About the year 1800 another emigration went out from Southampton to Montrose, Pennsylvania. Bartlett Haines or Hinds, originally from Boston, but from Southampton, in 1800 married Agnes, the widow of Isaac Post, and removed with her and her two sons, Isaac and David Post, to what is now Montrose, then a wilderness. Both of these boys lived to rear families themselves, whose descendants now live there.

Among others, Daniel Poster, Ichabod Halsey and David Harris went there about the same time. Isaac P. Foster removed there in 1811. Austin Howell, William Foster, Francis Fordham and Abraham Fordham in 1812.

Benjamin Sayre, a native of Southampton, went to Montrose from Cairo, New York, with his wife Priscilla and six children about this time also.

Judge William Jessup, born June 21, 1797, graduate of Yale 1815, married 1820 to Amanda Harris, emigrated there later. He died September 11, 1868, honored alike in church and State.

  Soldiers in the Slave Holders' Rebellion

The repeated demand for men to fill the armies and sustain the cause of freedom during the war of the Slaveholders' Rebellion, from 1861 to 1865, were met in a patriotic spirit by the people of Southampton. Her quotas were always promptly filled, either by her own sons or by substitutes which her wealth procured, as was customary throughout the country.

The limits of this work will not permit a detailed list of the soldiers who served in this war, but a copy taken from the original returns of the census of 1865, now deposited in the New York State Library, will be deposited in the office of the town clerk at Southampton. This list shows that from the first election district, including that portion of Sag Harbor lying in the town, were sent forty-one soldiers. From the second district, Bridgehampton, fifty soldiers. From the third, Southampton village, thirty-one soldiers. From the fourth, including Groodground, etc., twenty-nine. From the fifth or westernmost district, eleven soldiers. Total, 162. Besides these the town procured a large number of substitutes.
