Hi Mike, its your long lost cousin, Gary. I hope you are well.
Since we never got to know our grandparents, I'm curious as to their history as well. I only have two pics of Lillian and none of John.
I was just looking at dad's birth certificate and it shows our grandfather's name as "John James Birchall". Dad always told me it was John (nmn) Birchall. Go figure. John was shown as 36, Lillian as 32 when dad was born in 1919.
Mom thinks that there was Lillian's brother, James, living in Chicago at the time as well.
