"WEST MONROE.



West Monroe was formed from Constantia March 21,
1839. It is situated upon the north shore of Oneida lake,
southeast of the centre of the county. The southern por-
tion of the town is (with the exception of a small tract
upon the bank of the lake) a wild, swampy res^ion, wholly
unfit for cultivation. One of these marshes covers a sur-
face of upwards of one thousand acres, a considerable por-
tion of which produces cranberries. The northern part of
the town is wild, broken, and stony, and is but thinly settled.

The principal building stone is the red, or Medina, sand-
stone, which crops out along the valleys. An iron ore has
been discovered in the northern part of the town, and it is
said th;it traces of lead and silver have also been found.
The soil is a sandy loam, which sometimes produces good
crops of wheat and corn, but is better adapted to grazing.

Until the past few years there were two post-offices
within the town. That at Union Settlement ha.s been dis-
continued, and the only one remaining is at West Monroe
station, on the New York and Oswego Midland railroad,
south of the centre of the town. The principal business
of the inhabitants is that of lumbering.

The first settlement was made in 18U6, by Martin Owens,
Abel Ames, Joseph B. Ames, Ebcnezer Loouiis, and Syl-
vanus Alien. Martin Owens came from Fabius, Onondaga
county, and located upon the farms now occupied by Mrs.
Oyer and Mr. Julius Beardsley. Mr. Owens remained an
inhabitant of West Monroe until the year 1847, when he
moved to the State of Wisconsin, where he died a few years
later. Abel Ames settled upon the farm owned at present
by Mr. John Slocomb. He died in the town in the year
1844, leaving four sons, one of whom is still living. Joseph
B. Ames was without a family ; he lived with his brother
Abel for a number of years.

Ebenezer Loomis located upon the farm now occupied by



Hinim Rea. He lived upon the old place until 1830, when
he moved to Cieero, Onondaga county, where he died. Syl-
vanus Allen was a native of Shelburne, Massachusetts. He
