Thank you for sharing this additional history, Robert. Our past family histories are important, and it helps define who we later become. Stay safe and healthy, and keep remembering and sharing.
This was my Dad's family, but after they divorced my Mom stayed close to them. Her family is in Central Pennsylvania and except the year I was in 8th grade we never lived close enough to do more than visit in the summer every now and then. Her father was an Austrian Immigrant who started working in the coal mines at age 11. Her baby brother was a businessman and only millionaire in the family, one of her older brothers served several terms as County Sheriff.
Be safe and healthy.
