Damascus Manor, Alsup Vail Tyler. Written by Tyler in the 1920's, published in 1936, and republished by Equinunk Historical Society in 1986. We first hear about Damascus Manor in 1755 when Joseph Skinner and Moses Thomas came from Connecticut to Cushetunk on a tour of investigation. It is probable, however, that Thomas came much earlier. In a few years, there were more Connecticut people in this area along the Delaware. It seems that there are many descendants of those early Connecticut settlers still within the confines of Damascus Manor, or very near to it.
