Several horse and carriage barns which served the houses on main street, once lined the back alley. One by one they disappeared. One fell victim to an arson, others were raised as they became old and obsolete (Note: my father Vincent Orndorff lost his wedding ring while fighting a fire at the Long's barn (7E Hanover St.) on this alley.

"In the early 1950's young adults died in a single car accident at this location. The car was traveling through Bonneauville heading west. The concrete bridge abutment had been made larger sometime after this photo was taken but before the accident. I seem to recall that a doctor was also killed in an automobile accident at this location." (RG)

I was probably less than ten years old when I remember my dad coming home and telling us about the single car automobile accident in which the five youngsters died. Back in those days officials would often leave a crashed auto at the scene of the accident for a day or two as a way of trying to encourage the driving public to drive safely. In the case of the five deaths the auto was towed to a garage in Gettysburg and placed where curiosity seekers could view it. Dad took mother and us kids to see it. I seem to recall a two-tone salmon or tan and white Ford of about 1953 vintage that was pretty well smashed up in the front but did not look as bad as some of today's accidents that drivers walk away from. There were no seat belts or air bags in that old Ford and the metal was so thick that passengers smashed around inside the vehicle instead of the metal crumpling to absorb some of the shock. (KO)

This attractive group of Bonneauville friends sport the popular hairstyles of the 1930's. Just a few years earlier the styles were considered bold and sinful by some. The fact that Emma Myers who was near fanatical in her religious beliefs, wore the style, is evidence that by the time this photo was taken the "sin" implication was gone. Hollywood starlets like Greta Garbo and Joan Crawford popularized the short hair and finger-curl look. (KO)

The south side of White Run Bridge was once a popular picnic ground for Bonneauville residents. This picture creates the image of a bridge that looks much larger than it actually is.

Below; Karl Orndorff, 10/6/13 Interview with Linus Smith, McSherrystown, PA

Where were early Smith Reunions held when you were a child?

"They were held at Clarence Sneeringer's farm outside of Bonneauville." (Now the Richard Mills dairy farm, west of Bonneauville on Rt. 116 - 2451 Hanover Road.) "Clarence and Lizzie sold the farm (early 1950's) and moved into Bonneauville." (Now 27 East Hanover Street.)

Were there any pavilions or other structures at the picnic grounds?

"No. There was a baseball diamond. It was located between the barn and the creek. Some of the guys could hit that ball all the way into the creek."

Besides baseball (mushball) what other games did you play?

"We liked to unhitch the horses from the buggies. Some of us boys would pull the little kids around the picnic grounds like we were the horses." There was a big swing off of a big tree by the creek."

"Father (Peter) Huffnagle would come up from Cuba for the reunions. He always brought two new bats and two mushballs. He always smoked his cigarettes in one of those long plastic cigarette holders." "Father Peet would stay for a few days and then go home."

Did your family come all the way from McSherrystown by horse and buggy?

"No. They had no car. They would pay someone to drive them to Clarence and Lizzies."

"Mrs. Huffnagle married Basil Hockensmith."

"I don't know how the beer was handled. A lot of em' liked to drink beer - even my dad."

"There was no bottles or cans, They set the keg in the running water in the creek to keep it cool."

"Puddin Laurence came to the reunions. He was an umpire in the minor leagues."

What else did you do at the reunions for entertainment?

"What the women liked to do was take some of their clothe off and get in the creek to cool off with the children."

"I drove a thirty-six Buick back then."

"As the sun went down over the hill, one by one, everyone would go home."

Discussion with Roger Weaver, 11/30/13

Do you recall Sneeringer's picnic grounds?

"We played ball there (after our chores were done.) Later Clarence moved to East Hanover Street in Bonneauville (29 E. Hanover) and I built a new house next door (25 E. Hanover.) When I sold the house it was gifted to a young Trostle couple who did not want to live in Bonneauville. It was then owned by Francis and "Mick" Bennet. Clarence liked his beer and he always had a large garden. Clarence came over one day and said that my kids (Bon and Roger) were pulling vegetables from the stalks. I said well I guess there is only one thing we can do "Clairnie"; put up a fence. On one of the hottest days of the year we dug the post holes by hand. "Clairnie" went in the house for a beer and came out with two. He insisted I drink one but I could not take more than one mouthful of it." "He was a good old guy." (RW)

The old Chrismer (later James Gebhart) barn stands on a sharp curve where automobile accidents abound before good high. Noted Roger Weaver on 11/30/13; I saw at least five people dead on that corner. There was a family of three Smiths that died, A guy driving a coupe; they found a pistol in his glove compartment, and the Gebhart boy going to the fire company when his dad had a fire at the farm. Once we were rescuing a guy from a car that ran off of the road there. Someone hollered; look out here comes another one. A second vehicle missed the curve and crashed into the first car."(RW) "I remember when the 'floor lady" (supervisor) at Bonneauville Sewing Factory (Maple St.) left for lunch. She got as far as the corner. A tractor trailer came around and jack-knifed. She was killed instantly." (BW) (Note; Norm and Rebecca Weaver lost two sons and had a third severely crippled and a nephew killed in three separate car accidents around Bonneauville, PA.) (KO)

At the time my grandparents Raymond and Myrtle Orndorff lived at 2 W Hanover Street. There was an open field from their house to the barn on the corner. We visited them often on Saturday evenings. I was very young. It seemed like every visit we could set on the west side of the house was and watch an accident. Grandmother had a nervous condition which was attributed to the precariousness of their location and witnessing the pain and death. I believe that it was a breakdown that led to my grandparents moving to Florida. Life did not suit them there. Their family was in Pennsylvania. Granddad tore down an old brick one-room schoolhouse and used the material to build the house at 4West Hanover street-even closer to the accident site. Shortly after he passed grandmother moved to Hanover. (KO)
