WOW! Barry! where did you get that story from? Some one is pulling yer leg,,,Mamie's father was Joseph O. Lash who was a ladies man and was only born March 10,1863 in Spg twp, Berks Co.Pa. Joseph was the son of James G. & Jane Gaul Lash
In fact our Lash's were against the Civil War and against any Lincoln Politics,,,Oh! some did serve, but in the Berks Co. area I have only found a William Lash and he is distantly related to our line,,questions,,email!
