Remembrance by Julie Tapley Williams on September 22, 2009
My mother was born and raised in New London, CT. Her parents were Irish immigrants and died during one of the flu epidemics. She attended Catholic schools in New London, and was raised by an older sister after her parents deaths.
My father was born in West Brooksville, Maine and comes from a family with a very interesting history and long line of sea captains. He worked as a crane operator on the shipyard in Portsmouth, New Hampshire for over 30 years.
They moved to York just a few years after their marriage, and all of us 6 children graduated from York High School.
