    Dear Fourpeaks Webpage Visitor,
    This page was created by Lane DeMuro for a wonderful website "lakegeorge-ny" which Mr. DeMuro has taken down because it's too much work (information through private email).
    Your Fourpeaks webmaster liked the page so much, it's now being maintained at with just a bit of updating and minor corrections.
    However I'm not knowledgeable about the history of the period and much of the text was optically scanned without review from sources unknown to me. The corrections are an ongoing project.
    History buffs are invited to contribute to this work with comments, corrections, bibliography and links.
    Thank you.
    Martin Schwalbaum, Fourpeaks Webmaster, Jay NY, April 11, 1999.
    Email me!P.S.   Mr. DeMuro said, "I know of no copyright violations for the material presented in this page. If a violation does exist, or if you have comments or information to add, please e-mail me." Mr. DeMuro doesn't want any emails, so please contact me at
    P.P.S. The tune, "Amazing Grace" is used here through the coutsey of Taylors Traditional Tune Book, Traditional Scottish Tunes in Midi Format.
