This is great! I didn't know that Mark Lenze, my Father-in-Law, had commisioned getting his wares online. That, and I've not seen that picture of Grandpa Lenze before. Tell Mark that his family living in England say "HI!" .. Thanks
Thomas Roback - 2008-01-03
Well apparently...my Father-in-Law sold a picture to you as a collector. my apologies, but all the same, if you see him, say hi for us! thanks.
Marks Comments - 2008-01-03
Yes... Mark has supplied me with a good portion of my collection over the years. I appreciate his help and I will keep those bits of history preserved the best that I can.

My mother was "Sis" Luella A Hauber, daughter of George Hauber & Amanda Foster Hauber who lived on 517? Center Street from the time he built his home there in 1901. As a child we used to ride up and down in the elevator which was in the house because my grandmother had not legs. The last time I was in St Marys was after my cousin Paul Haubers'funeral several years ago. I spent my summer vacation there, it was like going to paradise to me. Hank Foster who lived on Johnsonberg Rd(Farm) was my mothers'cousin. Harry Hauber is my cousin also. Glad you are there. Anne Pierce

Wow! I grew up in St. Marys and was a classmate of yours. I don\'t get back much since my parents passed, but I started collecting Straub beer bottles a few years back. It was great seeing all of the unique Straub items.

Jim Cheatle - 2012-12-11
Great site.... I am pretty sure the picture on Center St in 1908 is almost directly in front of the house I lived in. Also, in the letter to Ignatius Garner, my G.G.Great Grandfather is the Mr Cheatle referenced. I had found record of that purchase at the Courthouse. and the seller was Adam Dillen

I was granted the privilege of being able to submit an article to the St. Marys Daily Press on my geneaology efforts. This article ran on 10/8/11. I was delighted to see that you have a calendar for the GOLDEN HARVEST DAIRY FARM, operated by the Lenze Family, which is referenced a great deal in my article. My great grandmother, Loretta Lenze Goetz, was the 3rd and final generation of the Lenze family to operate the farm. My Grandfather, James Wilfred Goetz, grew up on that farm from the age of 7 to 17 and we have been back to St. Marys many times in the last 2 years. He is now in a dementia unit as he approaches his 88th birthday in September. I was actually given your name by Mark D. Lenze when I was visiting with him at his Shadows of teh Past Antique store, but I did not follow up with you. Please contact me at TimWWJD@AOL.com. I intend to be in St. Marys on the Saturday, May 11th (the day before Mother\'s Day). Thank you very much.

Are any of your items for sale? You have some great items. I sent you an email a while back, but didn\'t hear anything. I am interested in old bricks and clay pieces, as well as sewer tile pieces and advertising. Looking forward to hearing from you.
