      Early history of Milford and other parts of Otsego County by Ezra Stevens.. From RootsWeb
      Nathaniel Shelp Family
      Nathaniel Shelp from the Mohawk river settled on a farm adjacent to Caleb Wells and remained on same some time. He sold to Elisha Lyons.

      Shelp was an old Tory of the Revolution, and the old soldiers did not like him very well. Shelp liked liquor, and the old soldiers would get out to Edsons, get him drunk and get him to sing and put tar in his hair and shoes and cut all kinds of capers with him, because he was a Tory. They made a little poetry about him which ran thus:

      "I wonder why old Shelp don't sing
      And make old Jake Edson's Bar-room ring
      And turn his old hat outside in
      And wipe the tobacco juice from his chin?"

      The old fellow sold to Mr. Lyons and was glad to get away alive.
