From History of Livingston County:

In September, 1825 (or September 3, 1823), an Indian treaty was held at Moscow in the Academy. It was a quiet affair, and the place selected probably on account of its freedom from excitement or interruption. Not more than one hundred persons were present at any time. Major Carroll of Groveland, Judge Howell of Canandaigua, and Nathaniel Gorham, attended on the part of the United States. Jasper Parrish and Horatio Jones acted as official interpreters. A large number of Seneca chiefs were present, and took part. Mary Jemison was also there, and formally sold her *Gardeau reservation to Henrv B. Gibson, Micah Brooks and Jellis Clute.
*The southwestern portion of the town consisted of the Gardeau or White Woman's Reservation and was not in market till about 1823
