    James and Ruth moved from Schoharie County to Onondaga County in 1806, settling in Halls Corners (now known as Navarino). His blacksmith shop was located on the south side of current-day-Route 20, in a peach orchard next to a tavern. James is listed on the tax rolls for Onondaga County in 1806. Also, John and James Jackson purchased land in Onondaga in 1807. This land is probably the land which became the blacksmith shop of James, on the south side of the State Road (Route 20).
