Mercy College Interim President Discovers Family History in New York Village
Date:11/12/2013

Dobbs Ferry, N.Y (PRWEB) November 13, 2013

Mercy College Interim President Dr. Concetta M. Stewart got a surprise this week when she found out her husband’s great-great-grandfather was the first mayor of Dobbs Ferry, New York - the village that Mercy College calls home. Dr. Stewart, who is from New Jersey, didn’t have any personal connections to the village prior to this discovery. The first mayor, then called president, was James H. Pooley. Stewart says the relation came to light when a relative of her husband’s notified him of the discovery.

Along with making the personal discovery, Dr. Stewart also found a copy of the Dobbs Ferry Register, from June 29, 1923, that details the first fifty years of the village of Dobbs Ferry. On the first page of the paper - a photo of President James H. Pooley.
Dr. Stewart said: “We found out that the Pooley family home was the old Rudy's Beau Rivage. The connections are amazing!”

Stewart eagerly shared the news with the present Mayor of Dobbs Ferry Hartley Connett during their recent meeting. Connett, who had recently acquired a portrait of Pooley for Dobbs Ferry Village Hall, was just as surprised as Dr. Stewart by the discovery. Connett said: “Just goes to show you the importance of preserving Dobbs Ferry’s history.”
