The date is not readily determinable. but it is certain that Jason Damon hewed out a home amid the primeval forest. He left nine sons, one of whom, Norton Jason Damon, was the father of Loren. Norton lived at Verona, Oneida county, during the sixties, but returned to Sullivan when Loren was a boy of six, and the farm which he afterwards cleared with his own hands is now owned by Loren Damon. This consists of nearly 100 acres and the elder Damon was thereon engaged largely in the breeding of horses for the market, chiefly of the Sampson and Messenger types. Here Norton died aged seventy seven years, in 1881. Loren has always been engaged in farming, and is one of the progressive men of the town; he also owns a pleasant home in the village, which he purchased in 1890. He is highly esteemed in Bridgeport and wherever known as a citizen of sterling worth. He is a Republican, and takes an active interest in the events of the time, but has no ambition for office.
