THE DEPOSIT COURIER
DEPOSIT, DELAWARE CO, NY
By Gregg Milk and John A. Aiello
Phillip Pine was born on 17 Nov 1741 in Long Island City, Queens Co, NY, the youngest of six children born to the marriage of John Pine and Grace Freelove Carman.
He married Miss Phebe Howard on 15 Aug 1765 in Rumbout (now known as Poughkeepsie), Dutchess Co, NY.
Phebe and Phillip had eight children: Nancy Pine born on 29 Aug 1766; Daniel born on 17 Nov 1768; Mary on 15 Sep 1771; Sarah on 02 Apr 1774; Peter born on 12 Feb 1777; Elizabeth born on 28 Sep 1779; Martha on 10 Sep 1782 and Phebe born on 08 Feb 1788.
Phillip served in the American Revolution as an enlisted man in the Dutchess County Militia, Second Regiment, New York State, along with his older brother Silvanus Pine, under the command of Colonel Abraham Brinkerhoff.
After the war, in the spring of 1791, with his wife, two sons, Daniel and Peter, and four daughters, Sarah, Elizabeth, Martha and Phebe, he left his home in Fishkill, Dutchess Co, NY, on the Hudson, and he became the second permanent settler in Deposit.
Before coming to Deposit, Mr. Pine bought four hundred acres of land, including the Cook-house flats on the east side of the river. The Indians had thirty or forty acres cleared, and their council ground, a plot about eight rods square, was on the spot where the farm buildings were made. Philip Pine was an energetic farmer and business man.
Phebe Howard Pine died on 19 Jun 1813 in the sixty-sixth year of her life at Cook-House Flats where she and Phillip settled in 1791. Phillip died there five years later on 26 Aug 1818 at the age of seventy-seven. They are both buried in the Revolutionary War Cemetery, as are both their sons, Daniel and Peter with their wives, and Martha and her husband Matthew Brown. It is believed that Elizabeth and her husband Samuel Butler are also buried there from past records, but their stones are either two of the illegible ones or they have gone missing. There are also several of their grandchildren buried there.
All of Phebe and Phillip's surviving children married, had children and settled in and near the village, except for Mary, who married Benjamin Cromwell on 13 Jun 1790 at the Dutch Reformed Church, Fishkill, Dutchess Co, NY and remained in Fishkill until her death in 1840; and Peter, who married Phebe Edick, a daughter of Capt. Conrad Edick and Margaret Whitaker.
Daniel Pine married Miss Anna Ogden and had eight children; Sarah a.k.a. Sally who married Jonas Underwood; Elizabeth who married Samuel Butler; Martha, who married Matthew Brown and Phebe who married Isaac H. Youmans.
Philip Pine was opposed to the marriage with his daughter Sarah (Sally) to Jonas Underwood, and also of the marriage of his daughter Elizabeth to Samuel Butler. But the parties in each case would not be thwarted.
Sally slipped away from home to the house of John Hulce, where a minister had been provided, and the knot was tied. In the case of Butler afterward, Pine refused to make a wedding, and Butler went over the river in his working clothes in the middle of the day, was married, and returned to his work. In both cases the marriages were happy and fortunate in the sequel. Both the grooms became prominent citizens, and raised large and respectable families.
Underwood built the large and substantial house now the oldest house in the village-and Butler, in 1806, built the house in which he lived for many years. Youmans and Brown each built houses in the village.
Daniel Pine settled on a farm four miles above Deposit, on the river road. He had two sons-Philip and Peter-and three daughters; one of them married to Charles Hewitt in 1791, and the other to Benjamin Austin.
His son, Peter, who inherited the homestead, also lived there till the opening of the Erie railway, when he sold it. It subsequently was purchased by Judge N. K. Wheeler, who owned it until his death. Peter Pine was for many years supervisor of Tompkins, was associate judge of the county, and twice a member of the State Legislature. He died in 1847, aged seventy.
