A little late for this invitation...but "Surprise!"

...Like 153 years late. This was found in an envelope of old papers, which I am now trying to determine how the papers are connected to each other. If anyone would like to volunteer with the research of  the names below...please feel free. I mean, how many people could have lived in #14 South 3rd Street? No state is mentioned but the other papers indicate a Boston to Vermont connection of some kind.

  What committee? Williamsburgh where? I hope the guest of honor was surprised. I know I was.

  1. I love a mystery. With a quick web search I found Cobys, Leaycrafts, and Hendricksons associated with Columbia University.

    And since Williamsburg, Brooklyn -

    - was originally spelled with as ..burgh in the 19th century, I suspect that is where you will need to go to find the final answers.
