New Daniel Cady Web Site

I would like to recommend a new historical web site that will be of interest to anyone who cares about the history of The Mohawk Valley. It has to do with Daniel Cady, one of New York State’s most important lawyers in the late 18th century and early 19th century, and who was elected to NY State’s Supreme Court. He was also at one time a NYS Assemblyman and a US Congressman. He had dealings with such famous men as Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton. Cady began his practice in the Town of Florida, Montgomery County, where some of the Cady family still lives. He then moved to Johnstown in Fulton County.

Better known than Judge Cady, is one of his six daughters, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, campaigner for women‘s rights.

The Daniel Cady web site has only one entry right now, but it’s worth reading and bookmarking so that you can continue to check it out as the site grows. Currently, the site is uploading letters of Daniel Cady. They are being entered to make it look as if Judge Cady was writing a blog, which I like.
