Hi Mary,

I was also very excited to get your email. I came to Youngstown Ohio shortly after my immigration to Canada (1965). I stayed with my Aunt Mary and Uncle Charlie. Aunt Mary was my dad's sister. I met your husband John who is my cousin and Charles and also Betty. Betty showed me around Youngstown. I would certainly love to hear about how Betty, Charles and John are doing. Charles and his wife came to visit me in Toronto in the '60s.

My dad who was Mary's brother was born in Ayrshire. They had another sister Susan who lived in Preswick Scotland and many a happy childhood holiday I spent with Aunt Susan. She had two daughters: Agnes and ? and I am not sure about sons.

My father John Wilson Hillhouse was 18 years older than my mother. Subsequently all my cousins on my dad's side were much older than me. I was born when my dad was 54. Sorry I cannot go backward too far but when I retire I hope to do a family tree. I have an address of someone in Scotland who will do this for me for a price. Do keep in touch.

Helen Bibic
