The records of some of the very first settlers are lost like those of Ozias Cone which I have from Family Records, and who came to Sect. 17 around 1790, The first to show on Town records is that of his son Warren. So, when I have found a son born around the first Settler years, the son's name must take the place of the father.

These names lacking the Sect. No. upon which they settled must Indicate that they lived In Gorham or Seneca Township, and if we were to search those Township Records, there we might find their names.
