About this Issue
Note from the Editors
David D. Robinson writes more about the formations on Bluff Point along the ridge between the forks of Lake Keuka, and of the possibility of learning what may lie under the surface at the site of the ruins. Dave, who lives in Swain, New York, has visited Celtic sites in Great Britain that seem to have similarities to the 1880 description of the earthworks at Bluff Point. Dave's first article about the Bluff Point ruin appeared in the November 1993 issue of the Crooked Lake Review. Dave's first article about Canisteo Castle appeared in the November 1995 issue. His article Canisteo Castle Builders appeared in the February 1996 issue.
George Dickey presents another version of what may have happened 200 years ago and earlier at Canisteo Castle. Mr. Dickey sent his views about the early history of Canisteo to Mr. David Robinson who has written several articles about "Canisteo Castle." Dave Robinson urged him to offer his notes and observations for publication here. George Dickey lives in Cameron, New York.
J. Terrence O'Herron recalls his grandmother Josephine Muldoon and the stories she told him about family life near Belfast in Allegany County, New York. Mr. O'Herron wrote about his grandmother in 1967 for a paper that was a part of a course on New York History and Folklore taught by Dr. Herbert A. Wisbey, Jr. Professor Wisbey suggested that Mr. O'Herron's paper be published in the Crooked Lake Review. J. Terrence O'Herron lives in Horseheads and teaches social studies at the high school there.
Thomas D. Cornell's fourth essay in his series on "Searching For the American Revolution." This time he tells us about the importance of associating events with the land where they occurred, and how these connections have made history alive for him. Tom Cornell lives in Rochester and teaches history courses at R.I.T.
Robert V. Anderson continues his account of how bricks were made in Auburn, New York at the Kelsey-Harvey brickyard. His wife's family ran the brick making business for many years, and she inherited a trunkful of papers that reveal much of the history of the enterprise and of the development of Auburn. The Anderson live in New Hartford, New York.
We present another installment from Floyd Griswold Greene's recollections about growing up around Rogersville, New York, that he wrote for his daughters and their children in the late 1940s. His daughter, Margaret Kindig of Pittsford, sent her father's story to Robert Koch for the readers of the Crooked Lake Review.
The June issue will bring The 'Fielding' of Penn-Yan Bill by Jane P. Davis, and continue Tom Cornell's essays, Robert V. Anderson's history of the Kelsey-Harvey brickyard, and F. G. Greene's Autobiographical Sketches.
