Dear John,
Thanks for that start.
I took a cursory run to the IRIS site and at least got the depth down.  I want to
get a look at the actual seismograph output for this quake if I can.  I'll run
around there some more and see what I come up with.
As for the local geology, Newcomb is located in the Adirondack mountains which is
an anorthositic plug contiguous with the Canadian Shield.  We do have a couple of
faults running through Town but I am not sure of the exact layout.

Yours truly,
Paul Jebb
