More about him: https://dailygazette.com/article/201...-was-amsterdam

http://fultonhistory.com/Newspaper4/...20-%200414.pdf (An obituary of his mother is in the lower right corner and mentions names of other families that have long time ties to that area of the state, an example: https://faculty.ithaca.edu/seversley/ as well as St. Paul’s AME Zion Church, was mentioned earlier in the thread as a former church in Amsterdam that worshipped out of the African American tradition).
