Politically-correct SJW History?

I’ve been considering deleting this historical blog, as a protest, as well to capitulate to the SJW Bandwagon. One thing is for certain: we’ve now reached Peak SJW.

Jim Wynne’s cabin, Upper Chateaugay Lake

James Wynne


Submitted by Anthony McPherson:

This is Jim Wynne’s cabin up on the Upper Chateaugay Lake. I remember in 1988 at least the walls were standing. It was on a little bit of land at one of the places that State Route 374 and another road split for a few hundred yards with a smaller road that curved down toward the lake and then came back together. I believe that it wasn’t far from “Stoney Lonesome”, which was near the Shutts property. I know that that bit of information doesn’t help much, but someone might remember it.

This would be a Grand-uncle to Elaine O’Connor, and related to the Whalens in the area. He married Mary Anne Brown from Chateaugay in 1889.

Henry McPherson Drowned

Henry McPherson of Chateaugay Lake, owner of the steamer “Adirondack,” fell from the deck of his steamer on Friday last, and was carried under the boat and drowned. He was about 35 years old and leaves a wife and three children.
