Sometime between 1911 and 1913, Maynard and Ada moved from Davidson, Pennsylvania, traveling north into central New York. The family is found in the 1915 New York State Census, which counted the family in Ledyard, Cayuga County, New York.
The journey from Davidson to Ledyard is about 118 miles and the elevation between the two locations was a staggering 1,870 feet. (Davidson's elevation is 2,267 ft and Leydard's elevation is 397 feet). Maynard was a farmer working on his own account.
There was a newspaper brief, printed in the local newspaper as follows:
“Maynard Reese has moved from the Slocum farm and will work on the Morse farm the coming season.”
