Subject: Re: [PaCambri] Some Glasser notes: the family of George "the Tailor" Glasser
Date: Wed, 23 Nov 2005 15:11:08 EST


I am a direct descendant of George the Tailor (follow italics) and his third
wife. Most of this information came from the actual family members, family
bibles and wills, photographs etc. These items are held by myself and 2 of my
cousins.

There is a family story as to why the spelling of Glaser changed. It is said
that when George opened up his tailor shop in the WB public square, the sign
maker made the mistake of adding an extra "S". The cost of such a large sign
being what it was, George kept it rather than pay for a new one. I don't know
how accurate it is but it makes for a good story!

George John, Jr. and his sister Mary married a brother and sister, Dr. John
Storz and Catherine Storz. For wedding presents, the Storz's father built
identical houses for both couples. Catherine and George's was at 35 Wyoming St.,
WB. Dr. John and Mary occupied theirs at 551 Charles St., Luzerne where he
also had his medical office. He delivered most all the babies in the family
including my mother. Many of his medical records and his "black bag" are in the
possession of his great-grandson. Over the years, various family members have
occupied both houses and still do in the Luzerne house today. The WB house
was sold in 1998.
