Hi Michelle. Two of your father's cousins live in Stockton, CA. Their names are C.W. and Jim (Jim is my dad). They'd be able to fill in the family history, but here's what I remember. My (and your) great-grandfather Dorr married Lulabelle (Holiday). They lived in/around Watertown, SD, and had children: Dale, Charles, Don and Janie (Wollard) -- maybe others???.
Grandpa Dorr and Grandma Lou came to So. California, as did their children as adults. Dorr was somewhat of an inventor, one story I remember was that he made and tried to market "Hush's Mush".
Grandma Lou lived in a small house behind Janie and Uncle Willy's house in Sun Valley, CA, in about 1963.
Your grandpa Dale worked in the dry cleaning business, and made at least one trip to Russia on business. He gave me some coins. He smoked a pipe and was a nice guy.
Your father John was an eye doctor and came and visited the No. Californians in the late 70's. He gave us rides in his plane! He was a nice guy. Before that, when we live in Glendale and Riverside, we used to have a "Cousins' Party" every year; one year I think it was at your dad's house in Palm Desert.
Is Lorraine your mother? If so, she should be able to tell you about your brothers.
