From USGen, Oswego county, web site: "Parish was nothing but woodlands with maple, pine and elm trees. At that time the water was, pure and full of salmon and many other kinds of fish. Parish was part of the Onondaga hunting grounds. Even though no Indians lived here, many came here hunting and fishing. On March 1, 1788, the chief of the Onondaga Indian tribe sold all their lands but the reservation in Syracuse to a Mr. Macomb. For several years after that the land now known as Oswego County was sold a number of times. In December of 1794, a Dutch man, George Scriber bought the land. Mr. Scriber's home can still be seen in Cleveland NY. It is the oldest house in Oswego County. He built a road from Cleveland (called New Rotterdam) to New Haven (Vera Cruz) . Part of that road that can still be seen is right here in Parish."

He has entered into the rest that remains for the people of God. His funeral was attended by the G.A.R., at Rapid City in the Methodist church, where the services were held. It was conducted by members of Col. Baker Post of Kalkaska, and the body was interred in Evergreen cemetery at that place, Rev. R. Towers officiating." [G.A.R. = Grand Army of the Republic]

Biographical History of Northern Michigan: "Charles Van Buren. The history of Kalkaska county is not a very old one. It is the record of the steady growth of a community planted in the wilderness within the last half century and has reached its magnitude of today without other aids than those of industry. The people who redeemed its wilderness fastnesses were strong-armed, hardy sons of the soil who hesitated at no difficulty and for whom hardships had little to appall. The early pioneers, having blazed the path of civilization to this part of the state, finished their labors and passed from the scene, leaving the country to the possession of their descendants and to others who came at a later period and builded on the foundation which they laid so broad and deep. Among the latter class is the prominent farmer and enterprising citizen by whose name this article is introduced. While his arrival was not as early as some, yet he came in the fomative period and has done much to develop the wonderful resources of a county that now occupies a proud position among the progressive and enlightened sections of Michigan. Charles Van Buren was born in Otsego, Otsego County, New York, on the 3d of January, 1840, and is the son of Martin and Catherine (Pickens) VanBuren, both also natives of the Empire state. They were the parents of eleven children, eight sons and three daughters, of which family the subject was the fifth child in order of birth. Both parents died when about the age of eighty years, the father's death occurring in Oswego county, New York, and the mother's in Allegany county, that state. When Charles VanBuren was a small boy the family removed to Oswego, New York, where he was reared to manhood on his father's farm and where he secured a good education in the common schools. In August, 1862, when the fires of rebellion were burning fiercely in the South and the nation's integrity was jeopardized, Mr. VanBuren offered his services and enlisted in Company K, One Hundred and Tenth Regiment, New York Volunteer Infantry, with which command he served about one year, when he was discharged because of physical disability. His regiment was under the command of General Banks and participated in the battle at Port Hudson and in the Red River campaign, besides many other minor engagements and other arduous duties. Returning home, Mr. VanBuren engaged in farming and so continued until the spring of 1882, when he came to Michigan and settled on the farm which he now owns, and which is located in section 13, Clearwater township, Kalkaska county. His first purchase was forty acres of timber land, to which he added later eighty acres, but subsequently disposed of the latter tract, after partially clearing it. The present farmstead has been cleared by the subject and he now has thirty acres in active cultivation, raising all the crops common to this lattitude, and he also gives some special attention to fruit culture, having about five acres planted to apple and plum trees, which have proved a source of considerable profit to the owner. Mr. VanBuren has erected tasty and substantial buildings on the place and all departments of the enterprise receive his careful and thoughtful attention. On June 12, 1861, at Oswego, New York. Mr. VanBuren was married to Miss Mary E. Scriber, who was born in Oswego county, New York, May 22, 1845, and is a daughter of Stephen and Olive (Palmer) Scriber, both natives of New York state. The father died in Onondago county, New York, at the age of seventy-six years, and the mother's death occurred in Traverse City, Michigan, when sixty-two years old. Of their familty of six childern, Mrs. VanBuren was the second born. She was reared in Oswego county, New York, and there received her education. Mr. and Mrs. VanBuren are the parents of six childern, namely: Alice A. is the wife of Charles Manley; Charles E.; Eva M. is the wife of Jacob Buckle; Walter F.; Lulu B. is the wife of Edd D. Rugg; Grant G. Mr. VanBuren has taken an active part in the public affairs of his township and has served four years as justice of the peace, two years as highway commissioner, and also as member of the board of review and in several of the school offices. Fraternally, he is a member of Colonel Baker Post, No. 84, Grand Army of the Republic, while religiously, he and his wife are active members of the Methodist Episcopal church. Mr. VanBuren is a progressive farmer and for years he had been a close and careful student of agricultural science, being familiar with the nature of soils and their adaptabilty to the various crops, besides knowning by practical experience how to obtain the most satisfactory results from the labor and time expended. He is well known in this section and has so ordered his life as to gain the respect and confidence of all with whom he has been brought in contact."
