April Snow

An inch of heavy wet snow with high winds today.  We'll be lucky to avoid a power outage.  The new leaves are holding the snow but maybe the wind will shake it off.

Added a few more items to Masner Events.  They reported a thief of $7.25 while they were all away working at a canning factory.  I didn't know there were canning factories in Rome. The family apparently came to New York from Germany in June of 1845.  I can't tie it down exactly because of the early date but based on the dates from the 1880 census for Mary/Anna Masner, b. Germany 1802, it appears they arrived June 6, 1845 and the surname was Maussner or that is what the immigration agent thought he heard. 

Added a new page to Family Events, Jefferson Vets B.  This is more of the obits and news articles I've found while looking for information on veterans buried in Jefferson county.  Someone hit by a train and another caught in old, new then, belt driven farm equipment.  The newspapers when into a lot of detail about injuries back then.
