So, Rick, Wilkes Barre eh? Do remember Percy Browns?
My Dad's family is from Plymouth. Pop Jones (my grandfather) was a
blower operator on one of the mines. There are Jones's all over the
place up there. My Aunt was an accountant at PBs. I remember (vaguely)
that at Christmas time there was a Santa train of some sort in the
park(?) across the street for PBs.
I never made it west of Carlisle (where my mom's family lived)
