Overview and metadata sections

Foote, Ebenezer, 1756-1829

Born April 12, 1756 in Connecticut, Ebenezer Foote was the son of Daniel (1717-1801) and Margaret Parsons (1721-1764) Foote. At the start of the American Revolutionary War, Foote volunteered as a soldier, without permission from his father, and saw action at the Battle of Bunker Hill, wintered in Valley Forge, and was taken prisoner at the Battle of Fort Washington. Following his capture, Foote was held in Bridewell Prison in New York City, from which he escaped in December, 1777 by swimming across the Hudson River to New Jersey. Although free from captivity, Foote's health was compromised due to his winter-time escape, and he was unable to participate in further military engagements. Instead, he served in the Commissary Department as inspector of cattle for the Continental Army, stationed in Crompon, New York. In this capacity, he gathered cattle from the countryside and forwarded them across the Hudson River to West Point to supply the troops. He eventually left the army in 1783 with the rank of major.

Returning to civilian life, Foote served as a member of the New York legislature in 1792, 1794, 1796, and 1797, and worked in the mercantile business in Newburgh, New York and Ulster County, New York until 1797, when he actively participated in the formation of Delaware County, and moved to Delhi, New York. He quickly became active in Delaware County's community and politics. He was appointed the first county clerk of Delaware County, serving from 1798 to 1801, served as a member of the state senate from the Middle District from 1798 to 1802, sat in the Council of Appointment with Governor John Jay (1745-1829) in 1799, and conducted an extensive land agency. In 1810, Foote was appointed the judge of the New York Court of Common Pleas, serving until 1816, and then again, from 1828 until his death in 1829.

In 1779, Foote married Jerusha Purdy (1754-1818) and, in 1797, he began building his estate, Arbor Hill, on land granted to him in return for his military service. The Footes were the parents of four children: Frederick Parsons Foote (1782-1827), Charles Augustus Foote (1785-1824), Harriet Foote (born 1787), and Margaret Parsons Foote (1790-1840). Frederick Parsons Foote served as a general in the War of 1812. He married Charlotte Welles, had three children, and died in Leghorn Italy at the age of 45. Charles Augustus Foote, a lawyer and member of Congress from New York in 1824, married Maria Baldwin and was the father of five children who lived to adulthood: Frances, Catherine B., Rensselaer (West point graduate and career soldier who served in the Seminole War and was killed at the Battle of Gaines Mill during the Civil War), Charles A., and James. Harriet Foote first married Ambrose Bryan, and later married her cousin John Foote (son of Ebenezer's brother Isaac [1746-1842]). She became guardian to her brother Charles' children following his death. Margaret Parsons Foote married Reverend Ebenezer K. Maxwell (1743-1840), the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Delhi for twenty-eight years.

Ebenezer Foote died on December 28, 1829 at the age of 75.

The Ebenezer Foote Papers date from 1766 to 1925 and primarily document Foote's land agency business. The bulk of the records date from 1785 to Foote's death in 1829, and in addition to the land and financial records related to his business, the collection also contains some legal records, records documenting Foote's work as inspector of cattle for the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, and limited family records. The collection is arranged in four series: "Business Records, Largely Relating to Land, 1766-1829," "Legal Records, 1788-1829," "Revolutionary War Correspondence and Financial Records regarding Supplies of Cattle for the Continental Army, 1778-1782," and "Family Records, 1790-1925."

As a collection, this material provides an interesting glimpse into the formation of a new county, particularly in assessing its property, negotiating its land transactions, and governing/judging its community. The papers also provide a unique opportunity to see the American dream in action, from fighting for the nation's independence, building a business, earning success and respect, and participating in the governance of the county and state.

Box 13 is oversized.

This collection was acquired in two parts. The bulk of the collection was donated by Stewart Robinson, March 18, 1964. The correspondence found in "Series III. Revolutionary War Correspondence and Financial Records Regarding Supplies of Cattle for the Continental Army, 1778-1782" was purchased at auction in 2012.

Arrangement

This material is arranged alphabetically by person dealing with Foote.

Scope and Contents

The financial and land records include accounts, agreements, bills and receipts, bonds, covenants for deeds, deeds, descriptions of lots, estate records, instructions and/or orders for payment, leases, mortgages, promissory notes, quit claims, releases, and surveys, almost all of which relate to Foote's land agency business. Of interest may be the quit claims of former Continental Army soldiers which were negotiated by Foote, as well as the assessment of property and land in Delaware County, New York in 1798. This assessment resulted from an act of Congress, passed July 9, 1798, entitled, "an act to provide for the valuation 'of Lands and Dwelling-Houses and the enumeration of Slaves within the United States,'" and for which Foote served as principal assessor. The material consists of Foote's appointment and oath, instructions, and several versions and drafts of forms listing and describing "each Dwelling-house, with the Outhouses;" "Lands, Lots, Buildings and Wharves;" and "Slaves" in Delaware County as of the first day of October 1798. These were clearly not the final lists submitted since some are blank, and there are usually only a few names listed on the forms.

Scope and Contents

The third series, "Revolutionary War Correspondence and Financial Records regarding Supplies of Cattle for the Continental Army," dates from 1778 to 1782. The correspondence, organized chronologically, relates almost entirely to cattle supplies and general needs for supplies of the Continental Army, with the most frequent correspondents being James Forsyth, Daniel Kellogg, Simon Phillips, Nathaniel Stevens, and Asa Worthington. The series also contains invoices for cattle supplied and an account of monthly deliveries of beef cattle. There are also four letters addressed to John Fisher, who was the keeper of Continental stores at Fishkill, New York, from Colonel Hay and Timothy Whiting, regarding camp supplies, such as iron, kettles, tents, and writing paper. These documents are revealing examples of the needs and desperation experienced by the Continental Army.

Arrangement

This series is arranged with the letters first, followed by financial material.

Arrangement

The material in this series is arranged alphabetically by the creator.

Scope and Contents

The final series, "Family Records," dates from 1790 to 1925, and deals largely with Foote's children and grandchildren, but also contains a small amount of material regarding his own estate. Family members included are his father, Daniel Foote; his daughters, Harriet Foote Bryan (later Foote) and Margaret P. Foote Maxwell; his sons, Charles Augustus Foote and Frederick Parsons Foote; and his son-in-law, Reverend Ebenezer K. Maxwell. Also included, in Harriet Bryan's material, are the court records making her guardian of her brother Charles' children (Frances, Catherine B., Rensselaer, Charles, and James), all of whom were minors at the time of their father's death. Of interest are notes of Reverend Ebenezer K. Maxwell, which probably are for sermons given at the First Presbyterian Church of Delhi, New York.
