7 "He was not only not a scholar, but he was a very average man," according to his half great-nephew, Judah Asimov (1896 - 1969), quoted in "In Memory Yet Green," the first autobiography of Isaac Asimov.
Isaac explains: "This one, you see, my father saw with his own eyes. It is easier to be a scholar if there is an insulating period of decades between the man who is the subject of the description and the man who is doing the describing."
Judah Asimov (1896 - 1969) goes on to say of his half great-uncle: "In my time, he married and had a daughter. While I was in the United States I heard that she became a physician, but I do not know anything more."

When my daughter, Zoe, was born in 1988, my grandparents offered me a crib that had been made by George G Byrne. It was lovely, but looked terrible by comparison with modern cribs (e.g. slats that were a perfect fit for catching a baby’s head), so I declined.

And [his uncle] Samuel has persuaded all of them to arrive to Leningrad, and all of them together began to live in room Samuel. Then David married Victoria Aaron. At them son Konstantin was born.

KATZ, David (I377)
 
66 According to Judah's great-great grandson, Judah (Jack) Asimov (1896-1969):

Judah was a great scholar. The name Asimov came to his predecessors whenever last names were given to the Jewish people because he, like everyone in the family, were dealers in rye planted in the fall and kept warm under the snow all winter. The rye is known as "asimy chleb." So the the first dealer was given the name Asimy, and his sons, Asimov.

Judah lived in Petrovichi and, like all the town's people, paid taxes to the land owner. Each person had the right to sell it or transfer it, subject to a tax by the land owner.

Judah exchanged his great piece of land in the middle of town for a "third of land" at the west end of town.

With the money he received, he became a traveling Jewish preacher, walking everywhere. He had written a book advising piety and moral behavior. He gave out this book wherever he went.

81 After 42 years, couple's remains are reunited
By PETE HOLLEY, Staff Writer

Standing over the freshly turned soil of a new grave at St. James' Episcopal Church, Scott Trapnell Hilleary couldn't help but feel an overwhelming sense of relief.

Forty-two years after his stepfather, Hammond P. Dorsey, died suddenly of a heart attack, he reached his final resting place on Friday beside his late wife, Eleanor "Polly" Trapnell Hilleary Dorsey Dosh.

After years of legal struggle, Mr. Hilleary and his brother John Thornton Hilleary, both of Baltimore, successfully petitioned the Circuit Court of Jacksonville, Fla., where Mr. Dorsey was a legal resident, to authorize the removal of his remains from Baltimore National Cemetery and their re-interment in St. James' cemetery in Lothian.

"I feel peace," Mr. Hilleary said. "It's something that's been hanging for 42 years."

Mr. Dorsey was born in 1898 in Howard County, but moved to Annapolis in 1918 to attend St. John's College.

After becoming a lawyer, he operated the former Pine Crest Sanitarium in East Catonsville, but kept a home near Annapolis.

"He was a wonderful person," said Mr. Hilleary. "He could hardly walk around downtown Annapolis without people approaching him and calling his name."

Mr. Dorsey and Mrs. Dosh, a New Jersey native who divided her time between Catonsville, Epping Forest and West Virginia, met several times throughout the 1930s, but it wasn't until 1949, when they were both separated from their spouses, that their relationship blossomed.

In part because of their mutual passion for the outdoors and other common interests, Mr. Hilleary is convinced that his parents' relationship was an ideal match.

"They respected an admired each other, but I think it was mostly just chemistry," said Mr. Hilleary. "My mother used to say it was the stuff the poets wrote about."

Mr. Dorsey was fond of expressing his affection by repeating the same phrases, such as "Honey, I never knew there could be a woman in the world like you."

Mrs. Dosh's two sons looked forward to summer weekends away at their historic cottage in Epping Forest. It was here, hidden within the wooded, 2-acre property overlooking the Severn River, that the boys gained a lifelong appreciation for nature and their parents' love.

"They were very interested in conservation and planting trees on their property," remembered Orlando Ridout IV, Mrs. Dosh's long-time friend. "They loved to bring in specimen trees from their various adventures together."

In 1961 Mr. Dorsey moved to Florida so that he could establish residency and finalize his divorce, which had been repeatedly denied in Maryland the decade before. The shocking move was one of desperation, a final effort to circumvent his contested divorce and free himself from his first wife.

It was one of the first times Mr. Dorsey had ever crossed the Maryland state line.

When the couple finally married in a civil ceremony in 1963, it felt like decades of struggle and separation had ended.

"He helped raise my brother and me," said Mr. Hilleary. "We thought of him as our father. Everything would have been different if he had lived."

But on June 24, 1963, barely two months into his new marriage, Mr. Dorsey died while driving a tractor to cut wheat on his uncle's 1,000-acre cattle farm in Howard County. He was 65.

To his new wife's surprise, Mr. Dorsey's family had him buried in Baltimore National Cemetery. Mrs. Dosh went on to marry again, but she always considered her second husband the true love of her life.

"I've been married three times," she used to say recalled Mr. Hilleary. "I've had the worst of marriages, the best of marriages and the mediocrity."

So when Mrs. Dosh died in March 2004 at the age of 91, the Hilleary brothers decided to intensify their efforts to reunite their parents. By the end of their year and a half odyssey Friday, the legal and re-internment fees had reached about $12,000.

"The bottom line is clearly that they did love each other and clearly Polly wanted her late husband to be beside her," said the Rev. William H.C. Ticknor, a close friend of Mrs. Dosh who led the re-interment ceremony. Standing over both their parents' graves for the first time, Mr. Hilleary only needed one word to describe how the situation: "closure."

86 Albert “Al” Dani was born on April 7, 1905, on the Cooper Ranch on the Little Sur River. He attended eight years of school at the Cooper School on the Hunt Ranch.

Al was a cowboy first and foremost. He enjoyed ranching, cowboying and working with horses. He was good at “gentling” and “rough breaking” horses. They were also good at “breaking” him. He had two broken ankles among other injuries to prove it.

On February 4, 1935, Al married Neva V. King. After working at the Hunt Ranch, the McQuerry Ranch, farming with Vernon Holmes, and numerous other jobs, Al and Neva moved to King City where Al went to work fo the Heirs Estate of Thomas Doud Ranches. Al and Neva had moved so many times in the first five years of their marriage that Neva told Al, “If you move again, Margaret (10 mos.) and I are staying here!” Al must have believed her as he “stayed on” and acted foreman and superintendent for the “Douds” for thirty-five years. Albert Ivon “Butch” Dani was born to the couple on November 10, 1945.

Al loved to tease, tell stories and outright lies. One of the stories he told children who sucked their thumbs was sucking his thumb was the reason the end “rotted off”. (Actually, his rope “popped” over his thumb and neatly removed the end of it)! He also ”doused” Uncle tony Brazil’s nose with Ben-Gay assuring poor Uncle Tony that it would cure his stuffy nose. Al loved hot peppers. When asked if they were really hot, he usually replied, “Just a little warm.” Numerous individuals can attest that his straight face was not quite the complete truth.

Al loved “kids” and was a big tease, but he was also a giving man. A young woman with children ran into his pickup. Because she was upset, Al told her to forget it. His pickup had so many dents that it’s not clear how many times this happened. It is known that sometimes he gave to strangers and neglected “his own”.

He died on the Ides of March in 1975. Al’s children and grandchildren hope he’s not into too much mischief in heaven. God Bless.

KILLED IN AN ORIENT WRECK

Rue and Fieland Yield Up Their Lives at the Post of Duty

One of the worst wrecks in the history of the Orient railroad occurred near Braithwaite a few miles south of Clinton, Saturday afternoon at 5 o'clock, when a south bound freight train turned turtle and went into the ditch, killing two members of the train crew, and dangerously injuring two more.

The wrecked train was a freight, made up of engine, tender and six coal cars Saturday morning a crew was ordered out to take an engine to Clinton to have the flues of the boiler washed out, and as all the regular crews were out on their runs, a special crew Was made up of the switch gang in the yards. They made the run to Clinton, washed the boiler, and while preparing to return were ordered to take back a train instead of running light

Everything went smoothly until the village of Braithwait was al most reached, when suddenly the engine turned over and the cars left the track It is thought that either broken or spreading rails were responsible for the wreck Foreman C W Rue, of the switching crew was instantly killed, also Mr Fieland, who was acting as helper. Engineer Jack Trumbolt's knees were crushed, and he received other injuries which will render him a cripple for life Fireman Walter Barker received painful injuries, his back being scalded by escaping steam, and he was badly bruised .

Trumbolt was taken to Wichita Kas , and the body of Fieland to Kansas City. C W Rue and Freman Barker were both brought to Altus, where they reside Both are under the care of Dr Miller, the company's surgeon at this place They are getting along as well as could be expected The train crew are all well known in Altus, and the accident has cast a gloom over all their friends The injured men are receiving every attention, and it is earnestly hoped that they may recover

99 Among that striking group of men who in the latter part of the
nineteenth century bore the burden of government and contributed in a
very large measure to the material, political, civic and moral development
of Santa Barbara county, Charles Fernald was a. prominent and
influential figure. For nearly forty years he was a resident of Santa
Barbara and during practically all of that period was actively and effectively
interested in the public affairs of this locality, his alert and
vigorous mentality, his fine public spirit and his sterling integrity giving
him marked prestige throughout this section of the state.

Mr. Fernald was born at Berwick, Maine, on the 27th of May, 1830;
and his death occurred at Santa Barbara on the 7th of July, 1892, in
the sixty-third year of his age. He secured his education in the district
schools of his native state, where he remained until 1849, when, at
the age of nineteen years, he joined the stream of gold-seekers who
were in that historic year crossing the plains to California. He arrived
in San Francisco June 14, 1849, and was soon engaged in editorial
work on the San Francisco Post and Alta Californian. He studied law
and was admitted to the bar. In 1853 he came to Santa Barbara and
on March 14 of that year was appointed county judge, to which position
he was later elected, and reelected, his career on the bench being
marked by an ability and fairness that stamped him as possessing a
naturally judicial mind. In May, 1882, Judge Fernald was elected
mayor of Santa Barbara, and later was appointed United States commissioner
for the southern district of California, discharging his official
duties with distinction and ability.

Judge Fernald was the owner of extensive farm lands and was the
first to experiment on a large scale in the growing of olives, to which
he planted a large tract of land and in which he met with - eminent success. In everything relating to the progress and upbuilding of his
community he took an active interest and was a leader in the promotion
of many movements of inestimable benefit thereto. He was a life
member of the Society of California Pioneers and was affiliated with
the Sons of the American Revolution. Fraternally he was a member
of the Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, and also belonged to the
American Academy of Political and Social Science, of Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania.

On May 7, 1862, at North Berwick, Maine, Judge Fernald was united
in marriage to Miss Hannah Hobbs. Noted as a citizen whose career,
useful and honorable, conferred credit on his community, and whose
marked abilities and sterling qualities won for him much more than
local repute, Judge Fernald held distinctive precedence as one of the
most progressive and successful men of his day in this locality. He was
essentially a man of affairs, sound of judgment, keen in discernment,
quick in decision, and his success was the legitimate fruitage of consecutive
and well directed effort. He gave to the world the best of an
essentially virile, loyal and noble nature and his standard of integrity
and honor was inflexible. He was in the truest sense the architect of
his own fortunes and upon his entire career there rests no blemish, for
he was true to the highest ideals in business, professional, civic and
social life.
