"SLIDING BILLY HAMILTON

Still remembered locally when I was growing up, but largely forgotten today, Billy Hamilton was Hammy and Susan Starr's grandfather and probably the most famous resident of Grafton Hill in the first half of the twentieth century.

THE ANDREWS FAMILY OF SPENCER MASSACHUSETTS

There were four Andrews brothers to the best of my recollection. Percy, who was Louise Sebring's grandfather and superintendent in the wire mill; Harold(Skippy), who ran the Shell Station on Main St.; Roswell, of Laureldale Farm, father of Carl and Albert; and Charlie, who ran the garage down near West Main Street School and was an early pilot. There was a sister who was David Hart's mother; I think her name was Mae. I'll defer to Marty Civin for the names of any siblings I missed.
