Elsie pepoon sutton's 1933 history of the original table rock
In 1933, Elsie Pepoon Sutton interviewed people about their memories of the original Table rock. In the course of her interviews, she also gathered local history about other matters. They included the following:
John R. Allen, born in 1846, was 87 in 1933. He came to Long Branch in 1865 but moved to the Howe farm in the Bunker Hill neighborhood in the fall of 1866. When the Allen family moved to the Bunker Hill neighborhood, Peter Foale lived in a log house down on the creek, below the Allen place. "It was not as big as our log house. Giddings said Mrs. Foale had to stoop to get into Foale's log house. He and Peter didn't like each other very well."
