From Internet Source:
. The last 50 years of the 19th century, my great-great-grandmother Olive Stone BIGELOW ROBINSON (widow of Dr. Dewey Hubbell ROBINSON) lived in Troy, Rensselaer Co, NY with her sister Emma Lorraine BIGELOW SQUIRES (wife of John N. SQUIRES, Vice-President of United Shirt & Collar Company). For several years prior to the Civil War, the sisters and their children traveled annually from Troy by "packet steamer" to New Orleans, and then up the Mississippi River about 100 miles to Woodville, Wilkinson County, MS, where they spent the winters, returning to NY in the spring. One year, for some unknown reason, my great-grandfather decided not to return, and stayed in MS! I am trying to find out some of the travel details of these early "snow birds" and hope there is someone in Rensselaer County who may know something about such activities. Surely, there were others who made similar journeys! Would love to hear from anyone with a bright idea.
