  • The profiles below consist of not necessarily famous people but just those that I think stood out from the rest due to their foresight, or public service, patriotism or just their apparently good standing in the particular settlement or community where they lived and worked. Most of these people I would like to think, thought of themselves as just a good neighbor or friend. (A Wikipedia page for a profile is indicated by brackets.)
