Former judge John Austin retires from county historian post By Thom Randall
‘Horicon Day’ fest to capture spirit of hometown tradition Crafts, games, vendors, and more
firstname.lastname@example.org QUEENSBURY — For decades, John D. Austin has served in Warren County as judge, lawyer, public servant and journalist. He’s investigated and reported the news, settled disputes, presided over family and criminal cases, and John D. Austin brightened many children’s lives. For the last seven years, serving as Warren County historian, he’s helped people identify their ancestors. On July 30, Austin, now 75, stepped down from his historian post — although he’s likely to continue his genealogical research. Without a doubt, Austin’s history is as interesting as those he’s researched.
By Maureen Wilson email@example.com BRANT LAKE — Not since the golden days of the Horicon Fire Department’s July 4 festivities decades ago has the town
of Horicon planned such an ambitious townwide event. Dozens of people are now preparing for the Horicon Day festival set for Saturday, Aug. 7, which is expected to bring local citizens and summer residents together with neighbors in the surrounding communities to enjoy the festivities. Born from suggestions more than a year
ago, councilmen Joe Dooris and Bob Olson recruited volunteers and soon had commitments from nearly every organization and church in town to make the event a success. The day’s activities start at 2 p.m., with local crafters, artisans and local business people manning booths at the Town of

Investigators to begin digging at murder suspect’s home site for June Collard’s remains By Lindsay Yandon firstname.lastname@example.org MINERVA — State Police have begun an effort to clear and excavate an empty half-acre lot off Wilson Road in an effort to uncover the remains of June Collard, who was allegedly killed by her husband Thomas A. Collard here 30 years ago. Law enforcement officials are focusing their efforts on the site at the former home of Thomas Collard at 76 Wilson Road after a statement from Collard, 62, revealed the likely location of June’s body, police said. Collard, formerly a resident of Olmstedville and who has been living in Samson, Ala. for the past 16 years, recently confessed to killing his wife in November 1980 and dumping her lifeless body out a kitchen window into a hole dug for a septic system. He then covered the hole until spring when, his statement said, he burned brush in the hole,

SATURDAY August 7, 2010
Massive bicycle tour headed for region LAKE GEORGE — Nearly 2,000 bicyclists will be rolling through the area next week — the largest tour of its kind ever experienced in the region. The Warren County Tourism officials are urging area residents to be prepared to welcome a group of 1,700 or more Canadian bicycle riders to the area. Vélo Québec, a nonprofit cycling organization, is bringing their popular annual cycling adventure “Le Grand Tour” to the Adirondack Region Aug. 7 through 13, as part of a week-long traveling vacation. This year Vélo Québec’s tour is offering cyclists a historic route following the footsteps of Samuel de Champlain along Lake George, Lake Champlain, the Adirondacks and the Richelieu River. The route will also feature substantial mileage along the Lakes to Locks Passage, a des-

ignated state-designated “Byway” that brings to life the early nation-building activities of the U.S. and Canada, Warren County Tourism official Tanya Brand said. Vélo Québec has chosen the SUNY Adirondack campus as the departure point for the noncompetitive event. Buses loaded with participants and tractor trailers with accompanying luggage, bicycles and equipment will start arriving at the college the morning of Aug. 7. A tent village will be erected at the community college where participants will camp out the night prior to their morning departure. Participants will undoubtedly enjoy the area’s natural beauty while patronizing the restaurants and attractions of Lake George Village on the evening of their arrival, Brand said. A warm welcome in Lake George Saturday will include street entertainment, vendors, and

Ticonderoga will be the location of the second cyclist village. On the second day of the tour, the cyclists will have the option to travel a loop through the towns of Hague, Horicon, Chester and Schroon to explore routes 9N, 21, 8, 64 and 74. Traveling a pre-determined route of approximately 40 to 75 miles a day, pedaling roughly 500 miles in a week, they will eventually end their journey in Montréal Aug. 13.
ADIRONDACK, NY — The 11th annual Adirondack Community Yard Sale will be held Saturday Aug. 14 at the hamlet’s Community Center/Firehouse on the East Shore of Schroon Lake beginning at 9 a.m. Over 25 families participated last year near the area recently dedicated to fallen soldier Jeremiah Monroe as Veterans’ Memorial Park. This year, the money collected for the vendor space and any donations from attendees are to go toward maintaining and beautifying the park area. The community sale has proven to be a great time for citizens to gather and socialize as well as find great bargains. Spaces are not designated and it is recommended that those wishing to set up their booth should plan on being ready to sell by 9 a.m. A nominal vendor fee of $10 will be collected and the proceeds are to be donated to the Memorial Park in Adirondack. All are welcome to participate. For more information, call Janet at 494-2191 or Peggie at 494-4430.

music in Shepard Park, Mayor Robert Blais said. “Exposing our area to 1,700 cyclists is extremely important to our tourism efforts,” he explained. From 2 to 10 p.m., shuttle buses will transport the cyclists from college to the village’s Visitor Center on Beach Road. Special French-speaking hostesses will greet the cyclists and distribute a Grand Tour discount book. Many village restaurants, cruise operators and retail stores are offering special promotions for the cyclists. Throughout Saturday, the village’s lakefront walkway will be lined with jugglers, magicians, musicians and balloon artists. A steel drum percussion band will play in Blais Park.

McCoy: ‘Mystery’ sewer pipe likely belongs to state By Thom Randall firstname.lastname@example.org LAKE GEORGE — Town municipal officials say they’ve determined the “mystery pipe” under several feet of soil in Battlefield Park that was in May delivering clear water into the town’s sewer transmission system is actually a septic sewer pipe the state denied owning when it was dug up and disconnected in July. A local citizen recently reported to town officials liquid was bubbling up along the edge of West Brook Road on the edge of Battlefield Park, and town Deputy Highway Superintendent Paul Livingston responded to investigate, according to town Supervisor Frank McCoy. The liquid — sanitary sewer effluent — was emerging from the ground in the same area where 10 days earlier town public works employees had capped several sewer laterals — including the mystery pipe — extending back into the Battlefield Park fields, which are owned by the state. At that time, merely clear water — in substantial quantity — was emanating from the mystery pipe, as it had in early May when the employees had sent a robotic video camera to crawl through the pipes. That effort was undertaken in part to detect any improper infiltration into the town’s sewer mains. The odor and consistency of the liquid confirmed the pipe, disconnected in mid-July, was carrying septic sewage rather than stormwater or groundwater, McCoy said. Soon after the leak was discovered, town employees placed hay bales at the site to soak up the sewage, Hometown Septic was called to suck up much of the spilled effluent, the mystery pipe was re-spliced into the town sewer line, and DEC officials were notified. McCoy said town employees’ initial investigation indicates the “mystery pipe” carries sewage away from Lake George Battlefield Campgrounds, operated by the state. He said DEC officials assured himthe town’s response to the spill had been appropriate and no sewage would likely pollute the lake. McCoy said the state was indeed listed a sewer customer for their campground, but the state had assumed their effluent was discharged from a pipe to the sewer main under Canada Street. Although a paying customer, the state now needs to take responsibility for the pipe, McCoy said, and figure out why off-season it is delivering a substantial volume of clear water into the system, which is likely burdening the village sewer treatment plant. Discharging groundwater into the septic sewer is against municipal code. If the pipes are defective, and they are allowing the infiltration of groundwater, the state needs to remedy the situation, McCoy said. Some have speculated whether the state is bleeding faucets at the campground off-season to prevent destructive pipe freeze-ups.

Lake George school renovations under way By Thom Randall email@example.com LAKE GEORGE — When students at the two Lake George schools report for classes during the first week of September, they’re likely to see upgrades in their buildings and campuses. The construction project, expected to cost $3.9 million, is likely to be complete in six weeks, authorities said. The Lake George High School building on Canada Street is undergoing extensive roof replacement, primarily in the area around the school auditorium. The new roof — with upgraded insulation — represents about 65 to 70 percent of the high school’s total roof area, according to Andy Caruso, superintendent of buildings and grounds for the Lake George Central School District. “We’re looking to protect our investment inside the high school building — which is substantial,” he said. “The roof repairs needed to be addressed.” Also, a substantial number of sidewalks and steps surrounding the high school are to be replaced. Beside the school along Mountain Drive, sidewalks will be cut back to ease traffic flow — to allow vehicles to pass more freely, particularly buses and emergency vehicles, Caruso said. The renovation project also includes replacing all the student lockers in the school, and new bleachers in the gymnasi-

um. The copper dome on the decorative cupola on the center of the school will also be replaced. Caruso said the roofing reconstruction was critical, as leaks occurred sporadically over the last two decades, and intermittent roof repairs were not solving the problem longterm. Taxpayers should reap savings from the more permanent repairs as well as from reduced heating and cooling costs due to the upgraded roof insulation, he said. In the elementary school, new sidewalks and parking lot lighting is the leading task of the project.
Also, play areas at the back and on the sides of the school are to be repaved. The playground pavement will include painted depictions of the world, the U.S., the universe and Lake George, Caruso said. Inside the elementary school, updates are planned for the health suite, including expanding and updating the rest room to make it accessible for those who have mobility challenges.

Pablo’s Cantina offers fresh Mexican food, patio dining By Thom Randall firstname.lastname@example.org LAKE GEORGE — Food with a southof-the-border flair has come to northern Canada Street. Ray Perry and Brett Lange have opened Pablo’s Burrito Cantina at 275 Canada St., across from Shepard Park. Pablo’s specializes in generous portions of hearty Mexican fare, served in a casual atmosphere, at moderate prices. Lange is owner of Christie’s and S.J. Garcia’s, two well-established restaurants that are enjoying success. Perry is the former owner of the local hardware store and is handy at construction, as well as serving on the Lake George Village board. Pablo’s is occupying the building that once housed a submarine sandwich shop, as well as two remaining businesses, Magic Castle Indoor Miniature Golf & Amusement Rides and Shady Business, a sunglass and novelty shop. According to Perry, he and Lange bought the building, and sought to boost the traffic with an enticing cuisine. “We say that Pablo’s represents a food revolution,” he said, noting the Cantina has a wide offering of Mexican-American fare rather than Italian food, which prevails in Lake George Village. Pablo’s offers chicken fingers as well as tacos, Fajitas bowls and other Mexican specialties to complement its burritos stuffed with fresh ingredients. The attraction of Pablo’s goes beyond its food, as its festive patio is right across from Shepard Park, so those dining outside have a prime location for listening to the concerts regularly held in the park, or

VFW Men’s Auxiliary raffles grill LAKE GEORGE —Local VFW Men’s Auxiliary Post 4821 held a raffle recently to raise money for the local food pantry operation at the Warrensburg Presbyterian Church. The fundraiser yielded $500, which food pantry officials said they greatly appreciated on behalf of those local people facing hardships. According to the VFW Men’s Auxiliary president Eddie Bates, the winner of the patio grill featured in the raffle was Esther McTague of Thurman. Bates said the VFW Men’s Auxiliary members were pleased to offer a helping hand to those in need, as they did last year, through their raffling off of camping equipment, donated primarily by Coleman Outlet in Queensbury. “We’re happy to do what we can to help the community,” Bates said. The VFW Men’s Auxiliary’s next fundraiser in their third annual chicken barbecue event, to be held Sept. 11, from 2 to 6 p.m., at the VFW hall on lower Main Street in Warrensburg. Bates said the Men’s Auxiliary is open to immediate family members of citizens who served in foreign wars. Those seeking membership are urged to contact Bates at 260-1212.

merely enjoying the pastime of peoplewatching. “We offer a tropical, Fiji cantina atmosphere,” Perry said, noting Pablo’s was likely to obtain its liquor license soon. “We have that Jimmy Buffett feeling.” Perry said his and Lange’s building is positioned right in the middle of the new streetscape enhancement project, and Pablo’s is likely to add to it, while benefiting from the sidewalk upgrades that are coming soon.
“Bringing in new life to a dark block will help everyone,” he said. “And with the wider, more attractive sidewalks that are planned, this side of the street will be more inviting for families to walk through.” Pablo’s not only encourages sit-down dining and take-out from 11 a.m. to late night, but they’re offering curbside service, Perry said. “Call us at 685-5444, pull up in a vehicle to our curb, and we’ll run the food out to you,” he said.
LAKE GEORGE — Caldwell Presbyterian Church’s upcoming 2010 edition of Vacation Bible School will offer a virtual family vacation of a lifetime with experiencing life in ancient Egypt. The entire family is welcome to attend the series, which is an excursion back into Bible times. The program is set for Monday, Aug. 9, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Church members said they urge all in the region to experience this fun, hands-on Bible-times event at Caldwell Presbyterian, located at 71 Montcalm St. “Each day your family members can become a part of history as they see, hear, touch, and even taste what it was like to live in Pharaoh’s empire,” Alan Chandler said. “You’ll explore authentic marketplace shops, visit Joseph first in Pharaoh’s prison then when he’s promoted to Pharaoh’s palace.” All are welcome to take part in games, dance to lively Bible songs, and sample foods as participants discover more about how God was with Joseph in good times and bad, Chandler said. “These experiences make God’s Word come alive with new meaning for all who participate,” he said. There is no cost to attend although a free-will offering will be accepted towards a designated mission project. The series is held rain or shine. To register, call 668-2613.

Damage from the tempest The severe storm occurring Aug. 4, 1910 burned out coils in the Warrensburgh Electric Light Plant. Lamps and candles were in demand for several nights in consequence and the lights came back on Sunday evening in Warrensburgh. Hailstones almost completely destroyed crops on some farms on the outskirts of town, Bolts of lightning played havoc in the area. Emerson Lloyd’s house in Bolton Landing was badly damaged by lightning. Plaster was torn from the walls, a considerable amount of furniture was smashed and a couch was set afire. The house of Elijah Pratt, up the river was struck by lightning. At the Sagamore Hotel, several large trees on the hotel grounds were blown down and the tanbark that covers all the walks about the hotel were washed away. Lightning struck John Bibby’s house at North Creek and Mrs. Bibby sustained a severe shock. A door casing was splintered and the telephone was burned out. The barns at the William Waddell farm in Wevertown were struck and nearly all the contents were destroyed. The loss was about $8,000 and there was no insurance.
Griffing family reunion As has been his custom for several seasons, Henry Griffing again this year is entertaining, his nearest of kin, the descendants of Nathaniel and Susan Boyd Griffing, at the old homestead near Thurman station. Griffing spends as much time as possible with his kin at his childhood home and the memory of early scenes has greatly endeared the place to him over the passing years. (Note: Stephen and Elizabeth Uhl Griffing settled in Thurman in 1800 and they had ten children, one of which was Nathaniel Griffing. Stephen fought in the Revolutionary War for five years. Their grandson, Stephen II, married Maria Coman in 1838 and they ran the Adiorondack Hotel where Rite Aid is now for eight and a half years before Stephen became
Concerns continue over North Warren squad practices To the editor: The attorney for the North Warren Emergency Squad says I am suspended. The letter from the squad says the membership voted to expel me as a member. The letter then states that the vote of expulsion is the beginning of the expulsion process. Is this not a little backward? You put your spin on things, take it to the membership for a vote of expulsion, then you tell the individuals involved what they were expelled for and that they can have a hearing. The hearing is only before a grievance committee, not the entire membership, and our side never gets to the membership.

Lost little girl remembered Dr. B.J. Zudzense, 59, died Aug. 2, 1910 at his home in Sparta, Mich. of heart trouble. His wife, who died about three years ago, was formerly Miss Alvira Dean, a daughter of Alexander Dean, who moved to Michigan from Stony Creek after the mysterious disappearance of their six-yearold daughter, Lucy Dean, who was lost in the woods and of whom no trace was ever found. (Note: When Lucy Dean walked into the woods near her home and vanished, she became an Adirondack legend. The late Edythe Dean Haskell, whose beautiful home is now the Stony Creek Museum, spoke about the story often.)
Assembly Point hotel planned Rumor has it that plans are being made by Dr. D.S. Sanford of Brooklyn and Lake George, to rebuild the hotel on Assembly Point, which burned about 20 years ago. Sanford owns the greater part of Assembly Point and nearby Long Island. A vast area would be improved if the hotel is built and the scheme for developing the grounds is carried out. Reportedly, Sanford has been offered $100,000 for Long Island. This is the largest island in Lake George and is situated about three miles from the head of the lake.
A long journey through time In August 1910, a four-year-old named Carmela lived with her parents, Paolina Casavola and Cataldo Areostatico in Taranto, Italy. Years later she became the wife of Paul Pasqualicchio and raised a family. They lived in Brooklyn Heights and owned a farmhouse in Stony Creek where she spent more than 80 summers. Carmela died in her home on June 21, 2010. She was 104 years old and is buried in the Knowelhurst Cemetery, Stony Creek. Her life was undoubtedly a remarkable journey! This is not a one-issue disagreement. The Perkineses and I have simply been asking for answers to concerns we have raised and we have either been ignored or told we have no need to know. To members of the community, this may appear to be all petty stuff, but I assure you it is about far more than what has been made public. It deals with accountability, equal treatment, honesty and integrity. Internal checks and balances should be ongoing for any organization in order to ensure that the level of service rendered never falters due to complacency or avoidance. What message does it send if an organization repeatedly responds with avoidance behavior to questions raised by members, town officials, doctors, etc.? They may expel me, but I will be able to hold my head high because I doggedly fought for what I believed to be right. Patricia Frasco Brant Lake (Editor ’s Note: Patricia Frasco, Terry Perkins and Cindy Perkins were expelled from the North Warren Emergency Squad recently, not long after they accidentally discovered that an EMS officer apparently had downloaded pornography on a squad computer, and the three reported the incident to agency officials and subsequently asked what disciplinary action would be taken. In the past, Frasco and others have raised questions about alleged financial improprieties linked to the squad.)
HHHN remains true to its rural roots To the editor: As board members of Hudson Headwaters Health Network and residents of Warrensburg, we would like to comment on Dorothea Potter ’s letter to the editor appearing in your July 24th edition. First, we share Mrs. Potter ’s pride in the excellent medical services provided at the Warrensburg Health Center. Our access to health care in Warrensburg is as good or better than any community in the Adirondacks, and better than most rural communities in the nation. The Warrensburg Health Center is open seven days a week and six nights. When our children or family members need care, they can show up without appointments. Care is provided to everyone, whether they have insurance or not. For Hudson Headwaters to stay true to its mission of providing care to everyone, however, it must have the financial wherewithal to keep its doors open. As board members, we see firsthand the huge challenges Hudson Headwaters faces to provide high-quality health care. To meet these challenges, Hudson Headwaters had to change its billing operation and how it keeps track of medical information — computerized records in place of paper documents. Most of the jobs Mrs. Potter refers to weren’t moved; they disappeared. Still, even with the changes to the billing office and laboratory, Hudson Headwaters remains by far Warrensburg’s largest private employer, with 132 local employees. This is more than the network employed here seven years ago. To clarify another point, Hudson Headwaters moved its headquarters to Queensbury from an office building in Glens Falls that it had rented for more than 15 years — not from Warrensburg. No clinical positions have been moved out of Warrensburg. Indeed, clinical positions have increased in Warrensburg and are expected to increase even more in the

Melvin Barton’s little dog Buster, of Hague, was picked up and choked to death by a large shepherd dog. A daughter was born July 30, 1910 to Mr. and Mrs. Edward J. Young, who recently moved into the Godfrey Watson house on Main St. in Warrensburgh. (Note…The Watson house is now the Alexander Funeral Home.) Julius McKinstry of Adirondack is working with his team of horses on the road around Brant Lake. Charles Waddell of Wevertown has gone to Cedar Lake to oversee work in the lumber camp. Benjamin Millington of Bakers Mills is at The Glen cutting hay on the Trisslen place which he bought of E. and W. Moston of Wevertown. L.W. Brooks finished peeling hemlock bark Aug. 1, 1910 on his job near Seymour Steven’s place at Knowelhurst. John Russell, South Horicon blacksmith, has bought the Bradford Hayes place from Arthur Perry and will move in soon.
World news: celebrity couple flees after murder Dr. Hawley Harvey Crippen, suspected of having murdered his wife, Belle Elmore, a vaudeville actress, in London and Miss Ethel le Neve, the woman who had fled with him, disguised as a boy aboard the steamship Montrose, were arrested at Father Point, Canada and jailed at Quebec. Crippen and the woman fled from London just before Belle Elmore’s body was found in the cellar of Crippen’s London house where it had been buried. Miss le Neve, wearing a suit of boy’s clothing, represented herself as Crippen’s son. (Note…Famous in the annals of crime, this case has been depicted on television several times in recent years. In 1910, Crippen, 42, was hanged in London.) Readers are welcome to contact Adirondack Journal correspondent Jean Hadden at firstname.lastname@example.org or 623-2210.
future. Hudson Headwaters plans to make improvements to the Warrensburg Health Center that will benefit everyone living in Warrensburg who uses the health center or may need to use it in the future. To raise money for these improvements, Hudson Headwaters is selling property it does not use and cannot afford to keep. In pursuing this sale, Hudson Headwaters has followed the laws and procedures of this community to the letter every step of the way Hudson Headwaters has been pleased to let the Town Board and the Planning Board decide what is best for Warrensburg. As board members, we make decisions on how Hudson Headwaters operates. Each of us approved the sale of the property to Stewarts. We believe that it’s a good idea to improve health care and strengthen our town’s largest employer. We also believe that Hudson Headwaters is an irreplaceable community resource, one that remains true to its rural roots. Jean Cronin Theresa Lloyd Barbara Orton HHHN board members Warrensburg

In 1958, Austin enlisted in the U.S. Army stationed in Germany, as both a company clerk and a rocket launcher.
When Austin retired from the bench in 2003, he was appointed as county historian, a role in which he served through last Friday. During those seven years, he was instrumental in upgrading information technology in the historian’s office, making many county historical records accessible by computer — much of it indexed. Austin’s wife of many years, Marcia (Behan) Austin, was a longtime teacher and school board member in the Queensbuy school district. She passed away in 1997. John and Marcia’s son Jay is an advertising agency executive in New York City, and daughter Susan Austin is a filmmaker, also in Manhattan. John Austin continues to live in the historic family house in Oneida Corners, Queensbury. Friday, Austin said his work as county historian was rewarding, but he was retiring due to health issues. “Serving as historian was very enjoyable,” he said. “I’m glad I was able to help people find out who their ancestors were.” Johnsburg Supervisor Sterling Goodspeed was among those aided by Austin in such a discovery. When Goodspeed was elected county District Attorney, Austin gave him a surprise gift: genealogical research that showed how Goodspeed was a descendant of John Richards a Congressman from Warren County in its formative years. Goodspeed noted Austin was a remarkable speaker and creative writer, in addition to being an outstanding judge, lawyer, journalist and historian. “John Austin has done it all,” he said. “One time he finished a great speech by saying, ‘I love this county,’ — and that’s John. He’s been a tremendous resource for Warren County, but he’s also been a great friend, someone you always trusted.”

Austin as local journalist, lawyer, judge
Austin’s early years, meetup with poet Frost Austin’s education had its roots in a one-room schoolhouse at Ridge and Hicks roads, where he attended second, third and fourth grades. In high school, he launched his journalism career early, serving as a news correspondent for the Glens Falls Times. Austin graduated from Glens Falls High School in 1953, and continued his studies at Dartmouth College. During his years there, he served as editor of the college newspaper, the Daily Dartmouth. While Austin was editor, the famed poet Robert Frost gave a talk to Dartmouth students, and Austin reviewed the event in the newspaper, Austin’s brother Fred Austin recalled. Frost was so impressed with John Austin’s write-up, he visited the college’s president and asked to see Austin, who was summoned to the president’s office to meet Frost. Also while at the helm of the Daily Dartmouth, John Austin endorsed Dwight Eisenhower over Adlai Stevenson for U.S. President, an action that prompted Eisenhower to send Austin a personal thank-you letter. Austin graduated from Dartmouth college 1957 with a degree in sociology. He continued his studies at the University of Minnesota’s graduate school — on a criminology teaching fellowship. During his summers after college he worked on a tugboat/barge on the Cumberland River in Tennessee, and fought forest fires in Idaho.
Austin worked at the Glens Falls Times from 1960 to 1966 — first as a reporter, then advancing through several positions to editorial director. Also during this era, Austin served as editor of the Lake George Mirror for several summers. Austin then enrolled in Albany Law School, received his law degree in 1969, and passed his bar exam. He practiced law locally from 1970 to 1980. During that time, he worked as an attorney for Frederick Bascom of Glens Falls, followed by his own private practice locally. During that period, he was elected councilman for the town of Queensbury, was elected Queensbury Town Supervisor, and served on the county Board of Supervisors. While practicing law, Austin worked as a part-time law assistant in surrogates’ and county court, followed by a stint as a full-time law assistant from 1980 to 1984 for Warren County Supreme Court. He was appointed in 1984 by then-Gov. Mario Cuomo, as Warren County Family Court Judge, a position which he was re-elected to. Then in 1999, he was appointed county surrogate court judge, a post which he was re-elected to. He also served on special assignment as Supreme Court Justice, primarily in Nassau County. Through all these years, however, he was fascinated with history and genealogical research. For decades, he helped many local people and families identify their ancestors. In the 1970s, he served as editor of the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, a national publication. That same year, he was named a Fellow of the American Society of Genealogists, a honor bestowed on only 50 individuals.

CHESTERTOWN — Along a byway three miles south of Chestertown is the skeleton of a small but proud-looking country church. Despite its modest appearance and outof-the-way location, the Darrowsville Church played a pivotal role in the growth of the Wesleyan Methodist Church in the North Country, as well as transforming many lives — likely saving them from servitude or death. Reputed to be one of the first churches formed by the Wesleyan Methodist movement after a landmark stance against slavery, the Darrowsville church is believed to be a welcoming shelter for African-Americans escaping slavery via the Underground Railroad. In 1843, a convention of Methodist church leaders was held in Utica, and their prime focus was protesting slavery condoned by the southern Methodists. After years of their pleas being ignored, the leaders formed their own church at this meeting, called the Wesleyan Connection. Some of the preachers ventured out to organize new Wesleyan Methodist congregations, and one of these was the Church at Darrowsville, then called the “Warrensburgh Class,” organized in 1843, by Myron Tripp of Chester. The church was founded about a mile south of the homestead of Joseph Leggett of Chestertown, one of the earliest active abolitionists in Warren County. The Wesleyan Methodist circuit riders visited Brant Lake, Stony Creek and Johnsburgh, where they eventually established congregations. The historic split in the Methodist churches, sometimes referred to “The Great Schism,” was influential not only regionally and nationally, but it had its reverberations locally as the other church in Darrowsville was a Methodist Episcopal Church with a more traditional dogma. The Wesleyan Methodist congregation, however, survived while the Methodist Episcopal did not. The Wesleyan group prohibited and protested slaveholding, and the use of alcoholic beverages, among other dictates. The Darrowsville Church building was built in 1845. Thomas Baker, an abolitionist minister active in the Underground Railroad, helped build the church, which has been documented as being a link in the Underground Railroad, according to docu-

The Darrowsville Church, located three miles south of Chestertown, housed an active congregation during the mid-1800s that played a pivotal role in the anti-slavery movement in northern New York. Reportedly, runaway slaves were housed in the parsonage of the church, led from 1845 to 1855 by Rev. Thomas Baker, a renowned abolitionist. Photo by Thom Randall
ments at the Town of Chester Historical Museum. By 1853, the Darrowsville church had a thriving congregation with 214 members, according to Wesleyan church archives. Thomas Baker, who became the church’s second minister and served in that role from 1845 to 1855, is reputed to have hidden and provided sustenance for fugitive slaves at the Darrowsville church parsonage, once located next to the church. Baker was wellknown in Essex and Warren counties for his
active opposition to slavery. In the 1980s, an effort was launched to spruce up the church, but since then it has substantially deteriorated. More recently, some history enthusiasts, however, have talked about a restoration effort. (This article is based primarily on the detailed information contained in Tom Calarco’s “Moral Rearmaments: 1820-1870” chapter of the new book, “Warren County — Its People & Their History” published by the Warren County Historical Society.)

dumped some lime over the remains, bulldozed the hole, and built an addition to his house over it to conceal it. The home at 76 Wilson Road has since burned down, and the site is littered with garbage and debris. Collard has been arrested under the charge of second-degree murder and is incarcerated at Essex County Jail until his case is presented to a grand jury. He has pleaded not guilty to the charge. In his confession, Collard said June went to his home and the two got into an argument, he hit her and she fell through a door and hit a hot water tank, breaking it. He then disposed of her body, according to the confession, authorities said. Investigator Scott Heggelke and Lieutenant Patrick Ryan of State Police Troop B in Ray Brook said Aug. 2 police will be combing through soil on the Collard property for any signs of June’s remains. Roughly 15 troopers and investigators joined members of the Minerva Highway Department to begin work at the site Monday morning. “We have had outstanding assistance and are making progress,” said Heggelke. “We are hoping to establish the footprint of the house that once stood here and go from there.” Complicating the search, officials said, is the household waste, junk metal and other garbage littering the site. “The terrain we are working with is very difficult,” Ryan said. Crews removed truck loads of garbage this week before breaking ground Monday. They will then begin the lengthy process of painstakingly screening dirt and scrutinizing it in search of 30-year-old evidence. “If this is indeed the site of the murder, we are very optimistic that we will find something,” said Heggelke. District Attorney Kristy Sprague said she is confident she will have a case and even a conviction without a body, but hopes the search is successful. “We will continue with grand jury proceedings with or without a body,” she said. “I hope for the family, however, we can get a body back to them for a proper burial.” Minerva officials said they are pleased to see this case approach the possibility of closure after 30 years. “It has been in the back of everyone’s minds since it happened,” said Highway Superintendent Bruce McGinn. “Minerva residents are all very curious about the investigation and hope to find some sort of answers.”
ADIRONDACK JOURNAL - 11
Horicon Community Center in Brant Lake offering various wares. Included will be locally produced maple syrup products, paintings, metal work, wood crafts, American girl doll clothing, pack baskets, jewelry, T-shirts, produce and much more. Also, the Brant Lake Association, in an educational booth, will be showing attendees how the group is effectively battling the nuisance weed milfoil. All day behind the local firehouse, the Horicon Volunteer Ladies Auxiliary will be selling grilled burgers and hot dogs as well popcorn, hot and cold drinks, and snacks. Nearby, Cub Scouts will be holding a tag sale. Boy Scouts will have an encampment and displays behind the town ballfield. Near the town pavilion, there will be a display of locallyowned classic vehicles, as well as displays by Brant Lake Collision. It is hoped at least one locally crafted Garwood boat will be displayed. For the young — and young at heart — there will be games and contests galore— a bounce house and inflatable obstacle course, along with face painting, a fish pond, coin pitches, and other games. In the Mill Pond, the Girl Scouts will hold greased-watermelon-retrieval contests starting at 2:30 p.m. every hour until the beach area closes. Two pie-eating contests will begin around 6 p.m. near the firehouse. Sponsored by the Horicon Ladies Auxiliary, this latter contest has two divisions, one for ages 12 and younger and the other for ages 13. From 4 to 6 p.m., an exhibition softball game between the North Warren High School girls and the “Geriatric League “ will be featured on the ballfield behind the Horicon Community Center. At the Horicon Museum, tours will be conducted and a new and used book sale will be held. Among the new books, will be the latest edition detailing Warren County history and local author Mary Paladin’s newest book will be available. Local musicians will provide entertainment from 4 p.m. and extend well into the evening. All events are free, except for food purchases and minor fees for the use of inflatables sponsored by the Baptist Church and the Horicon Fire Department. Tip buckets will be set out for donations to the volunteer musicians and to collect cash for the fire department.
The event will culminate with a giant fireworks display, presented by Alonzo Fireworks, at dusk. Folks are urged to bring their blankets and chairs. Parking is available and attendees are asked to follow the signs to keep traffic flowing smoothly, an event organizer said. “Please come to Horicon Day, and see what big things a little town has to offer,” she said. Those individuals, crafters, organizations and businesses that would like to participate, are asked to call Maureen Wilson before Aug.1 at 803-4082 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Event organizer Joe Dooris, a Horicon Town Board member, said Horicon residents have high expectations for the community festival. “As a kid, the July 4 festival was the ‘big thing’ in town,” he said. “As teenagers we helped run booths and had a great time.” He said he hopes the new Horicon Day festival capture this same spirit of excitement and family fun. “We hope everyone comes out and enjoys themselves,” he said. “We’d like to see it come back each year, attracting bigger crowds each time. In the long term, it will be good for the community.”

The Adirondack-inspired work of craftsman/designer Robert Stump of Wingdale, NY will be on display from Aug. 16 through Sept. 9 at Riverside Gallery at 2 Elm St. His exhibit will likely include selections of his stained glass art, paintings, decorated lighting fixtures and Adirondack furnishings.

ed the one-week trip. She was assisted by the chaperones. One of the sites they spruced up by painting walls and fixing up landscaping, was a home for unwed mothers. Brian Angell, one of the chaperones, said the Warrensburg youths were scattered among a variety of work groups so the children could broaden their experiences and get to know others from around the country. Brian said he was touched that one homeowner, where painting work was underway, was impressed the children were willing to paint for her. She told the children her son was in jail and she was so thankful that they wanted to help her out. Logan Webster, a St. Cecilia’s teenager, said he was fascinated listening to people’s stories. Molly Webster recalled that she and co-workers painted a bench at a home for unwed mothers and the residents were happy the kids put their hand prints on the bench as an enduring reminder that they had visited and worked there. The teens noted that even though they were expected to wake up as early as 6 a.m. and had to endure cold showers, they enjoyed the mission trip. Brian Angell noted the teens were indeed Good Samaritans in their work, and they witnessed real poverty at some of the sites. Welch said the teenagers now are seeking to accomplish work projects here in Warrensburg to help local elderly and those who can not do things themselves. "We can make a difference here, too," Welch said.

A special thank you to everyone from St. Cecilia's church who donated cash, which was also very much appreciated. A heartfelt thank you was expressed to organizers Shirley Collins and Heather Annis.

Reed family reunites On July 24, the relatives and friends of the Cecil and Isabell (Matteson) Reed family celebrated their first annual reunion picnic at the North Creek Ski Bowl. The guest of honor was Isabell Reed, who is a resident of the Adirondack Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. More than 70 children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and friends attended from New York, Florida, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Jersey.
