Thanks for your response. I suspect your father is not the author of this book, as he is listed and cited as a source: "Howard William [Derby], in 1957 was living in San Francisco. . . LETTER, H W DERBY, Dec 15, 1957".

Listed also is his father George Derby, b 19 Oct 1863, Chautauqua, NY; his father Hiram Derby, b 16 July 1825, Chautauqua County, NY, and his father Asahel Derby, b 1 June 1789, Egremont, Berkshire, MA, as well as other children of each. Other lines in the book indicate both Berkshire, MA and Chautauqua, NY, which suggests a relationship; but the author made no assumptions.
