ANTHONY HOMESTEAD derives its name from its early settler, John Anthony. The present owner, Hicks Anthony, was born on the farm in 1827, where he has since resided. He was married in 1848 to Miss Jane Larue, a native of Cayuga County. The family consists of two daughters, one the wife of Charles G. Adams, of Auburn, and Miss Mary Anthony of Ledyard. Mr. Anthony is one of the leading men of his town, has held many offices of trust, having been Justice of the Peace for forty years and Supervisor for seven years. His farm consisting of one hundred and thirty acres, on Lots 128 and 134, is located on the Scipio road to Lavanna, within four miles of Aurora and fourteen of Auburn. Its apple orchard and small fruits, its dairy, and the many products raised, add to the resources of the farm. The location is most delightful, the buildings and lawn, which are surrounded by a fine evergreen hedge, indicate the intelligence and industry bestowed upon the management of the place. It has a southwestern exposure, overlooking Cayuga Lake for many miles. There are fifteen acres of hardwood timber, and the water is supplied from wells and never-failing springs.
