I just want to let you know how much I appreciate the pictures and info about Harry Von Tilzer. He composed many of my favourite songs. While researching his life, I came across some rare old video footage where he describes the writing of a popular song to the audience. I thought you might be interested in this link.
Again, thank you so much for this wonderful information.
So good to hear back from you! I am just beginning to work on the Kiger/Mitchell side. The Martin side has been exhausting! ha. And I have over 1200 hits on hints right now, very overwhelming. Some of them are false since folks will grab a name without being sure it is a for sure thing. Sigh....so I have to ferret through it all. Great to hear from you. Maybe one day we can get our fringe family's together for a reunion.
I just had a warm moment when I saw the pic of Aunt Rene and Uncle Tom. TY for sharing it. I am the granddaughter of Faye Mitchell Kiger and Rene's great niece. I remember her well, all those cookies and tea she gave us in Ogburn Station. I am working on our tree and appreciate all your hard work as well. All the best...Jan
