THURSTON - page 490

"Was formed from Cameron, February 28, 1844, and named in honor of William B. Thurston, a member of the society of Friends, and a principal land owner. It is an interior town and lies a little southeast of the centre of the county. It is bounded north by the town of Bath, east by Campbell, south by Addison and Rathbone, and west by Cameron. Its surface is chiefly a high, broken upland, forming a part of the dividing ridge between the Conhocton and the Canisteo rivers. The summits of the hills are from five to six hundred feet above the valleys. The principal streams are Stockden creek in the northwest, and Michigan or Otter creek in the south, flowing in deep, narrow ravines, bordered by steep hillsides. The soil is chiefly a shaley and gravelly loam. The population in 1890 was 1,112, a loss of one hundred and fifty-four since 1880."
