1815 Land Transaction Between James Prendergast and Samuel Garfield

This is the earliest land record I have for a Garfield in Chautauqua County.  It references the land bought by Samuel Garfield in the Town of Busti, Chautauqua County, New York State.  Samuel and his family, along with his brother Joseph and his family, continued to live in the area for generations and unto this day you can still find some of his descendants in the area.  Samuel was one of the first three Assessors when the town was formed in 1823.
