But in case you still don't understand, I have a distant yet personal attachment to this area. It goes back 250 years to my 5x great grandfather William Prendergast who came to America in 1748 from Wexford, Ireland.
He built this tenant farmhouse in Pawling at the bottom of Quaker Hill in the 1750s, later sold it to another Irish protestant named John Kane who supported William in leading a 500- to 2,000-man armed rent rebellion in 1766 that forced the British to use troops against the colonists for the first time. After my 5x great grandfather was sentenced to death for treason, imprisoned in the Dutchess County jail in Poughkeepsie, saved by his wife, pardoned by King George III, and then the Revolutionary War started.
During the war, this house was ordered seized by a Committee of Correspondence in Albany since Kane was a loyalist (as was William, who had moved into a newer farmhouse across the street).
