Hi Lynn,

I seem to recall a story of Andrew's mother waving goodbye to him as he sailed away. He kept waving until he couldn;t see her anymore. Andrew and Makrina Leschak Mikridge had 13 children. Adam and Elizabeth died of childhood diseases. Vladimir died in 1916 at the age of 2 from burns. John died at Anzio in 1944. Peter, Theodore and Ludmilla all died in the 1980's. My Aunt Mary died i 1998 at the age of 96. She was still living in thefamily home. My mother Olga had returned to live with her after spending 35 yrs. in New Jersey. As I mentioned before she is still in Jermyn. Remaining siblings are Elizabeth in Fla, Anastasia in NJ and Walter in CA.

Mymother says her father was very strict. I remember him being so kind to me, sitting on his lap when he listened to the radio. The grape vine he planted is still in the back yard. I used to help him pick grapes. He put in what I believe was the first sewer line in Jermyn. He started it and helped other neighbors hook into the line. That was in the early 1900's. He put in a first floor laundry room. He also built a raised revolving clothesline so my grandmother wouldn't have to trudge in teh mud to hang clothes.

I'll email you some photos of Andrew.

Cousin Karen
