I am Amelia Valley (Vassar, Gilles)grand-daughter.
My mother Amelia Louise Valley and her brother Edwin George Justin Valley were the children she had with her 2nd husband Edwin Justin Valley. He died in 1950. Grandma raised her 2 children alone in Buffalo,MN. She lived nextdoor to her sister Martha.
My mother had 2 children. My older sister, Amy Lynn Buskey was born in 1966 and died in 1968. I was born in October 1968. My mother was killed in a car accident in 1970. She was 22. She and Amy Lynn are buried in Buffalo, MN.
My uncle Eddie has 3 daughters and I'm not sure of where they are. Eddie died January 2010. He is buried at Fort Snelling.
Grandma died in 1982-83. I was in 8th grade.
I didn't get to know her or my family. After my mother died, grandma had me taken away from my dad and I was put into a foster home in Monticello. I was 18 months old and stayed with the foster family until I was 3.
My dad hated what grandma did (even though he has never been a part of my life) and made sure that she didn't see me. I started to see her when I was in 7th grade. She died a year later.
Grandma died of cancer in her upper colon. She sufferered for a few months. She died alone in her home. I wasn't allowed to see her. I went to her funeral. Shes buried in Buffalo at the catholic cemetary next to her sister Martha.

I would love to hear from ANYONE who has any information on my family that is a huge piece of me thats missing.
