In the year of 1827 my GGG-Grandfather worked for a man named Jake Vanostrand either outside of Cape Vincent or outside Lyme, Jefferson County, New York. In the Perry History papers that I have it states this: "When a lad of twelve years old, he earned his first pair of boots, working for Jake Vanostrand."
Does anyone researching the Vanostrand surname in this area have any idea of where Jake Vanostrand might have been living in 1827, outside of Cape Vincent or outside of Lyme? This info. would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Connie
