Lewellyn,

This message is in two parts:
PART I--
Here is a list of BG Josiah Gorgas's children:

William Crawford Gorgas (Willie)

Jessie Gorgas

Mary Gayles Gorgas (Mamie)

For more information about the Gorgas family, you may call Mr. Marion Pearson, University of Alabama at (205) 348-5906.

PART II. One of our own perished on 9-11-2001.

As you probably know, one of the victims at the Twin Towers, World Trade Center, on September 11th, 2001, was my uncle, Francisco Rodriguez-Gorgas (Nick-name: "Paco", born in Corozal,Puerto Rico in 1935. He was visiting the towers at the time - he was an Engineer/architect and designer.. a terrible loss.

His remains have not been found - still missing, however, the City of New York provided our family a symbolic Urn with Sand and ashes from the towers. We really miss him!
Peter
