The following paragraph is from the Vermont Historical Gazetteer, edited by Abby Maria Hemenway, Orleans County, Coventry Chapter: By Rev. Pliny H. White. Published by Claremont Manufacturing Co., 1877, pages 136-138.
"In 1799, Samuel Cobb and his son Tisdale visited the township [to later be named Coventry] with a view to settlement, decided to settle there, put up a log-house, and returned for their families. In March 1800, the first settlement of Coventry took place. The pioneer settlers were Samuel Cobb and Tisdale Cobb, father and son: Samuel accompanied by his children, Samuel, Jr., Nathaniel and Silence; and Tisdale by his wife. They came from Westmoreland, New Hampshire, May 15th, traveling on horseback as far as Brownington, which being the end of the road, they left their horses there and made their way on foot through the dense woods, marking the trees as they went till they reached the east part of Coventry, March 27th. Samuel Cobb pitched on lot No. 11, now occupied by Stillman Church, and built a log-cabin directly opposite the present site of Mr. Church’s house. Tisdale Cobb pitched on lot No. 12, now occupied by Jesse Miller, and built a cabin just east of the present grave-yard. Samuel Cobb, Jr., made an opening on lot 6, now owned by James K. Blake, but, being disappointed in some of Fitch’s promises, he did not locate permanently."
Tisdale moved to Putney, VT, about 1815, where he did blacksmithing and made surveyor's chains.
