TOWN OF AURELIUS AND CAYUGA COUNTY

........... spot of ground which now comprises the several wards of the city of Auburn, has, since the State came into possession of the land, at various times, constituted a part of many of the civil divisions of the territory. It has been in four counties and three towns.

After the War of the Revolution Auburn, or the land upon which it is seated, was nearly in the center of the great Tryon county, which included fully one-half of the state of New York. The first sub-division soon after was the erection of Herkimer county, which included Cayuga county and a long stretch from this point both eastward and westward. Later another division established Onondaga county and finally March 8, 1799, Cayuga county was set off from Onondaga. The village then had not more than four or five hundred population but it was growing from year to year by accessions of substantial and progressive citizens. At the first meeting in the fall of 1810 to consider the proposition, a committee was appointed to solicit subscriptions to a building fund, the shares in the fund to be twenty dollars each. William Bostwick, Dr. Hackaliah Burt, and
David Brinkerhoff were named a committee to secure the amount necessary to go forward with the undertaking. Two hundred and five shares were soon taken and on the fifth day of December of that year the projectors proceeded to effect an organization, known as the Auburn School Association. The first board of trustees were Elijah Miller, David Buck, David Hyde, Noah Olmstead, Joseph L. Richardson, John H. Cumpston, John Sawyer, Jehial Clark, and David Horner. Robert Dill then contributed five acres and three-quarters of land along the present Garden street. In consideration of this transfer of land, Mr. Dill received fifty shares of the association.

During the immediate succeeding years from 1803 there were many changes in business projects and also many additions, both in mercantile and industrial
lines. John Cumpston became a resident of the village and
purchased the original James O'Brien store located on the present City Hall grounds. He carried on the business there for some time. He also became prominent in other lines.

1812 - The artillery company was organized by Capt. Thomas Mumford, and at the time of the War was in command of Capt. John H. Cumpston. Many of these men saw actual service at Niagara Falls and other points in that vicinity.
