I think I met him. He came out to the back deck a little unsure of who this stranger was taking pictures. I walked over and introduced myself. He'd never heard of The Batavian before. He apparently doesn't go online.
I believe that. I will clear you with him.. He is a great guy. He and my Aunt Betty raised 5 kids there. He grew up in Stone Church (Bergen) and went into the navy in the 50's and was thought to be lost at sea in a typhoon. The ship he was on had put into port only the navy did not know it. His family, including my mother, were on TV in Rochester in the 50's because they thought he was lost with his ship. He retired from Lapp Insulator in Le Roy after 2001.
