hi Fred, I am unsure of any connection.However during WW11 I recall receiving parcels from USA of food I believe. (I was young at that time)However on the death of my parents I found photos various of Shirley (possibly born 1925) in the Sequoia trees in Yosemite(I think). Also an address torn from an airmail letter with a San Diego address.Sadly no one to ask about connections. In a family album there is a photo of a vicar taken in Oxford I believe possibly 1900, but who knows. If these points jog your memory let me know.
