Biographical Sketches of the Leading Citizens of Otsego County, New York - Biographical Review Staff. When reflecting on the importance of collections of this type the editor of this present volume aptly quoted the Hebrew proverb “children’s children the crown of old men, and the glory of children their fathers.” Originally published in 1893, this two-volume set contains within its covers an enormous amount of information on the former citizens of Otsego County in the form of biographical and genealogical sketches often augmented with the inclusion of sketches of the subjects. Anyone who had ancestors in Otsego County during the late 1800s should be interested in the contents of this book. Now with a new every-name index, this collection is more accessible than when it was first published.
