Were the 2 families close & do they keep in touch still? It may be something we see again now there is a credit crunch!

Did these gentlemen work in Pemberton too? I remember seeing the horse and workers, etc. I don't remember exactly what they did. I saw them when visiting my grandparents. Can anyone help me with this?
