    History of Royalton, Vermont: With Family Genealogies, 1769-1911, Volume 2 - Page 771
    Timothy Durkee was one of the original grantees of the town. He was in Hanover, N. H., in 1773, when he served as pound keeper, and in 1775 Lieut. Timothy Durkee was one of a committee to procure arms and ammunition. He was a Revolutionary War soldier. He came to Royalton between 1775 and 1779, when he appears on record Mar. 23, as grand juryman. He and his wife appear on the earliest records of the church. They were more liberal in doctrine than the generality of members of that time, and Mr. Durkee afterwards joined a bethel church. He settled on his 260 acres in 53 T. P., one of the finest lots in town. His house stood on the other side of the road from the present house, known as the Edward Rix place. He must have been a stirring, enterprising man. He seems to have given a portion of his land for the burial ground, before the town took any action in the purchase of the N. Royalton cemetery. He was selectman in 1779, but after that date seems to have eschewed politics, through the town meetings were often held at his house. His attention was probably given to improving his land, for in 1792 he has seventy acres improved land, considerably more than any other man in town.
