In Reply to: Re: Paris Hill, in Oneida County, NY? by Allan Reader of 2271

Hi Allan,

The book was republished in 1977 and again in 1993 by North Country Books, Inc. Utica, New York. Their address is not printed in the book but I'm sure they are listed in the Yellow Pages, Switchboard, Big Yellow, etc.

There are no Readers (or similar spellings) listed in the index, it is "reasonably" complete. There is mentioned a Benjamin, Daniel and a Thomas Morris.

Benjamin is listed as being admitted to the "old Amicable Lodge, No. 25, F. & A. M., of New Hartford, (formerly Whitestown,) chartered April 7, 1792" in 1796. He is not otherwise mentioned.

Daniel is listed as being admitted to the "Saquoit Lodge, No. 150, F. and A. M." on 26 April 1872, no other mention.

Mention of Thomas Morris is as follows:
"One Thomas Morris had purchased a large tract of land where the present village of Morrisville now stands, and he at once set about getting settlers to come from New England into what was then the far West, and clear up and make homes upon his land." This would have been prior to 1790. There is no other mention of him in this publication but I'm sure more would be written about him if you researched the history of the town of Morrisville.
