RE: Bertha Gordon
Thank you for the information. I do not have an account with at this time. I was not able to get much information when I did, maybe I was not searching correctly. I will pass the information you gave on to my great-niece who is working on our family tree.

Thank you, Maggie

RE: memorial 22979091 John Wesley Hanes
I did a little more checking and the 1900 census does list his birthdate as Feb 1850. His marriage license to Anna on December 2, 1879, lists his age as 30. I guess being so close to Feb, he figured age more closely as 30.

RE: memorial 22979091 John Wesley Hanes
In most instances I would agree, however in this case I do believe the date is 1850 (perhaps the 8 looks like 0? I say this because the 1850 census shows him as being 0 yrs, indicating he was born that year and had not yet reached first birthdate. The census reports for 1870, 1880, and 1900 all correspond with a birth year of 1850. I do appreciate your response and thank you.

memorial 22979091 John Wesley Hanes
Curious about the birth date showing as 1858, however he is listed on the 1850 census as being born in 1850 and had not yet had his first birthday so age shows as 0.

Bertha Gordon
Laura, my name is Margaret (Maggie) Gordon Wolf. Bertha is my grandmother (never met her as she passed away before may Dad and Mom met Fred is my father. I have tried to trace the Gordon family but have not had much luck, my Dad was not into ancestry and we could get very little information from him. Would be like to know how Bertha is related to you.

Thank you

Mary Webb Nicholson~Memorial# 22990113
Laura ~ Thank you for all you do on this site for many people! I really appreciate the Memorial for Mary. I am so glad to read her story, albeit, that it did not end well for her, personally.

My Sister, Judy's and my Parents were involved in Aviation in WWII on Long Island with William "Bill" Lear, and in Wichita, KS for LearAvia, BEECH & CESSNA Aircraft companies. The two of us are always interested in those who served, both Militarily and in Civilian participation. We have a grand fondness for Aviation!

What a wonderful story of ground-breaking for women, for service to both America and England, and her heroism by this Grand Lady for the Axis Powers during the War, and for Aviation overall! We honor her. The 99s were truly a very special group of courageous women. She and they soared with the Eagles and "...*slipped the surly bonds of Earth...and put out their hand(s) to touch the Face of God...".

Thank you for sharing her with all of us!
