Can it tell me about "Muzzie" Mandel? Or Francis? Does anyone know when the Mandel family came to Sherwood?

Clyde List interviewed Muzzie and Francis in 1992. There is a taped interview of the conversation to listen to. Questions about the family's origins were asked. It would take a little time to find their response. A donation to the Sherwood Historical Society might help. Hmmmm, yes....
