ALANSON LACY, son of Elnathan and Nancy Lacy, was born in Manlius, Onondaga Co., NY, Sept. 1st, 1810, and has been a resident of Perry, Wyoming Co., NY since 1817, and a lifelong farmer. He was married May 29th, 1839, to SARAH ANN KNOWLTON, daughter of John and Esther Knowlton, of Portage, NY. They have had two children, one of whom is living. James M. Lacy, their oldest son, enlisted in Company K, 1st N.Y. mounted rifles, and died in the hospital at Williamsburg, Va, Feb. 19th, 1863, at the age of twenty-four. Elnathan Lacy, son of Samuel Lacy, was born in Connecticut, June 10th, 1773, and in 1780 accompanied his parents to Milton, Saratoga Co., NY. March 17th, 1817, he came with his father from Manlius, Onondago Co., NY to Perry, Wyoming Co., NY, and located on lot 21, a mile northeast of the village, the place he afterward cleared and always occupied. He kept a public house twenty-three years. He was married in 1800 to NANCY HORTON, daughter of Ebenezer Horton of Connecticut, and in 1828 to ZILPHA FROST, who died Nov. 18th, 1877, aged ninety-two. Mr. Lacy died June 17th, 1862; Samuel Lacy, his father, Jan. 8th, 1820, aged seventy-eight. By his first wife Elnathan Lacy had nine children, six of whom grew up, viz: Hannah Lacy, who married Sullivan Burt; Edward Lacy, who died at the age of twenty-four; Martha Lacy, who married N. S. Benton; Clarence Lacy, the only one now living, and who occupies the old homestead; Aurelia Lacy, who married Martin Sweet, and Alvah Lacy.
