History of the Rev. Crockett Adirondack Photo collection:
Rev. Crockett was living and a preacher in Indian Lake Village from 1928-1933.
He died at age 53. One of the sons must have received the cameras & old photos
when he died or his wife Grace died (unk date>). This son having the collection in
1960s who lived in upper NY in abt 1967 traded me a station wagon full of old
photo stuff including the approx. 175 (8X10) glass plate negatives. I had traded
several Zane Grey books for the load. I think I had advertised free in the “Yankee
“ newsletter. I have held these plates since (last 40 yrs)! The transport of the
items was done by a work friend who had friends or relatives in area where this
son lived & picked the load up with his station wagon.
There is some evidence of a few of the photos negatives being used for post cards.
Some of his kids are still alive. There is still a mystery as to which son traded them
to me. As Perley was the son still in NY, it was likely him. I have the letters of
correspondence some where in my basement & they will surface to tell exactly.
Many of the images were scanned in & put on a free Internet web site. They were
trashed from lack of visits at least 6 yrs ago! Based on Internet searching & my
past posting on Internet, it is highly unlikely any copies of these images exist in
more than one or two in families of houses owned many yrs ago.
