Washington County, New York Poor House Records:  1827-1870 by Laura Penny Hulslander This is a major new source of information for Washington Co. research. The poor house, located in Argyle, served as a place where the sick, poor, handicapped and less fortunate were able to find aid and shelter. The records of the poor house contain a wealth of information useful to researchers. The name of every individual who entered the poor house was listed in a ledger book. Also listed were their age, town of residence, country of origin, reason for admittance and discharge date. Many births and deaths took place in the poor house and are recorded in the ledger but are not recorded anywhere else in Washington Co. Many a "missing" ancestor may be found in these useful records. A record of emigrants (1852-1862), mainly Irish, is included and names, ages, date of arrival and the ship on which they arrived are listed. A very helpful resource when researching Washington Co.
