Julia, We corresponded via email on Feb 1, 2010 about Perry & Rosa Hoskinson and figured out that you and I are 4th cousins. Perry's father, David Hoskinson, was my ancestor Rachel Hoskinson's brother, both children of Azariah Hoskinson II.
I have your father's middle name as Wesley - it is actually Wesely?
I would like to know who my living relatives are and how to contact them, so any information on your family and the families of your siblings and Hoskinson cousins would be appreciated. Also which of them have an interest in genealogy. We need to keep everyone who is interested updated as we learn more about our ancestors.
I'm also interested to hear that your grandfather had Alzheimer's. My grandfather, Ira Sigler, also had Alzheimer's as did all his siblings, his father, and all his children (including my mother). Ira's father was a son of Rachel Hoskinson, so could it be possible that the Alzheimer's in your family is the same strain in my family? Do you know more about who all had Alzheimer's in your family?Maybe your father knows more about this?
