First Congregational Church

LaFayette, Onondaga Co., NY

Liber 1

Organized October 14, 1805 As the Columbian Society.

In the souvenir of the One Hundredth Anniversary of the
First Presbyterian Church of LaFayette, New York, we read:
The first settlers of this locality which was known in the early days as Pompey West Hill were
nearly all New Englanders many having come from Berkshire and Hampshire Counties, Mass. The
first settler came to the town in 1792 and by 1805 emigrants were rapidly pouring into this
At the first meeting of the Columbian Society which was held at Stoughton Morse's Inn the
following officers were elected.
Two moderators, Joseph Smith and Jacob Johnson.
Six trustees, Luther Wright, Levi Wheaton, Noah Hoyt, Nathan Abbott, Major Isaac Hall and
Capt. Erastus Baker.
Dr. Silas Park, Clerk.
A committee was appointed to have the Society legally incorporated and to draw up a constitution
and by-laws. Major Isaac Hall, Ezekiel Hoyt, Joseph Smith, Dr. Silas Park, Luther Wright and
Caleb Green.
This committee appeared before Judge Asa Danforth July 26 1806 and the certificate of
incorporation bears the signature of that early settler.
In 1808 the Society built a school house on the square acre given them by Caleb Green and
Erastus Baker.
Although the Church was not organized until 1809 the first important business of the Society
was to find a minister of the Gospel, and the first secured was Elder Butler. He was followed
by Mr. McCampbell and he by Mr. Rawson.
During the War of 1812 the members of this Society took an active part: seven of its members were
officers. Most of them went to the defense of Oswego and Sackett's Harbor: Gen. Isaac Hall,
Col. Jeremiah Gould, Capt. Erastus Baker, Capt. Harry Hall, Capt. Ezekiel Hoyt,
Ensign Joseph H. Cole and Johnson Hall.
