information from research of historian J. Roy Dodge, 1991
"In the spring of 1850 Jeremiah Everingham purchased 77 acres in the town of Onondaga on lots 213,221,225 and known as "seeley Flats". He moved there with all of his family except son William who remained on the Fabius farm and later purchased it from his father January 1, 1858.
When Jeremiah had moved to the town of Fabius his son William was seven years old. The next place south, a few rods down a short hill from Everingham's, was the Ezekiel Mills farm. It was truly a question of a boy who marries the "girl next door" when Ezekiel's daughter, Anna and William were married in November, 1849 just before the rest of the family moved to Seeley Flats.
On July 7, 1826 Ezekiel A. Mills was living in the town of New Marlborough, Berkshire County, Massachusetts. That was the day that he purchased one hundred acres on lot #1 of the town of Fabius from Amos Tenney. (Bk. HH p.318)
When William Everingham purchased his uncle Enoch's farm on January 1, 1867 he paid $30,500.00 for 250 acres or $122.00 per acre. This included all stock, cattle and tools. It was the largest amount ever paid for a farm in the town of LaFayette up to that time and remained so for many years thereafter."
