I am trying to locate descendants of the ARKUSH and MANLEY families who might be able to help me.In the Norwich NY library, I found an older photocopy of a fading family bible record.One line follows:
Herbert Hovey MANLEY b. 1857 in MN, who ended up in Chicago then San Gabriel.
His daughter Dorette MANLEY b. 1889 married Ellis John ARKUSH.They lived in Redwood City, Hillsborough, and Burlingame.
They had Ellis John ARKUSH Jr. b.1914 and Carol Doris ARKUSH b.1915.
Ellis John ARKUSH Jr. married Laura Pearson and had daughter Sharon.
Carol Doris ARKUSH married Robert ETIENNE and had childrenRobert Jr, Dorelle, and John Roger.
The reason I'm trying to track this line is that the bible record was contributed by a Helen Nicol Tanois(?) of Burbank.I have written to the address given and have not received either an answer or returned letter.The name and address are handwritten and a little hard to decipher.There are parts of this bible record that are just unreadable, and I would love to track down whoever might own the bible to see if the bible record could be re-scanned with today's modern tech.This California line is not directly related to me, but the line from an ancestor is.Grateful for any clues!
