Dutchess County NY from French's Gazetteer

The Dutchess and Orange Counties chapters in Mather & Brockett's Geographical History of the State of New York (1848)

 

Only a dozen years before French's Gazetteer, but a world of difference!  Treatment of these counties in the six pages allotted is fairly comprehensive in its treatment of the county's physical geography, somewhat weaker in terms of the history and definitely a little spotty in coverage of the towns that comprised it.  The two counties are grouped together by the authors.  We also include the two page summary of New York State land grants for background in this download.  6++ pages, PDF format, download now for $2.75

Dutchess and Orange Counties from Mather & Brockett

Charity in New York State in 1906:  Dutchess County.  We are in the process of republishing sections of volume II of the Annual Report of the State Board of Charities for the year 1906.  The material will be of interest to local historians who wish a better picture of charitable institutions in their locale a century ago, to genealogists and family historians interested in the people who administered charity back then as well as how any unfortunates housed in these facilities may have lived, and to those who have questions about the now-politicized "safety net" for the unfortunates in our society back in those years.  This section addresses the public and private charities in Dutchess County in 1906 that were registered with the State Board of Charities.  8++ pages, in PDF format, download now for $2.00. 

Dutchess County Charity - 1906

 

The Old Post Road, by C. G. Hine (1905) --  “The Publick Common General Road and Highway from King’s Bridge to the Ferry at Crawlier over against the City of Albany”.  See our New York State Miscellany page for more information.
