Notes for LENA ELIZABETH GOLDEN:
In her book from the funeral home was this poem.  Crossing the Bar. Sunset and evening star, And one clear call for me!  And may there be no mourning of the bar  When I put out to sea.  But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound or foam, When that which draw out from the boundless deep Turns again home.  Twilight and evening bell, And after the dark!  And may there be no sadness of farewell When I embark.  For though from out our bourne of time and place, The flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crossed the bar.  ALFRED TENNYSON   Hutchinson and Morton funeral Home 201 Bissell Ave.  Oil City Pennsylvania 16301.  Phone 814-644-7581  Funeral expenses for Mrs. Lena Foskey.  12-22-68 total funeral expenses of Mrs. Lena Foskey $1057.00.  Payments received 1-31-69 from Mrs. Blum $590; 3-5-69 from Mrs. Blum $30; 5-3-69 from Mrs. Mackey $437.  Paid in full.   Obituary in the Oil City Derrick  "Mrs. Foskey succumbs-- Mrs. Lena Foskey, 74, formerly of 17 and a half Kramer Ave., died at 6:12 P.M.  Sunday in the Garmong Convalescent Home.

  Her daughter Marquita Blum confirmed her birth date in a letter to her neice Mary Anne Mackey-Wisor in 1985.  She is buried in the Rockland cemetery, Lot 63, that is located down the road from Marquita and Jay Blum home.  Her granddaughter Nancy Sue is buried beside her. She was a psychic according to her daughters.  Her granddaughter Mary Anne was in the seventh grade at the time of her death.  She remembers going to the nursing home with her mother Dorothy and her sister Dorothy to see her grandmother and to say good bye.  When Lena's daughter Dorothy entered the room, Lena thought it was her mother Clara.   Then when her granddaughter Dorothy entered the room she thought it was her daughter Dorothy.  She did not know who Mary Anne was by that time. Mary Anne had a dream before her grandmother died. " In that dream she saw her grandmother in the coffin.  Then she saw three ladies that she did not know sitting on chairs at the funeral home.  These ladies each had on a hat.  After Lena died and was taken to the funeral home the family went to the viewing.  When Mary Anne entered the funeral home she saw her grandmother and the three ladies exactly as she had seen them in the dream.  She became hysterical and her mother had to calm her.  Different members of the family have had similar experiences during their lifetimes."  Her daughter Dorothy had many news clippings of an ax murder that occurred in Oil City.  It was the Graham family. " Aunt Norma remembers that when she was little her mother went to look for a new apartment.  She went to look at this house.  Norma overheard her mother talking to her step-father that she had gone to look at this house.  Lena told Lee that she could still see the blood spattered on the woodwork and the stairway.  There was no way that she would let her children live there.  Norma showed Mary Anne the house on April 5th, 1999.  She said it still gives her the creeps to go by it."   Norma told Mary Anne on April 1st, 1999 that when " she was about two or three that her mother would go next door.  There was a little old lady who lived next door that she called granny because she did not see her grandmother very much.  She said that they would hold seances.  Her mother Lena, Lenas sister Edith and sometimes their mother Clara would come.  They would sit around the table a tell stories.  Lean spoke a lot about some graveyard that she knew.  Norma would be frightened and curl up under the table on her mothers feet.  Even though she was so young she still remembered.  She began to speak of a terrible incident that happened with her mother Lena when Norma son was about 8 years old.  She was afraid to talk about it over the phone.  She said that she had not spoken of it for 30 years.  For some reason she had just mentioned to her son Ron who will be 39 next week.  He vividly remembers the occasion.  Norma says that they are the only two alive today that know about it.  She wants to tell Mary Anne but in person.  She said that it was pure evil.  Norma remembers praying over her mother's casket that she took her psychic powers with her.  She never spoke of it with her sisters."She said that " when her grandmother Clara died, she went with her mother to clean out her apartment in West field, New York.  Uncle Bill went back and forth in front of the apartment and never went in.  For some reason he was fighting with his sister Lena at the time.  They did not speak for several years."  Clara lived next door to her son.  1900 New York Census state that even though she was only 6 years old she had been to school for three years.   Norma states that her mother was a great movie buff and went to the movies a lot with her neighbor Mrs. Martin.  They called her grandma Martin.  One time they took Norma with them to the movies.  Norma said that her mother was really very inconsiderate.  They had to walk from one side of the city to the other and across a long bridge that had grates where you walked.  You could see the river below and the wind blew.  They were very poor so Norma had one a thin coat and small boots.  On the way home it was snowing and the slush was going down her boots.  Grandma Martin kept telling Lena to pick up Norma.  After she told her several times she picked her up.  Norma says that she would have never done so if grandma Martin had not kept after her.                                                                

Notes for OSCAR MOREHOUSE:
Dorothy thought that, her mother, Lena was never married to Oscar.  Dorothy was told that he was a street car conductor.  He was killed while driving the street car.   She was told that he was a Seminole Indian. Aunt Kitty ( Marquita Blum) states: " that they were married and that he contracted a virus from which he did not recover."  She wrote this to her niece Mary Anne Mackey-Wisor in 1986.

Notes for NORMAN JACOB REINHARDT:

Aunt Kitty (Marquita Blum) spells his last name Rhinehart.  She states that they were married. They called him Daddy Jake.  Aunt Kitty has no memory of him but she says that Dorothy always said he was a wonderful man and a great step-father.  He was the victim of Bright's Disease (Kidneys) and he died.  
Dorothy thought that Jake and Lena were never married.  She believed he had another family.   She remembered that night he died in bed.  His picture hung in their home for many years until Lena began to get dementia.  She burned all of her papers that she had in a trunk.
 On a visit with Mary Anne Mackey-Wisor and Dorothy Shaffer on 11-12-2001.  His daughter Norma states that Lena was taken into custody because they thought she had poisined him.  She states that he was 29 years old when he died and that he was in the Merchant Marines. He wore a straw hat. She has a picture of him in his uniform. She also has a business card which states that he was a Salesman.  Norma feels he is born in Buffalo Cemetery. She continues that his mother was German and could not speak any English.  Lena could not communicate with her.  After they moved to Oil City her grandmother Clara sent her mother a newsclipping that Daddy Jake's mother had gotten her head chopped off by a trolley in Buffalo.
  Aunt Norma says that Lee never legally adopted them.  Dorothy was already in school and when it came time for Kitty and Norma to go their mother did not want them to all have different names.  When she enrolled them in school it was under the name Foskey.  Later when she went to apply at the Oil Well the guards were called to have her arrested.  The reason was becasue she said her name was Foskey but her birth certificate had Reinhardt.  Reinhardt was a hated name because there was a big General that served in World War One.  They thought she was trying to disquise herself.  The manager came in who happened to be old Mr. Hershelman who endedup being Aunt Isabelle Mackey's father-in-law.  He said that he knew the family well and that there was no problem which saved Aunt Norma from being investigated.  Aunt Norma says he was buried in the Buffalo Cemetery.
  Forest Lawn Cemetery there is a lot holder G.A. Reinhardt.

Notes for LOUIS W. YOUNG:

  The 1921 99.1 Buffalo Directory Buffalo Collection F129B8A18 "Lena Young widow of Louis r 139 Genesee Street."
  Dorothy states that he was a wheelman. (It also states that on Kitty's birth certificate). He was shot and killed in Tennessee.  Norma feels he was a merchant marine just like her father was.
  Aunt Kitty (Marquita Blum) states: " that Lena was married to Louis and that they had twins, Marquita Louise and a brother Leonard.  She says that Louis worked on a river boat.  He was in an accident and all aboard were drowned.  Her brother Leonard was adopted by neighbors.  Lena thought that the girls should stay together.  They would eventually marry and have husbands to care for them."  This was in a letter that she wrote to Mary Anne Mackey-Wisor in 1995.
  There is a lot holder in Forest Lawn Cemetery, Buffalo, New York named C.E. Young.

Notes for LEE FOSKEY:
  Aunt Kitty stated that after daddy Jake died, Lena returned to Oil City.  A few months later she married Lee.  Aunt Kitty feels that marrying him was the worst mistake for her mother and the children.  She states: "He was a no Gooder, and Lena had to support the whole family, including Lee."  She says that he never worked too hard.  Dorothy would stand up to him and protect Kitty and Norma.  On July 24th 2000 Norma Disharoon spoke about Lee. She states that "He was a quiet man who did not talk very much.  She said he worked hard getting up early in the morning to walk several blocks to where he would be painting.  Norma said it was just not because of her mother that Lee was strict but because of her older sister Dorothy.  Dorothy was going with Sam but broke up with him and had an affair with Roger Martin the superintendent of the schools.  After she had broken up with him and married Sam. Lee was stricter with Norma and Kitty."  He adopted Marquita Young and Norma Lena Reinhart.  He did not adopt Dorothy because she refused.  Later Mary Anne Mackey-Wisor found our that he had ot legally adopted any of them.  When Norma and Kitty started school their mother Lena just put their last name as Foskey. Dorothy was alreasy in school so she could not change her name.
  On september 17th 2001 Joseph Mackey and his sister Mary Anne visited with Aunt Norma.  Joe remembers grandpa Lee as a fantastic wallpaperer.  Aunt Norma said that when she got her firsat apartment she wanted it done like she saw in a magazine.  The apartment was not very nice but when he was done like a showcase.  Lee did the ceiling and evertything.  You could not see any seams.  The landlord was very impressed.  Of course it improved his property.  Joe remembers some big green gob of something.  Aunt Norma said it was some type of ball that Lee used to clean the wallpaper.
  On November the 12th 2001, Dorothy told Aunt Norma that she remembers grandpa Lee sitting beside an old radio listening to a program and leaning on a cane. They lived by a creek.  Grandpas Lee told her to be careful she did not fall in the creek.  Norma said that was on Seneca Street where the Buyers Fair is located now.  She said Lee loved to listen to the Lone Ranger on the radio. Norma took all of her savings so she could buy Lee a TV.  He would watch the Lone Ranger. One day when she came home there were colored folks in the house with Lee watching the World Series.  Lee hated Negros.  He was from the South.  But for some reason they became good friends.  They would set on the porch and visit and sometimes they took him for a ride.  After awhile the TV made him too nervous to watch.  It sort of made Aunt Norma mad after she had spent all her savings on it.  Granpa died while they lived on Seneca street.

Marquita Blum his twin sister wrote in a letter to Mary Anne Mackey-Wisor:  "Mom lived near a couple that could not have children.  They wanted to adopt my brother.  Mom agonized over this, but consented.  Her reasoning was as the only boy, she wanted the best for him.  These people were A-One, and could give him all the advantages, and would always be cared for.  Mom wanted to keep us girls together. She said we would probably marry, would have husbands to care for us.  I know that it must have broken her heart.  My grandmother kept telling me she knew someone who looks just like me.

Notes for WILLIAM GEORGE GOLDEN:
 To find their house you cross the bridge going south of town.  You turn left as soon as you cross the bridge, go 3 miles and turn left onto Odgen Road.  It is the second or third house on the right before the fish and game land.    Dorothy Shaffer took her mother to see Uncle Bill about 1975.  He was so happy to see her.  While they were visiting Dorothy had to go to the bathroom and Uncle Bill gave her a flashlight and told her to use the outhouse.  She went out and could not find it and went behind a bush.  Later her mother had to go to the bathroom and took the flashlight to the out house.  on the way home Dorothy asked mom if she found the out house.  She said No, she had gone behind the bush too.  Before they left he went to the fruit cellar and gave them squash and big apples.  They did not know how to cook the squash and Uncle Bill told them how.  When they went home they cooked and said it was very good.  The farmhouse was very old and they sat infront of a fireplace to keep warm.   According to Norma Disharoon in a conversation with her niece Mary Anne Easter weekend April 1st 1999.    "Uncle Bill had many antiques which were original Lincoln furniture, an old organ, postcards of Oil City, and old coins.  She said that he had a picture of Aunt Ruth in her Wedding dress and he still had  the dress in a trunk in the attic.  She ask him one time when she was little why he did not sell the items and he said he was not interested in money."  Norma was afraid of him and thought he was mean. " He had a crippled leg because he had fallen down when he was a child and arm.  He was always in pain.  He was unable to work very much and his wife Ruth was the breadwinner of the family."  On the contrary her sister Dorothy Mackey loved him dearly.  He was her favorite Uncle.  At the time of his death his son Gorge lived in Euclid, Ohio.  His granddaughter name is Sharon Pfoh.    "On page two of the Westfield Republican weekly newspaper dated May 6th 1982.  Published in Westfield, New York.  His wife was Ruth Warner Golden.William G.

Notes for ROBERT L. GOLDEN:

Aunt Ruth wrote to my mother, Dorothy Morehouse Mackey, about the loss of her son.  The letter was dated 7/27/50.  She thought my mother had heard from Libby or Myrtle.  She said that : "she was so shocked and upset we hardly knew what to do.  And your Uncle Bill was so socked and upset he didn't know what was going to happen, or if he could get through a big funeral or not, and whether to notify anyone or not.  And mistakenly assumed Libby had notified Kitty or you without definitely telling her to do so, and she didn't whether she should or not..... He slipped and fell off a crate which was set on end on an uneven floor (in the barn).  In falling he struck his face against a small box he had suspended by a small rope from a beam above (in Horse stable).  Evidently it knocked the box out of the loop, catching him in it, breaking his neck.  When your Uncle Bill found him, the crate he had slipped off from was leaning against his back, and the rope was holding him up, with his knees a few inches from the floor.  The little box was lying upside down on the floor with one kitten still under it, and the old bag he had put in the bottom for them to lie on.  The bottom of the box was broken and forced outward as Tho by his fist when he fell.  His face was bruised (which it hadn't been when we last saw him alive, and the upper end of the crate had nail scratches from his shoes, showing where he had slipped.  There were also several other crates which he had piled around the kittens dish so that he could feed them without their mother being able to steal it all away from them, which she would do if she got a chance, no matter how much she had of her own.  The coroner had already made up his mind to 'another suicide' before he even got here; and made no examination of Bob, or the place where it happened; and we were too shocked to realize what an awful story they were making of it on the radio and in the newspapers..... We all miss him terribly as he was such a happy, lively, cheerful, thoughtful, and busy little helper in so many ways.  And he was so pleased to think he was getting big and strong enough to take over some of the outdoor work I had to do before, such as riding potato planter and cultivator; and Bill had let him drive the tractor a few times.  He liked his 4-H and school work very much, and had learned to roller skate and had a bicycle to ride, and I was planning to learn to swim and ride horse back and was    He was looking forward to joining the school band in the fall as he liked music too.  And in addition to all this he whittled and carved innumerable toys and articles that he had studied out from Popular Mechanics Magazine or papers as well as doing considerable reading.  Never seemed to be at a loss for something to do.  I sure miss him at every turn, as I could always depend on his being here, except when he was a school, whether Bill or George were or not; and he was always so cheerful and thoughtful, and always willing to help out at whatever needed done."

  The Westfield Republican reported on August 9, 1950 that "Robert Golden, 12, son of Mr. and Mrs. William G. Golden, Ogden Road, was found dead by his father Monday at 3:45 P.M. in the barn at the Golden Farm.  The little boy, a member of the Lombard Handy Gang 4-H Club was the winner of many prizes for superb vegetables.  He would have entered the sixth grade in September at the Westfield Academy and Central Hugh School.
 Besides his parents, he is survived by one brother, George Golden at home, his maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Warner, Beech Hill and several aunts.
 The funeral will be held at the Carpenter Funeral Home.  Thursday at 2 P.M. with the Rev. Lester Hunt officiating.  Interment will be in Westfield Cemetery."

She was born in Westfield New York.  Lena's mother lived in Buffalo at the time and sent Lena home to her grandmother.  Dorothy was born in a building that used to be an old chicken coop.  She celebrated her birthday on June 28th all of her life.  When she went to apply for her social security her birth certificate stated June 29th. She was born very close to midnight.  Her mother thought the 28th and the doctor wrote the 29th.  After that her children used to tease her and have two birthdays.    Dorothy and her mother Lena were hospitalized  in Ernest Wene Hospital in Buffalo, New York, March 3rd, 1917, with Scarlet fever.   Dot was there for 43 days and Lena was there 30 days. Mrs. Clara Jackson Dot's grandmother came and signed her out of the hospital and took her home. (Mary Anne has a copy of the discharge papers in her mother's file)  They lived at 93 Genesee Street in Buffalo.  Dorothy remembered that her mother had long black hair that almost touched the floor.  When they were admitted Lena was put in a straight jacket and all her hair was cut off.  She remembered seeing her mothers' long locks of hair fall to the floor as she screamed. Lena was so delirious that she escaped from the straight jacket and had to be separated from her daughter and put into confinement.  This sight lived with her the rest of her life even though she was only five years old at the time. Dorothy remembered being put in several washtubs of different colors (of antiseptic) before she could leave the hospital with her grandmother.  Their last name was signed MOOREHOUSE.     Dorothy received an award in 3rd grade from the Department of Instruction City of Buffalo, Jan. 1923 school # 31. ( A copy of the certificate is in her file.)It was for excellence in writing.  Dorothy had beautiful handwriting all her life.  When she was a child in school the teachers would tie her left hand behind her back so she would use her right hand.  But she remained left handed.  Another incident that Dorothy spoke was when she ran out into the street coming home from school.  She ran between two parked cars.  Dorothy was hit and had a hole in her skull that was stuffed with cotton.  She always had a soft spot there.  She was in a brand new dress and was afraid that her mother was going to be mad at her for getting it dirty and running out into the street without looking.      As a child she was emotionally abused by her different step-fathers and may have been physically abused.  She talked of being shut out of her house by Mr. Young.  He would lock the door and she would walk a few blocks to her grandmother Clara's house. This was in a bad part of the city of Buffalo along the docks.  She said that after moving to Pennsylvania they lived in Foster homes that were arranged through the salvation army in Oil City.     Dorothy was a life long member of the  girl scouts.  She maintained her membership with the keystone talltree girl scout council.  A copy of a signed card dated May 1964 is located in her file.     Dorothy said that her sister Norma's dad was the one she loved the most.  She called him Daddy Jake.  My sister Dorothy Mackey Shaffer saw a certificate in our attic that  was an award from the salvation army and it had the name Dorothy Reinhardt. Obviously she had thought of him as a dad to write his last name as her own during that part of her life.  We could  not find the certificate after she died.    They moved to Fertigs Pennsylvania and lived with Lena's sister Edith.  This was a big change going from a city school to a one room schoolhouse.  Dorothy was very shy.  The first day of class the teacher made her stand in front of the class which was a very frightening experience for her.   They also lived in Conneaut, Ohio.  Most of her life was spent in Oil City, Pennsylvania.   " The Senior Class of Oil City High School Commencement Exercises Friday evening, June twelfth eight o'clock at the Drake Theater in Oil, City Pennsylvania." Graduation Announcement.  Invitation is enclosed in her file.    Dorothy and Sam dated for ten years.  Dorothy broke up with his for awhile and dated a Roger Williams or Roger Martin, a teacher at the high school.  He taught her many things that she had never had the chance to do. One example was to ride a horse.  She also had several pieces of beautiful jewelry that he gave her.  Her best friend was Miss Pinney another teacher.  They did many things together.   One was learning how to Swim.  Something happened between them.  Miss Pinney married and moved to Coudersport, Pennsylvania.   Dorothy joined Rocky Grove Presbyterian Church under Rev. Moorehead, Clerk of session Leo Richards.  She was an avid reader often starting a book and not putting it down until it was finished.  She was an expert in crochet.     Places that Sam and her lived during their married lives 33 1/2 Graff Street November 1939-May 1942; 48 Washington Street Franklin, Pa May 1942 to April 1943.; 140 Maple St. Rocky Grove April 6, 1943-Sept. 7, 1944.; 224 Maple Street Rocky Grove Sept. 7, 1944 to March 1951, 214 Elm St. Rocky Grove 1951 to date of death in 1983.    As appeared in the Oil City Derrick Newspaper and is enclosed in her file.  " Local Woman badly burned.  Dress Ignites from open flame while bathing her baby.  Mrs. Samuel Mackey, of 24 Halyday Street, is a patient in the Oil City hospital suffering from serious burns sustained Wednesday when her dress caught fire from an open stove in the bathroom of the family residence while she was bathing her infant child.     Hospital officials said today that Mrs Mackey is suffering from second degree burns.  Her condition today is said to be fair, and she is expected to recover.     Mrs. Mackey sustained the burns Wednesday morning.  She was in the act of leaning over her baby when her dress swept into the flames and caught fire.     Flames enveloped her instantly and she received severe burns before she managed to extinguish the flames.  She was rushed to the hospital, where it was found the blaze had seared her from the bottom of her dress to her neck.    Hospital representatives said that though the burns are exceedingly painful and Mrs. Mackey suffered shock, her condition is not critical today, and barring complications her recovery is expected.  She will probably have to remain at the local institution for several weeks."   Dorothy's favorite entertainer was Bing Crosby.  When she spoke about him Sam would get jealous.  When she died their was an autographed picture and a news clipping celebrating 40 years of show business in her drawer.
         Marquita Blum in a letter to her niece Mary Anne, after Dorothy had died, stated:  Dorothy really had to go through a lot!  All these siblings and heartache!  But -  let no one, NO ONE, say we were half-sisters, because we would have had a battle!  We were sisters - period!  Dorothy took us under her 'wing ', and was our tender care giver.  We loved her devotedly.  Oh! she could have a TEMPER, at times but they weren't aimed at us.  Mostly - Lee (step-father).  She told him that he should be supporting us, not Mom having to do it.  Norma and I loved her, and still miss her after all these years.  She is safe in his arms, I know!  Your Mom was very intelligent woman.  When she graduated, she was chosen to be secretary for the Principal of the Senior High School.  What and honor!"  The letter is enclosed in Kitty's file
    Dorothy was a housewife and her greatest joy was to be a good mother.  Before she was married she worked as a secretary for the Oil City High School in Oil City.  She was the 5th cousin of Abraham Lincoln according to family tradition.    A week before my mother died in 1983,  I went and spent a week with her and the following information she gave to me about her family.  Mary Anne has a tape recording but it is very hard to understand Mom.  Her speech is really slurred and her memory was not good for example she gave me the wrong color for her eyes. Also I was new to interviewing and I rushed her too much.  "Some of the special times she remembers are getting married, having five children, going fishing at Lake Erie .  Dorothy was called the peninsula kid playing on the beach. 'What was a special memory dad shared with you about his mother? ' He never talked too much about his mother.  He was kinda quiet. She talked to him about Ireland. "What was a memory that Daddy shared about his father?' The only thing I remember is that when dad turned 16 his father told him it was time to go to work.  He started to work in the foundry. 'What were some of Daddy's favorite things to do?  I do not know.  'How did you learn to cook.  I just had to learn because I did the biggest share of cooking at home.  When I was in high school and things and do the washing and things.  When I got home from school I had to go and get the meat stuff we did not have an ice   box.  I had to go and get it at the store and come home and cook the supper. 'What favorite foods do you remember most? ' I remember chicken and lemon pie, I loved lemon pie, lemon meringue pie,  that's about everything!  'What was your favorite family dinner that you used to cook?'  Iused to cook roast chicken, beef roast.   'What was something that you used to enjoy cooking?'  I liked to cook tollhouse cookies and lemon meringue pie. Louis Young used to put me out of the house when he came home from the ships.  He was shot and killed somewhere down south.  My mom may have had other children that were adopted probably boys because she thought she needed to take of the girls.  Lena, my mother had some kind of deed for a place in New.  It said that she could live there as long as she was alive.  I also lived in Conneaut Ohio.  My mom used to feed the hobos that got off of the train.  They marked our house somehow and knew that the occupants would be open to feeding them.  "Where did you live when you left Buffalo? " We lived with my Aunt in Fertigs. Pennsylvania. " What schools did you attend?"  I went to school in Buffalo, Fertigs, Gay Street, Lincoln High School in Oil City.  When we moved to Fertigs I was used to going to school in the big city but in Fetigs its was a one room shoolhouse.  I was very shy and the first day the teacher told me to go to the recitetation table.  I did not know what that was and was so embarrased.  After the kids laughed and I went up front I had to receit the lesson which was also embarrasing.  I was so glad when we moved to Oil City and I went to school in a classroom. " What was Gram's fuill name?"  Claire or you mean my grandmother? "No I mean your mother? "  Lena Elizabeth Golden, I called her mom.  "Where wa she born?"  I guess in Westfield.  I do't remember how tall she was but I know she got up to 200lbs.  I can't remember if her hair was brown or black.  I do not remember the color of her eyes.  "What do you remember most about her?  (Laughing) She liked to play BINGO. (Laughed a lot more.)   I do not know my father's full name or what he looked like just that he was a street car conductor, I think ! "What pets did you have?"  I had a collie dog named Lassie.  I loved him so very much.  He used to follow me to school and then when school was over he would come and meet me.  We used to give him rides in the wagon.  In OIl City we had a cat taht we weould give rides in our carriage. " What memories do you have of school?"  Right now not much really. "She   had told Bill and I that she had written a play about Hiawathia."  She says today that she was in the play and played the lead. "What were your main responsibilities as you were growing up?"  Taking care of my sisters, work around the house, scrub down the stairs, scrub the floors, do the dishes.  Mom sold doghnuts and she had regular customers and I had to deliver them.  "What was your favoprite home/"  right here (But her children all knew that it was the  house on Maple Street that was her favorite!
they moved to elm street temporarily and lived there over 30 years.)  "Who were your best friends?"  Iva Baum who lived in OIl City. "I never heard you mention her before."  You didn't.  We used to play together a lot especially jump rope together.  I liked to jump rope , roller skate.  I wasn't allowed to do very much.  Aunt Edith and I liked to go to the amusement park and

    Sam's best friend was George Netzler who lived at 214 Elm Street.  Sam and Dorothy moved into his apartment upstairs.   When they had to leave the house they were renting on Maple street, he let them move in temporarily until they were able to find another home.  They lived there the rest of their lives which was at least 30 years.  George and Sam used to like to go to the drive in to see Betty Grable, their favorite actress.  Dorothy took care of Mr. Netzler when he became ill.  She cooked and cleaned for him.  She would help get a bath.  He had may children and none of them helped.  He told Sam and Dorthy that he was going to leave the house to them but when he died the family came and threw pictures, papers, etc out the attic window and set them on fire. Sam would have loved to have the pictures of his friend. He died on April 30th, 1963.  The will was never found.  Mary Anne remembers sitting on the front porch swing with him when it rained.  He would have her count the bubbles.  He said the big bubbles were the only ones you could count.  If you could count 30 bubbles then the rain would stop.  Mr. Netzler loved to take Mary Anne and Dorothy for rides in his car.  He would find the roads in the country that were very bumpy then he would drive as fast as he could so tat it would make their stomachs fly.  They would giggle and he would take them again and again.  Mary Anne and a neighbor girl Brenda Baker found a baby bird that had fallen out of it's nest.  They took it to show him and it got away.  Mary Anne tried to catch it as it went behind a hamper and accidently stepped on it.   She cried and cried.  He took her little 5 year old hand and took her in the back yard and helped her burry it.  They had a little funeral.  The Mackey family loved him as their own grandfather.

Notes for JOHN EDWARD MACKEY:
   He was born in the Oil City Hospital.  His complexion is as fair as his brother Joe's is dark.  His mother always said that he never grew very tall because he used to carry rocks in his pockets and a pocketbook full of rocks.  His little sister Mary Anne was three years old when he graduated from high school.  She knew that something special was happening.  She went to the elderly neighbors yard next door and picked their prize tulips.  She gave hem to her bother John.  Her mother was so angry that she made her little girl go next door and go on the front porch where the neighbors were sitting and apologize.  She never picked another bunch of flowers without asking first.  (I, Mary Anne, still can remember the incident very vividly.)
      As appeared in the News Herald Newspaper in Franklin, Pennsylvania.

     "The Senior Class of Rocky Grove High School announces its Commencement Exercises Tuesday evening, June the third at eight o'clock in the Rocky Grove Auditorium.  1958"  A copy of the announcement is in his file
    "He received a Western Union School diploma at Washington, New Jersey on October 27, 1961 and graduated as Manager.    He worked for Western Union, as a relief manager, in New York City and the Pocono Record News paper, in Stroudsburg, where he has held many titles over the years.   John began work at the Pocono Record in 1965 as a printer's assistant.  He became night foreman in the composing room in 1973 and moving to the day foreman job in 1978.  He was named computer systems manager in 1979.  He has taken classes in computers from CSI, DEC, and SSI.  He has also studied electronics at Lincoln Tech in Allentown, has taken management training with American Press Institute, and also has taken management training with American Press Institute, and has also taken a business equipment course from NCR. "  A copy is in his file of the news clipping  
    This appeared in the Pocono Record Newspaper in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania 18630 on June 3rd, 1984. "John E. Mackey former computer systems manager of the Pocono Record, has been named production director, Record Publisher Frank Perretta announced.
    Mackey, of Stroudsburg, will replace James Murphy, who held the post for 37 years before retiring.
    Mackey, a Franklin native, came to the Record in 1965 as a printer's apprentice.  He was named night Foreman in the composing room in 1973, moving to the day Foreman's post in 1978.   He was named computer systems manager in 1979.
    Mackey has taken courses in computers from CSI, DEC, and SSI, the current system used in The Record.  He has also studied electronics at Lincoln Tech in Allentown, has taken management training with American Press Institute, and has also taken a business equipment course from NCR.
    As a production director, Mackey will oversee the production of the paper, including the  composing room, press room and computer systems." A copy of this news clipping is in his file.
    Editorial in the Pocono Record.  "Residents did the borough proud.  President Carter will participate in a 'Town Meeting in Bangor, Maine, late this month as part of a two day visit through New England.  
    He would have done better to drop in at the Stroudsburg Council Meeting Wednesday night.  It may have been a bit raucous and emotional at times, but it was a good picture of democracy in action as you will find anywhere... Bangor Maine included.
    The sheer size of the turnout 115 by our head count, up to 150 by others'  --  shows that people do care about the community.  They want to see it proper but not at the sacrifice of the quality of life within its bounds.  And they get aroused when something appears to threaten that quality.
    The Borough Council's action was the only possible one from several standpoints, not the least of which was political:  It would have been foolhardy indeed to vote against the overwhelming public sentiment displayed at the meeting.  Just the same, those councilmen who changed their stands and voted against opening the way for a bus terminal on Main Street deserve notice, for their's was a courageous act:  The hardest thing to do is to admit you may have been wrong.
     That we are pleased with the decision goes without saying.  That we are pleased with the way Stroudsburg residents rallied to 'their ' town and shopping center should be said.  With such a spirit, we're confident the borough's leaders can count on support, suggestions and advice as Stroudsburg girds itself to meet the challenges and changes the future."  by John Mackey
    Another editorial in the Pocono Record written by John Mackey and enclosed in his file. " Help snow crews  Alternate side of  street parking ...  a host of summonses in the hands of patrolmen and meter maids ... strict ordinances enacted by borough council .. constant patrolling of streets... several dozen tow trucks .. and a free hand by the traffic task force (along with a partridge in a pear tree?)
    That would be just a start in the list of items needed by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and Stroudsburg and East Stroudsburg road crews to combat another "Pocono Blizzard of '78 like the one that socked us two week ago.
    Knowing how impossible a task our unheralded road crews face isn't enough.  Try helping them out, too.  Even if available machinery and manpower are on hand, without the hep of residents .. every one of you - removing snow and ice form our streets is impossible.
    One of the biggest problems faced has to be the abandoned or stalled vehicle left or stranded along our streets.  How can you plow around these vehicles without ending up with a job half done?
   'What can I do to help,' should be the question on everyone's mind.  For starters - leave a note on a windshield explaining why your car is there and where you might be reached to move it.
    Better yet, keep the car off the street, if you can at all manage it.  Don't forget, the threat of fire or emergency also looms - and dealing with either one isn't any easier with blocked or snow clogged streets."  by John Mackey Saturday February 4th, 1978.
    He belongs to Saint John's Lutheran Church in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania.

30.  NORMA LENA6 REINHARDT (LENA ELIZABETH5 GOLDEN, CLARA ELIZABETH4 VANCISE, MARY HANNAH3 LINCOLN, DAVID2, ALFRED1) was born July 16, 1922 in Buffalo, New York.  She married BOBBY-GENE DISHAROON December 13, 1956 in Franklin, Venango County, Pennsylvania 16323, son of JAMES DISHAROON and BEULAH NEWBERRY.  He was born July 01, 1928 in Cleveland, Bradley County, Tennesee, and died August 08, 1993 in Oil City, Venango County, Pennsylvania.

Notes for NORMA LENA REINHARDT:
  Norma states that her mother was a great movie buff and went to the movies a lot with her neighbor Mrs. Martin.  They called her grandma Martin.  One time they took Norma with them to the movies.  Norma said that her mother was really very inconsiderate.  They had to walk from one side of the city to the other and across a long bridge that had grates where you walked.  You could see the river below and the wind blew.  They were very poor so Norma had one a thin coat and small boots.  On the way home it was snowing and the slush was going down her boots.  Grandma Martin kept telling Lena to pick up Norma.  After she told her several times she picked her up.  Norma says that she would have never done so if grandma Martin had not kept after her.   
  Aunt Norma writes in April 1995:  " I can't remember childhood but I do remember we liked to play dolls but mostly we liked to dress the poor cat and wheel him around instead of the dolls. Dorothy was our 'Mother'. She was the one who got us up for school and breakfast and our bath and dressed and out the door!  I used to get fainting spells in the morning and she would take me out on the porch in the 'snow' in my pj's and cover me with snow!  I would come in blue and freezing.  It's a wonder I always had a bad cold.  Kitty has all the pictures and things."
    The graduation announcement of Miss Norma Foskey reads; The class of 1940, Oil City High School announces the Commencement Exercises, Thursday evening, June the 6th at 7:45 o'clock at Drake Theatre.
  On 11-12-2001 Aunt Norma told Dorothy Shaffer and Mary Anne Mackey-Wisor that after graduation her mother took her up to Uncle MIlton's in Westfield New York.  She used to sit on the front porch swing with her cousin Donald Strain.  But Uncle Milton disapproved and sent him home.  She spent a couple of weeks there.  Uncle Milton had a cottage on Lake Chautauqua.  She would go there.  She was in charge of watching her Aunt Barbara's sister who was mentally retarded.  They got along famously.  Uncle MIlton had a big boat that would come right up to his dock and take them for a ride and swimming.  It was amazing because she was so poor.
  As a teenager Aunt Norma was in their attic.  Gram had a large trunk and had always told the girls that they were never allowed to open it.  Aunt Norma opened it and foun Aunt Kitty's birth certificate and realized that they were only half sisters.  She knew Dorothy was but she thought Kitty was also a Reinhardt. What a devasting discovery in the attic.  Before her mother died she tried to talk to her about it.  Lena only screamed and hollered and refused to tell her anything about her past. My grandmother Lena became very demented possible with alzheimer's before she died.  Aunt Norma had lived with her all of her life.  One day she came home form work and Lena had set fire to all the papers in the trunk that would have told them about their fathr's etc.  All was lost and Gram would not talk about it.
  Norma worked at the Oil Glass Company in Oil City. She is Presbyterian.When Aunt Norma went to apply for her job they sent for the guards because her name was Norma Foskey and her birth certificate said Norma Reinhardt. Old Mr Hershelman which ended up being Aunt Isabelle Mackey's father-in-law, came in and told the guards that it was O.K.  He knew the family very well and knew that Aunt Norma was ot trying to disquise herself.  It seems that in World War One there was a famous general on the opposite side named Reinhardt and it was a name that many Americans were afraid of.  Mr. Hershelman kept her from being arrested and investigated.  Aunt Norma said that she had never thought anything about it because she had gone by Norma Foskey since she started school.   Aunt Norma said that when her mother went to live with Aunt Kitty all the family pictures, obituaries, etc all went to her house.  She said that there is a picture of her with her mom and Lee on the front porch on Grove Ave. in Oil City.  She would dearly love a copy of that picture. They were never offically adopted by Lee Foskey, Gram just wrote that as their last name when they entered school.

Notes for BOBBY-GENE DISHAROON:
Uncle Bob has a son Daniel Disharoon who lives in Cleveland, Tennessee.  His mother is Beulah Newberry Disharoon who lives in Cleveland, Tenn.  He has a sister named June Johnson of 2935 Bobo Ave N.W. Cleveland, TN.  37311.  He was a Merchant Marine an able Seaman. He was a Baptist. His father's name is James William Disharoon.   He was in the Navy October 1945-1949 and the Army 1950-1952.  The funeral was on August 11, 1993 at 11 A.M. It was held at the Morrison Funeral Home in Oil City, Pennsylvania.  The services were conducted by the Rev. Lyle L. Langdon.  His final resting place is in Rockland Cemetery.  He is buried beside his daughter Nancy Sue and his mother-in-law Lena Foskey. According to Aunt Norma in a letter to Mary Anne October 2002; "Bob's father went out the door when Bob was only a small boy and never came back.  They never heard from him again and thought he had died in a fire in Florida.  Now after all these years Lou has found out that every time we went and visited them in Tennessee of when they came here.  They passed the town where he was living all those years. He had remarried and had children.  How about that!  When mom Disharoon was alive she wouldn't let them talk about him so they never traced him as they weren't allowed to. She promised to write and tell me more as here telephone rang. Isn't life strange!!"

Notes for NANCY SUE DISHAROON:
Nancy was Mary Anne Mackey-Wisor' little cousin and she loved Barbie dolls.  Mary Anne had given her the doll house made of cardboard, many shoes, clothes and accessories which she enjoyed as much as me.

(This was in the Oil City Derrick Newspaper)  "The cold, winter end of life with its low sun foretelling nightfall's soon descent is but the forward to the Book of Life whose pages open with the burst of heaven's Spring upon a new and glorious world warmed by rays of love from the Sun of Righteousness who is "risen with the healing in his wings".  "Pallbearers were Brent Lockwood, Ron Healy, Robert Sargeant, Michael Blum, James Hosey and Kevin Gensler.  Members of the Oliers Marching Band acted as honorary pallbearers.    Those who attended the funeral were Mr. and Mrs Claude Wallace and June Johnson of Cleveland , Tenn., Mr. and Mrs R.C. Pickel of Akron, Ohio;, and Mr. and Mrs. Rick Alinger of Stow, Ohio. She is buried next to her grandmother Lena Golden Foskey.  
  "Her death was like a knife hitting me in the chest.. It happened so quickly..  I didn't have time with her shortly before she died.  I Used to talk, play, tease, pick on, insult, fight with her just like a sister.. We used to be together all the time until I told her I need to be free from her for awhile before I was to see her again, and be with her most of the time..  But.. she died suddenly.  I wish I could be with her all the time before she died... Why?  Why didn't she tell me... I wonder?  Well.. I guess she didn't want to upset me.  I was stubborn with her... We were close... Closing my eyes: Tears were coming down on my cheeks, knowing that she's no longer with me here now...  But I am glad...  For she's now well-alive again... not on earth, here though.. She's somewhere beyond the world... I'll always miss my friend, Nancy Disharoon."  Sadly missed by a deaf Freind.  Paula E. Battin.  We wish to express our deepest gratitude to all our friends and neighbors for flowers, food and cards and memorials sent at the time of loss of our beloved daughter.  Special thanks to the Oil City Firefighters, Ambulance Service, Police, Doctors and Nurses at ICU, Dr. Stuart Shapiro and the Rev. Robert Smith.  To the students and teachers of Oil City High School and the Honorary Pallbearers, the Oil City Marching Band, our sincere thanks.
  It is such a comfort to know so many people share our loss.  The Disharoon Family."  This appeared in the Oil City Derrick.  The history of psychic abilities continues in a story told by Norma's Disharoon to Mary Anne on April 1st, 1999. " Norma states that when Nancy was in the Pittsburgh hospital they returned home to Oil City for some rest.  While they were there they received a call from the hospital that Nancy was worse and that they needed to come immediately.  Uncle Bob was too tired to drive so Ron volunteered.  Uncle Bob was very demanding and when he spoke especially to Ron he expected him to obey immediately.  Aunt Norma said that this was especially true when they were in the car.  They got behind a car that was going slower than Uncle Bob felt it ought to be so he yelled at Ron to go around it.  Aunt Norma said that as she sat in the back that she could not understand why Ron would not go around the car,  Uncle Bob continued to yell but Ron refused to go around the car.  Soon they saw two large headlights coming in the opposite lane, if they would have gone around they would have been killed in a head on collision.  They pulled off the road and Uncle Bob asked Ron why he did not pass.  He simply stated that Nancy had appeared to him and told him not to pass therefore saving their lives."  This is how Nancy saved our lives.  She said that Nancy spoke to Ron another time. " Ron was in her bedroom holding her teddy bear when she died.  He heard Nancy say to him "Do not worry.  I am OK.  I am with Gram.' " She is buried beside our grandmother in the Rockland Cemetery.

Notes for ESTELLA LOUISE PRATT:

In a letter to Mary Anne from Norwalk, California February 13, 1984
  "Dear Mary Anne;  Was certainly suprised to hear from a cousin or should I say second cousin that I didn't even know I had.  Yew, I do remember your mother and father although it has been years since I have seen them.  Glad you are tracing the family, but honey don't know if I can help much if at all.  You see, there was bad feelings between my mother and her mother and my mother and you grandmother my Aunt Lena.  My mother never talked about her side of the family at all only about Aunt Edith and Uncle Willie.  Now all I can tell you about is my family so here goes I do know that George Golden my grandfather died in 1915.  My mother Myrtle Belle Golden married Russell Leroy Pratt in February 1914.  Their first daughter Elizabeth Clara Pratt was born in 1-16-1915.  I Estella Louise Pratt jopined the family April 21,1917.  In the early 1930's Elizabeth was married to a Theodore Lindquist which only lasted a few months and ended in divorce.   I Estella was married to Almond Francis Shrubb, Jr. on March 17, 1935.
A son Russell Almond Shrubb was born on April 6, 1936.  Elizabeth met and married Warner Lindell in the early 1940's just don't remember the year.  No children was born to this union.  My husband died of lung cancer in July 1955.
I never remarried.  My son married Dorothy Faye Cox in May of 19__.  She had one son who was born October 1965 and my son adopted him the year they were married making him my first grandchild.  His name is Stephen Douglas Shrubb.  My second grandchild was born three days before my sister Bea died.  He was born March 5th 1972 and Bea died March 8th, 1972.  Warner Bea's husband remarried in, I believe in September that same year.  He was so lonesome.  Got a lovely women with a lot of grown children.  They are still married and still live in the same house.  Well Mary Anne that's all I know about the family.  As for as the older family past my folks.  Iknow nothing.  In fact I didn't even know the names until I read them in your letter.  Sorry I waited so long to answer this letter, but I had a light stroke in October 25, 1983 and have been very weak for a few months.  Thank God there wasn't any paralyses and of couse tha made my diabetes go haywire too.  But getting both under control again.  Wish you and your husband many hours of happiness being ordained ministers.  May God be with you in all you do.  Hope your children are fine and healthy.  If you ever get this family history done and get it published.  I would certainly be gald to pay the price for one.  Would be glad to hear from you again if you would care to write.  I will be 67 years old 4-21-04.  God Bless Take Care Always Estella."

33.  GEORGE F.6 GOLDEN (WILLIAM GEORGE5, CLARA ELIZABETH4 VANCISE, MARY HANNAH3 LINCOLN, DAVID2, ALFRED1)

Notes for GEORGE F. GOLDEN:

George lives in Cleveland, Ohio.  He has a daughter Sherry Golden  who also lives in Cleveland, Ohio.

In a letter sent to Dorothy Mae Morehouse Mackey from her Aunt Ruth dated 7-27-1950 she says the following about her son George. " George's studio and photography work keep him busy all during the week and lots of times evenings and Sundays, too, in order to keep up with his work.  In order to get his Christmas orders out on time he worked several nights all night.  Has a daybed in the studio so can stay there when weather and roads are too bad, or wants to work most of the night.  And has a hot plate so he can fix something to eat if he wants to.

It was nice when I was selling trees to be able to make a cup of tea and heat a can of soup during part of the P.M. and evening.  Also to have a comfortable warm place to sit down and rest a few minutes now and then,  Felt free to run in and out as often as I wished there which sure was a big help on keeping from getting chilled to the bone like other years.  And the weather was somewhat better while selling this year; although snow was terribly deep ( waist deep) to cut and get them out.  About used your Uncle Bill up, as his legs bother him so bad.  Last winter and this winter he has worked nights and Saturdays at the Westfield Y.M.C.A.  and I work there part time some of the time.  And this year helped Geoge at the studio same.   And this year I worked in the canning factory some and Bill and I worked in cherries and grapes and apples as there was a good crop this year.  Aunt Ruth and family."
