Hey Robin
My Granddad was Eddie Nelson Dann, there is also a Nelson Eddie Dann i think. I am not real sure about that tho. My Grandad was Willie`s uncle. Their fathers were brothers. I do not as yet have information about my Great Grandfather. If I connect things correctly, my Granddad was your Father`s Great uncle. That would make your Great Grandfather and my Granddad brothers.
My Granddad, Eddie Nelson Dann was born in Missouri on 8/24/1886 and died in Dinuba, Ca
in April of 1974.
You must be a little younger than I am if that is the case. I will be 53 years old in June.
There seems to be a lot of confusion concerning the family past my Granddad. I believe his mother was Mary Boudry or Boudra. Perhaps her and her husband divorced and she moved to Arkansas around 1904 or somewhere around there. This is speculation on my part at this point in time. I know that my Granddad did not keep in touch with many of his siblings. There has to be a connection that I have not found yet!!!! My own memory of talking with Willie and my Granddad leads me to believe that Willie`s father and my Granddad were indeed brothers and they did not correspond nor did Willie`s Father claim to be related to my Granddad. Willie told me that his Dad and my Granddad were brothers. Larry W. Dann
