 21st May, 1784, in a brigade of batteaux, and reached the fourth

township on the 16th June. The names of some of those who composed this party, were: VanAlstine, Ruttan, Huycks,

Velleau, Maybee, Coles, Sherman, Ballis, three families of Petersons, Loyce, VanSkiver, Philip and Thomas Dorland,

Cornelius VanHorn, VanDusen, Hagerman, father of the late Judge Hagerman, Angel Huff, Richard Beagle, John and

Stephen Roblin, Fitzgerald, Michael Stout, Capt. Joseph Allan, Hover, Ferguson, John Baker, Wm. Baker, German, Geo.

Rutter, James Noxen, John Casey, Benj. Clapp, Geo. Rutledge, David Barker, Owen Roblin.
History of the Settlement of Upper Canada, With Special Reference to the Bay of Quinte. SETTLEMENT OF


The company had reached the land whereon they were to work out their future existence. The writer has driven upon the

ice along the Bay, following, it must have been, almost the way taken by this party, as they landed. They passed along the

present Adolphustown wharf, westward nearly half a mile, and rounded a point known as Hagerman's Point. Here a small, but deep stream empties itself, having coursed along a small valley, with sloping sides, in a westerly direction. They ascended this creek for nearly a quarter of a mile; and proceeded to land upon its south side. Between the creek and the bay is a pleasant eminence; it was upon its slopes the settlers, under VanAlstine, pitched their tents. The boats were

hauled up; and among the trees, the white tents were duly ranged. Thus housed, and thus far removed from the busy

haunts of men, this community continued to live for many days. Steps were taken at an early day to draw lots for land. As

so much of the township was washed by the waters of the bay, there was not the same anxiety among the settlers with

respect to the decision of the ballot. Every one drew his number, with one exception and this was a notable one, as

indicating the noble feeling of brotherhood which lived in the breasts of the noble band of refugees. The exception was

not in favour of the person in command, or a particular friend. Mr. Cole had expressed a liking for the first lot, now

known as Cole's Point, and he, having a large family and consequently more anxious to get on his land, and get settled

for the winter, and the land ready for the next summer, was immediately, by universal consent, put in possession of the

lot; and he even that year raised some potatoes.

DIED.–"On Friday the 5th of August, at his residence in Adolphustown, Mr. Daniel Cole, at the very advanced age of

105 years, 1 month and 12 days. He was a native of Long Island, N. Y., and the oldest settler in this township; he was

respected and beloved by all who knew him–having long performed his duty as a loyal subject, a faithful friend, a kind

husband, an indulgent parent, and an obliging neighbor. Born in the fifth year of the reign of George II, he lived under

four Sovereigns, and saw many changes both in the land of his birth, and this of his adoption. He has beheld the horrors

of war, and has tasted of the blessings of peace; he has seen that which was once a wilderness, "blossom and flourish like

the rose," where formerly was nothing to be seen but the dark shadow of the lofty pine, oak, and maple, here and there

broken by the thin blue vapor curling above the Indian wigwam, he has seen comfortable dwellings arise; out of the

superabundance of nature man has supplied his necessity. Beneath the untiring efforts of human industry, the dark woods

have disappeared and waiving fields of grain have taken their place. Where once was seen nought but the light birch bark

canoe of the "son of the forest," he has beheld the stately steamboats sweep majestically along–where formerly resounded

the savage howl of the panther, the wolf and bear, he has seen towns and villages spring up, as it were by magic; in fact

the very face of the country seems changed since he first sat down upwards of 52 years ago, as a settler on the place

where he died."

On June 16, 1784, a party of some 250 United Empire Loyalists landed from bateaux near this site and established the

first permanent white settlement in Adolphustown Township. They had sailed from New York in the fall of 1783 under

the leadership of Major Peter Van Alstine (1747-1811), a Loyalist of Dutch ancestry, and passed the winter at Sorel. Van

Alstine was later appointed a justice of the peace, represented this area in the first Legislative Assembly of Upper Canada

Early Dutchess County History

When, in 1682, Colonel Thomas Dongan was appointed Governor of the Province of New York, he was instructed to

form a council of not more than ten of the "most eminent Inhabitants" who were to assist him in the making of "fit" laws.

One of the first acts authorized by this council was the erection of twelve "countyes," of which Dutchess was one

(November 1, 1683). The boundaries of Dutchess, as then defined, included the present county of Putnam, set off in 1812

and the towns of Clermont and Germantown, now in Columbia County. Dutchess, with an area of 810 square miles, is

situated on the Hudson about midway between Albany and New York City. Its terrain is hilly, but with much that is

splendidly fitted for cultivation. A large number of streams drain the surface, and it was the latent water power of these

streams that brought about its early settlement. The southern end of the county almost reaches the Highlands of the

Hudson, while on its eastern border are the Taconic (Taghkanic) Mountains. Slate is plentiful, and was once quarried in

quantity. Marble and lime stone, several minerals of minor value, and a varied and fertile soil, make up the natural

resources of the region. The Hudson was for a century the main means of transportation, and one of the early railroads

had its tracks through the western part of the county. The agriculture of the district has always been diversified, following

the natural changes in demand for its products. There has been much of the acreage of the section taken by men of wealth

for the creation of large estates. Horticulture has been prominent along the river valley, apples and small fruits doing

exceedingly well. The larger part of the county is interested in dairying, in which its proximity to great markets gives it a

marked advantage. Manufactures play a large part in the prosperity of Dutchess, Poughkeepsie being the center, with the

smaller towns along the river having many local specialties.

There had been a very early establishment of trading posts on the island of Manhattan, Fort Orange (Albany) and at

Rondout Creek, Esopus (Kingston) which decided the location of the first settlements in the State. But when immigrants

began coming in greater numbers, water powers such as those provided by the Fishkill, Wappingers, Fall Kill, Crumb's

Elbow and other creeks in the area that is now Dutchess, together with the fine fertile valleys of these streams, led a

number to start homes in this region. The Indian titles had, for the most part, been extinguished just before the erection of

the county. Nicholas Emigh is credited with being the pioneer, the date of his settlement at the mouth of Fishkill Creek

being in doubt, but he was certainly there in 1685. To his wife was born the first white child of the county. The

settlements at Poughkeepsie were nearly contemporaneous with those at Fishkill, probably by Peter Lasinck, ancestor of

a numerous family which spells its name in many forms, Lansing and Lawson being more usual. There were too few

inhabitants of Dutchess at its erection for it to be represented separately in the General Assembly, so that it was

provisionally attached to Ulster until 1713. This fact had made it difficult to trace the early settlers of Dutchess. There

was no large development of this region until after 1720.

Along the Hudson, the first settlements were predominatingly Dutch, with a few Huguenots, fugitives from European

persecution. The eastern part of the county was filled by people of New England, all that side of the State being claimed

by the New England colonies. Quakers came in the southern part of Dutchess at an early date, while many of the Irish

soldiers who had been stationed along various parts of the Harlem Valley homesteaded after the Revolution. It is said that

in early times there were more creeds and denominations with churches in Dutchess than there were races, which is but

another indication that Dutchess was one of the most cosmopolitan counties in the colonies.

2. Barent Cool U.E.

1803 poundkeeper (until 1828). Concession 4. His wife's family (Blakely)had an elaborately carved powderhorn

showing the routes the loyalists took to Canada. It is now displayed in the Museum of Civilization, Hull, Canada.

Owned the large skiff which 18 young people used to cross Hay Bay Aug 29 1819 and 10 drowned.

his father was taxed through June 1767 and removed with the family to Albany near Fort Edward. As noted above he was

too young to join the British when his brother Israel did but joined in 1779. He was on the Cataraqui Roll of Loyalists in

Oct. 1784 as a single man. He was next to Arra and Rozel Ferguson. He was there in 1785, again adjacent to Arra and

Roz (sic) Ferguson. In July/August 1786 he was still there listed as a single man, as were Ara Ferguson and Rosel

Ferguson. Farrington Ferguson the 3rd took refuge in Hallowell, Ontario, Canada after the Revolution and had a number

of children. He was most likely the man who married Elizabeth, b. 16 Nov., bp. 3 Dec. 1770 in Poughkeepsie, dau. of

History of the Settlement of Upper Canada, With Special Reference to the Bay of Quinte. INDIVIDUAL


COLE.–In the history of Adolphustown, reference is made to Daniel Cole, the very first settler in that township. The

writer in the summer of 1866, took dinner with John Cole, of Ameliasburgh, son of Daniel. John was then in his 92nd

year. He has since, 1867, passed away. Born in Albany before the rebellion, he, with his family during the war, found

their way as loyalists to the city of New York, where they remained until the leaving of VanAlstine's company. The old

man could remember many of the events of that [p.645] exciting period, being, when they came to Canada, about ten

years old. The brigade of batteaux from Sorel, was under the supervision of Collins, he says: "Old Mother Cook kept

tavern in Kingston, in a low flat hut, with two rooms. There were four or five houses altogether in the place. Landed in

fourth township in June. Saw no clearings or buildings all the way up from Kingston, nor tents; a complete wilderness.

Remembers an early settler in second township, named Cornelius Sharp, from the fact that he injured his knee, and that

Dr. Dougall desired to amputate; but his father cured it. His mothers name was (Maria) de Long, from Albany. She lost

property. A hogshead of spirits was brought up from New York. The settlers were called together every morning and

supplied with a little on account of the new climate. His father had been a spy and carried despatches in a thin steel box,

which was placed between the soles of the boot. Before resorting to this mode he had been caught, and sentenced to be

hanged immediately. The rope was around his neck, and the end thrown over the limb of a tree, when he suddenly gave a

spring from their grasp, and ran, while shot after shot was leveled at his flying figure; but he escaped, "God Almighty

would not let the balls hit him." Remembers the Indians when first came, were frequently about, would come in and look

at the dinner table; but refused to eat bread at first; afterward would, and then brought game to them in abundance at

times. Remembers landing at Adolphustown, he hauled the boat to a black oak tree, which overhung the water, his father

built a wharf here afterwards. It was in the afternoon. They all went ashore. There were three tents of linen put up. His

father brought a scythe with him, with which they cut marsh hay, or flags. This was used to cover the houses, and they

kept out the rain well.

His father's family consisted of twelve persons, two died at Sorel. The settlers used to meet every Sunday to hear the

Bible read, generally by Ferguson; sometimes had prayer. Remembers, Quarter Sessions met at his father's, Cartwright

was Judge. The Grand Jury would go to the stable to converse. Says he once saved Chrys. Hagerman's life, who was

bleeding at nose, after Drs Dougall and Dunham had failed. His father lived to be 105, his sister died last year, aged 101.

Remembers the man that was convicted of stealing a watch, and hanged. Has seen the gallows on Gallows Point, Captain

Grass' farm. The gallows remained there a dozen years. The man it turned out, was innocent.

The first Preparative Meeting of the Society of Friends (Quakers) in either Upper or Lower Canada was organized in

Adolphustown Township in 1798 at the house of Philip Dorland. Quakers had settled in this district in 1784 and at first

held religious gatherings in private homes. In 1795 a frame meeting house was authorized and shortly thereafter it was

erected on this site. A Monthly Meeting was formed in 1801 which aided the formation of further Quaker Meetings in the

Bay of Quinte area. A new meeting house was built here in 1868 but was abandoned after the Monthly Meeting was

discontinued in 1871 and only this burying ground remains.

persons. She was said to be engaged to Mr Joseph Johnson (later the father of George S. Johnson of Belleville) who was

one of the group. He saved 3 of the 4 Coles... Conrad, Barent and Isabelle. In all 8 were saved and 10 lost.

History of the Settlement of Upper Canada, With Special Reference to the Bay of Quinte. THE SEVERAL BAYS. page


The accident on Hay Bay took place on a Sunday morning, 20th August, 1819. On the south shore of the bay, in the

Methodist meeting-house, was this day a Quarterly Meeting. Quarterly meetings, in the early days of the country, were

always largely attended, persons coming from a considerable distance. On this occasion there were present many from

the adjacent townships. Not a few came from the banks of the Napanee. Those living to the north of the bay had to cross

to the place of meeting by boat. It was a bright sunny Sabbath morning, and already had many crossed and were joining

in the religious services, when there put off from the north shore, a short distance from Casey's Point, a boat load,

consisting of eighteen young men and women, most of whom lived along the bay. "They were all dressed in good and

modest apparel as befitted the day, and the house and worship of God. Buoyant with the cheerfulness of youth, and the

emotions of piety, they sang as they stepped into the boat, and as they made progress to the other shore. The boat being

rather leaky, and so many, pressing it too near the water's edge, the water came in and increased fast, and they had no

vessel to bail with. Unhappily, the young men did not think of bailing with their clean hats, or did not like to do so, until

it was too late. The boat filled and sank, when near the other shore, and these eighteen young men and women, crying

and shrieking, went down into the deep water. At the time of crossing, there was a prayer meeting proceeding in the

chapel. One of those present was now engaged in prayer, and had just uttered the petition that "it might be a day long to

be remembered," when a shriek was heard, another, and another. The prayer was stopped, and some ran up to the pulpit

to look out, and saw the youths struggling in the water. All ran to the shore, and some plunged in to render assistance.

Eight were taken to the shore. Ten bodies were yet in the water. A seine was prepared, and so the bodies of these

unhappy youths, a few hours ago so blythe and cheerful were brought dripping to the land. One was not recovered till the

next morning. Two young men were drowned, and eight young women. Two were of the German family, two Detlors,

one Bogart, one Roblin, one McCoy, one Clark, one Madden, and one Cole. The grief of the families, so suddenly

bereaved, gathered together on the shore, gazing at the loved bodies, may be better imagined than described. The grief,

too, was shared by the large congregation assembled, and by the minister. No public worship was attended to, but

preparations for the solemn funeral.

On Aug. 22, 1775 -

England's King George III proclaimed the "American colonies in a state of open rebellion."

PROCLAMATION "Those loyalists who have adhered to the Unity of the Empire and joined the Royal standard before

the Treaty of Separation in the year 1785, and all their children and their descendants by either sex are to be

distinguished by the following capitals, affixed to their names; U.E. Alluding to their Great Principle - The Unity Of The


In November, 1789, Lord Dorchester, requested the council at Quebec "to put a mark of honor upon the families who

adhered to the unity of the Empire and joined the Royal Standard in America before the treaty of separation in the year

1783." The council concurred, and thereafter all Loyalists were "to be distinguished by the letter U.E. affixed to their

names, alluding to their great principle, the unity of the Empire." A register of the U.E. Loyalists was ordered to be kept,

and for twenty years names were added to this list. The distinction has not been assumed.

The Loyalists resident in New York went to Britain, Nova Scotia, and Upper Canada. It is estimated that 2,000 persons

crossed the Atlantic between 1775 and 1785, a number of whom, however, afterwards came to Canada.

The Commission opened their investigation in October, under the following classification: -

0. Those who had rendered services to Great Britain.

1. Those who had borne arms against the revolution.

2. Uniform Loyalists.

3. Loyalists resident in Great Britain.

4. Those who took oaths of allegiance to the American States,

but afterward joined the British.

5. Those who armed with the Americans and later joined the British army or navy.

Claimants had to state specifically in writing the nature of their losses. Claims were first ordered to be presented by

March 25th, 1784, but the time was later extended till 1790. On the first date mentioned, 2,063 claims were presented,

representing a loss of about $35,000,000 in real and personal property. $11,770,000 in debts and $443,000 in incomes,

making a total of nearly $47,250,000. Compensation was not allowed for estates bought after the war, rents, incomes of

offices received during the rebellion, anticipated professional profits, losses in trade, labor, or by the British army, losses

through depreciated paper money, captures at sea and debts. By April, 1788, the Commissioners had examined 1,680

claims on which they allowed $9,448,000.

26. Mary Ferguson U.E.

Pioneer Life on the Bay of Quinte has her death at 59 years in 1867 which would put her birth at 1808. I think this is

The death register says Dec 12 1881 but is dated by the clerk as a half-year report dated on July 1 1881 ... so her death is

actually 1880 and entered incorrectly.

On the same page, Jesse Cole has died Dec 1881 and we KNOW he died in 1880 and that his wife was a widow in the

1881 census ... so Patience must have died in 1880. Aged 86 years.

29S. John Cole

Farmer. Went USA before 1818? Returned June 1834?
In censes, children give their origins as "German", so most probably John Cole is a NY Dutch "Cool" rather than a New

England "Cole". John in 1861 has birth in USA and is Church of England. John returned to live in USA for the period c1820-1834. Daughter Helen reports born in New York, so John & Patience still living there at time of her birth in 1833.

In 1812 when John married Patience Ferguson (daughter of Farrington Ferguson and Elizabeth Cole) the only Coles in

Hallowell and nearby were family of Daniel Cole UE, Elizabeth's dad. Farrington was living on lot 15, 1st concession

south of East Lake. Daniel was owner of lot 11, 2nd concession. (He never seemed to have lived there and he sold it in

1832) This lot was originally drawn by a Jacob Cole, "an old man" who returned to the USA. There is no record of John

Cole before his marriage so wherever he came from, he must have been known to the families of Daniel Cole and

Farrington Ferguson and so ended up in Hallowell to meet and marry Patience.

1851 Agricultural Census for lot 7 conc 5 south of East Lake at Point Petre shows 128 acres:

70 under cultivation, 29 under crops, 41 under pasture, 58 wild.

Cash value $2000. Cash value of machines and tools $40.

10 acres rye, 160 bushels. 10 acres peas, 150 bushels. 4 acres oats, 100 bushels. 8 acres buckwheat, 200 bushels. 3 acres

indian corn, 90 bushels. 1 acre potatoes, 100 bushels.

3 steers under 3 years. 3 cows. 4 horses over 3 years. 5 pigs (3 under 3 years) $200. Value of livestock $368. 250

pounds butter.

The 1851 Nominal or Personal census is missing.

In the Upper Canada Naturalization Registers 1828-50 RG 5, B 47, Vol 8, John Cole Sr. of Athol, dated the expiration of

seven years residence, June 1841, registered July 10 1848...looks like he returned to Canada June 1834.

By the way his children were named, I am assuming his mother was a GILLETT, possibly an Irene.

Gillet = Goelet in Dutch spelling?

One story says: "He had a brother and being dissatisfied with farming, went to USA sometime after 1812 to Sodus Pt or

Charlotte NY where they worked at barrel making or fishing. During war of 1812, he walked east to join the war and

when returned was barefooted and thin." (Mike Cole).
Another story had John Living in Oswego. (Oswego is on the south shore of Lake Ontario across from Gull Pond,

Prince Edward County. There is also another Oswego in the Town of Unionvale, Beekman, Dutchess County, NY.) This

would be back where Daniel Cool UE came from.


There was a Betsey Cole who was married to John's wife's sister's husband's brother, (Mary Ferguson married Rowland

Jackson. Willet Jackson married Betsey Cole) and she might be a sister.


There was a John Cole in Captain Frey's Company in Butlers Rangers.


In the Steven Conger J.P. papers there is a reference to "the keeping of J. Cole" Kept by Henry Bartlett from the 26th

April 1808 to 26th June following. Then taken by Richard Gardiner to keep 'til April session 1809.


County Information: Charlotte County is no longer in existence, its name having been changed to Washington County in

1784. A brief history of Charlotte County appears below and we hope you will find it useful in understanding the reason

for the name change. The Washington County page serves as the query location and information page for Charlotte

County, NY.

County History: Text taken from "History of Washington County, New York" by Crisfield Johnson, originally published

in 1878.

...on the 12th day of March 1772, a county was formed from Albany by the Legislature of New York, to which the name "Charlotte" was given, in honor of Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George the Third. This was the actual beginning of

the county of Washington; the organization having been retained from that time down, though both name and boundaries

have been changed.

"On the east of the Hudson, the south line of the new county began at the mouth of Stony creek; ran thence east three

miles and three-sixteenths; thence south to the Batten Kill; thence along that stream to the south line of Princetown; and

thence east to the west line of Cumberland county, which was the summit of the Green mountains. From this point to

Canada those mountains formed the eastern boundary of Charlotte county. From the mouth of Stony creek, the western

and southwestern line followed the windings of the Hudson up to the northwest corner of the present town of Luzerne, in

Warren county, ran thence west along the present north line of Saratoga county to its northwestern corner, and thence

northwardly along the present west line of Warren county extended to Canada. The north line of Charlotte was of course

the south line of Canada, or the forty-fifth parallel of north latitude.
"It will be seen that the present towns of Easton, Cambridge, Jackson, White Creek, and the southwest part of Greenwich,

remained in Albany county. On the other hand, Charlotte county contained all that part of the present State of Vermont

west of the Green mountains and north of the northwest corner of Jackson, the whole of the present counties of Warren,

Essex, and Clinton in this State, and the eastern part of Franklin county.

"Some of our readers may have thought we devoted more space to the troubles between New York and Vermont than

belonged to them in a strictly local history of Washington county. But, in fact, that imbroglio affected even the internal

affairs of Charlotte county, and in 1781 some very curious movements took place in several of the towns of that and

Albany counties, which have seldom or never been treated in national histories, but which might have had a serious

effect on the welfare of the whole country.
"As has been stated, the county of Charlotte and that part of Albany county now included in Washington were principally

settled by New Englanders, and by Scotch and others of foreign birth. The former had almost all adhered to the American

cause, which many (though by no means all) of the latter were friendly to the king. As the Americans were most of the

time in possession of the territory in question, the New Englanders were largely in the majority among the dominant class.

"These had generally sympathized more or less with their compatriots who were striving to set up an independent

government in Vermont. The Vermonters, too, although they had openly claimed only to the present east line of that

State, had kept up a kind of faint half-claim to the territory between that line and the Hudson, or even farther west, on the

ground that it had been included in Skene's new province of Ticonderoga, of which they deemed their State in some way

to be the political heir.
"...The intrigue for the annexation of the territory before mentioned was going forward at the same time. Not liking to

rest their claim on no higher authority than the supposed organization of the province of Ticonderoga, the Vermonters

also resorted to the secession doctrine. In April the Legislature of that State directed that a convention be held at

Cambridge the following month, composed of delegates elceted by the people of the various districts of Charlotte county

of that part of Albany county lying north of the south line of Vermont prolonged to the Hudson, which convention

should decide whether, and on what terms, those districts should be united to the State of Vermont.

"The long and deadly struggle of the Revolution, with its accompaniments of invasion, house-burning, and Indian

outrage, had naturally developed a very bitter feeling among the people, especially on the frontiers, against everything of

English name or origin. Even the name of Queen Charlotte was not agreeable to the inhabitants of Charlotte county,

whose farms had been devastated by the troops of Queen Charlotte's husband. Still more unpleasant was the name of

Tryon county, derived from the last British governor of New York, to the people of the Mohawk valley, where the work

of burning and massacre had been carried on year after year by Tories and Indians in British employ,.

"Accordingly, on the second day of April, 1784, the Legislature passed an act changing the two names just mentioned. It

was a model of brevity and precision, and, after the enacting clause, read as follows:

'From and after the passage of this act the county of Tryon shall be known by the name of Montgomery, and the county

of Charlotte by the name of Washington.'

"Thus the most honored appellation known to Americans was conferred upon this county. The name was not as common

then as now, and we believe this is the oldest 'Washington county' in the United States,--a venerable patriarch with nearly

forty namesakes among counties, besides an almost countless host of towns, villages, and post-offices."
The Charlotte County web page is a part of NYGenWeb which is a part of the The USGenWeb Project.


The town of Sodus was formed in January of 1789. It comprises the northeast corner of the old "District of Sodus". The

District of Sodus was made up of what are now the towns of Sodus, Lyons, Arcadia, Marion, Walworth, Ontario and

The northern part of Sodus is mainly level inclining toward Lake Ontario. In the southern part of the town, the surface is

considerably broken by ridges extending north to south, also known as drumlins. The division between these two areas is

known as "The Ridge". The Ridge is an elevation extending across Wayne County and beyond, from east to west. The

elevation of the ridge (from 150 feet to 188 feet), its situation with reference to the lake and the soil, have led geologists

to believe that it was the southern shore of Lake Ontario in the distant past.
The first documented settlement in the town of Sodus was in 1794 at Sodus Point. Capt. Charles Williamson, agent for

the Pultney Estates,, arrived in Sodus Point with a group of laborers, surveyors and builders to create a settlement.

Several houses, a tavern, a gristmill and a sawmill were built.
The first settler in what is now the village of Sodus was John Holcomb, who built a home there in 1809. The present

village of Sodus was first used as a location for a town meeting in 1815 and has remained the center of the town since

that time.
The town of Sodus is one of only two towns in Wayne County to ever experience a military battle within its borders. In

the morning of June 19, 1813, during the War of 1812, the British attacked Sodus Point. The British seized the stores in

the warehouses and burned the town. Only one building, a tavern, was spared. This building was spared because Asher

Warner, who was severely wounded during the battle, was carried there by British soldiers. He died several hours later.

One other man, Charles Terry, also died as a result of this attack. Terry, also wounded during the battle, made his way

home. It was thought that he would recover, but after getting up from his bed and walking to the door, he caught cold and

died a few days later.
A little known fact about the town of Sodus is that it is the birthplace of Arbor Day. In the year 1881, Edward C. Delano

of Sodus Center wrote an article that was published in the Wayne County Alliance titled "Shade Trees". Mr. Delano

urged that shade trees be planted in all the town's schoolyards. In that year he was elected Wayne County School

Commissioner and worked tirelessly for this cause. It was, however, 1888 before the New York State Legislature

proclaimed, officially, Arbor Day. The first Arbor Day circulars were sent out from Albany in the spring of 1889. Some

of the trees planted in Sodus on that first Arbor Day still stand.

31. Elizabeth Ferguson U.E.

I was looking through some old correspondance from John Aikens and came across this from an Orvil Dainard dated

April 1974 :

"I will try to explain something I have learned concerning the old Peirson Property.... the property with the large stone

house up from where he lives on the opposite side of the road was known now as the McKee Property composed land on

both sides of the rd that goes to the water edge of South Bay. I have learned from Gerald Ackerman -- he is a year or 2

older than I am -- that his late grandfather, Thomas Welbanks who owned adjoining property in same area, showed

Gerald where this grave was when he was a small boy. And it was down near the shore line at the bay....." (and rest is

cut off the bottom of the page...... Maybe Dr Helen would have John's stuff somewhere and we could sometime see it?)
A letter from Dr A L Danard (no date) "This farm is on north side of South Bay. Has a large square farm house with a

chimney at each end. Here he died after a fall while carrying a log for the grate fire. He slipped. The log fell on his

chest. He died shortly afterward in the year 1817. He intended visiting his people in Germany that year."
(The present stone house has a chimney at each end. PDC )
John's letter of October 1976 "Orvil says that the road dividing the lot used to run to the Bay shore (private road) and

that if Jacob ever built there, the buildings would be near the water, not on the present site -- I would judge the present

building about 1840-50"

31S. Andrew Dainard

Gravestone at South Bay seems to read death at Nov 19 1871 at 79 years.
Andrew owned Jacob Dainard's lot 21, then lot 24.

In October 1834 Andrew sold the Original lot #6, south shore South Bay granted to Jacob (1802 Patent) to John Rose &

Joseph Farrington.

Bought lot 24 from Andrew Minaker & wife Oct 10 1848. He sold this in July 1862 to William Lane. Then William

Lane sold it to Rachel Dainard the same day.

August 1864 Andrew & Rachel Dainard sell 3 acres to Charles Boles.

Dec 1864 Andrew Dainard sells 8 acres to Barney Duetta.

1866 Rachel L Dainard sells 3-4 acres to Permilla Boles, 20 acres to Susan Ellen Dainard, 20 acres to Miranda Dainard,

20 acres to Delia Ann Dainard & 20 acres to Emily Dainard & daughter Margaret L.
Oct 1868 Charles Boles & wife sell 3 acres to Eleanor Dainard.

May 1869, (some instrument) between Eleanor Dainard and Mary Eleanor Dainard.

This is all very confusing because Andrew's son who is also named Andrew appears to have also married a Rachel

(Zimmerman) ... so I don't know for sure who is who!!!! Because Permilia is d.o. Andrew D Jr & Mary Lear, I am

wondering if Rachel Zimmerman = Rachel Lane and if Andrew Sr never remarried after Elizabeth Ferguson :(


A Patent for the 200 acres of Lot 9 in the 14th Concession of Chatham Township, County of Kent was issued on October

27, 1831 to Elizabeth Danard. Andrew and Elizabeth Danard convey this property to Bernard J. Danard, on June 30,

1834. Bernard J. Danard does same to David S. Danard on June 24, 1870 for just the 100 acres of the West of the lot.

On September the 5th of 1872, David S. Deynard, takes out a mortgage from Thomas Bateman for $300. Thos. Bateman

was a neighbour on Lot 4 & 5, Concession 14, Chatham Twp. This is the first notation of a name change from Danard to


Bernard Danard also conveys to Alfred H. Danard the East of Lot 9, Concession 14, Chatham Twp., on December 10,
