in 1828, he gave a mortgage to secure to each of his children
$50. They lived just north of where the " frozen well " was
since dug, on the west side of Otter Creek, in the village.
This frozen well was dug in the loose gravel. It is about forty feet
deep. The last few feet of it, when dug, was through frozen
earth ; and soon after it was stoned up a rim of ice formed on
the stones just above the water, which is said to have remained
ever since. When this well was visited, in Sept. 1861, it had
been dug some ten years. As a lighted 'candle was let down by
a boy, who came out of the nearest house, through this rim
of ice about thirty feet from the top of the well, the ice was
plainly seen. It was about 15 inches thick, leaving an opening
for the bucket of about 15 inches, to the water, which, on being
drawn up, tasted as cold as, but more sparkling than, iced water,
The water in the well has stood about five feet deep.
