To the Editor of The Republic:
DEAR SIR-I saw an article in the REPUBLIC of the Uthinst. stating that Cyverious Chapin Bristol was the first white male child born in Buffalo and that that was in 1811. I think he is mistaken. I was born in Buffalo the 29 of August 1805, consequently I am 79 years of age. My father Abel Beebe went from the town of Farif, Oneida oounty, in 1803 and took 160 acres in the heart of your city at two
dollars and twenty-five cents per acre. He lived there until 1807 when he sold his land
and went to Pomfret, Chautauqua oounty and purchased 160 acres of land. This is the account of the matter as I received it from my father. DELOS BEE BE.
