      Hi, Betty,
      I hope you meant Jerome:

      Jerome J. Case, Bristol, s/o Isaiah, s/o Jonathan J., was born in Bristol, November 27, 1828. Isaiah was born in Dighton, MA December 5, 1794, and came with his parents to Bristol in early life. Later he married Rachel Reed, who was born in Hartford, CT, November 18, 1797, d/o George and Nancy (Bushnell) Reed. Isaiah and wife had six sons and four daughters. He owned a farm in Bristol of 225 acres. They died in the same town, he on the 17th January 1877, and she July 7, 1882.

      Jerome J. was educated in the common schools and engaged in the pursuit of farming, purchasing, in 1867, a farm of 103 acres for the sum of $5,300, upon which he has made additional improvements to the amount of $3,000.

      On March 10, 1853, he married Lucina Dunham, born in Saratoga county December 27, 1832. Her parents,
      Ephraim and Mary (Wood) Dunham, removed from that county to Bristol in the year 1834, and to them were
      born eleven children.

      Jerome J. and wife have two sons and one daughter: Horace H., Annis L. and Sidney J. Horace H. was born in Bristol July 7, 1855. He has devoted considerable time to instrumental music, but his chief occupation is farming, hops being one of his principal crops. On October 7, 1876, he married Julia Reardon, born in Bristol, August 18, 1852, d/o Dennis and Catharine (Gordon) Reardon, natives of Ireland.

      Horace H. is a member of the People's Lodge No. 619, A.F. and A.M., of Honeyoye, and the Farmers' Alliance of
      Bristol. He has one son and two daughters: Don A., born October 29, 1878; Edna, born January 11, 1887; and
      Lovina, born January 6, 1889.

      Annis L., wife of Wm. McLemale, was born November 8, 1861 , and resides in Canandiagua. They have one
      daughter, Grace, born April 14, 1890.

      Sidney J. was born December 18, 1864, and lives at home, being a farmer and also a violinist.

      Jerome J. is a member of the People's party. He and his family attend the Universalist Church.

      A side note FYI:
      First settled in 1788, the town of Bristol is eight miles west of Canandaigua. It is named for Bristol, CT, from whence many of the early settlers came. James Case came in 1800 and John Case in 1802.
