So, I know everyone is on pins and needles wondering if I got a reply to the letter I sent out. The answer is, yes! Today in the mail I received a reply from Clellon. He said his mother is a family member. (How excited am I you ask, I am on cloud nine)!
He remembers Great Grandpa Dennis and said he does not know if his mother was notified of Dennis burial. He also remembers going to Hudson Falls and Glen Falls as a child.
He did give me some other info, but I am pressed for time. I will write him again and see if he gives more information. The power of the pen is a wonderful thing!
