Did come across this Register of Masonic Organizations. Takes a little time to zero in on each one of interest, but when you find them it shows the names of the principals, mostly early settlers. I checked Millport lodge, as an example, and recognize the names shown.

Mansfield Advertiser - 1958
Windy Smith Flies Again
Leon D. [Windy] Smith, of Elmira and former resident of Mansfield, has completed the reenacting of the first air mail flight which he flew from Washington to New York City back in 1919. Windy took over the flight two months after it was instituted and stuck with it for two years. He has now been flying for 45 years. Mr. Smith flew the same type of plane which had been used in that first run and was given a send-off in Washington by Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, who with her husband had witnessed the first flight. There were many other dignitaries present. A stop-over was made in Philadelphia and finally a change had to be made to another plane because of radiator trouble in the original water-cooled plane. This run from Washington to New York City was the first in the world to have a continuous airmail schedule. Mr. Smith also operated an aerial circus in Washington before beginning his air mail flights. Windy's comment about the open cock-pit plane said, "I nearly froze to death." He hadn't flown an open cock-pit plane since teaching flying during World War II. He also was a World War I flying instructor. He admits to being "over 60."

The Dams that were built in Tioga County in the 1970s caused the destruction of large land areas. Among the losses were several cemeteries and many houses and other buildings. Many of the lost farms had long family histories. In Nelson, many buildings were relocated, but many others in the area were lost entirely. We hope to collect some of the photos of lost buildings for this section of the site f you have any send them to me in HIGH RESOLUTION JPG format. Please do not be stingy with the pixels or I'll have to ask you to do it again. Please include whatever history you have on the building and its residents as well.
