"In the far north, the Cooperstown & Charlotte Valley ventured up Charlotte Creek as far as Davenport Center."
If anyone knows when this was abandoned, I'd like to know. Also did it allow the CACV to interchange with the U&D at all?

Construction stopped a few days after he died which I believe was in 1890. At that time, the rails had reached Davenport Center, but the grading continued much further east, away from the U&D grade.
