INDIAN GLEN FARM, consisting of one hundred and forty-four acres, owned by John Young, whose address is Union Springs, R. F. D. Its location is on the Gully road, extending east to the town line, on Lot 113. Union Springs is five miles distant. The soil products consist of hay and grain, while dairying and the raising of sheep and swine furnish a large per cent. of the farm's resources. Butter is made for the local markets. The name is derived from the fact that this is one of the locations used by the Indians for raising corn, the entire crop of which was destroyed by General Sullivan at the time of his raid. Numerous Indian relics have been discovered and preserved by Mr. Young. The building improvements have been made by the present owner, who is one of the progressive farmers of his town. The prospect from the residence is delightful, and the display of flowers and hedges add not a little to the attractiveness of this fine farm. Wells at the house and a never-failing spring for the use of the barns and stock supply abundance of water. There are twelve acres of mixed timber. Allen Morgan was the first owner given by the record, from him to Giles Slocum, (?) [sic] thence to John VanLiew, and from him to the present owner in 1867. Mr. Young is a native of England, born December, 1832. He married Miss Sarah Cumber, also a native of England, in 1852, and emigrated to America in 1857, settling at Union Springs. He has been a resident of Cayuga County since the date of his settlement, with the exception of one year spent in Philadelphia. His family consists of five children - three sons and two daughters - all living.

Mr. Young is an Elder of the Presbyterian Church at Scipio.
