In the book "History of Cortland County", on page 366, the author explains the following about Rev. John Lawton, a pioneer preacher:

"He was a pastor of a Baptist Church organized at Upper Lisle in 1804. Two brothers named Aschel and Levi Holcomb were at different subsequent years pastors of that church, and both of them occasionally preached in Marathon and adjoining towns. A few of the first settlers were members of a Baptist church before their arrival here; they joined the church at Upper Lisle, or "Otselic," as it was then called. "

This interactive map shows the location of the church and cemetery, located along the edge of the Whitney Point Reservoir.
