Link: A History of Brooklyn-Curtis Bay, Maryland mentions the John H. Geis Lumber Mill. Bob took me on a tour of the mill when I was a youngster; about all I remember about it is me accidentally running my forehead into a board sticking out from a table. Bob then took me back to his house for lunch and a game of chess with, I believe, his grandson, Tommy Scruggs. Since I had never played chess before, Bob directed my moves and "I" won, which, understandably, irritated Tommy no end.
