Starting fresh with haircuts in Union Beach: Heather Allen Semmens lost her whole kiddie kuts shop when Hurricane Sandy hit. Heather was out of work for 9 weeks. Now she has her shop back up and running. So many pitched in to help and get the shop opened. Cherished Kids Cuts is now open. Heather was a little worried if she would get her customers after being closed for that long, but she was all booked and so busy. Heather is so happy to be of service to the area again. Union Beach still has a long way to go for people to get homes.

Hester’s History (cont.)

My father had some brothers and sisters. I am not sure if I will remember all their names. There was William Rist, a minister, Isaac Rist, Dennis Rist and Willard Rist. Dennis went into one of the New England states and changed his name to Charles Rice (I understand). Isaac was shot through the window while sleeping in his bed at Crown Point, New York by a jealous enraged man. Willard Rist died in the home of my sister Esther Rist Knipes, on the Edwards Hill near Earl and Daisy Allen’s home. Father’s sisters were Delolah, Rachel, Elizabeth, Mary and Caroline. I don’t remember if there were and any others or not.
