It was traded to the US with the Treaty of Ghent and now many of his family are buried at Messina NY. The island was partially flooded for the Seaway project years ago. We camped up that way a few years ago and I was able to do a lot of family research.
Gee, I didn't want to ask about the Barnhart thing! No kidding? That is amazing. Yes, I was born and raised in Massena and can just remember the power project flooding the river. My dad's mom was a Campbell, and was born and raised on Croil's Island, which was a Scot colony in the day. We have spent many enjoyable days at the state park on Barnhart Island. It is truly a small world! My older brother John, who has offered their property for this rally, would remember the flooding much better than I, as he is 7 or 8 years older than me. I still do remember it though!

Now we run out to Buffalo and Fredonia all the time as our youngest son lives in Buffalo and our middle son, his wife and our 2 year old grandson live in Fredonia. We hope to move out there in a few years when we retire.

Looking forward to meeting you folks!

Frank

Is Jim's Finger Lakes suggestion still on the table? Anyone interested in Watkins Glen or other?

We'd love to meet up in the Finger Lakes! (If Jim or someone else wants to organize it.)

This thread is supposed to be about our rally north of Albany. Is it normal to get off topic on these threads? It's weird, because I'll think I'm getting a relevant post in my email, only to come here and find it's not!

Thanks,

Frank

Frank; you've been hijacked. We always get off topic here, makes it harder to find relevant info. Sue; don't need any organizer, pick a date, a central site, everyone reserves around that area, a time for a potluck, and you're good to go. Now back to Frank's thread!

Sorry about that! I just couldn't resist responding to Jack. But yes, Hijacking happens, especially when a group enjoys each other's company enough to want to get together in multiple venues!

Thought I was responding to Jim Norman's suggestion of Finger Lakes in this thread. Sorry buddy. Don't want you troubled in mind.

Help me out here folks. Is there a thread for a Finger Lakes rally? Of did it just come up in this one? I've looked, but can't find a thread on a Finger Lakes rally. Maybe somebody could post a link for me? Thanks!

We camp at Keuka State Campground most every 3rd weekend in July, and bring our classic speedboat for the Antique & Classic Boat (ACBS) meet in Hammondsport there. We're members of the Wine Country Classic Boats chapter of ACBS, even though it's 5 hours away!

Then a weekend I planned on being home is going to be 1/2 consumed by driving to NJ for an egg! Hopefully things will all work out and sometime this month I can spend more time figuring stuff out for the meet. I need to start getting names, as we will have an egg limit, maybe 20?

Enjoy your day!

Okay, an update.

So far, here is the list of attendees I have:

Herschel AKA BAMA
jwcolby54
cpaharley
Sue (spfar)
Brian M.
Ernie Z
Linda & Cliff Barnhart
Deryk is a ? mark I guess

We only have 7 who say they'll be there. I think we have thirteen 30 amp hookups, and could probably park a whole lot of eggs in their backyard...

More info probably after the 1st of the year. It's been hectic and only promises to be crazy till New Year's!

Here's some pics of the site, the dock (the canoe & kayak launch is just to the left when you're looking at the dock from land) and John & Nancy's pontoon boat in tour mode.
