About the Book

This is the story of more than a century in the life of the Timpany/ McConnell/ Riley/ and LaRoche extended families against the background of the chairmaking industry in Gardner, Massachusetts, from 1869 to 2008. It is a family and social history of people moving from one country to another, showing who they were and who they became. It is a local history as well, describing life in Gardner during the Industrial Revolution as the above families moved from rural life in Ireland and Canada to towns in "the states" for work in the chair factories and on the railroad. It follows their lives for six generations as they became an integral part of the Gardner scene. There is a special focus on the rise and fall of the chairmaking industry and the immigration of various ethnic groups.
