Find A Grave
Yesterday I got a call from FedEx in Houlton, ME about the package you sent, so I rushed right up to get it, since they are closed on Saturday.
Boy that place is harder to get into than Ft.Knox.
You must have been concerned about not hearing from me, but the country store and PO in Orient, ME burned down about 4 years ago and was never rebuilt. Considering they only had the # to go by, I don't know how they managed to track me down, especially into Canada.
At any rate, thank you for your thoughtfulness and I will follow up with a letter soon.

I sent out a previous note, but must have hit the wrong key as it disappeared.
Midgie.

Went up to Houlton to pick up the package.
They called since the address was no longer viable. That little country store and PO burned down about 4 years ago and was never rebuilt.
Thanks for your thoughtfulness.

Will follow up with a letter soon.

RE: Find A Grave-PARLER
Actually it was a new friend from Find A Grave who found Claude's Death Certificate. Yes, I heard the story about the phone call too and the most I can think of is that perhaps it was another of Leila's husbands. She married Claude first, then Louis F. BROWN. -------
April 29, 1910 - Jacksonville City, Precinct 17, Duval Co., Florida, Sheet No. 19A 349/452
Brown, Louis F. Head MW 22 M1 0 FL US US
Messenger, Express Co.
Brown, Leila Wife FW 24 M2 0 2-2 FL GA FL
Parler, James D. Step-son MW 8 S FL SC FL

Williams, Olive M-i-L FW 42 Wd 4-4 FL GA FL
Williams, Wanda S-i-L FW 17 S FL GA FL
Stenographer, Mail Order House
Then she married Joe SULLIVAN. I don't know who he was unless related to Ed and his sister.
I was living with them for one year in lower NYC to go to Sight Conservation Class -- with ROCCO.

Parler, St. Claire Grn-son MW 15 S FL SC FL
Rester, Elizabeth J. Grn-dau FW 1 6/12 S IL DE FL Not sure who this is. Maybe Wanda's dgt.
I wonder if Leile and Uncle Donald were together?

Yes, you can speak to your mom about the DOD on my mom's tombstone. We had a few words over that and I made her correct the official records.
She said she did but I never check.
Mom and Leila always lied about their ages.
You should get your mom to tell you the stories she told me about when a Census taker came in NYC and she was in charge of us kids.
She has a lot of funny stories.
You can use my e-mail address if you want to be more private. I check it almost every day.

RE: Find A Grave
I would be very happy to transfer them over to a closer family member. I am sure you have a lot you would like to add, Brad.
They will start coming shortly.

I have gone on to add Dick's family.
If you would like this family transferred over to you I will be happy to do so.
In that way you will have control to do with as you please.
