The following has been transcribed from a booklet by Mrs. Leman Hunter of Cleveland, OH, published in 1914.  It is of particular local interest because Ezekiel Sayles is generally known as the first settler of Sempronius following the Revolution and many people in the area can trace their roots to the Sayles family. Leslie L. Luther refers to it in his notes as "The Little Sayles Book".

Also of note is that as families grew and Sempronius became "civilized", some offspring of the original Sempronius families moved on to other parts.  There is a particular link to Huron and Erie Counties in Ohio, also known as "The Firelands", that deserves further research.


GENEALOGY OF THE SAYLES

FAMILY

Compiled in the year 1914, by Eliza Schaeffer Hunter.

Ezekiel SAYLES came from Stillwater, Saratoga County N.Y. to what is now the town of Sempronius, Cayuga County, N.Y., in 1793 and settled where what many years afterwards became Sayles Corners, and such it remains today.

He purchased a tract of land from one, Judge THOMPSON of Saratoga, it was only a vast wilderness, far from any settlement of white people. It was six years later (1799), that the county and town were organized and named

He was the first white settler, and erected the first house, a log structure, in the town. He was wise in the choice of location which was near some fine springs of soft water from which flowed a considerable stream; both are flowing today, though in much less volume.

Other settlements had been made in other parts of the town which was ten miles square. The first town meeting, for the election of town officers was held at Mr. SAYLES house, it being the most central location, and they were held there for several years afterwards.

At the first town meeting, Mr. SAYLES was chosen Town Clerk, and was annually chosen to the office for twenty two years. He also held offices for long terms, and a remarkable fact, showing his conceded ability, is that at one time he was the incumbent of six town offices: Town Clerk, Justice of the Peace, Assessor, Commissioner of Roads, Commissioner of Public Lands, and Pound Master. He was also a surveyor, and did much work in that line in all parts of the town. I have no means of knowing the date of his birth, but he died on the old homestead about 1828; neither do I know whom be married or when, but from this union there were eleven children: Ahab SAYLES, David SAYLES, Ezekiel SAYLES, Jr., Benjamin SAYLES and seven daughterís, Phoebe SAYLES, married Eri TAYLOR; Eleanor SAYLES, married John TITUS, Anna SAYLES, married Ebenezer WOOSTER, Jemima SAYLES, married Nathaniel PALMER, Amy SAYLES, married Ira ROOKS, Lydia SAYLES, married Orrin WILLIS, and Sarah SAYLES, weak minded never married.

Ahab SAYLES went to Michigan in an early day, and I have not been able to get any information of them; although I wrote Merrit SAYLES, supposed to be a descendant of Ahab SAYLES. There were three brothers settled in township of Keene, Mich. One had a family of fifteen children, which grew to be men and women.

David SAYLES had six sons: John B. SAYLES, Cornelius SAYLES; Charles SAYLES, David SAYLES, Lemuel A. SAYLES, and Lorenzo Dow SAYLES; one daughter, Betsy SAYLES who married Hiram KENYON.

Lorenzo Dow SAYLES, son of David SAYLES, born March 21st, 1814, married Margaretta PULTZ, August 26th, 1841, and died March 16th, 1896. His wife still lives at Moravia at the age of ninety-two.

One child, Mary Ellen SAYLES, born Jan. 8th, 1843. Married Dwight Cheney BROWN, Dec. 1st, 1863. Two children born to this union. Fred Sayles BROWN born Aug. 21st, 1867. Died Sept. 13th, 1875. Jessie May BROWN born Jan. 12th, 1879.

Jessie May BROWN, daughter of Dwight & Ellen BROWN, married Lewis Smith CARR, June 20th, 1912.

Lemuel SAYLES had two sons, George SAYLES and Lewis SAYLES, they are now somewhere in the West. Cornelius, one son, William SAYLES now in Pennsylvania.

Ezekiel SAYLES, Jr., was born at Sempronius, N.Y., Cayuga County. He married Anstrus FOSTER, at Sempronius about 1799. He succeeded to much of the estate of his father, and at the marriage of his oldest daughter, Sally SAYLES, she was given 25 acres of land, and her husband, Knight SPRINGER, bought 25 acres adjoining. They increased this by purchase to 114 acres. The old Sayles homestead at Sayles Corners was sold to George SPRINGER, (Uncle to Knight SPRINGER), who came from Rensselaer County, N.Y. Several years later Knight SPRINGER came possessed of this old homestead; also Benjamin SAYLES had a portion of the original estate, but more than forty years ago it all passed into other hands, and none of the SAYLES kindred are living in that vicinity.

Ezekiel SAYLES, Jr., and family, except oldest daughter, left this county in 1832, and located near Berlin Heights, Huron County (now Erie County), Ohio, and is now known as West Berlin. He practiced medicine for several years, and later located in Wood County, Ohio. His wife passed away in 1843, and he went to live with his son Alfred SAYLES, in Portland, Mich., until he died.

Anstrus FOSTER, wife of Ezekiel SAYLES, Jr. was born in Rhode Island. She had a brother, David H. FOSTER, living in Sempronius. He had two sons and two daughters; -- David H. FOSTER, Jr. married Polly MATTON; Christopher FOSTER married Eleanor WRIGHT; Susan FOSTER, married William WELCH; Altheda FOSTER, married John B. CLARK.

Anstrus FOSTER Sayles, had two sisters; one married John GOFF. One descendent of the Goffs, Albina GOFF, living in Moravia, N.Y. The other sister married Samuel HARDY. There were three daughters: -- Minerva HARDY, married Lewis MORGAN and lived near Milan, Ohio. Celia HARDY married Perry ROOT, lived at Avery, Ohio. Flora HARDY married Christopher BIRD, lived at Ceylon, Ohio.

OBITUARY.

Sally SAYLES Springer, surviving her late husband, Mr. Knight SPRINGER, scarcely more than one brief year, died at her residence at Sempronius on Saturday, Mch. 21st, 1874 after a painful illness of about six weeks, a violent attack of pneumonia terminated in quick consumption, placing her beyond the reach of medical skill. Her sickness was attended with great pain and suffering, which she bore throughout with uncommon Christian fortitude, finally passing calmly, peacefully and willingly to her spiritual home. Her maiden name was Sayles, and her father Ezekiel SAYLES was one of the first settlers in, the town of Sempronius at what has ever since been known as Sayles Corners. Near this spot, she was born Dec. 2nd, 1801, and within sight of which she had always lived untiil[sic] four years ago her husband sold his property there and moved to the village of Sempronius. Never blessed with children of her own, yet her home had been that of the orphan almost continually for nearly fifty years. In her early childhood she came to us as a mother fostering and regarding us and our little sister with a true maternal care. Her kindness of heart, and parental instruction at that tender age we have learned in after years to treasure with the most reverential gratitude. Early in life she embraced the Christian religion, and united with the Baptist church, of which she was a member at the time of her death. She will he remembered by those who knew her as a kind hearted benevolent simpathetic[sic] Christian woman. The funeral was attended at the Baptist church in Sempronius on Monday, and a discourse delivered by Rev. A.W. COON of Scott from the following text. "If a man die shall he live again."

Again we are reminded of the uncertainties of this life in the sudden death of Mrs. Lydia SPRINGER, which occured at the home of her sister, Mrs. Sally SPRINGER. Only the week before on Monday, at a momentís notice she left her home in Ohio in company with her brother, Mr. David SAYLES, of Milan, Ohio, and hastened to the home and the bedside of her sick and languishing sister, whom she hardly expected to find alive on her arrival. She left her home in usual health and arrived at her sisters on Tuesday, hoping to remain until the former should be restored to health again, but alas, on the Sunday morning following she was seriously attacked with acute pneumonia, which continued to increase in intensity in spite of the skill of her physician, until it terminated her life on Friday. Just two weeks from the day she landed from the cars in the village, she started on her return by the same, a lifeless corpse. She was mother of Dwight SPRINGER, of Summer Hill, and cousin of L. D. SAYLES, and David H. FOSTER.
