      DANIEL LACY is a native of Caledonia, has resided in the State of New York all his life and in the town of Avon for about thirty years. His father, Ephraim, was also a native of this State, he having been born at Goshen, Orange County; but his grandfather, William, was born in Connecticut, town of Danbury, and yet was one of the earliest settlers in Orange County, New York. He was a farmer, and he cleared and otherwise improved a good deal of land in that section.
      Ephraim Lacy removed from Orange County with an ox team, coming first to Monroe County, and from there to Livingston, where he took up a farm in Caledonia. It was part of the Holland Purchase, was entirely wild land, and had an area of about two hundred acres. It is very difficult for the present generation to realize that peaceful, prosperous, and highly civilized New York State was the home of "wild " Indians comparatively few years ago. Yet the history of the State shows such to be the fact, and what brings it still nearer home to us is the history of old families whom we all know -for instance, that of the Lacy family; for, when the father of the subject of this sketch took up the farm on the Holland Purchase, there were Indians in that section. He built a log house; and, shortly after he had fairly begun improvement of the property, he married Mary Dickinson, of Vermont. The sparsely settled nature of the country at that time is indicated by the fact that the nearest market that Ephraim Lacy could find for his wheat was at Hanford's Landing, below Rochester. He and his wife had four children-Charlotte, who died in 1840; Volney, who died in 1890; Mary A.; and Daniel, the subject of this sketch.
      Daniel began his education in the district schools, and finished it at Canandaigua Academy. To the city people of to-day most of the district school-houses of the present time look small, bare, and inconvenient; but, compared with those of Daniel Lacy's boyhood days, they are almost palaces. The school-houses he attended were built of logs, were equipped with slab seats; and the other furnishings were equally crude. But the value of a school depends more upon the kind of teachers it has than it does upon the kind of furnishings it is supplied with; and, judging by the record made by those who got all their schooling in the old district schools, they had many good teachers in those days. Our subject chose farming in those days; and, when his father divided up his lands among his boys, Daniel got the original farm. He remained on it until 1865, when he sold out to his brother, came to Avon, bought a farm of about fifty acres, and now has another farm located on the river front.
      Born in 1827, Daniel Lacy was thirty-eight years old in 1865, when he came to Avon, where he has resided ever since. In October, 1850, he married Frances Sackett, daughter of Colonel Orange Sackett and Amanda (Sheldon) Sackett. They have had five children-Harriet H., Samuel S., John J., Frances V. Z., and Harry D. Lacy. Harriet H. married George W. Carman, of Marine City, Mich.; and they have five children- Ruth, Frances L., John L., Henry M. Stanley, Florence. Samuel S. married Lillian Stone, of Lima; and they live in Rochester. John J. married Emma E. Wallace, of Cattaraugus. Frances and Harry D. are at home.
      During his long residence in Avon Mr. Lacy has found time to devote to public service, and has held various reponsible public offices. He was Highway Commissioner at the building of the big bridge at Spencerport in 1877, has been Assessor five years in Caledonia and three years in the town of Avon. He was School Trustee at the time of the organization of the union free school, and held that position for eighteen years. Daniel Lacy cast his first Presidential vote in 1848 for Zachary Taylor, and has been a member of the Republican party from its formation. He is as consistent in his friendships as he is in his political views, and is a "good neighbor" as well as a public-spirited citizen.
