Note: He was named after his mother's brother. He went to Salanca, New York about 1830 with his father, making the journey with an ox team. They settled first near Watertown, New York where the family had moved from Ct. Then they went to Salanca, later to Syracuse. He saw great changes in his city and central New York in his long lifetime and often spoke of having chopped down the forest where the Syracuse House now stands. In the early days he spent the winters in hauling salt into Canada where he sold it,--quite an extensive business. Crossing was made on the ice of the St. Lawrence River at Cananoque. He was a building mover; had never been ill, and died of old age at the home of his son James in Syracuse.|
