I’ve just looked at the Habershons.com message book for the first time in many months. There are a few new posts there (one from one of your ex-students, Helen) and there’s also one from a Frank Jones, who was born at Coleford House:
My brother Philip sold Coleford House to your family. Paul came to see us in Louisville about 1961. Brought a very nice cheese dish as a gift from Margaret. Paul stayed with us that week-end.
It is nice to see Coleford House again. I have a copy of the original layout of the grounds. The house was for sale, my father Dr. Philip Jones was at that time the tenant. he bought the house in 1899. Would be glad to hear from any of you. I have just completed my Memoirs and they are on the market at Amazon.com. Coleford House of course is well represented.
He says he was born in “the cold room”. That had to be mine on the east side of the house! I could see my breath every morning when I woke up.
It would be cool if the current owners stumbled on Habershons.com.
