Grandfather

Imagine my surprise to randomly check Wikipedia (searching for information on Melville Dewey of the Dewey Decimal System, for a p0st about the cool new book cataloging software LibraryThing) and I found a listing my own grandfather J. Franklin Jameson, whose father came to Oregon in 1851 but didn't thrive as a shop keeper and returned to Massachusetts.

LibraryThing allows folks to expand on the popular blogger topic of "what books are on my nightstand."
