We moved to Allenspark because of the beautiful mountain scenery, small village, and quiet! All this is on the verge of disappearing as an ATV business has taken hold in the town and is advertising nationally to attract ATV users to Allenspark. Help!

We use to fish up in your area (about 40 years ago) at a place called Beaver Station Resort which was between Land O Lakes and Watersmeet on the east side of U. S. 45 on beaver station lake.
I was just wondering what happened to it.
I am hoping that there is still information on it.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
my name is Jan Hoff & I live in Yorkshire England.

We are currently researching my husbands family name of Hoff. Marie Mathilde Hoff (born in Alsace Lorraine France in approx 1856), was his great grandmother who arrived in Louisiana in 1896(ish??). She settled in Lake Charles - Police Jury - Ward 4 & then later Ward 3.

In the 1900 census she was living with William Rickard, (born Germany approx 1847) & Blanche Hoff listed as a neice to William. Blanche was aged 12 at that time & listed as born in Germany.

We think Marie or Mathilde Hoff married her sister's husband Waldemar/ Waldeman Ruge - born Germany in approx 1846.

Marie had 2 illigitimate children back in England - Percy Eduard Frederick born Kensington London in 1877 - father unknown. The other one was Nina Victoria Sillitoe born in Walthamstow London in 1887. Nina's father was named but Marie Mathilde Hoff didn't marry him.

Anyone with a connection or just interested - we would love to hear from you!

WARNING!!! If your looking for a quiet place to live Don't move to the west side of Stratford WI. I live next to the Stratford Industrial Park on a beautiful piece of land that I love. Unfortunately it has been ruined by noise polluition from A&B Process Systems of Stratford. I was told it was to be a quite park, far from the truth. The noise does not stop. Day and night pounding on steel, crashing steel, backup beepers, intercoms. It's so loud it is even affecting the wildlife. I saw a squirrel jump every time A&B pounded on there steel. I have called the police several times, but nothing has been done and its getting worse with the new Wausau Window plant. It is affecting my health and well-being. Noise negatively affects human health and well-being. Problems related to noise include hearing loss, stress, high blood pressure, sleep loss, distraction and lost productivity, depression and a general reduction in the quality of life and opportunities for tranquillity.

Perryopolis, Pennsylvania, small in size, but huge in history as many famous people and events have graced its perimeters. Lush green hillsides surround its entirety as it sits quietly in the center of a valley filled with remnants of the past. Perryopolis was given its name by the locals who decided that Oliver Hazard Perry, a war hero of 1812 would be appropriate for a small community that had such a large amount of patriotism and pride as many of the original settlers had also fought in battle themselves.

There are many historical buildings still standing in Perryopolis as well as Indian rock carvings dating back to the 1,400's. An original blacksmith shop and log house from 1820 still stands, and is now a gift shop. If this doesn?t draw you in then the rich heritage will. In fact it is so rich that every year colonial historians and demonstrators bring the 18th century back to life during Pioneer Days.

I would like more information regarding the Adult Detention Center, located in Jones County, Ms.

I am writing because, I would like to know more on how the Judicial system works, in Jones County, Ms.

First, how can he be imprisoned for two months, and not yet, have been given the opportunity, to go to court to be formally charged, before a judge? Secondly, the court has not given him the opportunity to enter his plea. Is this a case of Habeas Corpus?

My nephew has been incarcerated for two months, without a court date. What type of Judicial system is this? My only concern is a right to fair representation that is dependable. I would surely, be disappointed to know that history is not repeating itself, by unjustly allowing African American males denial to fair representation in the State of Mississippi.

If there is anyone out there can help me, would you please respond back..

I have Ruthven bloodlines.

We have an ancestor, Robert Ruthven who married Mary Rannie. Robert was born in Dunladen, Scotland in 1816 and died in 1880. He is buried in a county cemetary near Alliston, Ontario.

He and Mary had 14 children:
Robert, William, George, Nancy, Alex, Adam, Margaret, Agnes, Charles, Edwin, Jim, Guy, Mary and Sam.

I read that Ruthven, Iowa was named after Alex Ruthven and his 2 brothers.

Is the Alex Ruthven in my ancestry possibly the same one whom the city of Ruthven is named after? What were the names of the two brothers given credit for in the naming of this city?

The Riverside Inn is 60 years old this year and looking better than ever. I am proud to have been its innkeeper for the past 6 years and expect to follow with another 6 years. I think that because Downieville is such a nice place there are so many folks in the world that feel it is their second home. We hope you'll come visit and make yourself at home at the Riverside Inn.

I am considering opening up a business in Millersville which will have late hours. Does anyone out there know about crime (or lack of) at the two shopping centers at Old Mill Rd and Veteran's Hwy. I am in touch with county police but sometimes it's better to get a local's opinion.

Hey,

I am Gina from Germany. I have been to Herminie about 6 times.

It is a beautiful place to be. Not far from a big town but far enough to at the countryside. The landscape is very varied. The hills, soft curved. Nice to take a walk. The houses. In the winter you have snow in Herminie - lots of. The people are very very friendly and I love Giant Eagle (not typical Herminie). The little bar in the middle of Herminie with all the glasses/bottels behind the bar. Funny people. I had a wonderful evening with them. Everybody is friendly.

Thanks Herminie

I have been researching in the area for about 5 years. It seems that our family provided a school known as Lewisville Acad. in 1859, and the school was returned to the family in 1908, the time that Olanta was named Olanta. Would like to talk to other families with history in the area, McElveens, McKenzies, Floyds, Thompsons, Bakers, Trulucks, Tomlinsons, and many others.

Trying to find out more about Webster Springs where my mother's family lived and began visiting Florida in the early 20th century. They moved permanently to Florida in the 1930's. I can't seem to find a web page that gives more than statistics and local places of interest.

History on the web seems to be limited to pre-history and early settlers. Found nothing regarding Webster Springs as a resort at the end of the 19th century, or any thing more contemporary online.

I have encountered something quite problematic about the library. The last two times I have taken books out of the Andover Memorial Library, I returned them through the slot in the side of the building.
Then I received notices from the library that the books were not returned. Recently I was billed for them.

If there is a scam, then many people would have had a similar experience.

In each instance, I took out "mystery" paperbacks -- all well worn with the usual dogears -- and one or two hardback books.

I shall not borrow even one more book, for fear of being wrongly charged again.

The police were not interested. A reporter from the Townsman said she would write something about it in an effort to find other people who shared the experience.

Have you had this experience?

Please let me know at barbaracjohnson@verizon.net. Thanks.

Hello,

My maternal grandmother grew up on Gem Island in the mid to late 1800s. Her name was Martha Ann Gamage. She married, moved away, raised a family and died almost 70 years ago. Incredibly, though I never met my Gramma, I feel a real connection to Gem Island and South Bristol and would love to email someone there. I have a book and pictures of South Bristol and some tin-types of a seal that used to live there. I'd love it if someone would respond to this. A relative perhaps????

The information about where Granby got its name is incorrect. LeRoy Adair, editor and owner of the Granby News Herald, wrote an article back in 1950 entitled "Conglomerate names Granby". This is patently untrue. The Granby conglomerate was named after Granby not the other way around. The conglomerate was named in the book: "Geology of the Granby Area" by E.R. Buckley and H.A. Buehler. This is a very foolish error that has been around since Adair first wrote the article. To my knowledge, nobody knows how Granby got its name, but I am working on it. Savage

I think this bit about the annexation is a way for them to fatten there pockets. I will be voting NO as well. If you do not want your taxes to be raised then you to should be there to vote NO. I like Doraville how it is. All this change is not welcome people.

Palatka is a very friendly and interesting little town. It has come a long way in the last thirty years. Wonderful Indian and soldier wars! Also a fire wiped out a lot of Palatka at the end of the 1800's. A lot of famous people have came thru here. Pat Boone use to frequent the old dining car restarant that has been here for ever, called Angel's. My grandfather Frank Arant was one of the deacons at Peniel Baptist Church, who was there when Billy Graham was ordained. Also this little church is the oldest church in Florida! These are a few great reasons to live here along with beautiful scenery, murals that depict Palatka's past and much more. The only reason I don't like living here is the excruciating hot ,hot ,hot summers!

I am trying every way under the sun to find out if the Thunder Five revolver is still manufactured by a company in Piney Flats. Mine was stolen and I am trying to find out how to purchase another one. This may not be one of your favorite subjucts concerning Piney Flats but it sure is important to me. That was my wife's snake gun when we went fishing. Any help concerning this would be greatly appreciated. I graduated from UT in Knowville in '61 so I learned to love East Tennessee. Thanks for your time.

Fairbanks is an incredible community. Born and raised here, I can attest that it is the place to live. While many folks live in their home town because "that's where my grandfather and my father lived..." NOBODY lives in Fairbanks unless they WANT to live here. It's too damn cold. It's too damn dark.

We want to live here - and thrive as a result.

This is my home town. I'm proud of it.

Come join us. We're over-educated and under-dressed. I'm a trial lawyer (www.merdes.com) and my jurors do the right thing. They treat people with respect. They participate in the process. They treat all folks with justice.

It's great in the summer. It's great in the winter. We have hot springs, midnight-sun baseball, mosquitos bigger than your hand, some of the best fishing and hunting in the world. But most of all, we have us. We love it here.

I just moved here from Orlando, wow, what a difference, and a good one I might add. It's a joy to ride down the road, and not be in bumper to bumper traffic!

We can go to the library, the grocery store, and try any one of several resturants, all in the same small area and do this in a matter of minutes, not hours!

We need a bigger library, and they need a web page, but other than that as far as I can tell Callahan seems like a pretty nice place!

I hate the American Legion's alarm going off. Every time it goes off it take the State Highway Patrol a half hour to come and turn it off. That is ridicolous. Everytime it goes off I loose the sleep of the time time the alarm is going off plus once it goes off I am so angry and I have such a big headache from the alarm I can't go back to sleep. This has to stop.

I seriously doubt that any records are available to connect the town of Oxford, AR after the town of Oxford in England. Early Census Records and documents are available that show a large family by the name of Oxford settling and living for sometime near the Strawberry River between Oxford and Wiseman. The time frame for this was an appropriate time in the late 1870's and 1880,s. I find this a much more probable speculation than the adoption of the European City name. In studying the census reports of Newhope Township over a number of years there is no indication as to the remote possiblity of Oxford being named after Oxford, England. Prior to this time a small settlement was established at the present site by the name of Croom's Mill...named after a grist mill owned and operated by the Croom Family. I would appreciate input form others and their thoughts thoughts, etc. in regards as to how Oxford came to get its its name.

I was an Alumni of Gnesen Elementary School During it's final year, which I believe to be it's Golden year. Our 1st than 2nd and again 3rd grade was the biggest it ever saw. Us boys got into alot of trouble. starting from climing up the heating and cooling ducts located in the coat rooms in the classrooms, to staying out in the trails. Well past the bell to come in. We were busy looking for the "Bull" that was on the other side of the farmers fence. To plain old staying in the bathroom trying to climb into the the girls bathroom, because in that vent duct was the porn that an older student had stashed. I was absent the day the school had FINAL pictures taken in front of the school, however Mrs. McDonald brought her camera in and took polaroids for me when I returned. I was born and raised 17 years on Island Lake and miss it every day, now that I have to be all growd up. :-) I miss the days of playing with SMURFS!!!

I am looking for a girl (or her family) who was once an old childhood friend of my 86 year old grandmother, Mabel Schlesinger Walters. I recently stumbled on a photo of the girl I am looking for pictured with my great-grandmother Arminta Schlesinger, wife of Sam Schlesinger. In the photo the young black girl appears possibly age 9/10 & on the back only her name is written, "Rosie Mae". I realize it's a long shot but my grandmother has recently been diagnosed with alzheimers & of all of the things she still is able to recall Rosie Mae has been one of them. If anyone has any info I would greatly appreciate it, thank you!

Gloucester was a great place to grow up in. We had neighborhood schools, small classes and teachers all new your brothers and sisters. It was safe to walk anywhere, and if kids were being bad, someone called your parents. Parents held their children accountable. I can remember the local bakeries (on Powell st and one on Brown St.) The local stores that had penny candy, and the best subs/hoagies around were at Mrs Yeagers on Lane Ave. The 5 & 10, Elwell Jewelers, and the Library on Momouth St.

Going from your little school to Mary Ethel was a big deal!!. I graduated from GHS in 75, just doesn't seem all that long ago.

If you are travelling through Tennessee, winding your way through the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, you may happen upon a small town nestled in a green valley beside the Nolichuckey River. This quaint small town is Erwin, also known as the Valley Beautiful to residents and neighbors.
Located within Unicoi County, this small town offers up traditional small town fare. The downtown area houses many shops and boutiques, including antique shops where you can find our famous Blue Ridge pottery.
Besides shopping, Erwin also offers a variety of recreational activities. For the adventurous, whitewater rafting is an option. For the laid back folks, there are several hiking trails to visit, including the famous Appalachian Trail. History buffs can pay a visit to the Heritage Museum.
Staying overnight? Erwin offers a choice of accomodations. Hotels, a bed and breakfast, and camping sites are available, all at affordable prices.
Off the beaten path, Erwin, TN. is a rare find for vacationers.

Random facts:

Loudoun County's average household income is now (March 2007) $90,300.

Eastern Loudoun County is an exurb rather than a suburb, and a remnant of rural culture survives in western Loudoun County. Hideous, over-priced tract housing covers most of Eastern Loudoun County while McMansions are being built more frequently in Western Loudoun County.

Leesburg is an appealing city with some history and character, and Waterford has the same appeal.

Despite being only half an hour away from Washington D.C., most Loudouners do not visit there often.

There are some huge churches in the county, but many churches hold services in public school auditoriums.

The following languages are spoken in Loudoun County: English, Spanish, Hindi, Urdu, Chinese, Arabic, Farsi, and some indigeous languages of South America

I am an active widow in her late sixties, originally from NY, but have been living in southwest Florida for the past 9 years.
I would like to relocate to your area since I cannot tolerate the Florida summers anylonger. I love the outdoors, play bridge, attend concerts and love museums, am an avid reader, gardener, gourmet cook, paint in watercolors or whatever grabs me and love my dog! I have a daughter and grandaughter up north whom I visit often.
Could you let me know if your area is right for me? I have had two extended visits researching areas and fell in love with the land and people.
Thanks for your help!

I am trying to research my family history. I am looking for anyone with the surname of Irving, or Smith. My great-grandfather named was Arthur Irving and my great-grandmother was named Pocahontus. I believe my great-grandmother father name was Promise Smith. You can contact me at kpratt@nyc.rr.com

My grandmother name was Emma Pratt and she was one of the children of Arthur and Pocahontus. She had several brothers and sisters some died at birth. To name a few there was Katie, Isabella, James, Louise, Pearl (Irene) Annlisa and my grandmother Emma. There were more but I don't remember their name.

Most of my family members are residing in Washington, Maryland, Virginia, and New York.

I searching for Jo and George Lafever. Jo is paternal grandmother of my fifteen year old daughter. My daughter,Tori, is Jo's only granddaughter. Tori wishes to locate and contact Jo and George. My ex-husband Jeremy has not had a relationship with his mother for many years. Therefore, I am experiencing problems locating Jo and George. A very limited search on the internet revealed Lake George, CO as a possible address for the two. Jo and George once lived in Arizona and another city in Colorado. Jo's mother Lucille is from Houston, TX. My daughter has tried to contact her great-grandmother also with no sucess. Therefore, my daughter's search for her grandmother has been disappointing. Any information about Jo and George will be greatly appreciated.

We've lived in Cedarhurst for the past 43 plus years and in our house for the past 36 years. I can genuinely state that this is a wonderful place to live. The municipality really cares about its citizens and has services and precautions that you don't find in other communities. The mayor is a warm and wonderful person who puts in tons of extra effort and extra hours to make sure his and our village is run properly. The citizens are ready to help one another and be pleasant to one another. Are there no problems? Well, this is the real world, so I couldn't honestly say there are no problems, but with good will and patience each problem is resolvable and is being worked on. You are welcome to join us.

I've been living in the Menifee/Sun City area for about 15 years. Many things have changed throughout those years--some good some bad. As far as I'm concerned people out here can be too uptight. The schools are okay but the start time system sucks. The schools should be traditional rather than year round because running the air-conditioners at the schools during the hotest months of the year can cost the city money. That is my opinion.

My Grandfather, Andy Costen, and his family lived in Snyder in 1909 and operated a bakery in a two story building; they lived above the bakery. A fire started in the bakery and the family was trapped upstairs. They had to jump from the second story window. My grandmother--seven months pregnant--hit her head on a farm machine that had been offloaded from the nearby railroad. She was unconscious for a long time and her baby was born prematurely. The Costens were taken in after the fire by a family named Gunsenhauser. Because of this kindness, Grandmother named her baby girl after the Gunsenhausers' two daughters, OLIVE and RHEA. If anyone knows anything about the Costens or Gunsenhausers, it would be appreciated if you would contact me: <lslonghorn@austin.rr.com> (Lawrence Seeger)

Monroe is a quaint little town experiencing huge growth. There are so many new beautiful homes and there are new schools being opened yearly. The taxes are far lower than those of Mecklenburg County, but we're still close enough that driving in to Charlotte is no problem (there is, however, traffic!)
The people of Union County are very friendly and welcoming, and always willing to help a friend (old or new) with anything they need!
There's also a mommies' group called OurMommiesGroup.com - it's a great resource for moms new to the area who may be looking for new friends and social opportunities for themselves and their children!

Harper Woods MI a city that changed its name to give people the idea they were somehow of the same status as the other cities with 'wood or pointe' in their names. But it has come to the attention of this writer that HARPER WOODS, MI is no different than any other poor city in the Detroit area.

costs and jail to force free labor, chemicals, water and no liability to the city should the citizen get hurt tending to city property or public right of ways that the citizen receives NO direct benefit for its existance.

This City is so brash about intimidating its citizens, it fails to name the alleged ordinance that requires the citizen to act as a slave for the benefit of the city and those companies that receive direct benefit from the existance of th right of way

Harper Woods ignores the 13th Amendmnet of the Constitution in order to get its citizens to care for city property for no compensation for labor, tools, injuries, chemicals or water. Should a citizen of Harper Woods fail to take care of the public right of ways for free adn at their own risk, the city threaten the citizen with fines, criminal charges, jail time and forced payment to a third party for work the citizen refused to do for free. But the City has no problem paying a third party to do the work and then bill the citizen for the work performed.

The bottom line here is the City will use threats of fines, costs ,prosecution and jail should the citizen refuse ot perform as a slave or act in involuntary servitude.

Does anyone have any information about Ridge Homes? They were a division of Evans Products Company, and were in business in the early 1970's. Their address was 501 Office Center Drive, Fort Washington, Pa.

Just curious, as Evans Products apparently went bankrupt. Was wondering if Ridge Homes had been spun off - or 'bit the dust'. I am an owner of a Ridge Homes house.

Thanks for any insights!

I attended St. Joseph's Academy from 1949 to 1956. My parents owned and operated the Plaza Motel. As a child I remember the good times I had in Chickasha with my classmates. We explored the grain bins down by the railroad tracks, went to the movies on saturday when it cost only 25 cents. Those were the good old days. I hope some of my classmates are still living in Chickasha and if so I would like for them to contact me as I would love to reunite and catch up on the past 50 years.

I'm searching for anyone that has information how I may contact any one of the family members with the last name of either Lattals or Bartels. The brothers and sisters are named Edward (approx. age 83), Evelyn (82), Pauline (81) and Alice (79). Their parents, long deceased, were named either Lattals or Bartels and their first names were Edward
and Amelia. The father died in 1937 and I don't know how long ago the mother died.
The 3 sisters probably married and obviously have different last names, but someone may know of Edward or have knowledge of the parents.
That's all the information I have and I know that isn't much to go on, but any information would be helpful. Thank you.

The bigotry showed in the firing of city manager Steve Stanton is appalling. And for Pastor Ron Saunders of the Lighthouse Baptist Church to claim that he knows what Jesus Christ would want is horrifying! I can't believe that this degree of intolerance and ignorance is tolerated. Maybe Mr. Saunders can also channel St. Paul and St. Peter to tell us all how we should live.

Does any of this sound familiar to anyone? I live in Florida now and if you email me send it to colorado1943@yahoo.com. Thanks folks
