Re: “The Palace in Ginter Park

Such a pleasure to read your article Eddie!

I remember your wagon! I was once the oh-so-proud neighborhood May Queen during one of your wonderful pageants. Gibson, you and Curry, and you Eddie, all are treasures kept in my own long ago stored away trunk, a treasure-filled corner of my mind that I very much enjoy visiting from time to time.

Learning what you have accomplished with your lives is something I hardly have words for. I wonder if any of you even remember little Mary Grace, who was pulled from your midst in late summer, 1964. My family moved to NJ where my father returned to school in NY, and upon graduation, began a new career as a psychotherapist.

I believe it is true that in the early 60's, the importance of good-bye's wasn't understood. The importance of closure, the opportunity to celebrate the love and friendship, and the encouragement to stay in touch. These were things that weren't recognized as important for little children, however they are something I know to be very important. I hope that each of the living descendants of the Gibson family will take the time, and if necessary, be helped to return, to make their goodbye's ere the sale occurs.

I am grateful that my love of Genealogy led me to you. It was while researching an 1823 apprenticeship of my 4th great-grandfather to Henry Washam, a tailor of Lawrence Co. Alabama that I realized the similarity of sound to that of Worsham from my childhood. Futher reading uncovered that sure enough, there were apparently (at least) three spellings: Worsham, Washam and Wissham.

My very best to you all,
Mary G. G. Conyers Sullivan
