Collection contains papers documenting public and private institutions and the lives of individuals in Cazenovia, N.Y. from the late 18th through the early 20th centuries. Personal papers, 1791-1927, include correspondence, accounts, legal documents, family records, and printed matter concerning John Lincklaen, Samuel S. Forman, Jonathan D. Ledyard, Ledyard Lincklaen, Sidney Fairchild, Charles S. and Helen Fairchild, and other members of local families. Public and private institutional records, 1794-1868, consist of materials which chiefly document political and judicial affairs in Cazenovia and Madison County. A significant portion of the collection is the records, 1803-1877, of the Cazenovia and Chittenango Turnpike Road Company and the Third Great Western Turnpike Road Company.
