ELISHA TOZER came from the east to Barton and settled on Shepard creek about the year 1800. He was a captain in the Revolution. He "took up" a lot of wild land, built a log house, cleared up a farm from the original forest, and was a farmer and lumberman all his days. James Tozer, son of Elisha, married Cynthia Wilson and settled, first in Chemung county, then in Bradford county, Pa., but when he died, in 1839, was again residing in Chemung county. Edward A. Tozer, son of James and Cynthia (Wilson) Tozer, was educated to be a farmer and has ever followed that vocation. He married Diantha J. Johnson, daughter of Thomas F., and settled near his present residence. Their only child is Cynthia (Mrs. Edward C. Hart). Mr. Tozer is a staunch democrat, and both Mr. and Mrs. Tozer are members of the M. E. church.
