  • Notes 
    • of Newtown, L. I.

      "He was," says Riker, "for many years a magistrate and filled the station with usefulness." On the capture of Long Island, in 1776, part of his house in Newtown was made the headquarters of British and Hessian Generals, and himself and family were subjected to many of the exactions and vexations which those who had rebel predelictions experienced from the invaders.
      (six children died in infancy.)
