Notes

Shared Note

Founded town of Walton, New York.
He was a Revolutionary war surgeon and a Graduate of Yale.

Dr. Platt Townsend, father of William, was born on Long Island in 1733
and, when he came to this part of the country with his family in 1795,
he found nothing before him but an unbroken forest. Here he cleared
for himself a homestead and built a lo
cabin, which his son afterward replaced by the stanch farmhouse where
his descendants now live, and which bids fair to stand for many years
to come and shelter many generations more of Townsends. Dr. Platt
Townsend was three times married. His firs
wife was Elizabeth Hubbard; and she was mother of William, Isaac, and
Platt, the latter dying when but eight years old. The Doctor's second
wife was Martha Dickinson, by whom he had one daughter, Frances, who
became the wife of Lancaster Lupton, an
Englishman of wealth and influence, in the direct line of the
nobility. His third wife was Ann Goslin, who survived him thirteen
years, and died March 29, 1828, ninety-two years of age. Dr. Townsend
lived at the old homestead in 1815. He re!
sts in the family burial-place on the ancestral farm. He was a much
beloved and public- spirited citizen, and at his decease left a very
large property in land and stock; but, what was better than all
earthly possessions, he had laid up for himself
goodly store of the high regard and respect of his fellow-men and the
sure approbation of his God.
