Kenneth Adsit celebrated his 101st birthday this year at Maplewood Manor 149 Ballston Avenue Ballston Spa, New York 12020 Tel. (518) 885-2288 Fax (518) 885-6709.

Kenneth Adsit was born in Halfmoon, New York and graduated from Waterford High School in 1923. He was married in 1943 in Round Lake, New York. For most of his life he lived on a farm in Clifton Park and in Halfmoom (the border went through the pumpkin patch). The farm was situated along route nine and what is now 146. The Northway (Route 87) goes through what was the wooded area of the property. The current Hess gas station is where the corn fields were and Cracker Barrel is where the melons grew and where the large box stores; Home Depot, Kinens and Things, and Michaels, as well as "Halfmoon Crossings" shopping centre are all on the property that was once the farm. I still have a box of arrow heads that Ken Adsit collected from his fields as he ploughed them. He travelled a lot and when he was 87 he toured Australia for a month. Our actual house was where the a'Park 200 Apartments' now are.

A photo of our farm covering this area is here - Route Nine is in the front. View the photo albums for old pictures as well as documents such as this 1928 purchase of Kenneth Adsit's car; his 1943 marriage day in Round Lake; the marriage certificate and many other items covering the past 100 years.


The original 1770s Adsit Cabin in The Town of Willsboro is now a historical site.


Kenneth Adsit is survived by his son, Terrell, and grandson, Sacha who lives in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Kenneth's first son, Robert, died in 1993, his wife died in 1992 and grandson, Leigh Neuage died August 16th, 2003.
