Once again the “locals” are a goldmine of information- lots of familiar names here and also a couple of new ones, a birth announcement, some family relationships, and some occupations. I would love to know the location of the Franklin School House. I suppose I could check the old tax records. I will put that on my “to do” list. I have also seen previous mentions of the Blue Dale Farm, but have not gotten around to researching it.
