Funny things discovered on the way to your relatives

Our Great Aunt Arlene married a man in Masschusetts named John Coolidge.  No, he was not that Coolidge, but some thought he was.  Apparently Arlene and John decided to elope.   They went to Porchester, NY and when they gave John's name eyebrows raised and telegraphs were a flutter.   So there went their 15 minutes of fame.
