Wicked Northern New York by Cheri L. Farnsworth

By Cheri L. Farnsworth

The pleasant, secure surroundings of the North nation belies a dismal and sordid historical past: a time while it appeared that each urban had its red-light district and each hamlet its brothel. Revisit an enigmatic interval fraught with pistol duels and "tramp camps;" hermits at the run, "wild guy" sightings and horse thieves. neighborhood writer Cheri Farnsworth has rigorously researched and compiled the region's so much depraved tales right here, just like the Potsdam guy who actually scared his spouse to loss of life, the lady who was once gained in a online game of playing cards, and the little lady who was once taken through gypsies, offered for 50 cents, after which traded for a part a dozen chickens.
