Great. I figured you out. William C. Lohmann was my fathers older brother. Aunt Lizzy was a great dame, and good to me. My father was what you would call the black sheep of the family. I'm not even listed in the county records as being my fathers daughter. My Half-brother Ralph and my kid brother are there. They were both chips off the old block. I remember going to Uncle Bill & aunt Lizzy's house over near Oak Street School. Carolyn Johnston Taylor was in the same year of school, but a lot smarter than me. Dr. Carl's son Carl were always to good and a regular snob when it came to talking to me, even though we were cousins. My mother died back in 1993, and my brother Billy was living with her at the time, he sold off everything she had in her house on Virginia Ave. Anything that I could have used was gone. He died in 1996. I was in Virginia, in a blizzard of a storm and couldn't get out. By the time I was able to get to Burlington, the house had been trashed by his ex-wife and children. They said he did it but I'll never know. So anything you might have I would greatly appreciate. Don't worry about how long it takes. I'm living in Texas with my two youngest sons. I ran out of space on the tree I'm working on , so am going to break it down from each individual in the third generation, that should take some time. Well, you have a Happy Holiday and God Bless. I guess breaking it all down I'm either a great-aunt or a distant cousin in there somewhere.
