Oswego County's: Guide To Government

Peter Devendorf

Hon. Peter Devendorf, who settled on lot No. 10 in 1831, was throughout his life one of the leading men of the town. He was elected a justice of the peace several times, and for twelve years represented Hastings in the board of super- visors, of which he was frequently chosen chairman. He was also elected member of assembly in 1840 on a general ticket, voted for by the whole county, with General Kenyon, of Fulton, as his colleague, and re-elected in 1841, with A. P. Grant, of Oswego, as his colleague.
