Appendix G of Centennial Historical Sketch of Fayette, Seneca Co., NY 1800-1900 by Diedrich Willers [Press of W.F. Humphrey, Geneva, NY, 1900; reprinted by W.E. Morrison & Co., Ovid, NY, 1982]

      "This list is copied from a volume entitled 'Notes and Queries,' published by Dr. Wm. H. Egle, State Librarian of Pennsylvania at Harrisburg, in 1898.
      The names of transient residents are omitted, also the names of foreign born Germans.
      It will be observed that the name of each family occurs only once - the name of the father, if he removed here being given, or the oldest or most prominent member of the family, when the father did not locate.
      The list of names is not entirely complete, but may be useful for reference:"
