    Notes 
    • Born in Monroe County in 1752, removed in 1790 from Northampton county to Wysox with his family, which he brought up the river in a Durham Boat. He at first occupied the Roswell Franklin house, opposite Towanda, then (in 1791) purchased the improvement of Asahel Roberts (now the Jesse Coolbaugh farm) and moved thereto where he continued to reside till the time of his death. Mr. Coolbaugh was one of the most prominent men of his time in Upper Luzerne County, which then included Bradford. In 1793 he was commissioned by Governor Mifflin a justice of the peace for Tioga Township, and in 1806 elected to the Lower House of the state Legislature, serving a term of one year. He subsequently again served as a magistrate, was one of the charter members of the first church organization in Wysox and filled the offices of deacon and scribe. His death occurred February 22, 1814, aged 62 years. His wife was Hannah Shoemaker, who died November 13, 1828, in her 73rd year. The children of Moses and Hannah Coolbaugh were: William, Samuel, Cornelius, Daniel, Alice, Sarah and Eleanor.

      Source: Towanda Daily Review, July 9, 1903 "History of Wysox: Pioneer Families."

      Note: Coolbaugh in America book indicated 9 children rather than 7.

      Moses Coolbaugh came to Wysox about 1790, from Northampton Co., Pa., near the Delaware river. When he came the low land below his house was covered with willows, in which were several Indian huts of some of the Delaware tribe, probably; they used to make willow baskets. He bought of Asahel Roberts, who had preceded him and made the original location. Roberts cultivated a part of the flats, which had been cleared by the Indians. Coolbaugh bought eighty acres, and Roberts removed to Breakneck, near Sheshequin, where he died. The farm is now owned by Darius Williams, and the house built by Roberts stood on the land now occupied by Mr. Williams' orchard. Mr. Coolbaugh brought his family up from Kingston on a Durham boat, and first occupied a house of Roswell Franklin, opposite Towanda. He afterwards cleared up the Roberts farm and settled thereon, and died there Feb. 22, 1814, aged sixty-two years. His wife Hannah died Nov. 13, 1828, aged seventy-three years. Mr. Coolbaugh was the first justice of the peace under Governor M'Kean. He was elected to the legislature, and had to resign his office as justice, and was succeeded by William Myer, but when Mr. Coolbaugh returned from the capital he brought his commission back with him, and there were then two justices in Wysox. Mr. Coolbaugh, in excavating a hole in his garden to bury potatoes in, exhumed the body of an Indian in a sitting posture. William Coolbaugh, a brother of Moses, lived on the present farm of Myer, which he afterwards sold to Amos Mix.

      The children of Moses and Hannah (Shoemaker) Coolbaugh were William, Daniel, Samuel, Cornelius, Elsie (married Burr Ridgway), Sarah (married Pierce), and Lana (married William Allen).
      William Coolbaugh's children were John, Harry, Betsey, Sally, Polly, Moses, and Ellen.
