Record of George Zentmyer's employment prior to 1937
Record of George Zentmyer's employment prior to 1937
The Railroad Retirement Act of 1937 established pension payments for retired railroad employees. Benefits were calculated on total years of service, so employees were required to document railroad employment prior to 1937.

George was a Train Dispatcher In Las Vegas for the L.A. & S.L. for about two and one-half years. That was an abbreviation for Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad, nicknamed the Salt Lake Route. This line was 50% owned by the Union Pacific until April of 1921, when the UPRR acquired the remaining 50%.

Revolutionary War Military Abstract Card for Bernhard
Revolutionary War Military Abstract Card for Bernhard
These 3" x 5" cards were initially prepared to serve as an index to Samuel Penniman Bates' "History of Pennsylvania Volunteers, 1861-1865," (Harrisburg, 1869-1871). The Office of the Adjutant General later expanded the scope of the cards by transcribing onto them data found on the original Civil War Muster Rolls and Related Records, 1861-1866 {series #19.11}.

Robert Strahorn - The Sphinx
Robert Strahorn - The Sphinx
From the Zentmyer Collection. This cartoon depicts Robert as "The Sphinx," as he was known in the early 1900s. In his own hand, Robert (RES) describes, in the third person, how he got the moniker. The Harriman - Jim Hill fight refers to the struggle for control of the railroad business in the Pacific Northwest. $30mm in 1900 would be over $800mm today.

Robert Strahorn and North Coast Railroad's McKeen Car
Robert Strahorn and North Coast Railroad's McKeen Car
From the Zentmyer Collection. This self-propelled McKeen car was one of two purchased by the North Coast Railroad in 1910. Robert is circled in yellow. McKeen cars had the distinctive "wind-splitter" pointed aerodynamic front end and rounded tail. The porthole windows were also a McKeen trademark. But the McKeen car had no reverse gear, so backing up required the operator to reconfigure the camshaft to a set of reverse cams, then re-start the motor in the opposite direction.

And this, from John W. Lundin: "When Harriman toured France by automobile in 1903, he wondered why a version could not be adapted to run on rails as a commuter car on lines lacking enough business to warrant full train service. Harriman asked William R. McKeen Jr., UP's chief mechanical officer, to work on the project. McKeen came up with the idea of a self-propelled vehicle powered by a gasoline engine that could do forty to sixty miles an hour on sustained runs at a lower cost than steam or electric-powered vehicles. It was tested in March 1905, and evolved over the next year into a model twice as long with sealed porthole windows that kept weather out and allowed stronger body construction. It was called a "submarine on wheels" and UP put them into use on regular routes throughout its system. They were used for over a decade but fell into disuse after WW II. They left a legacy, however. The McKeen car was an inspiration for the streamliners that Averell Harriman developed for UP during the 1930s."

Samuel Dale House
Samuel Dale House
Samuel Dale, (1741-1804) a prominent early politician in the area, lived on an estate about four miles from the Buffalo Presbyterian Church. His house is currently a museum operated by the Union County Historical Society. Dale was a Scots-Irish immigrant, and also an Elder at the Buffalo Church, and was undoubtedly an acquaintance of Nathaniel Strayhorn. The docents at the Dale house told me that the Presbyterians valued education very highly, and were thus not adverse to slave labor so as to afford time to read and study, as opposed to the Germans, who generally worked the land personally. And while Dale was indeed a slave owner, there is no evidence that any Strayhorns owned slaves in Union County or anywhere else. The docents claim that the Buffalo Church congregation were referred to as the "Silk Church People" by non-Presbyterians.

Scissors and Sieve
Scissors and Sieve
Scissors and Sieve, or Coscinomancy as it was also known, is divination performed by suspending a grain sieve from a pair of shears. After an invocation, the names of potential thieves are read aloud, and if the sieve turns, the person is guilty. This practice was also seen in 17th century New England.

Ship's Manifest in Port of New York - 1827
Ship's Manifest in Port of New York - 1827
This is the Ship’s Manifest for the French Brig Deux Ernst, arriving at the Port of New York from Le Havre, France on 29 December 1827. Captain A. Lebeun. Joseph's name appears to us to be recorded as 'Brutschi.' Joseph’s nationality is listed as 'Suisse' (Swiss) but according to L'émigration des Lorrains en Amérique 1815-1870, Metz 1980, "Here in Le Havre, no distinction is made between Swiss, German and Alsatian emigrants, they are all just called Swiss.” Joseph actually first landed in Lewes, Delaware because of problems with the ship before proceeding to New York.
