Thaw family

I was excited to see this article. My grandparents were domestic servants for the Thaw family, first in France and then in Pittsburgh but years after the murder. They cared for Harry's brother, Benjamin, and when Benjamin died in 1932 he left my grandfather $500 and each of his other servants $100. I remember my grandmother saying that "old Mr. Thaw" had a "bad temper". I think my grandparents used the money to buy a chicken farm in Parkers Landing, PA (now Parker, PA). I currently live near Big Pond, PA. Thanks for this article.
