Includes NotesNotes for Daniel Porter Varnum:

"Daniel Porter Varnum came with his father's family from Dracutt (?) to Sutton about 1800-02. Settled on an uncleared "farm" of 100 acres. Built log house with a Dutch fireplace. Later he built a frame house. In the first years there was not a wheeled vehicle in the township. 75 miles to Market--Montreal. They lived on cornbread, milk and pork until the winter of 1830-31 when they moved in sleigh to Whitby, Ont., 400 miles. His children were all born in Sutton; except Eunice, the youngest. Seven had died young. About 1844 his widow, Nancy, and the unmarried children, moved to Dorchester, Middlesex Co., Ont. He had poor health during most of his life and was unable to work during the last three years. One tradition says he died of consumption, another says he was killed by accident. He is buried in the cemetery west of Oshawa, Ont. A simple marble slab marks his place. My mother, Eunice, the youngest of the family, was only six when he died. His occupation was that of a farmer, and at intervals, shoemaker. He was a faithful member of the Methodist Church and occupied the position of class-leader for fifteen years. When they went to Methodist Quarterly meeting, it had to be on horseback, 75 miles through the woods, some of the way guided only by blazed trees.
