Looking For Former Worcester Residents / Looking for Carol (blackmer) creed
« Last post by Whattever4 on February 26, 2016, 07:15:26 PM »
Looking for Carol Blackmer , went to BHS, graduated 1970. She formerly lived on Barnard Rd and dated Gary McNulty till his death in 1974. Would like to know how she is
In St. John's Cemetery right in front of James McAvoy's Family tombstone (my great grandfather), there is the tombstone of Hugh Rice, Alice Trainor Rice, his wife, and Owen Rice, their son ( I have a photograph of my mother standing next to this Rice tombstone).  My great great grandmother was Anne Rice McEvoy, mother of James, who came over in 1853.
My priority is to prove Hugh and Anne were siblings; to discover Alice Trainor's parents names and location; and, perhaps linking--as siblings-- Anne, Hugh and a Mary Rice 1821-1863 married to a John Trainor 1816-1884??? 
With Griffiths Valuation I show Anne McEvoy, Matthew Rice, John, Owen and Thomas Traynor as renters under Lord Clermont, and, I also have Anne Rice McEvoy's brother-in-law's two sons baptized in Lordship Church and information which puts them near Jenkinstown Cross, county Louth.  (By-the-way, Anne Rice McEvoy's parents were Matthew and Mary Rice for which I have proof).
As a side note, my ancestors came over to Hopkinton, Leicester and Worcester and clustered with neighbors from Ireland such as: Daws, Traynors, McArdle, Finnegan, Doherty, McDermonts.
Lastly, someone--without proof--has listed Alice Trainor's parents as being Partick Trainor and Ann White, but I can't enter this without primary source proof.
***Please contact me (born in Worcester but now in Florida)     THANK YOU

No info on your question, but you might be interested in the story of how a dam breech caused a rush/flood through that area. Search a bit, you will find a kinda interesting story.

Worcester Chit Chat / Re: Holland Rink?

I remember Holland Rink!  I grew up off Lincoln Street and my brothers and sisters and I would walk to Holland Rink to go swimming.  One time my older sister cut her foot on a piece of glass and started bleeding.  That was the end of swimming there.   I remember they had fireworks on the fourth of July.  Route 290 was not there yet.  Green Hill Park used to extend all the way to Holland Rink but it was bulldozed in the late 60's to make way for 290.  People would sit all over the hill and watch the fireworks at Holland Rink.  Great memories!

My father used to take my brothers and sisters and I to Healds beach in the 60's.  We loved it!  I remember the white fence in the water that we were not to swim past because we were too short.  There was one of those floating white square docks further out that my brothers would swim to.  I remember the bath house had a popsicle machine that sold those orange creamsicles.  We would always get a creamsicle before we left the beach.  Great memories of Healds beach  :)
