History of New Paltz, New York, and Its Old Families (from 1678 to 1820), Including the Huguenot Pioneers and Others who settled in New Paltz previous to the Revolution - Ralph Lefevre. An important work containing a wealth of information on the early history of this Ulster County town. New Paltz was settled at an early date by French Huguenot and Dutch pioneers. As the region developed, and the New Paltz families multiplied, they provided many of the settlers for surrounding the towns as well. Over half of this large volume is devoted to genealogies of the pioneer families. Attractively illustrated with many photos of early homes. The author was a member of several Huguenot societies and has been editor of the “New Paltz Independent” newspaper for thirty-four years when he wrote this history.
