ORCHARD GROVE. This farm was originally divided into five farms and has four sets of buildings. The first farm, purchased by Mr. Isaac P. Hazard, contained thirty-two acres, bought of J. R. Howland in 1872. In 1886 he purchased a farm of sixty-nine acres of Isaac Meekeel, and through his executors and heirs of George Meekeel. In 1891 he purchased two pieces of land, one of forty-one and one-half acres, of John C. Peckham, and one of twenty acres of Mary S. Peckham. In 1894 another purchase of thirty-six acres was made of J. McCormic, making a total of one hundred and ninety-eight and one-half acres, which is located on the Ridge road and the road running west from Wheeler's Corners. It is one mile from Poplar Ridge, six from Aurora, and fifteen from Auburn. A new trolley line borders the farm. This is one of the fine farms of Cayuga County, having a fertile soil, and its products consisting mostly of wheat, oats, barley, hay and dairying. There are ten wells, which supply an abundance of pure water for stock, buildings and farm purposes, and a wood lot of seven acres.
