Morrison, Punxsy, Pa.According to Vivian Doney Reid, Nick Anthony was a relative (acousin) of the Anthonys and lived in Connellsville. Pa. These Anthonyswere here before the Frantzs came to this country. The Frantzs mayhave stayed a while in Connellsville when they arrived in thiscountry. They may have lived in Adrian, PA. 'Uncle Harry Frantz' (hewas superintendent of the mines) had them come to Rossiter. It was anew town -the mine was just opening up. In 1901 J.C. and Carolinemoved to Rossiter (maybe with the Frantzs). They lived in a duplex-Grandma and Grandpa Frantz on one side and Caroline and J. C. on theother. Caroline Anthony was fat. She weighed about 200- 250 pounds.She always wore long (to the floor) gray or black dresses. She hadvery long hair. One time when Viv was at home alone with her, Viv wasin the bathtub getting ready to go somewhere. Grandma Frantz chose thewrong door in the dark and instead of going into the dining room shefell down the cellar steps. Viv heard a loud crack and then her GermanShepherd, King, started barking like crazy. When she went toinvestigate she found Grandma had fallen down the cellar steps and hadbroken her collar bone. She had also pulled a big hunk of hair out ofher head that had caught on something on the way down. Viv got her upand up the cellar steps and into bed. Then she went for the Doctor. Noone could believe she had gotten Grandma up the stairs by herselfbecause Grandma was so big. This incident occurred when Viv was about12 years old. Grandma Frantz said she was related to AlbertSchweitzer. Her cousin, Adam Schweitzer, went blind. He hadoperations in this country in Philadelphia and maybe someplace else,to try to correct the condition but they were unsuccessful. He and hisdaughter, Caroline Schweitzer, traveled to Paris to see if specialiststhere could help. The story goes that the Doctors in Paris told himthat there was nothing they could do because his eye muscles had beenstretched in the USA during the previous attempts to correct hisvision. After Adam died, Carolyn Schweitzer lived with CarolineAnthony Frantz. Caroline's aunt, Louise Fenstermaker, lived on PineStreet in Punxsy. Caroline married Fred Chambers, who had a hardwarestore in Punxsutawney. Who is Rose Barron? Vivian Doney Reid believedthat this was her great grandmother's name, not Magdaline Hartman.
