DOB. January 23, 1941. Can’t believe the number of my completed years - owned a few (3) Model A’s over those past years. I’m rebuilding (body off - frame up) a ‘28 Sport Coupe, as my current project.

That's also how I got my A.

I know us younger guys may annoy you older fellows with our know it all attitudes, but I'd love to sit down with you guys and pick your brains clean. You guys carry so much knowledge and it's appreciated when you share it.

Tony S, it is great you are here on this forum. Not a WW2 vet by chance?

I do know Grubbs, my mother was a cox, was born in galax. The grandfather that settled in this area was born in Lancaster Pa 1740 I believe. They lived an interesting life and I’m sure relatives, brothers sister stayed in Pa. being an old family is why I’m sure I’m related to so many here. Here’s a link with some info. https://www.werelate.org/wiki/Personavid_Cox_%2810%29

I suppose the county has shrunk a bit, Greencastle Pa is no longer in Lancaster Co., its directly above Hagerstown MD. I live right on the PA line, just below Lanc. Co. and spend quite a bit of time there. I have been told that Grubb is somewhat of a common VA name. My great grandfather had 2 families. My grandfather (born in the late 1800's was from his first wife/family. Story i was told he left them and started over! Dad did a bit of research and went back to the homestead in the early 80's, said that not much had changed in the last century and he did run into some relatives. Unfortunately that part of our past died with him, I would like to re-research it one of these days.

I wish somebody would pick my brain clean, it's getting a little fuzzy in there.

I like “Theola.” That’s a vintage name. :-)
