Very interesting story! Although, I don't think it was my grandfather, as he had already relocated to Syracuse by 1966. However, it most definitely could have been grandfather's uncle - also a Sam. I should be talking to my grandfather today, and will certainly ask him. If I recall, I actually think Sam's oldest son's name was Frank. However, they may have all relocated to Massapequa by '66. I'll check on it. Small world it is!
