FAIRACRE STOCK FARM, owned by J. P. Thornton. Postoffice address, Moravia, N. Y., R. F. D., No. 6, numbers two hundred and sixty-seven acres, and is located on the Creek road leading from Genoa, six miles south, and fourteen miles north of Auburn, and eight miles of Moravia and Aurora. Stock raising is its feature, special attention being given to Angora goats, Southdown sheep, Berkshire hogs and Durham cattle, while hay, oats, buckwheat and potatoes rank among its soil products. Never-failing springs, streams and wells abound on this farm, and a tract of twenty-five acres, on the east, furnishes a variety of timber. A previous owner was Wayne Gallup, Mr. Thornton coming into possession in 1902, and has been introducing many improvements, which when completed will make the farm one of the best equipped in the county. New Jersey is his native state, and he was married in Joliet, Ill., in 1898 to Miss Blanche Barns of the same place. He was engaged in farming and stock raising in Illinois, and purchased this farm to be in closer touch with the eastern markets.
