: Where did you grow up in NY state? I spent much of my childhood in the Catskills near Margaretville. My family has been there since the 1700s.
Hi, Chris... I was born in Buffalo, but spent my childhood in Carthage, NY....WAY up north, near Watertown, and getting close to Canada. It was a VERY small town. The first place we lived was in the country, across from Black River, and with the Adirondack Forest in our back yard. Loved that place. Ice skating on the river in winter, raising turkeys, chasing horses out of the garden, and picking berries in the woods in summer. One thing I will always remember was the beauty of the rocks....even walking down a dirt road, the little bitty rocks on the road were each so beautiful! Lots of colored striations...and the boulders and bigger rocks lying around were gorgeous. New York State is such a beautiful place!
Margaretville? Where again exactly? Wow, you've got ROOTS! Mine don't go back that far, in this country.
