Martha Rittenhouse Treichler
Martha Treichler and her late husband Bill founded The Crooked Lake Review in 1988.
When they arrived in New York State in 1975, Martha and Bill became members of the Steuben County Historical Society to learn more about the history of this region. They met people through the Society who inspired them to start The Crooked Lake Review. After a time, writers for The Crooked Lake Review formed the New Society of the Genesee.
Martha's story about The Great Orient Buckboard Race was published in the second issue of The Crooked Lake Review, her article about Sarah Lyon Davenport was published in the Spring 2004 issue and her article about the Jackson Sanitorium in Dansville, New York, was published in the Summer 2005 issue.
The first edition of Martha and Bill's book, Stories of Mt. Washington, was reprinted in the Fall 2007 issue of the Crooked Lake Review. The book was published by Crooked Lake Review Books. The second edition of Stories of Mt. Washington was released in August 2010. In October 2010, Martha was a participant in the Black Mountain North Symposium in Rochester, and a book of Martha's poetry, From Black Mountain to Crooked Lake, was published by Foothills Publishing Co. in Wheeler, New York.
