Turning Back the Pages 6-5-10

(Note...Recently, around sunset I drove into my dooryard on Milton Avenue and found a deer grazing on my lawn. We looked wearily at each other for five minutes and than he went back to eating. I found out later that he had consumed my parsley plants and all my tulips.)

Deaths in the news

In Knowelhurst, Mrs. Charles Swanson has put up a fine granite monument for her husband in the Van Auken Cemetery. Schuyler Glassbrook has also put up a fine one for his father, Alexander Glassbrook in the Glassbrook Cemetery.


Because of computer difficulties there were mistakes in the May 22, column. Sisters, Mrs. F.R. Saville and Daisy Langworthy, of Warrensburg, were in Downey, Ca. on May 8, 1910, at the deathbed of their aunt, Alma Bennett.

North Country legend "Uncle Mart Moody" was stricken with paralysis at Big Moose Lake. It was Seneca Ray Stoddard, of Glens Falls, not Moody, who was getting ready to publish his 40 edition of his Adirondack Guide, "The Adirondack Illustrated."

A while back I wrote that Emerald and Pearl Pasco were the children of Alexander Pasco. Actually, Pearl was Emerald's daughter. Thanks go to the readers who called.
