Trudging up James Street, Patrick passed Shahan’s Blacksmith Shop (19 James Street), and the Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western Station (now the Homer Village Police Office) immersed in the inky darkness, leaning towards home. It was his usual path from downtown to the farmhouse and would take him north on North West Street (NY-281) past the village limits and northwest on Clinton Avenue (NY-41) before heading south down Creal Road, a lonesome country lane. From here, his house was just a few minutes walk up the dead-end Bishop Road, where his 200-acre dairy farm looked out across the valley.

Alas, poor Patrick would never return home that night.
