In mourning the death of her son, Janet Manion started a foundation in his honor in the family's hometown of Doylestown, Pa. But in terms of celebrating Travis Manion's life, his mother and others wanted to do something to bring together the former Navy wrestler's passion for sports and the patriotism that had led him to the Naval Academy in the first place. It was late August 2008, about 16 months after Manion was killed in Iraq. The seventh anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks was approaching.

Monika Sherman was looking forward to a quiet celebration in Baldwin for her 60th birthday on April 15 -- just her husband, Anthony, and any of their four children and nine grandchildren who could join them. Her son and her three daughters had other plans. After nearly three months of undercover calls and espionage-style e-mails from one family member to another, they managed to pull off a surprise just a few days earlier that included a reunion with Sherman's only sister, Gisela Chavanne, who lives in Oregon and whom she hadn't seen in nearly 20 years.

Of the many brilliant minds who settled in Bucks County, Pa., playwright George S. Kaufman was the one who came under a cloud. The lanky, bespectacled co-author of "You Can't Take It With You" and "The Man Who Came to Dinner" was making headlines in 1936, but not because of his work. Actress Mary Astor had documented her affair with Kaufman (among others) in her diary, and the lurid excerpts that wound up in the newspaper during her acrimonious divorce rivaled anything on stage or screen.
