Ok, I got some detail from my Dad.

My Great-Grandfather Homer worked for and retired from the Pennsylvania Railroad.
As a young kid he worked for his fathers company. His dad was Edmundand and his mother was Elmyria (spelling is a guess).
My Great-Great Granddad had a large construction company and built several of the
large schools and churches that were still standing the last time we went to
He was also the President of one bank and VP of another when the Depression
hit. He put his personal fortune into the one bank trying to save it. Naturally,
it didn't work and he lost his money.
