Many thanks to Bob Dorsey of Stannards, NY (formerly Historian, Town of Angelica) for sharing this old photo.


Fred Weeks was born 10/24/1864 at Franklinville, NY. He is shown on the 1900 census living with wife and two children at West Almond, NY (probably then addressed Bennets, NY).  These potatoes were grown and apparently displayed at the Allegany County Fair, unknown year.  The photo is shown to prove that Allegany County can produce not only the finest, but, sometimes the biggest!!
