Debbie, I think you can see by the responses here that few of those who post on Topix could help you, have any idea what you are talking about, or would read your book or any book.
If one of the papers did a story on your effort and printed your email address you might get actual stories you could use.

Thanks very much for your positive advice. Was my frustration starting to show?

I'd actually come to the conclusion that Topix had served it's purpose and I was beating a dead horse. But I got precisely the result I was hoping for here ~ 2 family members of Fort and Pavilion staff. Very gratifying and exciting to get to see people I loved dearly (and who don't hate us!) after so long. So it was worth it.

I'd love to talk to the paper about this and may follow that lead.

I am a Ticonderoga resident (for almost 2 yrs. now) who is starting the book people have been telling me to write my whole life. As a Pell descendant I used to live at the Fort and in the Pavilion, so my viewpoint is unique and I've got some good stories to tell. There are even more stories I want to hear, and for that I need you. I'm addicted to Topix, have gotten into some heated "debates" and expect some nasty comments from a relative or 2. But I'm sure that Topix is the best way to get started, and I plan to structure part of the book in the form of a blog. I don't want to violate Topix rules so please send personal information (such as names) only to [email protected] I'll be more than happy to credit anyone who helps, and I also assure you of complete anonymity if you wish. Don't worry about insulting me or my family, I'm used to it, and the juicier the stories, the better.
I worked at the Pavilion for 2 summers, 1960 & 1961. I have many wonderful memories of my time spent in service to the Pell family. You needed a good sense of humor and many times a blind eye, but we always had a great time of it. They could be demanding as to how they wanted things done, but that's what we were there for. Everything was done so tastefully. I have many questions to ask of you. If you think you might be interested, I'd love to sit down for a chat with you. I'd love to hear where everyone is now, and how their lives have turned out.
