1917 Rural Directory
Madison County, NY

 The following is from The Farm Journal Illustrated Rural Directory of Madison County, New York published in 1917 by Wilmer Atkinson Company, Philadelphia.
 Note: reasonable efforts have been taken to ensure this transciption is correct. In some instances spelling errors are evident in the published text - letters are transposed, names spelled incorrectly, "St." and "Ave." are interchanged for the same location, etc. I did not attempt to correct these. If you have a question on a specific entry drop me E-Mail and I'll forward a .JPG file of the original page for you to view. Please be sure to include the number of the page in question...
