From The History of Delaware County
W.W. MUNSELL 1797-1880
THE TOWN OF TOMPKINS
Trout Creek, or Teedville
"This is a post-office hamlet on the Gannuissy creek, about nine miles northeast by north from Cannonsville. John Teed and brother were its first settlers. Lebbeus Teed, son of John, is a prominent and substantial farmer and lumberman.
There is a Baptist church with a church edifice in the place. The church was organized in 1852. Being small in numbers and financial ability, the members have been unable to sustain regular preaching for much of the time. The present number of members, according to the last report, is thirty-four.
Among the early settlers of this valley were: Peter and Jacob Huyck, Joseph Crawford, John Ostram, Jacobus Bradt, Oliver Hale, Joseph Adair, John Magee, John Wallers,--Jackson, --Bullock and Joseph Cannon, all respectable farmers, who raised families."
I am a descendant of Oliver HALE (mentioned above) and of James Bradt/Bratt who I believe is the son of Jacobus. Is anyone researching this Bradt/Bratt line?
