    Notes:

    The son of Cornelius and Nancy DeLong, in 1853 the family moved to Boylston, Oswego county, the conveyance being an ox team. It took three days to make the journey, the first night being spent at Pamelia Four Corners and the second at Adams. When the Hagan corner was reached the route lay east to the Wart tavern and then south to the Archer Corners. From this to Smartville, where the DeLongs settled was an unbroken wilderness with but one family, that of David McDougal, who lived on the Jennings hill. A.W. Fuller was the nearest neighbor on the the north.

    Mr. DeLong's parents settled on a farm just this side (west of) of Smartville, now owned by Ward Mead. At least two
    trips were necessary, by ox team, from the North Country to secure the household effects. Mr. DeLong and his sons, Charles H., aged 19, Philando, aged 16 and Vincent, aged 11, had come to their new homestead of the mother and daughters, and erected a log house, leaving their ox team and boarding at the David McDougal home on the brow of Jennings hill. At this time there was no family residing east of what is now known as Smartville, except possibly a Frenchman who was located where the LeNore mill stood later. He made shingles and had several ponies which he drove singly on slips and he would come down with several of these slips one trailing behind- the other, loaded with shingles, which he would sell for isix shillings a thousand. The wood and timber were of no account and this was logged and burned. This section wa s
    very heavily timbered with hard wood and ridges of hemlock.

    Philando DeLong recalled that it was among the heaviest he ever saw. One birch with arms extending sixty feet each way when cut opened up the forest on all sides. The first winter the DeLongs cleared eighteen or nineteen acres, and with an ax, corn was put into the ground and grew immense crops. Large stands of timothy and grain were later cut on this new land in the first years, which recompensed for the hard labor andgave promise of abundant yields in years to come, which, however, have in later years failed to materialize. Now we are liable to blame the climate and say it is impossible to raise abundant crops in this section,
    owing to the early frosts.
