Overview

Excerpt from Historical Sketches of the Romer, Van Tassel and Allied Families, and Tales of the Neutral Ground

The editor and compiler of this volume desires to express his acknowledgment and appreciation of the courtesy of the writers and publishers whose kind permission to reproduce the several articles credited to them respectively has made it possible for him to gather into one sheaf the fragmentary legends and traditions and bits of family history relating to the Romer and Van Tassel families of Westchester County, which have hitherto appeared in print.

Miss Sarah Comstock's article, so much of which as is of family interest, published herein under the title "A Visit to Elmsford," appeared originally in the New York Times, some of it being later incorporated in her "Old Roads from the Heart of New York," published by G. P. Putnam's Sons. Its appearance here is by consent of the author and publishers.

Mrs. B. H. Dean's sketch, "A Bit of the Neutral Ground," first appeared in the New York Central Lines' Four Track News, which has kindly permitted its reproduction.

"How One Hundred and Fifty Dollars Will Save Patriots' Graves" was first published in the New York Evening Post, September 16, 1911, and that journal consents to its publication here.

The New York Tribune likewise consents to the reproduction of an article entitled, "He Aided Andre's Captors," which appeared first in the Tribune of July 6, 1896.

So, also, the Evening Mail gives permission to republish the story "Where John Andre' 6 Was Captured," which was first published in the Mail and Express, October 12, 1896.

The American Magazine, having succeeded to Frank Leslie's Monthly, kindly permits the reproduction of "Heroes of the Neutral Ground," which originally appeared in the Monthly in July, 1987.
