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?
Thanks for the wonderful write up on J T Buel. I cannot wait to stumble across one of his wonderful pieces of metal artistry in some tackle box. Until then, I search and find other delights.
Was so happy to come across this site. My mother was born in Lyon Mt. My grandparents were Walter and Lula Peets. Many, many fond memories of all their neighbors who lived on third street. My mothers name was Patricia Peets and she married my dad, Roy Bosjolie. Summers spent with my cousins Vicky and Cheryl Thompson was always a lot of fun. Thank you for all the great memories Lyon Mountain! I will always cherish them.
I was cleaning in the basement and found a couple of old spoons with JT Buel's stamp on it. Interesting information!
Very nice pictures. It would be great to have some information about the poured concrete houses up on the hill towards 1st St. I saw them as I passed through a couple of years ago, and just happened to take some pictures when I passed through again earlier this month.
Never been to Lyon mountain but it looks like an awesome place, I want to come to the town and see the old mining buildings.
My relatives by the name of Cruller settled in Whitehall around 1860 would love more information about them.
Hello. My family that I used to go visit in Whitehall went by the last name of Gordan. My grandmothers name is Virginia (Ginny) and my mothers name is Barbara Ann Hopkins. I know I had few cousins living there. When I was a kid I would ride your dirt bikes in your front yard. If anyone knows any of my family contacts please feel free to pass them on. my email is firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com
I was very pleased with the extraordinary efforts taken in Out Of the Darkness to honor the miners who died. My father worked in the mines for a few years-early 1940's. His sister Minerva's husband Donald Lord was died there in 1944.
Hi, am so impressed with the information and all the photos...My Grandfather, Edward Benjamin Rhinebold, died in the mines in 1926...have visited the museum and was thrilled to see his name on the memorie wall. Will get back this summer to visit again. The people working at the museum were very helpful and very welcoming, they even went out and talked to my mother while I was in the museum.. Thank you for all of your work and look forward to my next visit.
