Andrea,
My father was Charles A. Gagen (Dewey). He married my mother in 1931 when he was 36 years old. I have 3 bothers, Neil born in 1932, Jack in 1937 and Joe in 1951. My sister was born in 1935 and i was born in 1947, as you can see quite an age difference. We lived in Minneapolis for several years and then in 1966 we moved to Texas. My father passed away in 1974 and Father Jack Savoree, Mary Ann's grandson came and officiated at the funeral. Mary Ann was I believe my dad's oldest sister. My brother went to Paris and videotaped the headstones from several family members and got a lot of info at that time about the family history. Apparently, one of the families settled in Philadelphia for a while i do not know if it was our grandmother's family or grandfathers. Grandmother's maiden name was Lee. Both sets of parents families came in the late 1840's and George and Elizabeth were born shortly after they arrived, probably in 1849. If you know anything else please let me know. Thank you.
Lynda Allen
