Wilkeson

Judge: Samuel Wilkeson

Judge Samuel Wilkeson (mayor, assemblyman & father of the city of Buffalo) fought the Brits during the raid on Buffalo in 1814. He then relocated to assist in the rebuliding of the village. With his endless efforts, he got loans approved to build a harbor in Buffalo. If the Superior was successful in the harbor, then Buffalo would be the western terminous of the Erie Canal.
