About seven years later he removed to Carroll, Chautauqua county, where he resided ten years and kept hotel. Returning to Randolph he followed farming until his death March 3, 1866, his wife dying the same day, both being buried in the same coffin.

History of Pike County - Chapter VI - (Westfall Township)

WESTFALL TOWNSHIP

WESTFALL TOWNSHIP was set off from Mil­ford January 31, 1839. It is named in honor of the Westfall family, who were among the pioneer settlers within its limits. Westfall is the eastern township of Pike County, and is inclosed on the northeast and southeast by the Delaware River, which makes a decided bend at Carpenter's Point, changing its general course from southeast to southwest. New York State lies northeast across the Delaware, and New Jersey bounds it on the southeast, Milford township borders it on the southwest and Sho­hola on the northwest. Across the Delaware, below Port Jervis, stands the Tri-States Rock, at the point of a rocky peninsula, lying between the Delaware and the Neversink. This rock is the corner of the three States, New York, Penn­sylvania and New Jersey. The distance from Matamoras, situated on the Delaware just across from Port Jervis, to Milford, is seven miles, which is traveled by stage-coaches. The valley from Matamoras varies from a mile to one-fourth of a mile in width, having a high bluff on the right, over which the little Butter­milk Falls descends during a part of the year. The valley up the Delaware from Matamoras is narrow, and traversed by the Erie Railway from Saw-Mill Rift to Pond Eddy. The in­terior of the township is a rocky pine barren and generally uncultivated.

The pioneer history of Westfall township dates from the Revolution, and like most of the old settlements along the Delaware, is largely lost or preserved only as a tradition. The Quicks, De Witts, Westfalls, Van Akens and Rosecrances were the pioneers of Westfall town­ship and the Middaghs and Carpenters were there at an early day. According to ex-Lieu­tenant-Governor Bross, who is a descendant of the Quicks, on his mother's side, Thomas Quick came from Holland and settled near Mil­ford, Pa., in 1730-35. He was the father of Tom Quick, the Indian killer, and James Quick. Thomas Quick had a grist-mill on the Vande­mark before the Revolution, in Milford town­ship. Peter Quick, probably a brother of his, located in Westfall township and built a grist-­mill and saw-mill either just before or after the Revolution.* He took up a large tract of land in the vicinity of Quicktown. His children were Jacob; John; Margaret, wife of Dr. Fran­cis Al. Smith, who lived for some time on part of the old Quick property; Elias Quick, who emigrated to the West; Cornelius, who lived in Milford; and Roger, who resided in New Jer­sey; Jane married Cyrus Jackson and Maria became Mrs. Cornelius Cox.

Of these sons, Jacob Quick, Esq., an enter­prising man, had a grist-mill and saw-mill on Quick Creek, at Quicktown, a blacksmith shop and lived in a large house. Of his children, John married Maria Middagh and resided on part of his father's property. His widow, aged eighty-eight years, still lives on the property with her son, Charles Quick. She is a lifetime resident in this vicinity and remembers many anecdotes of the pioneers. She says her step­father related that on one occasion eighteen persons were in a flat-boat and the Indians shot every one that handled the oars. Finally a negress took the oars and was likewise shot in the mouth and killed. All were slain with the exception of one child, who was taken prisoner and did not escape until he was nineteen years of age. (This same story has come to the writer in a little different form from other sources.) This happened down on the Delaware, opposite Lehman.

"Sally Decker was taken prisoner by the Indians on the place now occupied by Soferyne Vannoy, where the old orchard was located. She came over with her brother to milk a cow, bearing with her a gun, for she could shoot. The Indians secured her, however, and en­camped near by for the night. Her Indian captor was very unkind, but soon sold her to an old Indian, who was good to her. He one day asked her if she would like to return home. She said she would, but she did not expect to find any of her family alive. He took her to Philadelphia and sold her to a person who pur­chased her ransom. He dispatched a man on horseback to her father to inform him of his daughter's liberation. He sent a span of horses to bring her back, and, on her arrival, all the neighbors gathered to see her. They call the locality Saunches Clofee or Sally's Hollow, to this day. It is just below Quicktown." Mrs. Quick says "it was a very common thing to see people dressed in buckskin clothes. They used wooden trenchers, and later pewter plates." Gen. Samuel Seely had a store many years ago near the present Klaer mill. Mrs. Quick remarks, "I have heard my grandmother tell about buying coarse earthenware dishes there. His store and the one Benjamin Carpenter started at Carpenter's Point were the first stores in all this region of country, as I have heard from my grandmother. I never saw but one light wagon in my life when I was young, and that was owned by Dick Westbrook. He was lame, and, being wealthy, he had a two-wheeled light wagon and a negro to wait on him. About sixty years ago Courtright Middagh bought a light wagon with wooden springs. His lines were ropes."

John B. Quick, the second son of Peter Quick, married one of Jacobus Rosecrans' daughters, and remained on the homestead. He was a farmer, lumberman, and first started the "Half-Way House," and lived to be eighty-five years of age. He was an enterprising man. In 1824 he purchased twelve hundred acres of anthracite coal lands at Hyde Park, in Luzerne County, Pa. He and others got a charter for a railroad from Milford to the Lackawanna Valley, but the representative from Pike wished the road to go lower down, and, by inserting words to that effect in the charter, killed the road.** "He burned the first anthracite coal used in New York, at the Orange County Hotel, on Cortlandt Street." He took Gilbert L. Thompson into partnership with him in the coal business, afterward sold a three-fourths interest to other patties, and a company was formed which undertook to mine coal, but they did not, however, succeed. The company agreed to give Quick fifteen thousand dollars for the three-fourths interest, but only paid him six thousand dollars. Quick held possession until 1841, when an ejectment suit was brought against Jacob R. Quick, one of John B. Quick's sons. Peter A.L. Quick, another son, who also had an interest, was not notified, and the project failed. Peter A.L. Quick took up the matter, which had been pending in the courts for thirty years. On carrying it to the Supreme Court, Judge Alfred Hand, attorney for the Susquehanna and Wyoming Valley Railroad Company, settled with him for forty thousand dollars. This arrangement left Quick's lawyers unpaid, as they were to have a certain amount providing they were successful with the suit. Quick claimed that he took ten thousand dollars less than he otherwise should have done, with the understanding that Hand should pay them. His attorneys brought suit against him, and after three years' litigation, Quick com­promised the matter. John B. Quick's sons are Martin C. Quick, James R. Quick and Peter A.L. Quick, who now owns the Newman property in Delaware township.

Jacob De Witt before the Revolution owned the land along the Delaware River from below Milford to the Half-Way House. He had a log fort on the Simeon Cuddeback farm, and remained there during the conflict, until taken prisoner by the Indians and carried to Canada. He was kept there for three years. Cornelius, his son, settled near the Half-Way House, where he cultivated a large farm. He dressed in buckskin throughout, and was dubbed "Buckeyhout," which means "buckskin" in Dutch. The De Witts were friendly with the Indians and great hunters. His son, Lodowick De Witt, owned about one thousand acres of land. Cornelius, one of his sons, lives on the hills in Westfall, and Jacob P. De Witt resides near the "Half-Way House."

Jacobus Van Aken and Herman Rosen Krantz,*** father of Jacobus Rosencrans, settled before the Revolution where Rosetown now is, then known as Upper Smithfield. Jacobus Van Aken owned a good farm on the Delaware flats. His son, Garret Van Aken, was born there in 1770. He was a militia captain and generally called Captain Van Aken. John Van Aken, another son, moved to Ontario, N.Y. Of Garret's children, Margaret was the wife of Levi Middagh, and Sally married John W. Middagh. Benjamin Cole Van Aken lived on part of the homestead and Frederick A. Rose purchased a portion of it. Benja­min C. had a family of nine children, of whom William B. Van Aken was track supervisor on the Erie Railroad for twelve years, when he removed to Wisconsin and died there. John M. Van Aken lives at Matamoras. He has been treasurer of Pike County, and is now col­lector of internal revenue for Wayne, Pike and Monroe Counties.

Herman Rosen Kranz's name appears on a petition for a township in what afterwards became Upper Smithfield in 1750. His son, Jacobus Rosencrans, was probably born in what is now Westfall township, and lived neighbor to old Jacobus Van Aken, Esq., and his son Garret. He owned a large farm near the Delaware, now the property of the Roses. His farm was divided among his five daughters, reserving a piece in the centre for himself. His daughters were Betsey, who married Manual Brink and lived at Chocopee; Lena, married Matyne Cole, who resided in the Clove, N.J. (Judge Martin V. Cole, of Montague, is a grandson); Catharine, married to Daniel Decker, her first husband, who reared a family of children. Crissie Bull, her second husband, lived on part of the Rosencrans farm. They had two sons and two daughters. The first son was named James, in honor of his grandfather, and in accordance with the plan of all the sisters to name one child James. As a result, they were each presented with a yoke of oxen. James Bull died in youth, and the next son, who was named Rosencrans Bull, married Jennie Westfall. They resided on a farm in Milford township until recently, when, on leaving it in charge of his son, he moved to Milford, his present residence. Hannah Bull was the wife of Colonel Henry S. Mott, of Milford, and Maria Bull, another daughter of Crissie Bull's, married Eli Van Inwegen, of Port Jervis. Annchy Rosencrans was the wife of Saunders Ennis, of New Jersey, and Polly was the wife of John B. Quick.

Simon Westfall located at Carpenter's Point in 1755, and was among the first settlers. He built a stone house or fort, and had also a grist­-mill on the Clove Brook. It was an import­ant position and the Indians tried many times to surprise the place. This family were first attacked by Brandt in 1779. Simon Westfall moved his household back farther in New Jersey and laid up on the hills with three loaded guns to watch his buildings. He saw the Indians firing his barn. Firing his guns at them, he fled, but they succeeded in burning all his buildings. His marriage is kept in the records of the old Dutch Reformed Church, among those whose banns had been published, as follows:

"1743, March 13. Simon Westfael,(4*) young man, born in Dutchess County, dwelling in Smithfield in Bucks County, to Jannete West­broeck, young woman, born at Mormel, dwelling at Menissinck, married the 17th day of April, by Peter Kuyckendal, justice of the peace."

This shows that he was a resident of Penn­sylvania in 1743, but he appears to have built across the river at Carpenter's Point in 1755. He died 1805, aged eighty-seven. He had five children, of whom Simeon was the only one who settled in Pike County. He built a stone house after the Revolution on the Delaware River at a point called Sims Clip, where there was formerly a reef of rocks in the river at that place, about opposite the Tri-States Rock. He was a farmer and also kept a public-house. His wife, Sally Cole, was a daughter of Benja­min Cole, of Deckertown. She buried her work-basket in the corn-field when the Westfall family left their homes on account of the Indians. After they returned she dug up the basket, which contained, among other things, a pair of shears that were in great demand in the neighborhood, as they were the only pair in the vicinity. She lived to be ninety-five years old, and often talked with her descendants about the Indian depredations. Their children were Simon, who settled in Deerpark (now Port Jervis), and kept a tavern, and David Westfall, who owned a farm of about two hundred acres where Matarnoras now stands. His house stood on a knoll in "Old Matamoras," back from the Delaware about three hundred and fifty yards. He was a farmer and lumberman. He married Jemima, a daughter of Captain Cuddeback, of Deerpark. His children were Abram, Simeon, Cornelius, Wilhelmus and Jacob, sons, and the daughters Esther, who moved West, and Sally, wife of James Bennet, of Carpenter's Point. She is now eighty-four years of age, a clear-headed, well-preserved old lady, who is familiar with the Westfall pedigree from old Simon Westfall to the present generation. Simon Westfall (2d) was a farmer and blacksmith. He lived and died at Matamoras, August 22, 1878, aged eighty-six. His wife was Sarah, daughter of Jacob Cuddeback. Their children were Abram, Sarah J. (wife. of James W. Quick), Peter G. (who was killed in Canada while serv­ing as fireman). Simeon C. Westfall inherited the property where the village of Matamoras now stands, and where he at present resides.

Cornelius Westfall married Huldah Cudde­back, and lived on the Delaware River in Westfall township. He was justice of the peace, and died at the age of eighty-three. His children were Jemima (wife of R.C. Bull, of Milford), Elizabeth (wife of P.G. Canfield, who lives in Sullivan County), Sarah (unmarried). Jacob C. Westfall, the only son, lived on the homestead and took his father's place as justice of the peace. George Westfall, a son of old Simeon, Sr., lived on the home­stead for many years, and later sold to Jacob Cuddeback, when he removed to the West.
