  • Notes 
    • My mother told us that her name, Lydi Ann was originally all one name, (Lydiann), and that when she started school, she could only speak German, (Pennsylvania Deutsch), son her brother, Irvin, told the teacher her name. The teacher insisted that it was two names, and from then on, she was known as Lydia Ann.
