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.

This isn’t the best quality, and it’s doubly exposed with a different image. However, it’s still interesting.treadmill
