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.
