GHS Newsletter 13.1 Spring 2011
This volume starts with an article on George Decker by Kevin Berner, but Kevin then goes on to tell how he obtained the genealogical details. Kevin relied heavily on both the Stone Fort and the Historical Room in the Middleburgh Library, so we follow Kevin’s articles with a note from Steve LaMont on the resources available in the Middleburgh Library.
There are 3 related stories on the blacksmiths of Gilboa and Conesville in 1850 with illustrations by Eric Sloane; and “They Lived in These Hills” has anecdotal histories of the Nickersons and Newell and Goldie Miller. Janette Reynolds tells of the area flirting with silent movies; Jeremiah Reed’s Letters from the Civil War are continued; and Emily Schultes has converted her PowerPoint school project on Churchill Hall to a fascinating essay.
And finally, there is an article on the Internet availability of two 19th-century books on the history of Schoharie County: Roscoe: History of Schoharie County and Simms: History of Schoharie County and Border Wars. Searchable PDF files of these two books will be available at this site.
