The January/February, 2003, issue of the Daughters of American Revolution Newsletter has a little information on this couple. "At the time of the American Revolution, the area was called Cook House, and is today Deposit, a unique village split almost equally by the county lines of Broome and Delaware. The line is historically significant since it was set in the Fort Stanwix Treaty of 1763 as the boundary between white and Indian territories. The first permanent structure - built as a residence for the village's first married couple, Margaret Whitaker and Captain Conrad Edick, and known today as 'The Rookery' is shown above. The house became a tavern in 1799, catering to the tradesmen and travelers of the West Branch of the Delaware River and the trails of New York's Southern Tier. The lovingly restored inn today houses some of the best examples of early American decorative arts and furi=niture available as the home of Axtell Antiques."
