"Duane and Sheldon's parents: Elizabeth *Peterson and William *Zabriski(spelling). Their father left the little family when Duane was 6 months old. Elizabeth went to live with her sister with the two little boys. She became a teacher and went to Alaska to teach. She met and married Garwood (bush pilot) He died several years after Elizabeth. He left the marriage a year befor Elizabeth died. Never saw the boys after that.. We adopted the boys at Elizabeth's request. There is another twist to the story..We discovered a half sister of Duane and Sheldon..She was born to Elizabeth (out of wedlock) and the baby was adopted. Sherri Mai.
She started looking for her birth parents after her adoptive parents both were dead. Th trail lead to us. We keep in touch. She and her husband live in Idaho and have two daughters. Here is another part of the story. The boys are actually my 2nd cousins. My grandmother and their grandmother are sisters, which makes my mother and Elizabeth first cousins. How's that for geneology? Any questions send me an email. Regards, Lorraine (Handy Boyce, daughter of Lydia Staker, sister of Cornelia Staker)
