My family dates back in Iselin along time. I still own some property that has been in the family since the house was new. BILLINGS and Benz. In fact my great grandfather Charles Benz was chief back in 1929 and lived on Coakley Street amongst other properties and my grandfather was right up the road on Wright Street. It is amazing how much has changed. We still owned that property until 2018 when my dad passed. I got picture from way back when my Great Grandfather Charles Benz would have the fire truck on the side of his house on Coakley Street. He and my grandfather had large chicken coops and other farm animals. Hard to believe that was how Iselin was. Charles Benz was part of some of the original founders and even worked for Leon Hess for fire safety back then. Charles Benz was a man that wore many hats including tin smith and even had a part in the old wood race track at Woodbridge now the football field. I miss the old days. Keep up the good work District 11. I gotta come visit soon. Ed

I grew up at District 11. My dad was Joey Ward. I even was married there! I have such fond memories. I have all of his fire memorabilia displayed in my wreck room. Hope everyone is doing well.
