Another Character from Hudson's Past

Regular readers may remember that, a few years ago, Gossips became obsessed with Officer Frank Miller, whose exploits as a keeper of the peace a hundred years ago were regularly reported in the Hudson Evening Register. Many's the time, when passing this impressive monument in Cedar Park Cemetery, my curiosity has been piqued about another Hudson police officer who served the city a century ago: Michael Carbine.

I have resisted the urge to pursue Officer Carbine in the newspapers of a hundred years ago, but today I stumbled upon an article about him on the front page of the Columbia Republican for December 30, 1919. It's an intriguing story that gives insight into police work in Hudson a hundred years ago.



  1. Very Interesting. The Butler farm in Stockport is off of Route 9 where Pura Vida Fisheries is today.

  2. For a 20th century monument, that one is rather extraordinary. Wonder what else he did to get a marker like that? It must have cost a lot.
