From the History of Jericho, VT . Russell French and his ancestors resided in school district No. 2. Business has changed in that locality. A short distance south of where the French family lived there was a small collection of houses, two blacksmith shops and a factory, and it has been named and known as Muttonville. About the year 1820 there was a mill built on Mill Brook near that place, where people brought the cloth manufactured on their handlooms to be fulled and pressed. This mill was operated by a Mr. Reed. The mill was later made into a starch factory that purchased potatoes at 12 cents per bushel and manufactured them into starch. The building was afterwards owned by Dea. John T. Clapp and son, Rollin M. Later Henry Woodford put in a turning lathe for woodwork, and Rollin M. Clapp manufactured hand rakes, being succeeded by Augustus S. Wood, who manu-factured rakes, mop handles, clothes bars and many other kinds of useful wood articles. The factory and shops have been destroyed by fire or taken down, and no business is done there at the present time.

In Ripton CT on 30 Jan 1835 land was surveyed for David French of Potsdam, St. Lawrence Co., NY, 160 acres to the right of John French. David French, who purchased land in Potsdam in 1803, came a few years later and settled about midway between Potsdam village and Canton, where he was a successful farmer, and kept a public house from 1819 for more than thirty years. David fought 7 years in the American Revolution which took a toll on his health. He died November 15, 1854.
David French signed an Article of Agreement for one hundred acres of land in 1803. The land was part of the Clarkson Tract. This area became known as South Potsdam and "French's".
David and Sally Tupper French built a log cabin in 1805 and moved into the family home (next door) in 1815. It became a tavern, stagecoach stop, post office, polling place, and community center. Dances were held there Saturday nights and "hell and damnation" sermons were held there on Sundays. The French Family Farm is in the National Register of Historic Places.
The "1844 House" was built originally as a farm hand's house, circa 1844, by Ira T. French, David's son. Later the house was sold to William Perry French, a son of Ira's. He expanded the building and had a general store and community hall. When the stagecoach ceased, the polling place and post office were moved to Will's General Store.
William French sold the property in 1885. It went through many subsequent owners. Sally T.S. Dingsoyr (sixth generation) and Gigi J. Scheiber bought the house in 1985 and converted it into a restaurant. It opened as "French's 1844 House" on February 28, 1986 and featured French influenced Continental Cuisine and closed in 2001.
After 5 years of “hibernation” the restaurant was “re-awakened” by husband and wife team Brian A. & Jenny Drake Walker In February 2006. Both are professionally trained Chefs and career hospitality professionals. Brian was trained at The Culinary Institute of America and The Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale, and Jenny was trained at The New England Culinary Institute. See Brian & Jenny Walker, Proprietors ~ 6885 SR 11 Potsdam, NY 13676 ~ Phone (315) 268-1844 | Fax (315) 265-4751.
