Do you research RING and would this be of interest to you? There didn't seem to be any article with it but..... Tuesday Morning May 6, 1919 edition of 'The Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette' (Fort Wayne, Indiana), page 3, has a fairly large photo of Julia RING (must've been an actress??) with caption under it which reads: JULIA RING Assisted by James Norval in 'Divorced,' heading big Keith week-end all-feature bill opening at The Palace this afternoon.

Oh so close with the BLAIR post in Md. & PA. Darn! Thanks for sharing Donna. Howard
from Page 3 of the Sat., November 12, 1955 issue of 'The Chillicothe Constitution-Tribune' (Chillicothe, Missouri) ~~~ RETURNED FROM WISCONSIN - Mr. and Mrs. J. F. PFEIFER and son, George PFEIFER of Los Angeles, California returned Thursday from Kanauha, Wisconsin. While gone they attended the wedding of Mr. PFEIFER's great niece, Miss Phylis DIEDRICH and Mr. Norbert BLAIR. The wedding was solemnized on November 7 at the Holy Cross Catholic Church. Reception and dinner for 150 guests were held at Van Abeis in Holland Town.
well good mornin' fella! feeling better yet?
I'm fine now, only lasted 24 hours. Got to get ready for work. Started partime since my retirement, with Kirkland's at the locale mall. Lot's of fun. meet alot of nice people, and a few not so nice. Have a great day Donna.
well good for you! have a great day too.
Correction: the Nov. 17, 1955 issue of same paper has a reprint of exact same article about PFEIFER/DIEDRICH/BLAIR on page 2, under heading Interesting New Notes of Local Happenings of the Week... it's much clearer print. I misread the spellings of these two ... should be Kanauna, Wisconsin (not Kanauha) ... and ... Van Abels in Holland Town (not Van Abeis).
Don't know if this will figure in anywhere but I found this in the 1880 census of Catlin, Chemung Co., NY: OSTRANDER, Solomon age 59 b. NY, Hannah age 57 b. NY, Alice age 24 b. NY, Emma age 20 b. NY, Adelburt age 22 b. NY and his wife Delia age 22 b. NY...Maybe Nellie's father and Delia's father been brothers? In 1880 Nellie was 15, Alfred was 17 and Delia 'above' was 22.
Thanks, this is really mysterious. I have no idea where Delta/Delia came in. IF she married him when he was in NY them perhaps I might find a death notice for her after Bradley was born. In that paragraph posted last night it says Alfred was in business in Olean, NY. That is the next county west of Allegany where he was born.It is Cattaugaurus County. Wonder if I can get death info for those years. Bradley was born in 1888. I think this is going to ba an interesting one to research.
I have a few stray BLAIR. Carl Almon BLAIR SR. born September 18, 1883, Sheffield, PA died February 11, 1965 in Kane, PA married Maude Shirley Rendt who was born in NY and died in PA. They had child Carl AlmonJR. If any Blairs need this line I think I have a bit more info,
Checking in at 8:05 AM here in Cool. Today I am researching the Woolfolk family/surname.
your guy!......... from BRITISH COLUMBIA DEATH INDEX: 1872 to 1979 ~~ NORBERT EDWARD BLAIR ... The name is right.. the place Vancouver is right... its the date that might be wrong.. i am only going by what my dad and his cousin Carlton McDonald told me... so if this is a boating accident.. but then again maybe he just died in Vancouver.. but to know if this is the right Norbert Blair .. I would have to know if list his parents as John and Mary Margert (O'Reilly) Blair, can anyone view this and send me the infor .. from what Donna has posted below.. this has been driving me nuts for years

The race of the Henry W Smith family I sent you was black. The son I wrote as Anistin(Austin) was in the State Hospital in Preston in 1930.
Do you live in a place called 'Cool'? I have not researched WOOLFOLK but know that family was one of the early ones in Madison Co. TN about 1820ish!
I posted on the OSTRANDER genforum page and got a big break. I have not had a chance to read it all , but think that Delia and Nellie/Nettie are sisters. More later when I get home.
Hello everyone. Sounds like some of you are getting some good leads. How exciting. I haven't been able to do much, can't sit at computor very long. Tomorrow I go for my MRI and hope we can settle in on something. Twelve weks is too long for me. Just wanted you all to know I think of you often not just when you can help me. Love Toni
From what you sent me, I see that James W. and Delia are sister and brother. James married Sarah Ward had NETTIE, remarried after Sarah's death to Louise R. POESONS. They had from that mariaage Ellis and NELLIE (nicname for Josephine?)
So it boils down to (I think), Alfred B. Norton married Nellie b. 1865 daughter of James Warner and Louise POESONS. So he is the son-in-law of James W. Ostrander not JAMES H.
