1935 Ice in the Delaware River by Louise Smith Posted on June 12, 2013 John Briggs, Freddy Dieckhoff, and Mary Briggs next to the Delaware River in winter. My mom grew up in Barryville with the Delaware River viewable from their front porch. Here she is with her brother John and a friend Fred Dieckoff near the Delaware at flood stage when the ice is breaking up. This entry was posted in Barryville, Farewell to Eldred, People.
