CAZENOVIA ASSEMBLY. Old-Time or New England? Jig/Quadrille. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABC. Christeson: "There is a small resort town named Cazenovia on a lake of the same name in central New York; it is the traditional birthplace of Hiawatha." Cazenovia was carved out of the wilderness at the end of the 18th century by surveyorsJohn Lincklaen and TheophilusCazenove, who had been hired to explore new pieces of property in central New York put up for sale by the State of New York.The area was settled by Linklaen, who honored his friend Cazenove by naming a community and nearby lake after him.


The melody appears in the music manuscript copybook of musician Luther Kingsley, of Mansfield, Conn., started in 1795, and commencing to around 1815. It was also printed by Boston publisher Elias Howe. R.P. Christeson remarks that his source, Nebraska fiddler Bob Walters, would play this tune frequently.
