A person who read one of my articles and signed up on HP to ask me a question-- it is not a comment on the article page. I approved the fan mail thinking I could answer somehow. I do not want to give out personal email, if at all possible, nor would I even know how to do that here. How do we answer fan mail ... or do we? Thank you.
You can go follow that person and answer in their comment box. You can always unfollow them later.
I hope that you don't think that I am interrupting, but
this has happened to me and like you, I go to
the person's profile page, then go in the Fan Mail
and send them my response.
hi thank you - I followed this person but do not see a comment box - where is this box from the page that comes up with their profile? thank you
Fan mail is intended to be a way to praise an author and his/her work, so there's not an easy way to reply to one that contains a question. You can either respond by visiting that person's profile and emailing them directly if they have that feature enabled, or by leaving a fan mail comment in return that contains your answer.
Well, ha ha, hi Fred, because you're here .... I wanted to suggest contacting the Ohio Historical Society and/or the chamber of Commerce in Waverly. They may also have historical records or an historical society. Reference librarians at your local library have research tools that go beyond Wiki; they may be able to help or put you on the right path. Many small breweries were gobbled up by the brand names, I think, but if so, these companies may have records, too. Check old newspaper microfiche (ask the librarian) ... with 25 years in business, records and news articles may still be around (I wouldn't be so optimistic if it were just a couple of years). Sorry I cannot be of more help. Good luck!
Ha Nancy you found me! thanks for responding. I will definitely try those places and the Waverly library because the Portsmouth librarian has been incredible at finding me things, often obscure.
However since I wrote you, I actually found something searching the Waverly newspaper! It is Wilhelm (Williams) brewery ad which he seems to have placed in every edition. It was called the Waverly brewery. I've attached it here. So now I'll write these places you suggest hoping for a photo though I'm guessing that is not likely. But also in the process I found an additional child for my gg gp who was born in 1868 and must have died prior to 1870 because she is not listed with them in the 1870 census. I think the Waverly brewery operated roughly between 1860 and 1870 (paper ad is 1868) but according to our family records, they had some big financial disaster due to the inability to obtain the hops and grains or some other problem with the supplier which apparently led to its failure. They moved to Portsmouth after that, not sure when but his wife died in Portsmouth in 1877. Wm lived till 1896 but don't see that he ever opened another brewery there. thanks again! Love that he advertises the "cheapest prices anywhere" for his beer. Fred Lorey
