Extremely RARE New Orleans printing, NO OTHER COPES NOTED FOR SALE OR IN LIBRARIES ANYWHERE! Rare and scarce treasure with even more amazing provenance. Contains info of the Chissolm family, of Penn Yann, Yates Co., NY. They were actually some of the first settlers of the area and name Penn Yann actually derives from their line, as the earliest members mentioned, Philemon, b1803, grandfather Philemon (probably namesake) Baldwin named it to satisfy the Yankees and the Pennsylvanians that were arguing about naming the town over some whiskey in loval tavern. Chissolm Family (Yates Co, Penn Yann NY): (Bible contains Philemon Chissom, Rachel Chissom, and Israel Chissom) MOSES CHISSOM AND FHILEMON BALDWIN. Moses, an older brother of Robert Chissom, was a native of Columbia county, born in 1764, and ame to this country at the age of thirty a single man. He owned 20 acres of land on lot 45, which was afterwards purchased by Joseph Ketchum and became the nucleus of his large estate. He purchased of i James Scofield in 1801, 50 acres more, afterwards embraced in the Samuel Randall farm, on lot 62. In 1800 he married daughter of Philemon Baldwin, senior, then living at oot of Keuka Lake. She was then 17 and still rives with the living and enjoys remarkable health and vigor. Her husband died in 1840 at the age of 65.About 1806 they moved to the premises now occupied and owned by their son, Philemon Chissom on the South Centre road, on lot 59. They had 11 children, 8 of whom reached adult age, Robert, Israel, Philemon, Samuel, Rachel, John, Aloah 16., and Lester B. Robert married first, Amanda Wagoner and they had 2 children, Hannah and James H. His second wife was Louisa McCann. He died at Kinney's Corners, leaving his widow and two children, of the second marriage, Mary and Henrietta. Israel is a physician and resides in Italy. His wife was Jane B. McCallup of Haiumondsport. They have a daughter MAry E., who married Samuel Hayes of Italy, and emigrated west. Philemon is a bachelor, with whom his motherresides on the homestead, which is owned by him. Samuel married Margaret Ward of Rochester. They have two daughters, Mary E. and Sarah A. Rachel married Daniel B. Tuthill, the present Superintendent of the Poor of Yates county. They reside at Kinney's Corners, and has three children, Israel B., Jennie C. and John M. Lester B. married Mary J., daughter of Elipha Peckins , and resides in Benton. Their children are Philemon and Charles E. Philemon Baldwin was a miller and a farmer, and engaged somewhat in both vocations. He settled at an early period on Flat street, and on what afterwards became the Weed form. He was a man of shrewd and pointed wit, and greatly addicted to jokes and sarcasms. He was a lover of fun and joviality, and was regarded as a man of more than average intelligence, and remarkable for quick perception and keen repartee. The naming of Penn Yan is attributed to him. It was a vexed question for some time, and other names came near being fastened on the nascent village. Finally, on one occasion, when the congregated wisdom of the place had grown somewhat mellow over the subject, as the liquor flowed and the discussion warmed, Baldwin said, "Let it be called Pang Yang." This was deemed a compromise by the Pennsylvanians and Yankees of the locality, and though received with repugnance at first, was finally adopted after being improved into Penn Yan. Mr. Baldwin, while living one year at the foot of Keuka Lake, killed 25 bears, mostly in the lake while they were crossing from one tide to the other, and many deer besides. His children were Asa, Philemon H, Amos, Caleb, Rune, George, Mary, Sally Ann, Elizabeth and Esther, only one of who, Mrs. Mary Chissom, now remains in the county. His son, Philemon H, was for several years a steamboat captain o Keuka Lake. Bookseller Inventory # 000234
