The idea for this joint tour, which kicked off Sept. The two marquee names will take the stage together with Beach Boys members Al Jardine and David Marks and delve into an inventory of hits. So what is left for a man who has seemingly achieved every musical milestone to accomplish?
The Delaware is the middle valley, and the town contained nearly all that part of Ulster county lying within it. It is one of the original towns of Delaware county, as well as one of the oldest, and formerly covered all the territory of the present towns of Roxbury, Bovina, Middletown, Andes, Colchester and Hancock; nearly all of Stamford, a large part of Delhi, Hamden, Walton and Tompkins, and a small portion of Shandaken, in Ulster County, comprising more than half of the whole county of Delaware.
By division it has been reduced to a territory of about fifty thousand acres or seventy-nine square miles, with a population of about three thousand inhabitants, or thirty-eight to the square mile. It lies in the southeast corner of the county, with Greene and Ulster counties on the east and south, and the towns of Roxbury Bovina and Andes on the north and west.
The Pepacton or east branch of the Delaware flows through it centrally, in a southwesterly direction, with the Batavia kill, Bush kill, Fry brook and Mill brook emptying into it from the east; and the Platte kill and several smaller streams from the west.
Each of these streams drains a fertile valley, having a similar topography, being broader and less inclined in the upper and central portions, but becoming narrow and descending more rapidly as they approach the main valley, causing the steams to rush over rapids or falls, forming an abundance of excellent water power.
The surface is hilly, and in the eastern parts mountainous. East of the Delaware river spurs from the Catskills intersect the town, running in a southwesterly direction between the valleys, and are steep and rugged, but heavily timbered;west of the river they are less elevated and broader, and can usually be cultivated to the tops.
All the hills are more steep and rocky on the northern and western sides, while toward the east and south they slope off gradually into good farming and grazing lands. The highest elevation is reached one and a half miles east of the village of Margaretville, at three thousand feet above tide.
The prevailing rock is the old red sandstone of the New York series, which is highly stratified, and in many localities furnishes excellent flagging and building stone, in quantities sufficient to warrant a considerable trade in that article when prices will pay for transportation.
Underlying the sandstone is a red shaly rock stratum of considerable thickness, which crops our is deep gorges where the water flow has worn through the sandstone, and sometimes makes the appearance on the hillsides; but more frequently on the tops, where the superincumbent strata have been worn away by the action of the elements.
It is the disintegration of this rock which gives the red color to the soil, so noticeable in Delaware county, especially in the northern part. The soil in the Delaware bottom is alluvial, composed of sand, loam, and shale washed down from the mountain sides, and is very productive.
It is the accumulation of ages, as shown by the position of pebble stones near the mouth of small streams, which, at the depth of twenty or more feet show the same relation to the action of the water as on the surface.

Driftwood is found at considerable depths, and everywhere the stones are worn smooth by the action of water. Corn and Oats are especially adapted to this soil, and it produces excellent grass. The uplands contain a large percentage of clay, which, mixed with the other constituents of the soil, forms a hard pan, often impervious to water, and which, when near the surface, renders the cultivation of winter crops very difficult.
This formation is better adapted to grazing purposes and the cultivation of timothy grass than grain raisin; yet it produces good crops of oats, buckwheat and potatoes, and rye is frequently grows on the dry parts. Wheat was staple crop when the country was new and the ashes of the burnt timber furnished the necessary alkali; but the want of lime in the soil has long since tendered its cultivation unprofitable.
The best sill is found in localities where the red shale predominates. Analysis shows it to be rich in iron, and the color is no doubt derived from the red oxide of that metal. It produces good crops of all kinds; but is especially adapted to the cultivation of potatoes.
As many as ten crops in succession have been produced from the same locality, without any apparent diminution in the yield.
The great potato region of the county, however, is found in the more elevated towns of Stamford, Kortright, and Harpersfield. Middletown forms a part of the dairying region of Delaware county. Maple, beech, birch, ash basswood and oak are natural forest trees.
The pine of early times and the forests of hemlock have now nearly disappeared, large quantities of which have been floated down the Delaware by lumbermen.
The population above referred to, about 3, was shown by the last State census to be 3, a figure reached by a general though not uninterrupted growth during the last forty-five years, as the annexed census returns during that period taken from the Legislative Manual will show: The history of this mother of towns properly begins with a period when its territory was but a spot in the vast hunting grounds of the primitive tribes which claimed these valleys.
Their unlettered generations have left but little to confirm the tradition of their existence, and mire than a century ago the westward course of the white man's empire swept them away.Search and browse our historical collection to find news, notices of births, marriages and deaths, sports, comics, and much more.
Here is the comment I made when I inaugurated this list on 1 September ; since then, the list has evolved to encompass both vocal and instrumental musical compositions: Today, I thought I'd share with my readers a new feature for "Notablog" and a new page on my site.I have been promising readers to inaugurate additional "My Favorite Things" pages, pointing to such things as favorite books.
