Catskill Trail
Jerry Cahill
My BAXTER ancestors after the Revoltion migrated out of CT to Delaware County NY. They supposedly traveled via the "Catskill Trail". Does anyone know the route of the Trail through the Catskills? Is there any person or historic society that I can contact to find the answer to my questions? I am posting this question on the boards of Greene, Ulster, Orange, Delaware and Sullivan counties. Thank you for any assistance in my search.
