....... John Alan GRIMES, the youngest of four children, and my hubby . . . I don't post the data for living relatives . . . but this 'should' allow you a chance to see something familiar.

I do have WILLIAMSON, and McGINNIS, data but for the life of me . . . I can't seem to locate it at the moment. I'm assuming it's due to all of the re-construction around here. At least that's my sincerest hope! :o)

I have been making great strides at filling in many of the blanks!

Specifically I have recently made H-U-G-E strides on the BEANBLOSSOM for which I have a copy of the book about the family, and POE that I now have computer files on. The net result is that my brain just can't seem to get re-organized . . . let alone assimilate all of it . . . so I'll try to keep things as organized [and brief] as my scattered notes will allow.

I'd like to thank Belinda Rodgers for her assistance with the extensive BEANBLOSSOM data . . . Mike Reck has been invaluable with his ready assistance on the history of our RECK line, and so many of my husband's distant POE cousins that I've lost count. Altho Marge and Randy are two names that stand out in the family crowd!

I'm VERY certain that I'm not even scratching the surface, on listing my sources, but without all of you, I'd still be sitting here in WA without a clue. Some of my earliest helpers are noted in the above outline, and as I can get things all put together

OH! One surname that I had taken off of my research list, DEUBNER, can now be added back as it is in our 'associated families' group. It turns out that my husband's grandmother, Maude Edith LUDY, had a brother, John LUDY, who had died young . . . but not before he m. Sofia DEUBNER. The puzzle is solved! Somebody had gone on "memory", when they filled out all of the slots in my mother-in-law's Bible, and we all know how the memory can twist things! One of the biggest surprises was that there had been an uncle that my husband had never known about. It seems that he also died young,his name was John JOHNSTON, and in all of my husband's years of growing up . . . no one thought to mention him. Well . . . they did I suppose as my husband was named, John, as a remembrance for both of these men. I guess they thought that he'd just automatically 'know' all of that.

At the present time, I have NOT updated my website [or made all of the now necessary corrections . . . ], but you are more than welcome to check out my website anyway.
