The First Family Scholar

I should have realized this was Uncle Anthony.  Uncle Frank’s daughter confirmed this.   Of course the logic used was that Uncle Anthony was was the Scholar of the family – the one who graduated from college.  And then he became a Park Ranger.  More about Uncle Anthony Burnisky.

I am not sure if people check the comments.  Joseph says:

Anthony worked for Baldwin Locomotive Co. in Philadelphia as an engineer prior to WWII when he was drafted into the army. During the war he was stationed at Kelly Field, TX and played claranet in the army air corps band. When he was discharged he returned to Penn State Univ. and received his second degree, this time in forestry. He then started a career with the U.S. Department of Interrior, Bureau of Indian Affairs and was assigned to the Calmoth Reservation in Oregon. His job was to manage the timber on the reservation. After his marriage to Mary he moved to Dulce, NM where he did the same thing foar the reservation there untill his retirement.

Aunt Dorothy told me he married a woman named Rose Mary – would that be the same as Mary?
