    This wonderful old photo is of Stuart James Lentz (Sr.) during his hobo years before he settled down to work in Lentz Poultry in Baltimore. Stuart is the man on the left.
  • James C. Green or James League? (261 KB)
    Because of recent contacts with a new relative on the ancestors of the Green side, we are not sure who the man in this photo is exactly. His photo was passed down to Letty by her Dad, Julian Ross Greene,Sr. He said the man in the photo was his grandfather or ggrandfather, although he never knew either man. However, the companion photo in the same frame was a photo of a woman with pencil writing on the back saying only "Mrs. Green". Her photo has now been identified as Letty's ggrandmother, Anna E. Devinney League. So I am not sure who this man is exactly. He may be James League, Letty's ggrandfather.
  • Program sheet for an event in 1910 showing Bergers (90 KB)
    This is a program sheet from an event (parade?) showing listings for the Officers of the Veteran Volunteer Fireman's Association and the Sons organization listed. This sheet shows Andrew J. Berger, John M. Berger and P.(Pierre) J. Berger listed as officers and members.
  • Ann Eliza Devinney League, Letty's ggrandmother. (198 KB)
    This photo was misidentified by Letty as her grandmother, Marion League Green. Recently, I located a relative from the League line, who also has a copy of this photo. His copy was more completely identified by relatives on his side. Letty's copy only said on the back in pencil, "Mrs. Green" , which I think was mistakenly written by my father or his sister, Marion. Remember they never really knew their grandparents as there was no contact. This photo has been identified by Bruce Ray from an inscription on the back. This inscription said, "Mrs. A. E. League sister, of Mrs. Thomas Earp". Bruce's great Aunt Sue identified the picture as that of our ggrandmother, Ann Eliza Deviney(Devinney), daughter of Eliza Thornton and James Devinney. More to come as I explore these resources. There is an amazing resemblance between Ann Devinney and Letty. I have the same ears, lips, hair and eyes. It is really amazing.

This valuable trumpet is in a private collection outside the family. The trumpet sat for years in a pawn shop on Belair Road in Baltimore until it was bought and auctioned to a private collector. These trumpets were used in parades, carried with the wide end up and flowers were placed in the opening. The rope seen here is original and it still has its original cover.
  • John M. Berger & Chrisfield Fire Dept. Plaque (155 KB)
    This is a close-up of a plaque at the Crisfield Maryland Fire Department commemorating the memory of departed members, including John M. Berger, Letty's maternal ggrandfather.
