He made his home in Ponegansett, Bristol Co., Mass., and
engaged in whale fishery previous to the Revolution, and in
July, 1776, he sold his ship and cargo in the Dutch West Indies
to avoid capture by the British ship-of-war Potnona, cruising in
those waters. He was subsequently captured by a British
cruiser, and confined in one of the British ships in the harbor
of New York. After suffering in those British hulks, he was
released in 1778 or 1779, and returned to Ponegansett. Thence
he emigrated to Easton, Washington Co., N. Y., with his
wife and one or two children about 1780. He resided there
about nine years, then removed to Cambridge, same county,
and settled on a farm near Buskirk's Bridge. Here he
acquired considerable property, reared a family of seven chil-
dren, and died in his sixty-third year.

He is described as robust and strong in form, with a dignified
presence, and the manners of a gentleman of the old school.
He was kind in his family relations, esteemed as a neighbor
and friend, diligent and prosperous in business affairs, but
owing to some losses arising from certain purchases of land,
he became disheartened and subject to settled melancholy,
which finally resulted in suicide. He and his wife joined the
Quakers and were for many years members of that society.

Matthew Cornell and his wife, Elizabeth, were buried in
the Quaker burying ground, Easton, Washington Co., X. Y.

She, or her mother Rebecca, married for her second husband,
Joseph Rotch of Dartmouth, Mass., 12.29, 1768. This Joseph
was largely interested in whale oil, probably then the princi-
pal business in Dartmouth. He bought land of Joseph
Russell, whose daughter Mary Russell married Peleg Cornell,

113, 1739-

Her first husband, Clement Biddle, was a colonel in the
Revolutionary army. After sixty years absence from her
Newport home, she returned for a visit there, and in a letter
to a friend gives a description of her old home. As this letter,
dated 1824, and furnished the writer by one of her descendants,
throws some light on the history of the family and their
prosperity in those times, I have thought best to insert it
here, though there are perhaps some errors in it:

"After an absence of sixty years I found the Mansion house (near New-
port, R. I.), in precisely the same state that I left it. It is situated on the
east side of the Island, six miles from the town of Newport. The farm
connected with it contained 120 acres, besides two other farms, containing
180 acres each, which were owned by my father's brothers, William Cornell
and George Cornell. We also visited another farm belonging to my father
on the west side of the Island, containing the same number of acres. 1
went to see my father's town residence in Newport, a very good house in
Thames street, opposite the Liberty Tree, and another dwelling house
which he leased and resided in many years, opposite the Parade Grounds
near the State house. At the early age of fifteen years my father, Gideon
Cornell, at the time of his father's death (Thomas Cornell who died at the
age of 55), came into the possession of a considerable landed estate, the
farms and house above mentioned, and 15,000 Spanish milled dollars in
cash, besides a very considerable estate in the Island of Jamaica. Thomas
Cornell died in the year 1726, and his son, my father, in the year 1766, at
the same age, viz.: 55, at Kingston, in the Island of Jamaica, where he had

gone to receive a large sum of money awarded to him by the British
government. I was his only child, and at the time of his death he was the
King's Lieut.-Governor, and Chief Justice of the colony of Rhode Island
(his commissions as such are in the possession of Chapman Biddle, his
great-grandson).

I, Rebecca Biddle, was born in the year 1755, at my father's farm on the
east side of the Island of Rhode Island, in Middletown township, six miles
from the town of Newport. My father, Gideon Cornell, in the year 1732, at
the age of 21, married Rebecca \'aughan. I had a brother who died an infant
at the age of nine months. My mother's father, Captain Daniel Vaughan,
was master of a vessel then under his command on Ocracoke Bar on the coast
of North Carolma. I will relate to you the following circumstances connected
with his loss. In the year 1717, an old woman in Newport reported to be a
witch and known by the name of Mother Carey, came to the house of my aunt
Cadman (where my grandfather Capt. Vaughan then resided), where was a
quantity of fresh butter put up for the intended voyage. Mother Carey told
the captain that she must have one of these kegs of butter, which, however
he would not give her, when she observed to him that he would repent of it,
which the captain did not regard, although his friends (such was the super-
stition of the day) urged him to give the old woman the butter. Shortly
after this time the vessel he commanded sailed from Newport bound to
North Carolina, and on Christmas Day, 1717, arrived and came to anchor off
Ocracoke Bar on the coast of North Carolina. Several of Captain Vaughan's
friends saw the brig come to anchor, went down to the shore to meet him and
distinctly observed a boat putting off for the shore from the brig. It being
a very bitter cold day, they remarked that they would go to the only house
on the beach and warm themselves before the captain and his people came
on shore. After remaining in the house some time, they became anxious
about the boat, and accordingly went out to look for her; they could
perceive no sign of the boat or of the appearance of any persons being on
the brig. They then all went out to the brig, and upon getting on board
found the kettle boiling in the caboose, the sails furled and every thing in
order, but no living thing on board except a little dog."

From this letter it appears that Mrs. Rebecca Biddle was
her father Gideon's only heir, and as he seems to have gotten
the lion's share of his father's property, that the inheritance of
the family went to the Biddies of Philadelphia.
