    I am curious to know if you found the old Lott farmhouse as it was pictured at one time in The New York Times. I think one of the movies my first husband of my Aunt Cady Kluge Carter Lotts was “Leaves of Grass”

    Would you like a ccpy of the Lindberg Parade map and the story about Granddad’s pier,which was not burning,but there were no police lines as NY politics was mixed up with Tammy Hall. Just as Granddad was going to alert the firemen that the hose had too much pressure it broke lose and sent him under a car.Ripley’s Believe It or Not was there.Lt.Col Ralph A. Kluge, had one funeral at St. John the Divine and another at Arlington cemetery. (May 1932)

  4. Joan Catherine Thompson says:

    Richard Percical Carver was married for about four years to my Aunt Cady (Catherine Kluge whose father,Lt. Col Ralph A> Kluge, mapped out the New York ticker tape parade for Lindberg,started the first Boy Scouts in America,and built the first fireproof pier in NY.etc My mother adored Dick,but Aunt Cady left him for Johnny Voorhes Lott. She had no children by Dick,but a daughter,Catherine Feebie Lott,by Uncle Johnny. Dick remarried,also,but I know nothing about that marriage except he was heartbroken over losing Aunt Cady who in her day was quite a beauty.

  5. Mrs. Joan C. Thompson says:

    Do you still have the pictures of the Lott Voorhees’s farm house with the hidden room where the slaves lived? My aunt married Johnny Lott as her second husband. First was movie director Richard Percival Carver.Her only surviving child lives on LI Mrs. Cathy Divis-Lott.
