MAPLE STREET FARM, consisting of one hundred and forty acres, is owned by J. W. Booker, whose address is Genoa, R. F. D. Its location is on the Big Salmon Creek Road, seven miles from Moravia and Locke respectively, twelve miles from Aurora, and eighteen to Auburn. Here will be found a dairy, the products of which are conveyed to Genoa, one mile distant. A large flock of Merino sheep, some fine horses, and a well cultivated fruit orchard are features of the farm. The location is claimed to be one of the best in the town, and is beautified by a row of hardwood maples, which suggested the name, as here given. Its barns are modern and well equipped for stock. There is a sixty-foot basement under the main barn. Wells supply water for the residence, while springs and streams furnish water for the farm and stock. Its timber consists of fifteen acres of hard wood. The farm is ably managed, and ranks among the best of the town. Its record of ownership names Daniel Whipple as a previous owner, and from him to John Booker, who resided on and near the farm until his death, when the title passed to his son, the present incumbent, who is a native of the county, born in 1850. Mr. Booker married Matilda Weaver, of Tomkins (sic) County, N. Y., in 1881.
