Ruth, many thanks for checking this out for me. Depending what time I make it to Amherst, hopefully I can make it over there again. I was so thrilled just to see school year books there from way back. Much Thanks Again. Cora

That being said, she suggested if you were coming in to do research, she has some grade 5 students in on Thursday from 9:30 to 11:30 so she wouldn't be able to help you with research items.

> Ruth, thanks very much for your response. I love hearing stories and knowing the history behind the names. Still can not add them to my line yet, but holding on to all of this. Ruth, do you know if the Amherst Museum is still open? Going down on Thursday and thinking of dropping in again to check out some info. Cora

Heather and Charlene (Peggy's youngest sisters) would be half sisters as Joan is their natural mother. I'm not sure about Terry, but I think Eileen was his mother.......
