TIPED OVER A LOAD OF HAY HAD SAMMIE DRAW HIM OUT WITH OUR TEAM
AND SENT ON HIS WAY REJOICING, DID NOT GET A THANK YOU SIR. SAMMIE
BECAME QUITE DISSATISFIED ON ACCOUNT OF IT . THE WEATHER IS WARM
AND CLEAR WITH WARM AND BALMY SOUTH WIND AND SLEIGHING BEGINS
TO BE POOR.

MANAGEMENT.HE THINKS HE WILL WORK HIS MILK UP AT HOME THIS
SEASON. WE DISCUSSED THE PROPIETY OF FARMERS IN THIS COUNTRY
MAKING SHUGAR AND CANE TO THE CONCLUSION THAT IT IS BAD ECONOMY
TO NEGLECT SPRING WORK TO MAKE SHUGAR BESIDES IT EXPOSES ONES
HEALTH AND WEARES HIM OUT FOR BUT LITTLE PAY. THERE IS HAY AND
OTHER FODDER IN ABUNDANCE THIS YEAR . HAY IS WORTH FROM12.00 TO
15.00 PER TON AND PROSPECTS OF BEING CHEEPER. SOME THINK IT WILL BE
WORTH FROM 8.00 TO 10.00 PER TON. HAVE READ BUT LITTLE TODAY. READ

2. AUTOBIOGRAPY OF JOSEPH S DAVIE



AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH ON OUTLINE OF JOSEPH SAMUEL DAVIE AND
FAMILY WHO WAS BORN IN BOLIVAR, ALLEGANY COUNTY, NY FEB 29, 1824.
  MY FATHER MOVED TO THIS PLACE FROM ORANGE COUNTY WHERE HE
WAS RAISED BY ENGLISH PARENTS-HE MARRIED JANE SISSEM A YOUNG
DUTCH GIRL FROM DUCHESS COUNTY NY WHO HAD 18 BROTHERS AND
SISTERS AND ALL LIVING AND MARRIED AT THE SAME TIME. JANE BEING THE
FOURTH FROM THE OLDEST.SHE WAS A WOMAN OF UNUSUAL GOOD HEALTH
AND VIGOR. SHE HAD ALSO AN EXCEEDINGLY ACTIVE AND BRILLIANT
INTELLEC ALTHOUGH THE OPPORTUNITIES FOR DEVELOPING THOSE
FACULTIES WERE LIMITED-AFTER SHE MARRIED SHE ABANDONED THE DUCH
LANGUAGE AND BECAME QUITE FLUENT IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE.



SHE EXPERIENCED RELIGION AT THE AGE OF 20 YEARS OF AGE AND JOINED
THE METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH WHERE SHE REMAINED A FAITHFUL
AND ZEALOUS ADVOCATE OF CHRISTIANITY DURING THE REMAINDER OF
HER LIFE WHICH TERMINATED IN THE FULLEST TRIUMPH OF CHRISTIAN FAITH
IN THE 46 YEAR OF HER AGE AND NOW SINCE SHE IS DEAD WE CAN SEE
SOME OF THE MOST NOBLE TRAITS OF CHARACTER HUMANITY IS CAPABLE
OF POSSESSING. SHE DIED WITHOUT SITTING FOR A PORTRAIT OF ANY
DESCRIPTION THEREFORE I DESIRE IT HEARE TO GIVE A SORT OF
DESCRIPTION OF SOME OF THE MOST PROMINANT POINTS OF HER PERSON.



SHE WAS 5 FEET AND THREE INCHES HIGH AND USUALY WEIGHT 112 LBS AND
GOOD PROPORTION-HEAVY DARK BROWN STRAIT HAIR AND DARK BLUE
EYES AND BRUNETT COMPLECTION HAD A FINE CUT FACE THOUGH
FEATURES RATHER PROMINANT ESPECIALLY HER NOSE A LITTLE INCLINED
TO ROMAN AND A MOUTH A LITTLE UNPROPORTIANETLY LARGE WHICH IN
THIS CASE WAS A TRUTHFUL INDICATION OF AN EXCELLENT SINGER.



SHE HAD A MOLE A LITTLE BELOW THE CENTER AND FRONT OF HER LEFT
CHEEK AND

ALSO ONE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HER NECK WITH LONG HAIRS PROTRUDING
FROM EACH ONE. SHE HAD A FULL CHEST-AND A VOLUPTUOS BUST AND
PROMINANT BREASTS AND OR COMPLEAT PHYSICLE ORGANIZATION WITH A
NERVOUS TEMPERMENT WHICH RENDERED HER EXTREMELY VIGOUROUS
AND ACTIVE SO THAT SHE COULD NOT BE EXCELLED BY ANY OF HER SEX.
SHE DEVELOPED THESE FACULTIES AND ENNURED HERSELF TO THE ROUGH
WAY OF LIFE SO AS TO RENDER IT AN EASY TASK FOR HER TO RAKE AND
BIND TWO ACRES
OF HEAVY GRAIN IN ONE DAY OR TO KEEP UP WITH A GOOD CRADLER ALL
DAY BESIDES TAKING CARE OF A BABE AND DOING HER HOUSE WORK

MY FATHER SAMUEL DAVIE ENLISTED IN THE WAR OF 1812 AS A SUBSTITUTE
FOR A MAN THAT HAD BEEN CONSCRIPTED . HE WAS TWENTY ONE (21)
HEARS OF AGE WHEN HE ENLISTED HE SERVED THAT WAR FOUR MONTHS
AND TWENTY-EIGHT DAYS (4 MO. 28 DA). AT THE CLOSE OF THE WAR HE WAS
HONORABLY DISCHARGED AT QUEENSTOWN CANADA. ON HIS WAY HOME HE
CROSSED THE HEAD OF CAYUGA LAKE ON THE ICE WHICH WAS LESS THAN
ONE INCH THICK WICH YIELD TO HIS HEFT SO AS TO BEND UNDER HIS FEET.

HE ARRIVED AT HIS HOME IN CHERRY VALLEY, N.Y JUST IN TIME FOR THE
SECOND DAY OF ELECTIONS WHERE HE FIRST VOTED AT A STATE ELECTION.
THE FOLLOWING SPRING HE MARRIED AND COMMENCED FARMING FOR A
LIVING UNTIL HIS AGED MOTHER (WHOM HE HAD TO SUPPORT) DIED. IN 1821
HE MOVED HIS FAMILY WHICH CONSISTED OF A WIFE AND FOUR CHILDREN
TO BOLIVAR, ALLEGANY CO. N.Y WHICH WAS A VAST WILDERNESS. THERE
WERE BUT TOO FAMILIES IN THE VICINITY WHO CAME IN THE SPRING BEFORE
HE CAME.HE IMMEDIATELY LOCATED A FARM ON THE LITTLE GENESSEE

CREEK WHERE HE REMAINED UNTIL THREE YEARS BEFORE HIS DEATH AND
WHERE HE RAISED A FAMILY OR COMPLEATED A FAMILY OF TEN (10)
CHILDREN FIVE BOYS AND FIVE GIRLS ( 5 BOYS 5 GIRLS). THE FOLLOWING IS
A LIST OF THERE NAMES AND ALSO THE NAMES OF THEIR COMPANIONS AND
THE NUMBER OF THER CHILDREN COMMENSING WITH THE OLDEST AND
FOLLOWING THE REGULAR ORDER DOWN TO THE YOUNGEST UNTIL THIS
MATTER IS COMPILED.

BETSY DAVIE MARIED C.W COWLES HAD 6 CHILDREN

DANIEL D.T - -   AZUBAH BURDICK " 5       "

WILLIAM------ -- ANGENETT MONTROSE" 3

ALMIRA M.        JOHN JORDAN      4

JOSEPH           MERCIA CHAPIN    6

MARY C           ALPHEUS WILLIAMS 4

CHARLES B        CLARICY BARNES       4

MARTHA J         ROCKWELL WILLIAMS 7

CHESTER          LYDA FAREBANKS       4
THIS TABLE SHOWS AN AGREGATE OF FORTY TWO (42) GRANDCHILDREN
SOME OF WHOM MARIED AND ARE RAISING FAMILIES SO THAT IN
EIGHTEEN-HUNDRED AND SIXTY FIVE (1865) THERE WERE ONE HUNDRED AND
SIX (106) IN THE FAMILY INCLUDING THE GRANDCHILDREN AND
GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN OF THE FOUR GENERATIONS-BESIDES EMILY K.
WHO DIED AT THE AGE OF SIXTEEN (16) YEARS AND JAMES WHO DIED AT THE
AGE OF ELEVEN MONTHS WHO WERE THE TWO YOUNGEST OF THE FAMILY.



MY FATHER WAS POOR AS OPPORTUNITIES FOR SCHOOLING WAS
EXCEEDINGLY LIMITED SO THAT MY EDUCATION WAS SO LIMITED TO ONLY A
PARCIAL KNOWLEDGE OF SOME OF THE COMMON BRANCHES-THE TWO LAST
TERMS I ATTENDED BEING WORTH MORE TO ME THAN ALL THE THAN ALL
THE PREVIOUS TIMES I EVER ATTENDED.



IN 1842 I WENT TO WM P. COWLES TEACHER AND IN 43 WENT TO SHELDON
BUCKLEY-

THEN I DID NOT GO TO SCHOOL AGAIN UNTIL 1846. I WENT TO JAMES MARVIN
TWO TERMS IN 1846 AND 1847. WHICH TERMINATED MY GOING TO DISTRICT
SCHOOL. WHEN I CAME OF AGE (FEB 1846) THE FIRST STRIKE I MADE WAS TO
TAKE ELI LE SEURES SAWMILL TO RUN ON SHARES. I MADE WHAT WAS
CONSIDERED AT THAT TIME A GOOD STRIKE & RUN THE MILL FROM MARCH
1847 (4 MONTHS AND SOLD OUT MY INTEREST) AT A GAIN OF $300.00 WHICH I
MADE DURING THE 4 MONTHS AND IN JULY OF 1847-FOR A FARM OF 50 1\2
ACRES OF CYRUS COWLES WHICH IS SITUATED ON NW.W CORNER OF LOT
NO 62 BOLIVAR TOWNSHIP ETC FOR WHICH I PAID SIX HUNDRED AND FIFTY
DOLLARS ($650.00) I PAID THREE HUNDRED ($300.00( DOWN AND THE
BALANCE IN TWO YEARLY INSTALLMENTS.



THE FIRST YEAR I CUT ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS $100.00 WORTH HAY. IN
SEPTEMBER

1849 I WENT TO UTICA TO LEARN THE DAGUERROTYPE OF MY BROTHER DDT
DAVIE WHO

HAD JUST LOCATED A GALLERY IN THE DEVEREAUX BLOCK, UTICA, N.Y. I ...
ONE YEAR FOR THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE ART AND A COURSE OF CHEMICAL
LECTURES BY PROF. AVERY OF HAMILTON COLAGE AND ALSO MUSIC
LESSONS OF PROF. WRIGHT OF UTICA, N.Y. IT MAY SEEM STRANGE THAT I
SHOULD BE TAKING LECTURES AT HAMILTON COLLEGE AND AT THE SAME
TIME ON A SALLERY OF $300.00 A YEAR. THE FACT THAT I MADE THREE TRIPS
EACH WEEK TO CLINTON WHARE THE COL. IS LOCATED OUTSIDE OF
BUSINESS HOURS A DISTENCE OF 14 MILES AND ALWAYS ON FOOT EXCEPT
WHEN I ACCIDENTELY CAUGHT A RIDE WITH OTHER TRAVELERS. AT THE
EXPERATION OF THE TERM I ENGAGED ANOTHER FOR FOUR HUNDRED
$400.00 A YEAR.

IN OCT 1850 BROTHER DDT DAVIE LOCATED A BRANCH GALLERY IN THE
CAPITOL AT WASHINGTON D.C. WHARE HE REMAINED DURING THE WINTER
DURING WHICH TIME HE TOOK A 1\4 SIZE DAGUERREOTYPES OF ALL THE
THIRTHY FIRST (31)CONGRESS WHICH WAS THEN IN SESSION. I HAD BY THIS
TIME BECOME PROFICIANT IN THE ART SO AS TO ENABLE ME TO TAKE
CHARGE OF THE BUSINESS IN UTICA DURING THE ABSENCE OF

MY BR. SUCCESSFULLY AND SATISFACTORYLY. IN FEBRUARY 1850 I WAS
AWARDED A SILVER MEDDLE BY THE UTICA MECHANICS ASSOCIATION FOR
THE BEST DAGUEREOTYPE ON EXHIBITION AT THAR FAIR. I ALSO REC'D A
PREMIUM FROM THE N.Y.S FARE FOR THE BEST PICTURES WHICH WAS HELD
AT ROCHESTER 1850 (SEPT)

IN 1852 I WAS ELECTED SECRETARY AND TREASURER TO THE FIRST
DAGUERREOTYPE ASSOCIATION EVER ORGANIZED IN AMERICA WHICH WAS
CALLED THE UTICA DAGUERREAN ASSOCIATION, UTICA , N.Y. DEC 14, 1849. IN
MARCH 1851 BR DDT DAVIE RETURNED FROM WASHINGTON WITH HIS GRAND
EXHIBITION OF...LIGHT PRINTINGS OF THE 31ST CONGRESS AND WHEN
FOREN DIGNITARIESWHICH CREATED A PERFECT PANIC FOR PICTURES. WE
WERE DRIVEN WITH WORK TO THAT EXTENT THAT I DID NOT GO TO DINNER
THE WHOLE SUMMER BUT WOULD CONTENT MYSELF WITH A BRANDY PIE
WHICH MADE THINGS LIVELY SO LONG AS THE BRANDY EXTENDED ITS
INFLUENCE SO THAT BY THE FOLLOWING FALL

           ....FADED LINE..... I WAS (?)

PERMANENTLY CONTRACTED FOR THAT KIND OF STIMULANT AND I AT ONCE
MADE UP MY MIND TO QUIT IT. I ALSO MADE A CONTRACT WITH MYSELF TO
ABANDON ALL KINDS OF STIMULATES EXCEPT TOBACCO OR AT LEAST TO
SHUN EVERY KIND OF ALCOHOLIC DRINK. I FULFILLED THAT CONTRACT FOR
25 (?) YEARS SINCE THEN UP TO THE PRESENT TIME JANUARY 1879 I HAVE
INDULGED TO A VERY LIMITED EXTENT THOUGH I HAVE ALWAYS HAD A
RELISH FOR GOOD LIQUOR. IN NOV 1850 I WENT HOME TO BOLIVAR
ALLEGANY CO. ON A VISIT AND TO GET A WIFE. WAS MARRIED DEC 2 1850 BY
A P STETSON AT THE RESIDENCE OF AZUBAH CHAPIN OF BOLIVAR N.Y.
THREE DAYS LATER I RETURNED TO UTICA WHERE I RESUMED MY FORMER
BUSINESS WITH MY BR DDT DAVIE UNTIL JANUARY 1, 1851. I HIRED THE
GALLERY OF HIM FOR 1 YEAR FOR THE SUM OF $500.00 AND IN MAY 1851 I
COMMENSED HOUSEKEEPING IN NO 11 SPRING STREET UTICA, N.Y. MR IRA
GATES OUR LANDLORD OCCUPIED PART OF THE SAME HOUSE. THE GALLERY
ENTERPRISE PROVED BE A FINANCIAL SUCCESS WHICH ENABLED ME TO
ESTABLISH A GALLERY OF MY OWN. IN APRIL 1851 I ESTABLISHED THE
LARGEST AND BEST GALLERY WEST OF ALBANY, N.Y. IT WAS LOCATED IN
THE FRANKLIN BUILDINGS GENESEE ST SYRACUSE, N.Y. THIS PROVED A
SUCCESS UNTIL THE MIDDLE OF THE SUMMER. SICK WITH AGUE WHICH
FINALLY DEGENERATED INTO A BILLIOUS LIVING WHICH KEPT ME ON MY BED
FOR EIGHT MONTHS DURING WICH TIME MY OPPERATIONS RUN ME IN DEBT
FOR STOCK AND EXPENSE AND I HAD APPROPRIATED THE RECEIPT OF THE
BUSINESS TO THARE OWN USE TO THE EXTENT THAT IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE
FOR ME TO REVIVE THE BUSINESS AGAIN AND CONSEQUENTLY WAS UNDER
THE NECESSITY OF SELLING OUT. I PUT THE GALLERY ON THE MARKET AND
SOLD OUT IN A FEW DAYS AND AFTER PAYING UP MY DEBTS I HAD THREE
AND 88\100 DOLLARS LEFT OUT OF THE THREE THOUSAND WHICH I
INVESTED. WHILE I WAS THUS ENGAGED IN CLOSING OUT THIS SYRACUSE
GALLERY, I HAD AN OFFER FROM M. B. BRADY OF NEW YORK OF $16 PR.
WEEK TO SUPERINTEND HIS OPERATING DEPARTMENT AND MAKE HIS
CHEMICALS SO I IMMEDIATELY ENGAGED TO MR B. AFTER THREE WEEKS HE
ADVANCED MY WAGES TO $20 PER WEEK. I REMAINED WITH MR BRADY FOR
ONE YEAR AND SIX MONTHS AFTER WHICH I MOVED BACK TO BOLIVAR, N.Y.
WHERE I ENGAGED IN FARMING AND DAGGUERRE TYPING. ON LEAVING MR
BRADY HE REQUESTED ME TO GO INTO HIS STOCK-ROOM AND SELECT ME A
COUNTRY FIT OUT FOR TAKING PICTURTES AS HE WISH TO MAKE ME A
PRESENT OF THE SAME AND IN COMPLIANCE (I WENT_ AND SELECTED A 1\2
SIZE HARRISON CAMARA AND CORRESPONDING TRAPS TO THE AMOUNT OF
ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100.00) WHICH HE TRULY AND CHEERFULLY
PRESENTED TO ME AS A TOKEN OF HIS APPRECIATION OF MY EFFORTS
WHILE I WAS ENGAGED TO HIM AND AS A NATURAL CONSEQUENCE I BAD HIM
AND HIS MEN (TO WHOM I HAD BECOME VERY MUCH ATTACHED) A
RELUCTANT FAREWELL AND ON THE FOLLOWING DAY..I TOOK PASSAGE ON
THE N.Y AND ERIE RROAD FOR BOLIVAR NEW YORK MY NATIVE AND
COUNTRY HOME.



WELL HERE I AM ON A FARM WITHOUT A HOUSE TO LIVE IN WITHOUT TEAM,
TOOLS OR STOCK OR ANYTHING TO LIVE UPON. IN THE SPRING OF 1854 I
BUILT A HOUSE WITH A NICE SELLUR UNDER IT THE WHOLE SIZE 24 FEET
SQUARE WHICH WAS QUITE COMFORTABLE FOR OUR SMALL FAMILY. MY
FIRST EXPERIENCE IN COUNTRY OPERATING WAS AT THE BOLIVAR HOTEL
WHICH WAS KEPT AT THE TIME BY HIRAM BEARS. I HAD A GOOD RESULT THE
GREATEST PART OF THE SEASON. IN SEPTEMBER 1854 I TOOK A G WILLIAMS
IN AND LOCATED ANGELICA, N.Y. WHERE WE FOUND GOOD BUSINESS AND
REMAINED THREE WEEKS THEN MOVED TO BELFAST DURING THE COUNTY
FARE FROM BELFAST WE MOVED TO SHONGO, TOWN OF WILLING AND
FINALLY CLOSED UP OUR ENGAGEMENT OR PARTNERSHIP AT HONEYOY
FORKS AND WENT INTO WINTER QUARTERS. IN APRIL OF 1855 BOT THE REAR
PART OF D.A. NEWTONS STORE AND MOVED IT ACROSS THE STREET ON A. G.
WILLIAMS LOT AND FITTED IT UP WITH A NICE SIDE AND SKY LIGHT
COMBINED WHICH I KEPT IN SUCCESSFUL OPERATION FOR TWO YEARS
AFTER WHICH I SOLD THE BUILDING TO S D WILLIAMS WHO WORKED IT INTO
A WHISKY

RECTYFYING ESTABLISHMENT. WILLIAMS OCCUPIED THE BUILDING ONE
YEAR AND IN MAY 1856 I BOT THE BUILDING AGAIN AND RESUMED
PHOTOGRAPHING AGAIN WHICH I CONTINUED UNTIL THE JANUARY 10TH
1857. AGAIN ENTERED INTO PARTERNERSHIP WITH MY BR DDT DAVIE IN THE
DEVEREAUX BLOCK UTICA, N.Y. WE INTRODUCED LIFE SIZE PHOTOGRAPHS
COLORED IN OIL COLLORS. COLORED BY ALEXANDER FRANCORS AND HIS
FATHER. WE SOLD THE FIRST TO ALRIC HUBBELL FOR $100 JULY 12, 1857. AT
THE CLOSE OF THE YEAR I BOT OUT MY BRO INTEREST IN THE GALLERY FOR
FIFTEEN HUNDRED DOLLARS ($1500.00) I TOOK POSSESSION THE 10 OF
JANUARY 1858 AND CONTINUED THE BUSINESS UNTILL MAY 28 1859 WHEN I
SOLD OUT TO ONE OF MY PUPILS B W RAYMOND OF CEDARVILLE N.Y. AND
MOVED BACK ON THE FARM IN BOLIVAR, N.Y. WHARE I LOACTED
PERMINENTLY. I BOT 2 COWS A PAIR OF STEARES AND A FEW SHEEP TO
START IN WITH SO THAT AT THE END OF TWO YEARS I HAD ACCUMULATED A
NICE LITTLE STOCK AND A PAIR OF YOUNG HORSES. IN 1859 I CLEARED 25
ACRES OF LAND WHICH ENABLED ME TO INCREASE MY STOCK TO 25 HEAD
OF CATTLE AND 30 TO 50 HEAD OF SHEEP. IN 1860 I BUILT A CATTLE BARN 33
1\2 FEET BY 23 1\2 FEET AND IN THE MEANTIME I CONTINUED
PHOTOGRAPHING A PART OF THE TIME UNTIL SEPTEMBER 11, 1864 I
ENCLISTED IN THE ARMY AS A MEMBER OF THE FIRST BRIGADE BAND
HARDINGS DIVISION AND 21ST ARMY CORPSE UNDER THE DIRECTION OF C E
LESURE OF BOLIVAR, ALLEGANY CO N.Y. AFTER FILLING OUR QUOTA OF
500.O00 MEN (OR) TROOPS WE WENT TO ROCHESTER NY WHARE WE
ENLISTED FOR ONE YEAR OR DURING THE WAR TO FILL THE QUOTA FOR THE
TOWN OF RIGA MONROE CO. N.Y. FOR WHICH WE RECEIVED A BOUNTY OF
$500.00 FROM THE COUNTY OF MONROE AND $300.00 FROM THE TOWN OF
RIGA IN SAID COUNTY WHICH IN THE AGREGATE AMOUNTS TO $800.00. WE
WERE MUSTERED INTO SERVICE IN OCTOBER 1864 BUT WAS DETAINED IN
OUR STATE UNDER ARMS AT ELMIRA UNTIL A SHORT TIME BEFORE
ELECTIONS. WE WERE PERMITTED TO GO HOME ON A FURLO TO ELECTION
AFTER WHICH WE WERE SENT ON TH FORT RENO NEAR TENELLIA TOWN
SOME FOUR MILES FROM WASHINGTON D.C. WHARE WE WENT INTO
COMFORTABLE WINTER QUARTERS WHARE WE REMAINED UNTIL APRIL 1865
WE WERE MOVED TO FORT SLOCUM WHICH WAS ABOUT 6 MILES FROM FORT
RENO. WE REMAINED AT FORT SLOCUM UNTIL JULY 12 1865 WHEN WE
WERE DISCHARGED. I RETURNED HOME TO BOLIVAR JUNE 15 1865 AND
IMMEDIATELY RESUMED MY FORMER OPERATIONS FARMING AND
PHOTOGRAPHING. BROTHER DDT DAVIE

VISITED ME FROM NEW YORK THE LAST OF SEPTEMBER 1865 AND STAYED
SIX WEEKS

AND ASSISTED ME IN TAKING PICTURES AT MY OLD STAND IN BOLIVAR
WHARE I CONTINUED UNTIL THE NEXT SPRING WHEN I GAVE MOST OF MY
ATTENTION TO FARMING. PROCUCE WAS SO EXTREMELY HIGH THAT
FARMING WAS THE BEST BRANCH OF MY BUSINESS. DURING THE SUMMERS
OF 1866 AND 1867 I WORKED IN THE GALLERY BUT ONE DAY EACH WEEK (ON
FRIDAY) THE REMAINDER OF THE TIME I SPENT ON THE FARM. DURING THAT
TIME I TRAVELED TAKING PICTURES THROUGH THE COUNTRY WINTERS
MORE OR LESS UP TO 1875.

IN 1867 I SOLD MY GALLERY IN BOLIVAR VILLAGE AND BUILT AN ADDITION OR
UPRIGHT PART TO MY HOUSE AND ARRANGED THE UPPER PART INTO A SUIT
OF PHOTOGRAPHIC ROOMS WITH A SIDE AND SKY LIGHT COMBINED. IN
MARCH 1867 UNCLE DAVID CHAPIN CAME TO LIVE WITH ME, HE PROPOSED TO
HELP ME TO MONEY TO HELP BUILD MY HOUSE WITH ME. HE LET ME $100.00
FOR WHICH HE PROMISED TO BOARD OUT. HE STAYED UNTIL THE
FOLLOWING NOVEMBER WHEN HE LEFT WITHOUT SETTLING HIS BILL. HE
SOLD HIS ACCT. TO HIS SON CHAS. CHAPIN AND HASTENED TO THE FAR
WEST WHERE HE DIED TWO YEARS LATER. SO MUCH FOR HIS HONESTY.

IN OCT 1867 BR DDT DAVIE EXPLODED 4 LBS OF GUN.COTTON (ACCIDENTLY)
WHILE WEIGHING AND PACKING IN HIS LABORATORY IN NEW YORK. THIE
SHOCK AND BURNS IMPAIRED HIS RIGHT HAND SO AS TO RENDER HIM A
COMPOUND CRIPPLE- HIS LEFT HAND BEING CRIPPLED WHEN HE WAS A BOY
SO AS TO RENDER IT ENTIRELY USELESS. HEW WAS THAREFORE UNABLE TO
TAKE CARE OF HISELF SO HE CAME TO ME FOR CARE AND TREATMENT IN
NOV 1867 AND REMAINED WITH ME UNTIL JULY 1868 WHEN HIS RIGHT HAND
PARTIALLY RECOVERED SO AS TO ENABLE HIM TO DO A LITTLE WORK.

IN 1871 I TRADED FARMS WITH SAMUEL DAVIE MADE A CONTRACT TO PAY
HIM $2000.00 BOOT. I ARRANGED WITH MR RUSSEL OF BELMONT FOR MONEY
TO PAY THE BOOT- SAID ARRANGEMENT WAS TO GIVE A MORTGAGE ON THE
FARM TO SECURE THE PAYMENT. BUT MY GOOD FRIENDS C.B DAVIE AND
WILLIAM DAVIE OUT OF GEALOUSEY AND SELFISH MOTIVES SUCCEEDED IN
BREAKING UP THE TRADE. DURING THE SUMMER I ACQUIRED A
CONSIDERABLE EQUITY BY WAY OF IMPROVING THE FARM BY CLEARING
AND CUTTING ENORMOUS DITCHES ONE OF WHICH WAS 40 RODS IN LENGTH
FIVE FEET WIDE AND THREE TO FOUR FEET DEEP WITH A SUFFICIENT
AMOUNT OF WATER TO FLOAT A PLANK AND OTHER IMPROVEMENTS TO THE
AMOUNT OF FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS . AFTER SECURING THE CROPS IN THE
BARNS I MOVED BACK TO MY OLD FARM AND IN A SHORT TIME MY GOOD
FRIENDS (REFERRED TO ABOVE) INFLUENCED MY FATHER TO SELL MY
PRODUCE ON THE FARM I HAD BOT. I WAS THEREFORE COMPELLED TO SUE
MY FATHER IN THE COUNTY COURT IN ORDER TO GET A SETTLEMENT THE
RESULTS WAS I ACCEPTED A PROPOSITION TO TAKE THREE HUNDRED
DOLLARS INSTED OF FOUR HUNDRED WHICH REALLY BELONGED TO ME.



NOTE; THIS ACCOUNT WAS SUMMARIZED BY CARRIE COWLES, JOSEPHS
DAUGHTER, BUT THE ORIGINAL ALONG WITH HIS DIARY AND ACCOUNT BOOK
WAS FOUND IN THE ATTIC OF A HOUSE IN FRIENDSHIP, NY WHERE HIS
GRANDAUGHTER, BERTHA DAVIE TUTTLE LIVED UNTIL HER DEATH.
APPARENTLY HER FATHER , SAM DAVIE, ACQUIRED IT. JOSEPH WROTE THE
ABOVE IN 1879 ( AND SHRTLY AFTER ?) THE MENTIONED DIARY WAS A
FASCINATING ACCOUNT OF HIS FAMILY LIFE IN SPRING OF 1873 FRAUGHT
WITH THE WHOLE FAMILY SUFFERING BRONCHITIS FOLLOWWED BY
SCARLET FEVER FOR THE CHILDREN. AND JOSEPH "TAPING" 170 MAPLE
TREES IN A DAY WITH HOMEMADE WOODEN BUCKETS AND HIS EVER
HELPFUL SON "SAMMIE" AGE 17, HELPING. THIS WAS COPIED LONGHAND AS
THE INK WAS SO FADED TO MAKE MECHANICAL COPYING IMPOSSIBLE; TWO
PLACES ARE BLANK BY ONE LINE. SPELLING WAS DUPLICATED AS POSSIBLE
AND THOUGH SME DATES ARE QUESTIONABLE THEY CAN BE NOTED ON
COPIES. JOSEPH SAMUEL DAVIE DIED APRIL 21, 1899.

4. LETTER FROM CHESTER DAVIE TO WIFE LYDIA DURING CIVIL WAR



SEND MURSIS LETTER

DOWN TO HER.                         NOV 23 1864



CAMP OF DISTREBUTION FORT FEDRIL HILL BALTIMORE. DEAR WIFE AFTER
A LONG YEAR I HALVE HAD ONE MORE GOOD NIGHTS REST ON THE SOFT
SIDE OF A BOARD AFTER RIDING ALL NIGHT WITHOUT MY SLEPP. YOU HAD
BETTER BELIEVE A BOARD MADE A GOOD BED. ON OUR JOURNEY HERE WE
HAD NOTHING TO EAT BUT HARD TACK IT WAS SO HARD THAT I LOOSEND
TWO OF THE SOUNDIST TEETH THAT I HAD IN MY HEAD. HERE WE DRAW A
SMALL LOAF OF BREAD EVERY NOON THAT LAST US UNTIL THE NEXT DAY
NOON. WE GET SOME COFFEE TWISE A DAY AND A LITTLE PICS OF PORK,
BUT IT GOOD FOR A SOLDIER IT IS THE MOST BUTIFULL SENE HERE I EVER
SAW NOW WHILST I AM WRIGHTING I CAN LOOK OUT OF A WINDOW AND SEE
THE WHOLE OF THE SITY OF BALTIMORE AND WE CAN LOOK OUT ON THE
WATER AND SEE FORTY OR FIFTY VESELS ANY TIME A DAY. THIS FORT THAT
WE ARE IN NOW IS A BEUTIFULL ONE IT HAS THERE IS FORTY OR FIFTY
CANNONS AND NEARLY AS MANY ????????IT WOULD BATTER ANY REBLE
VESSIL SOME I GUESS TO GET IN HERE. TELL WILLIE I JUST LOOKED UP AND
SAW A COUPLE OF STEAM BOATS A RACING AND THEY RUN VERY FAST AS I
LOOK OUT OVER THE CITY I SEE WASHINGTONS MONUMENT FAR ABOVE
ANYTHING EVERY THING ELS. LYDIA THIS SENE IS GREATER THAN I CAN
EXPLAIN-IT IS A WONDERFULL SENE TO STAND HERE AND LOOK OUT OVER
THE WHOLE SITY AND THEN LOOK ON THE BAY AND SEE THE VESILS AND
STEAM BOATS BUT I CANT SPEND ANYMORE TIME HERE I WILL GIVE YOU THE
EXPLANATION OF IT WHEN I COME HOME. FIX YOUR SELFE TO SIT UP ALL
NIGHT TO HERE A BOUT THESE SENES WHEN I COME HOME. MY HEALTH IS
VERY GOOD FOR ME AT PRESANT EXECP I AM TROUBLED WITH THE
RHEUMATIS IN MY SIDE AND ARMS. I GUESS IT IS CAUSED BY MY CARRING
NAP SACK AND DRUM BUT PROBLY WONT LAST LONG . LYDIA I HALVE STUDE
TWO MEPSIS OF THOSE BERRYS AND WHEN I WAS EATING THEM I THOUGHT
OF THE HAND THAT PICK THEM. IN MY NAP SACK HERE IS A TEER NOW FOR
YOU. TELL WILLIAM IF HE IS DRAFTED TO GET A SUBSTATUTE IF IT COST HIM
A THOUSAND DOLLARS. IT LOOK A GOODECH LIKE WAR TO BE SUROUNDED
WITH GUNS. AT EACH GUN IS A LARGE PILE OF BALLS AND GRAPE SHOT. I
AM GOING TO KELP UP GOOD COURAGE AND BE A GOOD SOLDIER IN
BATTLE. IN BOTH ARMIES SIRVING THE ARMY AND THE LORD BUT WHEN THE
TIME COMES FOR ME TO COME HOME I GUESS I WILL REJOICE SOME. THE
REST OF THE BOYS ARE ALL WELL SOME OF THEM HAD THEIR COATS STOLE
BUT THEY FOUND THEM AGAIN. WE LEFT ELMIRA MONDAY NIGHT AT FORE
OCLOCK AND RODE ALL NIGHT , THE CAR WAS LOADED SO WE COULD NOT
FIND PLACE TO LAY OUR HEADS TO CATCH ANY SLEEP SO WE WERE VERY
TIRED WHEN WE ARIVED HERE YESTERDAY. WE HAD TO MARCH THROUGH
THE SITY. KERNAL TRACEY WAS GONE SO THEY SENT US OF UNDER GARD
AND WITH OUT ANY PAY . IT IS RATHER HARD TO BE OF WITH OUT A CENT OF
MONY TO EVEN BY A CRACKER OR A LITTLE SUMTHING TO EAT. WE CANT
BORROW OF EACH OTHER FOR WE ALL ALIKE YET I GUESS THERE WILL BE
SOME WAY PROVIDED TO KEEP US ALIVE. LYDIA IF YOU GET HARD UP FOR
MONEY TAKE MY OVERCOAT AND OTHER CLOTHS FOR WILLIE. KEEP HIM
WARM IF IT TAKES ALL THE CLOTHS I LEFT AT HOME FOR HE IS A VERY GOOD
BOY AND I WISH I COULD SEE HIM. BUT IF GOD SPAIRS MY LIFE 10 MONTHS
LONGER I EXPECT NOT ONLY TO SEE HIM BUT YOU ALL .WHAT A HAPPY TIME
THAT WILL BEE IN OUT LITTLE HOME WONT IT LYDIA.

                              C. DAVIE



THE ABOVE WAS FOUND IN THE ATTIC OF CHESTERS GREAT GRANDSON,
REED DAVIE OF LOGAN, OHIO . THE REFERENCE AT THE TOP IS FOR LYDIA TO
TAKE AN ENCLOSED LETTER TO MERCIA, JOSEPH DAVIE'S WIFE (JOSEPH
WAS CHESTERS BROTHER).

WILD IN WOODS. BUT OF THIS THEREWAS ABUNDANCE SUCH AS PLUMS,
CHERRIES, THOM APPLES MANDRICKS AND BERRYS OF ALL KINDS EXCEPT
THE STRAWBERRY. ??????????????????????? ABOUT THE
HOUSE.SOMETIME THE HUNGRY WOLF WOULD SNIFF AT THE CRACKS
BETWEEN THE LOGS OF THE CABIN AND SNARL AND GROWL BECAUSE HE
COULD NOT GET HIS COVETED VICTIM.MANY SLEEPLESS KNIGHT WE PASSED
ON THIS ACCOUNT. INDIANS OFTEN CAME TO THE CABIN FOR FOOD AND
WERE SOMETIMES VERY UGLY IF THEY FAILED TO GET SUCH AS THEY
ASKED. ON ONE OCCASION A UGLY SAVAGE OLD BRUTE THRETTENED TO
KILL MRS D IF SHE DID NOT GIVE HIM SUCH FOOD AS HE CALLED FOR BUT
THE BOY DDT HASTENED TO ALARM HIS FATHER WHO WAS NEAR BY A
CHOPPING . AND WITH HIS AS AXE IN HAND HE SPRANG TO THE CABIN AND
WITH ONE WELL AIMED BLOW HE MADE THE INDIAN FEEL A WHITE MANS
POWER. NONE BUT THOSE WHO HAVE CHANCED IT IN THE AS ?????CAN BE
MADE TO

#11. HISTORY



HISTORY OF ALLEGANY COUNTY PUBLISHED 1895

REGARDING DAVIE FAMILY...............
Samuel Davie a well known character came to Bolivar March 23, 1823 from
Unadilla, he having moved there with his parents from New Jersey, where he was
born Feb 14, 1794. He constructed a log house and returned for his family the
following June arriving with them in July 1823.He first settled on the farm now
owned by E R Kilbury across the creek, sometimes called the Wilbur farm. Some
claim there was already a log house built on the farm on which he settled, but the
writer is convinced such was not the case. On his return from Unadilla he brought
the first span of horses owned in Bolivar. When Mr Davie was first at Friendship
he bought the farm above mentioned of persons representing themselves to be
agents of the Philadelphia Land Co. But about 5 years afterward the true agents of
the Company satisfied Mr Davie that he had been imposed upon and that his title
was worthless. Mr Davie had to part with his span of horses as part payment of
the second purchase. The true agents however refused to take more than the
original price of the land, $3.00 per acre. Mr Davie considered this a generous act
as the land had considerably advanced by reason of settlers coming in and the
fact that he had made great improvements upon his farm. He died at the
residence of A G Williams in Bolivar, April 20, 1875. William Davie, the eldest son
was born in Cherry Valley in 1821, came to Bolivar in 1823. Samuel Davie wifes
maiden name was Sisson and she had three sisters; Sally, who married James
Davie; Sophia, who so far as was known never married; and Eva who married
John Mead Sr. Samuel Davie and his wife were parents of eleven children; Betsy,
who married Charles Cowles; Tompkins, who married Azubah Burdick; William,
who married Angenette Montrose; Joseph, who married Mercia Chapin; Mary C ,
who married A G Williams; Almira, who married John J Jordan; Charles, who
married Clarissa Barnes;]Chester, who married Lydia Fairbanks; Martha J, who
married Rockwell Williams; Emily who died at age 15 yrs & James who died at
about 1 yr, making a family of nine children, 5 boys and 4 girls, who grew to
manhood and womanhood rearing families of from three to ten children. At this
date nearly everyone of their grandchildren are married as well as many of their
great-grandchildren. Therefore to write a comprehensive history of the Davie
family as founded by Samuel Davie and wife here in Bolivar would require more
space than we are permitted and tax your indulgence as the families of the Davie,
Williams, Jordan, Mead and Cowles are numerous indeed.It may however be of
some interest to recall some of the countless interesting incidents in the lives of
Samuel and Jane Davie who came to Bolivar as stated in 1923 and out of the
virgin forest created a home for and reared their family of ten children. He with
his own hands felled the trees while she with hers ministered to her healthy
brood, yet between mending , cooking, and teaching she found time to add to
their income by spinning, weaving and knitting for others and for them was a
mid-wife when neighbors wives bore children, and was noted for her generosity
and charity.Devoted to her church work and acts of kindness that those who are
living today that knew her are eager to testify to. It is also a matter of historythat
Samuel Davie entered into a compact with his brother-in-law, John Mead,that
during the War of 1812 one of them at least should be constantly in the service of
his country, and the one at home should care for the family of the absent one. And
this agreement was faithfully lived up to. In 1863 when our Civil War got into such
a condition that President Lincoln issued a call for three hundred thousand more
men, Samuel Davie then 69 years old,walked from his home in Bolivar to Cuba to
enlist, and accepted, actually mustered into service as under 45 yrs of age, that
being the age limit the government would accept men for service. On hearing of
this enlistment three of his sons, William, Joseph and Chester hastened to Cuba
to secure his discharge, stopping on the way at Clarksville for John Jordan wheo
they took with them. At first the officers refused to release him, but upon being
convinced that his age was against him they reluctantly released him. the
commanding officer remarking when he did so; "I would rather have parted with
any three men in my command than to part with this rugged, determined old
hero". It was always a thorn in the old mans side to think they would not let him
go.It would be interesting to any person, old or young to hear this story told by
his son Chester Davie, who by the way is the only livingmember of this noted
family, all of which except two, William and Martha J are buried in the Bolivar
Cemetery.



EXCERPTS FROM; " THE TOWN OF BOLIVAR " AS WRITTEN IN THE "HISTORY
OF ALLEGANY COUNTY", NEW YORK, 1895



Another well remembered early settler was Samuel Davie who was born in New
Jersey, Feb 14, 1794. His parents moved to Otsego county when he was quite
young. He was a soldier in the War of 1812, serving four months and twenty-eight
days, and mustered out at Queenstown at the close of the War. Having bought a
piece of land in Bolivar (part of lot number 62) on which was a small house of logs
but no clearing, he came out in March 1823, cleared a small piece and made a
garden and planted some corn. About the first of June he started for Otsego
County for his family and returned within a month bringing with him a team of
horses which was the first brought to that section. During the late war he enlisted
as a soldier and was accepted of his representation that he was only forty-four
years of age. When told that he appeared much older he offered to prove his
youthfulness by a trial of strength with the "best man in the crowd". Through the
influence of his son he was persuaded to return home and abandon his warlike
project. He died April 20, 1875. Charles Cowles, came from Stueben county and
James Davie from Otsego county, settled in the town in 1833, the latter on lot
number 54.The sale of skins and venision paid for most of the necessaries of life
which the settlers obtained of the merchants. Soon after his settlement in the
town James Davie found himself in straitened circumstances; but being an
expert hunter he killed enought deer to make a load, which he hauled to Cuba and
traded for the supplies of various kinds.
The Bolivar Cemetery; The grounds selected and purchased for cemetery
purposes consist of between two and three acres of the land of Eli and Cyrus E
Lesuer and James Davie, immediately surrounding the old cemetery, which
included about 3\4 of an acre, and are pleasantly located about a half mile south
of Bolivar Village on the road to Ceres and can be easily enlarged as necessity
may require.C B Davie was born in Bolivar in 1830 and married in 1855 to Clarissa
Barnes of the same town. He is a lumberman and farmer; has been town auditor
two yrs, inspector of elections five yrs and excise commissioner one yr.



Sacrificed for the Union: L Sanford Davie, died at Fairfax Courthouse.



Alpheus G Williams was born in Watertown, Jefferson county, NY Nov 29, 1820.
He came to Angelica, Allegany county in 1844 and first came to Bolivar in 1846.
His first business in Allegany county was that of Clerk

in Hartshorns Hotel in Angelica. He kept a Hotel at Friendship two years; he was
afterwards engaged in the same business in Rushford three years. He was
proprietor of the hotel at Bolivar from 1852 to 1856. He was deputy

sheriff under Gamaliel Benjamin from 1852 to 1855 and also under S N Bennett .
He was married Sept 27 1847 to Miss Mary Davie, daughter of Samuel Davie one of
the early settlers of Bolivar. She died March 23, 1857. He afterwards married Miss
Mary J Davie, a daughter of James Davie.
