    Great article! I remember a story my mother told me about one of the Milton floods and the house near the river that was in the flood before our grandfather was born, Could it be this house? I need to call and talk to you about this. Thanks again!

      Hi Joe. We have found evidence that suggests Hiram and his family lived at the end of Church Lane near the Susquehanna. That would fit with what you’ve heard! We aren’t sure if this house is still standing though.

    I just notice that the posted times of these comments seem to be off? It was 10:32 AM when I posted not 2:32 PM!

      Hi Joe. It’s server time (which doesn’t account for your timezone) 🙂 I updated server time to Eastern Time though.

    Yes, another great amount of valuable information about Great Grandfather Hiram! Our dad Homer does resemble Hiram, and I see a clear likeness in Aunt Mary to our Great Grandmother Mary Ann (Lindner) Hagenbuch.
