Terre Hill, Woodard, New York State: Surrounding History & Exploration
An essay by Patrick R. F. Blakley

Ok, it’s been a while since I posted anything here, but it’s with good reason! I’ve recently just completed a 17,500+ word research paper focused on the Terre Hill area of Woodard, NY inside the town of Clay. This is not at all drum related, though I did sneak in a marching band fact with historical relevance. I don’t blame you if you just scroll past this one, but if you’re in the area you might feel a little compelled to check it out! I’ve also included a family tree as well as some family ties to Terre Hill. Primarily family names that were focused on such as Blakley, Postle, and Relyea, with ties to the family names of Teska, and Weller. If any of this interests you please check out some of the following links with much more information:
