Hi Kelly, It has obviously been some time since I have checked in. I,too, am thrilled to hear from family connections.
Uncle Jay had two daughters. Dorothy' last name is Terry, not Rush. That is the little area she lives in which is only about 1.5 miles from my home.
My grandfather was John. I am unsure of the actual adoption as opposed to just assuming the name of Taylor. I have been fortunate enough to gather considerable info on the Colegrove side that I will be happy to pass along to you as I can.
Thanks for responding. Is your father the Jay that lives in Kan. My uncle, Kenneth Wayne also lives there, in Salina.
