John Mckay My grandfather was Historian at the Annual Conrad Reunions. A Mennonite name, My grandmother being an Eicher.
the Story goes that Cornelious Vanderbilt and a Daniel Eicher had bought Staten Island.
A few years after they got located the English took it away from them. Cornelious Vanderbilt stayed.
Daniel Eicher being a Mennonite was non resistant and took the first ship to Philadelphia and joined the William Penn Colony.
The Eichers of today say they may wish that Daniel had not been so "vare Los", for they might be in Vanderbilts class now.
The question often comes up whether the world is growing better or worse. Mr. Eicher said,"I don't think I am better than my ancestors:they were just as honest as we dare to be".
These reunions were over 70 years ago in S.E. Iowa.
