The year was 1799 AD. Four brothers named Andrew, John, Samuel, and Daniel Millet left their homes in Connecticut, traveled west and became the first settlers in what is now the hamlet of Walworth. There they built crude log cabins, the first dwellings in Walworth. Daniel soon moved on to Ohio where he died in a fatal hunting accident. Andrew became mentally deranged from his concern that the world would soon be without wood, as trees were being cut in such vast numbers, and, not wanting to live in such a place, hanged himself. The other two brothers, Samuel and John, lived on in the growing community until their death many years later.
