Donna’s connections goes back to the arrival of her father’s Irish family in the United States and her mother’s, the Treadwell family, from the forgotten town of Shiloh. Shiloh was located at what is now the back entrance to the cape, Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge, until the government purchased all the land and relocated the residents. The family owned the only gas station in Oak Hill.
David’s connections goes back to Canaveral National Seashore way before it was the National Park.
