NOAH PALMER, SR.

        Was born in Brantford, Conn., in the year 1764.  When he was seven years old his father died in Connecticut, about the beginning of the Revolutionary War.  As early as 1790 he came from Brantford to Cazenovia, and bought a place with Col. Lincklaen in 1797, in Pompey, near Oran, now owned by his grand-son Daniel D. Palmer.  Upon this farm he lived thirty-eight years.  After he died his son Noah owned it thirty-six years.  He was a nail maker, and worked for Col. Lincklaen at that business for five or six years.  It is said he made the first nails that were used in building in the town of Pompey.  He died in the year 1835, upon the land which he purchased in 1797, in Pompey; his son Noah succeeding him in the title to the estate.  Two of his children, Noah and Martha, were born in Pompey, and these are both now (1874) dead.  One daughter Mrs. Edmund Thomas, is living.  Mr. Palmer was of that type of manhood whose stern and unyielding integrity bears fruit, in the years when his form lies silent in the grave, of whom it may be justly said, "Tho' dead he yet speaks."
