    Notes 
    • THE FRIENDS SETTLEMENT IN 1828
      The population at Quaker Settlement, as Philadelphia village was then known, increased very slowly, and in 1828 the heads of families located there were Edmund Tucker and Miles Strickland, proprietors of the flouring-mill; Platt Homan, their miller; Samuel C. Frey and Cyrus C. Dodge, both inn-keepers; Harvey Hamblin, John Cross, W. Mosher, shoemakers; James Cromwell, cabinetmaker; Stephen Roberts, Orrin Cloyse, Elijah Comstock, John Roat, Justin Gibbs, Edmund Hall, Robert Gray, merchant, and successor of Samuel Case who opened the first store in Philadelphia, corner of Main and Antwerp streets, Seth Otis, also a store-keeper, Dr. Almon Pitcher, and Horace Ball. The latter built the first fulling-mill and clothiery, afterwards successively owned by William Comstock, Miles Shattuck, and Hollis S. Houghton. Robert Gray built the first and only distillery in Philadelphia, on the west side of the river, at the Settlement.

      From 1807 until about 1830, no headstones were erected at all at the Quaker Graveyard, even though many non-quakers were buried there. The first gravestone erected was in 1831. In 1840, it was determined to enlarge the burial ground at Philadelphia village and a parcel adjacent to the Old Quaker graveyard was obtained.
