Joseph Hawes Wesson, youngest child of Daniel B. and Cynthia M. (Hawes) Wesson, was born September 27, 1859, and was educated in the grammar schools and Professor Stebbins’ private school in Springfield, completing his course at the age of twenty years. After leaving school he accompanied his parents to Europe, where he spent six months in travel. Shortly after attaining his twenty-first year he entered the Smith & Wesson factory, where he worked at the bench as an artisan one year, and another year in the draughting room, where he made drawings of tools and fixtures.
 Too close application to his work had a bad effect on his health, and he sought to restore lost vigor, first by a short visit to Europe, and then by a residence for a year and a half at Colorado Springs, Colorado. Finding himself again in health, he returned to the factory where he became superintendent, which position he filled until 1905, since which time his work has been of a more general character. He has been a partner in the business since 1887. Wesson has an especial bent for mechanics and to him numerous improvements in machinery are due, some of which he perfected before he was twenty-one years of age. His invention of an automatic machine for drilling pistol barrels enables one man to do the work of five by the former methods in use. With his automatic machine for drilling cylinders, two men do the work formerly done by five. Another labor-saving device of his invention is an automatic machine for drilling holes in small pieces. Besides these he had devised many improvements that are referred to by him as “little things.” In 1900 he spent three months in Europe, having the oversight of the firm’s exhibit at the Universal Exposition at Paris. He is a director of the Union Trust Company of Springfield. In political sentiment ho is a Republican, with a tendency to liberal views. He is a member of the Nayasset and the Springfield Automobile clubs. He is fond of travel in his own country and has a familiar knowledge of most parts of the United States.
 He married, June 7, 1882, Florence May Stebbins, born November 27, 1860, daughter of Professor Milan C. and Sophia (Pitts) Stebbins, of Springfield. Children : 1. Eleanor Sanford, born April 21, 1883 ; married, November 4, 1908, Flynt Lincoln, teller of the Springfield Safe Deposit and Trust Company. 2. Douglas B., born October 23, 1884, see forward. 3. Victor Hawes, born October 6, 1890; now a student in the technical department of the high school, Springfield

Nous avons annoncé ces jours derniers l’arrestation, en flagrant délit de vol, d’un jeune homme de dix-huit ans, Georges Tarquin, dit Prudent, jardinier, né et domicilié à Angoulême. Ce jeune homme, qui a déjà été condamné, le 2 avril 1881, par le tribunal de notre ville, à huit mois de prison pour le même délit, n’a pas profité de cette rude leçon. Ses parents, qui sont d’honnêtes gens, on vainement cherché à le détourner de la voie du mal ; le prévenu s’abandonne à ses mauvais instincts, se livre à l’oisiveté et au vagabondage et se laisse entraîner jusqu’au vol.
 Vu ses mauvais antécédents, le tribunal condamne l’accusé à un an de prison. (Source : La Charente, lundi 27 février 1882, page 3)

HM: Yes. A number of silhouette collections came in. There was a little Mary Martin (not the actress), another one who, out of the blue, bequeathed us her silhouette collection. I don’t know who she was, never met her, have no idea.
PC: Just a letter came one day.
HM: Just a letter came one day from the lawyer saying it’s yours if you want it. It was a very good collection. Then I was able to get Glen Tilley Morse to bequeath his collection which was the next biggest American collection. And I was able to buy a lot of the ones out of a collection formed by Mrs. Hill in Charlottesville. Those were the three greatest American collections. Then there was Alice Van Leer Carrick whose collection went to the Smithsonian. But we got three out of the four great American collections of silhouettes.

Source: George Elder fonds:
 George Elder, the son of Catherine Curran and Alexander Elder, was born at Saint John, New Brunswick on 24 August 1850. The Elders raised no fewer than 3 other children, namely, Robert, Catherine, and Samuel. In 1889 George Elder was farming in Carleton, New Brunswick. On 16 April of that year he married Mary Jane McDougal of Carleton County. They had at least 4 children, namely, Samuel Rutherford (b. 23 July 1892), Mary (b. 26 January 1894), George William (b. 7 April 1895), and Jean McDougal (b. 16 February l897).
 By 1895 George and Mary Elder were living at Passekeag, Kings, and both were active in the local Reformed Presbyterian Church. George was employed as a colporteur or travelling salesman by the Canadian Bible Society, and he travelled widely in south-central New Brunswick selling Bibles and other religious books. In 1903 he was president of the Upham and St. Martins branch of the Bible Society, and about 1905 he was appointed for missionary work in the lumber camps of the Miramichi by the Miramichi Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church.
 About 1906, the Elders were residing at Salmon Creek, near Chipman, New Brunswick. Mary Jane Elder died prematurely on 4 October 1907. Son George William Elder married Margaret E. Vail of Belleisle Creek on 1 July 1919. On 12 November of that year his father George Elder married Jennie Straight (b. 14 February 1871) of Gagetown, Queens County. She predeceased him on 3 September 1926.
 Throughout his life, George Elder contributed poems and numerous letters to the editor to several newspapers, including the Presbyterian Witness, the Witness and Canadian Homestead, and the Telegraph-Journal. Many of his letters to the editor dealt with religious subjects. George Elder died at Belleisle Creek, New Brunswick on 11 January 1931, aged 80.

The Des Moines Register 07/17/1999:
President Clinton came to Iowa on Friday to make a passionate plea for his school reconstruction program and to raise a little political money for an ally, Sen. Tom Harkin. The president had little to say publicly about the farm crisis buffeting the state, although he met privately with a group of farmers to talk about it.
Farm Problems
During his speech at the school, Clinton made only a passing reference to Iowa’s farm problems."There are still a lot of places in the country that aren’t participating in the economic recovery," he said. "The big problem on the farm is we’ve had four years in a row of a worldwide record harvest for the first time in our history. And an economic collapse in 1997 in Asia." As a result, "prices collapse," he said.
A heckler shouted "Freedom to Farm" at Clinton, a reference to a bill Congress passed and he signed that ended many subsidy programs.
"Exactly right," Clinton said.
"The people who put in that Freedom to Farm Act acted like there would never be a bad year on the farm," he said. While offering no details, he said, "We’re working on it."
After the school visit, the president met with Harkin, Gov. Tom Vilsack, Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Patty Judge and Iowa farmers to talk about the farm crisis. Clinton heard about specific farmers’ woes. Aides said the president did not offer promises.
According to the White House, Clinton met with John Whittaker, president of the Iowa Farmers Union; Wendy Wintersteen of the Iowa State Agricultural Farm Credit office; Glen Rowe, a former president of the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association; Mary Krier, who farms with her husband near Sigourney; Craig Hill, a member of the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation board; Richard Mahacek, a farmer and cattle producer; and Doug Thompson, a corn and soybean farmer.

Edyta quickly became part of her host family, and participated in cheerleading and art club at school. She made friends and won hearts! After returning to Poland, Edyta came back for a semester to study at Central College in Pella, Iowa, and then completed her studies in Poland. She recently wrote to Area Program Administrator Diane Findlay to bring Diane up to date on her life. Edyta is now married, working as a dental assistant in Poland, and mother to a darling daughter. (Edyta, husband Jakub and daughter Julia pictured left). Edyta sends “best wishes for your future success with kids from all over the world,” and “best regards to all whom I met in Iowa.”

WOODBURY, Rev. Clayton Reid (I6820)
Source: “A Real (beach) Bum
   Say the phrase “beach bum” in Margate and the words “Christopher Cook Gilmore” come back faster than the echo of wave slapping a steel-hulled boat.
 “I take my measure of a man by how much time he spends on the beach,” Gilmore said recently. Gilmore, 58, is the son of the late Eddie Gilmore, who won a Pulitzer in 1947 for his dispatches from Moscow for the Associated Press. Christopher Cook Gilmore is a writer of note himself, having published six novels and hundreds of short stories and articles. If there is an occupation made for beach bums, it’s writer.
 But Gilmore has become many other things to support his beach habit. He is a carpenter, mechanic, substitute teacher and, occasionally, a sailing instructor for topless French women. When he’s not traveling abroad he rises at maybe 6 a.m., writes until 10 a.m. or noon and then is free to pursue that which interests him, and that which interests him usually involves something on the beach. His skills in the waves on his 14-foot Hobie catamaran are near legendary. Sometimes it’s the women walking by that interest him, and his skills with women are… well, never mind. Who knows what’s true and what occupies local storytellers? Suffice it to say that Gilmore appreciates natural beauty. “A day without love,” he said, “is a day without sunshine.”
 He has held only three “real” jobs, as an Associated Press correspondent for a year and, for two years, as a teacher in Absecon and as a member of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves, which was his way of honorably avoiding fighting in Vietnam.
 He was a lifeguard during high school, but he doesn’t count that because it wasn’t year-round. “That’s what ruined me for working during the summer,” he said. “After that I would never do anything that would keep me off the beach on a hot sunny day.
The best he can do now is to substitute teach for Ocean City High School. “I tell them don’t call me more than twice a week and only when it rains,” he said.
 He has learned to live simply. His car is a ’71 Triumph Spitfire. He lives in a wing of his mother’s house in Margate a block from the beach. He has no children and no ex-wives, but he does have a steady girlfriend. He owns a small motorboat, a garvey. He does have a cell phone, which he sometimes uses to order subs while he’s on the beach, which he gets delivered to the bulkhead.
 Come cold weather all he needs is an airline ticket to someplace warm - Bali, or Borneo or Madagascar or maybe Southeast Asia. Sometimes he brings his Hobie. For a time he lived in a tent on a beach on St. Martin, next to the boat, which was also next to a rasta bar, where his job was to give sailing lessons to topless French girls. He has a fondness for the French language, which he attributes to his ability to consort with the natives.
I’ve lived with a lot of French women,” he said. “I’ve lied in French, made love in French…
 This is what being a beach bum can be like if you are really, really good - and dedicated. But this style of beach bumming cannot be pursued from an office in center-city Philly. It requires commitment, retraining and a willingness to give up the suits, the cars, the fancy houses, the kids, the spouses, the retirement, the security, the fancy boats… but, hey, we’re talking topless French women here.
 If there’s anybody who can explain what it is about the beach, it’s Gilmore.
 “It’s a Zen thing,” he said. It’s the confluence of the sea and land - where they meet, the synthesis of land and sea. When I’m there I feel the immense power of the sea. The thing is, all the problems we have happen on the land, and when we look out at the sea they vanish, and we realize the only thing that matters is the right now.”
 Thanks, Gilmore, thanks for giving us that look into a style of beach bumming that most of us will only dream about.

Christopher claims to have spent an entire winter writing short stories in a blue tent on top of a sand dune on the coast of southern Morocco - without getting a grain of sand in his typewriter. Christopher travels extensively, speaks six languages and hasn’t had a day job in years. He is the author of Atlantic City Proof, The Bad Room and Road Kills among others. He divides his time between his homes in Morocco and Atlantic City.

A woman’s journey and lucky escape

 It was 1944 in The Hague, Netherlands. An abandoned doll sat lifeless in a deserted house on the city’s oldest street. Hand-knit clothes clung to her porcelain body; specks of dust grayed her hair. Suddenly, knocks echoed through the narrow street and watery eyes peered through curtains in neighboring homes. Heavy fists hammered on the wooden door. There was no answer. The Nazi soldiers came too late. The Pajgin family was gone.
 Today, Liny Pajgin Yollick sits in her Dallas home with her husband Bernard. Her right hand fiddles with a gold watch on her left wrist as her light blue eyes scan the walls. Her own paintings meet her gaze. She spends much of her time filling empty canvases with the striking colors nestled in her mind.
 Liny was 16 years old when the Germans marched to the Netherlands. Her family, like many, went underground during the initial takeover. She hid in a small air raid shelter with her mother, father and three sisters, terrified to see what was happening outside. “I hated to come out because I knew I was going see them,” she said. “It was better than living under the Germans.”
 Soon those, like Liny, who lived to see the atrocities of the Holocaust, will not be able to share their stories. Survivors and war veterans are now at least 80 years old. SMU Professor of Human Rights Dr. Rick Halperin believes that it is crucial that new generations understand the plight of the Jews and other victims in World War II. The nearly 6,000,000 people who were systematically slaughtered because of their religion cannot be forgotten. Knowledge and action are the two things humans have than can ensure a tragedy such as the Holocaust does not reoccur. “What happened in the Holocaust is not an aberration of human behavior. In every damn decade since World War II there is genocide. It’s up to us to make sure they stop,” Halperin said.
 When Liny emerged from the shelter after five days, the royal family had fled to England and new edicts had been enforced. She walked to city hall with her family and was given a star to wear. A large “J” was printed on her ID card and she was removed from school. By 7 p.m. she was indoors, dreading any knock on the door.
 Her father, Leo, hid the family’s gold coins under floorboards in the attic and returned to work every day. His wife Emma was young, smart and beautiful. She cared for her children and then went to work in the family shoe store. When Leo died of a heart attack on Dec. 7, 1941, Emma was left to provide for the family.
 Emma Pajgin would not stand idly by and watch her three daughters starve. Risking instant death, she sold shoes to Nazi soldiers on the black market, using her charm and beauty to disguise her Jewish identity. She convinced grocers to save food for her family after specified “Jewish shopping hours” had elapsed. Her daughters never went hungry. “She thought of everything,” Liny said.

 After two years of German occupation, Emma made a decision. She rounded up her daughters and gave them instructions. Liny, instead of celebrating her 18th birthday, slid on two dresses and cut a slit inside her shoe. She slipped a few gold coins in while sandwiches were prepared in the kitchen. The four women left The Hague in the morning of July 14, 1941, leaving all of their belongings behind, including her prized possession: a doll wearing clothes she knit herself.
 It was a four-week journey to Southern France. Though Jews were banned from train travel, the Pajgin women boarded. “People never think I’m Jewish,” she said. “I don’t know what you have to look like to be Jewish, but people never thought I was. That helped us.”
 The journey was hard. Afraid of being captured, the four women took separate paths and decided to meet at a small farmhouse near the Belgian border. Completely alone, Liny set off on her journey. Before long she lost her way and was forced to ask a nearby farmer for help. “He told me that everyone knew what I was doing, so I should just turn around and go home,” she explained.
 Though she was terrified, Liny kept walking. She turned from the farmer without a word and wandered the countryside until she found the farmhouse where her mother and sisters awaited her arrival. They spent days in the house under the protection of a friend. Finally, word came that the border was clear, and the women set off again. Once across the border, Liny boarded another train. “I was so nervous, I trembled the whole time,” she said.
 The four women took the stop at Antwerp, deciding to hide at an uncle’s house. The visit was short; Emma knew they needed to keep moving. For two days the women pleaded with Liny’s uncle to join them, but he could not be swayed. He remained in Antwerp with his wife and 12-year-old daughter. All three were taken from their home and killed before the war was over.
 The Pajgin women continued their journey. Bartering the gold coins for their lives, all four arrived safely in Southern France, where they remained for two months. Knowing they could not stay for long, the women took a train to Portugal. It was here the Dutch Console sent a ship to transport 75 refugees to Dutch Guiana, at that time a Dutch province and safe haven for Jews on the north coast of South America.

 The Pajgins found safety in Dutch Guiana. Liny was given an exam to complete high school, and soon after was offered a job at the Dutch Embassy in Washington, D.C. Liny Pajgin arrived in America before World War II was over.
 She was planning on returning to Europe after a few years in the United States, but Bernie Yollick changed her mind. A friend of Liny threw a party to catch the eye of the eligible Bernie, a surgeon in training. Unfortunately for the hostess, Bernie’s eye was caught by Liny. They wed three months later. The couple has been married for over 60 years. They raised two children: a daughter who graduated from Agnes Scott and a son who received his diploma from Princeton University. Mr. and Mrs. Yollick live in a Dallas home of their own design and, according to Bernie, they could not be a happier pair. “She has been through a lot and she’s such an incredible woman. We have so much fun together, and we’re going to for a long time,” he said.

 More than 100,000 Jews were killed in the Netherlands during World War II. Today, more than 70 years after the war, Holocaust survivors and their families are still fighting to regain property that was stolen. Legal battles rage and many find themselves still without the money they had before the Nazi takeover. According to Halperin, this is but one problem the war society must face.
 Brittany Gonzalez, a senior anthropology major and student of Halperin’s, wholeheartedly agrees with the professor’s teachings. She believes that humans have a higher responsibility to aid one another. Education, she says, is the first step. “I just watched ‘Schindler’s List’ for about the 10th time,” Gonzalez said. “They only way people will forget about the Holocaust is if they want to.”
 After World War II many countries vowed that another Holocaust would never take place. Halperin believes that all those who made that promise have failed miserably.
 In the Sudan hundreds of thousands are now being slaughtered. Halperin believes that if World War II should have taught people anything, it is that the largest failure of human beings is to stand idly by while others are murdered because of race or religion. “Children need to know that in order to live in a better world, you have to get involved. It can’t happen on its own – you have a responsibility to do something,” he said.
 Today a porcelain doll named Lieselotje rests on top of an old piano in a Dallas home. It is the only thing that remains of Liny Pajgin’s life in the Netherlands. Liny Yollick’s artwork is on display until March 31 at the Cerulean Gallery at 6609 Hillcrest Avenue, in front of Snider Plaza. For more information please call (214) 739-2583.

51 Years Later, It Needed to Be Said
by Ingrid Yollick Alpern ’69

When my mother was 18, she escaped from Nazi-occupied Europe. When I was 18, I entered Smith College. I recently saw the safe transit permit granted my mother in unoccupied Vichy France because a man at the Dutch Consulate in Lyon had given my Jewish family Dutch identity papers marked “Protestant.” In her picture on that permit, my 18-year-old mother looks up with defiance, though she did not yet know Vichy France was handing Jewish refugees to Hitler. That image of my mother has encouraged me to express my defiance at something that happened to me as a Smith student over 50 years ago.
 The summer before senior year, I began a Smith internship in Washington, D.C. We interns were housed in homes of vacationing alumnae. Granted leave to attend a wedding, I arrived one week after my housemates. No one told me they’d already established chore assignments. So when I saw garbage piled in the bin under the kitchen sink, I dumped it in the can outside. When I saw dirty dishes in the sink, I washed them.
 Soon one of my housemates approached me before work, saying, “We want to talk to you at the kitchen table tonight.” I arrived that evening to find my housemates already seated. The spokeswoman who’d called the meeting sat at the head of the table, flanked by the other women. They looked toward her expectantly. She began. “It’s not because you’re Jewish that we don’t like you.” No one said a word.
 The spokeswoman began enumerating a list of grievances: I’d taken out the garbage days before the scheduled pickup (a schedule unknown to me). I asked why that mattered. “It will smell up the garbage can out in the heat,” someone replied. (I thought to myself: But it was stinking under the sink!) She continued: I should have known they’d each chosen chores; I should have left the dirty dishes for the Dishwasher of the Week; and so on. But most of what they said was muffled behind the one salient statement. It’s not because you’re Jewish that we don’t like you. I moved out the next day.
 Now, with my 50th Reunion behind me, I’m entranced by my mother’s look of steely defiance on the permit the Vichy government gave her because of her Protestant identity paper. And now I know what I’d like to say to the spokeswoman at that table in D.C. “If it’s not because I’m Jewish that you don’t like me, then why mention that I’m Jewish?” And to the women who flanked her I want to say, “You remained silent when she said that. Your silence made me assume you agreed. Your silence enabled her to say it.”

 My entire life I’ve looked for answers to the question What allowed it to happen? Not just the Holocaust, that carefully planned, industrialized genocide of the Jewish people. But also, what allowed a loud-mouthed bully to become a dictator? I’ve learned that silence and inaction facilitated the dictatorship and genocide in Nazi Germany. We cannot be silent in the face of prejudice or hatred against any group—from bullying on the playground, on the internet or in a social gathering to bullying by a would-be dictator.
 I had close friends at Smith and have formed new Smith friendships since graduation. But Smith students also provided my first personal encounter with antisemitism. President McCartney has made me feel safer in the Smith community with her statements that all of us are wanted and appreciated despite our differences.
 After a career as a tax attorney in Washington, D.C., Ingrid Yollick Alpern ’69 is now the public policy committee co-chair for the organization Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD).

Biography – C. L. DAVIDSON
 Some men are born for a commercial life while others are inclined irresistibly to a professional career. Experience has demonstrated that it is highly important for an individual to follow the pursuit in which he is most interested — the one to which his talents and inclination instinctively point — and it was fortunate for C. L. Davidson, of Virden, that he yielded to his early inclination and became a dealer in horses, as he has proved unusually successful in that line. He is a native of Macoupin County, born in the town of Macoupin, November 21, 1859, a son of Isaac and Ann (Beeman) Davidson, both of whom were born in Illinois. In the family of Mr. and Mrs. Davidson were nine children, three of whom died in infancy, the others being: Uewis, a resident of Hillsboro, Illinois; Sylvester, who is now living in Jersey county; C. L., of this review; Ellsworth, who was killed in a feud between cattle and sheep men in New Mexico; Nettie, the wife of Henry Whitler, of Macoupin county; and Arthur, who is living in Canada.
 Mr. Davidson of this sketch was educated in the public schools and even as a boy was especially interested in horses. He began his active business career as a stock dealer and has ever since continued buying, selling and trading horses, lhere are few men in Illinois who can claim better judgment as to the value of horses. He has been highly successful in his chosen vocation and ranks among the intelligent and reliable dealers of the state. He is also interested in farming and has owned land in Macoupin County, and is now the owner of seven hundred and fifty acres in Missouri.
 On March 29, 1898, Mr. Davidson was married to Miss Hattie Evans, a daughter of William and Louisiana (Noble) Evans, the former a native of Pennsylvania and the latter of Mississippi. Mr. Evans was one of the pioneers of Illinois and his father built the third cabin that was erected where the city of Alton now stands. In his family were eight children, namely: Isabelle, who married Clifford Rowland, of Montgomery county; Henry, deceased; Martha, the wife of James Kidd, of Virden; Mary, who is now living in St. Louis and is the widow of Joseph Baird; Albert, of Montgomery county; William, deceased; Benjamin, who makes his home at Virden; and Hattie, now Mrs. C. L. Davidson. Mr. and Mrs. Davidson are the parents of six children: Mildred, who was born January 20, 1899, and died August 30, 1903; Chester E., born December 13, 1900; Isabelle N., born December 22, 1902; George M., who was born April 29, 1905, and died April 5, 1906; Cynthia L., born February 5, 1907; and Clifford L., born January 30, 1910.
 Mr. Davidson is a second cousin of Hon. William J. Bryan but notwithstanding his relationship to the noted democratic leader he is an earnest supporter of the principles and candidates of the republican party. Fraternally he is connected with the Modern Woodmen of America and the Royal Neighbors. He is a man of large and varied experience and, beginning upon his own account, has developed a business that has brought him a comfortable competence. His affairs have at all times been conducted according to the strictest business ethics. Helpfulness toward others is one of his marked characteristics and many have been benefited by his generous spirit and kindly disposition. Such a man never lacks friends and it is highly to his credit that he posseses the confidence and regard of all with whom he has had business or social relations.

Boxer Held in Death of Nahant Cop.
 A beating he allegedly inflicted nearly two weeks ago on Patrolman Peter J. Tierney of Nahant caused the arrest yesterday on a charge of manslaughter of Joseph L. Junkins, former heavy-weight boxer in the navy, when the officier died at Massachusetts General Hospital.
 Junkins was released on bonds of $2500 and will be arraigned today in Lynn court. Meantime Medical Examiner George B. Magrath has been asked by Dist.-Atty. Hugh A. Cregg of Essex County to perform an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death. This will also take place today.
 Junkins was being placed under arrest by Tierney and Patrolman George Coles in Nahant on Aug. 23, when a woman intervened in his behalf. The woman fell down and Junkins claims that it was due to a push by one of the officers. However it happened, he admitted he saw red and beat both officers.
 Coles received two broken ribs and Tierney went to Lynn Hospital for three days, recovering sufficiently to appear against Junkins, who was fined $60 for assault on both men. On Friday, Tierney suffered a relapse and in spite of an emergency operation he died yesterday. (Source: The Boston Daily Record, Sept. 6, 1934).

Manslaughter Charge Dismissed in Lynn

 Junkins was arrested on a charge of drunkenness and unsigne profane language during a fight in front of a hotel in Nahant, after Tierney and Patrolmen George Coles had been severely beaten. Tierney appeared int the Nahant police court when Junkins pleaded guilty to assault upon the two men and was fined $60.
 Two days later, Tierney, 54 years old, was taken to a hospital in Boston for an emergency operation, and died within a few hours. (Source: The Boston Herald, Sept. 21, 1934).

Given 18 Months in Jail for Manslaugher
 SALEM, Feb 11 — Judge Harold P. Williams in the Superior Court today sentenced Joseph L. Junkins of Nahant to 18 months in the House of Correction for manslaughter in connection with the death of Patrolman Peter Tierney of Nahant. Junkins pleaded guilty.
 According to the evidence Tierney on the night of Aug. 23 stopped a fight in the yard of the Relay House at Nahant and was struck by Junkins.

JUNKINS, Joseph Leo (I5453)
Carleton and Solange Skinner, 4/6/2011
 For 34 years, the main allegiance Solange P. Skinner had to Tilton School was through her husband, Carlton Skinner ’30.
 Carlton Skinner, whose career included being the first civilian Governor of Guam and commanding the first integrated ship in the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard, was awarded the George L. Plimpton Award in 1989 for his passion for equality and freedom. He passed away in 2004 at the age of 90.
 But in the six years since her husband death, Solange P. Skinner not only has continued Carlton Skinner’s legacy, she also has become a major supporter and advocate in her own right.
 Solange P. Skinner was among the top major donors to the just-completed Campaign for Tilton and has included the school in her estate planning, earning her a membership in the Tilton Society. In April 2009, she hosted a planned giving program at Boston’s Harvard Club led by Attorney John Brown.
 She and her husband created The Governor Carlton Skinner and Solange Skinner Fellowship, to “provide financial assistance to a student or students who exhibit a consistent sense of personal integrity, loyalty, and curiosity and who have demonstrated a commitment to fight injustice in all its forms.”
 Solange Skinner also has been a frequent guest at Tilton, enthusiastically offering “high level advice” to the schools’ administration, including how to improve student and teacher recruitment and Tilton’s development efforts.
 To honor Carlton and Solange Skinner’s commitment to Tilton, the two-story glass tower in the new academic building was named Skinner Tower.
 “It has been a pleasure and privilege to come to know Solange Skinner over the past 13 years,” Tilton Head of School James Clements said. “She is a thoughtful and lively observer of the world in which we live. She has shared her insights about adolescent development on numerous occasions.
 “In addition, Solange Skinner has exhibited extraordinary personal generosity to Tilton that has had, and continues to make, a difference in the lives of all students attending Tilton School.”
 Even without their engagement with Tilton, both Solange and Carlton Skinner made enduring impressions on the national and world communities.
 After graduating from Tilton in 1930, Carlton Skinner attended Wesleyan University and the University of California. He briefly was a correspondent for United Press International and The Wall Street Journal. He was a Coast Guard lieutenant and commanded the weather ship U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Sea Cloud, which became the Navy’s first fully integrated ship.
 Skinner also commanded the U.S.S. Hoquiam, another fully integrated ship. Skinner then became a public relations office for the Department of Interior before being appointed the last Navy governor and later the first civilian Governor of Guam in 1949. He was appointed a U.S. senior commissioner for the Pacific Commission of the South Pacific Island countries.
 He later became chief financial officer for American President Lines, Colt Industries and Fairbanks-Morse before forming the Skinner & Co. financial consulting company. A plaza in Agana, Guam is named in his honor.
 Solange Skinner has two doctorate degrees in anthropology and psychology from the University of Paris - Sorbonne, three master’s degrees in philosophy, psychology and art history, a diploma in oceanic languages and has received training in psycho-analysis and group dynamics.
 She taught political science in Paris for five years and anthropology at the University of Guam. She has written 11 books and numerous political and anthropological articles.
 Solange Skinner said her continued generosity to Tilton simply is an extension of her love for academics and academic institutions.
 “For me education is important,” she said.
 She realized very early in her marriage that Tilton School was very important to her husband. The two, she said, often received numerous invitations to events at Wesleyan University and never went. Instead, they would go to Tilton.
 “I would ask Carlton ‘Why are you always going to Tilton? Why can’t we go to Wesleyan?’ And he would say, ‘Because I love my prep school.’ It was so cute.”
 Carlton Skinner came from a long line of academics and he had a passionate interest in social and political change.
 “I said, “Carlton, why did you not go into academics?” And he replied, “Because I wanted to change the world.” And he did.

C’était il y a 25 ans... le carambolage de Mirambeau
Le 10 novembre 1993, 15 personnes périssaient sur l’autoroute A10 en Charente-Maritime dans l’un des carambolages les plus meurtriers de France. Retour sur ce drame avec un rescapé.

Publié le 10/11/2018 à 08h00 • Mis à jour le 12/06/2020 à 13h16

 En fin de journée sur l’A10, dans le sens Paris-Bordeaux, à hauteur de Saint-Martial-de-Mirambeau, il fait nuit et il pleut. Nous sommes le 10 novembre 1993. Un camion s’arrête sur le bas côté, un autre freine et se retrouve en travers, sur les voies. C’est le début d’un énorme carambolage qui comptera près de 50 voitures et 6 poids lourds. Bilan : 15 morts et 46 blessés. Ce soir-là, Yann Méheux Driano a perdu sa femme et ses deux enfants âgés de 14 et 10 ans : « Il y a des scènes que je ne pourrais jamais oublier. Par exemple, mon fils qui me tend les bras. »
 En 2002, vient le temps des procès. Quinze personnes sont condamnées à des peines symboliques : amendes et suspensions de permis. Une page judiciaire se tourne, une autre vie commence pour Yann : « J’ai rebâti. Aujourd’hui, je continue j’ai une femme et des enfants. La vie a repris ses droits même si ça ne change rien à ce qui s’est passé.»
 Yann Méheux Driano a choisi de s’investir dans la prévention routière. Il raconte son histoire lors de stages. Mais son combat va au-delà du témoignage. Il espère encore des changements concrets dans les infrastructures routières : "Ce qu’on met en place aujourd’hui sur les routes n’est pas suffisant. Cela fait partie de mes échecs. »
 Les familles des victimes du carambolage de Mirambeau ne se voient plus beaucoup. Vingt-cinq ans après le drame, les souvenirs restent gravés dans les mémoires et sur une petite plaque, le long de l’autoroute A10.

Douglas Mott, Senior Pastor
Rev. Doug Mott was ordained in 1979. He was a pastor in Prince Edward Island before moving to Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1982. In 1989 he became Senior Pastor of First Congregational Church of Halifax, and remains in that position today. In 1998 God did a major work in Doug’s life. The music of Keith Green literally brought Doug to his knees as he realized that, in his Christian walk, he was compromising with the world. Remembering that his call to ministry came when a pastor asked for missionaries to be sent to India, Doug went on a short term mission to Pakistan and India in 1999. The following year he met with believers in Metro who had a heart for international missions. The result was the “Jesus to the Nations" missions conference, a movement that recognizes God’s vision that this area is to be a place that sends people to the four corners of the earth with the good news of Jesus Christ. Doug chaired this conference for 12 years. Among Doug’s favourite authors are J.I.Packer, John Piper, and Eugene Peterson. He is also a big fan of A.W.Tozer. Doug’s vision is to impact Halifax with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through a Body of committed believers, reaching out to university students and the unchurched. Doug and his wife, Ann and their daughters Katie and Sarah live in Halifax. (source: Halifax, First Congregational Church, 25 Sep 2012).

Rev. Douglas Mott
Born in Gagetown, New Brunswick, Doug Mott has been the Senior Pastor of First Congregational Church for about 12 years now. After receiving his BA in Political Science at the University of New Brunswick, he travelled to Kingston, Ontario, where he attended Queens University, earing his MA in Political Studies.Doug Mott went to the University of Toronto to work for his M.Div and, after being ordained into the United Church in 1979, spent 10 years in various churches on Prince Edward Island and in Halifax until being called as Senior Pastor of First Congregational Church.
Rev. Doug Mott has a special desire for missions, especially in the area of reaching People in Islamic and Hindi regions of the world.In June of 1999 he fulfilled a long time desire and spent a month in Paskistan and India with Interserve.Currently, he is in the planning team for “Jesus to the Nations” - a set of talks and workshops directed towards spreading the gospel around the world.This conference was born in February 2000 and is a growing annual event held in Halifax.Best of all - he loves Jesus and is committed to following Him.

Dr. David S. Palmer, DMD, FACP
 Born in Skowhegan, Maine, Dr. Palmer has come back home after a very enjoyable and satisfying military career. The Doc is a constant student, learning not only the newest advances in his specialty and dentistry in general, but also learning in other areas. He is a student of language, currently actively studying Arabic, and a student of music, studying guitar.
 He is a technology nut and does much of the computer work in his office. Ask him anything about computer hardware. Check out his curriculum vitae for the professional credentials, but ask Linda about anything else! His dog is Jack, and he is Papa to the World’s Most Beautiful Grandchildren. He always has coffee available for friends! Sometimes, if you promise to floss, there are donuts, too!
 Come in and meet us all. My staff are the real treasures in the office, each one a gem!

Greetings to all, from Maine! Not that I want to appear old, but my first amateur radio license was dated 1959, and was KN1SIW. Over the years since, my call has been K1SIW, KA1GGD, KA1GGD/PA in the Netherlands, KB1ZV, and again, after a long absence from radio, K1SIW. For most of my adult life I was in the U.S. Air Force, first enlisted, but I was fortunate enough to retire as a colonel. Linda, my wife of 35 years, and I have travelled much of the world. We can carry on a conversation in Greek and Dutch, from having lived in both countries. Back now where I grew up, I am practicing in the Portland, Maine area. Linda runs our office (she’s an RN, with extensive business experience). Both our kids are married, and we are grandparents to the World’s Three Most Beautiful Grandchildren. Oh, and I’m a guitar player and collector (Schecters rule) and a reformed Corvette addict. (source: eBay)

We are retiring!
Greetings, and thank you for having trusted me to provide your oral health care. Many of you have been told, at your last visit to my office, that Linda and I are retiring. It’s true -- and it’s time. As of 1 June 2013, or June 1st, 2013 for you civilians, I will cease the practice of dentistry here in Maine. We are moving to be closer to our grandchildren, while we are still young enough to thoroughly enjoy playing with them. But, Linda and I have not forgotten about you!
 Hopefully, you will be delighted at what I have prepared for you. I have transferred your dental record, including all xray images, to a dental school friend I’ve known over 30 years. Many of you have seen the gold crown he did for me when we both were dental students. That crown has lasted over three times the national average, and still is strong. This doctor is the one who has been covering for me when I went away to visit family or whatever, for the last ten years. Although I went to dental school after several years in the Air Force, this doctor went directly after undergraduate college, so he is considerably younger than I am.

Edward D. Jacks, 86
Highland Park accountant loved flying
March 25, 2002 | By Sean D. Hamill, Chicago Tribune staff reporter.
 With World War II approaching in 1940, Highland Park accountant Edward D. Jacks applied for a Navy commission in hopes of becoming a fighter pilot. But his commission was turned down, so he continued working as a civilian, crafting budgets for military projects. The fact that he didn’t join the Navy “was frustrating to him,” but after the war, still driven by a love of flying, Mr. Jacks earned his pilot’s license, his son Jerry said. Mr. Jacks, 86, died Tuesday, March 12, at Westmoreland Nursing Home in Lake Forest after complications from Parkinson’s disease, one month after Helen, his wife of 61 years, died. Mr. Jacks, who owned several small airplanes, melded his hobby with his accounting career, flying to see clients nationwide. Mr. Jacks was born and raised in Highland Park, where his father was a pediatrician. He grew up with a fascination for flying and for motorcycles, a passion he would also pursue for the rest of his life. Four years ago, his son put a sidecar on Mr. Jacks’ motorcycle so he could still ride after his illness began to sap his strength.
 Mr. Jacks received his accounting degree from DePauw University in Greencastle, Ind., and in the late 1930s joined a firm that worked for the federal government. In 1942 his family moved to Lake Forest, where in 1951 he opened his own accounting firm. “Part of the reason he did a lot of flying was so he could be home with his family,” said his son, a pilot and a partner in his father’s firm. Focusing on closely held or family-owned companies, Mr. Jacks’ firm developed a national reputation. “Eddy Jacks was the guy we leaned on to handle our accounting,” said Harvey Gossell, a former printing company executive. “Early on, the day before the taxes were due, I’d be over at his house, with all of our documents spread all over his king-size bed. We’d sweat it out, but we’d always make it.”
 Mr. Jacks was a Lake Forest alderman for one term in the 1950s, president of the local PTA and a part-time Lake County deputy sheriff. He retired from his firm five years ago, his son said. Other survivors include two sons, Edward and Robert; a daughter, Nancy Cummings; a brother, John; a sister, Lelia Harris; six grandchildren and a great-granddaughter. Services have been held.

Elles étaient, avant l’heure, des cartes d’identité permettant aux habitants de Paris (hommes de plus de 15 ans) de circuler librement. Chaque citoyen devait se présenter accompagné de deux témoins à son Comité de surveillance (ou d’arrondissement après 1794). Celui-ci, après enquête, établissait le document en y mentionnant l’âge, la profession, l’adresse et le lieu dont était originaire le citoyen.

Estes, David Corbin, dentist, Lake City, is among the best known and most cultured citizens of Wabasha county. Morally and politically the doctor has done much for Lake City. In the great fire of 1882 was totally destroyed the largest private natural history collection of the Northwest, the property of Dr. Estes, which had always been kept open to the public in a large room devoted to the purpose. At the same time he lost a complete scientific library. All the natural sciences received a great deal of attention from his searching mind, but since his great loss most of his study has been given to astronomy. Upon this subject he gives occasional lectures, and has more calls for this line of enlightening work than he can meet. From boyhood he has been a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, and gathered together the first Methodist society here and established the first Methodist Sunday school. He was four years justice of the peace and seven years a member of the board of education.
 His father, Dexter Estes, was an enthusiastic Henry Clay whig, and his sons followed in his political footsteps, our subject being an ardent republican. He is a member of the I.O.O.F., and now holds the highest position in the gift of the order in the state. Dexter Estes was born in Vermont and was one of the origianl Green Mountain boys of the revolution. He married Sally Thayer, of that state, and settled in Keene, Essex, New York, where David Estes was born March 5, 1825. The youth of the latter was spent on a farm, assisting his father in its tillage and in pottery work. He was a great reader, and made the most of his limited opportunities for education. Later, at Albany, he attended the academy, state normal school and medical college. It was his intention to take a full medical course, but failing eyesight compelled him to abridge his studies, and he turned his attention to dentistry. At Albany he began its practice, and there continued until his removal to Lake City. He arrived here July 10, 1857, and has steadily pursued his practice. By his manly integrity and uniform kindness he has become possessed of universal respect and regard, and yet our people will not fully appreciate his noble qualities till he is gone.
 May 2, 1849, he married Mary Ellen Dollar, born in Albany, as was her mother, Fanny Terwilliger, and her father, Robert Dollar, the latter of Irish parents. To Mr. and Mrs. Estes were born seven children, the following six of whom survive: Orphena O. (Mrs.Virgil Borst), Independence, Wisconsin; Ornilla J., teacher in Lake City schools; Tully C., Frank E., Robert D. and Charles H., at home. The third child, Fanny E., married Charles King, and died at Cincinnati. One of her two children dwells with Dr. Estes. (Source: History of Wabasha County (Minnesota), page 1038. Compiled by Dr. L.

Biography: Milsington came in for Boston after a contest in 1796, standing on the interest of his father-in-law the Duke of Ancaster. On 14 Dec. 1796 he was granted two weeks’ leave of absence for his private affairs. He voted for Pitt’s assessed taxes, 4 Jan. 1798, and is not known to have spoken or opposed government. His distractions after his wife’s death proved expensive: early in 1802 he had to pay £2,000 damages for crim. con. ‘with Mrs Jackson, daughter of Colonel Bishop’. He did not seek re-election that year.

He died on the Continent 18 Jan. 1835, whereupon the title became extinct. His only son, who in 1809 became heir to the Ancaster estate once he reached the age of 25, was murdered by banditti in Italy in 1819.

Lord Milsington was an English amateur cricketer who made six known appearances in first-class cricket matches from 1792 to 1799. He was mainly associated with Hampshire and was an early member of Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC). He held the office of Member of Parliament (M.P.) for Boston, Lincolnshire between 1796 and 1802.

The capital of the Third Reich is a heap of gaunt, burned-out, flame-seared buildings. It is a desert of a hundred thousand dunes made up of brick and powdered masonry. Over this hangs the pungent stench of death… it is impossible to exaggerate in describing the destruction… down town Berlin look as like nothing man could have contrived. Driving down the famous Frankfurt Alee, I did not see a single building where you could have set up as business of even selling apples.Eddie Gilmore, Associated Press, Berlin, June, 9th, 1945.

Girl Nearly Hit By Train In Tiburon
 What might have been a tragic accident at an unauthorized crossing on the Northwestern Pacific Railroad tracks near Tiburon Reed School resulted in minor bruises Friday when a 10-year-old student at the school tripped as she crossed the tracks, apparently unaware that a freight train was bearing down on her. Andrea Skinner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Carleton Skinner of Edgewater road in the lagoon area of Belvedere, was pushing her bicycle across the forbidden crossing toward the school when she tripped and fell. She had enough presence of mind to roll away from the rails as the train bore down on her, completely demolishing her bike, reported Belvedere Police Chief Etogene Meyer. As soon as the train could be stopped, the crew rushed back to the spot but the youngster had vanished. “In this case, we were lucky,” Meyer reported. “We know that many youngsters have been walking across this unauthorized spot rather than take a longer, safer way to school.” Meyer joined with Reed School Principal Lloyd R. O”Connor in appealing for the help of parents in forbidding children to cross the railroad tracks avospt at authorized crossings. (Source: Daily Independant Journal from San Rafael, California.

SKINNER, Andrea Weymouth (I9)
Gorge Lewis Robertson, son of Elizabeth and Harvey Robertson was born in the state of Virginia in the year 1817, March the eighth one hundred and nineteen years ago. He was the son of a family of eight children: Judith, Millie, Lucinda, Anthony, Harvey, Tom, Cornelious and himself the youngest.
 When he was about one year old he and his parents and his brothers and sisters moved to Tennessee. He remained in the home of his father til he was a young man, when he wanted to see some other part of the country so he took his worldly posessions consisting of what clothes he had, a horse and saddle and started out on horseback.
 He stopped in Missouri near Springfield, where he met a family by lthe name of Johnson. He married the eldest daughter Emily, of Mr. & Mrs. Williamson Johnson, he being twenty nine years old and his young wife sixteen. To this union were born eleven children two sons and nine daughters, Viz Elizabeth, Harve, Benjamine, Lucinda, Jane, Armilda, Ida, and Elva beside three having died when small.
 While his oldest children were quite small his father died who was still living in Tennessee; he, George, went back to Tenn. and brought his aged mother to live with him in Mo.. The last years of her life she was an invalid, he secured a negro mammy, as they were called in those days, to care for her. She lived to the unusual age of Ninety Six years.
 During the war of 1861 between the North and South things became most unpleasant for George, as most of his wifes people favored the South and he had Northern views and seventeen of his wifes relatives were fighting for the south he saw plainly he would have to join the Confederate army or leave Mo.. They had and opportunity to leave and go out under protection of a regiment of union Soldiers; so along with several other families they left in wagons for Illinois.
 In crossing the Mississippi river he stepped out on the wagon tongue to unreign his horses to drink and he slipped off the tongue and the wagon ran over him breaking several ribs. He was disabled for a few days but he wouldn’t give up so on they went till they arrived near Springfield and near here they remained for about two years.
 About that time he heard of cheap land in Iowa, so hither they came landing in Dallas C. in Oct. 1864 settling on the land where his son Ben now lives, the old house stood west of Ben’s about a half mile. But misfortune came to him in the loss of his wife Emily in year 1868? leaving him with a large family; one daughter Elizabeth was married at this time. He struggled along as best he could, the oldest daughter Lucinda being fourteen years old at the time of her mothers death.
 A few years later he became acquainted, through a friend, John Halderman, with a widow lady Elizabeth Leak and her daughters living in Polk County. To make a long story short he married one of the daughters Sarah Jane, March 21, 1871. To this union two daughters were born Louisa Bell and Susie Dell, the latter dying at the age of three months.
 At the time of this writing June 1936, there are five daughters living, also one son: Mrs. Mary Lucinda Wilson of Granger, Ia. Mrs. Martha Armilda Stoner of Granger, Ia., Mrs. Ida C. Rowe of Dallas Center, Mrs. Elva A. Brown of Los Angeles, Califl, Mrs. Louisa B. Aldrich of Waukee, Ia and Benjamin F. Robertson of Grimes, Ia.
 George L. Robertson died Sept. 1, 1908 at age 91 years five months and 23 days. He was a member of the Methodist church for 60 years, active in religious work, a strong believer in the necessity and worth of living the Christian life. His wife Sarah followed him in death three years later on Sept. 3rd, 1911. His daughter Jane Stoner died in 1893. His daughter Elizabeth Smith in 1907. His son Harvey in 1908. At this time June 1936 as near as can be estimated there are about 250 in this Robertson family.

Harriott Balmer honored for scholarship work in Bethel
Source: The Mountain News (Posted on May 14, 2011 by brucesmith49)
 Kapowsin resident, Harriott Balmer, was honored this week by the Northwest Regional Chapter of Dollars for Scholars for her three decades of effort raising scholarship monies for college-bound students from the Bethel School District.
 Harriott Balmer displays her award as the Dollars for Scholars "Regional Volunteer of the Year." Specifically, Ms. Balmer was given the “Regional Volunteer of the Year Award” in ceremonies Thursday in West Seattle. Also lauded was Bethel High School senior Patrizia Galino, who received the Dollars for Scholars Regional Award for Student Volunteer of the Year. An honor-roll student, Ms. Galino is a Philippine-native who came to Bethel in 2007 and intends to become a physician.
 Ms. Balmer’s distinction goes far beyond the work of just one year, and reflects a dedicated effort to raise scholarship money for BSD grads since 1985.
 At that time, Balmer, a 1963 graduate of Bethel High School, decided to commemorate her mother, Betty Fix, with a scholarship fund designed to assist young women graduating from Bethel High School who wanted to attend a four-year college.
 “That was when Bethel High School was known as ‘Cow Pie High,’” she told the Mountain News, accompanied by her signatory full-throated laugh.
 Her mother, “Mrs. Fix,” had taught home economics at Bethel High since 1957 and was a beloved teacher to many. As a result, the fundraising effort that started as a one-day garage sale at the Graham Safeway, grew quickly.
 “By 1987, it had grown so big we decided to form BEST, the Bethel Educational Scholarship Team,” said Harriott.

Heroic Death of Captain Revealed by Sub Survivors
 (Boston Globe–N.Y. Herald Tribune.) NEW YORK, April 24 — An heroic episode of the increasing battle which American merchant sailors are waging against submarines off the Atlantic Coast was related today by survivors of an American ship whose skipper, at the cost of his life, steered straight into a barrage of cannon-fire in a vain attempt to ram and sink an attacking U-boat. The skipper, Capt. Samuel L. Cobb of Staten Island, was mortally wounded by a fragment of shell which exploded near the bridge of the vessel. One other seaman, Victor J. Pratola, 19, of 17 Murray st., Wakefield, Mass., was killed in the attack, which took place on the night of April 16, and five were missing. Twenty-seven survivors.

Hommage à Geneviève Le Cacheux
 Mais où sont les enfants ? s’interroge-t-on parfois dans le monde de la littérature enfantine. Voici une question que l’entourage de Geneviève Le Cacheux ne s’est jamais posée. Les enfants étaient bel et bien au centre de sa vie. « À l’enfant est dû tout respect » écrivait Paul Hazard dans son bel ouvrage. Cette maxime, elle l’a mise en oeuvre dans sa famille, à la bibliothèque, partout où il lui a été donné de travailler. À preuve, son désir de les écouter, de les aider à vivre pleinement leur enfance, avec notamment des lectures de la meilleure qualité.
 Geneviève Le Cacheux, une grande figure des bibliothèques publiques vient de nous quitter. Elle a participé activement à la belle aventure de La Joie par les livres.
 Alors qu’en 1964, dans notre bureau de Montparnasse, nous préparons la bibliothèque des enfants de Clamart, elle nous rend visite. Nous l’accueillons avec enthousiasme. Nous partageons la même philosophie. Nous avons emprunté pour nous former, les mêmes chemins en France et aux États-Unis. La fondatrice mécène apprécie son esprit ouvert à l’innovation, son désir d’ouvrir la profession sur le monde et sa connaissance des réalités françaises. Celle-ci s’appuie sur sa propre expérience à Caen où elle est depuis 1958, responsable du coin jeunesse de la bibliothèque municipale, d’abord dans un baraquement de fortune, puis dans « le couloir des classes » du Lycée Malherbe.
 Elle rejoint très vite notre groupe de lecture qui se réunit chaque mois. Elle participe ainsi au Bulletin d’analyses de livres pour enfants, appelé plus tard La Revue des Livres pour Enfants. Elle ne tarde pas à venir s’installer à Paris, dans un appartement minuscule où elle assure seule la rédaction de la revue. Confiante en leurs jugements, elle engage les bibliothécaires de tous les coins de France à participer aux tâches d’analyses, à la rédaction de fiches critiques. Conditions requises : être proche des enfants, attentif à leurs lectures, soucieux de qualité. C’est ce qui fait alors l’originalité de cette publication. Dans son petit appartement sont rassemblés les ouvrages envoyés par les éditeurs. Ainsi, naît modestement ce qui deviendra l’actuel Centre national de la littérature pour la jeunesse aujourd’hui intégré à la BnF. Elle en a consolidé les fondations avant de revenir à Caen pour y créer la magnifique bibliothèque municipale qui ouvrira en 1971.
 Femme de forte conviction et de grande humanité, elle a un sens aigu de la vocation des bibliothèques : elle est la première dans la profession à donner une place de choix aux publics oubliés. Première à ouvrir au sein d’une bibliothèque publique en tous points remarquable, un très large espace pour les enfants, animé par une équipe fortement motivée. Première à créer une bibliothèque sonore à l’intention des malvoyants ainsi qu’un important service audiovisuel. Première à nouer des liens avec un centre de détention. Les techniques les plus sophistiquées sont mises au service de tous. Tout ceci est pensé, préparé dès les années 60. Femme remarquable, discrète, courageuse, Geneviève Le Cacheux ouvre des voies aujourd’hui empruntées par les bibliothèques les plus dynamiques.
 En avance sur son temps, elle a, professionnellement, rencontré bien des difficultés. Elle n’en est que plus admirable. Le monde du livre pour enfants perd une alliée de toujours. Personnellement, je pleure une amie.

Il y a un an, 15 morts dans un brasier sur l’autoroute A10
L’Humanité — Vendredi 11 Novembre 1994

Le 10 novembre 1993, un violent carambolage dans lequel étaient impliqués plusieurs camions bouleversait et interrogeait la France. Le débat sur les moyens de transport était ouvert. Un an après, le gouvernement continue à privilégier la route.

 Une cérémonie commémorative a été organisée, jeudi, à Mirambeau (Charente-Maritime), un an après le carambolage de l’A10, entre Paris et Bordeaux, qui a fait, le 10 novembre 1993, 15 morts et 55 blessés. Une messe, qui a réuni quelque 200 personnes, parmi lesquelles des rescapés, les familles de victimes, ainsi que sauveteurs et gendarmes, a été célébrée à 11 heures en l’église de Saint-Martial-de-Mirambeau, village où avaient été rassemblés les corps après l’accident.
 Les rescapés et familles de victimes se sont ensuite rendus sur les lieux du drame. Une plaque commémorative portant l’inscription «Aux victimes de l’accident du 10 novembre 1993» a été déposée, ainsi que plusieurs gerbes de fleurs, dont une du ministre des Transports et une autre du préfet de la Charente-Maritime. Après la cérémonie, Me Jacques Vincens, l’avocat de l’Association de défense et de soutien aux victimes et familles de victimes de l’accident de l’A10 (ADVIFA), a annoncé qu’une cellule constituée de 6 à 7 psychologues allait être mise en place au sein de l’ADVIFA afin de venir en aide aux «personnes qui souffrent encore dans leur chair et dans leur tête». Il a également déclaré qu’il allait proposer l’intégration d’une telle cellule dans le plan ORSEC, déclenché en cas de catastrophe ou d’urgence collective.
 «Un halo rougeâtre, comme une cloche de lumière. Un enchevêtrement de voitures carbonisées. Et puis l’odeur... insoutenable.» Un an après, rescapés et secouristes sont toujours sous le choc et ont en mémoire cette vision de cauchemar. Ce jour-là, à 19 h 30, la circulation est dense. Il pleut. A la hauteur de Mirambeau, la fumée qui s’échappe d’un camion stationné sur la bande d’arrêt d’urgence provoque un accident en chaîne, mêlant 46 véhicules légers et 6 ensembles routiers. Le feu gagne la plupart des voitures. Un gigantesque brasier s’étend sur 150 mètres d’autoroute. Les sauveteurs auront les pires difficultés à extraire les victimes des tôles froissées et calcinées. Au point que le bilan de la tragédie ne pourra définitivement être établi que le surlendemain. L’identification des victimes prendra plusieurs jours. Le 13 novembre, deux conducteurs de camion sont mis en examen pour homicides involontaires: Raymond Ramirez, dont la remorque s’est mise en travers de la chaussée lorsqu’il a dû freiner, et Mariusz Pawlowsky, un chauffeur polonais qui conduisait le dernier poids lourd, celui qui a percuté par l’arrière une file de voitures déjà immobilisées ou accidentées.
 Un an après, le dossier est au point mort. L’instruction, qui a été confiée à Dominique Guiraud, juge d’instruction à Saintes, est suspendue à la remise du rapport des experts dont les conclusions étaient attendues au printemps, puis repoussées pour être transmises, peut-être, au début de 1995. Ces experts doivent décrire ce qui s’est passé, l’ordre des chocs, leur force et surtout la cause de l’incendie qui constitue la particularité de cet accident. Leur travail consiste notamment à désosser chacun des véhicules pour établir la résistance mécanique et l’énergie cinétique afin de déduire la vitesse. Quelques heures après l’accident, le ministre des Transports avait, en effet, hâtivement bouclé l’enquête.
 Selon lui, la cause du carambolage était la vitesse. Un peu comme si les automobilistes avaient volontairement choisi de mourir à Mirambeau. «Il y a un problème national qui est en chacun de nous. Nous nous transformons en prenant le volant. Cela peut conduire à une catastrophe de ce genre», avait-il dit. Mais l’émotion dans le pays avait permis d’ouvrir en grand le dossier des transports et de leur sécurité dans notre pays. La question, ni technique ni utopique, appelait, en effet, une réponse politique: celle d’un choix de civilisation. Un an après, le ministre a apporté la sienne. Celle qui consiste à continuer à privilégier la route au détriment des autres moyens de transports, en décidant de lancer un programme autoroutier sur 3.000 nouveaux kilomètres, et en engageant la SNCF à supprimer des liaisons, des gares, ou des ateliers de maintenance, comme à Vitry, dans le Val-de-Marne.
 Et, un an après, le ministre en est encore au stade des effets d’annonce. Il prépare, a-t-il précisé, des mesures destinées, selon lui, à éviter de tels accidents. Un projet de loi viserait à transformer de contraventions en délits les excès dépassant de plus de 50 km/h les vitesses autorisées, et le débridage des limiteurs de vitesse ou des chronotachygraphes installés à bord des camions. Par ailleurs, sur certains itinéraires autoroutiers les plus chargés, la circulation des poids lourds, déjà interdite le week-end, le sera aussi les jours de forte circulation. Mais des dérogations seront toujours possibles. En outre, à partir du 1er mai 1995, les poids lourds devront avoir des réservoirs de carburant renforcés, offrant une meilleure résistance aux chocs.
 Un an après, les rescapés et les familles des victimes ont cependant l’impression d’avoir été oubliés. Yann Méheux, le président de l’ADVIFA a annoncé son intention d’engager une action en référé en vue d’obtenir des indemnisations à titre provisoire pour les victimes. Celles-ci se heurtent toujours aux compagnies d’assurances et certaines se sont même vu pénaliser d’un malus.

James Lorimer Ilsley, PC, KC (January 3, 1894 – January 14, 1967) was a Canadian politician and jurist.
 He was born in Somerset, Nova Scotia, the son of Randel Ilsley and Catherine Caldwell. Ilsley was educated at Acadia University and Dalhousie University and was admitted to the Nova Scotia bar in 1916. In 1919, he married Evelyn Smith. Ilsley practiced law in Yarmouth and Halifax, Nova Scotia until he was elected to the Canadian House of Commons as a Liberal in the 1926 election.

Letter from Prescott Orde Skinner to Mitia Olga Skinner:
[Mitia Olga is Prescott’s niece. First two pages of this letter are lost. Date is unknown]
 “[…] her aunt Alice (my wife) is most attractive. They are all coming up to Hanover to pass the Christmas. Alicias’s family with her husband’s (John Carleton) family, and John Skinner and Helen with us.
 “Now as to the Skinners, I will tell you what I know. The family in the late 17th or early 18th century, sailed from Chichester, England, settling in Colchester, Connecticut. Alice got a lot of the early history of our family from my mother who got it in turn from my father. Alice will write this early period to you. The Skinners that I descend from were all professional men, mostly ministers.
 “My grandfather Joseph Churchill Skinner was a Baptist minister in Nova Scotia and then in New Brunswick. I have his portrait taken in the 1840s or 1850s; an impressive looking man, dignified in his white shirt, and the dress ot his time.
 “At the beginning of the Revolution War, my ancestors Skinners were Tories (my father was not proud of this). They, with a few other of the same attachment to England, got into a large open boat and amidst all the perils of the sea, sailed north along the New England coast to Nova Scotia. I think they settled in what is known as the Evangeline country – but Alice will tell you about this.
 “My grandfather, the Rev. Joseph Churchill was called to New Brunswick and lived and preached for many years in a town on the Washademoak Lake, about fifty miles from the City of St. John up the St. John river.
 “My father was the second of seven children, born in Nova Scotia about two months before the family left for New Brunswick (1825). My father worked hard under difficulties, and finally entered Fredericton Academy (in New Brunswick) thence to Harvard University. He studied in the Harvard Medical School under such men as Professor Stones and Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes. My father used to tell us a great many anecdotes about Dr. Holmes in the classroom. My father was in the 1850s or 1860s interim in Mass. General Hospital.
 “For a number of years, my father practiced in St. John, New Brunswick. He made some money there, then went to Boston in Tremont Street, near the Common where I was born, then to the South End where he bought a house and made his office there. Later he sold the house, and our family moved to Roxbury a sort of suburb of Boston.
 “The story of my father’s marriage, Alice will tell you about. My mother, the best of women, insisted on us four boys having the finest opportunities for education. Macy and I in Harvard University, Vernon in Law School, and your father in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he stood well as a student.
 “Later I studied at the University of Paris – Harvard graduate School, and taught for 38 years at Dartmouth College where I am now a professor emeritus on a pension.
 “I don’t know but I think that the Daughters of the America Revolution insist on the ancestors being a native patriot. My own sympathies are all with the American cause, and in spite of my father’s ancestrial party membership, my father from boyhood always was in sympathy with the American cause.
 “But ask me some more and I will try to answer. Your Aunt Alice and I congratulate you on your engagement most heavily. As you write it, it seems a perfect match. By the way your aunt Alice is very fond of you.
 Love – Uncle Orde.”

From the “Harvard College, Class of 1896 Fiftieth Anniversary Report”:
Prescott Orde Skinner (1908)
PRESCOTT ORDE SKINNER took his A.M. at Harvard in 1897, and continued graduate study at Harvard and in Paris until 1900, whe he was appointed instructor in French at Dartmouth College. He served as professor of Romance Languages at Dartmouth until he became emeritus in 1938.
 “After my childhood which was spent in one of the pleasanter (no longer so) parts of the South End in Boston,” he writes, “I passed eight long profitable years at the Public Latin School in Boston. After an interval of several years, I entered Harvard. My two years in the Graduate School were a great revelation to me under the inspiration of Professors Grandgent an Sheldon. there I formed lifelong friendships with other students, many of whom entered a profession similar to my own.
 “My graduate studies were continued at the École des Hautes Études in Paris under world-famous scholars. I revisited Paris and other parts of Europe off and on – long enough each time to get the foreign atmosphere, cultivate some knowledge and love of the arts, and make some lasting friends, especially in France. Then followed thirty-seven years of teaching at Dartmouth College.
 “Since my promotion (ironic user of the word) to the status of professor emeritus at the age of seventy, I have missed somewhat my old classroms, but have not suffered too much from boredom. I have always loved long walks along the open road, through fields, woods, and over hills – deambulare per amoena loca. Today the length and speed of these walks are considerably curtailed. I have enjoyed frequent sojourns with my married children and find my grandchildren most attractive.
 “Locally, I frequent our splendid Dartmouth Library, have coffee down town with old cronies, and can appreciate the restfulness of my home life in our ancient Webster Cottage. Webster roomed in this house in his freshman year.
 “As I no longer have to keep to my former professional specialties, I indulge in the most miscellaneous reading an rereading, generally but not always of a high order. I might add that I follow Harvard’s athletic activities and am still a confirmed Harvard rooter.”
 Skinner was born April 28, 1867, at Boston, Massachusetts, the son of John Skinner and Jennie Reid (Terwilliger) Skinner. “The Public Latin School in Boston,” he writes, “offered an eight-year course of study. We had Latin twice a day regularly, five years of Greed, plenty of modern and ancient history, and mathematics, English, and French in addition. From this training I gained a lifelong love for these subjects which was further stimulated by my Harvard teachers. Today I am reviewing with great pleasure the works of Horace”.
 On July 10, 1901, Skinner married Alice Van Leer Carrick at Boston, Massachusetts. Their children are: Margaret Van Leer (Mrs. Hancort), born August 12, 1902; John Carrick, born October 21, 1905; and Alicia Prescott (Mrs. Carleton), born December 10, 1909. There are five grandchildren. Skinner’s brother, Macy Millmore Skinner, received an A.B. from Harvard in 1894, an A.M. in 1895, and a Ph.D. in 1897.
 In World War II Skinner’s son, John, was a lieutenant in the New York National Guard.
 Skinner has written textbooks on his field. In 1937 Dartmouth conferred upon him the degree of Litt. D.

Webster Cottage – Dartmouth College
[…] P.O. Skinner owned the house by 1905; Alice Van Leer Carrick (his wife) wrote The Next-To-Nothing House about the cottage and its antiques collection in 1922. The College bought the building from Skinner in 1928 and moved it for Silsby Hall to a site at 27B North Main Street across from the Gamma Delta Chi House. Now the house faced the Choate House, the other Ripley dwelling. The College moved the house again c.1966 to the site in front of Cutter Hall where it now stands, again facing the Choate House. The building now houses the Hanover Historical Society. The c.1997 faculty residence that the College attached to Cutter/Shabazz stands in line with Webster Cottage and follows its appearance.[…]”

Marin County town changes name to ‘Obama’
By Associated Press
Published: Sept. 22, 2008 | Updated: Aug. 15, 2016

OLEMA (AP) — Motorists entering the quaint, woodsy town of Olema near the sea in Marin County may notice a subtle change as they enter: it appears the burg’s name has been changed to ”Obama.”
 Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama supporter and bed and breakfast owner Kelly Emery created a perfect mirror of the green sign… [continue].
EMERY, Kelly Dee (I17281)
Nancy Graham of Jackson, Ohio, is also interesting because she received two stove patents (one omitted from LWP) in addition to her plaiting machine, and because she seems to have been an entrepreneur and manufacturer as well as an inventor. Born Nancy Jane Dobbs in Ohio, she married Christopher Graham before 1859. Her first two children were born in Indiana in 1859 and 1862. By 1865 she was back in Ohio, where her other six children were born, the last three between 1870 and 1880. As of 1870 Christopher Graham was a tinner. The family seems to have belonged to the Methodist church, as the Jackson-born children were baptized here.
 Nancy Graham died of cancer in her early 50s, just a few months after her second patent was granted. She was in Lamar, Missouri, in the last days of her illness; she died and was buried there, late in 1889. At the time of her death, she owned real property in Jackson and made a will to dispose of it and her other assets. Among her bequests is $250 to her eldest child and executor, Pelow Graham, intented, she says “as compensation for his service connected with my business at Jackson, Ohio.” She leaves $50 each to her three middle sons, and “all my real estate, ... particularly my real estate in Jackons, Ohio” equally to her three daughters, her youngest son, and her husband, Christopher’s share to go to these four children at his death, “share and share alike.”
 It is interesting to note that Graham makes her eldest son her executor, and leaves her husband only a life interest in a fifth of her real property. This, combined with her patenteed inventions and her entry into the business world, suggests that her husband may have been a poor provider or, at the very least, less ambitious and successful than his wife. An estrangement between Nancy and Christopher could also explain her move to Missouri just before her death. The other obvious explanation would be that her eldest daughter Martha had moved there, and Nancy went to her because she needed care. Interestingly enough, Martha does not seem to have been married by 1889, although she would have been 27 years old.
 The nature of Nancy Graham’s business is not yet certain, but it may have been a stove-manufacturing and / or sales entreprise.
 Nancy J. Graham was recently honored in her home town of Jackson, Ohio. The Herizon Women’s Collective included her in an exhibit, “Women to Be Proud Of — Historical Portraits of Notable Jackson County Women,” mounted at the City Library (D. Stanley, L-3/21,23,24, 6/11 & 27, 11/29/82; Jackson, Ohio, Birth & Death Records, 1867-1908; Will of Nancy J. Graham, Nov. 21, 1889; 1870 & 1880 censuses, Jackson, Ohio; Herizon, “WOmeb to Be Proud Of...,” November 1982; T. Tucker, L-8/20, 8/25, 9/1, and 9/4/84).
 Other laundry aids: Not machines per se, but definitely mechanical and thus pertinent here, are the folding ironing boards, the adjustable pant(aloon) stretchers or shapers, the curtain stretchers, and the reels and pulleys allowing clothing to be hung on a line inside and then conveyed out through an upper-floor window to dry, among other laundry aids that women invented during the 19th century. Following are single examples (all patented, all from LWP) in each group mentioned. — (Source : Mothers and Daughters of Invention: Notes for a Revised History of Technology, by Autumn Stanley). 1993.

Naomi Trudeau Morris, Spent Her Life On The Water
From The Toronto Star, 2004.
by Cathernie Dunphy, Obituary writer

 No one ever told Naomi Trudeau Morris what to do. And no one dared tell her what she couldn’t do - especially if it was because she was a woman.
 At 12, she was winning paddling races at the Island Aquatic Club but getting no recognition or ribbons because of her gender. Still, that was the year she was chosen to stroke in the club’s war canoe. At 14, as a member of the Toronto Dolphinette swim club, she set a Canadian swim record for the medley relay. Only the war prevented her from going to the Olympics.
 When she was in her mid-20s, she bought herself a snipe sailing boat so she and her sister Vivienne could join the Queen City Yacht Club. The fact that women weren’t allowed to be sailing members didn’t stop her, and in 1948 the Trudeau sisters became the first full-fledged female club members.
 "Women sailed in those days but they couldn’t be full members of the club," recalled Vivienne Trudeau Doyle. At the end of that season they were third in racing points. And they won the club Sportsman Trophy. In 1953, Naomi Morris won the club championship flag in The Puffin, the dinghy that she bought because she wanted to go farther, faster. "Naomi was always the daredevil," said her sister. "She had to wear leather gloves to keep the wind from whipping off the sail. She loved speed."
 So of course, one year after the World Masters Games premiered in Toronto, which was when the Canadian Masters program started up in the city, she was down at the Balmy Beach Canoe Club ready to sign up for masters paddling. It was 1986, she was 64 and she was also almost legally blind.
 Russ Dunn was the man in charge of the Masters paddling program there. He was skeptical about Mrs. Morris’ ability."Usually paddlers don’t last long. You kneel on one knee when you paddle and after five minutes your knee starts to hurt," he said. "You have to be strong and it’s hard to keep in stroke."
 And usually master paddlers were closer to 30 - the minimum age then for the Masters category. (Now it is 25.) But Mrs. Morris had been working out at Alfie’s Gym. She was strong, she had perfect balance, and if they did tip, she certainly could swim her way out of trouble. Plus she had never quit anything.
 Dunn didn’t know that, nor did he know she couldn’t see much out on the water, so he gave her a tryout. "She was quite a find." They paired up and paddled C2s (two person canoes) in regattas as far afield as Halifax. With other women in the club, Mrs. Morris paddled C4s (four person canoes), kayak 4s, kayak tandem and even kayak singles a couple of times. The Canadian Canoe Association has a trophy in her name. She may well have been the oldest woman in the world still paddling when she stopped at about age 76.
 She and Dunn also starred in a Body Break television spot on the benefits of physical fitness. That commercial was on display along with a large tangle of racing medals, winning pennants, flags and photos from her long association on and in water at the Balmy Beach Canoe Club on May 9 at a celebration of Mrs. Morris’ life. She died at home April 12 with her daughter, Renee, and her guide dog, Juanita, by her side. She was 82. She wasn’t blind. She went where she wanted. Did what she wanted. She just couldn’t see," said karin larson, a publisher of a yachting magazine and one of Mrs. Morris’ oldest friends.
 They met on the Toronto Islands, where Mrs. Morris grew up after her family moved there from the Beach area of Toronto. Mrs. Morris was swimming by age 5, canoeing and kayaking a couple of years later.
 Yet her sister said she was sick most of her life. A 2-pound premature baby, at age 2 she pulled a pot of boiling water off the stove onto herself - and didn’t walk for a couple of years. A family maid mistakenly fed a 6-year-old Naomi deadly nightshade, which burned out the lining of her stomach. At 8 she was bedridden for two years with a very serious case of bronchitis that became pneumonia. "Then when she was 23, she fell into a stagnant pool. She developed a mastoid infection in both ears, meningitis, lockjaw and pernicious anemia a a result. The doctor declared her too weak for surgery, and predicted she wouldn’t make it." Her last illness left her deaf in one ear and with no reflexes. Her reaction time was always slow so that when the starting gun went off she was always last. But she always caught up.
 "Noni worked hard. She was determined and always wanted to win. And she did," said her sister.
 Some time after a brief first marriage that produced a daughter Linda, she met and married a yoyo salesman named Claude Morris and had two more children, Renee and a son, Andre, who died in 1995. An amateur artist, she taught crafts as a teaching assistant at Withrow Public School even after she was diagnosed with glaucoma at age 48. It didn’t hold her back. She used to ride her 10-speed silver Peugeot down to the Balmy Beach club when all she could see were vague shapes. She travelled to the downtown YMCA for aquafit swimming sessions three times a week. And she had her paddling.
 "She steered the boat. She couldn’t see but she could steer and she was strong and we depended on her," said Mary Ellen Fyfle, who paddled C4s with Mrs. Morris.
 In 1995, Mrs. Morris had a hip replacement and went to San Rafael, Calif. to meet and bring home Juanita, a chocolate brown lab guide dog who became her best friend. When her husband died in 2002 and she began suffering from Alzheimer disease, she and Juanita moved in with her daughter Renee and Renee’s husband, Larry Taylor. "Juanita allowed Mom independence and freedom. Now she is helping me get through this sad time," Renee said.

Old downtown hardware store’s fate is up in the air
Retail and residential seen as possible uses for antiquated building
Boston Business Journal – August 10, 2007
by Michelle Hillman – Journal staff

 The Hardware Outlet Co. is an odd duck among the sleek office towers on High Street. After the death of owner Francis Ramacorti, his widow and the law firm in charge of the estate are trying to decide what to do with the property.
The Hardware Outlet Co. was more than just a dirty, disorganized sliver of a store where office workers could go to find random knickknacks for home repairs.
 The store, which has been closed since the owner, Francis “Frank” Ramacorti died a year ago, was somewhat of a landmark in Boston given it was the home-improvement store in a district populated by the 9 to 5 crowd. Located in Boston’s Financial District at 51 High St., the store gained notoriety for its unusual location and purpose.
 Ramacorti also became known himself for his refusal to sell the property, which had caught the attention of many commercial developers eyes over the years.
 Now his widow, Karen Ramacorti, and Ropes & Gray LLP — the law firm in charge of the Ramacorti estate — are trying to decide what to do with the property which is sandwiched between the 99 High St. tower and Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority offices.
 Karen, who resides in Reading, said she is in discussions with one hardware store operator who would like to lease the property but she has not made a decision about whether she will lease or sell the building.
 Though the slender building is just shy of 12,000 square feet and is assessed at $916,600, it could be an attractive site for a small retailer, boutique company or even for residential uses, said David Begelfer, chief executive officer of the Massachusetts chapter of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties. Begelfer guessed that if sold, the property could garner approximately $1 million or possibly more depending on how many stories could be added to the four-story building. The lack of development sites in Boston, no matter how small, could also drive interest and price.
 “The location is great, it’s a relatively small building,” Begelfer said. “You (could) own your own building, and that’s rare in Boston.”
 Karen Ramacorti expects she’ll make a decision by this fall and said although there are sentimental reasons to see the property continue as a hardware store, she acknowledged “it’s not a very good business decision.”
 Her husband purchased the property in 1934 as a real estate investment and never intended to run the hardware store until the day he died. But Ramacorti knew a lot about hardware and repairs and grew to know his customers, said Karen. The store was so narrow that there was only one aisle up the center stacked from floor to ceiling with odds and ends.
 “I think he had a lot of years invested in it and he liked it,” said Karen Ramacorti. “A lot of people come in in the neighborhood… it was almost like a social club.”
 Customers would come to poke around in the old, unconventional hardware store to find things they couldn’t get elsewhere. Now the family is in the process of removing paints and pesticides from the building, which is stocked to the roof with hardware supplies. There are no family members interested in carrying on the hardware store’s legacy, said Karen Ramacorti.
 The closing of the Hardware Outlet is representative of more than just another small, family-owned business fading away or an antiquated piece of real estate ripe for redevelopment. It’s symptomatic of what is happening to small businesses across the region and country, said Steve Adams, regional advocate for the U.S. Small Business Administration in Boston.
 “This business is closing its doors not because they couldn’t make it but because the owner died,” said Adams. “This is a really interesting microcosm of what’s going to happen all over the city and all over the region because small business (owners) have no plan after they retire or after they die.”
 Adams, who used to visit the “beat-up old hardware store,” said he thought it was unlikely the store would continue as a hardware outlet, given the property’s value.

Perry W. Craft was born on March 30, 1928, in Cambridge, Queens, NB. Perry first became interested in “Country Music” when he listened to Don Messer and His New Brunswick Lumberjacks on the radio. This influenced him to take violin lessons. He quickly became bored with classical music and decided to apply what he had learned to playing country music. By the time he was 16, he was playing for dances all around the country.
In 1948, he joined the Maritime Farmer Barn Dance Band in Saint John. They had a half-hour radio show each Saturday night and played for dances four to six nights a week. They also toured Nova Scotia playing at various locations throughout the province. In 1957, the band had a half-hour show on CHSJ-TV each week. Perry’s work forced him to give up band work in 1958, but he continued to play and enter competitions when his work permitted. He still plays for special functions and gatherings around the province.
Perry took first place in the Fiddle Contest at the Atlantic National Exhibition in 1967 and 1968 and second place in 1982 and 1983. Perry and his wife Marilyn live in Quispamsis. They have two children, Mrs. Barbara Lowney and Dr. James Craft, both of Saint John. (Source

Retired actor recalls area’s celebrity lifestyle
By Diane Welch (December 7, 2005) [Union-Tribune San Diego]
DEL MAR – Longtime resident Don Terwilliger is famous for his tales of a bygone era. His ability to recall Del Mar during the 1930s and 1940s, when celebrity sightings were common, make him a valuable resource for writers of local history. But Terwilliger’s stories retell only part of his colorful life.
 Encinitas writer Wendy Haskett has featured Terwilliger’s recollections of stardom in her book, “Backward Glances,” an entertaining collection of San Dieguito-area residents’ stories. “Don is unfailingly interesting,” Haskett said. “His stories are so unique.”
 As a professional dancer working in Hollywood, Las Vegas and San Diego’s Starlight Opera, then later as an actor on television, some of Terwilliger’s memories have a glamorous aspect with a humorous twist. There was the moment when one shoulder of Jayne Mansfield’s dress accidentally slipped down during one of her shows in Las Vegas. Terwilliger, who worked in Las Vegas for seven years, was partnered with her in the nightclub show, when part of her breast was suddenly revealed, he said during a recent interview. He let Mansfield know, in an aside comment.
 Then there was the time when, on the sitcom “Murphy Brown,” Terwilliger had a single word of dialogue aimed at a very pregnant Murphy. As she stepped out of an elevator, he uttered, “Moooooo.” Terwilliger said he worked on the show for five years, mostly as a stand-in for camera blocking and as an extra.
 Early in his show business career, Terwilliger appeared on television in the General Electric Theater, hosted by Ronald Reagan from 1954 to 1962. “It was so much fun. I not only danced but did skits and comedy spoofs,” he said. Later, Terwilliger was seated behind Reagan at a horse auction at the Del Mar Racetrack. After tapping him on the shoulder, Terwilliger chatted with Reagan about the show and shared pleasantries with Nancy Reagan, who was with him. “A year later, exactly the same thing happened again, at the same auction. I tapped Reagan on his shoulder to get his attention, and said to him, ’It’s me again!’ and Reagan burst out laughing,” Terwilliger said.
 When historical facts about Del Mar need verifying, Terwilliger is happy to oblige.Last month, he was invited to meet with movie stars Jane Russell and Terry Moore at L’Auberge Del Mar Resort and Spa. “They drove up in a chauffeured limousine,” he said. “Still looking fabulous! We talked about Del Mar back in the 1940s and looked at vintage photos in the L’Auberge’s Jimmy Durante Pub. I was able to name unidentified figures in those photos for them.” His knowledge of Jimmy Durante’s connection to Del Mar will be used in the special features of a DVD re-release of the notorious 1943 Howard Hughes movie “The Outlaw,” which starred Russell and Moore.
 When a cracked kneecap and, later, an Achilles tendon injury ended his 20-year dancing career, Terwilliger was hired by 20th Century Fox as a stand-in on several TV shows. “I knew the casting agent, who asked me if I’d consider doing stand-in work for Ryan O’Neal on ‘Peyton Place,’ ” Terwilliger said. His most memorable acting was an 11-year run on “Cheers,” where he had bit parts at the famous Boston pub. When the show went off the air in 1993, Terwilliger retired.
 Today, at 74, he is the former president and a current active member of the Del Mar Historical Society. Terwilliger is helping preserve the past by sharing his knowledge of local history. “It’s something that I’m very proud of,” he said, adding that he’ll continue to do it as long as he is able.

Tochter eines Überlebenden spricht für ihren Vater
von Kathrin Aldenhoff – 09.11.2015

„Unsere Eltern waren Überlebende des Holocausts“, sagt Miriam Dvir, auf einer Gedenkfeier an die Reichspogromnacht. Sie ist von Israel nach Bremen gereist, um am Jahrestag für ihren Vater zu sprechen.
 Die beiden Schwestern sind hier, um die Mission ihres Vaters zu erfüllen. Sein ganzes Leben lang wollte Martin Bialystock seine Geschichte erzählen, damit niemand den Holocaust vergisst.
 Inzwischen lebt er in Tel Aviv, ist 92 Jahre alt und sitzt im Rollstuhl. Deshalb sind nun seine Töchter Miriam Dvir und Aya Stauber von Israel nach Bremen gereist, um am Jahrestag der Reichspogromnacht seine Geschichte zu erzählen.
 „Unsere Eltern waren Überlebende des Holocausts. Sie konnten nicht einen Tag ihres Lebens vergessen, was sie durchgemacht hatten“, sagt Miriam Dvir. Sie steht am Rednerpult vor den Gästen der Gedenkfeier der Fraktionen der Bremischen Bürgerschaft neben dem Gedenkstein an der Dechanatstraße. Die 67-Jährige spricht auf Deutsch, langsam, immer wieder stockt ihre Stimme. „Wir Kinder waren dazu da, ihr Leben lebenswert zu machen.“
 Sie und ihre Schwester Aya sind Holocaust-Überlebende der zweiten Generation. Ihr Leben und das ihrer Schwester sei von Schatten überlagert, die im Haus der Familie stets gegenwärtig waren. „Uns fehlte das wunderbare Glücksgefühl, von den Großeltern geliebt zu werden. Wir hatten keine.“ Ihre Stimme zittert, Miriam Dvir macht eine kurze Pause. Ihre Großeltern, also die Eltern ihres Vaters Martin, wurden in Auschwitz ermordet. Und auch Martins jüngere Schwester starb in Auschwitz. Miriam Dvir hat denselben Vornamen wie sie. Ihre Eltern gaben ihr den Namen ihrer Tante, die sie nie kennenlernen durfte, weil Miriam Bialystock als junges Mädchen in Auschwitz ermordet wurde.
 Martin Bialystock war 15 Jahre alt, als Nazis am 9. November 1938 die Scheiben des Bekleidungsgeschäfts seiner Eltern einwarfen und den Laden plünderten. Seine Schwester und er erlebten die Reichspogromnacht voller Angst in der Wohnung der Familie über dem Geschäft. Wenige Tage später musste er mit anderen jüdischen Jugendlichen Gruben auf dem jüdischen Friedhof ausheben. Für die Bremer Juden, die in der Nacht ermordet wurden.
 Kurze Zeit später wurde die Familie Bialystock gezwungen, ihr Geschäft an einen Konkurrenten zu verkaufen, die Familie flüchtete aus Bremen. Martin Bialystock floh in die Niederlande und von dort aus nach Palästina, damals britisches Mandatsgebiet. Mit 17 Jahren schloss er sich der britischen Armee an. Martin Bialystock kämpfte in Nordafrika und Italien gegen Nazi-Deutschland und suchte in Europa nach seiner Familie.
 Seine Eltern und seine Schwester Miriam flohen von Bremen nach Belgien, sie wollten ein Schiff in die USA oder ein anderes sicheres Land nehmen. Doch die Familie musste in Antwerpen warten, weil die Zahl der amerikanischen Visa beschränkt war. Sie musste zu lange warten: Die Gestapo verhaftete die Familie in Antwerpen, Martins Eltern und seine Schwester wurden nach Auschwitz deportiert und dort ermordet.
 Das ist die Geschichte, die Martin Bialystock sein Leben lang erzählen will, vor allem den jungen Menschen, damit der Holocaust nicht vergessen wird. Vor sechs Jahren war er in seine alte Heimat Bremen zurückgekehrt. Er hatte bei der Gedenkstunde für die in der Reichspogromnacht ermordeten Juden eine Rede gehalten, war Ehrengast der Nacht der Jugend im Bremer Rathaus gewesen und hatte mit Bremer Schülern über den Holocaust gesprochen. Damals hatte ihn seine Tochter Miriam Dvir begleitet. Noch einmal nach Deutschland zu kommen, dazu fehlte dem 92-Jährigen dieses Mal die Kraft.
 Rabbiner Netanel Teitelbaum stimmte bei der Gedenkfeier eine Totenklage an und betete mit den Anwesenden, Schülerinnen der St.-Johannis-Schule lasen die Namen von 60 Bremer Juden vor – stellvertretend für alle, die Opfer der NS-Diktatur wurden. Die Fraktionsvorsitzenden Björn Tschöpe (SPD), Thomas Röwekamp (CDU), Maike Schäfer (Grüne) und Kristina Vogt (Linke) legten einen Kranz nieder.
 In seiner Rede erinnerte Björn Tschöpe an die fünf Bremer Juden, die in der Reichspogromnacht ermordet wurden. Ihnen ist der Gedenkstein an der Dechanatstraße gewidmet. Er erinnerte auch an die 170 Menschen mit jüdischem Glauben, die in dieser Nacht festgenommen, durch die Stadt getrieben und ins Konzentrationslager Sachsenhausen deportiert wurden. Tschöpe mahnte: „Bremer waren sie wie wir. Aber kaum jemand hat damals protestiert, als sie zum Bahnhof getrieben wurden.“

“Reminiscent And Historical” — Berwick Register, Wednesday Evening, July 2, 1924.

 The following clippings from the Messenger and Visitor (now the Maritime Baptist) of May 10, 1905, refer to the lives and death of Rev. David Chase and his wife, in the year 1844, of whom reference was made in an item in last week’s issue of the Register. Mrs. Mansfield Nichols, granddaughter of Rev. and Mrs. Chase, has requested us to publish these clippings, which should prove of great interest, especially to the older settlers of Western Kings.
Rev. David Chase (Messenger and Visitor, May 10, 1905)
 Often when reading accounts of the lives and grand deeds of departed ministers, such as William Hall, Dr. Welton, and others, my mind invariably turns to one noble man of God, and the wife also being worthy of such a husband. This man was the Rev. David Chase, the first person granted a license to preach from the Second Cornwallis (now Berwick) church. His wife was Jane Morse, a sister of Daniel Morse of Nictaux, after whom her son, also D. M. Welton, was named. No family, I think, is better known today in the Annapolis Valley among Baptist people. Old Mr. Daniel Morse of Nictaux was grandfather of Rev. L. D. Morse, of Wolfville. One sister was Mrs. Sidney Welton, mother of Dr. Welton, another, Mrs. Abel Parker, mother of Rev. D. O. Parker and Rev. David Freeman’s wife. This makes Mrs. Parker grandmother of Mrs. L. D. Morse, also of Mrs. Dr. Trotter of Acadia.
 But the one of this family that my letter is especially intended to bring before our minds is gone, the baby of the household, who became, at the age of seventeen, the wife of the Rev. David Chase, left her home and went to a distant part of New Brunswick. In those days it seemed as far away as the North West or British Columbia does now. There at Jemseg this noble couple, rich in faith toward God, worked and prayed, forgetting their own health in their anxiety for the salvation of souls. In many places there were no carriage roads and they went on horseback through paths in the forest. Twice Mrs. Chase took her wedding ring off her finger and put in the mission box because she had no money to give. The ring was dear to her heart as her husband knew, and once he planned and bought it back, but the second time it had to go. How many would do the same today?
 After eight or ten years of hard work, exposure and anxiety, broke the strong constitution, and the faithful child of God laid down the cross and went to receive from his Master the crown. The young wife could not stand the blow (though she thought of her four little ones) and in less than two months they laid her beside her loved one. Mr. Chase died March 24th, and on the 22nd of May the same year, she closed her eyes to earthly scenes to behold the glories of heaven.
 Over the graves of this devoted couple the church erected a beautiful monument with told how much they thought of them. One of the sons died at the age of 22. Another son is doing business in England. The two daughters, one Mrs. Jonathan Sanford, the other Mrs. Reuben Loomer, still live in Weston, a branch of the Berwick church. Two gentlemen asked Mrs. Sanford for her father’s license to preach, as they wished to place it in the museum of Acadia College, I suppose it is there today.

Dear Editor: - I have read with interest the sketch of my uncle the Rev. David I. Chase in the Messenger and Visitor of May 10th. His paternal home was in Welsford, a few miles northward from Berwick. In my early boyhood I remember him visiting my parents, feeble and wasting away in consumption. I send you as a relic of the past a copy of the License given to him in the old Pleasant Valley meeting house seventy-one years ago. I am holding the original, in the Rev. Wm. Chipman’s hand-writing, and characteristic style of composition, with a number of other relics for the Acadia University museum among which is correspondence of Rev. Wm. Chipman and his son Isaac, when Isaac was a student at Waterville, Me., and his youthful autobiography, and journal when a student, and the last letter he wrote to his father, pleading for the college a few days before his untimely death in Minas Basin.
License of the 2nd Bapt. Church for Bro. D. I. Chase.
These may certify that our dear brother David I. Chase a member of the 2nd Baptist church in Cornwallis having improved his gifts for some time past in Prayer Exhortation and Preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that being satisfied that he has public gifts, do now license him to improve the same in manner as heretofore and wherever the Lord in his wise providence may be pleased to direct his steps. And our prayer to God is, that he may be directed in infinite wisdom, and guided by his Holy Spirit into the mysteries of Redemption, and prove himself to be a good minister of Jesus Christ, and his labors of love hereby be abundantly blessed of the Lord.
Signed in behalf and by order of said church,
Alfred Skinner. – Done in Conference, 26th July, 1834.

CHASE, Rev. David I. (I7014)
   George Terwilliger, attorney at law, Justice of the Peace, Notary Public and insurance agent, at Fulton, was born in the town of New Scotland, Albany, N. Y., and is the son of John and Margaret (Reid) Terwilliger, his father being of Holland descent and his mother of Scotch.
 At the age of nine years he moved with his parents to De Witt, Onondaga, N. Y., and remained with his father on the farm, receiving the ordinary common-school education, until he entered the Onondaga Academy, located at Onondaga Hollow, where he took a four years’ course and graduated in the class of 1850. He then commenced the study of the law with Forbes & Sheldon, in the city of Syracuse, and was admitted to practice in all the Courts of New York State on the 5th of July, 1852. During the time he was studying law he frequently assisted in editing the Syracuse Daily Journal, one of the leading newspapers in the interior of New York State, and after his admission to the Bar became editor-in-chief of that paper. He remained in this position for about two years, when he resigned on account of a change in the proprietorship, he being Free-Soil in his proclivities, while the new proprietors were pro-slavery in their views. Shortly after his resigning he was elected City Attorney of the city of Syracuse, receivng the highest vote cast for any one on his ticket except the candidate for City Treasurer. In 1857 he removed to New York city, where he practiced law, and was also honored with positions in the Custom House, and in the Tax Commissioner’s office. While a resident of New York he was admitted to practice in the United States District and Circuit Courts.
 In the summer of 1870 he came West in accordance with a long considered intention, and purchased the Sterling Gazette, which paper he conducted with ability and success until March, 1872, when he sold out and moved to Fulton, purchasing the Fulton Journal. In the fall of 1872 he sold a one-half interest in the Journal to Dr. W. C. Snyder, now State Senator, he taking the editorial department, and Dr. Snyder the business department. In 1876 he sold his interest in the Journal, and virtually laid aside the editorial quill. When the Legislature of 1877 convened, his reputation was such that he easily secured a clerkship in the House of Representatives, and served during the session. In the spring of that year he was elected Justice of the Peace of Fulton, and on his return from Springfield entered upon the duties of his office. In June, 1877, he was employed in editing and compiling Bent’s History of Whiteside, and completed the work in the following January. At the session of the Legislature in 1879 he was elected First Assistant Secretary of the Senate, and was, re-elected at the session of 1881, the Senators being so well pleased with his services that at this session they presented him with an elegant gold watch. At the special session of 1881 he was elected Secretary of the Senate. During the years 1874, 1875 and 1876, he was City Clerk of the city of Fulton. He has been Justice of the Peace of the town of Fulton for eight years, and at the late spring election was again elected, without opposition, for four years more.
 Mr. Terwilliger has been a member of the Masonic Order since 1862, having been made a Mason in New York city. He was married while editing the Syracuse Daily Journal, to Miss Matilda B. Fowler, daughter of John and Eliza Fowler, Mrs. Terwilliger being a native of New York city. They have two children, both girls: Lillian, wife of Henry H. Denton, of Newtown, Queens, N. Y., and Georgiana, unmarried.
 Mr. T. is Republican in politics, and has been an active member of the party since its organization. He is a popular Justice, his thorough knowledge of law and judicial turn of mind enabling him to make his rulings and decisions in accordance with law and evidence, so that his judgments are seldom reversed. As a writer Mr. Terwilliger is favorably known throughout Northern and Western Illinois by his connection with the press, and his able compilation of the History of Whiteside County in 1877. (Source: Portrait and Biographical Album of Whiteside, Illinois, Chapman Brothers Publishing, Chicago, 1885., Page 327).

In the 1850 Census of DeWitt, Onondaga NY, p. 337, Roll M432_570, George is listed as 22 years of age, and a “student at Law” 
TERWILLIGER, George (I6487)
   John Harpham, dealer in harness and saddlery hardware, Third Street, Sterling, was born in Madison, N. Y., Oct. 27, 1828, being the seventh in a family of ten children, – four sons and six daughters. His parents were Septibah and Jane (McAlpine) Harpham, natives respectively of England and Scotland. The senior Harpham was a farmer by occupation, and died Jan. 11, 1840: the widow survived until 1863.
 John was reared on the farm and in the common school until 19 years of age, when he left home and went to Chenango Forks to learn the harness trade, remaining a year and a half. He then engaged in the same business for himself at Bridgeport, N. Y., for one and a half years. Then he sold out and for about three years attended the Fulton and Cazenovia Seminaries, a portion of this time teaching school. Then he married and settled in Fayetteville, Onondaga Co., N. Y., where he followed his trade a year and a half. Selling out, he came to Sterling, since which time he has been successfully engaged in the business stated at the beginning of this sketch, both wholesale and retail. In this line he is the leading man in Sterling.
 Mr. Harpham is a Republican and a Christian gentleman, belonging to the Congregational Church at Sterling. He was married May 22, 1853, to Nancy Terwilliger, a native of Onondaga Co., N. Y., and they have three children, Bertha A., Fanny E. and John L. Mrs. H. is also a member of the Congregational Church. (Source: Portrait and Biographical Album of Whiteside County, Illinois, Chapman Brothers Publishing, Chicago, 1885., Page 295).

 He was in the harness business in Bridgeport, but sold out to attend the Fulton and Cazenova Seminaries. After three years of study, he engaged in business in Fayetteville, NY for a year before moving to Rockford, IL, and then, via stagecoach, to Sterling in 1855. There he became a merchant in harnesses, saddlery, etc. His brother, Henry C., may have owned this business with him. All four of Henry C.’s sons worked in the business until 1884, when they moved to Lincoln, Nebraska, to form their own saddlery business, The Harpham Brothers Company, which continued to operate there at least until the 1930s.
 John M. C. built the John Harpham building, which graced downtown Sterling until the 1990s, when it was torn down. He and Nancy lived at 511 1st Street in Sterling. (Source: Geoffrey Galt Harpham, December 2, 2003). 
HARPHAM, John M. C. (I6819)
   Baptist minister, journalist, and author; b. 19 Feb. 1805 in Billtown, N.S., son of Asahel Bill and Mary Rand; m. first 20 April 1826 Isabella Lyons in Cornwallis Township, N.S., and they had at least five children including one daughter; m. secondly 14 May 1873 Mrs Susan L. Dove in Boston; d. 4 Aug. 1891 in St Martins, N.B.
 Because his father died when he was about nine years old, the major influences on Ingraham Ebenezer Bill’s early life were his older brother Caleb Rand Bill and his minister, Edward Manning. By both men he was directed along the path of Christian commitment and public duty. On 8 Aug. 1824 he was baptized by Manning and joined the Cornwallis Baptist Church.
 After a long and intense struggle with his own fears and doubts, Bill began preaching in Cornwallis Township in 1827. The following year he moved to Nictaux, N.S., to assist the elderly Thomas Handley Chipman. Of Bill’s ordination on 2 March 1829 Manning recorded in his diary, “I never saw a more solemn and joyful lad ordained.” On Chipman’s death the following year, Bill became minister of the large and sprawling pastorate of Wilmot-Nictaux. He quickly established himself as one of the most effective and popular young ministers in the Maritimes. In a series of dramatic revivals he increased the size of his church until by 1837 it was the largest Baptist church in the Maritime colonies. Except for some 18 months as pastor of the Fredericton Baptist Church in 1840-42, he would remain at Nictaux until 1852. In that year he returned to New Brunswick to serve as pastor of the Germain Street Baptist Church in Saint John. In later years he ministered to churches in Carleton (Saint John) and St Martins.
 Given his effectiveness as a preacher, it is not surprising that Bill should be looked to for leadership in other areas of denominational affairs. Although he lacked much formal schooling himself, he developed an early and deep respect for education. His known sympathies for Baptist involvement in education made him a natural ally of the aggressive Halifax Baptists who by the fall of 1838 were determined to establish a denominational college. At a meeting with Edmund Albern Crawley and John Pryor, held at Bill’s house in Nictaux in October, the decision was made to found Queen’s College (renamed Acadia in 1841). When the decision was formally approved by the Nova Scotia Baptist Education Society on 15 November, Bill was named to the society’s managing committee and appointed financial agent for the new college.
 For the next 50 years Acadia would have few more dedicated or hard-working supporters. Between 1838 and 1884 Bill served first on the managing committee and then on the college’s board of governors. He repeatedly canvassed the Maritime colonies seeking financial support and students for the institution. In 1844-45 he travelled as far south as Georgia in his efforts to secure funding. The governor of South Carolina gave him $50, but most other Southerners would not contribute because Maritime Baptists supported the abolition of slavery. In 1849 and again in 1874 he travelled to Great Britain to raise funds. In recognition of his years of dedication to education, Acadia conferred on him an honorary doctorate in divinity in 1881.
 Bill’s visit to the United States had made him strongly aware of the need for “female education.” He had provided a good education for his only daughter, Mary, and in the fall of 1845, with his help, she opened a boarding-school for young ladies in her father’s home in Nictaux, the first such school run by Nova Scotia Baptists. Bill would campaign long and hard for greater educational opportunities for females and would live to see women graduating from Acadia College in the 1880s.
 Bill was clearly unafraid of change in society or in his church. He was one of the leaders of the temperance cause in the Nictaux area, and by 1834 he could proudly report that all dispensers of alcohol in the district had been forced to close their doors. During his brief ministry in Fredericton, he presided over a church that introduced organ music into the service. Several scandalized members transferred to other, more conservative churches.
 Bill was an enthusiastic advocate of Maritime Baptist involvement in foreign missions. He tried unsuccessfully in the 1850s to organize a Baptist mission to Australia, perhaps because two of his sons had gone there to settle. In 1870 he was one of the first to call for the establishment of a separate Maritime Baptist mission field in Asia; for 25 years the church had supported American Baptist work in Burma.
 Virtually every aspect of denominational life saw Bill’s energetic leadership. For ten years (1846-56) he served as secretary of the newly formed Baptist Convention of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, and later he was president of that organization. In 1852 he became editor of the Christian Visitor, a Baptist newspaper in New Brunswick, and he tirelessly filled this office until 1872.
 His long experience with the Baptist church, his central role in its development, and his intimate acquaintance with the founding fathers of the denomination led him as “a sacred duty” to compile a history of the Regular Baptists of the Maritime provinces. Aside from John Mockett Cramp’s series of articles in the Christian Messenger in the 1860s, Bill’s Fifty years with the Baptist ministers and churches of the Maritime provinces of Canada (Saint John, 1880) was the first attempt at such a compilation. Although the work is largely narrative rather than analytical, its publication was none the less an important event in the development of Maritime Baptists’ awareness of their past.
 An effective evangelist, pastor, and denominational organizer, Ingraham Ebenezer Bill was foremost among what might be termed the second generation of Maritime Baptist leaders.

Angus Macdonnell of "Cullachy" in Glengarry, Scotland, came to Antigonish before the dawn of the 19th century. He was married to Ann Bigelow, a native of Cornwallis, Nova Scotia. She first belonged to the Protestant Church but became a convert to the Catholic faith, and lived to the age of 106 years. The issue of her marriage to Mr. Macdonnell was as follows: James, Angus, Charles, William, John and Ann. All the sons excepting James and Angus were, during the greater portion of their lives, Master Mariners, sailing their own vessels, as was their father before them.
The son James came to Port Hood in early life and remained there all the rest of his days. He was widely known, and everywhere respected in the County of Inverness. He was born in Antigonish on May 30th, 1821, and died at Port Hood, September 21st, 1880. He was appointed Prothonotary of the Supreme Court for the County of Inverness on November 30th, 1853; a Justice of the Peace on 13th August 1854; Inspector of Schools-the first for this County under the Public School law, in 1864; Commissioner for taking Affidavit’s in the Supreme Court in 1856; Captain of the 2nd Regiment of Militia, Inverness, in 1863; and Registrar of Deeds for this County in January 1871. In all these positions he did credit to himself, and justice to the public. He was an official of acknowledged accuracy and neatness, with a manner and memory that were quite uncommon.
Mr. James Macdonnell was married to Charlotte Fuller of Arichat. Her father was John Fuller, Esquire, who was successively High Sheriff and County Treasurer for the County of Richmond. She was born in Arichat on October 11th, 1824, and died at Port Hood on May 5th, 1894. The family of Mr. and Mrs. James Macdonnell were the following: William, who became a Master Mariner, sailed the seven seas for many years, and is now exploiting our absorbing Western heritage; John A., who succeeded his father as our respected Registrar of Deeds and Prothonotary; Thomas in Seattle, Washington; Mary Louise, who lives in Antigonish, and was married to the late Dougald MacDonald, formerly a prosperous merchant of Port Hood, and latterly one of the best respected commercial travellers of Nova Scotia; Annie Laurie, who is married to Samuel McAdam, a printer and publisher of long experience now in the United States; Ada, who died young and unmarried; and Maggie, who was married to the late Hon. Daniel MacNeil Judge of the County Court for District No. 6.
Angus Macdonnell, brother to James lived some years in Inverness County where he learned the trade of Saddler and Harness maker.. 3e removed from this, and ultimately settled down into a life, of mercantile business at Pugwash in the County of Cumberland.
John, son of Angus Senior, also spent some time in this, and was appointed Deputy Sheriff for the District of Juste-au-Corps n 1820. He afterwards moved away never to return.
Ann, daughter of Angus Senior, was married to Captain Artemus Cameron, a Nova Scotian, who was drowned on the Grand Banks. [n her early widowhood she came to Port Hood and started an hotel known at that time as the "Cameron House". She kept and conduce-;ed that house creditably all the rest of her life. After her death her mother took charge and held it till she was past the century mile stone. 4s a memorial of happy things that were, this aged and vacant house, till stands, silent, sad and gray.

Omaha – November 25, 1935
    Henrietta C. Jann Smith was born in New York January 13, 1854. In 1856 my father and mother moved to Iowa City, Iowa. They had just lost a two-month-old baby boy. There were three families: the Janns; the Hoetzes with two children and Grandma Hoetz; and the Groegler family. Also, two children and three unmarried men. One was my father’s half brother, Adam Gill, who I was very fond of and he liked me.
 They thought it would be best to move to a new country. Could live much cheaper and work than in New York. Father, Mother, and Uncle Gill had just received their share of money from their home in Germany. Mr. Hoetz was a carpenter so he built an eight room house. Uncle got married. Each had two rooms but the carpenter wanted his money. Did many things to destroy the property. At last the three others offered to buy his share. He wanted what it cost to build it, all four shares. They at last gave it to him. He built a much nicer house for himself at the next corner, but did not live long. My brother was born but passed away in 1859, the year sister Margaret was born.
 Father worked in a large stagecoach shop. In 1860 the company moved to Des Moines, Iowa, so Father was transferred. He went ahead of the family until he could find a place to live in Des Moines. Came back after us in two months, packed our household goods, sent them ahead on a big transfer wagon.
 One morning at 4 o’clock there was a stagecoach at Uncle’s door, (where we stayed after our goods had gone). Father, Mother, baby sister and myself started fro our new home, Des Moines. I loved my uncle -- was hard to part from them and little boy.
 Well, a long trip for only 125 miles. They changed horses every 25 miles. We were always glad to get out (and) walk to some spring or well for a drink of water while they were getting the horses ready. Sometimes a new driver. I do not remember any other woman besides my mother or children besides little Margaret or as we called her then, Dodie or Gretchen. We had the back seat (first class) for the trip. It was war time. There was one soldier with us. We had some lunch with us. Stopped at a tavern for supper, some of the meals, Grimmell one place. Drove until next day in the afternoon, 4 o’clock. 125 miles make it now in about three hours or less. When we arrived at the state office in Des Moines, very tired.
 They took us to my father’s boarding house. We had a nice large room. Good German meals. We had to stay two weeks until our goods came, then we moved into a small house with another family on the other side who we knew as they also came from Iowa City. Mr. Seburger (sp?) also worked for the stage company.
 Well, it was September. You could not get much to put up for winter. A few tomatoes. Mother made jam and pickles and half bushel apples bought from a man in a covered wagon from Missouri.
 I had five brothers and three sisters. Three brothers died when young. Sister Louly when she was four years old. August, the oldest to live married, passed away at 68. Albert, the youngest child, never married, died in 1905.
 There are we three sisters left. Pearl, 72 a widow, lives in her house alone. Margaret, 76, also a widow, lives with her daughter, Margaret Alden and family. Myself, now 82, oldest of family, live with my oldest daughter, Martha (Smith) Erion and family. Have a very good and comfortable home. Had many friends and good neighbors, but not many left now.
 Well, Christmas was coming and afraid we could get no evergreen tree then like now. So my father went out in the woods, got a wild cherry tree, kept it in limewater six weeks, did now some green. Could not get wax candles so he had some holders made, cut large candles in half. Bought gold leaf for nuts and apples. Mother baked and frosted cookies with anise. We were the only children who had a Christmas tree.
 Well, we got a larger house. Sister Pearl was born in May. In June little brother Andrew passed away. Next year Father put up a shop for himself, but soon it was war time. Father had so much work. Had to have more room so he bought some land from Reverend Bird, the First Presbyterian minister in Des Moines, built a small house and shop room for eight workmen and lumber and tools. Later put up a brick house. We children had an old stagecoach for a playhouse. When it rained we put down the curtains. Had so much fun.
 Right back of our place was an old farm, part was an old cemetery. All kinds of wild fruit, one of the biggest walnut trees I ever saw. Everybody came for nuts in the fall. We always gathered a barrel full. The old man who owned it finally sold the place to the City. They opened Second Street, dug up the graves they could find, built a City Hall and fire barn.
 Father had all kinds of vehicles for repair. Carriages, peddler wagons, ever hearses. Father did very fine and the best work; good material. Made all the farmers’ wagons for miles around. Got $165 for a wagon without paint. That was before there were any factories in the East, but one could soon get a wagon for $65 ready for use. He had to let his men go, had little work for himself.
 I went to public school and two years to German church school. Joined German Lutheran church at 12; later was a charter member of the English Lutheran, first one in Des Moines. I had a nice young life mostly with the Germans until I met Henry Smith in about 1875. Never was in his company until a few months before we were married on July 1, 1877. I had four children: Mattie (Martha) born 1878, Carl 1879, Etta 1881, and Nora in 1882. We lived in Davenport. We moved to Nebraska in 1887; lost my Etta in 1888.
 Mattie (Martha) married Dee Erion in 1899. Carl, I think married 1901, Nora 1903. Carl and May had Dorothy. We moved on the Clark place about 1906, then on the farm at Council Bluffs in 1910. Back to Omaha in 1913. Henry was sick; we lived with Carl (Smith) for a year. Henry got worse. We moved to Bellevue in 1915. Papa got some better and lived until 1918. Nora went to O’Neill, Nebraska and taught at St. Mary’s Academy. The next year she could not get a place for us to live so I stayed with Mattie (Martha). Little Ruth was sick, Mattie was in the hospital. Ruthie left us Nov. 6, then Mary and Dan were down with scarlet fever so we could not get out for six or seven weeks. Then I went to O’Neill and kept house for Nora, then came back the next year. Have been with Mattie (Martha) since. Nora was here until 1934 when she went to New York to live.
 I have not been doing much of anything, only hand work the last four years. I have a good comfortable home. Everyone is kind to me. My only trouble is if I could only do something in return for all that has been done for me. My children and grandchildren are all kind -- do all they can. Mattie (Martha) gives me everything to make me comfortable and dear Dee has never given me a cross word. Carl (Smith) and Nora do all they can. I miss Nora. We have lived together so much she understands me best.
 I am well at 82 years. Much better than I was when younger. I am a member of the Dundee Presbyterian Church, love all the people there, love my Bellevue friends.
 I did not have anything to do today so just wanted to see how much I could remember. I hope no one will see it -- bad writing and spelling afraid.
 I love my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and my dear friends and sisters and their families. Many thanks and love to all.

JANN, Henrietta Christine (I9613)

 One of the most able barristers in Vancouver and one of the most public-spirited and progressive men in the city is Robert Wetmore Hannington, practicing at the bar of British Columbia as a member of the firm of Harris, Bull, Hannington & Mason. He was born in Dorchester, New Brunswick, May 22, 1868, and is a son of Hon. Daniel L. and Emily M. (Wetmore) Hannington, the former late premier of New Brunswick and senior judge of the supreme court of that province.
 Robert W. Hannington acquired his early education in the grammar schools of Dorchester and afterward entered the University of New Brunswick, from which he was graduated in 1888 with the degree of B. A. Having determined upon a legal career, after three years study in the office of his father, he became a student at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, attending in 1891 and 1892, and in the latter year was called to the New Brunswick bar. Shortly after he practiced at St. John for five years and in 1897 moved to Nelson, British Columbia, where until 1908 he engaged in general practice, first with S. Taylor as a member of the firm of Taylor & Hannington and later with Judge Galliher under the firm name of Galliher & Hannington. In 1908 Mr. Hannington moved to Vancouver and the firm of Russell, Russell & Hannington was formed in the city, the association continuing until 1911, when Mr. Hannington returned to Nelson. However, he remained only three months and then returning to Vancouver, aided in the organization of the present firm of Harris, Bull, Hannington & Mason. This is one of the strongest law firms in the city, all of its members being able, brilliant and resourceful men, and it is connected through an extensive and representative patronage with a great deal of notable litigation. In Vancouver Mr. Hannington is known as a strong and able practitioner, well versed in the underlying principles of law and possessing the incisive and analytical qualities of mind necessary to make his knowledge practical and effective. He has won a number of notable legal victories and has been carried forward into important relations with the public life of the city, his signal ability gaining him recognition in official circles. In 1912 he was appointed commissioner for the government to investigate the conditions existing in the Vancouver General Hospital and in the same year was appointed counsel to revise the Vancouver city by-laws. In both of these important capacities he accomplished the work in hand with thoroughness and dispatch, adding something to the respect and esteem in which his name is held in Vancouver.
 On the 16th of August, 1911, in St. John, New Brunswick, Mr. Hannington as united in marriage to Miss Louisa M. Skinner, a daughter of Robert C. and Elizabeth C. Skinner, the former for several years judge of the probate court of St. John. Mr. Hannington is a member of the Anglican church and fraternally is connected with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. He belongs to the Vancouver Club and to the Press Club in Vancouver and is well known in the affairs of the Nelson Club of Nelson. His political allegiance is given to the conservative party and while he is not an active politician he is essentially public-spirited, interested in the welfare of the city and always eager to do his utmost to promote civic growth. In a profession where advancement depends entirely upon superior merit and ability he has made steady and rapid progress and his record is a credit to the bar of British Columbia which numbers among its representatives so many able and brilliant men.

HANNINGTON, Robert Wetmore (I14005)

 Ernest Perc (EP) Crossen is the colorful and urbane patriarch of the many descendants of Thomas Crossen, Sr., who came to the Cobourg area of Ontario from Comber, County Down, Ireland, about 1830 to farm. Now retired in Washington, D.C., Perc has had a distinguished career in Canadian and U.S. Investment counselling. Although he downplays his military activity, he also served with distinction as a fighter pilot in the Royal Flying Corps in World War I and as an administrative officer of the U.S.A.F. in World War II.
 Born 18 March 1894 on a rented farm near Sonya, Ontario, Perc broke away from the Crossen family tradition of farming. Recognizing his potential and drive, the principal of Lindsay Collegiate allowed him to enter studies there although work on the 200-acre Sunderland farm of his father, Robert John Crossen, had prevented him from getting full matriculation qualifications. Perc later entered Victoria College in Toronto to study classics following some well meaning advice whose validity he soon questioned. World War I had broken out and he signed up for training as a pilot in the Royal Flying Corps, then recruiting in Canada.
 During World War I, Canadians made up about one quarter of the flying personnel of the RFC and 40 per cent of its strength on the Western Front. Like many other Canadians recruited, Perc took what little flying instruction he had in England, soloing in a fragile, kite-like Maurice Farman "Shorthorn" biplane after only four hours instruction. He crash-landed it safely, the first of several other crashes he had in the combat duties he was rushed off to in France.
 In about 300 days of action Perc Crossen is credited with shooting down three enemy planes and two observation balloons. The combat reports of his exploits are part of the official records kept by the Canadian Government. His contribution is also recorded in CANADIAN AIRMEN AND THE FIRST WORLD WAR: THE OFFICIAL HISTORY OF THE ROYAL CANADIAN AIR FORCE by S.F. Wise (Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 1981).
 On one offensive patrol, for instance, an anti-aircraft fragment pierced Perc’s wing fuel-tank and lodged in the engine. The offending piece of shrapnel is one of his many operational souvenirs, which also include a piece of fabric from the Fokker triplane flown by Captain Manfred von Richthofen, shot down by another Canadian airman after the Red Baron had downed dozens of Allied aircraft. Ironically, Perc obtained this particular "souvenir" 21 April 1918 when he had to make an emergency landing at Bertangles Aerdrome, Somme, France, and found the Fokker had crash-landed with a dead German inside just before him. This was at the time the Germans were making their big push towards the Somme near Amiens and control of the air over the battlefield was vital. After another crash landing, again luckily behind his own lines, Perc was officially reported missing, believed dead. A welcome cable, countering the first tragic news, reached his family the day after the first.
 Perc Crossen was sent to Ireland on rest leave just before the Armistice. He was only a few miles from "Crossen Hill" in Comber, County Down, where his Crossen Irish ancestors had farmed for generations. Specifically he was at an estate named Bally Edmond at Killowen and his hostess was a Lady Nugent with her family. For the young man raised on hard work on a farm in Ontario who had just gone through the hell of aerial combat of the Battle of the Somme it was veritable heaven. Perc did not know at this time it was from this area his people had emigrated to Cobourg, Ontario, in the early 1800’s to seek a better living.
 Returning to Victoria College after peace came, Perc got his B.A. in 1921, being granted a year because of was service. He then went out to Macklin, Saskatchewan, to teach in a comprehensive, one-room, country school to earn enough money to continue his education. This was accomplished by postgraduate business studies at Harvard and Columbia in the U.S.A. to get his Master’s degree from Columbia in 1925 and other qualifications leading to a Ph.D.
 Perc then taught at the Brookings State College, Brookings, South Dakota. It was there he met his wife, the former Lela Skinner, and they were married in Toronto 16 April 1928 where they lived and worked for several years. It had been on a visit to Toronto Perc saw an advertisement by the Bongard and Company for a head for their Statistics Department. Perc continued with Bongard for three and one half years, then moved to Chicago to work in the investment house of Standard and Poors. Later he became a supervisory investment counsellor with the Chicago Title & Trust Company. He retired 1 April 1959 and moved to California, first to Los Altos then to Rancho Bernardo, San Diego.
 During World War II, Perc Crossen took time out from his business career to act as chief of the foreign installations section of the U.S.A.F. in Washington, D.C, with the rank of major in the Office of the Assistant Chief of Air Staff. He was cited for commendation by Robt. A. Lovett, then Assistant Secretary of War for Air.
 Perc Crossen has one sister living, Wynn, born 28 September 1897, in Riverdale Hospital, Toronto. Three other sisters were Etta Retta (Willmot) 188?-1975), Marion Janet Crossen (1889-1980), and Pearly Juanita Crossen (1891-1974), all of Toronto, and Olive Mary (Ziegler) (1887-1977), of Kichener, Ontario. Perc’s brother, Almer Crossen (1884-1938), remained farming with their father, Robert John Crossen (1857-1938), on the family farm at Sunderland when Perc left. Robert John, who was a volunteer cafalry [sic] man in the Canadian militia, and Perc’s mother, Maria Grace, nee Buckingham (1857-1937), both staunch Presbyterians, were strong influences on Perc. Robert John, born on the family farm north of Cobourg of his father, Thomas Crossen, Jr., was the youngest son, so he left the area to settle near Sunderland after having rented and operated several farms in the district. The original Crossen farm north of Cobourg in Northumberland County purchased by Thomas Crossen, Sr., was between the 4th and 5th Concessions comprising Lot 17.
 Perc and his brother and sisters used to visit this 200-acre farm near Camborne from Sunderland by train when they were young. One feature they remembered in the stone house was a butter-making churn operated by a dog on a treadmill. Perc also remembers visiting the Cobourg home of his cousin, Albert Stott, who was a volunteer fireman. The harness of the horses which pulled the fire waggon [sic] were stored above the horses in the stalls so they could be easily put on when the alarm was sounded. Perc’s aunt, Lizzie Crossen, was extremely tall and he can recall small boys asking her how the weather was up there.
 Margaret Marie Crossen, daughter of Perc and Lee, was born 29 September 1930 in Toronto. Always interested in merchandising, she became a retail store assistant buyer for a large department store in San Francisco. Here she met and married Wallace S. Hutcheon, Jr., who is now a Commander in the U.S. Naval Reserve, Retired. Doctor Hutcheon is presently head of the Department of History at Northern Virginia Community College, Annandale, Virginia. He is author of ROBERT FULTON: PIONEER OF UNDERSEA WARFARE. Thanks to the Hutcheons, Perc and Lee Crossen have two gradndaughters [sic], Dorothy Lee, born 7 July 1964 and Hillary Ann born 14 April 1967. Dorothy is now a student at the University of Virginia and Hillary is in high school. Perc and Lee Crossen live at 9717 St. Andrew’s Drive, Fairfax, Virginia 22030, close to the grandchildren, daughter, and son-in-law, whom they see frequently.

CROSSEN, Ernest Perc (I16580)

 Capt. Evans was born in 1820, at Westcock, where the Evans family have lived since the early settlement of the country; his father being Wm. Evans, and the family homestead being the farm later owned by Mr. George Ogsett. William Evans’ father’s name was Isaac Evans: he was a native of Wales, and was for many years ferryman between Westcock and Westmorland Point, at a period before highways can be said to have existed, and when communication was more sure and speedy by boats along our shores and up and down our rivers. On a voyage to Saint John in a schooner, the vessel sank during a violent storm off Partridge Island and he with his whole crew was drowned. The brothers of Capt. Evans were James Isaac, residing at Shediac, Edwin G. living at San Jose, California, and he had one sister, the wife of Marcus Trueman, Esq. formerly of Sackville, a wealthy resident of San Jose, California.
 Capt. Evans was one of the pioneers as well as one of the best known steam-boat men in Canada. In 1856, he took command of the steamer "Westmorland" a vessel built by the late Christopher Boultenhouse of this place, for the Bay of Fundy service. Previous to this he had seen considerable service: he was first officer, in her last days of the old "Maid of Erin" whose bones lay off Grand Aunce shore. The steamer "Westmorland", after running between Saint John and Sackville for a couple of years, was transferred to the Shediac-Summerside service, where she became mail boat. Here she remained until about 1862, under command of Capt. Evans, when she was sold to the United States government as a transport to be used in the war against the Southern Confederacy. Capt. Evans then took command, first of the steamer "Princess" and then of the "St. Lawrence" of the P.E.I. Steam Navigation Company from which he retired in 1886. During his active life, Capt. Evans had been steam boating with P. E. Island developing from small beginnings, employing but one vessel, to large proportions, keeping quite a number of steam vessels busy, either for local service or for the mainland, or for distant ports -- Halifax, Boston, etc. When the steamer "Westmorland" was first employed, there were not wanting many croakers amongst the leading business men, who predicted nothing but disaster for so rash an enterprise.
 Capt. Evans was widely known and wherever known was greatly respected. He was a popular commander and no man in the business, probably, ever gained so completely the confidence of the travelling public. He conducted his hazardous business with such good judgment and such caution and care, that during the whole course of his life, he was never met with any serious accident, or with loss of life. Few men could show a more successful and honorable career. He married Mary E., daughter of the late Thomas R. Lyons of Sackville, who came from Cornwallis, N.S.

Captain Evans left a wife and family of seven daughters.
 The funeral services were performed by Rev. W. P. Hall of the Baptist Church, assisted by the Rev. Dr. Burwash, Rev. B. C. Borden and Rev. Mr. Lavers.
 Two brothers of Capt. Evans, Edwin and Henry, fought for the North in the American Civil War. The latter, Corporal Henry A. Evans died from wounds in the Military Hospital at Washington and was brought home and buried in the old cemetery at Westcock.
 Capt. Evans was a son of William Evans, who was a son of Isaac Evans. His mother was Lois Estabrooks, a daughter of William Estabrooks, who was a son of James Estabrooks (Squire Jim) the first Sackville man to become a member of the local House of Parliament.
 James Estabrooks was a son of Valentine Estabrooks who came from Rhode Island to Sackville in 1761, and his monument is the oldest standing in the old Four Corner Cemetery. He died October 23, 1770 in his 48th year.
 Both Capt. Evans’ father and mother, William Evans and Lois Estabrooks died when he was a very young man. His only son, Ernest E., died when a lad of ten years of age, and there were seven daughters: Emma (Mrs. Captain Purdy) who died in 1908; Lois A. (Mrs. W. A. Russell); Grace (Mrs. Captain Charles Moore); Minnie (Mrs. R. C. Tait) who died in 1927; Annette (Mrs. F. J. Robidoux); Margaret and Gertrude Evans. The five daughters all reside in Shediac, New Brunswick.
 Mary E. Lyons, was of United Empire Loyal descent, daughter of Thomas Ratchford Lyons, who came from Cornwallis to Sackville. Capt. David Lyons of Sackville, who died at Benin on the African coast, was a half brother. Captain James Lyons, who was killed in Saint John, by falling from his ship, was her own brother. Captain Rufus and Henry Lyons were sons of Captain David Lyons.
 Hon. Sanford Bates, Federal Commissioner of Correction for U.S.A. is a grand nephew, being a grandson of her sister, the former Lucinda Lyons of Sackville. (Source: History of Sackville, New Brunswick, by Dr. William Cochran Miller, 1846-1939). 
EVANS, Capt Evander (I15328)

Dr. Claude G. Dickey, a well known and successful physician and surgeon of Cambridge, has enjoyed a steadily growing and most lucrative practice during the five years of his residence here. His birth occurred in Corning, Adams, Iowa, on the 6th of September, 1876, his parents being Charles H. and Mercy (Sherman) Dickey, who are natives of western New York and Cleveland, Ohio, respectively. Charles H. Dickey was brought to this state by his parents when a boy, the family home being established in Delaware, where he grew to manhood. He was a student in Lennox University at the time of the outbreak of the Civil war and in 1863 enlisted for service in the Union army. When his term of enlistment had expired he returned to Iowa and eventually located in Adams, where he became identified with general agricultural pursuits. In the fall of 1883 he took up his abode at Maxwell, Story, and was there successfully engaged in merchandising for a number of years. For the past four years he has lived retired, making his home with his wife and son Claude in Cambridge. His fraternal relations are with the Masons and he is a worthy exemplar of the craft. The period of his residence in this county covers more than a quarter of a century and he enjoys a wide and favorable acquaintance within its borders.
 Claude G. Dickey was reared under the parental roof, pursuing his studies in the Maxwell high school and later at Iowa College of Grinnell, Iowa, which institution conferred upon him the degree of Bachelor of Philosophy in 1900. In the fall of that year he took up the study of medicine, entering Rush Medical College of Chicago, from which institution he was graduated in 1903. Because of his scientific course at Grinnell he had been enabled to complete four years’ work in three years and three months. Locating at Garden City, Hardin, Iowa, he there followed his profession for two years and then came to Cambridge to take the practice of Dr. M. C. Keith, who removed to Casper, Wyoming. In the intervening five years he has built up an extensive and remunerative patronage, having demonstrated his skill and ability in coping with the intricate problems which continually confront the physician in his efforts to restore health and prolong life.
 In politics Dr. Dickey is a republican, while his religious faith is indicated by his membership in the Methodist Episcopal church. Fraternally he is identified with the Yeomen, the Modern Woodmen of America and Tabernacle Lodge No. 452, A. F. & A. M., of Cambridge. He maintains the strictest conformity to the highest professional ethics and enjoys in full measure the confidence and respect of his professional brethren as well as of the general public.

DICKEY, Dr. Claude George (I12995)

The youthful but progressive young state of Wyoming is fortunate in many ways, not the least one of these being the great number of men of acknowledged and conspicuous ability who have cast in their lots with her fortunes. Each calling, profession, vocation, that has its place in the wide range of the capabilities of the state has its representative men of the most distinguished order, men of not only preeminent ability in their respective spheres of action but also possessed of sterling character, animated by high principles, considering the public good through able, well-directed personal endeavor. Among the most distinguished of the sons of the state, standing in the foremost rank of the world’s great chemists, is Frederick Salathé, Ph.D., now of Casper. Wyo., whose distinctive talents and fame are bounded by no narrow horizon, but are known and honored by the most distinguished scientists of America and Europe.
 Doctor Salathé was born at Basle, Switzerland, on May 8, 1857, the son of H. and Dorthoy (Baerwart) Salathe, also natives of Basle. They trace their Huguenot ancestry to a residence in France in the time of the Moorish wars in the years immediately antecedent to the middle of the sixteenth century, where they stood in the full splendor of the grace, courtesy and other brilliant qualities then attaching to the people of their faith, renowned alike as scholars, soldiers and lovers of country. The name was then spelled Saladdin, and the family enjoyed life in the sunny land of France until after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, when they were among the half-million of Protestants who fled to foreign countries, and locating in Basle, they soon became prominent as merchants and in civic life. The paternal grandfather was for long years the treasurer of the federal government of Switzerland, holding this office by repeated and consecutive elections until he resigned on his retirement from business. The father, also, was a successful merchant, and the originator of and the pioneer operator in the silk industry of Basle, which has attained such huge proportions and is now largely devoted to the manufacture of silk ribbons. Owing to the high reputation he had acquired as the leader in this industry and on account of his high moral character, business capacity and integrity, he was commissioned by President Grant as U. S. consul at Basle, retaining the appointment during Grant’s successive administrations. The Doctor’s maternal uncle, Edward Baerwart, was one of the leading merchants of Rio Janeiro, Brazil, during the past generation, and his extended mercantile operations (the wholesaling and importation of woolen goods) are now continued by the Doctor’s younger brother, Edward.
 Receiving his preliminary educational training in the schools of Basle, Frederick Salathé supplemented this by an attendance at and a graduation from the Basle Industrial School, thereafter pursuing a full course of three years at the Federal Polytechnic School at Zurich, being graduated there from with the highest honors and acquiring thereby the appointment of assistant director of the Chemical Technical Laboratory under, first, Prof. E. Kopp and second. Prof. George Lunge, here remaining two years, within which time he had prepared his thesis for submission to the faculty of the University of Zurich upon the derivatives of aniline, for which he received the degree of Ph. D., after this the doctor invented the process by which aniline colors and dyes are manufactured from the refuse of petroleum oils. Applying for a patent in Switzerland, he came to this country to introduce his invention, and in 1879 he had suitable chemical works for his process erected in Titusville, Pa. These proved very successful under the doctor’s supervision until the tariff on aniline products was largely reduced, the price of certain necessary imported chemicals at the same time being increased, and these changed financial conditions caused the business to become unprofitable. Doctor Salathe was then employed as chief chemist of the Tidewater Oil, with headquarters at New York City, and introduced new processes of refining mineral oils, and from there was called to California by the Union Oil, with a salary of $10,000 and an interest in the plant to erect and conduct the first oil refinery operated in that state. Three years from this time his services were obtained by an English syndicate operating in Uvalde, Tex., to erect and put in operation a large plant for the refining of a natural asphaltic product, which the doctor named litho-carbon, and from which he produced various valuable commercial substances, useful in the manufacturing of artificial rubber and insulators for electricity. Accomplishing this labor the doctor established himself in Los Angeles, Calif., devoting his especial attention to lubricating oils, paving asphalts and the installations for the use of fuel-oils in all branches of railroad work and other industries, in this connection putting in the first oil burner used in a locomotive on the Santa Fe system, this being done on the California Southern Railroad, a branch of the Santa Fe. In 1897 Doctor Salathe was called to Wyoming to conduct the refining business of the Pennsylvania Oil & Gas, and in this he is largely interested and has here introduced the latest processes for the refining of the Salt Creek oil, which he claims to be the finest natural oil of the world, his claim being supported by such eminent scientists as Redwood of London and others of equal reputation. The Doctor has also constructed the electric lighting plant of Casper and to his scientific skill the people are indebted for the excellent light they are privileged to enjoy, Mr. C. H. King being associated with him in this enterprise.
 Doctor Salathé has attained the Thirty-second degree of the Scottish Rite of Masonry, also is a Knight Templar and a member of the Royal Arcanum. In scientific circles his abilities have been acknowledged by his admission to numerous European scientific societies, general and special, being the German member of the National Chemical Society of Berlin, and he also affiliates with the American Society for the Advancement of Science.
 The marriage ceremonies uniting Doctor Salathé and Miss Antionette Michaelis were solemnized on September 16, 1886. She is a native of New York, where her father, Edward Michaelis, who was born in Hamburg, Germany, has long conducted a prominent real-estate agency. Their children are Frederick, now attending a preparatory school preliminary to entering a university; Valerie, a student of the Casper high school; Antoinette and Edward. The family is one of the most popular in the community and its home is a center of attractive hospitality. [source: “Progressive Men of Wyoming” written by A. W. Bowen in 1901 transcribed by a Friend of Free Genealogy] 
SALATHÉ, Dr. Frederick (I11258)
Warden of Prison at Waupun Will Take Place of E. A. Everett On July 1

 Henry Town, for 15 years warden of the state penitentiary at Waupun and for over 40 years engaged in charitable and penal work in Wisconsin and Michigan, was Tuesday appointed by Gov. Blaine a member of the state board of control. He takes the place of E. A. Everett, Eagle River, who has resigned to take effect July 1.
 The Senate confirmed the appointment unanimously and immediately. The term of office to which Mr. Town has been appointed is until the first Monday in February, 1925. The salary is $5,000 a year. It ss not expected that action will be taken upon the appointment by the senate for several days.
 Mr. Town is 59 years old, having been born in Cicero, N. Y. on July 5, 1861. He moved to Michigan at the age of eight. In 1881, when only 20 years of age, he entered the employ of the Michigan state penitentiary at Jackson, as a foreman of one of the workshops and remained there for two years. From the Michigan prison he went to Joliet, Ill., and was employed as a foreman of the state prison of that state for three years. He then removed to Madison, and entered the employ of the Singer Sewing Machine, being the general manager of the southern half of Wisconsin. In 1902 he was appointed warden of the state prison at Waupun and continued in that position until 1911. He was re-appointed warden in 1915 by Gov. Philipp and continued as such to date.
 As warden, directing the discipline and control of the convicts of the prison, Mr. Town has been a strict disciplinarian. Mr. Town does not believe in what he terms some of the modern coddling and advocated by many well meaning reformers. He believes it is error to make a term of penal servitude an enjoyable vacation rather than a term of punishment. Mr. Town was one of the first wardens to organize a band and orchestra and the many other entertainments and recreation privileges granted.
 “Wisconsin has waited too long for the appointment of a non-political board to conduct the affairs of the charitable and penal institutions of the state,” sais Senator Al. C. Anderson in the senate when the town confirmation came up. “The first move to place this board and this all important work upon a higher plane was taken today by the appointment of Henry Town, as a member of the state board of control.
 “The first merit of this appointment is that it marks a new and better state policy for Wisconsin. Good men and honest men have been appointed to the board of control in the past, but the appointment of Mr. Town indicates a new policy of appointing a man because of his preeminent fitness for the office. Such an appointment, without the suggestion of political interest, is truly commendable and in the years to come this new move will show its impress in better organized, better managed and more efficient charitable and penal institutions.
 “Moreover, Mr. Town has ability. If there is any class of people who need the protecting arm of the state it is the unfortunates in the institutions. I am glad today that ther will be placed on the board of control a man whose long experience will aid in bringing co-operation and efficiency to these unfortunates.

Historical Encyclopedia of Illinois and history of Ogle County, Volume II, by Horace and Rebecca Kauffman, 1909. Page 1006):
ROW, William Henry — No more earnest and enlightened exponent of twentieth century farming methods has been evolved from the experiences of the past half century in Ogle, than is found in William Henry Row, who was born in Washington, Md., August 28, 1850, and came to this part of Illinois with his parents, Joseph and Nancy Row, during the summer of 1865. Benjamin Row, the paternal uncle of William Henry, came here in 1855, and in 1870 removed to Dallas, Iowa, where he is engaged in lumber business. Joseph Row seems to have followed closely upon the fortunes of his brother Benjamin, for in 1875 he also located in Dallas, Iowa, and after many years of successful farming, is enjoying in fair health and excellent spirits the approach of his eigthy-first year. Besides his son, William H., he had a son Martin, who went in Iowa about 1876 and was killed there by the cars in 1898. His son Courtney, after losing his wife, moved too his present home in Iowa. A daughter, Mary, lived for some years in Iowa, but now makes her home in Mount Morris with her retired husband, William Marshall. Nettie Row married, first William Smith, and now is the wife of Henry Miller, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
 Like many another youth of limited resources, William Henry Row entered his preferred arena of life throuth the ante-chamber of school teaching, equipping himself therefor in the country schools and the high school at Forreston. For twelve consecutive years he taught in the winter and farmed in the summer, and September 23, 1875, was united in marriage to Alice Swingley, daugher of Benjamin Swingley, and cousin of Nathaniel Swingley, partner of Samuel Hitt. Benjamin Swingley came in 1847 with his family of four children from Washington, Maryland, locating on what since has been the swingley farm, two miles north of Mount Morris. In 1892, Mr. Swingley moved to the town of Mount Morris, where his wife died the following year, and thereafter he made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Joseph Moats, until the latter’s death four years latter. He then went to live with his daughter Ellen, wife of J. E. McCoy, and there his life came to an and September 8, 1905, at the age of eighty-nine years. He was one of the original members of the Silver Creek Brethren, and until old age laid its limitations upon him, he was an active worker and deacon in the church.
 After his marriage, Mr. Row for three years rented a part of the Reuben Marshall farm, then mad his first land purchase of forty acres in Pine Creek Mount Morris Township. This land he operated in summer teaching school in winter, and at the end of four years, in 1881, bought 120 acres a mile and a half north of Mount Morris. For this land he paid $55 an acre, which was by no means cheap, as it was flat and undrained, and far from being a model of fertility. Owing to the untiring energy and good judgment of the new owner, it was converted into an admirable property, and in 1904 it was sold for $125 per acre, a gain of seventy dollars over the original cost. Mr. Row engaged in general farming an stock-raising on a large scale, rotated his crops to insure greater fertility and energy of soil, and fed large numbers of stock each year. He was widely recognized as a farmer who kept pace with the times, and was as much in accord with scintific agriculture when he abandoned the calling as he was when starting in to carve his fortune unaided. He now is living on a place on and a half miles north of Mount Morris, where he has an ideal country home, modern in every particular, and furnished with electricity obtained from the town. He owns forty acres of splendid land, which he contemplates converting into as fine and productive property as can be found in the, and this, with a home recognized as the superior of anything thus far constructed outside of the city limits, gives him a prominent place among the most abitious and progressive landsmen of his section. He also owns a farm of 280 acres, three miles east, in Rockvale Township, now being operated by himself.
 Politically, Mr. Row is a Democrat, but he does not blindly follow the supposed leaders of his party. He was not in favor of free-silver, but stanchly defended the cause of sound money. He is not a member of any church, but is philanthropically inclined, and a generous donator to any worthy local cause. In all respects Mr. Row is a home man, devoted to his family and friends, and to the improvement of his agricultural surroundings. He has led an exceptionnaly moderate an temperate life, avoiding th temptations and excitement of office, and caring little for the diversions afforded in his wide awake and progressive community. Of his five children, Edith, formerly a teacher for four years, is the wife of Fay Coffman, of Buffalo Township ; Benjamin is operating his own farm of eighty acres in Mt. Morris Township ; and Effie, Frank and Morris are living in the paternal home.

Will from Record of Wills in Ogle, IL (27 April 1996):
William H. Row of the Village of Mount Morris County of Ogle and state of Illinois being of sound mind memory and understanding do make this my last will and testament in manner and form as follows:
 I name and appoint my son Frank O. Row and my son-in-law Alva Houpt jointly as Executors of my will and direct that they shall not be required to give bond. After paying all my just and lawful debts and my burial expenses and the expenses of adminstration said adminstrators shall make distribution of my estate as follows.
 a. To Oakwood cemetery association shall be paid the sum of three hundred dollars for the upkeep and care of my family lot therein
 b. To Plainview cemetery association shall be paid the sum of fifty dollars for the care of the graves of my wifes grandparents

Calvin Farrell – Riverway Insurance Agency in South Easton, MA is a private company categorized under Insurance. It was established in 1965 and incorporated in Massachusetts.

From Land being dedicated to Easton couple:
By Staff reports, Wicked Local Easton – 4 Oct 2010.
EASTON — The Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife will dedicate 278 acres of wilderness land in Ashby, Massachusetts to Calvin and Annette Farrell of Easton on Tuesday, Oct. 5 at the Ashfield Rod and Gun Club, 161 North St. in Plainfield.
 Calvin Farrell passed away in 2007 and left more than $300,000 to the state to purchase land to be preserved free from development.
 Farrell was an avid fisherman and outdoorsman who moved to Easton in 1968 with his wife, the former Annette Metrick, who grew up in Hyde Park. Annette Farrell passed away in 1991.
 The couple moved to Easton after they married in 1968.

From Easton couple’s bequest preserves open space.
By Paul Vogler, GateHouse News Service – 7 Oct 2010.
EASTON — The Ashfield-Hawley Wildlife Management Area was dedicated Tuesday, Oct. 5 complete with a plaque with the couple’s name at the entrance to the area and the appreciation of many of the local and state officials in attendance.
 “The gift of land or funds to protect critical habitat does more for wildlife conservation than anything else people can do,” state Department of Fish and Game commissioner Mary Griffin said.
 The Farrells moved to Easton in 1968 after they got married. In addition to building their own home on Bay Road, they always had a large garden in their backyard, according to family friend, Bill Bradley of Easton.
 Bradley said when the Farrells were building their house, Calvin made sure those clearing the land returned the topsoil for his garden. That garden had a variety of plants and seeds in it, including giant tomatoes from Russia which his wife’s parents still grow tomato plants from. Bradley also said Calvin loved to fish and would keep track of the type of fish he caught and their size to report to the state. “A lot of his spare time he spent outdoors,” Bradley said. “This is a culmination of a friend’s desire to preserve land that won’t be built on.”
 Calvin also loved to rebuild outboard motors and donated 12 motors to the Museum of Transportation in Brookline. He also donated his collection of more than 50 vintage license plates to the museum.
 Bradley said Calvin was not into computers or cable TV and preferred to correspond with letters. He sent out a yearly newsletter filling people in on what the year was like. “He was just a unique soul,” Bradley said. Annette Farrell passed away in 1991 and Calvin died in May 2007. Bradley said it took three years to see his wishes carried out and his estate administered.
 Bradley and his wife traveled out to Western Massachusetts to attend the dedication this week. Bradley said originally Farrell wanted to leave the money to the state of Maine but officials there could not guarantee what the money would be spent on. He said Massachusetts officials committed to buying land and promised the money would not be used for anything else. Farrell chose western Massachusetts because the eastern part of the state was more developed. “We were reluctant to turn money over (to the state) and leave it open ended so the state agreed to make a purchase within 18 months and they stuck to it,” Bradley said. “It’s much more than I think (Calvin) would have expected.”

Library Employee to Retire – Our dear friend and fellow employee Shirley F. Libby is retiring this June after more than thirty-four years of service with the Bangor Public Library. As our most enduring staff member, Shirley began her long tenure in the autumn of 1964, after working for Dun & Bradstreet for over eleven years. By that winter, her part time position as a Circulation staffer had shifted to include typing and other responsibilities with both the Cataloging and Reference departments.
 By 1975, Shirley was married to Lloyd A. Libby, working full time at the Library, and had moved on to become Head of both the Acquisitions and the Periodicals Departments. More than ten years later, Shirley’s two departments were folded in with Cataloging to create Technical Services. Shirley remained Head of Acquisitions, however, with the responsibilities of ordering, checking in, and processing all new Adult materials. Mending all of the Adult and Reference books has also been her responsibilty since 1991.
 “I will miss all the good people and all of the good times” says Shirley, adding that she has really enjoyed her work at the Bangor Public Library.
 Mrs. Libby, we wish you health and good fortune as you take your leave of the Library and the collection you have helped to enlarge and strengthen. Thank you for your dedication and for your absolute attention to detail. This Library and its people, patrons and staff will miss you. (source: Bangor Public Library Newsletter, May/June 1999.)

For two years subsequent, he traveled in the United States to secure relief from asthma. In 1897 he settled in Mission and now is entirely recovered from his complaint. For a time Mr. Olive wrought on a farm, coming here without capital, then opened in the hardware business where he has won a manifest success. In 1900 he was appointed postmaster. He owns considerable property as fruit farm, ditch stock, town property, and so forth, in addition to his mercantile interests. Mr. Olive also handles considerable real estate.

“Before I was born and as a small child (maybe 4, which would have been 1950) my grandmother had a flat at 110 St. and Amsterdam Avenue in NYC. She stayed there in the Winter and returned to Heatherton in the Summer. I do not know the exact dates, but I do know she was doing this before 1945. At the time, my father, Fauster and his brother Wallace both lived in NYC. Another brother, Graham lived in Albany, NY or just north of Albany in Brant Lake, NY. But, then she stopped coming to NY and we would go to Heatherton every summer to see her. She died at the Sanitarium in Kentville in March of 1961.” [Mary Ann McDonald McConnell, Dec. 2000]

From The Telegraph, 7 Jan 2012.
Adam Edwards: Life as a widower
Since the death of his wife, Adam Edwards has come to realise that a widower’s existence doesn’t have to be miserable.

 It was late last spring when my half-Russian wife Natasha died at the age of 54, after a long and debilitating illness. After a quarter of a century of marriage, I was on my own. It was not a role for which I was prepared. It was not just the grief, for which nobody can prepare, but also the readjustment to living. I was like a motorcycle that had suddenly lost its sidecar; wobbling along without a companion to help me around the corners.
 The last time I was driving solo I was living in a top-floor, one-bedroom Notting Hill Gate apartment that was so small that no matter where I was in the flat, I could reach the corded landline after just one ring. It was a bird perch; a “sock’’, as Martin Amis famously described such soulless bachelor pads, for sleeping, smooching and refuelling. Suddenly, at the age of 60, I was in a sock once more, only this time it is a modest-sized country house, a building that I had never before thought of as mine but rather as a family home owned mostly by the bank and, until this year, consisting of wife, dog, child and a ship’s container of white goods.
 Since Nat’s death, the place has subtly begun to revert to a rural version of my old bachelor flat. The dog, Zeb, a Jack Russell of uncertain pedigree, had to go if I was to build any sort of social life. He was, anyway, my wife’s tail-wagging mutt who would come to her call but not to mine and would welcome her by wriggling around on the carpet like a woolly worm. He would greet me, on the other hand, with complete indifference, which was unbecoming in a dependent animal who, in human years, was 57 years old. Nat’s death left him bereft, and a wonderful neighbour adopted him.
 My daughter Katya had left for the fleshpots of London shortly before the bereavement, and as for the white goods, I view them now as I always had, with antipathy. I dare not change the washing machine dials that are still on the setting last used by my wife, the swanky American fridge is now so over-capacitated that I have taken to using the fridge section as a wine cellar and the freezer as an ice bucket, while the cost of cooking a baked potato in the cream-coloured four-door electric Aga, which neither heats the water nor the central heating, could save the euro. The cooker was once the mother lode that fed my wife, daughter and myself. Now it only has me to service and its primary role is to cook a spud once a week. It would be cheaper to dine out at El Bulli.
 I moped about in those early months of widowhood. As a freelance journalist, it was easy to skive. I watched daytime television for the first time in my life, increased my intake of cigarettes and spent a lot of time clearing cupboards. The Polish “daily’’ said, somewhat undiplomatically, that the house needed a complete spring clean and the drone of her hoover was a tolling bell that drove me to the local wine bar, although not necessarily to drink (the doctor recently told me that my liver was “good... for Gloucestershire’’).
 By midsummer, nihilism had replaced grief and it took a rocket from my daughter, who has become something of a de facto wife, to pull me out of my self-pity. Quite soon after that, I began to realise that a widower’s life is not all gloom and domestic doom; quite the reverse, in fact.
 In the early autumn, invitations started to arrive. At first they tended to be for Sunday lunch - a feast in the Cotswolds that is as momentous as the Last Supper. Sometimes there was an awkward moment because nobody knew quite what to say other than, “I’m so sorry to hear your news.” And I, in turn, never knew exactly what to reply except “thank you’’. But after a few drinks, the stiffness disappeared. Nat was toasted and praised, her wit was celebrated and any foibles that she may have had were long forgotten.
 As I crept back into social life, I was frequently given the advice “don’t do anything for a year’’, which I had no intention of doing, and then asked the contradictory question: “Are you going to move back to London?’’
The latter was not, I think, meant rudely but rather it was a genuine inquiry. In the countryside, a single man is socially acceptable, even desirable at the occasional party, while a single woman, particularly a widow, is deemed an outcast. A host of attractive solo women have told me how lucky I am to be in my new role and how unfortunate they are. The reason for their wretched situation, they say, is that it is married women who run the social life in the shires and that they, as single women, pose a threat to the husbands.
 I am not sure that this is necessarily true, but the question about moving to London was usually followed up with the advice that I would be “mad’’ to do so as there were so many divorcées on the prowl. So far I have not been overwhelmed by rural crumpet but perhaps, because I am so out of practice, I am missing the signals.
 My friend Ricki, a single man who has been playing the field in Gloucestershire for several years, tells me that I should have an affair with a married woman to “gain some credibility” in the county - but not more than one, otherwise I will be shunned as a cad. In fact, it is only in London where I can claim so far to have been “hit on’’. And there I notice that the difference between the life of a callow bachelor in the early Eighties and an ageing widower in 2012 is that the matter of sex and whether or not it is available is brought up by the woman within the first few minutes of meeting her. In my new world, it is the women that are the aggressors. One ageing divorcée I met recently looked me up and down like a teenager ogling a stripper and commented: “nice bum’’.
 It is good to know my bottom is still the subject of approval after the fattening years of domestic bliss, but it is no substitute for my wife’s shapely behind beside me. She was there to prompt me when I forgot names, as a recipient of my moans when I had to sit next to the bore and to drive me home when I had a schooner or two too much to drink. In the country one works as a pair; every social event, with the exception of a Saturday drink at the pub, is based around couples, and to be single is to be a stray.
 There are other interesting sides to widowhood. Nat, a woman for whom politics and sport held little of interest, controlled the television remote. Since her death I have not watched a single soap opera, hospital drama or reality show. Instead I now subscribe to Sky Sports and have invested in the complete boxed sets of The West Wing. I have got rid of the dull family car, which was a four-wheel temple to health and safety, and replaced it with a two-door sporty number. And I have bought an iPod. There is no room on it for the crooning of the Rat Pack, of the Sinatras, Dean Martins and Sammy Davis Jnrs that my wife was so insistent on playing. Instead I have loaded it up with classic Sixties rock - in particular Pink Floyd, a group that had been banned in my house for a quarter of a century. Nat had only two requests before her death - the first was that the words “I’ve been to a marvellous party” should be on her headstone, and the second that Midnight Train to Georgia by Gladys Knight and the Pips should be played at her funeral. I have left that song off the iPod as I cannot listen to it without blubbing.
 Meanwhile, I no longer worry about budgeting for a family and I have changed supermarkets from Tesco and its Stalinist Club Card for the more sophisticated climes of Waitrose. My marriage was a gourmet war between my preference for red meat and my wife’s fondness for white meat, with a pasta dish as the frequent compromise. Now I pick and choose the finest grub the supermarket deli has to offer (a slice of rare beef for one, for example, is no more expensive than spag bol for three), I give the vegetable section a miss and I do not have to stand like a dunce in the cosmetics department while Nat flirts with a decision. Furthermore, there are no more squabbles over the Chinese takeaway menu - I’ll never have to eat lemon chicken again.
 Other small things have come as a pleasant surprise. Nat insisted on cut flowers in the house - something about which I thought I cared little - and could not go shopping without bunching herself. After her death, I missed the flowers and the house is now never without them. My complaints about knick-knacks cluttering up the place were also misplaced. They are, I now realise, what make a home, although I’m not sure about the ghastly Russian cup and saucer that is, according to Nat, a very valuable heirloom that I dropped 10 years ago and which ever since has sat in shattered pieces on the drawing room mantelpiece waiting to be fixed.
 Perhaps the hardest thing about my new life is to resolve it with the old, to get on with life without guilt, to do things without always wondering if Nat would approve. Dr Samuel Johnson, in a letter to a friend about the state of widowhood, wrote: “The continuity of being is lacerated; the settled course of sentiment and action is stopped; and life stands suspended and motionless, till it is driven into a new channel.’’
 As the black clouds of despondency skid over me less frequently, a new channel is slowly emerging. But I know that it will take more time; probably much more time than I thought, as it is a racing certainty that Nat will continue to haunt me until I mend that damn Russian cup and saucer.

Adele Mandellaub (born August 10, 1893 in Kolomea ; † October 31, 1941 in the Belzec extermination camp) was the wife of the businessman Simon Mandellaub. She lived in Heilbronn from around 1912 and had Austrian citizenship at that time. In 1918 the entire family, who lived at first at Turmstrasse 14, later at Gartenstrasse 32 and from 1936 at Sicherheitserstrasse 9, became Polish. In 1933 Adele and Simon Mandellaub, who ran two shoe stores, had to sell their house at Kirchbrunnenstrasse 12. In the course of the “Poland Action” in October 1938, Adele and Simon Mandellaub were deported together with their nine-year-old daughter Silvia, whereas the older children Gisela, Markus and Eugen managed to emigrate to Palestine in March 1938. Adele Mandellaub and her husband arrived with their youngest daughter in their native Kolomea, although they had been deported via Bentschen. Allegedly, Adele Mandellaub returned to Heilbronn three months later to take care of the furniture she had stored. In August 1941 the German Wehrmacht set up a ghetto in Kolomea. Like her husband and daughter, Adele Mandellaub was deported from there to the Belzec extermination camp. The officially determined date of death is October 31, 1941. (Source

From Nazi Medicine and the Nuremberg Trials, by Paul Julian Weindling (p. 160): “[...] The mounting piles of documents necessitated establishing procedures for their consultation so that nothing shoud go astray and alos to prevent deliberate destruction of evidence. The IMT prosecution had in fact lost the one surviving copy of the vital Wannsee Conference minutes (it was rediscovered in March 1947). Fortunately, all trial documents had been duplicated en masse. The defence was provided with a reading room. A small industry supported translation and duplication of the documents.
 The Court established an archive on 21 February 1947, keeping track of original documents under conditions of high security. The archivist, Barbara Skinner Mandelaub, serviced the prosecution and defence, maintaining a definitive set of trial transcripts. The staff was subject to a rigorous efficiency rating to maintain output and quality of work. A requirement for an archives assistant was meticulous presentation and order, as These elements a of importance in prepration or records such as indexing, cataloguing and classifying of material which is to be of permanent value for legal an historical reference for generations to come. Mandelaub increased the security and made sure that only archives staff retrieved or filed records, and the archives issued certified copies rather than originals so that nothing could be lost or destroyed. The Trial Documents achieved what amounted to sacrosanct status, once they had gone through the stages of authentication and been presented to the Court, where their authenticity could be challenged. Culprits were to be convicted by the masses of paperwork that the desk-bound killers had generated.”

MARRIAGE#2: MARRIAGE OF PROMINENT YOUNG PEOPLE: Mr. Thos H. ROBERTSON and Miss Hannah HOLLAND were united in the bonds of holy wedlock at the home of his bride, two and one-half miles SE of town, at 4:00 this afternoon, Squire M. S. HOLLOWAY officiating. A number of relatives and friends of the contracting parties were present to witness the ceremony joining these to young people together for life. The groom is only 63 years of age, while his bride has gathered the fragrant flowers of 50-odd summers. Mrs. ROBERTSON is a sister to Mrs. T.B. HOLLAWAY, of this city. We hasten to extend congratulations.

OBIT: T. H. ROBINSON; T. H. ROBINSON died at his home, four miles from Spring City Tennesse, 4 Dec 1914,aged 72 years. Mr. ROBINSON has been afflicted for some time with that dreadful malady, dropsy. He had twice been married; his first wife was Sarah BURNETT, formerly Sarah BRYSON. who preceded him to the grave by several years. He then married Miss HOLLAND, who survives him. In the eaarly sixties Comrade ROBINSON cast his lot with the Confederacy, and became a member of Captain Burton Leuty’s company in the First Tennessee Calvary snd served four years. He was a splendid soldier, always ready for the call of duty, and it can be truly said of him, that he never missed an opportunity to do effective service for the Southland when presented. He was always present and ready for duty when called, and was true to principle as the needle to the pole, and perhaps no man in the Confederate service undertook more difficult tasks or was more willing to brave danger than he. In fact, he did not seem to realize what the word fear meant. I could mention many instances of his daring rides and heroic escapades of which he, in his life time was too modest to speak, but it is suffcient to say that he was a fine soldier, a splendid citizen, a good neighbor, a loving husband, and we all shall miss him.

Born in 1934, Vernon P. Woodward was an Episcopal priest at Church of the Advent in Cincinnati, Ohio when he was arrested for his participation in the Prayer Pilgrimage Freedom Ride in 1961. As part of the pilgrimage, Woodward, along with fourteen other Episcopal clergymen, traveled from New Orleans, Louisiana to Jackson, Mississippi where he and the others were arrested in the Trailways terminal on 13 September 1961.

Cincinnatian 1 Of 15 Pastors Freed In South
Rev. Vernon P. Woodward of Cincinnati was among 15 Episcopal ministers who were freed of breach-of-the-peace charges yesterday in Jackson, Miss. The bi-raclal group of ministers had been fined and sentenced to four-month jail terms after attempting to desegregate a bus station restaurant last fall. The group, which Included a son-in-law of New York’s Gov. Nelson Rockefeller, had spent only a few days in jail following arrest. Rev. Mr. woodward resigned as curate at the Church of the Advent, Walnut Hills, last September to join the pilgrimage which landed him in jail. Charges were dropped against the ministers “out of respect and admiration for the Episcopal Church and the Mississippi Episcopal churchmen,” according to the prosecution in Jackson. (Source: The Cincinnati Enquirer, April 10, 1962.)

Born in Chicago, Fran Larsen grew up on the south end of Lake Michigan where she learned about the “construction” of the land from an uncle who was a glacial geologist. She also drew at an early age, encouraged by her grandmother who displayed her drawings. After graduating magna cum laude with a BA from Michigan State University, she studied at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts and at Hope College, Holland, MI. In 1980, she moved to New Mexico.
 Larsen’s paintings reflect her response to New Mexico’s "geological grandeur and vibrant cultures.Paintings are not windows onto the world, they are reflections of who you are. That’s why I started carving and painting my frames". Her frames are inspired by travel in Mexico and by the carved and painted vigas in the NM Art Museum’s St. Francis Auditorium. She designs and carves each frame to complement the painting it surrounds, and to reassert that the painting is an object — what she calls self talk, or an intensely personal dialogue between what she sees and what she feels—not a representation of the buildings and landscapes in them. Larsen is represented by Manitou Gallery, Santa Fe.

Remarks by Captain Courtney Sugai
U.S. Army
May 31, 2005.

It is an honor to be here at the Vietnam Women’s Memorial to pay my respects to the veterans of past and present wars. It is an honor to be in the presence of brave men and women who have fought for our country and our way of life.

I grew up on the island of Kaua’i in a close knit family. My family was what we in Hawaii call a "mixed-plate," with ancestral ties to Ancient Hawaii, China, England, Germany, and the mid-western United States. As a child, I learned early on that I was the product of generations of migrants who had come from all over the world. How do you define such a variety of backgrounds coming together? Our pot pourri of culture could be summed up in one word, "American."

I never really thought about it as a child or even as a young adult. I had loving parents and grandparents, I lived on a beautiful island where everyone in the community was like family. I was free, and I was safe. I never thought that what I had was anything special, and I never feared that it could be taken away. I took it for granted.
For my whole life, I was told that I was lucky to be an American and to live in a free country. I was told that freedom wasn’t free, and that my grandfathers on both sides had fought in World War II and my father in Vietnam. All to give me a good life. To give me a good life, I thought? To give me freedom? These ideas were abstract, and I never came to understand them until years later.

My father believed that everyone should serve. Whether it was military service, the Peace Corps, or public service, somehow, you would give something back. My father also told me that women from Kaua’i were known for being tough and had been strong warriors in the days of ancient Hawai‘i. So, as a freshman in college, I asked myself, how was I going to give serve. I enrolled in Army ROTC. Although my husband, brother, father, and grandfathers had all been in the military, I did not grow up in a military atmosphere. I did not watch war movies, and I was not interested in reading about them. At the time, I made a living dancing the hula on a dinner cruise for tourists. The military life was not something that came naturally. How in the world was I going to be an officer? I never really planned on staying in ROTC. I was going to try it, I probably wouldn’t like it, and I would most likely drop out after one semester.

Then, I met a woman named Major Kathy Schlimm. MAJ Schlimm had all the qualities of a true leader. She was tough, smart, and dedicated to her cadets and the Army. She managed to balance her professional life as a soldier with marriage and motherhood. She was like a mother to her cadets, the kind of mother that teaches you right from wrong, picks you up when you fall, and beams with pride when you succeed. She dedicated herself to the profession of arms and to training the future leaders of the Army. She didn’t do it for the money. And, she did not do it for recognition. She did it because she loved soldiers and she loved her country.

So, when the opportunity to drop out of ROTC came, I did not. I stayed in, got knee deep in Army training. I was afraid that I would not amount to much as a soldier. But, I had to try my best. There were so many opportunities out there for me, opportunities that were not there for my mother and grandmothers. The women who served in Vietnam were so much braver than I was. The decision to join the Army and go to Vietnam were choices that women of that era did not have to make. When it would have been completely acceptable to stay home where it was safe, they chose to do something that was larger than themselves, and go to war. Women were fighting for rights at home in America, and yet these courageous women, took an extra step, and went to Vietnam. The men and women who went to Vietnam fulfilled an obligation to serve our country to advance the cause of freedom. Yet, so much of what they did was unappreciated, and so many of them were condemned by fellow Americans.

So, why did they go to war? The reasons for going to war are not easily defined. If I were asked why I went to war, I would answer: I chose the profession of arms because I love my country. The decision to go to war was made. I am a soldier, and I will willingly do my duty. I don’t mean to imply that my response was robotic. I want to believe that I went for the right reasons. And now that I have served in Afghanistan and Iraq, I know that I helped advance the cause of freedom. I saw people there who were so desperate to have just a little piece of what we have. Men would stand in line for days at the front gate of our base camp, just for the chance to earn four dollars, a meal, and a bottle of clean water for a full days work. The majority of the people I met were seeking what I always thought of as the simple things in life. Now, the people of Iraq and Afghanistan have the right to vote, the right to pursue an education, and freedom to practice their religion.

The soldiers who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan sacrificed their lives to give others freedom. These brave soldiers come from all branches of the military and perform various duties. Brave soldiers, like my cousin, Infantry Platoon Leader, First Lieutenant Nainoa Hoe, and my friends, Maintenance Officer, Captain Pierre Piche, blackhawk pilot Second Lieutenant Jeremy Wolfe, and the Sergeant First Class Kelly Bolor, our Laundry and Bath Platoon Sergeant. Now, my husband and I are both home from the war, and my brother and brother-in-law are serving in the Middle East. When I think of all them, the soldiers who have died, and those who continue the fight, I am comforted to know that the people of Afghanistan and Iraq are beginning to taste the fruits of freedom.

So, when I think back to my childhood, and my parents telling me that my freedom did not come without sacrifice, I can truly say that I understand. I am so grateful to all who have served so that I can be free, and I hope that by serving in the Army, I can someday be worthy of their sacrifice.

CLOPPER, HENRY GEORGE, office holder, banker, and magistrate; b. 25 April 1792 in Kingsclear Parish, N.B., son of Garret Clopper and Penelope Miller; m. 9 Feb. 1820 Mary Ann Ketchum in Woodstock, N.B., and they had two daughters; d. 4 Nov. 1838 in Fredericton.

Henry George Clopper’s father was a New York loyalist of Dutch descent who had served with the provincial forces during the American revolution and who held minor civil offices in New Brunswick; his mother’s family were genteel Massachusetts loyalists, with a connection to the family of Edward Winslow*. After attending Fredericton Academy and serving some time as an apprentice to a Halifax merchant, Henry became a clerk in the commissariat department at Fort Cumberland (near Sackville, N.B.) in 1813. He worked for the commissariat in various places at least until 1818, being for a time in charge of the depot at Presque Isle. That he remained in employment when military establishments were reduced after the War of 1812 may have been in part due to the influence of his mother’s brother-in-law, Harris William Hailes, administrator of New Brunswick in 1816–17 and afterwards aide-de-camp to Lieutenant Governor George Stracey Smyth*.

Clopper was appointed in February 1821 to succeed his father as registrar of deeds and wills for York County. On his father’s death in July 1823 he also replaced him in the offices of sergeant-at-arms of the House of Assembly and county clerk. Small official plums would continue to come his way, among them the post of sub-collector of customs for Fredericton in 1831. Late in 1837 he gave up the office of county clerk, whose duties included that of acting as prosecutor, and became a justice of the peace and a judge of the Inferior Court of Common Pleas. There were few community endeavours in which Clopper was not involved. In 1822 he was one of the commissioners for erecting an almshouse and workhouse in Fredericton and he served on its board for many years. He was also clerk of the vestry of the parish church, first secretary of the Fredericton Savings Bank when it was founded in 1824, and secretary and treasurer of the Fredericton Library. In 1825 he became a founding member of the Central Committee of Relief for the Miramichi Fire, and the following year he was made one of the commissioners for the allocation of the funds it collected.

A significant event in Clopper’s public career was his participation in the census of 1824. Not only was he responsible, as county clerk, for coordinating the census in York, but he was chosen by the provincial secretary, William Franklin Odell, to compile the total returns for the colony and to report to the assembly. Census takers, who were selected by the justices of the peace, recorded population numbers by sex, colour, and age (above or under 16 years), as well as numbers of families, occupied and unoccupied houses, and new houses being built. Unfortunately, the accuracy of the figures for the colony that Clopper compiled was compromised by a few late returns from remote areas and by the failure of two counties to assess the numbers employed in lumbering operations. In 1825 Archdeacon George Best* estimated the population to be 79,176, or 5,000 more than the figure shown in the assembly’s published report.

In 1834 Clopper became the first president of the Central Bank of New Brunswick, located in Fredericton. It was incorporated that year by a legislature which had recently shown itself entirely unreceptive to efforts of a group of Saint John merchants to launch a second bank in that city [see John McNeil Wilmot]. The ease with which the Central Bank’s promoters received legislative sanction was likely owing to the fact that their institution, by virtue of its location and its modest size (the initial authorized capital being only £15,000), posed no threat to the virtual monopoly of the Bank of New Brunswick, founded in Saint John in 1820. It may have helped that Charles Simonds*, an important figure in the Bank of New Brunswick and one of the most powerful politicians in the province, was Clopper’s brother-in-law. Clopper’s involvement with the Central Bank led to an association with other business enterprises; one was the Nashwaak Mill and Manufacturing Company, of which he became a director, along with James Taylor* and others, in 1836.

Clopper was an obstinate man who appears to have been lacking in warmth and generosity. A dispute with a maternal uncle over the sum of £35 disrupted the family in 1830. It also involved Clopper in a confrontation with lawyer George Frederick Street*, and in 1834 the public was treated to an exchange of incivilities in the correspondence columns of the New-Brunswick Courier between these two scions of the loyalist aristocracy. Clopper was nevertheless a man of significant abilities. When he died the Royal Gazette’s obituary referred to the “clear and powerful intellect” that had “enabled him to undertake and to perform duties of such varied kind and character, as will render it a matter of extreme difficulty to supply his place in this community.” Years afterwards the People’s Bank of New Brunswick honoured him by placing his portrait on its five-dollar notes. Since he had had no sons and his only brother had died in 1819, the Clopper name continued to be known in New Brunswick chiefly through the career of his wife’s nephew Henry George Clopper Ketchum*.

David Ben Shalom [known as "Honzo", born Jan Baeck]
Birth: Ostrava, Czechoslovakia (1912)
Death: Kibbutz Givat Chaim, Israel (1900)

Israeli puppeteer. David Ben Shalom (born Jan Baeck and better known as Honzo) emigrated from Czechoslovakia when he was 22 to Palestine in 1934, and settled in Kibbutz Givat Chaim (Haim). He created his puppet theatre, the Bubatron (Doll’s Theatre), doing children’s puppetry and workshops for children. After his first show in 1935, Ben Shalom began travelling the country. The character of the girl Ziva – “buba ziva” – represented the Jewish settlers of the land. For fifty years, he invented complex new techniques for his string puppets, and created numerous performances (folk tales, stories of Kibbutz life) influenced mostly by the puppetry tradition of Central Europe. In 1947, Ben Shalom was sent to Germany to work with refugees and, later, invited to London by UNIMA. In 1966, the Bubatron was invited to perform at the National Theatre Habima. Though he worked mostly with string figures, in the 1980s he experimented with rod puppetry.

In 1977-1979, Ben Shalom taught puppet theatre in the Theatre Department at Tel Aviv University and actively participated in the programme of Gathering of Young Jews. In 1976, his theatre gave rise to a children’s television series. In 1984, David Ben Shalom was made a Member of Honour of UNIMA. He has written a practical book on puppetry and a book on his theatre, Bubatron Guide (1986; Madrikh le-bubatron, translated into English as Manual of Puppetry), written in Hebrew, English and Arabic. The artist donated most of his puppets to Tel Aviv University.

Sen. Scott’s Secretary Is Actress
By John Koenig Jr. – Associated Press Special Service

WASHINGTON (AP) — Many of Washington’s government girls aspire to the theater but seldom does one come from New York’s Broadway to Washington. But Miss Edith Skinner, executive secretary to Sen. Hugh Scott, R-Pa., followed that route.
 “Edie”, as she is known to friends, family and colleagues at the capitol, appeared in summer stock and little theaters before having her bing fling at a Broadway role. “I was working to become Broadway’s best character actress,” pretty, brown-eyed Miss Skinner says.
 Her big chance came with the play, “Ivy Green”, a dramatized life of Charles Dickens. Miss Skinner had hopes of getting a starring role. She did win a spot as understudy to the star but the play lasted only a few weeks on Broadway.
 This was 1952, the year of Dwight D. Eisenhower’s first presidential campaign. One day Miss Skinner strolled into the Citizens for Eisenhower headquarters in New York. She was promptly drafted for a new role — not in the theater, but working for Eisenhower for President.
 Here she first met Scott. then a member of the House. And Scott. active himself in the Eisenhower campaign, was appreciative of the work done by Miss Skinner. Came election day and the end of Miss Skinner’s campaign work. “What are you going to do now?” she was asked by Scott. “I have always wanted to visit Paris. So I’ve decided to take a job over there for two years,” the actress-campaigner replied. “Don’t do it.” said Scott. “We want you in Washington.”
The upshot was that Miss Skinner was offered a post she couldn’t resist – secretary to Scott in his then House office. His former secretary had resigned.
 Scott subsequently won election to the Senate and Miss Skinner continued as his aide. She has no regrets now about leaving the theater. “After all,” she said, “politics is about the closest thing you can get to the stage.” (source: The Evening Standard, 29 Sept. 1960).

 Eddy Gilmore married three times. His first wife was Barbara. In 1938 he married my mother, Margaret Cook, born 1910 and still going strong. I was born in 1940 when my parents lived in Washington DC. Eddy went to Russia, divorced my mother, and married Tamarra in 43. He died in London in 1957. I met him three times.
 I’ve just asked my mother what if anything she remembered Eddy saying about Barbara. Her only story is that she didn’t know that he was married before, until he told her, bursting into tears, on their wedding night. I seem to remember her telling me or reading somewhere that Eddy and Barbara went to college together. He went to Carnegie Tech.

English translation of an article originally written in polish : Żydzi z Freiburga na Śląsku (15 marca 2021) by Jacek Ziaja (Świebodzice)

Jews from Freiburg in Silesia

 This article is a clipped attempt to approach the issue from the perspective and on the example of the fate of one Jewish family (Wolff) from pre-war Freiburg in Silesia. In addition, let the picture shown below be a supplement to the valuable item written by Dr. A. Gruzlewska (Jews of the Province, 1812-1945) from Dzierżoniów, and at the same time a short genealogical journey into the interesting and not fully recognized history of the local community of the Mosaic faith (Jewish community) and the subsequent fate of its members.

Ad vocem of a letter from Israel to the mayor of Swiebodzice dated August 8, 1998.
 It all started with the beginning of August 1998. At that time an extremely interesting letter from... Israel arrived at the address of the Świebodzice magistrate. A Polish translation of this letter written in the original, interestingly in German, was published 4 years later in the pages of the monthly magazine Świebodzice. History of the City in No. 9 (59) of September 2002.
 The author of the letter turned out to be Mrs. Ulla (Ursula, Geula) Schkedi [a.k.a. Shkedi], née Wolff, who had been living since 1938, originally in the British Mandate Area of Palestine, and since May 1948 in the newly established Jewish state of Israel. She was born on February 1, 1921 in Świebodzice (Freiburg in Schlesien). It is noteworthy that she was one of the last people born in pre-war Świebodzice of the Jewish faith.
 She specifically mentioned in her letter the heavily neglected cemetery, located at 17 Waldenburger Straβe (until 1945 Waldenburger Straβe or Waldenburger Chaussée 17), where her father, a merchant by trade and owner of a small clothing store, Philipp Wolff (born 28 May 1875, died 14 Jan 1938, Freiburg in Schlesien).
 Further on, the letter’s author also mentioned her mother (Jenny Sara Wolff, née Pincus or Pinkus), who lived virtually undisturbed in her house at what was then Nikolaistraβe 5 (Mikołaja Street 5) in Świebodzice until 1942, when she was stripped of her property by the German authorities.
 The clues left in the 1998 letter made it possible, after more than twenty years, to revive the topic and attempt to make new findings regarding the fate of the Wolff family, members of the local community, as well as the Jewish community, residents of the city before 1945.

Philipp Wolff (1875-1938)
 The learned and practiced profession of the head of the family was merchant (Kaufmann). Well, the senior Wolff specialized in trade. He ran a small textile and fabric store (women’s, men’s and children’s confections) at Nikolaistraβe 5 (formerly Friedenstraβe, now Nicolaus Copernicus Street 5). The Wolff family lived at the same address, one floor above the store.
 All would perhaps have been calm and well, and the whole story probably wouldn’t even have happened, had it not been for the rising tide of social discontent in Germany, and the assumption of the office of chancellor by Austrian corporal (gefrajter), World War I veteran, Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) in January 1933. A figure that forever changed not so much the course of German history, but that of Europe and the world, which on a micro-scale destroyed the lives and health of many millions of lives, including those of Jews, and did not spare the citizens of the German Reich of the Jewish faith.
 Beginning in 1931, the number of Świebodzice Jews began a gradual decline, although the beginning of this phenomenon had its origins even before World War I. The downward trend deepened over the course of the 1930s, to reach, according to the last reliable statistics from the Reich census of May 17, 1939, before the outbreak of World War II (September 1, 1939), a limit of only 16 people, i.e. exactly five families (5 men and 11 women).
 At the time, Philipp Wolff had been dead for just over a year. He passed away on January 14, 1938, in Świebodzice (Freiburg in Schlesien) at the age of 63, before the hell of the already pervasive anti-Semitic campaign throughout the Reich was unleashed for good. He was laid to rest in the local small Jewish cemetery (kirkut) that had existed since 1848 at what was then Waldenburger Straβe or otherwise Waldenburger Chaussee 17 (now 17 Walbrzyska Street).
 The funeral took place three days later on January 17, 1938, and was the last burial already after the formal dissolution of the Jewish community in Świebodzice (Die Jüdische Gemeinde Freiburg in Schlesien) on October 1, 1936. Left behind was his widow, then 54 years old, Jenny Sara Wolff, née Pincus or Pinkus, and two daughters, an older one (age 17) named Ursula (Ulla) and a younger one (age 12), named Ruth Anne-Marie. The mother and her daughters, lived in a small corner tenement at Nikolaistraβe 5, owned by the family along with a clothing store located on the first floor.

Jenny Sara Wolff, née Pincus or Pinkus (1884-1945?)
 Well, in the course of the search, it turned out that it was possible to determine more precisely the mother of the author of the 1998 letter. She was the previously mentioned Jenny Sara Wolff, née Pincus or Pinkus. She was born on December 11, 1884 in Wronki on the Warta River (Wronke an der Warthe). At the time, the town was located in the Szamotuły district (Kreis Samter) in the Poznań regency (Regierungsbezirk Posen) of the former Grand Duchy of Posen (Groβherzogtum Posen), Prussian partition.
 Wronki (German: Wronke) was located in the territory of the then Prussian partition (Greater Poland), where at least from the first half of the 17th century there was a Jewish community with its own synagogue, ritual slaughterhouse and cemetery (kirkut). At the end of the 18th century, 382 Jews resided there.
 How did she get from Greater Poland (Prussian partition) to Świebodzice in Lower Silesia ? Under what circumstances did she meet her future husband and the father of their daughters ? The questions remain, for the time being, unanswered due to the lack of disclosed accounts of witnesses or surviving members of the extended family, as well as friends, acquaintances, etc., from the wartime conflagration. Migration was facilitated by the common denominator of the two provinces, that is, firstly the fact that they remained within the borders of the Reich (close proximity, relatively short distance), and secondly the German language space. The fate of the family in the interwar period, apart from the business activities described earlier, remains more closely unknown.
 Already a widow, in 1942 she found herself on a list of Jews whose property the German authorities had earmarked for confiscation, the carrying out of which in Lower Silesia (Niederschlesien) was directly handled by the Lower Silesian Provincial Tax Office, with its headquarters in the provincial capital, Breslau (Wrocław).
 In the same year, 1942, she was on another list, this time a list of Jews designated for liquidation (extermination), where it was noted: [...] zuletzt wohnhaft in Freiburg/Schlesien Landeshuterstr. 13 [...] (pol. last resided in Świebodzice/Silesia 13 Kamiennogórska St. [Today, the aforementioned street is named after Henryk Sienkiewicz. There is still a separate Kamiennogórska Street in the city, where a new municipal cemetery has been located since 1994 - author’s note]). Also on the same list was Gertrud Sara Horn, born on January 27, 1881 in Świebodzice (Freiburg in Schlesien), and living there in a tenement at Landeshuter Straβe 13 (list from 1942-1944).
 Despite the fact that she was added to the Wrocław list of Jews destined for export to the Lublin ghetto and subjected to further extermination there, she was not disturbed and continued to live in her hometown. In 1942-1945 she even shared an apartment with Gertrud Sara Horn, a seamstress (Schneiderin), by then already the widow (German: Witwe) of a textile and fabric merchant, owner of a small clothing store and once also a member of the local Jewish community board (Markus Horn), living in an apartment building at Landeshuter Straβe at No. 13 (now Henryka Sienkiewicza Street). This state of affairs continued until January 1945, according to correspondence sent in 1998. According to her daughter’s account, she was then most likely arrested and taken to Breslau (German: Breslau), where she was murdered (?).
 A different version is described by another author of memoirs (Jochen Heidrich from Germany; his aunt was the aforementioned Gertrud Sara Horn) published 13 years later in Schlesisches Gottesfreundw August 2011. He claimed in his article that Jenny Sara Wolff remained in the city and was the last Jewish citizen of the city to survive until liberation by Red Army troops on May 8, 1945, and her further fate remains unknown to this day.

Izchak Shkedi or Schkedi (1922–2010)
 His actual name was Eugen Mandellaub. He was born on June 1, 1922 in the German town of Heilbronn located on the Neckar River (Heilbronn am Neckar) into the family of a Jewish merchant (German: Kaufmann), who came from Kolomyia in the former Austrian partition (now Ukraine). Eugen’s father emigrated to the German Reich before World War I (1914-1918) around 1912. In 1937 he began agricultural training, which he most likely did not complete. Well, in March 1938, as a result of the growing repression of the Jewish population by the Nazi authorities, he irretrievably left the territory of the Third German Reich with his older siblings, his sister (Gisela) and brother (Max Markus). The surviving siblings left for Palestine, which was then a British mandate territory in the Middle East.
 The parents, Simon and Adele (née Grünstein) and Eugen’s youngest sister (Sylvia) unfortunately did not escape repression and, worst of all, death. On October 31, 1941 (the official date of death), they were all exterminated in Belzec, a German extermination camp, although formally established on November 1, 1941 (after the Reich’s invasion of the USSR in June of that year) on the territory of occupied Poland (General Government).
 Between 1938 and 1940 he was in a youth group in Tel-Chai. There he soon met and married Ulla (Ursula), née Wolff. It is likely that in 1940-1943 he received military training already in Palestinian territory. Later, from 1943-1956, he was a member of the border kibbutz Menara. In the summer (June 12) of 1947, he was naturalized and given a new identity. From then on he was listed in documents as Izchak Shkedi [or Schkedi]. During the First Israeli-Arab War (1948-1949), when Menara was cut off by Arab coalition forces, he was in charge of evacuating the children there. In 1956, he joined kibbutz Givad Chaim Ichud (Givat Haim Ihud), founded in 1952, where he was a tractor operator. He managed the nut plant continuously for the next 17 years. He also ran a repair shop. As a hobby, he was involved in breeding a miniature schnauzer (dog breed) named Bar-Luz (black and silver miniature).
 According to the author’s private findings, Eugen Mandellaub a.k.a. Izchak Shkedi died a natural death on October 23, 2010, having lived to the age of 88 in kibbutz Givad Chaim Ichud (Givat Haim Ihud), where he had lived and worked since 1956. He was laid to rest in the local cemetery next to his wife.

Children and grandchildren of Mr. and Mrs. Shkedi
 The letter also mentioned Mr. and Mrs. Shkedi’s (aka Schkedi) three sons and as many as eight grandchildren. All are alive and living in Israel.
 The author of the August 1998 letter to the city authorities, a pre-war resident of Swiebodzice (German: Freiburg in Schlesien until May 1945), Ulla [Ursula] Shkedi [aka Schkedi] née Wolff died eight years later on June 5, 2006 at the age of 85. She left a husband and three adult sons.

To the Mayor of
the City of Świebodzice / Poland / Silesia

Dear Mr. Mayor.

After 60 years I saw your city. I was born here in 1921. My name: Urszula Schkedi (née Wolff), I am of Jewish faith. I moved to Israel in 1938, where I live with my family – my husband, three sons and eight grandchildren.

My husband and our older son filmed and photographed the town during their stay in Swiebodzice. I was impressed by how much has been accomplished and how the city has developed.

Swiebodzice is a very beautiful, clean and smug city. Only horrible, shocking was the sight of a small, neglected Jewish cemetery. Although the grave of my late father is located, however, the graves are dilapidated and dug up. Perhaps there is an opportunity to clean up the grave and make a small inscription: Philipp Wolff born 28.05.1875 died 14.01.1938.

My mother Jenny Wollf, née Pincus, was in Świebodzice until January 1945 in her house at 5 Nikolaistraβe Street [German: Nikolaistraβe 5 – author’s note] from where she was later evicted to a small mansard apartment [a kind of living space in the attic floor – author’s note] at Packhofgasse [now Juliusz Słowacki Street – author’s note]. Is there still a house at 5 Mikołaja St., the property of my parents?

My mother disappeared after January 1945 and was probably murdered by the Nazis in Breslau.

I am writing this letter in German, as I do not speak Polish. I hope that you have the opportunity to translate it.

I would be happy to receive a reply from you.

Ulla Schkedi.

ESSEX FELLS, April 15 2015 — An elderly man was found murdered in home in Essex Fells, New Jersey. Forensics personnel from the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office have been actively investigating the victim’s home at 238 Fells Road. Robert Foster Nevius, 91, was found murdered in his own home. Nevius, known as ’Foster’, was a WWII veteran, who survived the allied invasion of Normandy.
 Sources say it was his wife, Janet who called 911 from the couple’s Manhattan apartment after she had been unable to reach him on Thursday morning. Officers from the Essex Fells Police Department arrived to investigate and discovered the body. It is not immediately clear whether the victim was a random target, or whether he was murdered by someone he knew. The prosecutor’s office says there does not appear to be any forced entry. Nevius was home alone at the time, officials said. They want people in the area to be vigilant and if they see anything suspicious to call Essex Fells Police. How the victim died has not been released. An autopsy was scheduled.
 Nevius is survived by his wife and two daughters.

François Roger, auteur dramatique et poète est né à Langres, le 17 avril 1776.
 À l’âge de 16 ans il fit et chanta des chansons qui amenèrent, pendant dix-sept mois, son incarcération et celle de sa famille. Fonctionnaire, il entra dans l’Université et publia des ouvrages de littérature scolaire ; il fut député sous l’Empire et la Restauration. Journaliste, poète et auteur dramatique, son chef-d’œuvre est une comédie en vers, en trois actes, L’Avocat
 Il fut élu à l’Académie le 28 août 1817 en remplacement de Suard, et reçu par le duc de Lévis le 30 novembre suivant. Son élection fut très critiquée. Il fit partie de la commission du Dictionnaire. Il combattit la proposition Lacretelle, reçut Villemain et le comte de Sainte-Aulaire et vota contre Victor Hugo. Il avait été l’un des compagnons du « Déjeuner de la Fourchette ».
 Il est mort le 1er mars 1842.

 François Roger voit le jour à Langres (Haute Marne), le 17 avril 1776. Fils de Didier Roger, receveur des décimes du diocèse de Langres, et Marie Joly, il commence ses études au collège de sa ville natale et les termine à Paris. De retour à Langres, il se compromet en composant des chansons contre-révolutionnaires. On l’emprisonne avec sa famille sous la Terreur, puis on le remet en liberté, après 17 mois de détention.
 Il revient étudier le droit à Paris, sous la direction de son oncle, Joly, ex-avocat au parlement. Mais il délaisse bientôt la procédure pour s’adonner à la littérature. Il devient attaché au ministère de l’Intérieur et est destitué, le 22 juin 1798, pour avoir lu en séance publique à l’Athénée une traduction en vers d’un fragment des Annales de Tacite, qui s’applique trop directement aux événements du jour.
 Réintégré dans ses fonctions l’année suivante par la protection de Maret, il est successivement secrétaire de François de Nantes, chef de la correspondance et du contentieux à l’administration générale des droits réunis, conseiller général de la Haute-Marne. Il est choisi, le 18 février 1807, par le Sénat conservateur, comme député de son département au Corps législatif.
 Roger fait partie du comité de l’instruction publique et devient, le 22 novembre 1809, par la protection de Louis de Fontanes, inspecteur général comptable de l’université. Il est un des plus empressés à applaudir au retour des Bourbons. Il devient inspecteur général des études le 21 février 1815. Destitué aux Cent-Jours, pour de violents articles contre Napoléon publiés dans le Journal général, il doit se cacher.
 Rétabli dans ses anciennes fonctions au retour de Gand, il est appelé aux fonctions de secrétaire général des postes le 12 septembre 1815. Il entre à l’Académie Française par ordonnance royale du 28 août 1817, en remplacement de Suard. En 1832, Louis XVIII lui octroie des lettres de noblesse.
 Élu, le 25 février 1824, député du 2e arrondissement électoral de la Haute-Marne (Langres), il vote avec la majorité ministérielle, et échoue, au renouvellement du 27 novembre 1827, et aux élections générales du 23 juin 1830. Il rentre à la Chambre, le 20 juillet 1830, élu par le grand collège de la Corse, avec 20 voix (37 votants).
 Après les journées de juillet, il est destitué de ses fonctions de secrétaire général des postes et voit en outre son élection invalidée. Il se retire alors de la vie politique et se consacre à ses occupations littéraires. Roger collabore à la Biographie universelle. Il décède à Paris le 1er mars 1842. Il repose avec Henri-louis Roger (1809-1891), médecin, président de l’Académie de Médecine, président de l’association Générale des Médecins de France.

Frank Hagar Bigelow was a United States scientist. His mother took an interest in astronomy, and her involvement caught his interest. He was educated at the primary and high school in Concord, in the Boston Latin School, Harvard College (graduated 1873), and at the Episcopal Theological School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and entered orders. For some years he was assistant astronomer in the Argentine National Observatory in Cordoba. This service (1873-76; 1881-83) was interrupted for his theological studies, and for the short time (1880-81) after entering orders he was a rector in Natick, Massachusetts. Later he was professor of mathematics in Racine College, Wisconsin, assistant in the National Almanac office in Washington, D.C., and in 1891 he became professor of meteorology in the United States Weather Bureau in Washington. He was also an assistant rector of St. John’s Church in Washington.
 His name is especially associated with an instrument for the photographic record of the transit of stars and with some novel studies by which the solar corona, the aurora, and terrestrial magnetism are shown to be associated. The theories met with a favorable reception in scientific circles.

I have an ancestor named Charles Steele (b. May 12, 1821 d. 1890). He married Martha A Boyd (b.1821, d. 1910). She is the daughter of Robert Boyd and Mary Lund Town(e)s. All the children of Robert and Mary were born in Londonderry, NH.
Could my Charles tie into your Steele line? The Boyds are related to Rev. William Boyd who came first to America to survey New Hampshire for the Scotch-Irish group you mentioned. I actually am from two families on those ships. Boyd and McDuffee. Yours would make it three!!

From The Bedford Animal HospitalJonathan S. Lewis Jr. founded the Bedford Animal Hospital in 1944. Dr. Lewis, a New Hampshire native, graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 1943. He returned to New Hampshire and practiced briefly in Peterborough before establishing his veterinary practice in Bedford. The original hospital was a small frame building on Bedford Center Road near the present day Water Center.
 Bedford was a rural community with mainly dirt roads in the 1940’s, with many dairy farms that made up the bulk of Dr. Lewis’s practice. The telephone operator lived not far from the animal hospital. If a phone call for Dr. Lewis went unanswered (34 was the clinic’s number), she would look for his car in the driveway. If he were away on a farm call, she would take a message and give it to him when he returned.
 In 1953, Dr. Lewis was called to duty in the Air Force. He returned in January 1955 and purchased the property on Old Bedford Road where he built the present hospital. During his absence, many of the dairy farms had ceased operation, and the focus of veterinary medicine was changing from farm animals to companion animals. The present hospital was built primarily for treatment of small animals.
 By 1972, much of the farmland in Bedford was undergoing residential development. Dr. Lewis hired Carl T. DePrima DVM as an associate veterinarian in June 1972 to help care for the influx of new pets in the community. The practice grew, as did the need for additional veterinarians. In 1983, Dr. Lewis hired William L. Sofield DVM, PhD. to join the staff. Dr. DePrima and Dr. Sofield, still the current owners, bought the Bedford Animal Hospital from Dr. Lewis in December 1983 when Dr. Lewis retired.
 The house adjacent to the hospital was built in the late 1700’s. It was originally known in Bedford as the Old Cabinet House because the owner David Atwood was a cabinetmaker. He also made the best ox yokes in the area, an important skill as most farm work was done with teams of oxen. The house was rebuilt in 1958 after a fire destroyed most of it.

From Swim Ontario Awards Banquet 2005.
Tom Pinckard started swimming at the age of 5 and continued to swim while living in Brazil, and later while in high school at Ridley College in St. Catherines. He went on to become the captain of the University of New Brunswick swimming and football teams and was honoured with the University’s award for Athletic Distinction. Tom’s athletic interests were multi-faceted, and he received honours not only in swimming, but also in soccer, football, and canoe/kayak. He still holds the CIAU football record for the longest kick (89 yards), and was drafted by the Montreal Alouettes. While at UNB, Tom coached the women’s swim team, with the honoraria received helping to pay his way through law school. In 1967 Tom paddled across Canada in the Voyageur Centennial Canoe Race from Alberta to Montreal.
 He graduated in law in 1969, was called to the Bar in 1971, and has been a practicing lawyer in Huntsville ever since. In 1976 Tom founded the Muskoka Aquatic Club in Bracebridge and was its volunteer Head Coach for 10 years while spearheading the construction of the Huntsville Centennial Pool, which opened in 1986. Volunteering has always been a substantial part of his very busy life, and it still is. A long list of positions of leadership include the following: Director - Ontario Swimming Coaches Association; Chair - Huronia Region; Director and Vice-President - Swim Ontario (CASA – Ontario Section); Chair (6 years)- Swimming Canada; volunteer CEO - Swimming Canada; Member - Canadian Olympic Committee; Vice-President - Commonwealth Games Association of Canada; President - Aquatic Federation of Canada; President - Aquatic Foundation of Canada; President - Swimming Canada Foundation; and the list goes on! Tom pursued other interests as well. He was the Mayor of the Township of Lake of Bays and Councilor for the District of Muskoka (both from 1994 through 2003); Chair - Huntsville Memorial Hospital; Director - Huntsville Chamber of Commerce, Chair - Huntsville Parks & Recreation Committee; and Trustee - Muskoka Board of Education. All organizations benefited greatly from Tom’s dedication and expertise and he has received a plethora of awards for his contributions to Canadian swimming, and sport in general. Among them are the Ontario Aquatic Hall of Fame - Award of Distinction, the Province of Ontario - Award of Distinction; Inductee (Builder) - Huntsville Sports Hall of Fame; Canada 125 Medal; Air Canada Volunteer Coach of the Year; Swimming Canada Volunteer Coach of the Year; and the Canadian Centennial Medal.
 Tom and his wife of 35 years, Dayle, reside in Dwight near Huntsville. They have two sons, Todd and Dan, as well as 2 daughters, Sarah and Emily. Swimming still runs in the family as Emily is a varsity swimmer at University of Ottawa and Tom trains as a Masters Swimmer. The Ontario Aquatic Hall of Fame was proud to induct Tom Pinckard as a Builder. The Ontario Aquatic Hall of Fame is pleased to recognize the accomplishments and contributions of so many, but knows there are many others deserving of the honour.

From Tri-Scottsdale Foundation — I’m (Lewis Elliot) a 27 year old Professional Triathlete from Billings, Montana currently residing in Scottsdale, Arizona. My father Bill, an avid marathoner, encouraged me to start running and cycling as a way to spend time together. I’ve competed for the US National Cycling Team for many years and discovered great success with the sport of triathlon.
I consider being a Professional Athlete a dream come true. I’m the middle of three boys, and I credit my brothers Porter and Blair for giving me my competitive spirit at a very young age.
 In 2006, I won the SOMA Half-Ironman with a bike course record and a personal best time of 3 hours and 58 minutes. The only past winners of this race (Chris McCormack, Chris Legh, and Tim Deboom) are among the most famous and successful triathletes ever to compete.
 2007 was a breakthrough year for me. In March, I finished third at Ironman California and in April I finished 8th at Ironman Arizona. I competed all over the U.S. and traveled to France where I represented the United States at the World Long Course Triathlon Championships. In October, I competed in the Ironman World Championships in Kona.
 In 2008, I hope to win Ironman Arizona as well as place in the top 5 at the Ironman Hawaii World Championships.
 The Tri-Scottsdale partnership with the Susan G. Komen breast cancer charity is a very important to me, as my mother passed away from breast cancer in 2003.

DR. H. M. STEWART was born in Bedford, Virginia, on the 22d of August, 1806. His parents, Thomas and Mary Stewart, were both natives of Virginia. His father emigrated to Madison, Kentucky, in 1811, and settled in the town of Richmond, where the remains of both parents still repose in the old graveyard of that place. His father was a carpenter by trade, which he followed many years. They were both members of the M. E. Church, converted under the preaching of Lorenzo Dow, and he was a local preacher, and followed preaching up to the time of his death. The subject of this sketch received his early education in Kentucky, and at the age of nineteen his father died, and he continued to work on the farm until he arrived at the age of twenty. He then began the study of medicine in the office of Dr. Jonathan Stout, of Richmond, Kentucky, where he spent three years, when he went to New Orleans, stopping there one year, after which he returned to Kentucky, visiting a short time with the friends of his youth, and then located in Harrison, Indiana, where he continued the practice of his profession until 1837. From there he emigrated to Morgan, Illinois (now Scott County), settling where he now resides, near the town of Exeter, on section 35, which was his first purchase, and where he built and improved. A view of the house which he erected at that time may be seen elsewhere in this map. Here the Doctor began the practice of his profession, which he continues to this day, much against his inclination, but the people will not allow him to retire. He has always enjoyed a large practice, and what is remarkable, has never hung out a sign of any description. He was married in 1830, to Miss Liza A. Madden, a native of Kentucky, and daughter of John Madden, Esq. They were married in Harrison, Indiana, in 1831. Mrs. Stewart died that year. They had one child, Clayton M., who now resides at the old homestead. In 1835 the Doctor was again married, to Miss Caroline Madden, sister of his first wife. She died March 19, 1870. They had six children, five of whom are now living, all married with the exception of one, - Henry C., who is now in Colorado. The Doctor has raised six sons, three of whom are practicing physicians. His son Charles died at the age of twenty.
 Dr. Stewart has always taken a very active part in politics. Since the organization of the republican party he has been an active supporter of its principles, and a staunch friend of the Union during the late war. He was a great admirer of President Lincoln, supporting him in both campaigns. Two of his sons were in the army. He did all in his power to encourage enlistments, and gave liberally of his means to the families of those who volunteered, and also obeyed every call when his professional services were needed, gratuitously, in the families of the gallant boys in the field.
 Dr. Stewart’s eldest son, Clayton M., read medicine in the office of his father three years, attended lectures at the Missouri Medical College, at St. Louis, where he graduated, and returning home, began the practice with his father, which he continued two years. In 1860 and 1861 he attended lectures at the Jefferson Medical College, at Philadelphia, where he graduated. The second son, J. Horace Stewart, upon the breaking out of the rebellion, volunteered in the 14th regiment Illinois volunteers as a private. He was promoted to quartermaster of the regiment, which position he held until the regiment was mustered out of the service at the close of the war, when he returned home. In the fall of 1868 he was elected to the office of sheriff of Scott county by the republican party. His third son resides with his father-in-law at or near Riggston. His daughter Eliza Ann is the wife of Dr. B. H. Skinner, who resides at Merit, Scott, Illinois. John H., who now resides in Exeter, graduated at Rush Medical College, Chicago. The Doctor has one of the finest grain stock, and fruit farms in the, consisting of five hundred and fifty acres of land. A view of his residence appears elsewhere in this Map.

JUNKINS, George Selby (I67)
From Fifty Years with the Baptist Ministers and Churches of the Maritime Provinces (by. Rev. I. E. Bill), p. 403:
   Joseph C. SKINNER was born at Parrsboro, N.S., in the year 1800, and was early instructed by his godly mother, the late Mrs. Sarah Skinner, in the principles and obligations of the Christian faith. When about twenty years of age he professed religion, and was baptized by the late Edward Manning. He was then regarded as a young man of more than ordinary promise. He removed to New Brunswick in 1825, and feeling a deep interest in the progress of education, he devoted several years of his life to the instruction of the young. In 1836 he was ordained to the pastorate of what was then designated the First Wickham Church. He faithfully fulfilled the duties of his office for many years; and although his pastoral connection nominally ceased some time prior to his death, yet virtually he continued to preside over these people and to watch for their souls as one that must give an account, until removed to join the Church triumphant in the heaves. He departed this life in the sixty-first year of his age, March 23, 1860, in full assurance of the faith he had so long proclaimed as the only ground of the sinner’s hope. He was interred in the churchyard surronding the house in which he was ordained, in the presence of a large concourse of people. Rev. David Crandall preached his funeral sermon from 2 Timothy, 4: 7, 8; “I have fought the good fight”, etc.
 Our departed Brother Skinner stood pre-eminent among his brethren as wise in counsel, evangelical in doctrine, an spotless in life. It was his happiness to witness several interesting revivals of religion during his pastorate, and to induct many valuable members in to the fellowship of the Church; and though his labours on earth have terminated, yet the instructions which he gave, his meek and pure example, and the composure and confidence with which he passed through the valley of death, will continue to give forth utterances distinct and solemn, calling upon the people of Cambridge to “Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright; for the end ot that man in peace.”

“The Early Baptist of Cambridge Parish, Queens, New Brunswick”, by Ruby Cusack
   With Christmas being only four days away, Cliff and I were getting more and more excited by the hour. Mum had made the fruit cakes well in advance. The shelves in the back pantry were lined with tin containers filled with all sorts of cakes, squares, cookies and pies. I was so tempted to sneak in there for a feed of honey bars but I didn’t want to get in trouble at this time of the year.
 Gord had spent several hours searching the upper pasture for the perfectly shaped fir tree and now it was leaning against the wall in the livingroom. Dad and Gramp took on the task of nailing the board to the bottom, then turning it round and round to find the best side before anchoring it to the window casing with heavy twine. While they were doing this, the rest of us set to work with darn needles and heavy thread to string the coloured popcorn.
 In no time at all, the adults began to chat about the traditions of the Christmases of the past and the church services they had attended as youngsters, which led into a long discussion concerning the members of the families who gathered to worship in the communities where they grew up.
 In 1941, the Reverend Walter R. Greenwood felt that the Church’s traditions were the most valuable possession and should be carefully preserved. It was this thought that prompted his writing of “The Early Baptist of Cambridge Parish, Queens, New Brunswick”. And in so doing he provided information on the members of many families.
 Chapter one deals with the church at Jemseg. The first family being the Wades who migrated in the mid 1800’s to Ontario but was still represented in the community through relationship with Percy McLean.
 Among the names of the Charter member on the rolls of the Waterborough Church are,
– Elijah Estabrooks (Teaching Elder),
– Joseph Estabrooks (Deacon), Ebenezer Estabrooks and John Estabrooks. These are all sons of Sergeant Elijah Estabrooks from whom all the Estabrooks on the St. John River are descended.
– The Rev. Francis Pickle was sent by the Domestic Missionary Society to labor on Grand Lake. There were twelve baptized under his ministry at Cumberland Bay in February and March of 1827.
– David Chase, who was a brother of Rev. Skinner’s wife, pursued his ministry successfully for seven years until, as a young man of thirty-six died of tuberculosis. Three months later his wife Jane died of the same disease.
– William Springer, the Loyalist, who came from Wilmington, Delaware married Sarah Thurston,
– Margaret, the daughter of Squire John Robertson, was the wife of George Wilson and moved to Salmon River.
– John J. Camp was a grandson of Abiathar Camp, the Loyalist.
 The Birthday of the Mill Cove Church could be considered as being on the 26th of June 1825 for it was then that John Branscomb, Ann McLean, Ann Elsworth and Mary Ferris were baptized. John Branscomb was the son of Arthur Branscomb and married Mary Wiggins. Ann McLean married David McIntosh and lived in Mill Cove. Ann Elsworth was a daughter of William Elsworth. Her brother, Hanford, married Sarah Ferris, a daughter of George Ferris, the Loyalist. Mary Ferris was a daughter of John and Mary Ferris. The upper storey of their stone house was used to hold church services.
– William Sharp, Eliza Clark, Jeremiah Oakley, Lucy Gidney and Mrs. David Nevers were the first mentioned of Baptist people living at Lower Jemseg and vicinity as found in the records of Canning Baptist Church during the years 1830-1833.
– In 1836 Joseph C. Skinner, who had come to the community as a teacher in 1833, became the first resident pastor of the church at MacDonald’s Corner. His ministry here lasted until his death in 1860. Elder Skinner was not a robust man but he and his wife were persons of superior mentality. Of their family, five sons became medical doctors in the United States. One of the daughters, Betsy Ann, married Amos Straight and another daughter married Robert Coes.
 Biographical information is provided on the forty-one names that were listed on the roll in 1840. One of the clerks and later made a deacon in 1843, at the MacDonald’s Corner Church was Anthony Flower, who was born in 1792 at Old Gravel Lane, Radclife Highway, London, England. As a young boy he attended the Royal Academy School and was a roommate with Joseph William Turner who became one of the leading landscapes painters of all times. His wife, Mary, was the daughter of James Green. I might add, that today, Anthony Flower is a well known New Brunswick artist. His home has been moved to the village of Cambridge-Narrows. It will be restored to appear as it did during Flower’s life and will be opened in 2005 as a House Museum, dedicated to the life and times of Anthony Flower.
– Rebecca Carpenter, the daughter of Ephraim and Ann Carpenter, married Richard Ryder and lived her married life in Saint John.
 In the evening of December 5th, 1839, a meeting was held at Mr. James Hendry’s to organize a church to be called the second Baptist Church of Wickham. This entry was found in the church records concerning the beginnings of organized church life at Lower Cambridge. The author states that in 1825, thirteen people met in Alexander B. MacDonald’s barn and were duly constituted into the First Baptist Church in Wickham.
 A Baptist Church was organized at Cambridge in the Meeting House near Mr. Amos S. Corey’s on November 5th, 1855... in all 21 members coming into the church fellowship as a distinct church. In 1856 twenty-eight were added to the church. Surnames of the members of this church include, Corey, Hetherington, Cottle, Wilson, Hughes, Belyea, Dykeman, Blizard, Akerley, Robertson, Black, White, Chase, Little, Wood, Straight, Todd, and Pierce. Here again, a review is given of the families.
 — “The Early Baptist of Cambridge Parish, Queens, New Brunswick” by the Reverend Walter R. Greenwood, a 1941, eighty page publication provides a wealth of genealogical information concerning the families who attended the churches in the area. The book is available at the Fredericton Library and the Legislative Library and possibly at other research institutions within New Brunswick.

 The church ceremony was witnessed by 100 persons, including a number of standees in rear pews, and several policemen, who kept outsiders from opening windows and peering in. A wedding reception was held at Boutall’s farm house. Boutall, busy with 200 hens, is not planning a wedding trip in the near future.

Hot Weather Item!, by Benezer Bay.
 An Athol, Massachusetts, dispatch of Thursday last told of the proposed marriage of a 63-year-old widower and a 16-year-old girl of that burg. One newspaper carried a picture of the elederly Romeo lifting his youthful bride-to-be, just to show his retained strength.
 “The only ones in the neighborhood who object to the marriage,” he is reported as saying, “are a couple of old maids who think I should marry someone nearer my own age.” “My answer to them,” continued the prospective groom, “is that when I buy a piano, I don’t want an antique, I want one that plays.”
 Boutall, as is said to be his name, should be careful about making assertions about purchasing antiques. His young bride might awaken some fine morning to realize that she has done just that.

Bridegroom of 64 Who Wed Girl 16 Confounds Critics
ATHOL, Mass., Jull 11 – (AP) – Herbert D. Boutall, the 64-year-old Athol chicken farmer who took a 16-year-old wife juste a year ago, looked back with pleasure today on a “happy year” and laughed at the critics who predicted the May-December romance would go on the rocks.
 His pretty, brunette bride, Flora Evelyn Anna, who turned 17 on July 1, agreed and chuckled as Boutall praised her ability as a cook, a thrifty manager and a maker of “wonderful home brew”.
 Boutall, who runs a small egg route, recalled with a grin the “crank letter writers” who told him after the marriage to “leave the chickens alone and take care of the hens”. “The happy year we have had,” and he smiled at his wife, attired in flowered shorts and jacket, “simply proves that we meant marriage in every sense of the word whe we applied for a license a year ago. We knew then that it wasn’t fascination on the part of one and infatuation on the part of the other.”

From The Lewiston Daily Sun 14 apr, 1943
Boutall will not return to England
Athol Man, 68, Who Wed Girl, 20, Gets Probation for Non-Support
ATHOL, Mass., April 13 – AP – Herbert D. Boutall, 68 who announced on Saturday that his marriage to the former Ann Evelyn May, 20, was on the rocks after five years, will not go to his native England as he had planned.
He was under two years probation today after being convicted of non-support of two children, for whos keep he was ordered to pay $12 a week.
 The May-December romance began when Ann left school to become Boutall’s housekeeper two years after his first wife died. Two children were born to them, Barbara Ann 3, and David, 2. Mrs. Boutall and the children live here with her mother while Boutall works and lives in nearby Orange. On Saturday he said he soon would return to his native England to take a war job.

From the blog My Father’s posts dedicated to Ebenezer Ray :
A Piano Lesson ?
 Before there was Rupert Murdoch and Wendi, his pie-spiking wife; before the celebrity sphere was all a twitter about 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison marrying a reportedly 16-year-old Courtney Stodden, there was Herbert David Boutall, 63, and his 16-year-old bride, Ann
 Dubbed a “hot weather item,” in my father’s column on July 16, 1938, the item wasn’t about the temperatures at all. It was about a May-December romance that made headlines across the nation.
 “Both of the characters in this February-December drama are white, but what of it?” my father wrote. “One newspaper carried a picture of the elderly Romeo lifting his youthful bride-to-be, just to show his retained strength.“
Boutall, a widower from Athol, Mass. is quoted as saying: “The only ones in the neighborhood who object to the marriage are a couple of old maids who think I should marry someone nearer my own age. My answer to them is that when I buy a piano I don’t want an antique. I want one that plays.”
 “Boutall should be careful about making assertions about purchasing antiques,” Ebenezer wrote. “His young bride might awaken some fine morning to realize that she has done just that.”
 In hindsight, Ebenezer might have taken his own advice about making assertions. Ten years later, he would end up in his own May-December romance. My mother, certainly no child, was only 22 years my father’s junior, which doesn’t come close to the Boutalls’ 47-year age difference. Still, it’s a reminder that you never know when your own words will come back to bite you, especially when you are talking about “old” people.
 I followed the Boutall marriage in the archives of the Boston Globe. More than 5000 spectators lined the streets for the wedding on July 11, 1938. The church only seated 120. In August, a subsequent Globe article intimated that the couple was thinking of selling their New England farm and moving to England, where Herbert was from. A year later, they were still in Athol, according to the Globe headline: “Farmer, 64, wife 17, will mark first year of marital bliss today.”
 Then in May 1940, the Globe announced that the “May–December couple proud parents of a girl.” They had a son the next June, but, alas, on April 10, 1943, the Globe announced, “Gap of 47 years too much for Athol pair, so they’ve separated.”
 The paper quoted Herbert as saying, “If she wants a younger man she can have one.” According to that Globe article, Herbert was headed to England to work in a war plant. His wife and children moved back in with her parents.
 Perhaps she got a new piano.

From New Brunswick Author Portal:
Yvonne Wilson — Born Cougle in Saint John, when not quite four learned that HERE in not the only place. Infant imagination burst free; feet followed.
 Graduated from McAdam High, then Dalhousie University but with no healing of the itchy feet. Became a science teacher (B. Ed., University of New Brunswick) but at Campellton was pressed into teaching “composition”- anybody can teach English! Loved it. Taught English in Val-d’Or (Quebec), Montreal, Vancouver, New Zealand, Western Australia. Finished teaching career as first Instructor in the Writing Lab at University of New Brunswick, Saint John.
 Meanwhile, added the name Wilson, edited scientific papers, brought up two daughters, and began to write fiction. Became a book editor with DreamCatcher Publishing in Saint John, then with Trinity Enterprise (specialists in e-Books)
 Ten novels published and one book of non-fiction (about writing) with Allison Mitcham. Novels include the humorous Trinity Romances by “Briann Stuart.” And I think my masterpiece is coming up.

How has New Brunswick influenced your work?
 When you drive over the Petersville hill and see fog ahead, you are coming home. When you feel the plane begin to descend, you smile; you are coming home. When you wake on the train and see fresh snow on the spruce trees that are sliding by, you are coming home.
 I have never seen a bird I didn’t remember or a field of wild flowers under a summer sun; and every one of them stands in comparison with gulls in fog, black flies in dandelions, or the tiny ants in a bouquet of daisies. New Brunswick is home, anchor, standard of reference, behind every inspiration.

What is your favourite New Brunswick book, and why?
 My favourite New Brunswick Book is Funny Fables of Fundy, a book of poems for children by Grace Helen Mowat (1875 -1964). I lost the copy I had as a child and nobody rejoiced more mightily than I when it was reprinted some years ago. Who could have ever forgotten the epitaph? Jersey Lily. Paris Green / Jersey Lily no more seen.

What do you consider to be the highlight of your career so far?
 Cyril Connelly has said “the true function of the writer is to produce a masterpiece and no other task is of any consequence…” (The Unquiet Grave) Experiencing the flow of a story as it writes itself on the page is life-enhancing. Feeling that another book is insisting it be written is life-sustaining – a “Rocky Mountain High”. Best of all is the promise that the masterpiece is yet to be. A successful launch is pleasant; compliments readers whose opinion one respects make the hours on the job worthwhile: a royalty cheque is good; but it’s the writing that counts. I have been lucky. As a book editor, I know that most manuscripts are returned to sender. But I think I would have written my books if not one of them had ever been published. If a story is in you, you have to let it out.

From The Kneeland Miscellany, Compiled by Bertha J. and Frank E. Kneeland, 1914-1917.

Page 206. – Frank Elmer Kneeland, born at Searsport, Me., July 27, 1870. Married December 24, 1910, to Bertha Louise Junkins of Brooklyn by the Reverend Doctor Newell Dwight Hillis, Pastor of Plymouth Church, in the parlor of his home at 23 Monroe Place, Brooklyn, N. Y. For eleven years preceding and six months succeeding her marriage, she was the teacher of Latin and Greek at the Berkeley Institute, 183 (181-3-5) Lincoln Place, Brooklyn, N.Y. Her parents were George Selby and Josephine (McDuffee) Junkins – (her mother was named Mary Josephine) –, born 10, 1846 and February 12, 1848, at South Berwick, Maine, and Rochester, New Hampshire, respectively. [...]
 Mr. and Mrs. Junkins’s eldest child, Bertha Louise, had taken the degree of A.B. at Boston University with the class of 1898 and that of A.M. at Radcliffe in 1899, in September of which year she assumed her duties as one of the Faculty of The Berkeley Institute and became on the the occupants of a table for four in what is now known as “The Victoria” at 42-44 Seventh Avenue, Brooklyn — which last is only some three miles removed from the north’east corner of the Manhattan tower of the old Brooklyn Bridge!

Frank E. and Bertha (Junkins) Kneeland have two children:
 (1) Helen Elizabeth Crockett Kneekland – (except for birth certificate purposes the “Elizabeth” has been dropped) –, born at the Prospect Heights Hospital, Brooklyn, N.Y. (Washington Ave. and ST. John’s Place) – on December 24, 1911, her mother having been attended byr DR. J.P. Pendelton, 90 Sixth Ave., Broklyn. As I write this (3/12/17) she is scurrying around “The Hill” in Searsport, dragging a sled made for Hal by her Great-Grandfather Crockett and with “Don” as her companion!
 (2) Frances Hichborn Kneeland, born June 20, 1916, at the Methodist Episcopal – (“Seney”) – Hospital, Seventh Ave. and Seventh street, Brooklyn, N.Y., where her mother was attented by Dr. Harold Bell of President Street, Brooklyn, acting for Dr. Louis M. Dusseldorf, 392 Union St., Brooklyn the family physician who had recently lost his right hand in an automobile accident.
 Before she was two weeks old the Infantile Paralysis Epidemic of 1916, in which there were something like 10,000 cases and 2500 deaths in the City of New York alone, had gained full headway in Brooklyn, its place of origin, whence her father, upon learning from Dr. Bailey Sunday evening that seventeen cases had that day been taken from a few blocks in Union Street, had fled the next day, Monday, July 3rd, to Maine with her sister Helen, leaving her and her mother to be brought home from the hospital the next day by “Grammie” Shaw (Mrs. Florence C., the wife of the Rev. Edward B. Shaw of Monroe, N.Y.)–, and on which “Flight into Egypt” he was followed by her and her mother just two weeks later – they arrived at Searsport on July 19th and they’re there yet! She is now (3/12/17) busily, and noisily, engaged in cutting some teeth, two of which are already in evidence! The “Frances” is as near as she could come to being named for her “Daddy” and the “Hichborn” was the middle name of both her Great-Grandfather and Great-Grandmother Kneeland, on whom it had been bestowed in respect to that Hon. Robert Hichborn of the “Boston Tea Party” who had brougth her Great-Great-Grandfather Edward Kneeland to Cape Jellison from Boston when the American Republic was so young that its Constitution had not yet been adopted nor Washington elected President! — and but for whom our particular branch of the Kneeland family probably never would have landed in Maine! Perhaps they wouldn’t have landed anywhere! Quien sabe?
 A propos of names: – Her elder sister was first called “Helen Elizabeth” but when, upon attaining to the age of about four weeks, she frowned upon her “Daddy” so migthily that he remarked that “she looks just like her Great-Grandfather Crockett!”, her mother seized upon the incident as a good and sufficient reason for making her middle name “Crockett”! I tried to have the name changed in the Brooklyn office of the Registrar of Births for New York but was told that this could not be done — that in the event she should ever wish to obtain a birth certificate, she shoud ask to have it issued in the name of Helen Elizabeth Crockett Kneeland. This curcumstance is set down here – (I forgot to write it under her own name) – for her information in the event that she should need it when her father and mother have “gone away from here”! I may also remark that the “Helen” is for her Aunt Helen MacDuffee (Junkins) Beach, who “improved” on her mother’s spelling of her maiden name by adding an “a“ to it!

George Selby and Mary Josephine (McDuffee) Junkins [were] born 10, 1846 and February 12, 1848, at South Berwick, Maine, and Rochester, New Hampshire, respectively. They were married at Lawrence, Mass., April 12, 1870 (4/2/70) and, with the exception of the first year of their married life during which Mr. Junkins was in charge of a woolen factory at North Berwick, Me., lived continuously in that city, of which he was twice Mayor, up to the time of his death on November 12, 1900. Some three years after his death and after her daughters Helen and Marian had graduated from the Boston University School of Medecine and Radcliffe College respectively in 1903 (1903), Mrs. Junkins removed with her daughter Helen to Lowell, Mass, where they resided upt to the time of the latter’s marriage to Edward J. Beach at her sister Marian’s home on the grounds of Leland Stanford, Jr. University at Palo Alto, California, in April 1909.
 Having previously sold her home on Tower Hill, Lawrence, (110 Bodwell street), Mrs. Junkins thereafter became a considerable traveller, making frequent visits to her daughters in Brooklyn, N.Y., Dubuque, Iowa, and Leland Stanford, Jr., University, California, taking occasion to see such natural wonders as The Yellowstone, The Yosemite, and The Grand Canyon of Arizona en route, a tour of Alaska in 1911, and one of Europe extending through Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Holland and Belgium, in 1912. She last visited her eldest daughter at Brooklyn on her return from Europe in September, 1912, at which time she took the pictures of her grand-daughter Helen seated in her baby chairs and bath-tub on the roof of the apartment house at 128 Sterling Place, Brooklyn, with the tower of the Christian Science Church accross the way in the background, which appear in Helen’s baby album. Leaving for Dubuque on this occasion, Mrs. Junkins made the trip up the Hudson on one of the Day Line steamers and opined that, except for the castles, the real Rhine which she had traversed a few weeks previously had nothing on its American prototype! Shortly after her youngest daughter Marian’s third child (Carlton Skinner) was born at the hospital in Palo Alto, California, in April, 1913, Mrs. Junkins herself was forced to become a patient in the same hospital where she underwent two operations for the stomach trouble from which she had long been a sufferer! She rallied sufficiently to make the trip to Dubuque, Iowa, in the early Summer of 1913, but suffered a relapse shortly after her arrival and died in the hospital to which she had been removed in Dubuque on August 6, 1913. Both she and her husband sleep in the lot which he had provided in the Extension to Bellevue Cemetery at Lawrence, Mass. Prior to his election to the Mayoralty, Mr. Junkins had been in the Meat and Provision business. After his second term as Mayor had expired he became associated with the Stanley Grain Company of Lawrence as its Treasurer! It is now owned and conducted by George A. Stanley, whose father was the original founder of the business!

A Gastonia youth surrendered his driver’s permit today in Municipal Court until Dec. 1, rather than face a prison sentence on a charge of reckless driving.
City Police Office J. W. Russel said he and Officer D. L. Rhyne said they chased David Arnold Blackburn, 19, of 1007 E. Sixth Ave., from Cox Rd., to Grier School.
Russell said he first heard Blackburn coming down the road at a very high rate of speed. He said Blackburn hit a ditch and his car left the ground and leaped about five or six feet into the air and came to rest about five feed from a utility pole.
Judge Oscar Mason told Blackburn he could surrender his driver’s permit and report to court Dec. 1, 1964 and show he had been of good behavior or else he would sentence him today.

Blackburn Loses Car Second Time Around
GASTONIA, N.C. (AP) — David Blackburn managed to stop his car at a railroad crossing two weeks ago as a train was passing, and lost only his headlights. At the same crossing, Wednesday, police said, a train hit his car again, this time broadside, demolishing the vehicle. Blackburn, 25, again escaped unharmed.

From the Iowa City Citizen, November 24, 1909 :
Adam Gill was born in Homburg, Germany, in 1828, and came to America in 1854, landing in New York City, where he remained until 1855. While there he met Jacob Hötz Sr., the father of our present alderman. Mr. Gill and several others were considering locating in the west and Mr. Hötz informed them that he was going west. They therefore concluded to wait until they could have a report from him as to the prospect. After reaching Iowa he wrote to them to come, and in 1855 Mr. Gill came to Iowa City and has since resided here. He was married in 1857, and has three sons and two daughters, his wife having died thirtheen years ago. Mr. Gill was a tailor by trade and for many years followed that occupation. In 1866 he opened a restaurant and conducted it until 1884. He is one of the most active members of the German Aid society, taking a keen interest in its affairs. He has held offices in the organization at various times and always very efficiently. He was elected president a number of times during the period of his fifty years of membership.

From “Marblehead Community” — December 14, 2000.
Marblehead man not afraid to make waves at sea
By Stephen Decatur, Special to the reporter

 We who live in Marblehead are fortunate to be surrounded by a fascinating universe. But never mind the harbor, the boats, the wonderful architecture and the myriad other things: one of the most important aspects of this town is its people.
Today we meet a man who has demonstrated a wide range of talents: captain of the world’s largest sailing yacht (though it had no masts at the time), friend of one of this country’s great black artists, governor of the island of Guam, resident of Paris every summer, and owner of a good measure of social conscience.
Carlton Skinner is our man. Born in California and educated at a venerable New England prep school, he now resides in Marblehead. After college he went to work for the Wall Street Journal. Later he almost joined the Republicans in Spain fighting the fascists during the Spanish Civil War in the 1930s. He decided against it, however, because he disapproved of the behavior of the Communists who had infiltrated the anti-fascist forces allied against Franco. Then along came the beginnings of World War II.
 As a sailor and boat racer, Skinner’s preference was the Navy or Coast Guard. He was commissioned a lieutenant, junior grade, in the Coast Guard Reserve and ordered to sea as executive officer aboard the cutter “Northland”. Just several months before the Pearl Harbor attack, the “Northland” landed a shore party on the coast of Greenland. Young Lt. Skinner was in command.
 It seems the Nazis had set up a weather station there. We were not at war with Germany at the time, of course, but the United States had very friendly and “cordial” relations with the Danish government in exile. (Denmark had been overrun by the Germans in 1940.) The weather station was captured and put out of operation with no shots fired or casualties.
 Thus ended what could be considered the first land action by U.S. forces in the coming war, although technically we were still at peace. America had by this time become extremely pro-British and extremely anti-German, even to the extent of our warships protecting Britain-bound convoys. In fact, we had several skirmishes with U-boats, including a most serious one when one of our destroyers was actually sunk.
 After a short stint as commander of an LST landing craft, Skinner became captain of the USS Sea Cloud. She was (and still is) an interesting ship, indeed. Officially a U.S. Navy ship, she was manned by the U.S. Coast Guard. Sea Cloud was owned by the cereal heiress Marjorie Post Hutton Davies and her husband, Joseph Davies, the ambassador to the Soviet Union and later to Belgium.
 The ship was the largest privately owned sailing yacht in the world. Built in Germany as a four-masted bark, she’s 316 feet long and displaces 3,600 tons. (She is still active to this day as a cruise ship in the Mediterranean.) Sea Cloud’s masts had been removed, only enough remaining for radio and communication purposes. Armaments were two 3-inch guns, depth charges and a slew of antiaircraft weapons. Her duties were weather and anti-submarine patrols between Greenland, Iceland and Bermuda, with home ports in Boston or Newfoundland.
 USS Sea Cloud was decommissioned out of the service in late 1944. The Navy fixed her up somewhat and returned the ship to Mrs. Davies, along with $750,000 to complete the restoration. The U.S. government had paid $1 per year to use the ship in the first place.
 After the war Sea Cloud passed through several owners, one of whom was Generalissimo Rafael Trujillo, dictator of the Dominican Republic. When he was assassinated in 1964 she was resold to a consortium which eventually converted her to a cruise ship.
 Long before boarding the Sea Cloud, Skinner had become aware of the terrible waste of manpower and talent in the Coast Guard and Navy. While aboard any ship at sea, African-American seamen were relegated to being stewards waiting upon white officers, or were mess mates or cooks. This was true no matter what a man’s potential and abilities were.
 Not only that, but the unfairness of it all bothered Skinner, now a lieutenant commander. Skinner wrote to many higher-ups in Washington and finally was allowed to experiment with some of his black crew. Men were at last allowed to study and to achieve ratings such as machinist’s mates, quartermasters, gunner’s mates, or whatever their bent may have been.
 Along the way this would mean a further integration between the black and white crews aboard ship. Skinner had “found the artificial distinction between race and color can disappear,” he said.
 One of the stewards aboard Sea Cloud was Jacob Lawrence. Skinner learned immediately that Lawrence was one of America’s great “social realist” painters. Born in 1917 in Harlem, he had already become famous with his narrative and thematic series of paintings telling of the black experience. Using representational imagery and brilliant colors, his works are reminiscent of the mural and wall paintings so popular in the 1930s. Lawrence is particularly noted for his monumental 41 paintings titled “The Migration Series” of 1940-41. Another series portrayed the lives of Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass.
 In keeping with Skinner’s plans to integrate his crew, Lawrence was put to painting the wartime activities of the Coast Guard. Those works served a valuable function in bringing the war to the American public. Many still survive today in museums and private collections.
 Lawrence painted only two portraits. One is of Carlton Skinner and is now at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington. Incidentally, Jacob Lawrence died this past June at age 82. His memorial service at the Riverside Church in New York City was attended by 2,500 people.
 So it was that the Navy and Coast Guard fully integrated their ships by 1945, due in major part to Carlton Skinner’s efforts. As a result of his leadership, Skinner was asked to be the first post-war governor of the island of Guam in the Pacific.
 Guam had at that time about 30,000 indigenous people, along with thousands of temporary American civilian and military personnel. Guam was a major wartime base in the Pacific during the war. Few problems arose during Skinner’s leadership of the transition from a military to a civil government between 1949 and 1953.
 After that, Skinner worked in the shipping business and for corporations in the eastern United States. Now retired, he appears still to have a lot of salt in his veins. These days he regularly enjoys the best of two worlds: he and his wife divide their time between Paris in the summers and Marblehead the rest of the year.

This is one of a series of occasional articles about Marblehead people, past and present, and their relationship with the sea.

In June 1943 Lieutenant Commander Carlton Skinner’s proposal that the U.S. Coast Guard establish an entirely integrated force eventually led to the commissioning of the first integrated ship in the armed forces, the U.S. Coast Guard cutter Sea Cloud. Skinner commanded a 200-man crew that included 4 African-American officers and 100 black enlisted men. Decommissioned in November 1944, this ship’s crew helped break down military segregation at sea.
After World War II, he was a public relations officer in the Department of Interior, and was selected by the Interior Department, nominated by the Navy Department and then appointed by the President to serve as Guam’s first civilian Governor. He took the oath of office on September 17, 1949. (Picture1, Picture2 taken during the 50 years celebration).

Belvedere Man Is Appointed to Tourist Commission By Brown
 Cartlon Skinner, of Belvedere, was named today by Governor Edmund G. Brown as chairman of the Tourism and Visitor Services Commision. The Commission, which was created by the 1964 Legislature, has a total of 15 members. Skinner was named as a general public representative to the Commission. The appointment requires Senate confirmation.
 “Carlton Skinner, a man of international reputation, is highly qualified for this new post.” the Governor said. “I am proud that the State of California can attract men of his talent, knowledge and ability as our new tourism and visitor services program begins to move into high gear. With an agressive and imaginative program we can help attract new tourist spending in our state and new tourist industries that can provide a major stimulus fo our state economy.”
 A graduate of the University of California at Los Angeles, Skinner presently heads Skinner and Company, a management consultant firm in San Francisco. He was director of the Virgin Islands Corporation and was formerly employed by the United States Maritime Commision. Skinner is a former trustee of the United Seaman’s Service.
 A former governor of Guam (1949-1953), Skinner was appointed by the late President Kennedy as senior commissioner for the United States on the South Pacific Commission. This Commission is responsible for non-selfgoverning territories in the Pacific. He was formerly executive assistant to the President of the American President Lines, and was vice president of the Fairbanks-Whitney Corporation. (source : Sausalito News, 23 Februray 1966)

From: What happened to Parson John Ambrose and his family? (Joanne Major, 26 March 2014)

Juliana Catherine Colyear’s background and ancestry deserves to be examined and we make no apologies for going off at a tangent here and recording the story of her ancestors. Her mother was Harriet Bishopp, daughter of Colonel Henry (Harry) and Mrs Mary Bishopp of Sussex with illustrious family connections. Colonel Harry was the youngest son of Sir Cecil Bishopp and Harry’s sister Frances was the wife of Sir George Warren. In the September of 1791, at the age of 22, Harriet had married one Henry Jackson, reportedly an ’eminent solicitor’ and the two had settled down to married life. In 1793 Henry Jackson suffered a paralytic stroke and Harriet added the role of nurse to that of devoted wife up until July 1799 when she met Viscount Milsington at a ball thrown by Lady Charles Somerset. Milsington, or Thomas Charles Colyear, was the eldest son of the 3rd Earl of Portmore, his mother being a daughter of the Earl of Rothes and he had been married to Lady Mary Elizabeth Bertie, only child of Brownlow Bertie, the 5th Duke of Ancaster and heir to a fortune. One child had been born of that union, a son named Brownlow Charles Colyear in 1796 and Lady Mary Elizabeth had died the following year.

The acquaintance between Harriet Jackson and Lord Milsington was renewed the following summer at Ascot Races and Harriet passed Milsington off to her husband and his relations as the suitor of one of her unmarried sisters, a ruse that was totally believed by all concerned. Henry Jackson positively encouraged Milsington to spend time with his extended family, even inviting him to stay at his own house, keen to have a sister in law married to an heir to an Earldom, never thinking he was being cuckolded. Months passed and by the summer of 1801 Jackson was beginning to suspect that something was amiss, the expected marriage proposal to Miss Bishopp not having materialized and he ordered his wife to break off the friendship and not to allow him to visit again. He left it to his wife to decide how to break this news to Milsington. Faced with the prospect of having to break off contact with her lover, Harriet was distraught and there was an added complication. She had a child, one that although recognized as the legitimate child of her husband, had been born since she had begun her relationship with Lord Milsington (she had fallen pregnant before this but it had resulted in a miscarriage). Milsington expressed his wish to look after her and her child and on the 4th August 1801 she ran away from her husband’s house and eloped with her lover. It is not known whether she took the child with her.

Henry Jackson instituted a criminal conversation or ‘crim. con.’ trial against Lord Milsington and this was heard on the 9th January 1802. The Miss Bishopp whom Milsington had supposedly been paying his attentions to did not appear, through reasons of delicacy, and various witnesses were examined. They all expressed surprise at the elopement, having no idea of the attachment and no evidence was produced against Milsington apart from a letter to his ‘beloved’ and ‘adored’ Harriet which was found in a drawer of her desk.
I hope most earnestly very soon to see that my beloved Harriet was not the worse for the expedition of yesterday. I wished very much to have called this morning, to have inquired after her, but thought if I did, I should not have the pleasure of passing the evening with the only woman in the world that I have the smallest attachment to, an attachment so strong and fixed, that nothing in the world can alter. I never can be happy till we live together, with that dear little angel that so resembles the figure of its dearest mother; it makes me quite miserable, the thoughts of leaving town; I cannot bear to be separated from you, my love; I hope it will not be the case; I am sure we could be happy together, and my only study the happiness of you, my adored Harriet, and the welfare of your children. Pray, my love, let me see you to-morrow if it is in your power. I wish very, very much, that we may meet to fix when we shall meet not to part again. Perhaps you will not have an opportunity of reading this before I am obliged to leave you, therefore I will be in Hart-street, at the usual place, at twelve o’clock to-morrow; pray come as soon after as you can; and believe me most sincerely, affectionately, and faithfully, yours ever, M.

Henry Jackson won the case, being awarded £2,000 damages for the loss of his wife’s affections and society, with Milsington having to pay the costs of the case too.

The Portsmouth Telegraph or Mottley’s Naval and Military Journal reported on the 18th January 1802, shortly after the close of the trial that:
Parmesan and prunelloes seem to be exploded in crim.con. fashions. It appeared on a late trial, that Lord Milsington made his way to the heart of Mrs. Jackson by the means of Sandwiches at Ascot Races. The favourite food of the frail fair has changed much since the original apple.

Seven children were born to Lord Milsington and Harriet Jackson, all out of wedlock. Sod’s Law decrees that the only two for whom we can find no record of their birth or baptism includes Juliana Catherine, the one we are most interested in, but we can record her siblings here.
– Mary Ann Colyear, born 6th June 1802 (died a spinster)
– Thomas David Colyear, born 15th May 1805 (died 8th August 1875 at Dekani near Simlar, Lt Col of the 7th Bengal Light Infantry)
– Charles Frederick Colyear, born 12th June 1806 (married Matilda Frances Winsor at St. Marylebone in 1828)
– Martin Thomas Colyear, born 26th May 1807 (sent out a cadet in the East India Co. army c.1822 and died at Dum Dum, Bengal, on the 13th February 1827)
– Elinor Mary Colyear, born 8th July 1808 (married Jerome Francis Edouard Roger in 1829, possibly died 1878)
– Harriet Frances Colyear (married André Libert Romain Viollet, a professor of languages, died January 1888).

It is worth noting that Juliana Catherine stated that she was 27 years old in 1833 at the birth registration of her daughter Emma in Nantes, putting her birth around 1806. It is more likely that she was actually born 1803-1804 and was knocking a couple of years off her age.

There is also an interesting baptism on the 8th September 1814 at St. Martin in the Fields, Westminster, for a Catherine Marianne Colyear, daughter of Thomas Charles Colyear and Elizabeth Penny, possibly another child by a different mother.

At the time of Milsington’s marriage with his first wife, the heiress of the 5th Duke of Ancaster, a sum of £38,000 had been settled on the couple jointly. Milsington, often to be found at the races in esteemed company, including the Prince of Wales and Sir John Lade, quickly found himself in embarrassed circumstances and had borrowed £10,000 from an army agent, Mr Bruce, signing over to him his interest in various annuities and rent charges.

The Duke of Ancaster duly died in 1809 and left his property (but not his estate or titles) to his only grandson, Brownlow Charles Colyear, the terms of the will stating that Brownlow should receive some of the money when he came of age and the remainder when he reached 25 years. Upon coming into some of his inheritance on his twenty-first birthday, Brownlow agreed to pay some off his father’s debts and obtained a decree against Mr Bruce ordering a reassignment of the interest. Obviously fond of his half-brothers and sisters even though he had grown up at the Bertie estate of Grimsthorpe Castle in Lincolnshire, he agreed that £20,000 out of the £38,000 should be put aside for portions for these sisters.

Brownlow never reached his twenty-fifth birthday. He undertook the ‘Grand Tour’ in 1802 and at Gensano whilst on the road to Rome from Naples, armed banditti rushed out from the cover of a nearby wood and ambushed his carriage, murdering his servants and wounding Brownlow by slashing his arm with a sabre whilst they stole a ring from his finger. Leaving the dead behind they took Brownlow into the mountains, intending to hold him to ransom, but he died of his wounds and of shock three days later aged only 22 years. The other occupants of the carriage arrived, destitute of everything they owned, at Rome some days later, claiming that a post of troops on the road, there to ensure the safety of travellers, had refused to help them. Brownlow’s body was taken to Naples and thence on to England where he was buried, at Weybridge, on the 28th July 1819.

Brownlow Charles Colyear had left his father his entire property but he had died before the executory agreements on the settlement for his half-sisters had been carried into effect and this proved disastrous for those half-sisters. The money from the settlement had been invested in funds which were sold and Milsington, by now the Earl of Portmore had allowed his solicitor, Mr Sermon, to receive the proceeds and to pay Mr Bruce what he was owed. Of the £20,000 which had been promised, £19,000 remained in Mr Sermon’s hands and the seven natural Colyear children, of which Juliana was one, claimed their inheritance but the Countess of Mulgrave, the widow of the surviving trustee of the settlement, blocked this.

Juliana’s unmarried sister, Mary Ann Colyear, began a law suit in 1820 on behalf of her and her three sisters to recover this money. Their father, the Earl of Portmore, died in January 1835, after having made a second marriage in 1828 to Frances, daughter of William Murrells, and the legal case was still rumbling on. The Earl seemed to have changed his mind about the provision for his daughters; perhaps it had been a condition of his second marriage for his wife to have a settlement upon her but he now wanted to money to be used for her benefit. His sons were provided for, two having joined the East India Company’s army and Charles Frederick joining the regular army.

From: History of Lincoln, Oneida, and Vilas Counties Wisconsin (source):
Koth, Reinhold F. proprietor of the Winchester Store in Tomahawk, was born at Reeseville, Dodge, Wis., April 20, 1871, son of August and Louise Koth. The parents were natives of Germany who came to the United States in the late 60’s, Mr. Koth after settling in Reesevile being engaged in farming and blacksmithing, having a shop on his farm. There he subsequently died, and his wife, who survived him, passed away at Lowell, in the same, in 1915. She had married for her second husband Carl Rogga, by whom she had a daughter, Dora, who married Charles Railer and lives in California. Her children by August Koth were: Herman residing in Merrill; Edward, in Milwaukee; Anna, wife of John Huebner of Doyelestown, Wis., Reinhold F., of Tomahawk; George, of Des Moines, Ia.; Oscar, of Milwaukee; Martha, wife of August Lass of Milwaukee, and Louis of Gary, Ind.
 Reinhold F. Koth was reared on the home farm and educated in the district school. His summers up to the age of 18 were spent in agricultural employment, and then, in 1889, he left home and coming to Tomahawk began to learn the tinsmith’s trade with Lamb & Moore, for whom he worked for two years. During the next seven years he was in the employ of Axel Olson, after which he engaged in business for himself, starting a tin and plumbing shop, six months later adding hardware to his stock. This place he sold to the Northern Hardware Co. and was their manager for three years. Then he once more started in for himself and has since continued in the business. He carries a complete line of light and heavy hardware, McCormick and Deering farm implements, trucks, tractors, automobiles and accessories, all kinds of building materials, barn equipment, sewing machines, victrolas, clocks, watches, silverware, pipe and fittings, fertilizer and many other things, and is doing a large business. He also owns a plot of ground 300 x 1330 feet, lying close to Tomahawk, which he has platted as Koth’s Addition, and on which this season he will build cottages for rent and sale. He is a stockholder in the Bank of Tomahawk, the Tomahawk Shoe Manufacturing Co. and the Winchester Firearms Co. His fraternal society affiliations are with the Equitable Fraternal Union and the Maccabees. Mr. Koth was married in Tomahawk, April 19, 1896, to Allie Fogerty, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Fogerty, long time residents of Tomahawk. Their married life lasted only about 10 years, as Mrs. Allie Koth died in 1906, leaving one son, Lloyd, born in 1898. The latter entered the naval service of the United States in the World War and trained at Great Lakes, where he was stationed. In 1909 Mr. Koth married secondly, at Des Moines, Ia., Louise Boese, whose father died in Germany and whose mothers resides in Iowa.

Happy belated birthday to Leah Rowan Rice, who celebrated her 103rd birthday on Dec. 3.
 Born in 1910, Rice grew up in Montana. Due to World War I and a shortage of male workers, her mother worked as one of the first female telegraphers for Northern Pacific Railroad. Because of the work, Rice attended one-room school houses and lived in out-of-the-way locations throughout Montana. She later taught for two years in one of those schools but ultimately graduated from the University of Washington.
 Looking back, Rice takes pride in her work ethic. During World War II, she trained engineers at Boeing in Seattle. There she met Fred Rice, who she would marry. After the war, the couple moved to California.
 Rice now lives in Santa Cruz with her son Ben, his wife Tamyra and grandson David. She continues to be an important family member. Daughter Ronda lives nearby and son Doug lives in Bellevue, Wash. Seven grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and a golden retriever round out the family.
 Everyone who knows her knows her longstanding love of the San Francisco Giants and remarks on her good cheer, love of family and friends, and interest in political events. (Source: Santa Cruz Sentinel, December 27, 2013)

HAROLD “HAL” E. LARSEN (1934 - ) was born in Gowen, Michigan in 1934 and moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico to paint. His primary medium is acrylic on canvas or paper. His primary material, he will tell you, is “feelings”. Rather than depicting the world in a literal way, he says, “my work is about my feelings about the world.” Harold Larsen places himself squarely in the great Romantic tradition, and we hear an echo of Wordsworth’s dictum that good art arises from the spontaneous overflow of powerful emotions. To be sure, emotions are a persistent theme in Larsen’s work. But these emotions are never simply vented or unleashed upon the canvas. Instead, Larsen allows color, form and line to accumulate gradually, often layer upon layer. We are given a sense of inner exploration and discovery rather than eruption.
 Even when one mood or thought seems to dominate the surface, there is always the suggestion of much more lying underneath, hints of things half-buried, half-awakening, a mix of memory and desire, sometimes, quiescent, sometimes almost playful. In both subject and technique, Larsen shows strong affinities to major Abstract Expressionists and their precursors (he has a special affection for the Fauves). Equally profound influences can be found in the physical environment of Santa Fe, where Larsen has lived and painted for nearly 30 years. Even at his most abstract, he gives us unmistakable glimpses of northern New Mexico’s gorgeous light and air, its vast spaces and expanses of color, its sensuous curves and its sudden angularities. Harold Larsen’s work is represented in international, national and regional museums, as well as in notable private and corporate collections. It has been the subject of articles and chapters in a variety of arts publications over the past three decades.

Larsen family’s paintings created from desert’s colors, light
By Nisha Pulliam (Palm Beach Post Staff Writer) — The Palm Beach Post, Feb. 13, 1988.
Looking for a change of scenery? Go to the Hobe Sound Gallery to take in an exhibit of geological landscapes, paintings and pottery by a husband, wife and daughter team.
Hal, Fran and Kristen Larsen moved to New Mexico in 1976 for the very same reason – a change in scenery – and they haven’t tired of the desert and its Indian inhabitants yet.
It influences their work, though each has a distinct style.
“The land is so vast. I couldn’t contain it all in one piece,” said Hal Larsen, who puts his landscapes on triptychs. “Three pannels seemed so appropriate.”
“Ever since college I was intereseted in meso-American Indian cultures... this thing that happened in America,” his wife, Fran, said. “That’s why we moved to New Mexico in 1976. It’s something that is part of the spirituality of the area.”
“... I was doing architectural detail drawings in black and white and, at one time, Fran said she wouldn’t paint it if it didn’t go with brown,” Larsen said and laughed. “Now both of us have become colorists.”
The Larsens’ daughter, Kristen, a former Miss New Mexico, is a potter. She studied at the Institute of American Indian Art in Santa Fe during a summer session, the only time the school is open to non-Indians.
What makes the desert so special, artistically? [...]

Hartwell Blake knows daughter is in deep in Iraq
By Paul C. Curtis - TGI Staff Writer (April 10, 2003)

 Imagine how Hartwell Blake must have felt when he stumbled into the kitchen to make coffee one recent Sunday morning, clicked on the TV and heard that a U.S. Army maintenance company that included a woman had been captured in Iraq. His daughter, 1st Lt. Courtney Blake Sugai, is in an Army maintenance company in Iraq.
 "My heart hit the floor," he recalls. "I was hoping for the best, imagining the worst," and began to understand the feelings of family members of those killed in action, missing in action, or prisoners of war.
 The captured soldiers turned out to be from a unit other than Sugai’s, but her unit has had its share of close calls, too, said Blake, a former county attorney.
 "Initially, I tried to be fatalistic about it," knowing that his daughter and other soldiers are well-trained and well-armed, and that whatever happens happens, said Blake, 58.
 And that was working until he heard that a maintenance company had been captured. Sugai’s company is a maintenance unit, supplying drinking water, fuel and other supplies to the soldiers closer to the front lines, whom Blake calls "the trigger-pullers."
 Her 101st Airborne group is west of Baghdad, near the newly renamed Baghdad International Airport. The last time father and daughter talked, she told him she was in Iraq, but couldn’t tell him where. She told him to watch CNN and they’d tell him where she is, he said. Blake replied that if the cameras ever pan her way, shoot him the shaka sign so he’ll know it’s her. Sugai says, "We’re very, very careful about security," something that doesn’t necessarily give her father a secure feeling. Especially when he tells her that folks on Kaua’i are asking about her and praying for her safe return, and she replies, "I know, we’ve had some real, real close calls."
 Blake said he’s not sure if that’s good news or bad news. The father is also thankful for those prayers, "because that’s something you can’t have too much of," he said. In fact, Blake, who has never seen himself as particularly religious, starts his mornings with prayers not only for the safety of Sugai, but for friends here and elsewhere who also have children fighting a war. It hasn’t been all intensity for Sugai, who with some of her fellow soldiers posed for pictures with Geraldo Rivera a day before he was asked to leave Iraq.
 Sugai, a Kaua’i High School graduate who used to dance hula with Kumu Kapu Alquiza’s Na Hula O Kaohikukapulani, was born and raised on Kaua’i. Her mother is Rosemary Blake, now of Florida. Sugai’s husband, 1st Lt. Iven Sugai, is a native of Ewa Beach, O’ahu, and could be on his way to Iraq now to rejoin his unit, after finishing U.S. Army Ranger training.
 She has been sharing a tent with a French journalist embedded with her unit, and was able to borrow her satellite phone to call Blake in Koloa. He said the connection was better than most on-island connections, calling it "crystal clear." An e-mail he received from his daughter this week gives insight into one soldier’s view of the war. "My goal is to get my soldiers and myself home safe," she said. "Today I reflected on why we are here. It finally sunk in that I am not just here because I was ordered to come here," she said. "I actually realized that I want to he here to help the people in this country have a better life and rid them of this corruption and cruelty." She also said she is thankful to be able to continue the Blake tradition of serving in the armed forces. Her father fought in the Army in Vietnam, she has a brother in the service and other generations of Blakes were soldiers as well. At a Sunday church service, "I prayed that we, the soldiers, remember why we are here, and to remember to be selfless in our service to our country and to the world," she said. She also asked Blake to forward her e-mail to her friends, and thanked all those who have sent letters, care packages and other signs of support. When her unit deployed from Fort Campbell, Kentucky, she told her father, "I don’t want to go, but it’s my duty."
 Some of Sugai’s experiences, of frustration at not being able to keep the front-line troops supplied as well as they and she would like, reminded Blake of some of his similar experiences in Vietnam. So, he told his daughter to remember and reward those who helped her get supplies into the hands of the fighting soldiers. While some items are like gold, even sharing arare or Kaua’i Kookies with those who helped her will leave a lasting impression on the receivers of those goodies, Blake said. Finally, Blake took the interview opportunity to commend The Garden Island for telling the stories of Kaua’i war families. The newspaper articles put names and faces on the conflict, he said. "If any of these people don’t come back, or are horribly wounded, or missing in action, they shouldn’t just be some nameless, faceless statistic," he said. "People should know who these Kaua’i people are who didn’t come back, or didn’t come back whole."
