New York.

     Gallatinville, which is the largest, lies on Roeloff Jansen's Kill, in the eastern part of the town.  It is a station on the Rhinebeck and Connecticut railroad, twenty miles northeast from Rhinebeck, and contains two stores, one hotel, a grist-mill, a plaster-mill, two wagon and blacksmith-shops, and about a dozen dwellings.  The first store on the south side of the creek was kept by Adam Hoysradt some fifty or sixty years ago.  The first school in this neighborhood now remembered was kept by an Irishman, named Nicholas Conroe, in a log school-house which stood near the site of the present red school-house, in district No. 7, a mil south of the village.  Gallatinville has a post-office.
