Birth: Feb. 12, 1807
County Wicklow, Ireland
Death: Aug. 8, 1877
Madison County
New York, USA

Middleton Tackaberry was born in Ireland, the child of Nathaniel Tackaberry and Sarah Neusom. Family legend says that Middleton had to flee Ireland as a babe in his mother's arms because of the "Catholic trouble."

He married Clarissa Clark, the daughter of Samuel Clark and Clarissa Clark, early pioneers of Madison County. The Clarks came from Halifax, Vermont, by ox cart in 1806 and purchased a farm on Crow Hill. Eventually, they settled in Eaton.

In 1847, Middleton was very ill and in danger of losing his leg. He wrote the following:

"To my kind sister, Almeda Clark"

Thus we are called to suffer pain
While here on Earth we stay
Now let us live as we shall wish
In that tremendous Day

When you and I
Must stand before the face of our great judge
That when we pass our suffering lives
We may in Heaven lodge

I will write a better verse another time,
Yours in haste.

I remain your affectionate Brother,
Middleton Tackabery (sic)
