Yea! I, too, retired last year, officially June 30, 2006, but worked til Dec training my replacement. I have more time to do genealogy at night now; during the day, we're still repairing from Rita damage. It's been a very slow process.

As far as contact with their father, I've no idea. I remember my mother-in-law long ago saying that their father died while in some kind of institution. She didn't elaborate, but I had the feeling that he was in some type of mental institution. She died of Alzheimer's in 1999, so he may have as well. (My husband recalls that Dorse "Dave" was part of the Spindletop oil field in Beaumont, TX.)

I also don't know how or where she met my father-in-law, but I believe that she and one of her sister's both were interested in him at the time. Another of her sister's married his brother: Annie married Elton Hughes, a Church of Christ minister and she married William Clyde Hughes. They were from Shelbyville, TX and she and her siblings were in Shreveport, LA. They were married Oct 1936 when she was 20, so she should have been out of the Shreveport Trade School.

Actually, in looking at the ages of her sisters, Annie probably had married Elton and the other children may have gone to Shelbyville to be near her or with her.

I'll try to find out more if I can.

Enjoy your retirement!
