    Notes:

    Name:
    "History of Cattaraugus Co., New York: with illustrations and biographical sketches of some of its prominent men and pioneers":

    SILAS SLAWSON was born in Penn Yan, N.Y., in 1814, and with his father moved to Hanover, Chautauqua Co., New York in 1822, where he resided until 1866, when he removed to Perrysburg, in this county, where his home has continued to be. In 1856 under the act authorizing the district in this State, Mr. Slawson was selected for the second district of Cattaraugus County. He had previously been a successful teacher; and entered upon the work of this responsible office with enthusiasm, and continued performing its duties with untiring energy during the term of nearly three years. As soon as his round of examination of, and granting certificates to, teachers was completed, he commenced visiting the schools, aiding in creating new districts or consolidating old ones, and harmonizing differences as they occurred. He was emphatically a worker; continually on the move from school to school in the eighteen towns comprising the Assembly district; imparting his energy to teachers, urging them to greater effort in their honorable profession, and inspiring pupils with the importance and necessity of education. It is not too much to say that no commissioner has since excelled him; and, also we state the fact that he held the Teachers' Institutes, with his associate commissioners of the first district, during his term. He has filled several positions of public trust in his towns with intelligence and strict integrity.

    Mr. Slawson and his wife are now enjoying the fruits of an industrious life, - - a pleasant home in the village of Perrysburg, with a competency honestly acquired, - respected by their neighbors and numerous acquaintances.

    Newton Slawson was a teacher several years, justice of the peace twelve years, is a thriving farmer in Perrysburg, and with his wife, who is an intelligent lady, are living in a pleasant home, wit good surroundings, and both are highly respected. He twice offered his services to the Government as a soldier in the war for the Union, but was rejected on account of physical disability. Intent upon sharing in the responsibilities of the war, he furnished a "representative recruit" who served in his stead during its continuance. He enjoys the confidence of his townsmen.

    Samuel E. Slawson was a merchant in Perrysburg for several years, and is now in the same business at Bradford, Pa. He owns a good farm in Hanover, and is in flourishing circumstances. His wife is a lady of cultivation, a successful teacher of music. They are happily situated and are highly respected.

    Mr. Slawson's grandmother was a twin sister of Col. E. A. Nash's great-grandfather, Silas Nash, and they were born in Hartford, Conn., in 1765 Mr. Slawson was reared under the roof of his venerated grandmother, and he attributes his habits of study, thrift, and industry to her watchful care, kindness, moral teachings, and energy....

    Silas married Temperance Lurancy HOPPER 10 Mar 1836, Hanover, New York. Temperance (daughter of Deacon Nathaniel HOPPER and Fannie Lucretia TAYLOR) was born 21 May 1816; died 17 Apr 1883, Perrysburg, Cattaraugus County, New York; was buried Forestville Pioneer Cemetery, Forestville, Chautauqua Co., New York.
