Or Photos of Stephentown's Past

From time to time, fellow researchers will send me photographs or postcards, with scenes from the past in Stephentown. I have decided to place them on a page of their own, leaving the "Photo Album" for family pictures.

Please feel free to email me your postcards and/or pictures of Stephentown. I will get them posted as soon as I can.

These postcards were sent by Ray French

From my mother's collection of pictures:

This card was sent to my mother by her brother, Nelson "Pete" Sweener, in Feb. 1954. He was in the Army, and participated in the Korean War. He told me that on his way to Colorado for camp, he passed a store along the way called "Sweeners" and was so surprised to see the name so far West.

I found this one at an auction.

This was my grandmother's. She would have been 4 years old and I am guessing that it is something like a Sunday School enrollment, but not sure.

The following pictures and postcards were sent by Susan Rhenow.
