Isaac’s Trip to Otsego County, NY – August 1877

One of the most important discoveries in Isaac’s manuscript collection was his written account of the August 1877 trip he made to Otsego County, New York, to visit relatives and the cemetery where his grandparents were buried.  Prior to this, only circumstantial evidence pointed to a connection between Isaac and the Carr family in Otsego County.

Over the next several blog posts, Isaac describes his journey with humor and great detail.  Through his words you will experience how long the trip took plus how much goods and services cost in 1877.
