"The Dunham family has been well represented in Nichols, nine brothers coming hither between 1812 and 1836, of whom five made here their permanent homes. Sylvanus Dunham, their father, born in 1754, in England (correction - it is more likely that he was born in Massachusetts), settled at East Town, Saratoga county, was a captain in the revolutionary army. Here he kept many horses, imported from England. He removed to Madison county in 1806 and owned a ferry on North river. He was at one time very wealthy, but had little at his death, September 4, 1814, at 60 years. He married Mrs. Ursula (Wright) Gilbert. They had thirteen children.
