    Notes 

    • Excerpt from "History of Broome County, New York": His father was Nathaniel Slosson, of Berkshire, Mass. He married Julia Ann De Witt, born in Fenton in 1807, married in 1832; she died in 1844. Her father was Abraham De Witt, who was an early settler and died in 1831..... Mr. Slosson is one of the pioneers of Broome county. He was in his younger days in active business, and learned the trade of cloth dresser and carried on the business for eighteen years in the then village of Binghamton, at what was then known as Lewis Mills. Mr. S. retired upon his farm in 1850, where he hwas ever since resided. Mr. S. is a man of strong mind and sound judgment, and is universally respected for his firm adherence of principles he believes to be right. He is now in the possession of allhis faculties and appears to wear the years with as good grace as most men do at sixty or seventy years. Although nearly eight-five years have come and gone, he has lived to see this county grow from a howling wilderness to one of great prosperity, and the now city of Binghamton, containing a population of 20,000 people, has come to such from a small hamlet of which he can well remember. Truly he is one of the early pioneers of old Broome county, and has kept alove the memories of this county during all its changes.
