Well, looks like I came to the dance too late. I just found out about this blog but looks like you and I are the only ones left. We lived in the manor from 55 till 60 or 61. Lots of memories. I started reading from the beginning and am still having fun. I am on page 50 and will read the rest. Sure would have enjoyed being in on the big conversation. Lots of people I knew were mentioned. Our mother passed away in 201, she would have loved this blog. I'll check back here at the end to see if anyone else shows up. You take care, good reminiscing with you.

Yeah, some of the posters have moved to continue on Facebook. I'm still in touch with some of them. I mentioned your photos to one former poster, who has still posted here on occasion. That person and I live in the Manor at the same time. I don't know that we ever met in the Manor, although it's quite possible we may have crossed paths. Interestingly, we both knew some of the same people. Between that poster and you, that's the closest I've come to finding anything about some of the people I knew way back then. It's possible some of the posters may jump in on this thread. I opted to subscribe to this thread, so when someone posts here, I get an email to notify me about it. You can opt select to subscribe just below the reply box. I'll send you a Direct Message. You should see that at the top of the page in the box on the right that says "Welcome (your username)".

So you're on page 50 or so? There's a lot of amazing pages here. I first came to this thread after doing a web search for Stratford Manor. My search was originally to see what the old place looks like on Google Maps. To my shock and surprise, there was nothing left, except Kingsley Drive. But all the Manor apartments were completely gone. I wondered whatever happened to the people I knew so long ago?

Both of my parents have passed away, as has my older brother. My younger brother is living in the state of Washington. When we left the Manor, we moved to Oregon. We had a house in Springfield Oregon before we moved to Cincinnati, so that's the house we returned to. My dad made a career of the Navy, so I spent a good portion of my growing up years moving to different places. It's hard to point to any single reason, but the years I spent in Stratford Manor had a huge impact on my life, enough that I've never forgotten that experience.

I want to once again say how much I appreciate seeing your photos and reading your posts. And I'm really glad to know that your brother is doing well in Tennessee, as well as the pleasure of talking with you. That's meant a lot more to me than I can adequately say. I wouldn't be surprised that I may have seen you in the Manor way back when. Enjoy the rest of the thread.

It's a small world, isn't it?

Just thought of another family you might know. At Shellborne and Kingsley, on Shellborne southwest corner, lived a family called Lusk. Bill would be your age, he had a sister 2 years older named Linda ( or maybe Kathy, little fizzy ). Maybe you knew them ??

In the page where you write your post, just below the text box, you should see "Additional Options". DON'T hit the "Submit Reply" button yet. The last option says "Thread Subscription". You can select from a variety of notifications. I've chosen "Instant email notification". You can make your selection, then below that is another "Submit Reply" button. You can hit that one, or the one above, to Submit your reply post. Your notification selection will be activated and when someone posts to this thread, you'll receive an email to let you know. That's it.

No, the names don't ring any bells. Let me try a couple for you. They were all really nice kids.

Brenda and Teddy Preece
Lived on Shelborne, 1st building just SE of Kingsley. They had an older sister named Connie but I'm not sure her last name was Preece. Brenda was 2 or 3 years younger than me, and Teddy was about a year or 2 younger than Brenda. Connie was about a year or 2 older than I was.

Karen Karish
Lived on the NE corner of Kingsley (next to the building you lived in) by Shelborne. I think Karen was about my age, but maybe a year younger.

Just curious, but are you still living in Ohio?

Just checked with Gary, he didn't recognize those names. He did mention Faye Kesterson. She lived across the street from us on Kingsley.
