Hi Joshua
Looks like you have the bug! I too love this mad hobby! I work on both my side of the family and my husbands. Actually his is more interesting. I am happy that you will be able to fill in some of my blanks on your family. Like birth and death dates, marriage dates, places etc.

Regarding Joseph Eugene Routt, Jr. I have an article from a newspaper dated March 14 (year unknown) regarding the body of Captain Joe Routt who was being returned to Chapel Hill for reburial. Congressman Lyndon Johnson sent a telegram advising the family.. He died 10 December 1944 in Germany - cause - "Killed in action WW2". I don't have a wife for him but list 2 daughters Marilyn born ca 1938 and Rosana born CA 1939. No more info on them.

I have looked a little in my file - I seem to remember being told that Milton Lee committed suicide.

Joshua, you may e-mail me at I will be away for about a week. Our only little granddaughter was killed on a tractor accident on 6th October and we are going to the lake house for about a week and try to re-group our thoughts. We still have 4 beautiful grandsons, but I will miss our beautiful little 7 year old Lucy. She was an organ donor and has saved a bunch of people. That has helped us in our mourning process - I feel we have a bunch of little Lucys out there.

Don't give up on me I will get you more info. Let me know what you want.
