GUTMAN is my mother's family name. She was born a GUTMAN. I have the family tree back to the first 3 brothers and a couple sisters who came from Germany. What a wonderful bit of information it tells. I would like to know if the old home place still stands. The home and great store with its huge basement. How many hours did Mr. GUTMAN save those farmers and housewives trips into the town. He had what they needed or ordered right there on his wagon, pulled by horses. Glad to be part of the history of the area. Wonder if the house still stands, and or if a plaque of some kind might have been placed at the intersection of the roads to indicate the contribution of the family members. He delivered goods, rain or snow. And there was sure plenty of snow back in those days. Global Warming, I do not know. The snow comes as it always had forever.
