I am the result of a Westbrook boy from AL and a Perkins girl from MS. My husband and I are doing our family history for our kids and grandkids to have one day. I am totally hooked on the scavenger hunt of it all! Most of all, I love finding out about the amazing people whose blood runs through my veins! I do this in memory of all the passed generations of Wesbrooks, Stewarts, Perkins, & Atkins! Can't wait to meet them all one day!
RE: Frank Perkins Jr Hi Lori, The information is accurate. I have researched the crew using USAAF personnel records on USAAFDATA.com, American battle monuments commission, and unofficial Ploest roster, Ploesti.com. Also other contributors have added information drawn from primary sources. I hope you will add the information regarding the Sgt. Service record. and I hope you and your family approve. Thank you.
RE: Cousins! Hi, Lori. This is a week for cousins. I was also contacted by an Amberson cousin who saw my name on an Amberson memorial. We may have met in Huntsville, we have lived here since 1963 but are originally from Gadsden in Etowah County. I have a first cousin living in Rome: Sylvia Hine is , of course, also from the Westbrook/Amberson/Bullard line. I enjoy finding relatives to share information with. Thanks for saying hello. Edna Elizabeth Westbrook was my g.g.grandmother.
Westbrook Family Hi Lori, I have some Westbrook family in my file's, and will be happy to share it with you. My Grandfather James Edward Latham had a older brother, named William H. "Will" Latham, and he married Mary Celestine Westbrook. She was a daughter of Marselle B. Westbrook. William G. Latham Jr.
RE: Robert Powell pic Lori, I am so sorry. I just went to East View to up-load another pic and saw that you had claimed Robert Powell. I have removed the pics that I upload. I had claimed the pics for his wife and if it is a double maker I also take the pic of the spouse. I did not mean to step on any toes. It was an honesty mistake, one I have learned from. I will also look to make sure that the spouse's name has not been claimed before I up-load pictures. Again I am so sorry. Please do not give up on binging a volunteer.
RE: Perkins in Friendship Cem. I am related to some Perkins but not the ones you mentioned. The information about connections usually comes from cemetery records, or other family members who connect them to their memorials. I will gladly transfer any that you like, just send me the names!
