  • Notes 
    • Another of the old settlers was one Mr. Jacob Thoman, a tailor from Switzerland. He built two taverns and for a time did considerable business. The place where his first tavern stood was purchased by George Roos who took it down and erected the present three storey stone tavern. The moral character of Mr. Jacob Thoman, however, had many blemishes. He was despised by almost every body and died a miserable death, after all his property had been squandered.
