“Your columns on so many areas of Bucks County history are often shared among our members and with state DAR leaders. We have thoroughly enjoyed learning so much about the area’s history. I, for one, was particularly happy to read your column on “Cuckold Town” to finally learn about the status of the house at the corner of Rt. 413 & Bridgetown Pike. I have wondered about that building since I moved to the area years ago!”

– Christie Caywood, 2nd Vice Regent, Washington Crossing Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution

“Your description of Griffith was one of the best PORTRAITS i have ever read. Ranulph Bye could not have have done a more superior portrait in an oil painting! Congratulations on an outstanding piece of writing.”

“I have been reading and enjoying your page in the Intel for quite a while now and keep saying I should email and tell you so.  So here it is.  I really enjoy your articles.  We live not far from today’s story on Achey’s Mill so that was really fun to see.  Keep it up!  Glad to see you grandchildren are interested also.”

– Sue Gwilliam
