I don't know if we have a connection or not. I am looking for a Jay Fredrickson. I think he may have been a grandchild or greatgrandchild of my greatuncle Lewis Channel. Lewis was married to Katie Brooks,on a 1910 census they lived in Iowa.They had 5 children, Leo, Thomas, Maggie, Thelma & William. Lewis died in 1938 in Sacramento,and Jay placed a real nice marker on his grave in 1985, so I feel that Jay must have been a decendant.
