Interestingly my great grandmother Frances Ann Chapman was born at Clifton House, Niagara in 1844, on her way from England to Charlestown OHIO, where tragically both her parents died, and Frances had to make her own way back to England when she was 6.
I've often wondered why she was born in a hotel! I'm still trying to find out.
I was reading about the Clifton house in Karl Mays book # 33 “ Winnetous erben “
The description was so amazing that I could see it in my mind.
I almost could picture myself there overlooking both falls , standing on the veranda.
Had to google it to see the historic pictures.
I found a copy of 1855 dinner menue at the Cliffton house hotel on the internet.
