OH. How I wished I had a phone number for you.

I am getting chills just writing this.

RE: LORA BELLE KURTZ
I always hate having to admit I am unrelated, but sadly it is the truth. Can I be related in spirit? I can't remember how I became interested in Lora and her family. It was probably through Samuel Britton, her b-i-law. I found the death information about Havert. I was thinking about driving over to Collinsville, since I want to know where he was laid to rest. I didn't know about William.

I spent a significant portion of my morning searching for Dessie. Someone on Ancestry says she died in 1996 or so in Florida, but I couldn't find any proof other than a Findagrave memorial. Since Dessie disappeared after the 1930 census, I suspected she had died.

A lot of I statements. LOL. I searched for Dessie Gowan and couldn't find anything. I have access to three newspaper databases and they can be quite helpful. I have been unable to figure out when Harry/Henry died. I'll search for him under Harry and see if that leads me to them.

I did find a Leonard Gowan in East St. Louis. He had a daughter named Carol. The newspaper article I found about him, was not too flattering. Do you know if Dessie had any kids?

I see you are in Missouri? Whereabouts?

Mildred was Mildred Johnson in 1944
Lee in 1966, 1967, and 1970.
1970 she lived in "Madison, Illinois." I looked up the location of Madison and it is near Granite City. Too bad I didn't know about this last week, I was just in Granite City. Road trip.

Do you know if Mildred had any kids. A son named Billy perhaps? I found a Mildred Johnson from Chicago who had a son named Billy. She was in Chicago with her husband in 1930 and by 1940, she and Billy were in California.

Stay in touch.

RE: ROSE BELLE FORD KURTZ
All of those caps really got my attention. LOL

I omitted to add Belle out of my absent-mindedness, so thanks for bringing it to my attention.

My interest in the family is through Lura. She was married to Harry George Britton. I think she died in Tucson, but I can't find an obit or a death record.

Harry and Lura moved with Harry's brother to Tucson and the three lived together until Sam's death.

If you want any other info, let me know.

RE: THANK YOU
You're very welcome, Sandy.

While I was at the church, I also took a picture of Ruth Lauer's page. If you need it, it's ready for you.
