RE: email
Yes I did and I emailed you all my personal infor. I will try again before I leave work. Won't be back until the 3rd.
My email at home is down, there is big time road work being done and they broke something. I will also try a friends computer over the weekend.
Talk to you soon.

How wonderful!!! I can't wait to see them. I am sure my mom and uncles will be thrilled. I have fireproof safes for my pictures and genealogy. I would love to have them. How do I get my personal information to you....first time talking on the web.
Your step-cousin,

George D Matcham
I am a Matcham and wanted you to know that the photo is of George D Matcham I and the little boy is George D Matcham Sr. They are my Grandfather and Great Grandfather. Are you interested in the Matchams. I would be happy to help.

Mary Katherine Pollman Brees
Hi Sharon,

I was reviewing the obits that you sent me and found something strange. Harry Pollman's obit listed survivors as Mrs. Elmer (Mary) "Green" of Marquette Heights, not Brees. Do you think this was a typo or was she previously married to an Elmer Green?

Unfortunately I do not know the Matcham family. I'll do some searching for grandchildren of a sibling who may still live in Lorain County, OH. If I find someone, I'll find out if they know who would want the photos.

RE: Ethel J Avery Van Auken
I meant to tell you that my connection to you is via the marriage of Marian Ann Worcester, daughter of Benjamin Franklin & Mary Lilly Wilder (my g-g grandparents) to George D. Matcham then his marriage to Emma & their 5 children.

Thanks Sharon, I've learned to be patient in working with genealogy. If I hear from the library I'll let you know.

RE: Ethel J Avery Van Auken

You are most welcome and thank you for setting me straight about Raymond. Now that I look at his birth date, I must have had a senior moment to think Ethel was his bio. mom. Now I just have to figure out Mr. William's first name and when they married. KS isn't the best state to find marriage information, so all my dates are quesstimates.

By any chance, do you have any obituaries for Alva, Ethel, Harry, Raymond or Beulah? I know they are available from the Pekin Public Library as I sent an e-mail about how to obtain copies. As yet I've not had a response.

Yes, our families of the past and present can make life very interesting.

May I have permission to use your photo from Find A Grave for my Ancestry Tree?

I agree with Lisa, This picture was given to me almost 30 years ago as being Lucinda Cooley. At the same time I got pictures of Lucinda's parents, William and Sarah.
