Re: July 15, 1999 issue
It was a real thrill to see your information
from the 100-year old articles.My father,
William James Foley, was born in Mapleton in 1895, and until a few years ago we had an old
photograph of the Foley's Mines.
I believe that William Harvey Foley was my grandfather, and his wife was Ida Foley, nee
Marlatt.There was also a Florence Marlatt,
who married an Addy.I noticed all these
surnames in the articles you have posted.I
do not think the George Foley mentioned was
my father's uncle, since his uncle George was
younger than him.I am not sure if our
George was born in 1897 or 1906 - The SSID
shows a George Foley of Mapleton who was born
in 1906, but then he could not have been in
the 1899 paper.
Thanks Very Much for putting these on the genforum!!
