      The Sullivan Review
      May 24, 1888
      WESTERN SULLIVAN HISTORY
      By Ulysses Bird
      At the time the first settlements were made in this part of the country, it was a part of Northumberland but Lycoming was struck off soon after, viz: in 1796. Elkland Township then included what is now Fox, Hillsgrove, Plunkett Creek and Cascade Townships. Forks was then a part of Shrewsbury.


      The first settler in what in now Sullivan County was Daniel Ogdon who moved to Hillsgrove on the loyal Sock soon after the close of the Revolutionary War and commenced improvements on the place now owned by Richard Biddle and built a small gristmill there. It has been learned from a reliable source that Ogdon was a Tory and no doubt settled here in the wilderness to escape persecution, if not death, from his more patriotic countrymen.
      His most bitter enemy was a man name Flatt living near Muncy, then known as Pennsburg. On two occasions, Flatt came over the mountain on purpose to shoot Ogdon, but did not find him at home, Ogdon did not remain a great while at Hillsgrove but was there when the settlements were begun in Forks and Elkland. He seemed to be greatly displeased when settlers began to come in and said the neighbors were too close for him, so he sold his land to John Hill and moved up the west branch of the Susquehanna where some of his descendants still reside.

      ***More on Daniel Ogdon. He was according to http://ourforebears.gnc.net/ps03/ps03_122.htm a pioneer settler from Cherry Valley, New York. Wife Eleanor Scoutan in 1810 Clearfield Co PA census.
      Daniel Ogden, prior to his coming to this locality, was a resident of Cherry Valley, New York State. During the war that place was the scene of a massacre almost equal to Wyoming. All his property was destroyed, and one of his sons, David, was killed by the Indians. His wife, with the remaining children, were compelled to flee to the woods for safety, and remained there during the entire night. In the year I797 Mr. Ogden, with three of his sons, came to this place, ascending the West Branch in canoes. In this work they met with great difficulty. The channel in places was narrow and filled with rocks, rifts, and water-soaked trees, and they were obliged frequently to unload and drag their empty canoes over these places, which hindered their progress considerably. They passed above the old Indian town, and made a landing on the site now occupied by Matthew S. Ogden, about half a mile south of Clearfield court-house. There was but one break in the vast wilderness, the far-famed clear fields near the site of the Indian village of Chincleclamoose. These fields bore evidence of recent cultivation upon the arrival of the pioneer. After having made a clearing and erected a log house, which was done with some assistance rendered by the few Indians then here, Mr. Ogden returned to Cherry Valley and brought his family here. Of his eight children, none were born here. They were Abner, Jonathan, David, who was captured and slain by the Indians at Cherry Valley; Daniel, jr., Joab, Jehu, Matthew, and Margaret?.

      Daniel Ogden, the father, was a strong, muscular man, a great hunter, and quite fond of joking. There was no grist-mill nearer than Lock Haven, and when meal was low, he used an old jointer-plane turned bottom up, and by drawing an ear of corn along the surface, managed to manufacture a sufficient quantity of meal to supply the family demand. His son, Matthew, being of an ingenious turn of mind, built a grist-mill in 1804 on Chincleclamoose Creek. The greatest novelty, in construction, that ever was erected in the country, was Mat. Ogden's mill. There was but one piece of iron in the whole structure, a spike used for a spindle. The bolter was made of capcloth, and geared to the water-wheel with a strap, but notwithstanding its rude construction, the mill supplied the grist for the neighborhood for some time, and until Robert Maxwell built the second mill on Anderson Creek some years later. Matthew Ogden married Elizabeth Bloom, daughter of William Bloom, in the year 1802. This was the first marriage ceremony performed in the county. "Squire" Arthur Bell officiated.

      Daniel Ogden died in I819, at the advanced age of eighty-four years. His wife died in 1835, aged ninety-eight years. Several of the children returned to New York State. Daniel, jr., moved over to the Allegheny River. Joab went West, but returned and settled near James Woodside, in Brady township in 1804, and was the second white settler in that locality. He died there.1365
      __________________________________________

      Daniel Ogden was the first settler in Sulivan County. He located Hillsgrove on a survey made on a warrant in the name of "William Clair." "He is supposed to have settled here about the close of the Revolutionary War, and tradition says he was a Tory?, and certain parties sought to take his life while at Hillsgrove.

      He did not remain here a great while, but left soon after the Birds, Warrens and Molyneux's settled at the forks of the Loyalsock Creek, in 1794. Ogden said neighbors were getting too near, so he left and moved up the West Branch Valley. He, however, built a small grist mill,* which was the first in the County."?The Historical Journal. McGinness. Vol. II, pp. 205.

      In an editorial note in The Historical Journal, Vol II., pp. 205, it is stated that "After leaving Lycoming County in 1797, Ogden and three of his sons ascended the West Branch in canoes to a point just below (above) the present town of Clearfield, where they settled. He soon afterwards returned to Cherry Valley, New York, and brought out his family. He is claimed to have been the first settler in Clearfield County, and many of his descendants still live there."52
      ____________

      Daniel Ogden located on the farm lately occupied by Matthew S. Ogden [in 1904], on South Second Street, Clearfield Borough. Cherry Valley was the scene of a massacre "during which all of Ogden's property was destroyed and his son David killed by the Indians.52
      I have seen a reference for A Flatt of Middlesex County, Woodbridge Twp, Year 1818 June Tax List p 103 NJ Tax Lists Index 1772-1822. IF we assume this is A for Andrew, this cannot be the Andrew Flatt below as this Andrew Flatt already in PA by 1790.
