I just found your wonderful information on the Colden Mansion. I grew up in Whitestone, Queens, NY and Judge Charles Colden was a vestryman of the church I attended. The church, Grace Episcopal, is located on land once owned by Francis Lewis. As a junior history major in college I read part of Colden's excellent writings on the Iroquois Confederacy. As a senior honors student one of my projects was a study of Cadwallader Colden. When my mother told Mrs. Colden about my work she invited me to come to her home and gave me access to many family documents about Cadwallader Colden. Another excellent source of primary information is the NY Historical Society.

Cadwallader Colden contributed so much in so many areas to Colonial America. I am glad that study of his life and work is still going on.

Thank you for stopping by. Cadwallader Colden was an interesting man who was very much a part of our colonial history. Preserving our history, informs and educates generations.
