Wyman devotes several pages to the Fosdicks.
James Fosdick (1716-1784) was prominent in town affairs, and left a good estate.
In his inventory we read of a mansion house, two shops, three acres or more, near Prospect Hill, etc. We have had occasion in a previous article to speak of a Mr. Hancock who was teaching insidering.
Another teacher, in one or the other of these districts, was James Gardner, who received, through Collector Hawkins, pay for his services, August, 1786.
We have mentioned the name of Amos Warren.
He was serving in 1779, and again in 1784. August 2, 1784, Amos Warren and Samuel Gardner are allowed to keep tavern.
We are justified in concluding that, previous to 1786, there was no public school building in these two districts.
