Also that of Joseph Blackmer, Esq., Lydia Parkman (who moved to Westmoreland in 1790). He made use of the history by Joshua V. H. Clark, Esq., of Manlius; two lectures by William Tracy, Esq.; two lectures by Hon. O. S. Williams; a number of "anniversary sermons" preached in the County which gave details of local history; and "a native of Oneida county, born in the year 1789, and not once having changed his residence."
