Skeels, Letts, Weatherwax, Hopkins, Powers, Gibbs, and many others. In fact, for intelligence, enterprise and moral worth the early settlers of this town were deservingly conspicuous.

It now has in town and village, (mainly in the latter), seven doctors, one lawyer, four resident clergymen, four organized churches, three church edifices, one railroad depot and freight house, two banking houses, one printing office, one weekly newspaper, one iron foundry, one graded school, eight school-houses and districts.
