On June 8, 1834, Judge Daniel Cony's home was consumed by fire. Judge Cony had erected the frame of that house on October 17, 1797, on the 20th anniversary of the capture of General Burgoyne's army. Cony was a Massachusetts militia offier in the American army that had compelled Burgoyne's surrender in 1777 after several battles at Saratoga in upstate New York. This victory brought France into the Revolutionary War and ensured final victory for the new nation at Yorktown in 1781. Judge Cony and his faily came to the Fort Western settlement in 1778, where he served as a physician, legislator, jurist, and community benefactor. Cony's new house, a double brick visible on the hill behind the fort, was built in 1834. Judge Cony died there in 1842.
