Among other settlers about that time were William and Josiah Richardson, Daniel H. Wooster, Milo Warner, Daniel Smith, Elijah Smith, and Lemuel J. Paul. About 1818 Moses and Allen Twiss located near Currier's Corners and were soon followed by John Brown, Henry Woolsey, Rodney Day, Cyrus McClure, B. Dickerson, Charles Fox, and others.
