  • Notes 
    • "It was at Capt. Smith's, in 1821, that the Wilbee's, a family of English settlers going to the Pilkington Estate, found shelter. Some of them were sick with typhus fever and were here nursed back to health. During the voyage out, on a vessel called the "Asia," a baby girl had been born and she was called "Mary Asia." At Capt. Smith's the young mother died of the hardships of the voyage, leaving the baby girl to be nursed and cared for, for two years, by Capt. Smith's family. One of the sons was especially kind to the mitherless bairn. The others in the family teased him by saying she would be his wife some day, never thinking that it might be true, but again was truth strangers than fiction for Mary Asia Wilbee became Mrs. Cushman Smith.
