CIVIL HISTORY

The following is a list of the supervisors from 1804 to 1878, and town clerks from 1825 to 1878. The first records of this town were burned a number of years since, and we are unable to give the names of clerks prior to 1825. The list of supervisors for that period was taken from records in the office of the county clerk:
