Thank you so much. You definitely have Hiram Pershing right. I remember my dad telling me years ago his middle name was pershing.
I am not sure about the rest of info yet though, but am saving it to notepad to compare notes with my aunt who is in her nineties. She is the only one left who met any of them. My dad is in his eighties but he never met them as he was the product of a second marriage and born quite late in his mother's life. I think she was in her forties when he was born.
I know she died in orange county florida, or osceola county. It may have been 1961 or 1962. My dad's memory is slipping away on him and I did not get enough info from him when his mind was really sharp.
I've been trying for months to get certain things from him, but he keeps procrastinating on me. And we are too far away from each other for me to visit and make him stop what he is doing to retrieve these things for me.
Also, the family bible was stolen from us that had the info in it. It belonged to my danish grandfather. The pages were photo copied and we are still trying to ascertain who has the copies.
But you have been most helpful and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am really new at this and don't have alot of money to pursue many areas that could be very helpful to me, so again thanks so much.
