To all the Gorden Cousins out there.

My name is Jo Rhodes and I am the step grandaughter of Alva Gorden Stewart Mackay.
I have a hand written genealogy done by Alva that has Elijah Josiah Gorden Born on March 7, 1884 in Polk Co. MO. I also have the pamphlet that was passed out at his funeral and it also says 3/7/1884. He was buried in Ventura, CA which is right by Oxnard. Two of Lige and Hattie's children were born in Mnt. View one being Alva and the other three were born in Schofield, MO. Alva and her sister Mary are the only two living at this time. Alva has one son from her first marriage and Mary has no children. Mary just recently gave me a photo of John Wiley and Lula Bell (not sure of the year)and a very young, very handsome Lige and a photo of about 18 year old Hattie. If any one of you is interested let me know. I also have a photo of their 50th wedding aniversary.
Grandma Alva has been sick for the last couple months and has spent some time in the hospital.

Jo Rhodes
