Ted Dyskow, who has been sporting a heavy growth of auburn colored mutton chops all winter, shed them yesterday, and in appearance he now reminds one of County Castellane who very recently amassed such a large fortune by coming to the United States and marrying simple-minded Anna Gould or her money, yet Ted hasn’t the rocks to back him.

Do you think this article is speaking of Leslie Mack? I'm wondering if my ggg-uncle was a blacksmith.

Tom -


Sorry but the article didn't list Mr. Mack's first name. I am very careful to type the articles exactly as they were printed, as I'm of the belief that history shouldn't be altered, for better or worse. This has caused a fair amount of frustration to many modern readers! Sorry I couldn't help. Good luck.
