       Here's a little bit about Donald and Mary Jean Pelham.  Donald was born in New York City in 1927.  He grew up on Long Island, fought in WWII and then attended Princeton University (class of 1949).  He lived a few more years on Long Island or New Jersey and then he moved to Avon, CT, where he started Acromold Products Corp.  He met Mary Jean around 1961.
       Mary Jean was born in Rye, NY in 1933, but soon after she was born, her family moved to Fishers Island, a small island off the East tip of Long Island.  She grew up there and left for the first time to attend Keuka College, where she studied Nursing.  After she graduated, she moved to Hartford Connecticut, where she worked her way up to the head of the Nursing School at the University of Connecticut's School of Nursing. 
       They married in 1963 and quickly had 3 children.  After the birth of the third, they moved to Vernon, CT, where they lived for the next 32 years.  (It was a good place to raise a family.) In 1999, they moved into an apartment.  Donald died from injuries related to a fall on September 27, 2005.
