ORCHARD LAWN, on the State Road from Albany to Aurora, five miles from the latter, three-quarters of a mile from Poplar Ridge, will be found the fertile, well-cultivated and improved farm of William W. Hazard, whose Postoffice address is Poplar Ridge. It comprises seventy-five acres, devoted to grain and dairy products; milk from the dairy is delivered at the Elgin Creamery at Poplar Ridge. Mr. Hazard also owns two small farms on Lot 70, which are called "The Meadows." The name of the home is derived from the shaded lawn and approach to the residence. The location is like many others throughout the County, picturesque, giving a pleasing view of lake, hill and valley. Water is supplied by wells and cisterns for the buildings. There is a timber lot of three acres. J. Wood was the previous owner and is credited with the manufacture of the first cast-iron plow, and the building in which it was made is still standing. From him the title passed to Abram Willett, thence to Wheeler Powell, who disposed of the property to William R. Hazard, who lived here until his death. One year after this occurrence the property came into the possession of the present owner, who was born in Duchess County, New York,1843, settling in Cayuga County in 1857, and married Miss Rebecca Haight in 1888. Their family consists of one daughter. Mrs. Hazard deceased 1889.
