GRAND VIEW STOCK FARM, owned by C. W. Bennett, postoffice address, King Ferry, N. Y., R. F. D, comprises fifty acres and is located on Bennett Hill Road, running from the Little Salmon to Indian Field Road. Auburn is sixteen miles distant, Genoa four, Aurora eight, and Moravia nine miles. A variety of fruits are grown at "Grand View," including apples, peaches, pears, plums, cherries and small fruits. Stock and dairying comprise the principal resources. Mr. Bennett operates a cream separator, and supplies butter to the different markets. The buildings of "Grand View" are surrounded by shade and evergreen trees; it derives its name from the location which commands a view of Big Salmon Valley to the east. The fertile soil is well adapted to the raising of all products common to this section of the State. The house and barns are supplied with water from never-failing wells, and there are four acres of hardwood timber. Mr. Harrison Andrews, a previous owner, sold to Daniel Kratzer and from him it came to the present owner in 1890. Mr. Bennett is a native of Cayuga County, born 1838; married Miss Phoebe S. Andrews, also a native of the county, in 1861; their family consists of four children, two sons and two daughters. Mr. Bennett is a wide-awake farmer, as evidenced by the general appearance of his farm.
