Great site home away from home. Enjoy visiting relatives and my birth place.
Grew up in Lyon Mountain until family moved West to Mn. Played sports in Lyon Mountain and Mr. John Kowalowski always had a uniform for me when we came back in the summer to play baseball. Played sports in high school and college in Mn. Worked in the mines as a maintenance supt following the family footsteps in mining. Started a business of our own for several years and then sold it. Married with five children and nine grand children. Really enjoyed reading some of these notes and messages from other former residents. Made the best decision in my life when I became a Christian. Made a trip back to Lyon Mountain a few years ago to visit relatives and friends and enjoyed it immensely.
Nice info, my dad started his career on tugboats in Whitehall, and later worked on a tug in NY harbor. Your info brings it to life for me.

What beautiful photographs! I grew up in Whitehall, right next door to the National Guard Armory building. Your photos make me homesick for Whitehall.. and that's something I NEVER thought I'd say. ;)
My grandfather, Ahmed George Hagez, otherwise known as "Ole George Hagez" lived in Lion Mountain. He emmigrated from then Turkey, now Lebanon in the late 1800's. He lived in Lion Mountain for many many years. He had friends in a nursing home near by. I think he owned a grocery store. I would love to know more about his life. He returned to Lebanon an old man, married my grandmother and they had 3 children. I believe that he died in the early 1960's. If you have ANY information, please let me know. We are planning a family trip to Lyon Mountain this Summer so that I may teach my children about their first ancestor who came to America.
I am researching immigrant labor in the Adirondacks and searching for primary sources: letters, diaries, journals, etc. Does anybody have any suggestions or personal records?
