Thinking about May 22, 2021

She specializes in sterling and gold jewelry.  With the addition of her friend Laszlo, they also feature wester style boots and hats at their booth.  When fall approaches, Barbara sets up her collection of vintage furs.  They can accommodate contactless payment via credit card.

Episode 8- follow up information

At this time, little is known about Andrew Jackson Banks, the cook at Meads.  When I wrote Images of Woodstock I used a quote found in a Kingston Freeman article in which Mrs. William Mead was interviewed.  She referred to her cook as “Old Andrew”.  He was paid about $25.00 a month and worked for the family for over 30 years.  I would anticipate with more research,  other aspects of Andrew’s  life could be discovered.  There are more images of Meads in my book,   Images of Woodstock. They are available thru me at woodstockfleamarket@hvc.rr.com

My Mom, Winnie Davis and her friend Gen Whitely are posing for a German photographer who was staying at Meads Mt. House.  This pastoral setting she knew as Meads Meadow  is now referred to as Magic Meadow.

 The piece of information about Deanie Elwyn working as the “ second” chef for Harold Scism may add to the timeline of Deanies pre WW2 era career activity.   Harold was the husband of Deanies longtime  piano player- Flo.   At the moment, my thoughts on Maude the cook- perhaps she came to Woodstock with Flo and Harold.  Details will be posted as they emerge.

Episodes 3 and 4

Published in 2007,  Janine tells the story of the Maurer/Mower family whose descendants have been Woodstock residents since at least 1880.

 

Noah and Catherine Sitzer Mower's son Walter Mower is seen in front of the building that the family lived in during the late 19th century.  Walter is shown with a wagon he used to transport the fruits and vegetables that he sold around Woodstock and the surrounding area.  Walter and his son John Dave Mower had an exclusive contract to sell fresh produce to the Byrdcliffe art colony and also the communities of Twilight Park and Elk Park in Greene County. 


 

Walter Mower's great grandson John,  his gg grandson Allan and ggg granddaughter Emily sit on the front porch of what the family referred to as Aunt Nellie Mower's ice cream store.  The clothing store known as Lily's  now occupies this site.

Welcome to Exploring Woodstock History with Janine Fallon Mower

Episode 1 Welcome to Janine Fallon – Mower’s Exploring Woodstock History through blog posts and YouTube video posting. I will follow each video with additional information and photos that may be pertinent and enhance the video experience. Our YouTube Channel is Mowers Saturday Sunday Flea Market. While cleaning and sorting through thirty years of notes and reference material, I realized that I have hundreds of short bits of information that is related to the history of Woodstock, NY. This info was collected while I was working on Images of Woodstock, Images of Woodstock Revisited, Legendary Locals, American Tapestry the Mowers of Maple Lane and A View from the Sixth. The flea opens May 22, 2021 for its 44th year. Don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube Channel and like our videos. During the summer season I will feature different vendors and showcase what they are selling. I have the Images books and American Tapestry for sale. I can be reached at woodstockfleamarket@hvc.rr.com.

Exploring Woodstock History with Janine Fallon Mower

A new feature from Janine Fallon Mower of Mower's Saturday Sunday is being launched. Janine has over three decades experience with exploring and researching the history of Woodstock NY. She will be sharing short videos and essays that represent interesting bits and pieces of the fabric of the Woodstock NY community. While researching for the publication of her three books, Images of America Woodstock, Woodstock Revisited and America Tapestry, the Mower's of Maple Lane, Janine came across a lot of information that there wasn't room for in these publications. Now, she has developed a format that will allow her to share these untold aspects of Woodstock life. If you need to reach Janine, email her at woodstockfleamarket@hvc.rr.com or call 845-679-6744
