Dear Char: I just found your posting. William Meese and Eleanora Berger Meese were my grandparents. They had five children: Gladys Meese Wirth; Mae Meese Troiano; William Meese who married Lois and moved to Pennsylvania in the 50's; my mother, Evelyn Meese Lavello and Arthur Meese. My uncle Billy had 4 children: Jimmy, Patty, Kathy and Ricky. I imagine your husband Richard is my cousin Ricky. I would appreciate your letting me know. I would like to find out what happened to his family.
