Jerald Family Data
  Note:  Person in each generation that is continued is shown in bold.

Hi Joyce

The attached file is an excel spreadsheet of the Jerald Family from the information complied by my Mom, Lorena Jerald Penno, and my cousin, Lorita Smith  Spidel.  Mom spent a couple of years in the 80s trying to compile family data.  She is connected to the Howe and Shaw families in town with more distant connections to the Clarks.  The stuff she has includes more than Ive put on the spreadsheet as well as lots of pictures and newspaper clippings.

I noted in going through your web site last night that there is a spelling error on the cemetery listing for the Jeralds.  It shows 2 rs (Jerrald).  The listings include her parents and grandparents and her Uncle Frank.  I was also surprised not to find them listed in the Richmond Township census data.  They bought the farm from the Bingham Estate in 1834.  Moms records indicated that they lived in town for a while when the farm house burned until a new one was  built.  We had sales slips from the lumber yard for purchase of some of the materials for the house.  My parents bought it from my Grand parents in 1949 (I think) and sold it to the Bensons in 1956.

I loved the thing in your web site about the Halloween windows.  They were fun.  One other thing I loved in the 50s were the Christmas Friday nights.  The merchants gave tickets with the sale of merchandise.  Then every Friday night (after the stores closed) they had a drawing.  A flatbed was pulled up on South Main in front of the old diner.  Bill Taylor was always the master of ceremony.  They played Christmas Carols over loud speakers and the whole town gathered.  I never hear The First Noel without being transported to a snowy Friday night in Mansfield.

Thanks for a couple of fun days of memories.
