SUMMIT VIEW FARM is the property of John Bruton. Postoffice address, Moravia, R. F. D. It consists of eighty acres on Lot 75, six miles from Moravia, nine from Aurora, and sixteen from Auburn. The farm is mostly devoted to the raising of grain, vegetables, etc., to which its soil is especially adapted; it also has an abundance of fruit consisting of apples, pears, cherries, plums and other varieties. The location overlooks the valley of Salmon Creek. James Walker, the first owner given in the record, sold to J. B. Young, who transferred the title to the present owner in 1883.

Mr. Bruton also owns "Spring Valley Farm," located on Lot 75 and consisting of ninety acres. The former owner was John G. Reynolds, of whom it was purchased by Mr. Bruton in 1902. Great improvement has taken place in these properties since they came into the possession of Mr. Bruton, both in soil cultivation and buildings. There is a large barn on the latter place, with a fine basement, and all buildings are kept in good repair. There is running water for stock, and barns and residence are supplied with pure water from wells. There are ten acres of hardwood timber, and the latter farm supports an excellent dairy, the products of which are taken to the skimming station one mile distant. Mr. Bruton was born in Ireland in 1849, emigrating to Cayuga County in 1871. He was married to Miss Ann Colgan in 1877; their family consists of six children, two sons and four daughters, all living.
