Hi, Gene! Sinclair "Snappy" Paulus and Eva Linn Paulus are my g grandparents! You've made my day! I can never really find anyone in my line!
OK. Robert "Bob" Paulus is my grandfather, Married to Elizabeth Ann Knox-Surviving in Paulding, Ohio(92). They had 3 children: James, Carol and Robert Michael "Mike"-my dad. He was "Mikey" to Gramma Great! James had no children, is married to Joyce and lives in Anchorage AK, Carol (Ann, I believe) is married to Thomas McGrath and lives in Paulding OH, and has 2 children, Kristine(___?) and Kevin McGrath. Dad passed away at age 42 in 1986, leaving me and my brother: Catherine Sue Paulus-Steele, 2/3/1969 and Steven Michael Paulus, 6/30/1972. I have 3 children and a granddaughter and Steve has 6 children-1 or 2 he may not mention(unmarried).
I would LOVE any further information you have!! And boy would I ever love to send it to my brother for his birthday coming up!! We're sort of lost souls(well, blacksheep!)of the family, but our interest couldn't be email@example.com
Oh, Clare "Bud" was married to Virginia Iler-surviving in Paulding Oh, no children, and Don was married to Ruth Riggenbach Paulus, with 1 daughter, Sharon, surviving in Paulding Oh. Aunt Betty passed as a "Koenig", I believe and had one or 2 daughters...Connie (used to be Ames)-remarried.and I don't know the other if there is one...and Connie had 2 sons: Charles "Chuck" Ames-he's around 45 and I can't remember his little brother....
I THOUGHT I had filled out a damn (pardon me) family tree on here....can't find it. I had more info.
Gramma Great (Eva) had a brother Claude Linn, married to a Mabel and they had children-one is Claude in Indiana. And a sister Mabel, never married, no children. Aunt Mabel passed when I was around 10.
Now, for the Dearth connection....is Dr. Jerry Dearth any relation? Formerly of Harlan(Grabill) Indiana and then Big Rapids Michigan??? Cause he was my family doctor for a few years between my 1st and 2nd child.
Oh, yeah. Mikaila Elayne Steele, 7/13/90; Donovan Troy Steele, 8/29/93 and Makenzie Rae Steele, 12/17/94. Their father, my husband is Donald Edward Steele, we married on 12/26/87...we can't trace his family either!!!!! And last is Madaline Aliviah, Mikaila's daughter, born 5/11/09.
If you're interested in doing more research on other lines or writing a book-I'd like to talk!
Thank you!!!! ~Cathy
