Early settlers in the Town of Cazenovia taken from "1784 History of
Chenango & Madison Counties, NY" by James H Smith; pub. 1880. Tried to use

derives its name from Theophilus Cazenove, the first agent of the Holland
Land Company. It originally embraced an extent of territory nearly equalling

Georgetown, German, Lincklaen, Otselic and Pitcher, was taken off March 15,
1798; Sullivan, then embracing the town of Lenox, Feb. 22, 1803; Smithfiled,
