ALExANDER RORISON, the head of a family which has occupied a prominent and honored position in Seneca County, was born in Scotland near Castle Douglas, April 22, 1763. He came to this country with his father after the close of the War of the Revolution and located in (the present) Centre County in the State of Pennsylvania, where he married a lady of Scotch parentage, Miss Mary Wilson. He was the father of twelve children, of whom six lived to mature years. In the year 1798, he removed to a farm in the present Town of Fayette (then Romulus) which he cleared, improved and occupied until his death. The removal from Pennsylvania was made in the old time four horse covered Pennsylvania wagon, and by boat on Seneca Lake. As early as January, 1802, he served by appointment, as justice of the peace for Cayuga County and in 1805, his townsmen called upon him to take part in the local government by electing him assessor, to which position he was repeatedly chosen, as also commissioner of highways.

In 1818, he was elected supervisor of Fayette and served as chairman of the board of supervisors in that year.

Two of his sons, James and Alexander, Jr., were afterwards elected as supervisors of the town.

He died Dec. 27, 1832, and his mortal remains repose in the Burgh Cemetery. His wife and several children survived him— all since deceased.
