1835 Advocates for a New County
General Meeting of residents of
Hector, Ulysses, Enfield, Covert, and Lodi
 
 

In 1835, the Trumansburg Advertiser published a notice of a
meeting to discuss the formation of a new county, listing
46 supporters from Hector, 108 from Ulysses,
42 from Covert, 9 from Enfield & 9 from Lodi.
This initiative not successful; the history books, such as History of
Tioga, Chemung, Tompkins & Schuyler Counties, NY, pub. 1879,
made no mention of the 1835 attempt to create a new county.
