||Hello. I have been browsing your tri-county site. Fascinating.
I have always loved the area, and have frequently visited for many years
(most recently in October 2007 for a weekend--I see the Luthers Mills covered
bridge has been beautifully restored!). I live in Ohio. I was
born in Towanda and was raised on a dairy farm three miles west of Ulster.
My earliest memory is of standing in my crib looking through the window,
down through a gap in the folds of the mountain, at the Ulster-Sheshequin
Bridge (which I see has been replaced) and at Gent Hill across the valley.
As we grew up, my brothers and I were the designated altar boys for Immaculate
Conception Church, to which we also provided firewood and stoked the furnace
each Saturday night in the Spring and Fall (it was always closed in Winter).
I attended St Agnes School in Towanda--nine miles up and down the mountain
every day in a '49 Willys jeep. In those days, Saco Road was gravel/mud
and our road, now called Noble Road, was all mud. My family
moved to California when I was a teenager. Just wanted to say how
much I enjoy your site. As soon as I have time, I will certainly
study it some more. I especially love the historical articles.

||Joyce, I am sorry to say my brother Bob
Lefler died [of cancer] on Wednesday May 7, 2008 in Knoxville,
Tenn. I know both he and Tracie had a couple of nice visits with you on
their trips through through the Tri-County area and of course lots of correspondence.
. Bob had a special fondness for the area as you probably know and the
family is planning to scatter his ashes in Jobs Corners during July on
their trip north to his home in Saranac Lake, N.Y. If you would pass
this information on to anyone you think might want to know about his passing
please do so. Thank You, Mark Lefler
If any of you want to send Tracie a card, let me know and I'll give
you her mailing address. Bob was a long time site guest and friend.

||The Chemung County Historical Society (CCHS) will hold a dedication
ceremony for a new historic marker on Saturday, May 17, 2008 at 11:00 am
at Knoll Cemetery in the town of Ashland. The public is invited to attend.
Knoll Cemetery is the resting place of veterans and of General John
Sullivan’s men who died on August 29, 1779 during the Battle of Newton.
The historical marker is part of CCHS effort to place historic roadway
markers at the location of major historic sites in Chemung County.
The Knoll Cemetery Marker is made possible through the CCHS’s LaBrecque
Fund and Endowment Fund. The LaBrecque Fund was created in
memory of Alexander T. LaBrecque, a past president of the Society. Monies
from the LaBrecque Fund are used strictly for the establishment of historic
markers or monuments in Chemung County.
