Joseph FOLTS came to this town in 1832 from Herkimer county. He was an axe maker by trade. He married Elizabeth CLAPSADDLE, who bore him ten children, of whom those living are William, of Mansfield; Sally, widow of John VAN SLYKE, of Sardinia; Elizabeth (Mrs. Justin MUNGER), of Little Valley; and Oliver, of Ashford.

Timothy FOLTS, son of Joseph, settled in Ashford about 1834. He was a moulder by trade, but gave his attention to farming. In 1853 he purchased the farm where his son, Allen C. FOLTS, now lives, and where he died in May, 1872. He married Mary, daughter of John FRANK, of Ashford, and of their nine children only Wealthy (Mrs. Robert FRANK) and Mary (Mrs. Solomon UPSON), of Springville, Frank and Newton, of Machias, and Allen C. are living.
