Turbotville has, within its limits, quite a number of old people.  A count made the other day found thirteen who were eighty or more years old.  This is not a bad showing for a town that numbers about five hundred inhabitants"

  1. I have lived in the Turbotville area for 40 some years, always enjoyed your posts. I was very surprised to see a article about my great grandfather Frank Groner. My Mother said she had heard the story but did not ever hear that it was that serious.


I'll read the comments and approve them to post as soon as I can! Thanks for stopping by!
