    Phineas Alvord when a boy worked for Henry BUELL, a farmer residing in East Bloomfield NY. After being in the employ of Mr BUELL for seven years in 1823 he bought a pair of steers and a wagon which he loaded with apples and started for Mt Morris locating on the land for which his father had contracted and assuming the entire indebtedness He soon built a log house in the construction of which no sawed timber was used By dint of good management and industry he soon paid for his place where he continued to live as a successful farmer.

    His father Stephen Washington ALVORD owned and occupied a farm in Vermont about two miles from Montpelier He endorsed notes for a friend and was obliged to sacrifice his farm to meet the payments He then emigrated to Canada but finding the winters too severe he moved to East Bloomfield NY where he remained until 1823 when he went to Mt Morris NY and contracted for a piece of timber land He immediately began to erect a log house which he expected to make his home but was taken sick and died before its completion.
