Hi John,

I will gather some of the pertinent info I have and pass it to you. Selina Jane was my paternal grandfathers Aunt. My Paternal Great grand father Samuel' sister. Samuel came from England in about 1895 via Ellis Island On the SS Lucania, a steamship out of Southampton to the mines in Vananda Island Canada, later to Silverton, Colorado and then to Roseville, CA. Where he worked for the Railroad and lived his life out in Sacramento. He must have had a fond relationship with his sister, your great grandmother because along with my Grandfather, his son Walter Earnest, he named his only daughter Selina Jane after his sister. She still lives near us in a assisted living facility and is quite sharp.

Heading to bed but more to come! Greetings cousin! I live in the San Francisco are and did live in Portland for 4 years in college from 1979-1983. My sister lives in SE Portland.
