Mary, I guess we're 2nd cousins too by marriage. I brought back a few photos from Mt. and Mom has some which I'll try to get to make copies of. Bertha died in Missoula, Mt. - she had married Lawrence Patrick Holden and they had 8 children. The Holdens were homesteaders in Mt. I'll try to remember to ask Mom if she remembers Edwin - sometimes she can't remember if she ate but 60 years ago is clear as a bell. I don't know anything about Sarah J. other than she was married 3 times but no one knows who to. Also she died in Seattle didn't she? George talks about his grandmother and how angry she would get when he told her there was some Spanish blood in the family. She admantly insisted it was only English but he said that English sea captain went to Spain and brought back a wife. I think I have a photo of her. You see Geo., his mother, her sister and a brother look very much alike.....they obviously share the same genes and they're very dark complected and do look Spainish. It's a very distinct look. Of course as they
've gotten older that has changed. Anyway, we're getting ready to put our house on the market so it's busy now but sooner or later I'll get some picutres to you. Pat
