Patty and Julie, my two sisters, Karl, my brother and I grew up in Elizabeth, as did Helen Kobil my mother, her four brothers and my grandmother. Helen Kobil`s maiden name was Pavilino and she went to school with Orrie Rockwell. John, Charles, Frank, and Steve Mackinack were her brothers. We literally lived on the riverside of the railroad tracks (502-504 First & Bayard Street). Everyone in the family had some connection with the steel, coal or river.My Uncle Steve was a riverman and a great affecionado of the rear paddlewheel steamboats that plied the Mon, Allegheny and Ohio. He knew the history of each and collected hundreds of photgraphs. He would stay up into the night listening to riverboat traffic on his ham radio. He also built many steamboat models from scratch. If I`m not mistaken, I believe he had something to do with the building the model of the Sprauge.
