The attached is the Birthday Book of Roana Brisco Bronson, my great grandmother. Most of the folks mentioned are either from the Sullivanville, Veteran Twp., area or over the border in Schuyler Co. Since Roana lived most of her married life in Sullivanville, maybe Veteran Twp. site would be a good spot for this if you want to use it. The original was in the possession of Alice Lopresti in 1992 when I copied it.

Birthday Book of Roana Brisco Bronson of Veteran Township, Chemung County, NY

Roana Emeline Brisco Bronson was born in the Frost Hill area of what is now Schuyler County. She was the daughter of Nathan Brisco of Connecticut and Clarissa Van Gorder. She married Wallace William Bronson (born in Canada) in 1877 and resided for a few years in Millport and later settled down one mile north of Sullivanville, Veteran Twp., Chemung Co., NY. Roana died 21 Aug 1920 at Wynn Bronson's home in Elmira. Wynn and Clara were her only children. Entries that have been added after her death were probably entered by her daughter Clara Bronson Cooley of Schuyler Co.
