Sometimes you stumble across a wonderful time capsule of history like a diary or a book of notes extended through a period of time that really gives an insight as to the people, society and thoughts.  The following is taken from the records of Mrs. Nelson Burr, Secretary of the Class of 1877.  Over a span of at least 40 years, she recorded people, deaths, reunions and other data relative to the class.  These names have been transcribed as they appear in the records.  At the bottom of this listing you will find various notes concerning these scholars, as Mrs. Burr refers to them.  Over the next few months, stay tuned for more on this class as pages are added.

Mrs. Nelson Burr, as she is documented throughout her notes, is actually Lillie Chase.  She and Nelson lived on the corner of N. Main and North Streets in Broadalbin. 

The teacher, D. D. Crouse, married one of his students, Kittie Cleveland. He was about 14 yrs. her senior. She died young, in 1886. David D. Crouse later married Mary R. Brown. David died in 1909. The Methodist Church has a project well along of photographing all of the stained glass windows, obtaining and copying photos of those memorialized thereon, with a brief write up of each person. It so happens that D. D. Crouse is memorialized on one of these windows.  If anyone happens to have a photograph or information, please contact the Church Historian by email at:  to help in this project.  Thank you!

Ida Tymerson married Dick Lee.

Will Sheldon married Emma Horton (Horten

H. C. Finch married Lottie Barker.  H. C. Finch became a renowned Broadalbin doctor and his wife, Lottie was the daughter of another Broadalbin doctor, Dr. David N. Barker.

Ella Dye and Henry Dye are brother and sister.

Nelson Girlick is probably Nelson Gulick (Gulick is an old Broadalbin name).

George Stevens is probably George Stever or Stevers. George Stever became a well known undertaker and Stevers Mills is named after the paper mills owned by his father.
