A life long resident of Newark, Olive often recalled the early years of Newark. Olive's grandfather and father were bricklayers who helped literally build the cities of Newark, Marshallton and Wilmington. Her father, frequently talked about the homes he built and the special pieces of himself he left in each building he built. Check your foundations for change or a personal note from Bill!
