Notes for Clare Margaret Scogin
The family had a big Thanksgiving dinner at 812. When Tom and Hank got married, they brought their wives (Nancy and Laura), as did Dick (with Janet). They brought the grandkids, it was a big event.

Traditionally, the “men folks” would go out into the garden and play touch football, to get out of the way of the “women” who cooked the dinner, had a few drinks, and caught up on the family gossip. Many of the dishes were prepared ahead to lighten the cooking load.

One year, probably about 1970, the families gathered, The boys went out to play football, and the women were in the kitchen. The drink of choice in the kitchen were wiskey sours. Someone must have brought a new recipe.

When the guys came in after a couple of hours of playing football, we said “when is dinner, how come we can’t smell the turkey?”

The answer was that someone forgot to turn on the oven. Since the event had about 30 people, it was a huge turkey, probalby more than 25 pounds. Which means that the turkey takes 5 or more hours to bake.

I don’t remember what we ate, but it was not turkey. Might have been just the potatoes and other vegtables, and of course, mince meat and pumpkin pies. Lots of pies.

Aunt Rita Scogin Kiley writes: " she was MY pal. She was the only one besides my Grandma Scogin that ever helped me with any school work. Grandma drilled me on spelling and I was the top speller in my class."

When Andrew was killed in a railroad accedent, Daniel J Farrell courted Nellie. Nellie’s sisters, the Burke girls, bribed Harry’s older brothers to call him Andrew12

Notes for Andrew Harry (Spouse 1)
Claimed that he worked for his Dad’s construction firm in 1913 building St Bridget’s School, which he attended starting in 1915. The school constuction site was across the street from his family home. His dad’s firm was building the school. Andrew says that when he was 3, he pulled a wagon to the construction site. The wagon carried blocks of ice for the men working on the school. Thus he was helping, and one could stretch it that he was part of the crew.
