Submitted by Tamara Kincaide

NEIL C. MEDCALF a local tinsmith and letter carrier for many years. He was remembered by many driving a horse and buggy to deliver the post. The post office was located on State & Water Streets in Newburgh Its remembered by many how when the carrier would tie up his horse while going inside the post office to pick up his daily mail and when he returned to start uphill the young boys would run up behind the buggy to hang on to the wheels. The buggy was then unable to make the way uphill to Jennings St. MR. MEDCALF like the other carriers when realizing what was going on would swish their buggy whips in the boys direction to encourage them to let go. MR. MEDCALF passed away in 1935 and was remembered as a FINE MAN by MR. JAMES COX.
