JOHN DEAKE FAMILY

ABD. JOSEPH DAKE
Son of Dr. John Deake and Hannah Foster Deake was born on Nov. 11, 1753 in Town of Hopkinton, Kings Co., RI. He moved to the Town of Richmond with his mother and the rest of the family, when his father died, and there received his schooling and grew to manhood. He apparently made frequent trips back to his home township and on Dec. 12, 1775 he married Mary Button at Hopkinton, R.I., Elder Thomas West officiating. (She was the daughter of Joseph and Abigail Button, born Aug. 25, 1750 and died 1807-1808 in Vershire, VT. Her father had died about three months before her birth). In the 1777 military census he was listed as living in Richmond, R.I.

According to family legend Benjamin and Joseph Dake were soldiers in the Militia and served in the Revolutionary War. Records show that Benjamin Dake did serve in the Revolutionary War and before he died he applied for a pension from the Federal Government, but there is no record, yet found to show that Joseph Dake served in the Militia or the war. Joseph lived into the 1840's and he most certainly would have applied for a Federal Pension under the new pension law of June 1. 1832 if he had had any service.

In 1781, Joseph along with his twin brother Benjamin moved to the Town of West Windsor, Vermont, where their brother John had moved about seven years before. He was listed in the Town taxlist for the year 1785 as having four acres, a couple of oxen and some cattle.

The Federal Census indicates he had a second marriage. In 1786 he left Windsor with his family and moved to Vershire Co., VT. On Dec. 9, 1786 Joseph Dake purchased land in the Town of Vershire, Orange County, Vermont. He received a deed to more land in Vershire in November 1793. Here he lived for the next twenty-three years or more and here his family grew to adulthood.

On December 20, 1809, he sold ninety-six acres, all of the land he owned in the Town of Vershire. His wife did not sign her name to the deed so apparently wives were not required to sign their dower rights to a deed. The Federal Census of 1800 indicates that she was still living then. After selling his land in December it is most likely that Joseph and his family lived on there until the spring 1810 when they left for points west.

In the year 1802 John Dake, Jr. of Windsor had rode westward until he reached Lake Erie on the very western border of New York State. Here he purchased land in Niagara County from the great Holland Land Company. The records do not show that he returned to Vermont but by 1810 there was a large migration of Vermonters into the western counties of New York, including Joseph Dake and wife, his son Ebed and wife, and Joseph and Mary's son John also the widow Susannah Dake, her daughters and their husbands.

Joseph Dake settled in the Town of Holland, in what later became Erie County. He is listed in the Census of 1820, 1830 and is shown living with son Ebed in 1840. His son John, married in the Town of Holland. Helped establish the village of Protection, New York where he manufactured spinning wheels and chairs and in the 1840's he had a sawmIL. He is buried in the village cemetery on Vermont Hill road.

There are today, several families of Dakes' living in Erie county, New York, and as late as 1940 one of them had an old Bible in which the two quotations were found: "Shadrach Dake born November 20, 1784""Joseph Dake and Mary Button were married December 12, 1775 Windsor, Vermont." (The Windsor Vermont is wrong). Joseph Dake died in the late 1940's at Rushford, Allegany Co., NY. He was buried in the Town of Holland, Erie Co, NY.

It may be that for a long time the family never knew what happened to him. However, the Vermont records show that Benjamin Dake went back to Tunbridge, Orange Co., Vt., and the Town adjacent to Vershire where he was remarried to Mary N. (Polly) Colby, on Oct. 9, 1808. (She was born on Oct. 9, 1788 at Danville, Rochingham, New Hampshire to John and Hannah (Perham) Colby.  She died March 2, 1864 at Barry Twp., Barry, Michigan).  They later had 11 children.

He served in the NY Militia for 2 months and 9 days. In Sept. 1814 he volunteered to go to Plattsburgh and served in Capt. Ebenezer Spencer's Company, Vershire, Vermont. About 1819 he moved to the Town of Holland, Erie, New York. In 1820 he was listed as living in Holland, Erie Co., N.Y. (3 males under 10; 1 male 10 to 16; 2 females under 10; 2 females 10 to 16) In the 1820's he moved to Rushford, Allegany, New York (Podunk area) where he was part owner of a sawmill with Oliver D. Benjamin. He moved again in the 1840's to Barry Twp., Barry, Michigan. Polly died on March 2, 1864 in Wyoming Co., New York and was buried in Arcade Cemetery, Arcade, Wyoming, New York. There is no record of his divorce from his first two wives. He married a third time in Michigan to Clarissa Richards, on June 1, 1845 in Barry Twp., Barry, Michigan (Daughter of James Richard; born about 1815 in New York and died 1915).   They had one daughter; Esther Ann Dake.  He moved to Newaygo Co., Michigan in 1860 and bought land from Samuel Bruce on May 17, 1864 in Denver Twp., Newaygo, Michigan.   He died on May 23, 1865 in Denver Twp., Newaygo, Michigan and is buried in Bull Cemetery, Hesperia, Newaygo, Michigan.

Stowe VT Map

From: Vermont Historical Gazetteer, Vol. II, Abba Hemenway

In 1803, a military company was organized in town, commanded by the following named officers: John Seabury, Capt.; Daniel Lathrop, Lieut.; David Moody, Ensign. This company continued in existence until the war of 1812, during which four or five of its members were drafted in the service.

When the battle of Plattsburg occurred, Sept. 11, 1814, there were two military companies existing in town; one was called the "Light Infantry" and the other, "The Floodwood." Besides, there were a few men who belonged to an organization, existing in Washington County, called the "Light Horse." The British came into Plattsburg on Freeman's meeting day, the first Tuesday of September. On Wednesday following, cannonading was distinctly heard at Stowe. About midnight, Wednesday, some of the citizens of the town were aroused, and informed of the condition of things at Plattsburg, and the country adjacent. The night was dark and rainy, and the roads were very muddy. No one had any authority to call out a single man, and no military officer attempted to call out any man, or exercise any control over them.

However, a portion of both military companies, and one or two of the horse company, and perhaps a few men belonging to no company, in all about 50 men, got together in a short time, and in the night, without rations, guns or ammunition, and some of them poorly clothed, and scarcely shod at all, started for Waterbury, through the woods, which then inclosed nearly the whole way. Their tramp, for it could not be called a march, through the mud, with the rain occasionally pouring down, was any thing but pleasant for men, even with stout hearts, inspired by the most patriotic motives. They reached Waterbury about day-light, and found portions of companies form Montpelier, Middlesex, Waitsfield, and other towns in Washington County, who had come there under circumstances similar to their own, gathered together on a plat of ground, in a sort of parade, and Col. John Peck was then making a speech to them. They joined the throng, which were advised by Col. Peck, to make the best of their way to Bullington, without regard to order, and rendezvous near the college.

They started from Waterbury, and on their way, got a little something to eat, in the houses along the road, as they could find any thing. At the time, one Eldridge kept a hotel about three miles east of Burlington, at which place they arrived about night, and endeavored to obtain permission to rest their weary bodies, on and about his premises. It seems he had little sympathy with them, in their efforts, and refused to have them on his premises. They told him plainly they would not be refused, and they filled his barns and sheds with lodgers; some of the Stowe men found in the morning that they had slept under the droppings of the turkey roost. In the morning they roused, and at nine o'clock were gathered in parade at Burlington, near the college. Here Col. Peck made a speech to the men, in which he signified his purpose to cross the lake to Plattsburg, with such men as saw fit, voluntarily, to follow him. He said he would not even advise any man to go, who was not inclined to do so, or even who feared he might be sorry, if he did.

To determine who was disposed to follow him, he requested that, when he pronounced the word "march" , those who were not inclined to go, should step three paces in the rear. When the word was given, more than one half remained firm in their position. At this time, there were about 150 men on the ground, and at Burlington, from Stowe. Some had started later in the night than the first squad and some the next day, and others still later, even up to Sunday. Col. Asabel Raymond, Captain of the "Floodwood" company, returning home from Boston Saturday night, started, the same night, for Burlington. Not reaching his command in time, the men from both companies submitted to the command of the officers of the "Light Infantry" company. After ascertaining who was going to cross the lake, they drew their rations. The eatable was whet bread. They procured some pork and beef, and a large kettle for boiling it; and had but half boiled it, when the drum called them to march to the wharf, to be ready for crossing. They put their half-cooked meat in bags, and some of the men swung them over their shoulder, and as they walked, the grease dropped down their backs on to their heels. The loaves of bread, which were very large, were carried by thrusting a stick through them, and shouldering them. On their way to the wharf, they drew their guns, which had just been returned from Montpelier, where they had been sent, for greater safety. Friday night about sundown, as many as could, went aboard the watercraft, which was to convey them across the lake. This craft was an open-top sailboat, with much the appearance, when viewed from the shore, of a common sheep-yard. Up to this time, the men had eaten little or nothing that day. When the boat had been sailing about two hours, it was be-calmed and began to leak. The men were called upon, and to make any considerable progress, were obliged to bail and row by turns, all night. Saturday morning about daybreak, they reached "Ketchum's Landing" in Peru, as they did not choose to go direct to Plattsburg. About 40 men from Stowe, crossed in this boat. More come over Saturday and Sunday. The main battle, which was on Sunday, was fought and decided by the defeat of the British forces, without the men from Stowe being called into actual fight; though they were in situations of danger, and were among the flying bombs and bullets. None of them happened to be killed, or wounded.

On the following Wednesday, they recrossed the lake in a sloop, delivered their guns back at the arsenal, and came home on Thursday following. Many men from this town, who denied to cross the lake to Plattsburg, could not find conveyance. Those, and such as did not desire to cross, having heard the news of victory, came home early in the week.

Under the act of Congress passed many years since, providing for the payment of one month's wages, to those who were "actually in the battle of Plattsburg," all who volunteered, at Burlington, to cross the lake, received pay; it being considered that, in legal contemplation, they were actually in the battle. By a more recent act of Congress, each of them, also, received a warrant for a quarter section of public land.
