The Best Beef Stroganoff?

I had not made beef stroganoff in many years; tried it with my own subtle additions about a month ago and the family are now clamoring for more!

Boston Cream Pie

My mother made Boston Cream Pie when I was a child.  It was one of the cake recipes in the cookbook she used for making cakes and pies.  I think she bought it in the 30’s after she was married, and it’s now in pieces in a plastic bag, but I treasure it because of all the recipes she wrote on the blank pages and in the margins!  Although referred to as a pie, this is actually a cake with cream filling with chocolate on top.

History of the Marlins in the U.S.

After years of research and compilations, two histories of the Marlin family have been published recently.  One is by Natalie J. McNabb Hill, whose grandmother was Edna Marlin McNabb, the sister of my grandfather, Walter Elbert Marlin.  It is spiral bound and is described as follows:  “The record contained here is a list of descendants of Archibald Martin Marlin (1757).  It is a compilation for information about a pioneer family from Missouri and Tennessee.”  There is a brief history at the beginning of the book and photographs scattered throughout.  Natalie and I are second cousins.

A second hardcover book now available is by Lynette Marlin Shockley and is titled, “Marlin Family History, Webster County, Missouri.”  It also contains histories of the Marlins in Tennessee (Archibald Marlin and Martha Ferrier) and as they settled the Marlin Prairie in what became Webster County, Missouri; also articles about early days in the county.   Many photographs are contained in the book.   My relationship to Lynette is a little more distant:  my third great grandfather, Thomas Marlin, was the brother of William Marlin, both sons of Archibald Marlin, and Lynette’s line runs from William.  I think we are fifth cousins or fifth cousins once removed.

If you are interested in either book, please send me a note and I will forward contact information.  More information about the Marlins and photographs are on this cite.  Just go to posts and search on MARLIN.

#OTD in Irish History – 10 October:

Another great photo taken in Ireland.  Devenish Island near Eniskillen, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, had a small group of Protestant people living there.  This was centuries ago, but it may be where my Protestant McManus ancestors came from.
