THE HISTORY AND MAP OF DANBY, VERMONT, BY J. C. WILLIAMS.
IRISH, JESSE, from Nine Partners in 1768, was the first settler on the farm now owned by Nelson Colvin. He had seven sons, some of whom, together with himself, were reputed to be Tories. In July, 1777, he himself went to Gen. Burgoyne's head-quarters at Whitehall and procured protection papers. On reaching the British Camp he presented himself to Burgoyne, saying "here is thy servant, Jesse, and his seven sons," whereupon, promising to either join the British army or remain quietly at home, he received the General's gracious protection. It is said that he rendered aid to the British army, by which his property was confiscated. He resided here with his family after the war and until his death. The names of his children are as follows: Jesse, Jr., Jonathan, William, David, Abel, Peter and John, all of whom came here with their father.
