The NWTA cannot vouch for the historical authenticity of sharknados.

I'm sorry to hear this news. I have many happy memories of Clay in the field. The big campfire in the sky has welcomed another friend.

He was such a great guy and will be missed, our prayers to the whole family

I first met Clay back in the early 80’s at an event in Oak Creek. He and Bob Reiser were instrumental in getting me to join. I am so sorry to hear of his passing.

He will be sadly missed.

Our deepest sympathies. We were made to feel very welcomed by Clay when we joined. We will miss him.

Prayers for Jackie Tollefson and the Tollefson family. We both really liked Clay, he was a great guy

He was a great friend to Bill and I and donated all his wife clothing to the LIV when she died. Jackie you will miss him so much. He made a great figure in the NWTA.

A fine and friendly fellow. We will all miss him

So sorry for your loss. You have lost many and I pray there will be many who can fill their shoes. Prayers for all.

We had happy memories at the reenactments all those years ago. Sorry for your loss.

So sorry to hear that Clay passed away. I have fond memories when I was his drummer boy in the 2nd Continental Light Dragoons 25 years ago. Can't believe how fast time goes by. I am sorry for your loss. He will be missed.

Time marches on. I’m sorry to hear of his passing. I remember Clay from the early 80’s. May he Rest In Peace.

Sorry for your loss

From Frank Vesel: I have been asked to respond to inquiries regarding the arrangements / services for Clay. As of this time there will be no formal final services for Clay, he will be cremated, and at a later time a private family service will be held. At a later time, there may be a gathering/celebration in Clay's honor, TBD. A possible memorial potentially may be held later this season at an NWTA event, this also will be determined. Should you have any further questions, comments, or would like to help in a potential memorial at an event later this season, please feel free to contact me. I will do whatever to help answer any questions. Let's keep Jackie & family in your thoughts and prayers. At this time on behalf of Jackie, I would like to Thank each and everyone who posted condolences, or asked me to pass the same, it was greatly appreciated. Again, Thank You for your kindness..........................

An incredible collection of (very small) eighteenth century material culture, and a glimpse into the lives of ordinary people of the past.A selection of the stories behind the eighteenth-century tokens - small, identifying objects - that mothers left their babies at the Foundling Hospital

In 1741 when the Hospital first opened its doors, mothers were asked to ‘affix on each child some particular writing, or other distinguishing mark or token, so that the children may be known thereafter if necessary’. Since babies were renamed on admission, a system had to be created whereby a returning mother could be reunited with the baby she had handed over to the care of the Hospital. The custom of leaving tokens with babies lasted until the 1760s, when receipts were introduced. However, the system was so established that babies continued to be left with tokens so that by 1790 they numbered over 18,000.

You can see a collection of tokens and discover their accompanying stories in our Introductory Gallery. Each Thursday, we will share the story behind a token in this album with the hashtag #TokenThursday

Happy Wyoming Valley Day to all.

After 1863 the Confederates join your merry group mourners.

I am traveling back to the states this morning. Flying British Airways. Irony. I'm going to gleefully wish each BA airline attendant a happy 4th of July.

Well some of us were still loyal to the Crown, to a certain point, but then...............

But the concept of "treason" only works if the Empire wins. The Rebels did overcome the Empire and its might!

Dont you dare Usurp me. I am happy with my 10 acres and a 🐖

Ah treason....a word invited by the winners to justify hanging the losers! 😉

Wrong flag, not the Kings Colours

The red stripe was not added to the X part until 1801
