    Notes 
    • From the History of the City of Paterson and the County of Passaic:
      Under the tuition of friendly Indians, Halmagh became an expert fisherman, and it is said that he caught as many as seven hundred shad in one day, in the Falls basin. He kept tavern, 1813-14-15-16, in the stone house at the northwest corner of Totowa and Paterson avenues, which he probably built. Advertising the place for sale in 1816 he describes it as "a farm of 32 acres near the Passaic Great Falls; there is on said farm a good two story dwelling house which has been occupied as a tavern for a number of years, a barn and an elegant spring of water near the door, orchard, etc. It is in sight of the Falls."
