Town of LaFayette Clerk Archival Records Listing

The Town of LaFayette was formed on April 15, 1825. It was named after the Marquis de La Fayette, who was passing through here at that time in early June. He was a young and wealthy french statesman and general. The Town is part of the Military Tracts awarded to Revolutionary Soldiers of that era. Part of the town was bought from the Onondagas in 1817, and sold to settlers in 1822. East of the central ridge is Sherman Hollow, called after James Sherman, and west of it Christian Hollow, after Michael Christian, a soldier who drew Lot 18, Tuller, on Onondaga creek in that town.
