in Mather & Brockett's Geographical History of the State of New York
This early gazetteer provides a point in
time look at Schoharie County that comes at a decent interval before the
more comprehensive French's Gazetteer twelve years later. There
are five pages specifically dedicated to Schoharie County, and in
addition we have included the section about land grants and patents
statewide. 5++ pages, in PDF format, download now for $1.75.

A History of the Town of Jefferson,
by Mildred L.
Bailey (undated but
presumably circa 1976). Mrs. Bailey quite outdid herself with this
history. It is comprehensive, detailed, and complete. We've
seen quite a few town histories in this business, and this one stands
out as one of the best. Mrs. Bailey was the town historian of this Schoharie County
township, and we feel the town was fortunate indeed to have her.
