GREECE was formed from Gates, March 22, 1822. It lies near the center, on the north border of the County. Genesee River forms its east boundary and Lake Ontario the north. The surface is gently rolling with a slight inclination towards the lake. It is drained by several small streams which flow into the bays that indent the shore. There are six of these bays, and their names, beginning at the west, are Braddocks Bay, and Cranberry, Long, Buck, Round and Little Ponds. They are of little importance in a commercial view on account of the changing sandbars at their mouths. The soil of the town is a clay loam with large tracts of drift sand along the lake shore.

Charlotte, (p. v.) in the north-east corner, near the mouth of the river, is a U. S. port of entry in the Genesee District, and the lake port for Rochester, seven miles above. It contains two churches, a light house, a ship yard, a steam mill for sawing and dressing lumber, a large establishment for the manufacture of iron and a population of about 500. The Royal Mail Line of Steamers, running from Montreal to Hamilton, stop at this place. Steamers also run from this place to Colborne, Coburg, Port Hope and other Canadian ports.

West Greece, (p. v.) on the line of Parma, contains two churches, a store, a hotel and about 30 dwellings.

North Greece (p. v.) contains a church, a hotel, a carriage shop and about 20 dwellings.

South Greece (p. v.) contains a church, a store, a wire weaving establishment and about 25 dwellings.

Greece (p. v.) contains a church, a hotel, a carriage shop and 20 houses.

Hanford's Landing, (p. v.) in the south-east comer, at the head of navigation on Genesee River, contains two hotels, several mechanic shops and 25 dwellings.

Greece Center and Read's Corners are hamlets.

The first settlement was made at the mouth of the Genesee, by William Hencher and family, in 1792. Mr. Hencher was a native of Brookfield, Mass. He was engaged in "Shay's Rebellion," and took refuge from the authorities in the wilds of Western New York. He first located at Newtown Point, but in 1791, with his son William, he went to the mouth of the Genesee River, where he found Walker, the Ranger, living in a log hut on the east side of the river. Having decided to settle at the mouth of the river he erected a log cabin on the west side, cut wild grass at Long Pond for the stock which they intended to bring on, and returned for the family, having in the meantime laid in a stock of fever and ague which lasted most of the following winter. In February, 1792, upon ox sleds, he and his family started for their new home. They came via Seneca Lake and Catharine's Town to Irondequoit, where the road terminated. From this point they cut their own road to the Genesee Falls, and thence down the river on the east side to Walker's, where the family remained until the last of March, when they crossed over and took possession of the first house erected upon the lake Shore between the Genesee and Fort Niagara. The family consisted of the parents, one son and seven daughters. Mr. Hencher cleared a few acres and soon commenced a brisk traffic with boatmen, emigrants and Indians, who frequented this region. He carried on quite an extensive trade in fish and other articles, upon which he made large profits. He purchased 600 acres of land which he paid for twice, the first title proving defective, and supported a large family. Some of the hogs brought here by Mr. Hencher became wild and were a match for all other animals wild or tame that inhabited the country. One boar became so powerful that he was alone more than a match for a bear or for all the dogs in the settlement. Dens of rattle snakes were all along the banks of the river below the Falls. In the spring, when warm weather first commenced, they would come out and lie in the sun so torpid that multitudes of them could be killed in a very few hours. They would go upon their summer rambles and return on the approach of cold weather. On one occasion several settlers assembled together and went up the river on a hunt, killing 300 rattlesnakes in one day.

John Love settled here in 1793. Messrs. Hencher and Love, on one occasion, went to Shaeffer's, near Scottsville, and purchased some corn, took it to the old Allan mill, ground it themselves, carried it on their backs to a point a short distance above Hanford's Landing, where they made ropes of bark and let it down into a canoe. Game was very abundant. Braddock's Bay was a famous place for trapping otter, mink and muskrats, while geese and ducks were so abundant that their eggs could be procured in any desirable quantity.

Zadoc Granger and Gideon King settled at the Lower Falls in 1796. The place was formerly called King's Landing, now Hanford's Landing. In 1796-7 there was quite an accession to the population, consisting of Eli Granger, Thomas King, Simon King, Elijah Kent, Frederic Bushnell and Samuel Latta. In 1799 Eli Granger and Abner Migells built a schooner at the Landing; it was the first merchant vessel built by Americans on Lake Ontario. Frederic Hanford kept the first store in 1810, it was the first one on the river between Avon and the lake. Silas O. Smith opened a store at the Landing the same year, but in 1813 removed to the village of Rochester, which was just attracting the attention of settlers.

In 1810 DeWitt Clinton passed through this town, with others, looking for a route for a canal He says in his journal: "We dined and slept at Hanford's tavern, who is also a merchant and carries on a considerable trade with Canada. There is a great trade between this country and Montreal in staves, potash and flour." He says the exports this season (1810) were 1,000 barrels of flour, 1,000 barrels of pork, 1,000 barrels of potash and over 100,000 staves.

In 1798 Bradford and Moses King, Dr. Stone, ____ Graham, and four brothers by the name of Rowe, settled in the neighborhood. The country was very sickly, and many deaths occurred. Asa Rowe died soon after coming in and his brothers were so sick at the time as to be unable to go for help to lay him out and bury him until he had been dead twenty-four hours. After recovering from their sickness they returned to Oneida County. The first settlers procured their first boards by repairing the old Allan saw mill at the Falls, but within a few years Nathaniel Jones built a saw mill on a small stream that flows into the river near the Landing. Dr. Zacheus Colby and Dr. Sylvester Atchinson were early physicians in this town. The first marriage was that of Thomas Lee and a daughter of William Hencher.

The Atchinsons, from Connecticut, settled at Braddock's Bay at a very early period. Bezaleel, Stephen and John, were there as early as March, 1796. They came from Naples, via Canawagus, crossing the river on the ice. At the Allan mill they found a hunter whom they hired to pilot them to the Bay, not having the benefit of marked trees. They were three days in making their journey. On their arrival they made a shelter of the boards from their sleds and some blankets, in which they lived six weeks until they could build a log cabin without boards, nails or glass. They started from Naples with four oxen, lost one on the way and two soon after their arrival, leaving only one ox for all their team work. With this ox they logged eight acres and preĀ­ pared it for summer crops. Michael Beach had settled there the previous year. George Goodhue, Silas Leonard, Timothy Madden and their families, settled in the town within a few years after the Atchinsons. Mr. Leonard went to the salt works in Onondaga Co. the next winter to chop, and was killed by the fall of a tree. Jonathan Leonard, his son, afterwards married a daughter of William Hencher. Like other early settlers in this region they suffered greatly from sickness. Money was scarce and nothing but cattle could be sold for cash. Mrs. Bezaleel Atchinson lived eight months without seeing a white woman. Indians often came to the Bay to hunt, trap and pick cranberries. Salmon were abundant and large quantities of them could be taken in a short time. Beavers were here when the settlement commenced but soon disappeared.

The population of this town in 1865 was 4,400; its area is 30,559 acres.

There are 17 school districts, employing 19 teachers. The number of the school population is 1,535; the number atĀ­ending school, 1,138; the average attendance, 543, and the amount expended for school purposes during the year ending September 30, 1868, was $6,290.00.
