Events
• Timothy Treat came to Homer from West Stockbridge, Berkshire, Massachusetts, USA. 1638,3125
• He had a residence in 1799 in Homer, Onondaga County, New York, USA. 3125
• Timothy Treat arrived in Homer in Bef 1800. "While the names of all who came in after this date cannot probably be given, we can mention the following: Stephen Knapp, Daniel, Samuel and Gideon Hobart, Titus Stebbins, Samuel Hotchkiss, Dr. Lewis S. Owen, Deacon Noah Hitchcock, Zenas Lilly, Timothy Treat, Enos Stimson, William Lucas, Asahel Miner, Col. Benajah Tubbs, John and Richard Bishop. (Footnote: Several of these pioneers settled within the present limits of Cortlandville and became identified with that locality. See history of that town.) These pioneers all came into the town prior to 1800, and constituted the beginning of the new settlement. They were the men who suffered many and great hardships, privations and inconveniences while subduing the wilderness, all the details of which it is impossible at this late day to obtain. Those who followed during the first quarter of the 19th century also endured privations and made sacrifices that are little realized at the present day. They all possessed aggressive spirits and labored not for themselves alone, but for their children and future generations as well. For this life and purpose they abandoned the hearthstones of their boyhood days, the endearments of social ties, cultivated associations and the many luxuries common to older settlements." 1325
• He was named after someone. 3573 Smith's History of Cortland County states: "Timothy Treat was from Berkshire, Mass., and settled about eighty rods north of the later residence of John Barker, subsequent-ly owned by Mr. Bowen. He had a family of eight children, one daughter becoming the wife of Stephen Knapp."
