Uncle Harold is my father's brother. *(James Arthur Ryan) My dad married Florence Blakney, an only child of Nora Fredericks-Blakney and Benjamin Blakney. My mom always joked about where they were married. She would say: "I was married in Suffern and have been sufferin' ever since!" Suffern, New York State. My mother, Florence was born May 15, 1908.
