A Mr. Cortright is recorded as a previous owner, followed by his son Abram Cortright, from him to Daniel Truman in 1836, who resided here until his death in 1845, when it remained an estate, until the majority of the youngest son, when it was transferred to the present incumbent, who has added to the original purchase and is entitled to the credit of equipping it with adequate improvements, buildings, etc. Mr. Truman is a native of Cayuga County, born in 1827.
