Notes for Newman S. Pine[slade.FTW]
The Pine family lived in the Town of Thompson of which Monticello is the county seat. Thompson was named for William Thompson who was the first judge of the county. In 1820, the population was 1,897 people. Many had dairy cows and sheep were raised for meat and wool. The Pleasnat View Lake House was an early summer resort and described as having a "splendid location." N.S. Pine was living just northeast of Pleasant Lake in the 1875 atlas and a school was located right near the lake. This body of water about one mile in length is also called Kiamesha Lake and is near the center of the north line of the Town of Thompson. Kiamesha is a Lenape word for clear water. At the old Hyde farm on the lake many Indian artifacts were found. In the Sullivan County Directory Newman S. Pine is listed as a farmer.
