There are two histories of Ontario County, New York, in the Internet archive.

The history compiled by Lewis Cass Aldrich and edited by George S. Conover, entitled History of Ontario County, New York, with Illustrations and Sketches of some of the prominent Men and Families, Syracuse (D. Mason & Co) 1893, consists of two parts with separate pagination, where Part I covers the history, and Part II the biographies.

The history by Charles F. Miliken entitled A History of Ontario County, New York, and Its People, New York (Lewis Historical Publishing Company), 1911, has two volumes:

  • Volume 1 (of which the first 100 pages or so are relevant to the settlement, Mormonism and the rise of Rochester)
  • Volume 2 (alternate scan 2, scan 3) which are mostly biographical
