Hot off the press, it looks like the newer book has already inspired the discovery of this mystery person's identity. Kenneth Hard, grandson of F.G. Bourne, tells us that the super sleuth is his son, Gary S. Hard. In his research, Gary found a Dec. 4, 1926 New York Times article that reports about a "Henry D. Bradley of New York, who attended" Marjorie Bourne's marriage ceremony to Alexander D. Thayer in the Episcopal Church of the Messiah, "near Norristown" i.e., Gwynedd Valley PA.
As further evidence, Gary found a Dec. 16, 1973 New York Times article reporting the death of this H.D.B. It states: "Henry D. Bradley, president and retired publisher of the St. Joseph New Press and Gazette and a former director of the Associated Press died [Dec. 14, 1973] ... He was 80 years old." Included in an impressive list of credentials, the article states: "He was general manager of the Norristown (Pa.) Times Herald from 1924 to 1926".
This blog is the first outlet to reveal this exclusive breaking news to the world, which apparently has many afficiandos of the mysterious Dark Island lore in the Thousand Islands. Great work Gary!

I happened to be browsing in the Borders Bookstore in the Salmon Run Mall at Watertown NY a few days ago and saw the above notice on their corkboard.
Surprise, we (Robert and Patty Mondore) will be at the Salmon Run Mall Friday, June 18, 2010 from 4 p.m to 7 p.m autographing copies of the hot new book, Singer Castle Revisted. Mention that you saw this blog and you will receive a great gift from me with the purchase of this book!
The book is published by the famous historical press, the Arcadia Publishing Company. Super reviews are coming in from the initial readers. If you want to be inspired and have any interest in Singer Castle on Dark Island or the Thousand Islands, this book, chock-full of pictures, is a must-see.
