Jared, I am sure you know the Lighthouse Service was assimilated in to the Coast Guard in 1939, so this person would have been a Coast Guardsman in the 40's.

My older siblings, Nancy Ryder Petrus and John Ryder might have heard of him. I have nothing to add about him. Coast Guard men came and went back then, until Bernie Webber became so well known.

Does anyone remember a Tom Crook or John Crook? Their father took over command of Chatham Light in 1946, having been transferred from lighthouse service at West Chop on the Vineyard. The daughter of Mr. Crook's successor at West Chop was asking if I might know what ever happened to them. Sound familiar?

I have noticed that every once in a while the Chat-M-Room stalls. Off subject, or a repeat of past entries or something not really current or pertinent to the thread.. We are all guilty and to prove it, I went back and clicked on the very earliest archives. WOW! 2001, 2002 I could hear voices of old timers and enjoy all their comments. Jane H Patterson, Hilda Trainor, Tim Pennypacker and many others. Let's remember what they were telling us.....don't let Chatham change any more!

SO interesting to note that there are only 21 kids in the Kindergarten class now. Guess what: First of all, when I was kid in Chatham there was no Kindergarten available.. Secondly, the Graduating Class of 1957 had 22 kids. We somehow made it through our 12 years in one building. Now the Community Center, or whatever it is called.
