The principal purchaser was Alexander Macomb, who subsequently acted a distinguished
part in the northern purchases. On May 3, 1792, Macomb conveyed to Col. Samuel Ogden,
in trust for himself, Gen. Henry Knox, Robert Morris, and Gouverneur Morris, for £3200,
the four townships of Hague, Cambray, Oswegatchie and DeKalb, with the stipulation
that Col. Ogden should convey to Gen. Knox 44,114 acres, to Robert Morris 60,641 acres,
and to Gouverneur Morris 60,641 acres of this tract. This left Col. Ogden 90,000 acres,
all of Oswegatchie and a part of DeKalb, Cambray and Madrid townships. Col. Ogden
sold DeKalb to Judge William Cooper, father of J. Fenimore Cooper, the author.
Nov. 24, 1807, Col. Samuel Ogden moved to quash indictment of Aaron Burr for murder
of General Hamilton. — Centiiiel of Freedom.
Col. Samuel Ogden'78 was a very prominent Churchman and was a delegate to all
the conventions from 1791 to 1809. He was married by the Rev. Samuel Seabury on Sunday
Feb. 5, 1775, to Euphemia Morris, sister of Gouverneur Morris and Lewis Morris, a signer
of the Declaration of Independence. A tablet inscribed to her memory is in Grace Church,
New York, Broadway and 10th street, which reads, "Euphemia Ogden Relict of Samuel
Ogden Esq. of Newark, N. J. Born Sept. 10, 1754, Died June 2, 1818." "Isabella W
Ogden, her daughter. Born Feb. 17, 17S7. Died 15th April 1820."

the age of 17. Was a member of the Assembly with the exception of one
year, from 1806 to 1819. The records of the Assembly teem with the
manifestations of his untiring industry and of his unswerving fidelity to the
best interests of the people and the state. One whose attention has not been
called to the subject will be surprised to find with how many wise and useful
laws he enriched our statute books.

Nicholas Ogden'Si, with his father Judge Davidso, remained loyal to King George III.
during the Revolutionary War, and "Dickinson's Notes" state he went to Shelbourne, Nova
Scotia, in 1783, but returned after 1800. While in Nova Scotia he received grants of land
from the crown, as appear in the following record: "Register of Probate and Deeds Office,
R. G. Irwin Registrar. Shelbourne, N. S. — Grant of land to Nicholas Ogden from the crown
— King George the Third, April 1st 1784. — The land situated on Eastern side of Jordan
Bay about three miles below the mouth of the Jordan River — one parcel containing 200
acres.— Another 600 acres granted to Nicholas Ogden, Joshua Watson and Bartholemew
Sullivan as Tehnants in common. — Another grant to Nicholas Ogden of Town Lot in St.
John's Division. Letter I. No 9 — " All of which Nicholas and Hannah his wife sell to
Joshua Watson Oct. 1, 1785. "Registered Mar. 18, 1786 on the oath of Samuel Burling.
Together with all houses, out buildings, stables, yards, gardens, orchards, Lands, Tene-
mants meadows commons pastures trees woods pathways waters water-courses wind &
windmills (mill iron & iron work complete for a water mill) — Mill Dam Fishings privileges
&c. &c. which Nicholas Ogden also deeded to Joshua Watson. (Signed) Valentine Nutter,
Justice of the Peace. "
Nicholas OgdeniSi was vestryman of Christ Church, Parish St. Patrick and St. George,
Shelbourne, N.S., from 1789 to 1800. He was Barrack Master 1793-4, Overseer of River
Fishery and Justice of the Peace from 1784 to 1800. His house, framed from white oak
and brought from the U. S., is still standing in the centre of the town.
There is an inscription at Shelbourne that is connected with a pathetic story told by
the rector of Christ Church. The inscription runs thus : " Sacred / to the memory of /
Patrick Maxwell, Esq. / Ensign in His Majesty's 6th / or First Warwickshire Infantry /
son of William Maxwell , ' of Springkill Bar, N. B. / who was unfortunately / upset in a
sail boat /July 10th 1790 — & drowned /' aged 19 / deeply regretted by his parents & by
all / who knew him. " The rector explains that the young ensign lost his life in saving that
of Nicholas Ogden. Both were depending upon one oar that proved insufficient to keep
them afloat, and Mr. Ogden made some reference to his wife and children, when young
Maxwell immediately said there was no one depending upon him, and letting go the oar
was drowned. Two other members of the same regiment were also drowned.
Nicholas Ogden ■*■ returned from Nova Scotia about 1800 and was a resident of Newark,
N. J., at the time of his death. The Newark Centinel of Freedom of Feb. 25, i8i2,has: "Died,
yesterday a. m. Nicholas Ogden, Esq. of Newark, age 59." The same paper bearing date
Sept. 10, 1816, has : "Died, on the 6th, Hannah, wife of the late Nicholas Ogden, Esq.,
of Newark, in her 59th year. " The parents and their children are buried in a little cemetery
on Rector street, Newark, in the rear of Trinity Church Chapel.
His will was dated, New York, Dec. 13, 1799, and proved, Newark, June 10, 1812. In
it he speaks of himself as being of Shelbourne, N. S., and names wife Hannah, daughters
Alida and Gertrude, sons Henry and David. He gives them one equal sixth part when
they shall respectively attain to the age of 21 years. The executors were Thomas Barclay
of New York, Edward Brinley of Shelbourne, N. S., and nephews David A. and Thomas
L. Ogden, of New York City.
All that is known of his children is from Christ Church records, parish of St. Patrick
and St. George, Shelbourne, N. S., excepting the first three children, who were probably
born in Newark, N. J.

She was a remarkable personality, and bright and active when an old
lady. She always insisted she was a British subject. When Lafayette re-
visited this country in 1824, she was one of a group of young ladies presented
to him in New York. Assuming they were all daughters of patriots, he
asked concerning her father, when she spiritedly replied, "My father, sir,
was loyal to his king and country. " Upon this the Marquis complimented
her for having the courage to stand by the principles of her father. It was
she who had the gravestones of Capt. David Ogden? and Col. Josiah Ogden"°
imbedded in the floor of the porch of Trinity Episcopal Church, Newark,
N. J. Her gravestone is the only one of the family stones bearing dates.

" Bolton's Hist, of Westchester Co., N. Y.," says: "The orthography of the surname
is properly Corte-landt ; the first syllable Corte or Korte, meaning in the Dutch language
'short,' the second landt, (land) literally the short land, a term expressing the peculiar
form of the ancient Duchy of Courland in Russia."
Philip Van Cortlandt was the eldest of three children, and a graduate of King's
College. He was a Tory during the Revolution and his estates were forfeited. "He is not
to be confounded with his uncle of similar name, the Patriot Colonel, who became the an-
cestor of the Van Cortlandts of Cortlandt Manor. He entered the British Army as Major
of the third Battalion, N. J. Loyal Volunteers. After the war his estates were confiscated
and he went to England. He d. May 1, 1814, and was buried at Harlsham, where a mural
monument is erected. His sons received commissions."
He is said to have had twenty-three children, of whom we have seventeen.

Thomas Stiles, first husb. of Abigail Ogden^s, was son of Jonathan Stiles, of Morris-
