Hi Jack, I couldn't download the other attachments either. And genealogy records can be confusing. Some of my info comes from another genealogy record site. It does get confusing, like my questions about Florence and no one else could place her. I think she's one of Charles' brother's children perhaps. But then I have to ask, how is it that she's Lovina's sister? Unless Sarah had an "oops" child by someone. I think I found her somewhere as one of the brother's children but I need to go back and see. I did find her in a record with her husband,my great grand father Frank Jackson in another record. I have very little info on her. From what my uncle Gary told me,she didn't drink or smoke and she didn't really like gossiping.
I wish I could go into a time machine and meet these people or be invisible and go back in time and observe them secretly. I wondered how old you were, I figured you were probably around my uncle Gary's age, I think he was born in 1935. I always call him up when I find something new in the family history. He can't believe how far I look into someone's family history. I traced one of my Brisbin ancestors (they married into the Seeley family,who married into the Timlick family). I traced one of the female lines to Dunbarton,Scotland,Old Kilpatrick, 1663. I think the Connecticut thing may be true. But I was kind of hoping that they were from London or somewhere like Norwich.
I was wondering if any of my relatives had been born in Liverpool,even. I like the story about the aunts,in the email, that was funny. Great Grandma Florence used to stop my mother and her cousin Betty from gossiping or even whispering, by saying "Whispering is lying,and lying is sin, you'd better quit before you begin". Did you hear about my mother Marianne Timlick? You asked what her name was. She probably had met you at one time. She mentioned one Taddy, and I wonder which family he belonged to. She said he was a tenor. I remember her telling me that her Dad, Orley had played the bagpipes in the St. Patrick's Day parade, when she was small.
Well I gotta get ready for bed, and figure out what I'm going to have for lunch tomorrow. Blessings-cousin Sheila
