Excerpt from “History of the North Country”
by Harry F. Landon; Published 1932

Transcribed for internet by Anne M. Cady


The following biography is extracted from the “History of the North Country – A History embracing Jefferson, St. Lawrence, Oswego, Lewis and Franklin Counties, New York” by Harry F. Landon.  This massive history consists of three large volumes with hundreds of short biographies.  As time permits, I will be transcribing the entries with ties to Saint Lawrence County and putting them online.
