Hello Historical Society Members

It is with deepest regrets that we have to post the passing of one of our faithful members. John Rishel passed away on July 13 in Troy, Ohio. He was a teacher in the Greencastle-Antrim School District for many years. John was very active in the community having been a member of Greencastle chapter of Lions International. We will miss Johns presence in the Middleburg/Mason-Dixon Historical Society of which he was a member. Our condolences go out to John's family and friends. His obituary may be viewed at www.legacy.com.
Hello Members and Friends

Thanks joining us for our second meeting since the meetings were suspended due to the Covid-19 outbreak. We were delighted to have 37 members and guests present for our October meeting. That was down from 41 at the September meeting. As expected, we were captivated with Bob O'Connor's presentation on the elusive Mrs. Slater, the little known courier who traveled between Richmond, VA and Montreal for the Confederate Secret Service. Her disguise was aided by her attire and her fluency in both English and French. When Lincoln was assassinated, she disappeared along with over $600,000.   Coincidence???

Albert Richard "Dick" Walck
January 12, 1921 - November 28, 2021

It is with deepest sympathy that we have to announce the passing of one of our members. Dick Walck was a well known member of the Greencastle-Antrim Community. He served in the U. S. Air Force from 1952 to 1956. He also was involved with Boy Scout troops and packs for many years with numerous awards for his service. Dick was known for his collections of memorabilia including Indian arrowheads, and military items.
The Historical Society will miss Dick Greatly. We extend our deepest condolences to Dicks family and friends
