The Alta Heiser Collection Index Vol. 1, November 29, 1935 & December 30, 1939. Turnpikes appear as step in development. In 1825 February papers full of turnpikes. The Hamilton and Richmond project started several years ago failed because of adverse local interest and lack of perseverance of those who should have pushed it. What good is the most fertile country without roads over which to market crops? Statements prove a turnpike would pay even at a cost of $4000. a mile. At Fairhaven on January 29th delegates declare it expedient to construct through Darrtown, and Fairhaven. Bebb McBride, John Winton, William G. Field, R. B. Milliken of Ohio and five from Indiana appointed to petition Legislature for chapter. 20 appointed to open books for subscriptions. Samuel McFragee and Morton Irwin to Darrtown.
