  1. I am sorry to hear about your father. Your grandfather was my step-grandfather who was married to my father’s mother, Dorothy (Jackson/Bastille). I knew your father, though not well, because of the house in Belfast. I spent about 2 weeks there every summer as a child. Some of my fondest memories originated there or at the beach below. Percy (your Dad) was a very gracious host when we visited in the 1980s.
    Although my response is nearly a year late, I hope your father is finally at rest. We remember him as a broad minded, loving man who willed be missed.
    Sincerely,
    Bill Bastille

  2. I was doing some research on Edith Sumner Sloan Griscom and found out that Edith Rapello Griscom married a Percy O. Daley. I have a picture of Edith, Andrew and Joan when they were children. If I have the correct family, I would appreciate hearing from you.
