There is an Island in Jamaica Bay that was once owned by the Schmeelk family. It was called Ruffle Bar.To the best of my knowledge it is not under water it was taken by the state as a bird sanctuary.My mother used to spend her summers on this Island as a child in the 40's and 50's.My Grandfather, Lawrence John William Schmeelk, would occasionally rent a boat and go back to Ruffle Bar, just for the memories.This was in the 70's. AS far as I know My great Grandfather had Two Children, My grandfather and My Aunt Margurite.My Grandfather had two daughters, My mom and Aunt Barbara. Aunt Margurite had only one son, Charlie. I am wondering who you are!
