HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Charles Cary Rumsey!!!
It was on this date in 1879 a boy was born to Jennie Cary and Laurence Dana Rumsey. He was born a 1 Johnson Park in Buffalo, New York.
The location today is 330 Delaware Avenue, and is the home of Child and Family Services.
If I could ask him a question today, it would be "what was your favorite flavor of cake", and then have it! I will just have to pick whatever is at the bakery and celebrate!
