    Notes 
    • In an account of the 90th birthday of Alvirus Stedman, it says that Joshua came to Cortland County, NY, from Massachusetts, rather than Connecticut, in 1804, and settled in South Cortland.  "He cleared up land and built him a log house and Alvirus was born in 1806 and has spent all of his life in this immediate neighborhood.  At the time his father came here, there were woods nearly all of the way to Cortland.  The wolves at the time were numerous... Mr. Stedman said they could hear them howl every night in the swamp back of their house...  In 1829, Mr. Stedman purchased the farm near South Cortland...."

      In the 1835 State census, there were listed 3 males, 2 females, and 1 voter.
