Dear Edna, I'm not sure who sent me a relpy but I linked it to yours, Mine said it was from Rebecca Smith, though I could not find the reply! The names were all too familiar but when you stated that there were sixteen children, I don't think it's us. I am looking for six out of seven children, with the eldest being around 55+ Kenneth E.Smith and Joan Jesse,Mike,Tommy, Jeantte Gentile and a younger one, but we don't know much, The eldest Kenneth, worked at the Continental Can Co. In around 75' and all of them had about found each other and were looking for my husband Billy Casper in Mineral Wells. My mother in law cut the ties after being afraid she would loose the only child she could have, Billy. So in fear, she cut the contact. Funny over 20 years ago we could have already found them. Hopes and prayers to you and yours. Billy's wife, Jeani.
