About 1s20, a Post office was established at Sullivan on a new route i tinning from Wooster to the Indian Village f now i Ian. This proved a great convenience As it reduced the distance to the Post office nearly Twenty Miles. Salt was a very essential article and Haid to obtain in Conse Quence of Scarcity and want of Means to buy it. There was however a place in the North part of Liverpool whore Salt was made by boiling the water of a Spring. To this place the inhabitants of this Region were obliged to go to obtain their supplies. At one time Daniel and Ira Tilotson John Laborio Henry r. Fer is and Charles r. Sago went and Cut one Hundred and twelve cords of four foot Wood for four barrels of Salt. Thoy were gone from Home Only ten Days and counting two Days to go and come being thirty loft Thom for to Days in which to Cut Tho Wood being nearly three cords per Day to each they boarded at the House of a Man named Kent and lived on potatoes and milk the floor of the House was made of a Shewn Puncheon which made it necessary when any Ono walked across the floor for each who sat at Tho table to catch his dish of later and milk in his hands or risk the loss of its precious contents. The remark is often Mado of persons not earning their Salt we think those men did Viany inc Sonta of the Early settlement of this township would to interesting if i properly told. As nearly tha whole town ship was one common pasture it was often very tedious to be obliged to Hunt their cattle and hogs in Tho almost trackless wilderness. At one time Daniel Tilotson and Uncle John who Don t know undo John a Woro out Hunting when Thoy came across a Fine lot of pigs which Uncle John recognized As being his. They being a Fine or Dor for butchering Thoy concluded to catch them. Accordingly they Sot on Tho dog who captured Ono by one while Tilotson sitting upon to ground held them until he had five when undo John Tore strip after strip from his Tow and Linen shirt and tied their logs. He then left Tilotson in charge of the captives while to wont near two Miles to Rhosa closes and got his oxen and Wagon to draw Thom Homo. Hav ing to Cut his own Road through the Brush it was nearly dark Whon he returned. They now started for Homo Ono going ahead and cutting the Road Onilo the Othor the team. They at length arrived Homo and night As it was preparations were Mado to kill Tho pigs.

It was organized by Rev. James regular meetings wore hold at Tho school House for a few years. Whon not supplied with a preacher some Ono would read a Sermon which More frequently was done by Isaac Sage. An incident that is perhaps Worth relating or is at least rather Amus ing May be told of two of the curly settlers Daniel Tilotson and Reuel Tilotson at this time was an official la the Baptist Church and a confirmed universalist now As they wore frequent 1 j usually1 won error of their ways. Nowr it so happened that each Ino s efforts wore crowned with Success Ai Tilotson Goon became a universalist n Init or and Lang a method let both of which Aro As sanguine in their present belief As Whon arguing on opposite sides and Aro both at this time trying to Disso Minalou their own views.
