CORNING pg 252

"Township embraces the territory that remained of the original township of Painted Post in 1852, in which year the name of the town was changed to Corning in honor of Erastus Corning, Sr., a distinguished citizen and merchant of Albany, N.Y. and the first president of the Corning Company which founded the prosperous city that now bears his name.

This town also contains a "gore" of several hundred acres taken from the southeast corner of the town of Hornby and is township No. 2 in Range 1 of the county of Steuben. It is bounded on the north by Hornby, east by the west line of Chemung county, south by Caton and by the town of Erwin on the west. The town contains 22,499 acres. The city, 1800 acres.

The surface of the town is divided from northwest to southeast into two unequal upland portions by the valley of the Chemung river, the portion on the northeast side being considerably larger and more valuable than are the uplands on the opposite side of the river. The principal streams emptying into the Chemung river on its northerly side are the Borden, Narrows and Winfield creeks; on the opposite side Monkey-run and Steel's creek are the chief streams. As an agricultural region this town is not above a general average of Steuben county.
