Hi, I have some information for those working on tracking the LaShomb family.I know tracking the LaShomb ancestery is a job enough, but I'll give what I have for information to be added on some of the younger generations.Here goes:
(1)Grandfather - James "Jim" LaShombb? d. 1994?Married to Beatrice Rockwood b ?d. Jul 1999(I only know one uncle - William LaShomb - also deceased in late 1990's, but my father said that Jim was one of 9 children) Children of James and Beatrice: (2) Brenda "Bonnie" LaShomb b.? first marriage to a Clark, then to Peter Pecore (d. 2002)children: (3) Abbigale, Louie, Willie, Jeremy, Mark (all Clarks I believe) and then Anna Pecore(as of posting, the first 5 all have kids, though I'm uncertain of exact numbers and names) (2) Gerald "Bub" James LaShomb b. 1947 : 4 children through first marriage: (3)David, Peter, Brian, Christopher; 6 Children through second marriage(Oct 8 1976) to Donna Lee Burnell(Deshane) b. 21 Feb 19, 1958.

Uncertain of the wives. Children: (3) "Mickey" - uncertain if that is her real first name.Married a "Macarthy" and has one or two children;Gerald - approximately the same age as Odena anne.
