Aaron B. Palmer, born December 1786, died December 1840, married Marian Harriman, born March 1787, died May 27, 1838.

He was a forgeman and probably worked in the forge at Franklin, New Jersey. They moved to northern New York about 1812 and settled in Essex County on a farm near what is now known as Essex Station. He probably worked in some of the iron forges around Essex County.

They had 12 children, 7 boys and 5 girls. Three of the boys learned the trade of Hammersman and worked in the different forges around northern New York. In fact, the family has been identified with the iron business in New Jersey and New York for about 200 years.

Above taken from family history compiled by L. Grant Palmer around 1921.
