Dear Ms. Kornman:

We are writing to you today about a matter that we hope will touch your heart and recall fond memories of the days when you were a member of Hal Roach's "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series. Although "Our Gang" celebrates its 90th anniversary this year, the show still influences and entertains audiences to such an extent that we are compelled to seek your assistance about a disturbing situation.

As you may recall, from 1929 to 1931, Norman Myers Chaney played the part of "Chubby", AKA "Chubsy-Ubsy". Sadly, in 1936, at just the young age of 21, Norman lost his life to a glandular ailment and this made him the first of the Our Gang kids to depart from our physical world. Although he was only a member of the cast for a brief period, his involvement is well-remembered by so many of us.

We were shocked and stunned to learn that due to his family's hardships, Norman is currently buried in an unmarked grave in Baltimore, Maryland. We view this as an unacceptable travesty, and would like to give back to someone who gave so much to the world. As such, we have initiated an effort to raise the necessary funds to erect an appropriate headstone to mark Norman's final resting place. We are also going to try and obtain a headstone for his mother if funds permit.

A story that appeared in the Baltimore Sun on May 11, 2012, can be found here: http://www.baltimoresun.com/features/baltimore-insider-blog/bs-ae-chubby-our-gang-headstone-20120510,0,1858782.story

As a fellow cast member of such an elite group, we are hopeful that you would be willing to lend your support to our effort. We are not, however, seeking financial assistance from you. Frankly, you have already given so much to the world with your acting contributions over the decades. But we would like to have you publicly lend your name to the effort as well as make yourself available, to the extent possible, for any interviews, whether tv, radio or newspaper, so that we can help spread the word of this fund-raising endeavor. Should you be unable to participate in any interviews, we would ask that you supply some quotes that we can disseminate to the media to help generate donations and acknowledge your support.

Once successful in our effort we hope to hold a public ceremony at Norman's gravesite and, of course, were you able we would love for you to attend to honor his memory. In essence, this effort is being done as much for Norman as it is for all of the members of the "Our Gang" series who continue to bring smiles to children and adults throughout the world.

You can contact me if you have any questions or wish to discuss our efforts. We really appreciate your consideration and hope to hear from you soon. And we also truly thank you for bring smiles to our lives.

Regarding Autograph Requests:
Thank you all for your interest. At this time Ms. Kornman is unable to fulfill all of your requests for an autograph. We are, however, working on the possibility of being able to offer an authentically signed photo available for you to purchase within the U.S. We will let you know if and when this offer becomes available. Until then thank you for visiting and come again!

Thank you. John Frank site manager

Hello,
I am the granddaughter of Mickey Daniels who acted with your sister. I am 44 years now with children of my own. I never got to meet him and wondered if you had any interesting info about him that is good I could share with my mom(his daughter)
and my children. By the way, one of my daughters has his red hair and we all have some of his freckles.
Blessings,
Debra

Hello!
I'm writing b/c I have an 8mm reel of Dover Films "Our Gang Growing Pains" silent short w/your sister Mary Kornman and Mickey Daniels - from what I have found in my limited research. Let's say, it's enough to intrige me. This reel was my father's and he has passed, so I'm not familiar with it and can't find reference to this short anywhere. Can u help me with the history of this? Thanks so much. BTW, you are lovely! Deb

Dear Ms. Kornman: your quite lovely in your photos.
Your sister,Mary, was beautiful too. For many years
My father told me that we were related (same last name).
However, he is a bit of a story teller. I am curious if you
Have relatives, "Kornmans" in Pennsylvania or Ohio?
There are many Kornmans in Pennsylvania of German
heritage. Pittsburgh and central Pennsylvania as well as
Cleveland, Ohio. It's a long shot, but who knows?
