Scipio Center History

Welcome to the new blog about Scipio Center, a town in Cayuga County, NY!
I am the Historian, and want to find a way to hear from folks and get some information out there on a regular basis about Scipio. Let me know if you read this, and what you'd like to read about. Anything you'd like me to research?

Have Coughlin ancestors that owed farm on Cork St near Sherwood corner in 1860s-1880s. Has anyone written item concerning the naming of Cork St and exactly from where in County Cork the residents came?

That would be near what was referred to in the early 1900's as Willow Corners.
I'm not aware of anything about the naming of Cork Street, but I'll look into it. If I find something about the origin of Cork Street or the Scipio Coughlin's, I will post to this blog. Thanks for the great idea!
