I was born in the south, raised in California, transplanted to Las Vegas Nevada where I worked in the gaming and entertainment field, for twenty five years. And now am living in Western North Carolina. I love writing poetry and songs, singing, reading and home life. I love being home chasing the dog and cat, feeding the rabbits, squirrels, and never going near the bear who visits each year. I enjoy old movies, from the 30's, 40's, 50's and on up. Adored Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy, William Holden, Maureen O'Hara, Judy Garland, Gene Kelly musicals, and my main man John Wayne. I had the pleasure to meet the Duke many times years ago,in Newport Beach, California while I worked as a waitress. He was what he was wonderful and kind as can be to a young teenage girl. Who poured his coffee and served him breakfast early of the morn. I love meeting people making friends and enjoying life to the fulliest. I am a proud woman of southern Irish decent. I believe that right is right, and wrong is wrong. I won't be wronged, humiliated, or yelled at. Besides I'm an expert with a gun, loll. Always tell someone you love them, and never be to proud to say I am sorry, and thank you. And never go to bed mad at the other, or leave each other with harsh feelings, sorry goes a long way. And be proud to be an American, fight for it, love it, as others have before us. Nothing is perfect but one, and someday He will come again.
I appreciate you taking the time to give me all of this information. It is all very sad. It amazes me how these "bad" people just seem to be able to suck the life out of good people, and form relationship after relationship throughout their lives. My poor mother-in-law lived a similar life, being put in an girls home because her parents were alcoholics, she was adopted at 13, and yet, the family was still in her life, disrupting any attempt of her new family to save her from them. She lived a very troubled, sad life. I will save this information, thank you. I wish you well, and again, if you decide to pursue your family history any further, please contact me for information on the "White" line.
That is really too bad for your father. My dad also was in an orphanage for a time due to his parents divorce. It is terrible what some children have/had to go through. I went back into my records, as I am working on several at a time, I am actually related to you, through Kenneth Jr. His grandmother was Maude Izora White, a 1st cousin 3X removed. I appreciate you getting back to me, I will follow up on that lead for Cleo. Take care, and if you have questions about the "White" side of your family, just ask.
Alice Nunn (Large Marge) Thank you for remembering Alice Nunn on her memorial page. It is sad that there is not more information listed on the Internet about this iconic character actress. I have created a Facebook page in her honor with lots of photos and other facts: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Alice-Nunn/264857670207325?sk=wall#!/pages/Alice-Nunn/264857670207325?sk=wall
