Genea-musing's Saturday Night Fun. My father was born on Tuesday, October 31, 1905 in Jersey City, NJ. Teddy Roosevelt was president and a 1st class stamp cost 2 cents. On this day in 1846, the Donner Party was trapped in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. In 1941, Mount Rushmore was declared completed.
Other people born on Oct. 31: Chaing Kai-sheck, Dan Rather and John Keats. My father seems to be the most important thing that happened on this day in 1905. Halloween seems to be a day when the world doesn't want to irritate the spirits or they are trying to figure out what to wear to the Halloween party.
