    I was looking on the web for information about my Dad, William Bressler who was originally from the Mahantongo Valley. Imagine my surprise when I seem him in the Steins school picture of 1924! I have very limited information about his family- I know his mothers name was originally Sarah Oswald, then she married a Sherry with which she had several children- the one I know of was John and his wife Ruby. I know nothing of my grandfather Bressler. If someone could please email me with more information I will be eternally grateful!
