Notes for DANIEL A HOUSEMAN:
From the 1897 Historical Album of Orleans Co, NY Daniel Houseman, now living, was born 10/5/1802 in Adams, Jefferson Co, NY and came to Yates, NY in 1809 and located on a farm now occupied by his son George, three miles east of Lyndonville, NY (which is now Wellington Stisser's farm). His nearest store was Batavia, and on the Genesee River, the nearest grist-mill. Wild animals had to be killed to supply the family with meat, which boiled and eaten as a substitute for bread, and leeks and other herbs of the forest served for vegetables. A few years ago Daniel moved to Lyndonville where he still resides. Stephen B Johnson, Baruch H Gilbert, Daniel Houseman, Hiram McNeil and John Tyler represented the Town of Yates in the War of 1812.

"Azella Bale, who lives in the old homestead on Maple Av, in the village of Lyndonville, NY, where Daniel and Alletty Houseman lived, followed by their daughter Mrs Sarah Morehouse, followed by her daughter Mrs Nella Joslyn, and at present (1976) her daughter Mrs Azella Bale, who showed me many of the old family belongings, such as a handturned sewing machine used by Alletty Houseman. She also told me that she had an original deed issued for this grant of land in the town of Yates to Houseman from the Holland Land Co. Warren Houseman, who was my grandfather which is now in the hands of Albert my Uncle , operated a dairy farm which was located on the north side of Alps Rd, just west of Greenman Rd. From here he bottled milk under the name of Locust Hill Dairy and peddled it in Lyndonville in he early 1900's. On this farm in 1910 he had the present house built at a cost of $10,000 dollars, which presently is owned by the Richard Oliver family. These records are from family Bibles, newsclippings, and stories I have heard from older famiy members. To my knowledge these facts are as near to truth as possible"
