My name is Holly Hartley, I am 30 years old, and I live in Lenoir NC. I have 3 daughters, in the pic with me, they are #1 on my list. I ran across this website while I was searching Rube Walker. I found an article written by Thomas Cogliano about Rube. It was a big shock to find this article because Rube was my cousin, so this makes Thomas my cousin also. I love finding out about my family history and baseball, so I hope to be able to get in touch with Thomas.
Wow!!! To be honest, I have not followed a complete family tree of Rube Walker's extended family. This is really cool. I have written a letter on Rube Walker's behalf to the New York Mets requesting his induction in the team hall of fame. I have yet to receive a response from the organization yet.
But, this is a stunning discovery. Thank you for the message.
