I received E-Mail that said:

There is also a castle in Lloyd Harbor, n. y. called “East Fair”. I have a picture of it in a book. I could scan it and send it you if you like.

Later, I received E-Mail that said:

East Fair castle was once owned by Sherman M. Fairchild of Fairchild Aircraft. He had the castle built for him, from one he saw in Europe. My name is Fay Krupski, and I grew up in this castle until I was 14 years old. My Mother was the cook for Mr. Fairchild, and my Father was the grounds keeper and also Mr. Fairchilds driver.

The castle sat on 66 acres, had 2 tennis courts, one indoor and one outdoor. There was a beautiful inground pool with a view to Connecticut. I believe it was 1972 when he died, the house was sold to his close friend, Diane Williams.
