Ken Gottry - Cambridge NY History

I've recently seen Ted Rice (White Creek) and Ruth Wilson (Shushan & Camden Valley) posts items on Facebook related to the patents (land grants) that formed the beginning of our area. I thought I'd follow suit and organize some of the material I have.

Some of this isn't that great, but may give pointers as to where else to search. Somewhere I have the 1780 (1790) Wells map. As I recall it was related to the sale or subdivision of some family land (on the Turnipike). There are two dates on the map: the date is was created and the date it was filed (20+ years later as I recall). I seem to recall a lot of references to other lots in the patents.

John Patterson, attorney on West Main, has a great deed framed on his wall in the conference room. I can't recall the details (maybe an Ackley) , but it has references to the surrounding lots. Stop by the law office to check it out

Here are things I could quickly lay my hands on. I have tons more but it will take digging thorugh my archives. Click on any line to open in a new window. Right-click and select Save Link As to download
