1) Addison - First Settlement - pages 92,93,94,95,96,97

"The first settlement was made by SAMUEL RICE in 1791.

Of those who soon followed Mr. Rice in the settlement of Addison

were REUBEN AND LEMUEL SEARLES, OLIVER MILLER,

GEORGE GOODHUE, who had previously settled near Painted Post;

JOHN MARTIN, JONATHAN TRACY, ABLE WHITE, ISAAC AND

JAMES MARTIN, JAMES BENHAM, ASAHEL STILES, SILAS MOREY,

ELISHA GILBERT, LEMUEL STILES, WILLIAM WOMBOUGH

and MARTIN YOUNG.

The latter came into the country with COL. ARTHUR ERWIN.

He subsequently settled on the road to Rathboneville,

just within the present western boundary line of the town of Addison.

He moved to Minnesota, where he died not many years since,

having almost attained the age of one hundred years.

LEMUEL SEARLES was the next resident below Mr. Young.

He occupied the GEORGE UNDERWOOD farm.

JOHN MARTIN, with a numerous family, lived next below;

then some years later JAMES BALDWIN settled on the next farm east,

and at the B. JENNING'S place lived JAMES JONES,

who built the hotel at Cameron about 1823.

2) ASAHEL STILES built a log house

near the present site of the Erie depot,

and there are apple trees still standing upon the bank

in rear of that depot that Mr. Stiles set out.

3) His mother, a very aged woman, came here with the

family.

On one occasion she was left at home alone,

and upon the return of the family

she informed them that "a big black dog" had been

sitting for some time on the ice in the river.

Younger members of the family, with better eyesight than

she possessed,soon discovered that what she had mistaken

for a dog was in reality a bear.

"Uncle" SAMUEL RICE, who was calling at the Stiles house

at the time,took up a club and approaching the bear, struck

him. Bruin resented such a salute, and, with a deep growl,

turned on his assailant.

Mr. Rice retreated as fast as he could, which was not

very rapidas he had to adopt a peculiar sliding gait in order

to avoidraising his heels

too near the snout of the infuriated beast, which was

close upon him.

Mr. Stiles at this juncture came to the rescue

with a heavy hoe, such as in those days were made by the

local blacksmiths,

and striking the bear a stunning blow upon the head,

felled him, after which he was killed and dressed.

4) The Stiles family, with some others of the first settlers,

used to attend church in Canandaigua, eighty miles distant."

NATHANIEL COOKE/COOKE

10th Great Grandfather of Sarah Elizabeth Rose


A First Settler of Windsor, Suffield, and Wehtersfield, CT.

1) Admitted to Windsor church 6/22/1652.

2) Freeman 5/16/1650.

3) Had 40 acres alloted to him in Suffield 1672.

4) Believed to be the son of Aaron Cooke

and with him on the Mary and John

and in Dorchester in 1630.

This is based on the writings of Elihu Yale

founder of Yale college,

and is also noted in Styles

History of Ancient Windsor (1893).

5) An alternate ancestry is suggested in

"Search for the Passengers of the Mary and John

1630 - Volume 19.

This suggests Nathaniel was born in Crewkerne,

Dorset on March 20, 1621 to John Cooke, Jr.

and Rachael Daubney

(from Snails Crast, Netherbury, Dorset).

They speculate he was related to the Rev. John Warham

through his mother's family (Agnes Hooper - alias Cooke).

Lydia Vore and her parents were also from Crewkerne

and came over in 1634.

Since there is no record of Nathaniel at Dorchester

or Bridport with Aaron, it seems more likely that

Nathaniel was not his son by some unrecorded earlier

marriage and that he knew his future wife

and her family while still in England.

6) Stiles indicates that Nathaniel and his family

owned two of the slaves who are buried at Windsor.
