PATTEE, Dummer Sr.
Birth Place: New Hampshire,
I also have a Pattee/Davis connection. For what it is worth my ggg grandfather Dummer Pattee was born in 1781 in Warren NH. He married a Mary Davis (b 1784) on June 16,1803. He died January 2, 1814 in the US Service. Mary died 1856 in Lafayette, Indiana. They had a son Asa J. Pattee born in 1804. Asa was married to Olive McAllister on July 4, 1824 in Brandon, Vt.
In the 1700's, the area now comprising southern Vermont and northern Massachusetts was subject to frequent Indian raids. To protect the growing population, Fort Dummer was built in 1724 on the site of the future town of Brattleboro. It served as both a scouting post and a trading center.
The security of the fort attracted settlers who cleared 200 acres surrounding Fort Dummer in 1752. A year later, this area was chartered as Brattleboro by King George II. The town was named after its title owner, William Brattle, Jr., a colonel in the King's Militia.
