Quotes:
Perhaps no town in the county suffered so severely (from the depredations of wolves) as Stockton. The deep recesses of the Cassadaga swamp, in this town, formed for the wolf a secure retreat, where, during the day time, he could quietly digest his mutton of the night before.
-- The Development of Central and Western New York
