Hello! I am looking for my relatives and hoping you can help me.
My mother's cousins; Ross and Lilly Van Dusen, lived their whole lives on Marianna Drive in Detroit, Michigan and had two children: Edwin, (Eddie) and June. All are now dead, but Eddie moved to Florida when he was young and married a Theresa and they had two children: Tracey and Griff. Eddie and Theresa divorced, I think, and he died around 1986, in Broward County, Florida I think and I recall that Ross and Lilly had his body brought home on the train.
My sister and I are a few years older than Tracey and Griff and they should be in their 40's now. They did visit our farm when they were around 8 or 10. Our family farm was located just south of London, Ontario, Canada. My mom and Dad were Bill and Kay Janes and we had a trucking company... they might remember the red trucks! My mom had 2 brothers with big farming families: Don and Ed Graff.
We are having a family reunion in July. ( Our second... ever...) I would like to at least locate these two and their families. They might have memories and wonder about us, but we would like to add them to our family tree and history books. I am sure they have families that should know about us too!
I have discovered a name in Pompano Beach for a Griffith Ross Van Dusen and this looks like it could be our "Griff". He has an unlisted number though and I can't access it.
If you could help me or maybe forward this to an email list that you have I would certainly be grateful.
Thankyou and hopefully, this will work!
Sincerely, Kathleen Janes
