UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL


The title for this section was coined by Rex Stevenson, originator of this site and contributor of the first profile of his own ancestor, "Captain Henry Eckler: Hero of the Mohawk Valley." The majority of articles below were contributed by site visitors and are a source of pride for their own family members to view on line. With a few exceptions, items listed are cross-indexed elsewhere on the site under their respective town or other major category.
