Her husband changed his name after emmigrating the the United States from Europe following an assassination attempt on his life in Russia in 1907. The name he chose, Jacob Makohin, was that of his friend who was killed trying to save his life.
Born in New York City, Mrs. Makohin lived in Newton for 30 years before moving to Sharon 8 years ago. She was a member of the Women's Club of Boston. A funeral mass was celebrated on Monday at Our Lady of Sorrows.

Michael Robert Patterson was born in Arlington and is the son of a former officer of the US Army. So it was no wonder that sooner or later his interests drew him to American history and especially to American military history. Many of his articles can be found on renowned portals like the New York Times, Washingtonpost or Wikipedia.
