Hi Bill - I was born in 1934 Wichita, KS - Mother is Ruthelma Louise Jackson, Father Perry Otis Ward, Sr. California Cornwallis Askren was my Gr Gr Grandmother - she married Thomas Benteen Hunter. They had a son named Nelson R. Hunter and his daughter Gladys Marceil Hunter married William Henry Jackson.
We have raised 6 children and have 11 grandchildren and 4 Gr Grandchildren.
We retired from General Dynamics Astronautics and moved to El Paso, TX (which is where we are now) - one of our sons live here.
If you will e-mail me and give me your e-mail address will send you all my data on any part of the family you would like to have. Would truly love to have the data you have found also. The Hunter side is a toughie as most of the family died in MO due to cholera outbreak 1848/49 and there was a mass burial so am having a time finding info on them but am back into it now so hope to find more - Am anxious to find more on Askren's.
California Askren was known as Cally - her husband evidently put her into an institution but back then when women went through the change they sometimes just figured they were going crazy .....Anyway she got out and lived the rest of her life with family.
Anxious to hear from you
