Caroline Parker

John Maier was by yesterday, still pursuing the history of a Seneca woman, Caroline Parker, (sister of Civil War soldier Ely P.) She is said to have attended the Collegiate Institute, but we looked at the 1840s catalogs as I did for him before and did not see her. Discussed the academy, the records available, how people sometimes only were here for a term or two and didn't necessarily make it into the student lists...

Also helped him ascertain some contemporary newspapers and the libraries holding them, primarily Batavia papers, as that is closest to the Tonawanda reservation.
