  • Notes 
    • Evidently George Washington really did make his Dobbs Ferry headquarters, July-August 1781, at the home of this Joseph Appleby. "George Washington made the Joseph Appleby house his headquarters, in present-day Hartsdale, about half a mile north of the old Dobbs ferry road (the part we now call Heatherdale Road) and a few yards north of the Hartsdale-Ardsley border, near the summit of a small hill, still known by old-timers in the community as Washington's Hill. The Appleby house no longer stands." [George Washington's Westchester Gamble: The Encampment on the Hudson & the Trapping of Cornwallis by Richard Borkow. Charleston and London: The History Press, 2011.]

      Joseph Appleby served as a 2nd lieutenant in the First Regiment of Westchester County, New York Militia.
