1807 Census

Town of Richland

The following census of the town of Richland, Oswego Co., was taken from a paper found in the miscellaneous room of the library in Albany State Capitol.  As this room suffered the most in the fire that later burnt out the library, it is probable the original has been destroyed, although I never inquired.


Richland in 1807 included the present town of Albion, Orvill, Boyleston, Sandy Creek, Richland and the northern and northeast sections of Mexico.
