We received a nice packet of information about some early Scipio settlers (Scipioans? Scipioites?) Elisha and Hannah Durkee. Elisha came to Scipio in 1791, settling a quarter mile north of Bolt's Corners. In 1798, Elisha was Scipio Town Clerk and in 1810, our Supervisor.
There is a Society of Genealogy of Durkee, Inc., and they sent us the information that will be on display in our History Corner next week for any curious descendants!
