Tammy, I need to let you know that Pearl Mae Flora was my Grandmother Hazel Ruth Flora's sister from Hamilton.
I saw Michael Cupp's message, and have been trying in vain to contact him. He has not answered his phone in over a week..
I have been trying to find more information about the Flora Family. I know that Pearl died, and the circumstances of the childrens demise from Michaels posting.
I just wanted you to know that I was out here. My Name is Kate and I live in Syracuse, NY. My father is originally from Hamilton, Ohio and remembers when Pearl died, her sister (my grandmother) tried to take in two of the girls after her sister passed. Virginia and Marjorie. My father also remembers that the girls were quite troubled and kept running away. (My grandmother was a pretty tough woman) So I don't really know the real story why the girls wouldn't stay and ending up in foster care.
I am also trying to contact the John Wells from Hamilton who was Marjories son.
Thought you'd be interested. Your father, I guess would be my fathers first cousin. Wierd, huh?
