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.
Checking hakes during rev war
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?
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.
