We have had a query regarding a balloon farm that was supposed to have
existed in the Mohawk Valley.  In her book, The Big Balloon Race, Eleanor
Coerr makes mention of a balloon farm owned by inventor Prof. Carl Myers in
the Mohawk Valley (no location noted).  Myers' wife was Carlotta
(1849-1932).  They had a daughter, Ariel and were balloonists.
Unfortunately, neither I nor anyone here in my office has ever heard of
this.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.
