By John F. Sullivan

On May 17, 1899, Patrick Sullivan married Mary Jane Carroll in Yonkers, New York, despite the objections of Patrick’s family, who believed he was marrying below his class. But their dreams of living a long life together came to an end when Patrick died unexpectedly on August 13, 1911, leaving Mary destitute with four children and a fifth who was born three weeks after Patrick’s death.

Shunned by Patrick’s family, Mary and her children fought off starvation in a tenement in Yonkers for several months. Then one evening, she was visited by her two brothers, John and Barney, who insisted her entire family move into and share their meager home at Six Moquette Row. There, the children were raised by their grandmother, mother, and their two loving uncles.

A story for the ages, Six Moquette Row, by author John F. Sullivan, narrates the true story of how one family’s love and a shared devotion to one another turned what would have inevitably been a horrific tragedy into an incredible success—a story that now totals more than eighty descendants.

By Christopher T. Rand
At the outset, the members of author Christopher T. Rand’s family lived in a world of great wealth. They were among the richest people in the United States. But they then faced a dilemma: compelled to choose between staying on in their ancestral world or keeping up with the times in the nation around them and integrating themselves into the American mainstream. With each generation, the pressure on these individuals to choose between escape or immersion into the society became more and more intense.

In Silver Diaspora, Rand examines his family’s roots in the northeastern United States and chronicles his journey through these times, against the backdrop of the family history. Embarking on a search of a better new world, Rand’s parents leave the East Coast and land in California. From here, this memoir follows Rand through college at Berkeley, travels abroad, work in the petroleum industry and his experiences as a writer.

Describing the people, places and experiences that impacted Rand’s life, Silver Diaspora provides one man’s insight into the world in the latter two-thirds of the last century.

By Margaret R. O’Leary, MD
On December 7, 1793, an old man lay motionless at last, surrounded by his family, rabbis, and members of the society who would prepare his body for Jewish burial. Sixteen days after he was sentenced to jail, his family would go to extraordinary efforts to bury him in a Jewish cemetery ordered destroyed by the French government just two weeks earlier. The old man was Cerf Berr of Médelsheim, the tenacious eighteenth-century Ashkenazi emancipator of the French Jews.

Margaret R. O’Leary, MD, presents Cerf Berr’s life story, recognizing his profound contributions to the liberation of the Jews of France. While chronicling his incredible journey, O’Leary not only highlights Cerf Berr’s scrupulous honesty and reliability that earned him the deep appreciation of the French Crown, but also details how he besieged authorities in both Strasbourg and Versailles to grant political, social, and economic equality for all of his coreligionists in France. Cerf Berr achieved that milestone on September 27, 1791, only to die two years later after imprisonment by sadistic French revolutionaries.

Cerf Berr of Médelsheim is the biography of a man who was faithful to his people, sought the good for the community, and cherished justice—all while making a momentous contribution to the history of France and the Jews.

By R.W. Dick Phillips
During the six months before December of 1776, Commanding General, George Washington had retreated from nine consecutive battles with the British in New Jersey and had lost ninety percent of his army. Brigadier General, Arthur St. Clair answered the call with fresh troops, took over the leadership of a brigade and suggested the strategies of stealth which enabled Washington’s army to win the next three battles over the British in just nine days after Christmas in 1776. This drove the British out of New Jersey and avoided what could have been the end of the American Revolution. St. Clair walked with the giants of the American Revolution…Washington, Franklin, Adams, Jefferson, Greene, Lafayette and others. And yet, for more than two centuries, history has been reluctant to mention that St. Clair… • Became one of Washington’s most trusted of only 30 major generals. • Built four armies for Washington • Was the military strategist who helped Washington defeat the British in 1776-77. • Was President when the U.S. Constitution and the Northwest Ordinance were drafted. • Was America’s first and last foreign-born President. St. Clair also … • Stopped the Virginia governor from annexing what is now Pittsburgh (1774) • Protected Pennsylvania settlers from Indian attacks incited by the British (1764-69). • Assisted Governor Penn with development of Bedford and Westmoreland Counties (1764-74). • Renounced his allegiance to Great Britain to become a Colonel in the Continental Army (1774). • Established judicial system for six states of the Northwest Territory.

Arcangelo “Sonny” Parisi grew up in New Haven, Connecticut, and as the eldest brother of eight siblings, he spent a lot of time protecting his family.

There were plenty of fights with bullies and the Irish police, but he didn’t let that stop him from running the streets, stealing food, and seeking out adventure. From an early age, he learned to rely on himself and his Italian-American instincts for survival, which served him well when he was drafted into World War II and sent to the South Pacific.

Told by his granddaughter, this life story of a courageous sailor celebrates Parisi’s many achievements – from surviving the Great Depression as a youth, to marrying the love of his life, serving his country, and later becoming a mechanic. His life story is proof that no matter how big or small the goal, determination achieves results, whether it’s fixing a car or surviving a war.
