Excerpt from The Dodge Lands at Cow Neck: An Appendix to Robert Dodge's History of Tristram Dodge and His Descendants in America
The errors and omissions inevitably occurring in the first edition of any work, and especially in a Genealogy, where absolute accuracy is difficult of attainment, led the writer to construct a list of errata in his own copy of the above History; additions of new matter were made, and the result was finally embodied in the ensuing pages, which naturally fall into three divisions, as follows: -
Part I. - Corrections to be made in the first edition of the History.
Part II. - Description of the " Dodge Lands" at Cow Neck, L. I.
Part III. - Reminiscences of the Old Dodge Homestead, at Port Washington, by Henry T. Dodge.
Although some parts of this Appendix are of necessity rather "dry," yet there are several quaint and interesting items which it is hoped will be found acceptable to the members of our family, and perhaps even to the general reader.
Valuable assistance has been given in this work by the following relatives and friends: Robert Dodge, the author of the "History"; Henry O. Dodge, and his son Henry T. Dodge. of Port Washington, L. I.; Mrs. Helen D. Campman, of New York, and H. M. W. Eastman, Esq., of Roslyn; to all of whom grateful acknowledgments are due.
Brooklyn, January, 1896.
