Gerrit Smith is credited for donating land in Essex County for the Timbuctoo settlement(possible location of this institution), as well as land in the town of Florence in Oneida County to people of African descent and his estate in in Peterboro in Madison County(an Underground RR community, where the descendants of formerly enslaved Africans still live on Elizabeth Street and is home to the Abolitionist Hall of Fame).

Nichols, who was born in Binghamton in 1842 and served at the Owego Church: https://books.google.com/books?id=mL...church&f=false (swipe page to the left) It mentions that he served at churches in Chatham, Albion, Amityville, Lockport, Setauket, Glen Cove, Jamestown, Middletown and Rochester. Given that he died in 1899, this illustrates that these Upstate and Long Island communities have long time Black populations/communities.

There are other years you can view as well. As mentioned earlier in the thread, this NFL player is from this community: Chatham's Josh Keyes signs with Texans
Josh Keyes - 2014 Football Roster - Boston College
He is also the school's all time leading rusher and in terms of points scored: New York H.S. football record book, scoring
New York high school football record book

Also, this is the church, which has also been mentioned earlier in the thread: https://www.yellowpages.com/chatham-...hurch-19523356
