Saint Lawrence County Markers
New York (Saint Lawrence County), Alexandria Bay — The Chippewa Bay AreaHistoric New York
This area was settled early in the 1800's by immigrants from Scotland. They were encouraged to come here by agents of George Parish, a large landholder in the North Country. These conscientious farmers and tradesmen came up the St. Lawrence River from Montreal with true pioneer determination. The hardships of the frontier were especially severe since much of the land had to be redeemed with the axe.
