Sports references from the Watertown area: Watertown Daily Times | 2018 Times All-North boys lacrosse team (General Brown is located in Dexter, NW of Watertown)

Watertown Daily Times | Times All-North Girls Basketball Frontier League MVP: Leonard reaches personal, Indian River heights in final season

Watertown Daily Times | High school girls soccer: NAC All-North MVP Rowe makes up for lost time with scoring prowess (Edwards-Knox is a rural SD in St. Lawrence County)

Speaking of Edwards-Knox, I believe that this former sports writer for the Syracuse Post-Standard/Herald-Journal also attended that school: Marcus Hayes - philly.com - Philly
Marcus Hayes | 50 Forward | Newhouse School Syracuse University
(Correction, the school he attended is Hermon-DeKalb, another rural SD in St. Lawrence County adjacent to Edwards-Knox)

Also, another Lacrosse reference that came to mind from Chittenango in Madison County: https://gocolgateraiders.com/roster....lax&rp_id=2128

Professional reference from Buffalo...

Washington executive picked to lead M&T Insurance

M&T Bank has announced two executive-level changes atop its insurance division with the longtime president taking on a new role.

Kyle Samuel has joined the Buffalo-based company as a senior vice president and president of M&T Insurance Agency Inc.

Samuel has more than 26 years of insurance industry experience, most recently as a managing director for USI Insurance Services. He was responsible for growth and sales leadership in the Washington D.C. market.

Prior to USI, Samuel was the Managing Director for Wells Fargo Insurance Services and had previously led sales teams for Aon Risk Solutions following his time at Chubb Insurance.

M&T Bank Chairman and CEO Rene Jones said in a statement that Samuel "will be instrumental in helping us continue to integrate the property and casualty insurance and employee benefit solutions we're able to provide to our commercial clients across the bank's footprint."

Gerrit Smith is credited for donating land in Essex County for the Timbuctoo settlement(possible location of this institution), as well as land in the town of Florence in Oneida County to people of African descent and his estate in in Peterboro in Madison County(an Underground RR community, where the descendants of formerly enslaved Africans still live on Elizabeth Street and is home to the Abolitionist Hall of Fame).

Essex County is also where many of those killed in the raid at Harper's Ferry are buried, on John Brown's land in the town of North Elba. a couple of those buried there: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dangerfield_Newby
