East De Kalb

De Kalb Town, St Lawrence County, NY

Beginnings [1]

There was formerly a post-office and a small settlement at East De Kalb, the post-office of that name having been opened in 1853, with Harvey Bartlett as postmaster. The office is not now in existence. The locality was settled by Elijah Pooler and Chester Dewey. Thomas and Isaac Tanner, John Williams, Freeman Stewart, and a Mr. Adams settled here in the winter of 1810-11. Harvey Bartlett built a hotel here at an early day, and kept it for some years; it was afterwards conducted by others and finally closed.
