On Sunday last, our museum received a visit from Margaret Tyrrell of Grand Island, N.Y.. Mrs. Tyrrell is a daughter of Emma Evans Hall, who was a student of Pat Burr and taught with Pat at ECS for a short period of time. They became close friends and remained in touch. Pat had given Mrs. Hall a 30 by 40 painting of sunflowers and Mrs. Tyrrell wished to donate that painting to our museum in her mother’s memory.
On Monday, Ann Gavenda & Earl Roth visited with Mrs. Holly Dill of Florida. Mrs. Dill is a grand-daughter of Harry Bonney. Mr. Bonney was in partnership with Roy Porter in the produce business. Mr. & Mrs. Bonney resided at 20 Chapel Street with their three daughters (Jane, Elizabeth & Suzanne). Mrs. Dill was in the area attending memorial services for her aunt and wanted to know more about Elba and her family.
