Aunt Louise

Life was not so dull as these attitudes might suggest. Newspaper items tell of occasional band concerts and annual Christmas parties in the new chapel. Now and then on a warm, pleasant evening, employees and their families got together for outdoor suppers of oysters, creams, cakes, nuts, fruits, lemonades, etc. Such events brightened considerably the end of a long working day.--Harry Poindexter

I am so happy to have found this site. I was raised near by the Woolen Mills, Market St, Chesapeake St. area in the 1960's. My father was Raymond Via (Puzzum). Most of my family worked and lived in the Woolen Mills. My name is Beckie Via Lee. I will check back often.
