In Reply to: McVicker/Posch NY,NJ,PA about 1890-1930 by sarah of 183

Dear Sarah:

My mother's mother is the Eleanor. She has often told me the whole story about her father (Patrick) and her older sister Florence, and the younger Gertrude (who I knew very well, and my mother, Eleanor's daughter) spent every summer at Gertrude's cabins in upper state NY. I know that Florence's, Eleanor's, and Gertrude's mother died when Eleanor was only 16 or so. Two years later her father Patrick married Eleanor's friend and they had Patrick Jr.

My grandmother (Eleanor) has wanted to find her half-brother Patrick forever.

All you spoke of is identical -- oddly enough after all of my travels (I was born in NJ) I am not ironically living in PA.

PS I believe the spelling is Pasche (I have other information my grandmother gave me on another computer.

Hope you read this -- because YOU could not being writing about ANYONE else. In fact I called my niece Sarah to ask her if she had posted it for my mother (her grandmother) because who else but our immediately family could possibly know as much as you did in your message.

Hope to hear from you.

Sue

PPS Florence did move, but Eleanor followed her (it was to NY and then to Newark, NJ -- there is another interesting story :-) ).
