One thought on “December McCormack Birthdays!

  1. Very interesting site indeed. I must me your third cousin, as you state my sister, widow of Edward James Dorstewitz, is your third cousin.

    I am the widow of an interesting man in his own right, Edward Thomas (Ted) Strong. Ted was a pioneer of the sport parachuting industry. My name is Marcia Lucretia LaVanway. I remember my Great Grandmother Catherine Fedilia McCormack pretty well, though I was a child when she died. My mother, Margaret Louise was her only Granddaughter and was quite spoiled by her.

    Our Father passed away December 2nd 2015 and thus I have been archiving photos and found my Grandpa “Doc’s” senior high school yearbook, and so was researching Ithica High School, when I found your site. nice work, great writing and very entertaining.
