Moose McCormick is my great-Uncle on my mother's side. His sister Ida married an Adams.

Janet - so the picture of "Moose" McCormick that you uploaded today (with his brothers and sister) is the same Moose who is in this picture and played baseball? That is so cool - and so neat to see pictures of him at a young age. What a fascinating family tree you have! Thank you for connecting the two pictures!

Thanks, My mother used to mention her Uncle Moose, but never said he played for the NY Giants. I did not find out until a friend, Bill Murray, the comedian, knew all about him. He is a sports buff. He gave me the baseball encyclopedia that has his stats in it. It is just recent past year that I started looking up info about him on the internet. My husband at first did not believe that it was the same person until I showed him Harry's info that I had on him in some old papers of my Mothers and found the old photo of him as a boy.

A real family treasure! That's the excitement of researching your family - you found out things you never knew. And yours is very exciting! ;)
