My hobby is genealogy, gardening and just being outdoors and scrapbooking. I have three sons, two step-daughters, three step-grandsons, 1 step-granddaughter, and a special little "granddaughter" puppy that we love like crazy. Recently we became "Great-grandparents" to a wonderful little girl, Emma. I was born in PA but I now live in OHIO. My husband's father's family are part Sicilian & part Swedish/my husband's mother's family came from Wisconsin with mostly a German background but also English and Irish too. I don't have enough time to devote to my research since going back to work full time but I try to add to my tree and work on other's family trees whenever possible. Some of my family are from: Ireland, Germany, to West Virginia & PA.
RE: Phyllis Jean Washburn Pollock Hi Carol, Just got an email from Audie, here is what he answered "I have also heard that my Mom's middle name was Julia. But, after getting all her paperwork after her passing last April, all I have seen is Phyllis Jean. I have attached a PDF of her Death Certificate. But I also have her marriage license to my Dad in 1945; my birth certificate in 1949; marriage license to Jimmy in 1964; in fact every document I have has only Phyllis Jean. I don't have a copy of her birth certificate, but I don't think that matters at this point. Her name was Phyllis Jean (Washburn, Mills, Pollock)." I think maybe she did change her middle name. Pat
RE: Phyllis Jean Washburn Pollock Hi Carol, I emailed Phyllis' son, Audie Mills, and he sent me a copy of the info he got from Oklahoma after her death. It said Phyllis Jean Washburn. So I don't know if she changed it from Julia to Jean or what. I'll email Audie again and see if he knows anything about Julia. Phyllis married my brother, James (Jim) Pollock, so I was her sister-in-law.
Alexander White Hi, Carol! Good to hear from you. There is a military marker in Macedonia: A.E. White. I'm transferring my memorial to you as I see you've already made one and mine is technically a duplicate. You can view the cemetery reading at: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~wvwetzel/proctor/MacedoniaCemetery.htm Take care.
