Generation

3   Samuel Joshua Shores (more info)

 

1.  Biographical notes:

 

Born 1755 in Sussex County, New Jersey.  Died about 1825, about age 70, on the farm he settled in Sheshequin Township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania; interred there in Post Cemetery, but no marker remains.

 

Was a native of New Jersey.  Served in the Revolutionary War.  Moved from Sussex County, New Jersey to Wysox, Bradford County, Pennsylvania in 1795 and settled 1st on the Piollet flats, where he lived 2 years.  Samuel was a respected and well known hunter.  The abundance of game in the Pennsylvania wilderness convinced him to purchase land in the nearby hills, settling the farm subsequently owned by J. F. Patterson.  He erected a log house on what came to be known as Shores Hill and moved in with his family.  In the ensuing years he harvested innumerable deer, bear, panthers, and other wild animals from the wilderness, generally keeping his larder full of venison by hunting before breakfast.  The remainder of the work day he and his sons cleared nearly the whole of a large farm.
