    Jonas Smith and Henry A. Delemater were the first settlers in the town. They came from Ulster county. New York, as agents for LeRay, with several others, among whom were Timothy Soper, with his brothers James and David R., M. Esselstyu and Peter Pratt. They came in a boat by way of Oswego, in 1801. sailing into Chaumont Bay, named on old maps "Nivernois" bay, after the Duke de Nivernois, a French nobleman. It was also called " Hungry Bay." They ascended Chaumont Bay about two and a half miles and began a settlement on the north bank of the stream, at what is now known as "Old Town Spring." They built a double log house for a store and dwelling, and also a frame building, but the location was found to be inconvenient and unhealthy, and it was abandoned. In 1808 they established themselves where the present village of Chaumont stands, which was surveyed into a town-plot the same season. During that year Smith & Delemater erected a saw-mill on the site of the Copely mill ; a warehouse was built, and Luther Britton opened the first tavern where the Elliott House stood, and later occupied the old Coffeen House, a stone structure which is yet standing on the north side of the bay, in a good state of preservation. Afterward Samuel Britton opened a tavern, but finally removed to the shore of the St. Lawrence river, opposite Linda's island. Before settling in Chaumont he traded the lot on which the court-house in Watertown now stands for a barrel of whisky.
    Several families from Ulster county located here at this time, and for a year or two the settlement flourished ; but in 1806 Smith & Delemater failed, lake fevers were prevalent, several deaths took place, and the growth of the village received a check. The first death was that of Timothy Soper, who was drowned in 1803. In 1805 a vessel was begun by a New Yorker by the name of Jones, who died before it was finished. Nancy Smith opened a school that year, being the first teacher in Chaumont. Delemater cleared the first land on Point Salubrious, so named by LeRay because of its freedom from malaria, in 1803, on a farm afterward owned by Harry Horton, who settled there in 1810. The first actual settler on the Point was James Horton, in 1806. Its freedom from sickness and the importance of its fishing interests, promoted its rapid settlement.
    By 1805 Daniel and John Tremper had settled on the Point and Henry Thomas had opened a store of goods at Chaumont. Other early settlers on the Point were Silas Taft, Stephen Fisher, David and Joseph Rider.
  13. [S581] Jere. Coughlin, compiler, Jefferson County Centennial 1905 (Watertown, N.Y.: Hungerford-Holbrook Co., 1905), "In 1805 [James] LeRay made very liberal offers to mechanics to settle in Chaumont and in Feb. of the same year John M. Tremper and Daniel Tremper, brothers, tanners by trade came here led by these inducements. James Horton, who was relied upon as a wagoner in going to and from distant markets, brought the Tremper families with his ox team from Kingston N.Y. to their new home."
