Cherrie descendant sends thanks
To the editor:
I greatly enjoyed Gene Young's story about Charles Cherrie on Nov 3.
Charles Cherrie was my father's mother's father. (My father's mother was mentioned (Estella)). The only four-generation photo we have of our family is my older brother, my father, his mother and her father, Charles Cherrie. My sister's first name is Cherrie (after him) and she has his railroad watch given him at his retirement and has promised to give this to my 14-year-old who is a train fanatic.
My younger brother sent me the article and I have no idea how he came by it (but will ask soon).
Anyway, it was a real treat!
