Virtual Hike to Cape Vincent, New York

The next destination on my Virtual Hike was Cape Vincent, New York where my Darling and Hotchkiss ancestors were living in 1850.

The route follows Lake Ontario up to where the St. Lawrence River flows out of the lake.

Also on this same page is my 2nd great grandparents Benjamin Hotchkiss and Jane Darling. They are living right beside her parents.

The Abbey family stayed in Jefferson County and the Darling and Hotchkiss families moved on to Iowa with a short stop in Michigan along the way.

I am still way behind on documenting my Virtual Hike. I actually made it to Cape Vincent back in February. However, starting in March the distance I have walked each day has been much less. I actually need to check and make sure that I can reach my goal of arriving at a certain place by November 21.

The next two stops are also in New York and are places where my Braman ancestors lived.

Now to get a few more steps before the end of the day. I barely have my mile for the day.
