Silas Hathaway, son of Simion Hathaway of Bennington, settled in Northern Vermont in the 1770s.  He was known as "Baron Hathaway" because he owned huge tracts of land including whole towns such as Swanton and Highgate, and large portions of St. Albans and Montreal.  He knew and dealt regularly with Ethan Allen and Ira Allen.  Silas was also called "Judge Sil" later in life serving as the judge for the area.  He was active in politics and the formation of the state, representing St. Albans and other towns in the Vermont House.  He built a log cabin on what came to be know as "Hathaway Point" over 230 years ago, before Vermont was a state.  The land has stayed in the family ever since: from Silas to Hiram, to Hiram Jr, (Frank passed young), to Robert M, to Robert F. Hathaway and his sisters Mary and Jane.
