Researching my great great Uncle Alfred Brosseau


Recommended Posts

When my Grandmother was 9 years old, her Father was killed on a train in Tx returning from a sales trip. She told me that she went to live with her Aunt and uncle that summer. Alfred and Grace Brosseau. He was Pres of Mack truck, and she was head of Daughters oh the American Revolution.  That summer, Grace was invited to visit the White House by Mrs Coolidge, who was a friend of Grace. My Grandmother had to spend the night there because of weather. And in the morning she took a dog walk with the President for an hour.  Been reading here about my great great uncle. Funny that I am a Car and truck dealer all these years later. Totally unrelated.

Ty.  I happened to be in Up State NY this week for a golf tourn. And I happened on Oriskany battlefield.( something I like to do.) And found it interesting the the Daughters of the American Revolution put up the monument markers while Grace was President in 1929. A very interesting couple. She sounds like the Donald Trump of the 20s

It is reported (see obituary of R. E. Fulton, NYTimes 5/1/1938) that Robert Edison Fulton, Sr. was president of Mack Trucks somewhere during the 1920's.  Can anyone confirm?

Saw that, as well as a wikipedia article on RE Fulton, Jr., which mentions it also.  But, I have yet to find anything "official" that says there was a Fulton at the helm of Mack.  I keep finding the same list that is shown above.
