Charles Herr will discuss the results of his visits to the cemeteries of Lewis, Herkimer and Oneida counties where he has located the final resting places of the pioneering and legendary early settlers of Brown’s Tract, Fulton Chain (Thendara), Inlet, Big Moose Lake and the Fulton Chain.
Herr will discuss briefly the roles of such notable families as Foster, Arnold, Garmon, Crosby, Galvin, Wilcox, Marks, Meeker, Grant, Tiffany, Covey, Wilcox, Codling, Delmarsh, Williston, Lyon, Gould, Wood and others, showing the final resting places of these families and their locations.
Since the Fulton Chain region did not have a formal cemetery until the 1921 opening of the Riverview Cemetery in Old Forge, many of these locations are at cemeteries in the Adirondack foothill towns at the gateways to the Fulton Chain. Some are out of state.
The presentation, open to the public, is an opportunity for attendees to consider becoming society members and for members to renew their memberships for the membership year beginning Aug. 1.
Inlet Historical Society cookbooks will be sold at the door.
