Seneca County and The Civil War

Mr Walt Gable

We are pleased to announced a LIMITED supply of autographed copies of County Historian and Author Mr. Walt Gable have arrived.

All over Seneca County the noble fervor spread, and from Seneca Falls, Waterloo and Ovid, companies of her choice young men went forth to battle…


Though hundreds of miles away from the death and destruction of the battlefield, Seneca County, New York, contributed more than its share for the preservation of • the Union. Many brave men left home to fight, suffering hardships and casualties. John Hoster was captured in 1864 and held at the infamous Andersonville prison camp, and his journal has provided invaluable insight into what soldiers held there endured. At home, Seneca farmers fed Lincoln’s hungry army, and the legend of the Scythe Tree is a reminder of those who never returned from battle. After the war, Waterloo’s celebration in remembrance of fallen soldiers was mimicked around the country, and Waterloo is recognized as the official birthplace of Memorial Day. Local historian Walter Gable recounts the remarkable story of Seneca County during the Civil War.

Grace in the Afternoon




(A Cayuga Love Story)

Introductions  by: Carol Serling & Edith Delavan.

We are pleased to announced a LIMITED supply of autographed copies


One day, not so long ago; I climbed the rickety ladder to the attic in my very old cottage. It is always interesting to rummage around up there. Far off in the corner, under the rafters, a wooden box caught my fancy. It was covered with dust, and almost demanded to be opened. Inside the box I found a collection of glass photographic plates from the last century. The pictures were all shot in the Finger Lakes area by my Great-Uncle Ray and they primarily cover the years 1890-1910. It is these long forgotten glass plate negatives that make up this photographic journal, documenting the lives of two people who lived here on Cayuga,Lake and left a record of life in another era.

This cottage where I have come every summer of my life once belonged to my Great-Aunt Grace and her artist/ photographer husband, Ray Chamberlain. I had my photographer friend Edith print up these negatives taken by Uncle Ray and their lives then took on a more personal dimension for me. The photographs seemed to tell a story, perhaps a bit of a love story.

The Flats including the Canals and Industries

The Flats including The Canal and IndustriesThe Flats

Illustrated: Arnold Barben.

The THE FLATS including THE CANAL and INDUSTRIES is a compilation of materials gleaned from a number of Arnold Barben’s lectures, writings and notes. In editing this composite, an attempt has been made to retain much of the characteristic “flavor” of Barb’s style of presentation.
This compilation is not intended to be an exhaustive treatise. Rather, it is an endeavor to present only a few highlights of local history – just “skimming the top” of Barb’s extensive knowledge of the valuable heritage of this community.
