Village of havertown

"It was during the revolutionary period and in the following years that the first permanent settlements began. According to various authorities, the years 1781 to 1784 mark the date of these pioneer movements. At about this time several families, making their way up the East branch of the Delaware river, located at the place called Shavertown. These families included John, Jacob and Philip Shaver (hence the name).

They had migrated from Dutchess county, while Philip Barndardt had come to this district from Schoharie county."
