||Executive Director of SRAC, Deb Twigg and fellow Board member Susan
Fogel accepted the invitation from the Sauk County Historical Society in
Wisconsin this past week to participate in in the 100 year commemoration
of a Native American Indian effigy mound called "The Man Mound."
As part of the SRAC exhibit at the event, Twigg brought to light a new
piece of evidence that was overwhelmingly supported that may put the same
culture that made the effigy mounds several hundreds of miles away somehow
along the Susquehanna River region as well.

Thanks very much for the information on your very comprehensive pages.
My Grandfather came from Harray in the Orkneys and emigrated to New Zealand.
He wrote a 200 page memoir of his life in which he mentioned that two of
his fathers brothers went to America and that one was the town clerk in
Elmira. Using your pages I have been able to determine that they both went
Thomas Spence became City Clerk, Elimira City Government in 1880 and
his brother David was a shoemaker. Thomas appeared not to have married
and David and his wife Orpha didn't have any children so the line didn't
Once again thanks for your pages.Regards, Jim

$1 Gas Far Off.
It is not probable that some hitherto unknown substance will be discovered
as a substitute for gasoline according to the opinion of W. Lee Lewis,
famed inventor and professor of chemistry in Northwestern University.
"The attention of scientific men and of the industries is being directed
rather toward extracting more gasoline from crude petroleum and utilization
of low grade sources, such as the oil-bearing shales and sandstones," said
Professor Lewis. "Rapid progress is being made along the first line;
that is, in the development of so-called 'cracking processes' which increase
the yield of gasoline from crude petroleum. I think there is a great
promise in the so-called aluminum chloride process. If one distills
ten gallons of kerosene with aluminum chloride, he obtains some six or
seven gallons of gasoline. The difficulty is at present to recover
the aluminum chloride so it may be used over again. Chemists will
solve that problem soon however. Oil-bearing shales already are being
utilized for gasoline, and if the price goes up, will become an important
industrial source. As for the prediction of dollar gasoline recently
made in Congress, don't scrap your automobile yet. When the price
passes 40 or 50 cents a gallon, alcohol, which can be made for 25 cents
a gallon, can be used. The eighteenth amendment didn't cover automobiles.
These are the lines of progress: Better yields from present petroleum
sources utilization of low-grade sources, such as shales, better carburetors
and less wasteful engines, and, finally, if it comes to cases, a switching
to known combustibles, such as alcohol. I can't conceive of any miraculous
solution outside of these lines."
||Thank you again for this wonderful site. I live in Florida
now and have for numerous years and look forward to my trip back
to Canton every summer. This site just makes me feel closer to home
when I read it and sad because I miss my home town of Canton so much.
My sister called me last week so excited, she lives in Florida also,
she had just found your site (I'm sure I told her about it last year but
she didn't use the computer back then and forgot about it). Anyway
you have made these two sisters very very happy with your site. We
know more about Canton now than we did back when we lived there.
Keep up the good work and thanks to you and your assistants for the the
work you have done and continue to do for all Cantonian's near and far.

I've enjoyed your site very much and have gleaned much information
from it. Best site by far.
I have much information on George Hunter and Emeline Weeks. Arnold Hunter
entered Deerfield in 1800 or 1810. Arnold is Georges father. George shows
up on a later census. I have traced the Hunters as far back as possible
at present. They are presently trying to verify Arnold's grandfather Hunter.
The researchers are certain of who he is but have yet to get irrefutable
proof. The Weeks are easy to trace back but Emelines mother Lucretia was
tough. I have a ton of circumstantial as to her father mother and siblings.
I lack just that one bit a birth cert could do. I have Lucretia's marriage
cert. but as usual the parents were not filled in. I followed Emeline and
George to Warsaw PA. then on to Ill. From Ill to Ne. I have considerable
evidence on both Pa doings and NE. In Ne. George and Emelines son William
met his demise in a blizzard shortly after moving to Ne from Mn. His wife
Maryetta Wilson remarried. She left her new husband and with her son John's
family and accompanied by her youngest son they left on an immigrant train
for the Woodland Wa. Terr. The info they left behind was that they were
going to Walla Walla. A ruse I suspect. Any way her son John and his family
met up with their sister, my Great Great Grandmother, and her husband that
had preceded them to Woodland by a few years. Williams daughter was named
Mary Emmeline and she married Miles Standish Allen in Ne. in her mothers
home by her grandfather, George Hunter) administrations. I know I rattle
on but what I'm trying to say is I have much info to share on these families.
My e- mail is firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks and keep up the good
work. I use your site as the yardstick of comparisons of all sites I encounter
you being 100%.
