Helena Thornhill from St. Alban's, Newfoundland, standing by a sign that says, "Welcome to the Village of Newfoundland - Pennsylvania" in Sept 2012. Anyone know how it may have gotten its name? The population there is approximately 1,900 people. Took a wrong exit and came upon this. Happy to have taken that exit though!

Information
I am looking to find out if anybody has any info on a person by the name of Darrell McDonald. Apparently he owned or still owns farmland near Spencers Bridge, Glovertown. Nobody seems to have any information on this person. Crown land doesn't even know. I am wondering if any of your readers can recollect anything about this person. He bought it in 1993 but hasn't farmed it since the early 2000s. If anybody has any info they can contact me at moss1960@hotmail.com.
