Includes folk art portrait of the "Colden family", plus painting of the house.
There are some errors, primarily dates-- as with many of these, the writers
had difficulty keeping the various Cadwalladers straight. The 1675 could have
been a transposed 1765, which is another date I've seen for the house.
