I saw your message post (dated: 16-Dec-2000) regarding your father, John Bennett TRIGGS (of Newlyn, Cornwall-CANADA) and your mother, Eileen DUNN (of - ?). I'd like to confirm if your mother is the same person I'm researching for my friend. My Eileen DUNN (b: About 1943, ME.) is the daughter of Arthur Wellesley Dewhurst (b: 12-May-1900, ENGLAND. d: 12-Jan-1989, CT.) & Hilda Maywood Allen (b: About 1918, Nova Scotia, CANADA - still living, CT.). Eileen's first husband was Delmont Ralph Furlong Sr. (m: 1-Jun-1963, ME.), they produced a son, Delmont Ralph Furlong (b: 29-Jul-1963, ME. d: 25-Feb-1983, CA/suicide). Delmont Sr. took their son and moved to Southern California. Eileen's second husband was Robert Paul Dunn Jr. (m: 1-Dec-1964, ME.), they produced a daughter, Londa D. Dunn (b: 1-Dec-1965). Robert left Eileen for her sister, Doris Pearl. Londa was given up for adoption and raised in PA. Robert and Doris had 3 children (1968-1972). Doris died in 1982 from cervical cancer. Their last born child was also given up for adoption. To my knowledge Eileen Dunn did not remarry again, nor did she have any other children - again, to my knowledge. If your father and mother were married and had two children/son's (you being one of the two) - how is it possible you dont you know the name of your brother or where he is...? Is it possible my Eileen Dunn is your mother and she continued to have children after 1965, possibly giving up another one for adoption? My Eileen Dunn is presently living in Texas. Where is your Eileen Dunn? Does this sound familiar, is a mystery unraveling - or is this a shot in the dark (wrong Eileen Dunn...?). Hope to hear back from you at your earliest convenience. Kindest Regards...Melissa Ysais
Ps. My friend is Londa who currently resides in Southern California - like me. I'm trying to research Londa's biological roots. I hope I'm on the right track...thanks.
