Elon Alonzo Norton married Sarah Cary Wood in July 1847. It appears that he also used the name Alonzo A. Norton as he is listed in the 1850 census as Alonzo Norton. He is listed in various census records as a farmer and/or a carpenter in the Freedom / Farmersville area. In 1866 he purchased and rebuilt a sawmill formerly operated by Spencer Crowel on Clear Creek in Sandusky, NY. By 1893 it had a capacity of 8000 feet and employed three hands, having expanded into planing and other services. This mill was later owned and operated by his sons Arthur and George after his death. Judging from his parent's census records he was probably born in Barre, New York.
