Is Ralph Dayton entry the earliest East Hampton town record?

(Written yesterday)
This is the third post I’ve written for this week, but the first two were discarded as the content turned out to be false. So here we are on March 7, and it wasn’t until I was almost finished with the second draft that I noticed the record I had been working on was from Continue reading
