153 Corporate Dr

Census taker: Gary O. Green
History of Oneonta - The first settler in the area now known as the town of Oneonta is considered to be Henry Scramling (b. ~1743; d. 1808) He secured a grant of 1,000 acres in the Susquehanna Valley, moved from German Flats in the Mohawk Valley and settled in the Oneonta Plains near the mouth of the Otego Creek several years (about 1773) before the Revolutionary War. He left during the Revolution and returned after the conflict with his brothers, George and David, and his brothers-in-law, John and David Young. Their farms were not far from the mouth of the Otego Creek.
Revolutionary Soldiers - David SCRAMLING, who died in 1824, was grandfather
of Allen Scramling. Henry SCRAMLING, David's brother, who died in 1808, was a
Second Lieutenant in Tryon County Militia. James THOMPSON, a soldier of the
French and Indian and Revolutionary wars, was at Bunker Hill. He lived with
David Scramling and was never married. These three are buried in the old
graveyard on the Ephraim PARISH farm. This farm was later divided up and the
cemetery is now on Corporate Drive on a small hill between State Route 7 and
Interstate 88 off State Route 205 at Exit 13 of Interstate 88.
