New Relatives!

Please meet Myrtle Ann Whitaker Gamblin (1886 - 1977)

Edmon Gamblin (1883 - 1955)

I created two memorials on Find A Grave a couple of weeks ago for Edmon Gamblin (my grandfathers brother) and his wife Myrtle Ann. I went back to check on them and found two lovely pictures some one named Liz had posted on the memorial. I checked on who the contributor was and found she was Elizabeth Bowers , checked my family tree and found she was their granddaughter! Her mother and my dad would have been cousins.

I contacted her via email and we had a good chat, seems when my parents and I were in Missouri in 1979, we stayed with her mother for a night. I just love it when I connect with family.

  1. How cool is that!? Good pictures too. I cant believe she lived until 94. Put that new cousin on your list for May.
