Some years ago, while visiting N.Y. for a family reunion of some sort, we took a tour of one of the area wineries. My eye caught a
book in the gift shop, entitled Southern Tier by Arch Merrill. Being curious about the history of the area, I bought the book. It
was interesting indeed. I have borrowed liberally from this book. My apologies to Mr. Merrill. You may buy this book, or any of the
other regional history books he has written from Empire State Books, Heart of the Lakes Publishing, P.O. Box 299, Interlaken, N.Y.
The Popcorn Kid is a book written by a gal from Hornell, who worked at June's Ice Cream Company during her youth and became
an endearing friend of Benedicte June, our grandmother. Joanne L. Moran is the author's name and her book is available through Quiveir
Press, 702 Court A, Bodega Court Building, Tacoma, WA 98402. You may e-mail Joanne at firstname.lastname@example.org
Many of the Erie Railroad
facts came from the book Erie Lackawanna, Death of an American Railroad, 1938-1992, by H. Roger Grant, published by Stanford Press,
A great resource for facts on the Erie is Men Of Erie by Edward Hungerford, published by Random House. This book was
first printed in 1946 and has been out of print for years. I had to scour the rare book stores to find a copy. Fortunately, the Internet
makes hunting for rare books much easier than previously, and with a little effort you should be able to find a copy also.
some of the Hornell history information from a Histoy of Hornell project compiled by a Hornell student, Margaret Koehler, dated 1993.
Mayor Hogan presented this to me on my last trip back to Hornell.
