|This scrapbook was assembled by Joan Sackett around 1995.
In an effort to make the NYSMHS History Archives available to all
interested parties, we're pleased to present this information on-line.
The credit for collecting the data and photos for this album goes to
the NYSMHS Historian at the time, Mary Arnold. Mary was a
wonderful source of data and history about the Morgans and owners from
our NYSMHS family.
The materials as gathered by Joan and Mary follow.
