MAPLE LAWN is located on the state road, between Moravia and Aurora, five miles distant from the latter. This farm grows an abundance of fruit. Hay, grain and a small dairy are its chief resources. The raising of poultry of nearly all varieties is a feature. The dairy products are delivered at the Elgin Creamery, Poplar Ridge, which is near by. The ownership is vested in J. J. Lock. Postoffice address Aurora, R. F. D. Its name is derived from its beautiful lawn bordered with tall maples. The farm has a southwestern exposure, and from the residence a fine view of Cayuga Lake to the west is obtained. Wells supply water for the buildings, while the fields and stock are accommodated by a stream crossing the farm. The timber is hardwood, of which there are eight acres. A Mr. Macomber was an early resident of the farm and from him the title passed to A. B. Lock, thence to J. J. Lock, the present occupant, in 1892. He is a native of Cayuga County, born in 1863 and married to Miss J. Searing, of California, in 1891. Their family consists of one daughter. Mr. Lock is considered an up-to-date farmer and a believer in modern improvements and machinery.
