Grumpy,

You are the first person I've ever "met" who lived in Masonville, New York.

Masonville is significant to me as my dear beloved great aunt lived on the main drag for most of her life and she lived to age 97!

I now wonder if her home is still standing. It was a classic Victorian -wrap around porch, high ceilings, hand carved doors and cabinetry - antiques throughout.

She was a fine woman and much loved in the community - she passed around 1980.

I wonder if anyone there would remember her - her name was Marion Burnside.

Thanks for giving me an opportunity to reminisce. My grandparents all lived/live nearby in Mount Upton, Sidney, Afton, Coventryville and I was raised in Norwich.

Small world.

Peace - MG
