    Having lived in Monongahela from 1953-1971 I enjoy all the information I receive from Lost Monongahela. I was born there, graduated from Ringgold and hope to still visit again one day. The video I just received and watched is a beautiful memory. So many familiar names and places and great memories. Thank you for your work and time to help others remember.

    Would truly love to be there for that Dan but I now live in Las Vegas Nevada. I moved here because my mother lived here. She was the sister of Mary Barkey. When I return to visit I always spend 8-10 days reliving all the memories. Thank you for all the information you send out to your followers.
