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. 204+ pages, in PDF format, download now for $4.50.
