    Geographical Gazetteer of Jefferson County, N.Y. 1684-1890
    pg 430 Town of Ellisburgh William Rury Biography
    William Rury was born in Otsego County, N. Y., in 1793, and in 1819 came to Ellisburgh and located where Frederick Rury now resides. He married Lavina, daughter of Daniel Cook, by whom he had four sons and five daughters, of whom three sons, John, Daniel L., and Frederick H., reside in this town. Mr. Rury died in 1880. His son, John, born in 1823, was reared upon a farm and learned the coopers' trade. He married Miriam, daughter of Samuel F. and Zerah (Barney) McNitt, of Clayton, September 8, 1847, by whom he had three sons and one daughter, viz.: Madison, who died in 1862, aged 12 years; Emma A. (Mrs. John M. Millard), of Ellisburgh; Ernest N., who died in 1871, aged seven years; and Frank. Mrs. Rury died in 1889. Mr. Rury resides in the village of Ellisburgh.

    Emerson, Edgar C., ed - 1898

    Among others and perhaps later settlers, whose names may not be mentioned in the village history, yet are worthy of preservation in these annals, were John Wilds, Amos Hudson, Wdlard Alverson, Benjamin Waterman, Ethni Fillmore, Ira Goodenough, Henry Washburn, James Converse (about 1818), Benjamin Jackman, Joseph Haskins, Salmon, John and Aaron Blanchard, Rufus Richardson (who was said to have been one of Washington's "life guards" during the revolution), William W. Walker, Zephaniah Penny, George Reed, William Rury, Daniel and Samuel Wardwell, David Smith, Charles Hollister, Benjamin Durfee, Calvin Harrington, Demetrus Davis, Aaron Eastman, Ira Caster, John Decker, Dr. Roswell Kinney, and also the Masons, Hosingtons, Nobles and Scofields, all of whom were in some manner identified with the town in its early history and development, but not one of whom now lives to tell again the story of early hardships and successes in the new and then somewhat unhealthy region bordering on the Sandy creeks.

    Thus have we brought to the notice of the reader the names of the pioneers and many of the earlier settlers in what has ever been regarded one of the most historic, interesting and important civil divisions of Jefferson county. As early as 1803 there were at least thirty or forty families in the town, while in the adjoining town of Henderson was about the same number.
