James Millard Van Dien

M, #17401, b. 30 April 1907, d. 25 May 1987
Note*  Grandpa was a talented man. Besides being an able carpenter, electrician, plumber, and architect; he also wrote poetry and composed songs. He designed a house using his eight sided dome that he designed and built for the NJ School of Conservation. This house had two domes. One larger one of two stories and a smaller one for the garage. A connector was built to bring them together. The large dome had a spiral staircase with a skylight at the top. In the upstairs bedrooms there were built in dressers. The downstairs had the living room, dining room and master bedroom. The connector contained the kitchen and laundry rooms. David Van Dien assisted in building this house. It was off of route 206 in New Jersey. The house was sold and was destroyed by fire a few years later. Rheba tells of how he was able to calculate in his head the amount of materials needed for a project. There was a construction project that needed an amount of coils to heat a particular building. As the foreman designing this project stated this, Grandpa stated it would be this many feet of coil needed. The man looked at him and stated that he had college graduates who would calculate the amount needed. He asked them to figure out how much was needed. They got out their instruments and came out with two very different figures, one of which was completely unrealistic. The foreman again asked the men to refigure the numbers. Grandpa did as well. Again the numbers the men came up with was totally unrealistic. Finally, the foreman stated he would do the calculations and began using his tools to do the work. His calculations were within inches of Grandpa's calculations. He asked how Grandpa was able to this in his head. Grandpa looked at him said, well it's x number of feet per link, x number of inches for each bend and x number of feet long. He simply added that up in his head. New Jersey School of Conservation had a 50th anniversary (June 5, 1999)and commemorated former employees who have since died. Regina M. Kelly, Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies, had this to say about Millard Van Dien. 'Millard Van Dien, maintenance supervisor for 24 years, since the beginning of SOC's operations, raised, with/ his wife Leona, their 6children in the faculty housing facilities that we today call Cayuga and VIP 1. Millard had worked with Dr. LB Sharp at the trailblazer camps. They cooperatively designed the structure known as the 'shadien' which was used in many of the early programs at SOC. Another of Millard's creations is the Dien Dome, examples of which are still in use in SOC programs--- the Trading Post (just outside) and the Lapidary dome (on the Sequoya campus.) Until the late 1980's the decentralized camping units for teenagers in the Camp Wapalanne program that we called Sam Houston (now gone) and Molly Pitcher, the site of the present day climbing wall, also were groupings of these domes. I spent summer of 1969 there, as unit leader of the Molly Pitcher Unit-- which used to be called 'Kit Carson Unit.' Millard was a kind and gentle man, with an incredibly dry wit, as well as being a master builder, a master draftsman and a master craftsman who took enormous pride in his workmanship-- and justly so! He was extraordinarily talented. He retired 25 years ago and I can still in my minds eye see him testing for a break in the electric lines in Long House--- [straight] pins... [he placed one in the line with one hand and another in the line with the other hand. If he felt a jolt he would travel down the line until he didn't feel the jolt between his two hands.] (time permitting: tell how he tested for a leak in the gaslines-- ran his lighter down the lines until flame flared.)1

Leona Edna Barrett

F, #17402, b. 8 November 1905, d. 15 February 2000
Father*Ferris Egbert Barrett1 b. 21 Apr 1861, d. 13 Dec 1945
Mother*Blanche Mabee1 b. 16 Feb 1888, d. 28 Sep 1956
Note*  Left the Barrett farm to work an Inn at Greenpond New Jersey. There she met Millard Van Dien. Ferris Barrett had offered Leona, Theola and Fanny the opportunity to go on to high School after the 8th grade. The condition was that all three had to go. Theola and Fanny did not want to go, so Leona never completed her education. She wanted to go on and finish her education and regretted that that opportunity was not given her. Notes from conversation of Ferris Van Dien and my grandmother ( Leona Barrett Van Dien) '7/20/99... I visited Mother tonight and reviewed your emails about the Barretts and High Breeze Farm with her. James Edward Barrett was her grandfather, papa's (Ferris) father. David and Harriet were her father's grandparents. She was very clear on this. High Breeze Farm went all the way up to Ezra? Barrett's property and all the way down the mountain to Springers.(Could this be Patsy's?). Dr. Freed lived in Ezra? Barrett's house and was a distant cousin of Papa's. [Clarification: Dr. Freed was a distant cousin to Papa] ' She lived in the big house until after Luther was born and then they moved across the road to the little house Papa (Ferris Barrett) built. He also built the barn. They didn't move back across the road until Grampa (James Edward Barrett) died. (She didn't recall why).' From E-mail from James Van Dien, Jr (7/26/99) '...the Fourth of July picnics. The whole family - us, the Washers, Theo and Herman, Aunt Bessie, etc. would gather on the Fourth for a picnic in the Pine Grove. The pine grove was a little area planted with pine trees about 1/8 mile up the road from the farm house. It stands out clearly in that wonderful view of the farm done by that New Milford artist that we all have. I don't whether it was planted by James Edward or Ferris Barrett, or exactly why. I'm guessing to provide a shady place for the summer boarders to go for picnics Mom would probably remember. The only time I recall it being used though was on the Fourth. I don't remember what we had to eat, probably the usual picnic fare, but the piece de resistance was Grandma's tutti frutti ice cream. It was made from bananas, pineapples, oranges, pineapple juice, and maybe other things that I'm forgetting and was mixed of course with the pure cream from the cows on the farm. It was the only time of the year that grandma made it (and it was a lot of work) but it was heavenly. We used to eat it by the soup bowl, so it's a wonder that we don't all have totally clogged arteries.' Some memories: My (Fred L Hammond) earliest memory of Grandma was her combing out her deep chestnut red hair at night. She had a long braid that she would comb out with [I believe] a horsehair brush. Another memory was when I was about 11 years old. I had gone walking the trails at Stokes Forest and came across these beautiful flowers. I had never seen anything like them before and thought Grandma would enjoy them. So I picked a few and brought them to her. She graciously accepted them, stating what lovely poison ivy flowers. She then placed them in a vase and told me to go and wash my hands so I would not get poison ivy. I didn't know poison ivy could have flowers but not once did she scold me for picking them and presenting them to her. E-mail February 13, 2000: Dear Fred---I went to see Mother at the hospital today. It was an interesting visit. She looks much better than I had expected. She has oxygen tubes, intravenous tubes, etc. and a very congested cough. I remember your father had a very congested cough the last couple of days. I'm not sure she ever really knew who I was, I know for sure she didn't know me at the beginning, even when I told her I was her oldest daughter. However, she did talk and carry on a conversation which she hasn't done in a long time, at least, not with me. Usually, she just repeats cliches. She told me about living at Green Pond and Life Camps and being snowed in for over a week at both places. [Mom later told me Grandma told how Grandpa used the horses to plow the road from Life Camps to Route 23 only to find that Route 23 was not plowed] Talked about going to Florida on vacations when I told her we were planning to go next week. The TV was on, and there was dancing on it, and she talked about loving to square dance when she was young, and not having done it in many years. It was really amazing, considering the way she has been most times when I've gone to visit. When I was leaving, she asked me to send her a card from Florida, so at least at that point, she remembered I had said I was going. ... it was nice to have her really making conversation... Love Mother [Phyllis Van Dien Hammond].1

Blanche would churn the butter by hand in the cellar where it was cooler. She then took it upstairs into the kitchen and used a paddle to shape it into blocks. One of the first purchases after gaining electricity in 1948 was a butter churner. She would sell the butter to the neighbors. She also would sell eggs, vegetables grown in the garden across the road. The gladiolas she would sell only to her best customers. She also made home made ice cream from the rich milk the cows gave. Some of the flavors remembered were: Vanilla, Peach and the fourth of July speciality: Tutti-frutti. Phyllis B. Van Dien Hammond remembers, her Grandmother used to take the feedbags cloth which was usually a very colorful muslin fabric and make quilts and aprons from them. Rheba Van Dien McKernan and Vickie Stephens Van Dien have two of these quilts made from this material.4
