Does anyone have any information on William Abner Eddy? He was one of the world's most foremost authorities on kites. I believe he is buried in New Jersey.

I would like to hear from anyone who could help me.

Nelson :

Very helpful. Thank you. I am sending you some information in the mail on William Abner Eddy which might be of some interest to you. I am wondering if W. A. had any brothers or sisters - would you mind looking this up for me?

Thanks again.

Hi Peter, Thanks for the paper you had sent to me. I have checked throught all of my Eddy Family in America publications and there was nothing that might lead you to your thinkings on the kite making and so forth. but I would suggest hat you WWW.EDDYFAMILY.COM and follow through as I am sure that the Eddy Family in America Association will have something in their files. I am not sure of there address but i think that it is Eddyville, Mass.
