  • Notes 
    • About 1820 Lindall Wilder and his father came in and settled west of the village. The former died in Scriba in December, 1885, aged ninety-two. The year 1820 also marks the settlement of the Salisbury family in Sandy Creek, where three generations have been prominent and influential. The first corners of the name were Reuben, sr., and his son, Reuben, jr. The latter, born in Vermont. December 21, 1799, built a mill at Hadley's Glen and another at Lacona, and moved thence to near Petersburg, Va., where he purchased a farm. He was a deacon of the Baptist church. Hiring slaves, he allowed them in the room while he read the Bible and prayed, and in consequence -excitement ran high. His neighbors, organizing a party, searched his house and ordered him to leave the country, which he did, leaving his farm from which he never realized anything. He returned to Sandy Creek and died March 4, 1874. Mason Salisbury 2d, born in 1810, was active in the "underground railroad," was a miller, served as justice of the peace several years and as assemblyman, and died in March, 1877. His son M. J. served two years in the Rebellion and now conducts the grist mill in Sandy Creek, which he rebuilt in i885. Near the site his father remodeled an old mill, which finally passed to M. J. Salisbury and was burned in December, 1884. Dea. Enos Salisbury, born in Vermont in 1806 came here at an early day, married first, Rebecca Tuttle and second, Esther W. Alton, and died December 13, 1894. He was a member of the Baptist church fifty-seven years and served most of the time as deacon. Benjamin F. Salisbury, son of Nathan, was born here in 1824 and died September 16, 1885. His father was an early tavernkeeper on the north side of the creek in the village and was succeeded by his son. The hotel was burned in 1884.
