      Reply from a letter I sent to Joseph T. Maskew, December, 1998.

      John,

      Nice to hear from you.

      Dad(Joseph Maskew) died Sept. 1934 right before my High School graduation. Grandma(Ellen Hughes) died, to the best of my knowledge, very shortly thereafter, before the end of the year. No divorce, Catholics didn't divorce back then, remember. Grandpa Weppler didn't last long after Grandma's death but we had no connections with him. He was a boastful man, strongly built who handled would be muggers of his Hill district. To hear him tell it, he was "respected".

      Unfortunately Jake(his brother Jacob Maskew) had problems - women & booze. Mildred died young probably in her early 40's. I really didn't know. As I implied the divorce was Jakes's behavior.

      When your in town a telephone call may clear up some questions. Ellen was born in Ireland & worked in England. Sorry for the hard writing.
