    • In February, 1826, [Christopher Martin] with his wife and one child, - Otis, - removed to the State of New York and settled on a location now comprised in the village of Cleveland, then mostly a wilderness, and commenced in the woods to clear him a farm. Here they enjoyed the comforts as well as some of the privations of new-settlement life. Here the deer rambled within sight of his door; and here, also, close at hand, was the beautiful Lake Oneida, from which plenty of fish could be obtained, including some of the best varieties, as salmon, bass, pike, etc. They considered those who lived within four or five miles their immediate neighbors.
