    Is proud that this speech was given just mere miles from where he grew up...even if it was 60 some years before he was born :)

      the Damon House? Oliver Damon was my great-great-great-great-grandfather.

        My dad grew up a block away from there and pointed out often.

      •  Yet another likely connection (0+ / 0-)

        Oliver Damon isn't my direct ancestor, but he's definitely related by marriage. Maynard is one name. Fitzwilliam NH is about 20 miles from my home and quite a few of my ancestors lived in the area. And Captain Joseph White married Lydia Rogers way back in 1660. This is just so much fun, isn't it?

        No, I wasn't aware of the Damon House. Now I need to expand my Damon tree a bit. I've spent plenty of time in and near Wauwatosa in a previous life, though.
