Notes for GERSHOM BENNETT:
SCHUYLER COUNTY, Chapter LXXV, Early settlement and Organization of
Schuyler County: The first settlement in Tyrone was made in 1798 by
Joshua and Elisha Wixon, who located on the flat near the inlet of Lake
Lamoka. They however, remained by a short time in consequence of their
title being defective. The permanent settlers located in 1800. These
were Gersham, Justus, and Thadeus Bennett, brothers, and Abram and
Justus Jr., Sons of Justus, who settled between the two lakes, on the
site of the village of Weston. They were the first to make any
improvements and cultivate farms. (For detailed history of early
settlements, see town histories.)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The following is from the History of Tioga, Chemung, Tompkins, and
Schuyler Counties: Dated 1879, page 678, received from the Schuyler
County Historical Society: About 1800, Gersham, Justus, and Thadeus
Bennett, brothers, and Abram and Justus Jr. , sons of Justus, from
Orange Co., N.Y., came here and settled on both sides of the creek,
between the two lakes. They took up a large tract of land, some 800
acres, which included the site of Weston village. They were the first
to make any permanent improvement and open cultivated farms. They
brought in horses, farming implements, etc. Their families remained
here until about 1835, when they all removed to Michigan. Abram lived
to be over one hundred years of age; his brother Justus is still living
there, aged about ninety years.
