Thanks for taking the time to visit my website.  Hopefully you will like what you see and consider following my blog “The Gang from West End,” check out my Clips and ultimately contact me.  I’d love to hear from you!

photo, the gang from west end re-scannedThis photo is of the real Gang from West End.  They are my muses as well as my ancestors posing in 1913 in front of a small house in West End, New Jersey.  The home was owned by Annie Lanahan, my great-grandmother, an Irish immigrant who worked as a domestic in President Ulysses S. Grant’s summer home just down the street.  I suppose you could say that it is where my love of history was born.
