FROM DON NUGENT MARCH 2; SORRY I COULDN'T SEND THIS TO ELEANOR AS YOU REQUESTED DON, I SEEM TO HAVE LOST ELEANOR'S EMAIL ADDRESS WHEN VERIZON NUKED MY COMPLETE EMAIL CONTACT DIRECTORY. TRUSTING THAT SHE OR A CLASSMATE WILL PICK UP THIS MESSAGE:
THIS FROM ELEANOR GUEAR:
Tom - Thanks so much for the Reunion announcement! I DID NOT know that you would include pictures! I'll keep you posted on our plans
Thank you, John. I will visit www.homesteadishome.org. I hope you return to www.glover320 often.
This From Pat Wilkes:
As a former Trentonian, it was fun checking out this website and blogs. It really brought back many happy memories especially now since we're preparing for our 50th Hamilton High School West reunion. My high school days were the best of my life.
(Thanks, Pat; my school years were also a very important part of my life.)
This from Bob Chianese:
I just hooked up with your blog from a member of our 50th reunion committee-we're meeting in Hamilton this June.
I used to have call WA2AXE and remember the Trenton Sunday morning gang on 75 meters: my ham mentors were Gat, Zol, and Steve QJO. I had a Cal call sign many years (WA6LCC) until I forgot to renew my license at the 10 year renewal! I'm studying for a new General but it's hard.
I'm a retired university English prof. and look forward to our HHS reunion this summer. My wife is from Trenton High, also class of 1960.
(Many thanks for visiting Glover320, Bob. I hope you return often)

Hi Tom: That is a nice photo of my friend Art Holland. We were teamates on the Southards baseball team at that time. His brother Joe, also in the photo, was a County Freeholder and of course Art became one of the better mayors for the city of Trenton. They were living on Tyler Street at that time and joined other Chambersburg people in sharing political problems of the area. Best regarda

I am researching the evolution of the neighborhoods in Hamilton Township and in that research I am coming up with very interesting material which points to the true rural character that was once the location of huge farms. Right now I am looking for a very elusive subject: The Anderson Farm, which goes back to Revolutionary War years. I have found that the Anderson Farm homestead was located in the area of today's Atlantic and Greenwood Avenueand that the Anderson Farm extended all the way to Greenwood Cemetery; mute testimony to the size of these local farms.
Name: James Anderson ge in 1860: 62
Birth Year: about 1798
Birthplace: New Jersey
Home in 1860: Hamilton, Mercer, New Jersey
Post Office: Trenton

Two years before I was born, that local institution of learning that my generation knew of as "State Teachers' College" was being built over in Ewing Township. My only contact with that august institution was way back in 1952 when I decided that I would like to attend the school and get a teaching degree majoring in history. Sadly. the $900 annual tuition plus text books was too much for the very limited Glover family budget and I had to find work to help the family add to the budget. To this day I regret that those moneys weren't available. As it turned out, I ended up spending over 40 years in in a dead end "mom and pop" job selling bearings and industrial machine parts which ultimately ended up in a "Chapter 11" bankruptcy as the two principals retired and turned the business over to their sons
