This, Too, Happened in Lansing - By Isabelle H. Parish Published by DeWitt Historical Society of Tompkins County, 1967 This modest volume of Lansing historical events and anecdotes is the unfinished task of Isabelle Wood Parish (1881 – 1967). The article on the Cayuga Rock Salt Company was the last for which she collected data. In 1962 we suggested that she make a selection from the material that she possessed, as result of years spent amassing Lansing historical data, and arrange it in publication in one of the pamphlets issued by the DeWitt Historical Society.
