    Hello. I have preordered a copy of the book. My great-great grandparents, Patrick and Catherine Hayes O’Brien came to Milton/Marlborough/Lattingtown in the mid 1800s. Their daughter Mary, my great grandmother, and her husband James Collins, bought a fruit farm on Ridge Road in the 1870s and raised my grandfather John and his 4 sisters there. All are buried in St. Mary’s Cemetery. Other family names are McGowan, VanDeLeur, Miller, Collins. Can you tell me if any of these are mentioned in the book? The family farm is still standing and is basically across the street from the cemetery. Is there anyone you could recommend that might be able to help me track down burial plots, death notices, obits, etc? I do have obits for Patrick O’Brien (died in 1905), death certificates for Catherine Hayes (died 1916) and death certificates for Mary and James and their death notices. Thank you in advance for your help, and look forward to getting the book.

    Sincerely,

    Matt Peck

    Hello Matt Peck,

    Thanks for your interest in the book. We’re pouring over an advance copy and anxiously awaiting final publication in a few weeks. I’d invite you to our book signing/holiday open house for the public on Friday, December 14 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Library but I’m assuming you live out of the area. I’m going to pass your inquiry on to Emily Amodeo and Joanne Pagnotta who did much of the family research. You can reach Emily at eamodeo@marlborolibrary.org and then she will have your email so she can respond to you directly.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    James Cosgrove, Director
    Marlboro Free Library
