Harry Kaserman, whom you have the Photo of, was my great-grandfather's cousin. He was a WWI era soldier, a successful entertainer and had a second career serving in several capacities with the City of New Philadelphia's muncipal government (successful entertainers didn't make nearly as much money in the 1920's as they do in the present day). Harry married the former Opal Redman and they had one child, Fred Kaserman (mentioned in the original posting). Harry was a board member of the First Evangelical and Reformed Church (now the First United Church of Christ) and passed on in 1975. (I was eight at the time and distinctly remember the funeral. I kept wondering why uncle Harry was so quiet and looked so funny.) His widow, Opal, lived another 23 years at their house on the corner of Beaver Ave and Kaserman Ave and died in 1999.
Founded in 1804, New Philadelphia is a town of about 19,000 people located in Tuscarawas County in east-central Ohio, in the foothills of the Appalacian Mountains. It is at the junction of U.S. 250 and Interstate 77 and is notable for the history of Scoenbrunn, a community of Chistianized Delaware Indians who settled there in 1772 under the leadership of the Moravian Missionary Rev David Zeisberger: Also a port on the Ohio-Erie Canal and notable for it's proximity to Amish Country.
