Re: Old photos

Here's one that was published today with my newspaper column:

Re: Old photos

Hemry27,
I love the Allegheny National Forest pic! If you wouldn't mind, I'd love to have you post it and any other old ANF photos you might have at my Facebook page:

By the way, I see we share the same hometown. I grew up on Doyle Road in Sarver. My dad still lives there, in fact.

Re: Old photos

I really enjoyed these old photographs especially the ones from PA. Wish there more of them published. Lots of history and memories that need to be passed on to the next generation.

My Grandma , 1972. New Mexico record for 1972, 16 1/2"
Grandpa dropped her off on a knoll,drove the jeep out of sight and got stuck in the mud. She shot the antelope 10 minutes after he left. He was pretty upset he missed it all. Mount was the only one EVER allowed in the house. All his were in the garage.

Grandpa butchering his last elk in the late 80's in New Mexico, he was in his late 70's. Very successful hunt as 4 guys got 3 cow elk

This one is from my area, not Pa, but still pretty interesting. These old timers were tough and they played by their own rules.

Noah John Rondeau
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Noah John Rondeau (July 6, 1883 – August 24, 1967) was a widely known hermit in the High Peaks of the Adirondack Mountains of New York State.

Biography
He was born on July 6, 1883 and raised near Au Sable Forks, New York with many siblings by his parents Peter Rondeau (b. Canada) and Alice "Allie" Corrow Rondeau (b. New York, d. May 1900, Black Brook, New York),[1] but ran away from home as a teenager several months after the death of his mother. He only obtained an eighth-grade education yet was quite well read, with a strong interest in astronomy. Before distancing himself too far from civilization, he lived in Coreys, New York, on the Raquette River in the western Adirondacks, where for fifteen years he worked as a handyman, caretaker, and guide. He gained some of his knowledge of the woods from Dan Emmett, an Abenaki Indian from Canada. He also made occasional brief visits to jail for game law violations.

Rondeau frequently hunted and trapped in the Cold River area, about 17 miles from Corey’s, and in 1929, at age 46, he began living alone year-round in the remote area, saying he was "not well satisfied with the world and its trends," and calling himself the "Mayor of Cold River City (Population 1)."

He kept extensive journals over a period of several decades, many of which were written in letter-substitution ciphers of his own invention. The ciphers progressed through at least three major revisions in the late thirties and early forties and in its final form resisted all efforts to be deciphered until 1992 (Life With Noah, p. 91).

Although he was considered an Adirondack hermit, he normally accepted visitors to his hermitage and even performed for them on his violin.

During World War II, in his sixties, Rondeau was apparently suspected of being a draft dodger, as he submitted a letter dated 4/8/43 to the Ausable Forks Record-Post:

I never went to Cold River to dodge anything, unless it was from 1930 to 1940 when it might be said I dodged the American labor failure at which time I could not get enough in civilization to get along even as well as I could at Cold River under hard circumstances in the back woods. Since I'm not evading I did not make my first appearance at Cold River on the day that Pearl Harbor was bombed. What I'm doing toward the war effort looks like nothing, but that's all I can do and I'm doing it and it is this -- I'm self sustained.
In 1947, Rondeau was flown to the National Sportsmen's Show in New York City by helicopter, starting a series of appearances at similar shows throughout the country.

In 1950, the New York State Conservation Department closed the Cold River area to the public after a “big blow” leveled the forest, forcing Rondeau from his home at age 67. He then lived around Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, and Wilmington, New York. Besides the sportsmen's shows, he worked for a time at Frontiertown and at the North Pole in Wilmington as a substitute Santa Claus, but he didn’t return to a hermit's life and eventually went on welfare. He was buried in North Elba Cemetery, near Lake Placid, with a stone from his Cold River home marking his grave.[2]

Lots of pictures too! Spent a few hunting seasons stumbling around the Cold River where Rondeau had his camp..quite an interesting fellow. I tried posting this the other day but to no avail...back in business now.

Thanks Tom. I may be able to locate a copy by checking with friends who are related to Noah John. If not, I'll let you know.
