    Don Carroll Sylvester was my grandfather. My mother has passed away and would like to get some information on my grandfather if there is any. I know he was a potato farmer in Westfield. I have been to Westfield and saw the lot where my mother, (Edna Pearl Sylvester Leach) grew up and the church. Is there any place I could get some information on my grandfather.

    My name is Mary Sylvester and I, too, am a granddaughter of Don Carroll Sylvester. My father was Kenneth Don Sylvester (deceased), the eldest child of Dona and Hazel Sylvester, and brother to your mother, Edna. I have very little information on the family, but I would be happy to speak with you and/or communicate via email.
