Actually I have been contributing to SHAF since '94 or '95. Also to the Texas
Monument, same time frames.
John Howard comes frome Carbondale, a town 15 mins. from where I live In
Pleasant Mount, Pa. He sent me a really nice note a few weeks ago.
I hope to move to a new place (for an old guy), by the end of Oct. An 1826
Pa. Farmhouse (like a center hall eyebrow Col.), in Bradford County. Tony
Turners 132Pa. Vol. Inf. country. Hopeing to have Tony and Carol over for
good stuff and research.
I would never compare you and Brian. You are both a credit to those who love
our history, and wish to learn from it.
