Remembering Roger Huntley

Well-know auctioneer Roger Huntley died yesterday. He was 82 and had been in failing health. Huntley was the sixth generation of his family to operate their 300-acre dairy farm in the St. Lawrence County Town of Pierrepont. He was a familiar figure in the Crary Mills neighborhood.

Crary Mills is a little four corner settlement now - a hamlet with a church, a cemetery, a grange hall, and the Crary Mills Mighty Mall - an antiques place Roger and his wife Ann opened several years ago.
