With all this time at home, I finally finished one of the longest books I have ever read. “The Nyes of Fremont – An American Story” by James R Hanson.

Theron Nye was born in Madison County New York. In 1857, at the age of 29, Theron made the journey to Fremont to help start this new gathering of settlers which soon would become Fremont. In the Spring of 1871, he became the first elected mayor of Fremont.

I won’t summarize the rest of the book, but if you have any interest in Fremont’s history, this is a book for you. If you have read this book, I would love to discuss it with you.

The book also mentioned the May Brothers in several areas of the book. I am sure they were either acquaintances or good friends with the Nyes.

On to the next book, “Jens Hanson, blacksmith” by the same author.
