Linda, I would love to have a copy of Margarets death certificate. I have a picture of Margaret with George , Bill and
Charley. I also found my information on the sisters and who they were married to. I have that Bell was married 3 times. One of her husbands was Julius Tenbrock. He died and she married two more times. Aunt Winnie was married to Harry Lee and they had 3 daughters, Tressa, Marie & Dorothy? I'm not sure of Dorothy. Clara was married to Robert Brown and they had a daughter, Roberta. I have the marriage announcement of Clara Agnes to Robert Irving Brown. They were married in 1907, the year my dad was born. Where did you get your information about the sisters? and does it match mine? A little information about the children of Alta and Earle. My dad had 3 children, my brother Roger, born in 1941. my sister Carolyn born in 1946 and myself, I was born in December of 1949. Donald had two daughters, Terry born in 1940, and Sandy born in 1944. Terry lives in Kirkland WA. Sandy is living in Pasadena California. Aunt Maxine, Uncle Dons wife recently passed away. However Vincents wife, Audrey, lives in Pendelton, Oregon. They had no children. Dad, Don, And Vincent are all deceased, as well as my mom. My family lives in the Seattle, Tacoma, WA. area. Roger in Enumclaw, Carolyn, in the house we grew up in Lakewood, WA. and I live about 3 miles from Carolyn in Steilacoom WA. One of the oldest towns in Washington State. Of my family, including Sandy and Terry, I am the most interested in Geneology. I even visited, Cornwell England where Earles dad came from. I am so grateful to know Grama Altas mothers name, but I still have to track down her maiden name. I plan on writing to the Vital Statistics of Iowa to see if there is a birth certificate for Grama Alta. I'm not sure of the month or day of her birth though. It is very curious to me that you did not know about Alta. Or did you mean you didn't have any information about her? I am relatively new to geneology searching. I have always been interested in it but don't have the time to spend on it that I would like. I recently found my grandmothers passage, on my moms side, through Ellis Island in 1903. That was very exciting too. What of your family? How many other cousins do I have from Christophers family? Looking forward to hearing back.

Kathy
