    Notes 
    • From the Foote Family History and Genealogy:

      Daniel Foote, b. April 27, 1724; m. January 14, 1748, Martha, daughter of Deacon John Stillman, and great-granddaughter of Lieut. Phillip Smith, of Hadley, MA. She died July 24, 1794, age 64. He removed from Simsbury, CT, about 1764 to Washington, MA, and cleared away the forest and made a farm. He moved next to Dalton, MA; purchased land and brought into cultivation a valuable farm. This he sold to Daniel, his oldest son, and moved to Middlebury, VT, and bought one thousand acres of wild land, on which he built mills, felled the forest, and resided for many years. About 1783 he bought all of the land that is now in the village of Middlebury and the west side of the river and erected a grist mill and saw mill. This property was given by him to his sons Stillman and John, the latter selling his interest to Appleton in 1792. They built dwellings and improved the property. Daniel Foote built the first bridge at Middlebury Falls. About 1801 he divided his property at Middlebury among his children, and went to Canton, NY, his son Stillman having moved there a short time before. In passing through Montreal, he took the smallpox and died a few days after he arrived in Canton. He was a man of great industry and indominable perseverance, and peculiarly fitted for a pioneer in a new country. He died May 10, 1801, and was buried in an elm bark coffin. All of his twelve children were members of the church. His sons also were pioneers, and their children are now widely scattered over the United States.
