Early History of Friends in Cayuga County, New York


This historical sketch of the early history of Friends in Cayuga County, New York, was read by Miss Emily Howland before the Cayuga County Historical Society on April 8, 1880. It covers the years 1795 through 1828. This volume opens with a brief biographical sketch of George Fox, followed by an examination of his followers, together with a glimpse of their daily life, their places and forms of worship, their schools, and their businesses. Names pepper every page, and an appendix offers a chronologically grouped listing of members added to the Scipio Monthly meeting of Friends (1808-1821). A full name index completes this work.
