Also listed at this residence are Leona G (29)- wife, Mary A Lyon (69 and widowed)- grandmother, Robert Sanford (11)- boarder. Wylie and Leona were married December 11, 1920.

Happy New Year and Welcome to the Roaring 20's. Bainbridge Republican and Express- January 1st, 1920

CHRISTMAS FESTIVITIES AT THE JULIUS KAYSER COMPANY'S BAINBRIDGE BRANCH

The employees of the Kayser Co. were well remembered by the company at Christmas time; as all employees who have been with the company on year participated in a profit sharing distribution, which is distributed at the Holiday Season.

The rate of per cent increasing with each continuous year of service. The rate this year in some instances being as high as 6.8775 per cent of the salary received.

From the receiving of the present from the company the Christmas spirit prevailed. Miss Forrest suggested a Christmas tree at the mill for all employees. The suggestion met with a ready response. The mill and tree was most beautifully decorated, under the supervision of Miss Lyra Payne, Mrs. Julia Parsons.

The names of all employees were put in a box shook up and drawn out and the present not to exceed 50 cents was to be given the one drawn.

Miss Forrest is always very mumm about holiday time but The Kayser Girls have memories and one remembered a conversation in which Miss Forrest had made the statement that some day she was going to have a piece of cut glass. She received from the employees with their love and respect "that piece of cut glass", a beautiful salad dish.

After the distribution of presents 75 members partook of a Christmas supper ably planned and served by Mrs. Frank oles and her assistants.

A number were on the sick list but were not forgotten.

Throughout all; the Christmas spirit of "Peace on Earth Good Will toward Men" prevailed and the wish expressed, was for a repetition of the same in 1920.

I live in Cayuga County, and my daughter attends school in Oneonta, so we use Route 206 between 81 and 88. I'm very curious about some ruins on either side of 206 north (I think?) of Bainbridge. I'm too chicken to stop and take pictures because someone lives in a home between ruined buildings, and I don't want to creep anyone out. Can anyone shed some light on what the buildings once were? Or maybe point me in the right direction? Thank you in advance :)
I have an ancestor who lived in Bainbridge before moving to Michigan in the 1840's. His wife's name was Phoebe Adams. Their youngest son was Ephriam Wilson. I'm in need of proof that they are father and sone. Right now I just have the Bixby Genealogy book that says so. Can you give me any help? Church records or local census. Thank you.
