|Michael McCue||RE: Anna Wallace|
no, i am not. I did go to St. Joseph's School in Spring Valley, NY with their grandson, Edwin Kelly.
Could give you his e-mail. He lives in New Hampshire.
|Edwin Kelly||Edwin and Anna Wallace|
Joyce--I am Edwin and Anna Wallace's grandson formerly of Spring Valley NY. My full name is Edwin Wallace Kelly. My mother was their only child.
My grandmother, Anna "McGinnis" Wallace, was born Anna ONeill. Her brothers were Charles, Frank and Bill. In early childhood, I am told, the siblings went to separate families to be raised. My grandmother lived with the McGinnis family, thus the name.
My mother, Marjorie Wallace Kelly is still living and about to turn 90. I will ask her about the relationship between her mother and Jennie. I believe I recall, but want to be sure.

* * * *
Wappingers Falls, N. Y.
Sir in regard to my claim for Pension No. 697,838. In reply to call for claimants history of disability, only I would say that I have lived at so many places that it would be of no use for me to write of them as I don’t know of any one that could do me any good or harm. The most of my life since the war has been spent in Fishkill Planes, Dutchess County,
New York and Wappingers Falls, same county. As for occupation has been first farmer, road builder, cutting timber back, Agent Clerk in store, lighting rod agent, laborer in woolen mill, guard in prison, teamster and general laborer. At any thing I could get. Could keep none for long as I lost to much time. I am now working in a factory, but was laid up half my time with rheumatism. I wrote Canard & Co. a full statement of my case
and asked for blanks and information as to different matters required under the law. I got some blanks that might as well be brown paper for all information I can get out of them. I asked for information in regard to persons that I know that they can give, but not any word did they send. Now can I not withdraw my power of Attorney from them and do all business with Pension Officer? I think they are complying me to earn $25.00 for them instead
of me complying them to do business for me. I have a plain case and can get proof of it, but am poor and will have to take time as I can get it as I cannot do any thing with my proof without seeing the parties myself. I have a hard time to get along with my family and dare not lose a day that I am able to work as I should lose my pay if I did and I am not able to do any thing else. I was out sick six weeks in April and May and you know that is a bad loss for a working man.
I do not see that I want an Attorney there as I have some one here to show me what to do and pay for it and I get nothing from them. Our Congressman from here advised me to apply 5 years ago and sent me papers, but I could not think it was all right to apply for pension as Law No 2, as I could get ***
get my own living, but when I see men working with me that can do more hard work in one day than I can in a week, getting $16 and $30.00 per month, and I saw more service in front than they did, I think I ought to get some help to keep me and my little children together. I can give you a plain statement of my case from 16 years old up to the present time and back it by evidence of people that
knew me. As far as I can remember I never had but 2 Doctors before I enlisted and then only for child diseases. One of them doctored me after I came home for rheumatism but he has been dead 15 years. The first Sergt. of my company is living, Capt. and a number of comrades that I can get for evidence that knew me before I went out and after I came back. Please advise me can * * * *
the power of attorney as their papers is all Dutch to me. I don’t know what they want nor how to make out the papers for them. I am too poor to employ lawyers and do the work myself. Hoping to hear from you soon. I remain very truly yours in F. C. L.

CLAIMS $3,000 DAMAGES
A summons and complaint in a peculiar supreme court suit was served on Frank Campbell, a young man of this village, by Constable Wiltsie, on Saturday afternoon, says the Fishkill Times. It will be remembered that a little more than a month ago, Campbell was arrested, charged with being drunk one night in Glenham, and shooting a revolver, the ball of which passed into the house occupied by Uriah Wallace and wife and into their sleeping room. Campbell pleaded guilty and was fined and discharged. Now Wallace has instituted suit in supreme court, naming damages of $3,000 because of that shot. According to the complaint the shot produced a great shock to Mrs. Wallace, occasioning nervous illness, doctor's fees, medicine, loss of companionship, services, etc. Attorney Doughty, of Fishkill Landing, is counsel for the plaintiff. An answer must be served in 20 days or judgement will be taken by default. The result of this suit will be awaited with considerable interest."

County Mourns Wallace
Former Ramapo Supervisor Edwin E. Wallace, a man who championed and won many Rockland reforms, lost a long battle with cancer yesterday afternoon at Good Samaritan Hospital where he died at age 65.
Mr. Wallace, who was Spring Valley’s postmaster at his death, served from 1954 to 1963 at Town Supervisor in Ramapo and had been chairman of the Rockland County Board of Supervisors in his last year in office.
His start in public life came in 1951 when he was appointed village treasurer in Spring Valley, a post he held until persuaded to run for supervisor, in 1953.
In that election, Mr. Wallace, a Democrat, defeated Republican Supervisor Charles Lack and became the first member of his party to carry the township since the early 1900’s
His victory began a string of five triumphs that won him reelection four times in Ramapo, then a Republican township.
Mr. Wallace was regarded as a “man who was ahead of his time” because of the many reforms and progressive projects he championed without concern for “political risk.”
Many observers felt that Mr. Wallace in acting like “a man who got things done” and “not as a politician” cost him the election in 1953 to Councilman R. Warren Magrath.
His efforts during the decade as supervisor are marked by the County Health Department, the county sewer program, the County Office Building, the Ramapo Town Hall, and the Town Incinerator.
While other balked, Mr. Wallace fought for and won a reappraisal program in Ramapo - a highly unpopular move in the day of rising taxes.
Former Ramapo Trustee C. E. Erickson and trustee John Callaghan, both Republicans who served under Wallace, concurred that Wallace forgot politics the day after Election Day.
“Ed had a profound respect for anyone elected by the people and that respect crossed party lines. He was able to resolve political difference and get down to the practical matters of getting the job down,” Callighan said.
Mr. Wallace had supported the establishment of the County Health Department and guided it during tits infancy as chairman of the Rockland Board of Health, a post he held until 1962.
Former County Democratic Chairman William A. Zeck, calling Mr. Wallace a “truly great and dedicated public servant,” said that “virtually every County program involving public health bears the authorship stamp of Ed Wallace.”
He spearheaded the drive during the mid-1950’s for a county seweer program that ultimately led to its success in a referendum in the 1960’s and is now being implemented.
At the Town level, Mr. Wallace transformed the part-time operations of town government into a full-time job. He was instrumental in the construction of a new town hall, an incinerator and it was under his administration that the first building code in Ramapo was adopted.
Mr. Wallace, upon winning the chairmanship of the board of supervisors in 1963, instituted part-time administrative duties at the county level, something negligible in the past.
Former Spring Valley Mayor John Balogh and his successor Mark Epstein remember Wallace’s efforts in breaking “the barrier against Jews in the Spring Valley Fire Department.”
Balogh recalled, “Nineteen years ago Wallace decided he’d force the department to break the barrier by putting his son-in-law Peter Kelly and Epstein up for membership at the same time, recommending Epstein first and then his son-in-law.”
Mr. Wallace, who operated an insurance agency in Spring Valley from 1927 to 1963, was born in that village on Sept. 2, 1901 in his father’s house on Lawrence Street.
At the age of 13, he went to Wyoming to be a cowboy, but later returned to Rockland to work for the Hudson and Manhattan Railroad and later became the chief clerk for the Erie Lackawanna.
Before starting his insurance agency, Mr. Wallace was the manager of the Campbell and Strickland Auto Agency in Spring Valley and later the general manager of an oil company in Mahwah.
Mr. Wallace a member of the Rockland Hook and Ladder Company in Spring Valley for 42 years and its president for 12 years.
He was also a member of the Lion’s Club (28 years) the Haverstraw Elks (12 years) the Knights of Pythias (11 years) and St. Joseph’s Church, where he was a trustee.
Survivors include his wife, Mrs. Anna Wallace; a daughter, Mrs. Majorie F. Kelley of Spring Valley; two sisters, Mrs. Ruth Claff and Mrs. Maude Sidgmore, both of Spring Valley; three grandchildren and a cousin, Mrs. Grace Rooney of Spring Valley.
Haverstraw Lodge, BPO Elks will hold services at 7 p. m. tomorrow. The Spring Valley Lions Club will follow with services at 7:30, and Spring Valley Fire Department will hold services at 8 p. m. The Knights of Pythias will also hold services.
A requiem mass will be celebrated at 10 a. m. Friday at St. Joseph’s R. C. Church, Spring Valley. Interment will be in St. Anthony’s Cemetery, Nanuet.
Visiting hours will begin at 3 p. m. today at the Sniffen Funeral Home, 154 West Central Ave., Spring Valley. [Unknown newspaper.]

Photos of Henrietta Nauheim's gravestone (and many thousands of other Jewish gravestones) are online at www.jewishdata.com. So I just added a transcription of Henrietta's gravestone, based on the photo at jewishdata.com. If you don't think it's necessary, there is no need to accept the edit request.
