4 Collingswood young women read The Courier Post in Ocean City, 1950

Looking through some old photos from South Jersey. Wouldn't the girls in the photo or their descendants like to see this photo?

It is #41 on this site


A Downer, NJ postmark

Most Gateway students might not be interested, but I was interested because a grandfather of mine had family living in Downer, NJ at one time. As far as I can determine the Post Office there closed in 1936. Click on the second link below for a higher resolution image. When this postcard was offered on eBay the seller read the postmark as 1910, but I see Dec 17, 1930 -- and US census records show Oscar Walter Huntsinger with mother, wife Emma, and niece Viola living in Downer in 1930. Viola would not have been born yet in 1910. You can click on the relevant census page link below.

Bill Coene -- same as William George Coene

On a FaceBook group that tries to unite old photos with the correct families I saw this photo of a flight crew taken at a training base.

The contributor Cheri Hobbs Leonard wrote in the group Family Treasures Found :

Photo 1 of 2 taken Herington Army Airfield, Herington KS. Photo 2 identifies the airmen. It is likely that at least one of these men was from Massachusetts as the annotation is in my Mother's writing and the photo was among her possessions.

Some neat attachments for you.

I will take this page down after you let me know that you got the files. There's realty tax mapping feature in the county that lets anyone search for landowners.

There's a 1963 page from his college yearbook there, too.

The obituary from The Trenton Times shows that Ian died in Princeton, NJ.

Hi From Deb


Barnes -- King Families of Chenango County, New York

My wife's grandmother was Ethel May Barnes of Norwich, Chenango County, New York.

A book was compiled by R. C. (Raymond Curtis) Barnes about the families. He had the book printed in 1964. He once lived in Norwich, but joined the US Army and chose to live in San Antonio, Texas in his retirement.

I can't find it in print anywhere. I have scanned a copy that I got from a local historical society.

Here's the title page
