Town of Pompey Clerk Archival Records Listing

Pompey was one of the original towns established in the Military Tract when it was laid out in 1790. It was labeled Township No. 10 as it had no name at the time. This land was set aside as payment for those soldiers from New York State who fought in the Revolutionary War. According to Reverend William Beauchamp, one hundred forty-one Revolutionary War soldiers were buried in Pompey cemeteries. The earliest settlers, mostly from Connecticut and Massachusetts, founded Pompey Academy, the first academy in Onondaga County. William VanBrocklin wrote, "Prior to 1870 Pompey can boast of being the birthplace of more sons who have become eminent in the diversified vocations of life than any town in the United States." In 1825 the Town of LaFayette was formed from the western part of Pompey; however, the early settlements of Delphi Falls, Oran, Pompey Center, Pompey Hill and Watervale still remain within the town.
