57 The following is from: Salem Maritime National Historic Site - Historical Research 1626-1990:
In 1873 Johanna, Daniel, Catherine, and Michael Leahy bought the house at 106 Derby Street from the heirs of Henry Rope's widow, Mary, who died in 1865 (Snell 1976b:5-11). This brick house, now known as the Derby House, was built by Richard Derby, Sr. in 1761-1762, for his son Elias Hasket Derby, apparently on the occasion of his marriage in 1761. Richard Derby purchased the property, then vacant, in 1760. Elias and his family moved to another house in 1782, renting the former dwelling as a two-family house. The house and lot were sold to Captain Henry Prince in 1796 (he is believed to have built the West India Goods Store c. 1800-1805). In 1827 the Merchants Bank of Salem sold the Derby House property to John W. Osgood (Baltimore) and Henry Ropes. Henry Ropes became the sole owner in 1843 and he remained there until he died in 1861.
In 1866 the Leahy family was listed at 3 Tuckers Wharf, which was also described as the "foot of Tuckers Wharf" (The Salem Directory 1866:100). Three years later, in 1869, Patrick, Daniel and Johanna boarded at 1 Palfrey Court, where they remained through 1872 (The Salem Directory 1869:98). By 1881, Johanna, Bartholomew, and Daniel Leahy were in residence at 106 Derby Street (The Salem Directory 1881:126). Ten years later, the Leahy family was still at No. 106, where they divided the house with Catherine and Hohn Noonan (The Naumkeag Directory for Salem, etc. 1890-91:243). Catherine Leahy obtained sole title to the property in 1895 (Snell 1976b:9), but by 1901, the residence, now known as 168 Derby, was occupied by Catherine Noonan, Thomas Deasy, and Michael Walsh. (CRO Note: Johanna died in 1900, Daniel moved to Beverly that same year.)
... The Leahy's collaborated to purchase the house, and the collaboration involved Johanna and her two adult sons, Bartholomew and Daniel. The elder sonse, who were married , set up separate households within the extended family that occupied the dwelling, while the unmarried children continued to live with their mother. Home ownership obviously stretched their resources to the limit since not only did all adult children work but Johanna also took in boarders within her household. In addition to obvious sources of work at the cotton mills, occupants of the former Derby mansion found jobs in the 1880s in what was left of the maritime industry (as a stevedore - one who loads and unloads ships in port).

copied from RKS 3/2/80 Mumi memo: ["are her pencil notes"], {are my notes}:
Johanna (Doyle) Leahy came to America from County Waterford with several of her seven children before 1865. The oldest of the children was Catherine Leahy {actually she was not the oldest} who came to Salem after the others were settled here. Catherine was 11 years old when she arrived in 1865 {?}. The father of this family did not come with them. Either he had died or was hospitalized in Ireland. The other members of the family were Bridget ["not married"], Bartholemew ["married Catherine Walsh -Barbara's aunt"; "Kate Leahy & a son who died"], Charles (also known as Mike) ["not married"], Daniel ["Anni & a son"], Mary ["Cronan"; "Annie Mallone & John"], Margaret ["Chas. Clo...tman"] (and Catherine).
["Johanna was burried with her son Charlie "Mike" Leahy in St. Mary's Cemetary, Salem, MA; sec. 4, Range 8, Cor 19. She died May 11, 1900 at 76 years."]

59 Named on death record of Lucy Joseph HANSON
 
60 Hannah Harwood is listed as having married Thomas Wheeler 10/10/1657, in the Concord Records book (p. 9). However, her name is spelled Hana Harrod - there seem to be many strange spellings and spelling errors in this book. There is a Mary Harrod, widow, listed on the same page. This Mary Harrod, widow, is listed as Mary Haward, with Harrod noted as the spelling in the County record. There is a John Haward married to Rebake Atkison listed on page 8. This John and Rebake are listed as Heywood on page 9. THEREFORE, it appears these names all refer to the same family: Harwood, Harrod, Haward, and Heywood; and John Heywood and Mary Haward may be siblings of Hannah Harwood!

63 Catherine was a warm person, and a very pleasant lady, according to her grandson Harry. Her grandchildren say that she would not talk about her past in Ireland.
Catherine, travelling either alone or with a cousin?, came to America at the age of 11 (per RKS 3/2/80 Mumi memo), by steamer stearage after the death of her father in Ireland. Her mother and siblings were already living in Salem, MA, while she had stayed in Ireland with her father. Catherine came from County Waterford to America in 1865 (RKS "blue folder").

She lived at 106 Derby Street (renumbered 168 Derby around 1897), the Derby House, where her mother operated a boarding house. Others listed at this address: Daniel Leahy (laborer) 1874-94, 93-94; Joanna (widow of Patrick) Leahy 1874-98 (at 109 Derby 1890-91), Michael Leahy (boards 1874-1898), Bartholomew Leahy (1881-1898, Chelsea in 1884), and Edmund Canty in 1881(same year he married Catherine). Bart, Daniel and Joanna first appear in the Salem Directory in 1866 at House at foot of Tuckers Warf; later at 1 Palfray Court with Michael and Patrick (who only appears in 1869) from 1869-1872. Joanna Leahy (widow of Patrick) died 5/11/1900. Daniel removed to Beverly, 1900, and died in 1906 at the age of 59 (therefore born abt. 1847).

Catherine died September 14, 1936 at the Salem Hospital after an extended illness. According to her obituary, she was well known in Ward One.

According to the 1910 US Census, Catherine and Edward lived at 35 Daniels Street in Salem, MA. At this same address was the family of Michael and Catherine Doyle - cousin??

65 Deb and I collaborated briefly on our genealogy. We came in contact through the GenForm website (now part of Ancestry.com). Though we never met, she was my 2nd cousin. The last time we were in contact she had walked up and down the cemetery in Hampden, Maine looking for our great-grandparents graves, without any luck. I unsuccessfully tried to contact her after a work trip to Bangor where I was able to do a little research. Unfortunately, I learned later that she had passed away.

66 from Alan Masison (13 Dec. 2002):
Charles was adopted in 1918 by the Farrington family, but they apparently never made it legal. After growing up as a Farrington he discovered years later that he was a Massison - but the name was corrupted as Masison. The Masison spelling continued though his children and remains today.

His children had believed that Joseph died in the flu of 1918 - but Charles would have been 15 years old and surely would have memories of his parents.

The Catholic Church took over the orphans including Charles, Mary, John, and other brothers and sisters. The Catholic Church could not provide for all of them so they asked a family leaving Mass on Sunday to take one or two home with them and feed them for a week and bring them to Mass next Sunday.

The Farringtons took Charles home and kept him. He never saw his sister Mary again until some time in the 1950's when John published a notice in the Boston Record American which Alan happened to see. The Masison's contacted John who was living in Cambridge, he spoke only French, and that led them to Mary and Bert Ogden who were living in or around Somerville. 
Charles Joseph (Massison) MASISON
 
67 Dorothy and I were briefly in contact regarding our genealogy. I had found a file she submitted to the Latter Day Saints genealogy project regarding the Massison's. Her mailing address was available with the file so I sent her a letter. One day, in 1999, she called but I was not home. My wife said she sounded very excited to have received the letter from someone else researching the Massison family. She said she would call back, but did not leave a number. A couple years later I sent her another letter, which was responded to in an email by one of her daughters. Dorothy had alzheimer’s and was not able to discuss genealogy. I was however put in contact with her brothers and one of her nieces who has been a great help. Dorothy passed away a few years later. We never talked.

82 Bert was born in the Amherst Shore area in Nova Scotia in 1901. Amherst Shore is near the connection to New Brunswick, and for a time they appeared to have lived in Moncton and Hopewell, New Brunswick. He had brown hair and green eyes according to his border crossing record in 1914.

His father, Albert "James" Ogden, was a farmer in Nova Scotia. He moved the family to Hampden, ME, just south of Bangor in June 1914. Bert crossed the border on June 17, 1914 with his mother and siblings to meet his father in Hampden. James worked there as a nickel plater (electroplator) at the Crogan Manufacturing Company [2] at 27 Franklin Street in Bangor where they manufactured tape measures. Bert worked as a mattressmaker at the Bangor Mattress Company[1]. They lived in (East) Hampden, Maine.

Bert grew up the oldest of at least 8 siblings, the youngest, Charles, being born in Hampden when Bert was 21. His father died the following year. Bert, his mother, and family moved into Bangor around that time, and to Cambridge, Massachusetts a few years later. In Massachusetts, Bert worked for Simplex Electric (and Conduit?) - the company that built the American end cable for the first trans Atlantic telephone cable. He was a wire tester and electrical foreman; his coworkers called him Zeek.

Bert's mother died in 1931 when he was almost 30 years old. He married Mary Massison-Reilly at the Blessed Sacrament Church in Cambridge in 1935. They had 2 children born in 1938 and 1945. Bert became a naturalized citizen in 1940 after being in America for about 26 years. His brother Jesse was naturalized 2 years later. His youngest brother Charles recieved the Purple Heart during World War II, and was killed in Korea in 1950.

http://www.answers.com/topic/simplex-technologies-inc?cat=biz-fin
In 1895 the Simplex Wire & Cable Company was incorporated for operation in Cambridge, Massachusetts--and the name of Morss & Whyte became history.
On December 1, 1953, AT&T announced plans to link North America and Europe with a transatlantic telephone cable. The project was a joint venture of AT&T, the British Post Office, the Canadian Overseas Telecommunications Corporation and the Eastern Telephone & Telegraph Company (a Canadian subsidiary of the Bell Telephone System). Simplex built the American portion of the cables and with the help of Bell Labs, supplied research and development data to Submarine Cables Ltd.--a British firm responsible for manufacturing the other sections of the transatlantic cable. Two repeatered cables were laid: one for transmission from east to west, and the other for transmission from west to east. The cables were placed 20 miles apart to allow for easy retrieval in any future grappling operation needed for repairs. The system was in place and opened for public use on September 25, 1956.
In 1974 Simplex became a wholly owned subsidiary of Exeter, New Hampshire-based Tyco International Ltd.
in 1994, Simplex Wire & Cable Company changed its name to Simplex Technologies Inc.

"From 1953 until about 1976," Simplex Marketing Services Representative Ed Miles wrote in a company missive, "about 90 percent of Simplex business was the making of surveillance cables that linked hydrophones for the U.S. government. All around the U.S. coastline, a virtual spiderweb of Simplex cables connected hydrophones that could detect and disseminate the movements of ships and submarines. The hydrophones could pick up each ship's 'fingerprint' to determine whether or not it was a friendly ship."

July 2000 - Simplex Technologies, a name on the Seacoast for decades, officially became TyCom
Launched in 1865 as a maker of steel wire products like birdcages, the company eventually moved into cable, building the American portion of the first transatlantic telephone line in 1955
 
Bert Ernest OGDEN
 
83 Charlie was born in Maine 21 years after his oldest sibling. His father died a year later and the family moved to Cambridge, MA. His mother died when he was 9 years old. He became a soldier in the U.S. Army and fought during both World War II and the Korean War.

Charlie enlisted in the Army on May 27, 1940. He was originally a member of the Yankee Division, 26th Infantry Division, a major formation of the Massachusetts Army National Guard. He was likely a member of the 182nd Infantry Regiment, which along with the recently added 164th Infantry Regiment was transferred out of Yankee Division and assigned to Task Force 6814, on 14 January 1942. This task force was sent to Melbourne, Australia for nearly five months of combat training. Immediately following Pearl Harbor, on December 7, 1941, the United States hurriedly sent three individual regiments to defend New Caledonia against a feared Japanese attack. On May 24, 1942, this task force became one of only two un-numbered divisions to serve in the Army during World War II. Known as the Americal Division, derived from a combination of "America" and "New Caledonia", it was comprised of the 182nd, 164th, and the 132nd Infantry Regiments.

Early in World War II Charlie fought at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands.

Later in the war he volunteered for a "Dangerous and Hazardous Mission" and trained for long-range penetration behind enemy lines in Japanese-held Burma as part of the special operations light infantry unit known as "Merrill's Marauders". In Burma Charlie served in Company B of the 1st Battalion 5307th Composite Unit (Provisional). He was awarded the Purple Heart for wounds he received on May 24, 1944, most likely at Myitkyina, North Burma. After the Burma mission, the 5307th was consolidated into the 475th Infantry Regiment (the modern-day 75th Ranger Regiment).

Charlie may have returned to his previous unit in the Americal Division, as he was photographed at Kobe base in 1946. He re-enlisted in 1946 at Fort Devens, one year after WWII ended. He was honorably discharged on Decemeber 31, 1948.

Charlie re-enlisted again on February 17, 1949. He was stationed at Fort Benning with Company E of 15th Infantry Regiment. He married Shirley Schaub from New Orleans on July 31, 1950 - just prior to shipping out for Korea. In Korea he was a Master Sargeant in Company B of the 31st Infantry Regiment of the 7th Infantry Division. He was killed December 1, 1950 during the deadliest days of the war in a battle east of the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea. His body was not returned to the United States until 1955, five (5) years after his death.

Service timeline:
The date and division of his original enlistment is not known.
(1942-43) Guadalcanal
1943, Sept.: India training for Burma campaign (based on his 5307th service)
1944: India/Burma (listed as an original member of the 5307th)
1944, May: wounded, presumably at Charparte, north Burma.
1944, Aug.: (5307th became the 475th)
1945-46: Kobe, Japan; photographed in 1946 receiving his Purple Heart at Kobe army base in Japan for his wounds in Burma.
1946: Re-enlisted Fort Banks, Winthrop, MA. Assigned to Hawaiian Department.
1948: honorably discharged
1949: Re-enlisted; stationed at Fort Benning, Georgia training other soldiers. When war in Korea broke he was told he would not have to go because he had been in combat... but he chose to go.
1950: married a Shirley Schaub from New Orleans, Louisiana prior to shipping out to Korea.
1950: North Korea (First Inchon landings were Sept 15; his regiment landed at Inchon Sept 19 and took responsibility for the zone south of Seoul highway where they engaged in heavy fighting with North Korean soldiers. After Seoul was retaken, they headed for the Yalu River, he was KIA December 1 at Chosin Reservoir.)


World War II:
He fought at Guadalcanal; this would have been in either 1942 or 1943.
Later with US Army 5307th Composite Unit (Provisional), 1st Battalion, Company B, White Combat Team in Burma with Merrill's Marauders. He Received multiple Purple Heart in World War II (per LHO)
Merrill's Marauders were the 5307th Composite Unit (provisional) led by Brigadier General Frank Merrill. They were a US long range penetration special forces unit (US Army Rangers) which fought in the Burma Campaign of World War II. They were active from 1943-1944, being disbanded on August 10, 1944. Code named "Galahad", this unit was comprised of volunteers for a "Dangerous and Hazardous Mission". "Of the 2,750 to enter Burma, only 2 were left alive who had never been hospitalized with wounds or major illness" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merrill%27s_Marauders ). In slightly more than five months of combat, the Marauders had advanced 750 miles through some of the harshest jungle terrain in the world, fought in 5 major engagements (Walawbum, Shaduzup, Inkangahtawng, Nhpum Ga, and Myitkyina) and engaged in combat with the Japanese Army on thirty-two separate occasions. Battling Japanese soldiers, hunger, fevers, and disease, they had traversed more jungle terrain on their long-range missions than any other U.S. Army formation during World War II. The men of the Merrill's Marauders enjoyed the rare distinction of having each soldier awarded the Bronze Star. In June 1944, the 5307th Composite Unit (provisional) was awarded the Distinguished Unit Citation:
"The unit must display such gallantry, determination, and esprit de corps in accomplishing its mission under extremely difficult and hazardous conditions as to set it apart and above other units participating in the same campaign. "

In January 1944 the 5307th was formed by Special Order #3 by transferring the original volunteers from 3 separate travel and training Casual Detachments 1688A, 1688B, & 1688C. Charlie was transferred from 1688A. (http://www.marauder.org/SO3.htm )
On 10 August 1944, the Marauders were consolidated to the 475th Infantry. A decade, later, on 21 June 1954, the 475th Infantry was re-designated as the 75th Infantry, thus, Merrill's Marauders is the parent, 75th Infantry Regiment, from which descends the contemporary 75th Ranger Regiment.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merrill%27s_Marauders ).

Lineage: In September 1943 volunteers travelled to India on a transport with a battalion from the United States which was to become the 1st BN, a battalion from the Caribbean area which was to become the 2d BN, and a battalion comprised of men serving in the South & Southwest Pacific areas which was to become the 3d BN. On 10 Oct 43 they organized at Deogarh, India as the 5307th Composite Regiment, Provisional, and were activated 1 Jan 44 under U.S. Army Forces in China-Burma-India; 2 Jan 44 redesignated as the 5307th Composite Unit, Provisional, also known as GALAHAD Force and Merrill's Marauders; organized into three long-range penetration battalions and entered Hukawing Valley Burma on 12 Feb 44; assigned to the Northern Combat Area Command on 8 May 44 and operated behind Japanese front lines, capturing Myitkyina Airfield along the Irrawaddy river 17 May 44; 3d Bn defeated at Charpate 24 May 44 and 2nd Bn driven from Namkwi 26 May 44; battled at Myitkyina until captured city 3 Aug 44 where disbanded on 10 Aug 44 and assets transferred to 475th Infantry Regiment (the modern-day 75th Ranger Regiment).

Marriage
Charlie married Shirley Schaub from New Orleans, Louisiana on July 31, 1950. They were married in Phenix City, Russell County, Alabama which is just over the state line from Fort Benning, Georgia. Shirley was employed as a social worker, but had served with the Red Cross during World War II, presumably in France as she is listed on the passenger list of the MS John Ericcson, a military transport ship leaving France in September, 1945 - the end of the war in Europe.

Korean War ('Conflict'):
US Army Reserve Infantry (branch) unit 31, INF RGT, 7th INF DIV
Killed during the Battle at the Chosin Reservoir (11/27/1950-12/6/1950)
Service Number: RA 20105959
In January 1946, General MacArthur restored his former guard of honor to active service at Seoul, Korea, assigning the 31st to the 7th Infantry Division. For the next 2 years the 31st Infantry performed occupation duty in central Korea, facing the Soviet Army across the 38th Parallel. In 1948, the occupation of Korea ended and the regiment moved to the Japanese island of Hokkaido, occupying the land of its former tormentor. When North Korean troops invaded South Korea in the summer of 1950, the 31st Infantry was stripped to cadre strength to reinforce other units being sent to Korea. In September, the division was restored to full strength with replacements from the U.S. and Koreans hastily drafted by their government and shipped to Japan for a few weeks training before returning to their homeland as members of American units. The 31st Infantry returned to Korea as part of MacArthur's United Nations "X Corps" tasked with invading Inchon, taking Seoul and then North Korea.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/31st_Infantry_Regiment_(United_States) )
The first landings at Inchon occurred September 15; the 31st landed on September 19 and took responsibility of the zone south of Seoul highway. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:31st_Infantry_Inchon.jpg They engaged in heavy fighting with North Korean soldiers as X Corps took back Seoul. Afterwards X Corps proceeded into North Korea towards the Yalu River at it's border with Chineese Manchuria. After serveral warnings by China threatening involvement in North Korea, American and U.N. commanders believed China would not risk war, and that any Chinese soldiers in North Korea were in small numbers. After the successful campaigns at Inchon and Seoul the war seemed to be almost over. Soldiers were told they'd be home for Christmas. They were surprised at the Chosin Reservoir in late November as the 30,000 U.N. troops were surrounded by 60,000 Chinese. A brutal battle lasting 17 days ensued in freezing weather over extremely rough terain. U.N. forces retreated out of North Korea which was recaptured by China and the North Koreans. U.N. forces lost nearly 6,000 men in this battle and another 7,000 non-battle casualties many due to the cold weather; while the Chinese lost 19,000 in battle and another 29,000 non-battle casulties. The war dragged on for another two and half years.

"During the battle, UN casualties were buried in temporary grave sites along the road. Operation Glory took place between July to November 1954, during which the dead of each side were exchanged." The remains of nearly 4,000 US Soldiers and Marines were returned, with all but about 400 identified by name. Charlie's body was returned to the United States and he was buried in 1955.

Robert Proctor, the earliest American ancestor of the families to which this volume is devoted, first appears in this country at Concord, Massachusetts, where he was made. a freeman in 1643. He married, Dec. 31, 1645, Jane, the eldest daughter of Richard Hildreth of Concord and Chelmsford, the ancestor of the Hildreths of America, who died at Chelmsford in 1688, and whose younger daughter, Abigail, became the wife of Moses Parker.

In 1653 Robert Proctor, in connection with Richard Hildreth and twenty-seven others, petitioned the General Court for a grant of land six miles square, ' ' to begin at Merrimack river at a neck of land next to Concord river, and so run up by Concord river south, and west into the country to make up that circumference or quantity of land as is above expressed." The petition was granted. In 1654 Mr. Proctor removed to the new plantation which was organized, November twenty-second of that year, as a town under the name of Chelmsford. The first four or five of his children were born in Concord, the others in Chelmsford. His descendants resided in many of the neighboring towns, and at an early date some of them pushed back into the wilderness and settled in New Hampshire, Vermont and New York, and have since scattered over the West.

He died at Chelmsford, April 28, 1697. Letters of administration upon his estate were granted to Jane Proctor, executrix, July 13, 1697. In his will, dated March 10, 1695-6, he speaks of having already deeded lands to his sons Gershom, Peter, James, John, Samuel and Israel, and mentions son Thomas, to whom certain lands are given if he "live and return from Sea to New England;" also daughters Dorothy Barrett, Elizabeth Proctor, Sarah Chamberlain and Mary Bourne. Some of his children settled in what afterwards became the West Precinct, and later the town of Westford. His children were as follows:

I. Sarah, b. Oct. 12, 1646; m. Aug. 10. 1606. Thos. Chamberlain
II. Gershom, b. May 13.1648
III. Mary, b. Apr. 20. 165O; m. 1685. John Bourne
IV. Peter, b. 1652
V. Dorothy, b. 1654; m. Dec. 18. 1679, John Barrett. Jr.
VI. Elizabeth, b. Dec. 16, 1656; became in 1765 the third wife of Samuel Fletcher
VII. James, b. Jan. 8. 1658
VIII. Lydia, b. Feb. 19, 1660 ; d. Aug. 13. 1661
IX. John, b. Aug. 17. 1663
X. Samuel, b. Sept. 15, 1665
XI. Israel, b. Apr. 39, 1668
XII. Thomas, b. Apr. 30, 1671; went to sea and there Is no evidence that he returned

The arms of the Proctor family (see frontispiece) were granted A.D. 1436, and the shield is described as "argent with two chevrons sable, between three martlets sable." The chevron is used to distinguish those families who came over with William the Conqueror, and the martlet to mark the younger branches in contradistinction to the main stem.

There is evidence that John, Richard, George and Robert Proctor came across the water and settled in Massachusetts between the years 1635 and 1643. It is probable that some if not all of these four were descendants of the William above mentioned, although it is not possible at present to establish the fact of such descent.

It is not certain that any one of the four was related to any of the others. But coming from England so nearly at the same time, and settling as they did within such short distances of one another, it seems reasonable to suppose that some, if not all, of them were brothers, or at least that there was some relationship existing among them.

94 Annie & Lawrence lived at 155 Pearl Street, Cambridge, in 1923. Annie M. REILLY
 
95 The Hugh at 19 Beaver in Cambridge is most likely NOT this Hugh:
The 1920 census is a little confusing, because it lists a Hugh Riley, Mary E. (his wife), and an adopted daughter Mary. Hugh is 66, his wife is 62 (2 years older than than she should be?), and Mary the younger is 10 years old (about Mary Massison Riley's age). They are listed at 19 1/2 Beaver Street, Cambridge, MA. This is NOT the Hugh married to Annie Massison... Hugh & Mary E. are listed as immigrants in 1855, and naturalized in 1870; Hugh being born in Scotland, Mary E. in England. The adopted Mary was listed as born in Massachusetts; as were her parents. This Hugh was a street work laborer, and the Mary's didn't work. Besides, Mrs. Annie Riley is widowed by 1910. There IS a Mrs. Annie Riley listed at 290 Mass Ave., Cambridge in 1913?? (but no other family there).

96 Mrs. Mary A. Simon, widow of Stephen A. Simon, died at her home, 140 Essex Street this morning (March 11, 1912). Her husband was for many years the well known confectioner, and she carried on the business after his death. She leaves a son, Henry Simon, who still continues the business, a daughter, Mrs. Gertrude Whitcomb of Beverly, and three grandchildren. (from her obituary in the Salem Evening News, Monday, March 11, 1912.) Mary A SHORTELL
 
97 Rememberances of History:
the Depression: it was hard times, he was in it.
Pearl Harbor: Harry was working for the Beverly Post Office
JFK assination: He was watching TV; he had remarried and was living in Beverly; owned his own Simmons Heat Treating business, which he started in 1952.

He remembers his childhood home as an old house in Salem, MA. The family lived on the 2nd & 3rd floors over the bake shop. He recalls that in 1921, while he was being bathed in the tub upstairs, there was an earthquake and the water was rolling around the tub. His father picked him out of the tub and carried him downstairs and outside to Essex Street in front of the shop.

Harry dropped out of school (high school or college?) and started a metalurgy factory. He holds pattents for metals that the military uses. His sister's thought he was crazy for not going to college... turns out he did quite fine.


Harry was moved to an Englewood Hospice House on or before March 20, 2009 for palliative care.
Harry died (March 26, 2009) at 6:30 after spending a peaceful night. His wife Elizabeth Jean (BJ) and daughter Andrea were with him. He had received the Sacrament for the Sick on Tuesday. May he rest in peace. (Ann Misoda)
