After returning from the war they began to look around for an occupation suitable to them for their life work, but as there was nothing much to choose from but farming, they began to look around for a choice in location.
Those who had been up in the northern part of New Hampshire were very much pleased with the Connecticut Valley. A good many young men married and settled in that part of the country. When their children grew up they heard of the good opportunities in northern New York, around Potsdam and Parishville in St.
The latter township was nearly all settled by people from Grafton County, New Hampshire. Other soldiers, after returning from the war, who had been in the western part of the country, thought very favorably of the Genesee country which at that time included nearly all western New York, and among the very earliest settlers of this country was General John Swift and his brother Philetus.
After the close of the Revolutionary War they removed to a disputed territory in Pennsylvania. General Swift had a commission and was at the battle of Wyoming and was also engaged in the Pennemite War where he set fire to a Pennemite block house and received a shot in his neck.
After the massacre of Wyoming a remnant of the settlers resolved to seek another home. John Swift and John Jenkins were appointed agents to select and purchase land for their occupation. John Jenkins had been employed by Phelps and Gorham as a surveyor and was acquainted with the Genesee country.
In they purchased the township of land known as Wayne County in which are the towns of Macedon and Palmyra. Swift made the first settlement, built and occupied the first trading house where now stands the village of Palmyra, then called Swift's Landing, at the mouth of Mill Brook, now just north of the Barge Canal on Railroad Avenue.
Jenkins built a tavern under the brow of the hill on the bank of the creek about two miles below Palmyra village. His party consisted of four men, Harris, Earl, Baker and Rawson. Near the cabin was the hunting camp of Tuscarora Indians to whom provisions upon several occasions, had been given.
Early one morning the Indians crept up to the cabin, put their guns through between the unchinked logs, chose their mark and fired. Baker was killed, Earl was wounded and the others were unharmed.
Jenkins and Rawson each seized an ax as they sprang from their blankets and met the Indians as they rushed from the hut and eventually 12 drove them into the woods where they were lost to sight.
In the melee Jenkins and Rawson managed to wrest two rifles and a tomahawk from their assailants. At daylight Jenkins and Rawson, after burying the body of Baker, set out with Earl, the wounded man, to seek assistance and spread the alarm of a possible Indian uprising.
After traveling the better part of a day through the woods, the party reached a small collection of log huts on the site of the present Geneva, where a possee was organized to search for the troublesome Indians.
Since the close of the Revolutionary War the American government had sought to make agreeable settlements with the Western New York Indians, who, claiming they were so bound by treaties, had mostly sided with the British in the struggle. Colonel John Butler's Tory Rangers, an organization of British sympathizers from the Mohawk and Susquehanna settlements, that with their Indian allies had strewn death and destruction through the backwoods settlements of New York and Pennsylvania during the war, still made their headquarters at Fort Niagara, which was not given up by the British untilfollowing an agreement over the New York and Upper Canada boundary line.
The Rangers were not hesitating, either, to keep the Indians stirred up over the steady westward advance of settlers from the eastern states and the Hudson River valley settlements into the fertile wilderness of the Genesee country that returning soldiers were so enthusiastic over.
Taking up the trail of the Indians, who had recently left the hut, laden with plunder, the Geneva party followed it southward for several days and at last came upon two Tuscaroras in the woods near the Indian trading post called Newtown, on the Chemung river, six miles south of the present Elmira.
The surveyors who had accompanied the Geneva possee, declared that these Indians were with the party that had attacked them in the darkness at their cabin.
With Johnstown, the nearest jail, many days march to the east, and with consequent small chance of getting the prisoners there, and with the trails still watched by patrols of Butler's Rangers, it was decided to give the Indians a trial by jury then and there and dispose of them likewise.
The verdict of the court was "Guilty. Horatio Jones and Jasper Parrish, two Geneva residents employed by the United States as interpreters in dealing with Indians, were present at the trial.
The prisoners were blindfolded, led into the woods and each dispatched with a blow on the head from the tomahawk captured by Jenkins and Rawson when the camp was attacked. The barbarity of this act, the aceounts of the execution state, were 13 excused by the exigencies of the times.
Electrocution as a means of capital punishment was then unknown. There was no rope handy that day on the wooded banks of the Chemung River. The executioners fell back upon the old English custom of putting a man out of misery with an ax.
Having no broad ax with them the men of the law substituted the primitive Indian weapon, the "tomahawk. When Swift and Jenkins bought this township, range 2, they at once began to survey off farm lots along Mud Creek. His death and funeral was the first in Palmyra.
Harwood died in Lemuel Spear is given as the third settler. The land he purchased at that time he paid 20 cents an acre for.🔥Citing and more!
