Towns

Monroe County, New York On Feb. 23, 1821, Monroe County was formed from parts of Ontario and Genesee Counties

The Town of Hamlin was created as the "Town of Union," but was renamed in 1861 as the Town of Hamlin.  It was initially a part of the town of Northampton.  The town of Murray split from Northampton in 1807, and split again into Union and Clarkson on December 14, 1852. (wikipedia).  Clarkson was recognized as a township as early as the 1820 Federal Census; but neither Union nor Hamlin appear until the 1855 NY and 1860 U.S. censuses when Union is recognized as a township.
Parma was formed from Northampton, now Gates, April 8, 1808.  Ogden was taken off in 1817.  It lies upon Lake Ontario, west of the center of the County.  The surface is level in the north and gently rolling in the south) with a slight inclination towards the north. The principal streams are Salmon, Little Salmon, Buttonwood and Long Pond Creeks.  The soil is principally a gravelly loam, intermixed in places with sand and clay.  Several weak salt springs exist south of Unionville. ... North Parma is a post office in the north part.

The first settlement was made in 1794, by Bezaleel Atchinson and his sons, Stephen and John, from Tolland, Conn.  They settled in the north-east part, near Braddocks Bay.  Among the other early settlers were ... Silas Leonard, ... who came in and settled in 1802; ... . (Business Directory of Parma, NY from 1869)

Sweden: This town was part of The Triangle Tract.  Settlers began arriving before 1806.  The town was created by a mandate of the New York State Legislature in 1813 to break up the west part of the county into three new towns named Bergen, Sweden and Murray.  The town of Sweden was established in 1814 from the Town of Murray in Orleans County.  The first Sweden town meeting was held on April 5, 1814. (wikipedia)

Saratoga County, New York 7 February 1791: Formed from Albany County

Northumberland: The town was formed in 1798 from the Town of Saratoga. Parts of its territory were subsequently removed to form the new towns; Hadley (1801), Moreau (1805), and Wilton (1818).wikipedia
