"Hi Jack, I have a lot of info I can share but am pressed for time at the moment (I'm in graduate school and have exams). I do want to say that the waltzes, marches, Schottisches, and polkas that you referred to as classical music were not -…"

"Hi John, I am very interested in what you know. I found contradictory dates everywhere I looked online and in print. I am basing most of my dates and timeframes off of newspaper articles, census records, patents, and city directories. I know there…"

Jack replied to Jack's discussion Hello World,
