Long Life & Happiness to All Its Residents #17

Wednesday Jul 22nd, 2020

I have yet to reflect upon the earliest residents of Erie County, the native peoples who once lived here.  I’m overdue, and I apologize for my lateness because the 1888 book has so many fascinating stories to tell.  I will be featuring objects in the Historical Society collection you may enjoy seeing for they are rarely exhibited.

 I haven’t written about a person lately and one name stuck out in the 1888 book because I have never met someone named Orange before.   So, what started as being intrigued with a name, I discovered many fascinating things about Erie resident Orange Noble.
