OAKLAND COUNTY

Joseph Eddy emigrated originally from far up the Hudson river and settled near Auburn, N. Y. He lived here until pride, as he termed it, began to dot the country with frame housen. He then moved to Alle-ghany county, same state. Here he resided until there were too many openings in the woodlands, too much talk about "frame housen," and too much pride. He packed up again, and at the end of a tedious journey reached Wayne county, N. Y., where he settled near Sodus bay. Here he remained some time, but by and by emigration poured in; the scenes around his early home were re-enacted, "frame housen" began to appear and pride to show itself in other and, to him, offensive ways. Then, with a troubled heart at the long journey before him, but not a regret for the home which advancing civilization had rendered so distasteful, he repacked his household goods, gathered his large family around him. and started on his long journey to the far west.
