Re: Roundout, NY:
Since I posted that query I've learned quite a bit about Rondout and the D&H Canal. Great grandparents married there in 1850, and lived in Wurtsboro about 30 miles southwest. The men in the family were boatmen on the D&H Canal from about the 1840's to about the 1880's, almost until the canal closed. I'm still looking for my Hotchkiss family in Greene County. They are hiding very well.
