I knew Loretta French Dix, 1916-1987. Also knew her ex-husband, Albert Dix, 1914-1985, and their 3 sons. Middle son, Ron, and his family are very good friends and I've helped him with his ancestry. Would like to compare notes. email me at CrankshawDavec@aol.com

Pamela,
Good to meet you too. As you know, Don passed away in 2008 from cancer. We use to see Don & Judy often. I have only seen Judy once since Don's passing. Both wonderful people.

Ron is in Tully now. He has some trouble with his legs and finally retired. We hope to meet him and Linda at our daughter's in PA in about 2 weeks. Our kids grew up together, and Linda is related to my wife. Have met Duane, but its been several years now.

I had Grover's birth as June 6, 1885 in Cardiff. Some of the census records he was in Lafayette, but I understand that the village of Cardiff is in the township of Lafayette. Understanding the geography is helpful. You are probably aware that his parents divorced and that he was raised by father's sister Jane Wright. He is in the 1900 census as Grover Wright, age 15, nephew of Ebenezer & Jane. You probably have that too.

email me at CrankshawDavec@aol.com and I can send you my notes in a word document. I don't like to put present day info on the net.
