    Mr. & Mrs. Main lived in the Main Settlement in Connecticut till their children were all born, and at least one, George married while there. They came to New York State with an ox-team and two horses, and remained for a time at Petersburg, Rensselaer Co. George Main and wife remained a year or so there, at which place their son Jefferson was born. The family came on westward, stopping for a visit with Edward Thurston and Abigail Main, his wife, who lived near Cooperstown, Otsego Co., NY. Their daughter Susannah remained a year or more with her aunt Thankful. The family moved on, spending a year in the town of Plainfield, then located near So. Brookfield, Madison Co., NY, where Mr. Main purchased a farm of one hundred and sixty acres with a frame house thereon, which was uncommon in those days. This homestead was about three miles from Five Corners, where the church was located, with Elder Simeon Brown, Jr., founder and pastor. Mr. Main owned one of the largest and strongest horses in the vicinity, named "Old Sampson," which he would mount, and ride to church with his wife or daughter. Later his daughter Susannah seemed quite willing to go, mounted on the pillion behind her father. Mr. Main was chosed deacon of the church soon after settling in the Main homestead, and his wife and several children became devout members. Deacon Daniel Main was a very will-educated man; he taucht school in Connecticut, and also in New York State, being very proficient in the profession, as some of his descendants have been also. While in Connecticut he often preached, but did not preach much after coming to New York State. He was Justice of the Peace, but farming was his chief occupation. He was tall, rather slender, and a man of commanding appearance. Being a deep thinker he was listened to very attentively, as he also possessed a very pleasing voice.
    Mrs. Main was short, and rather fleshy. For many years she was blind. She had a severe attack of typhoid fever, during which she was tenderly cared for by her daughter Susannah, and son Ira Miner and wife. After her recovery she could read and sew without even spectacles, some of her handiwork being in existence now in 1912.
     About one-half acre in the southeast corner of the Main homestead was set aside for burial purposes and known as the Main Cemetery. The first one to be buried there was Thankful (Brown) Main, wife of Jeremiah Main, who died March 20, 1812, aged ninety-five years. Her son Deacon Daniel and wife beside her, and several in the three following generations rest there. In memory of Deacon Daniel Main and wife a reunion is held yearly. At first it was held on the old homestead, later at the homes of different members of the union; but usually, of late years, at Summit Lake, a very quiet but picturesque place in the vicinity of Burlington Flats, Otsego Co., NY.
