Schuyler County was named for Philip John Schuyler, a general in the French and Indian War and member of the Continental Congress. Schuyler’s acreage is part of the Finger Lakes area preempted from the Iroquois Confederacy at the order of the new U. S. Government. Schuyler became a reality by state law in April 1854, an act effective January 1, 1855. At that time there were seven townships in the 342 square mile county.
