His talk was on the local skirmishes in the surrounding area during the Revolutionary War. At right, Helen Rees, Oneonta holds a stone weight that Natives used for net fishing in the area. The artifact, and others like it, are part of a collection found in the fields around the Swart-Wilcox House in the 1950’s by Emerson Horth. He later donated the collection to the Swart-Wilcox House museum where it remains on display. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
