This is a starting place - I'm looking for anyone who might have known my grandmother in the community. Her name was "Barbara (?) ("Bobs") Essex, formerly married to Norman Essex. I believe she moved to Elmira from Buffalo. Sons were "Trevor Emerson (later changed to Don David) Essex" and "Clive Essex".

Hi! John Dunne, originally from the Southside. My life's journey has taken me progressively to the south and west. After HS I moved to Arizona for 20 years; six years ago, I moved to Asia where I lived in Korea for one year and now Singapore, where I've lived for almost five years. I'm married without children (at the moment; we hope to have some soon). I try to keep up with what's happening in the States and Elmira, and I maintain a small website for the SHS Class of 1979 (http://www.geocities.com/du nner99rok/SHS79/shs79index.h tml). Stop by if you have a chance.

I left Elmira in 1968 to serve in the US Air Force, (22 Years). Ended in Nellis AFB, NV in 1980, loved it so much that I never left. Now work for the State of Nevada. I am looking forward to the upcoming 40 year reunion. I am getting prepared to the visit Elmira by observing the web site --- sure looks cold and damp.

This message is in response to entry # 168. The students at Harry N. Hoffman school also had a Mr.G. Bates as their principal for a designated period of time as well as a six grade teacher by the name of Mrs. McMormick. I wonder if they were the same people you mentioned, and if they were transfered later on to Hoffman School. (I graduated from Hoffman School in 1965. )
Anyway, congratulations to you and your classmates on the event of your 5oth reunion. Best wishes.

PS The predictions were interesting.

I happened to find this site after looking at the Eldridge Park & Remembering Elmira pages. All the memories of places and people came flooding back. I justfound out that Brad Sanford died in 2003 at age 58...WOW!! He was my Social Studies teacher in my Senior year. I was wondering if anyone remembers "Trifoso's"bar/nightclub on Grand Central Ave. I spent ALOT of nights there. Also, how about "Curleys Chicken House"...are they still open? I loved their coleslaw! I'd love hearing from some of the people from my class, school, etc. I'm in a nostalgic mood, I guess. Hi to everyone that remembers me & to those who don't. Elmira will always be "home".

Hello all. I am still trying to find any MacMillan relatives who lived in Elmira during World War 2. Most notably, we are looking for the former Mary Henrietta MacMillan who was married to Silas MacMillan from 1936 - 1950. Silas also had 6 sisters but we don't know if they married so we don't know where to look for them. We are very interested in mending broken fences with the family after all this time. Please email me if you can think of anything that will help us. Thanks!

Thanks for putting this together. The Cosy Corner photo is quite nostalgic for me.

My brother Ed and I went to Hoffman, Booth and EFA schools.

I moved my mother, Marge Park with Alzheimer's disease, from Elmira to St Joseph's Assisted Living Center here in SLC last year. She keeps trying to take a taxi back to Elmira- thankfully no taxi driver has been willing to make the trip!! At least I understand her love for Elmira.

My brother Ed lives in Elmira Heights.
