Here's the information on Edward Lossing's descendants:My email address is now firstname.lastname@example.org.
Edward LOSSING was born 11 May, 1820, in Norwich, Ontario, Can.son of Benson John LOSSING and Hannah A. CORNWELL. He died 18 June, 1865 in Pelham, Canada He married Elizabeth BECKETT (born 8 Jan. 1821 in Effingham, Pelham, Ontario, Can. She died 16 May, 1904 in Santa Ana, CA.) dau. of Stephen BECKETT and Anna TAYLOR.Edward had no will and we have a copy of the papers Elizabeth filed with the help of her brothers Joseph Hume Beckett and Whitson Beckett.Apparently, the whole family moved to Hokah, Houston Co. Minnesota after Edward's death, following Elizabeth's brother Joseph Hume Beckett and a sister.Two of her brothers and a sister moved to California, and that was probably the motivation for the LOSSINGs to move there too.Only Emma and Alfred remained in the East.But Alfred's children came to California, and at least some of Emma's descendants did too.

Mildredb. 25 June, 1893, Compton, CA d. 9 Dec. 1992never married.
Of my grandfather's cousins, Mildred was the one we knew best.
Her cousins Lloyd and Roy often stayed with their family.They are with them in the ? census.She told us how she greatly admired her Aunt Flora for raising those boys alone.She looked to her as a role model.
She had a boyfriend and they wrote for years but her father never let her get married.She lived a long and useful life.I remember visiting her a number of times.When she was in her 80's, living in her own home, she would do many things for the "old people."
She told of her aunt Emma and uncle Alfred.They never came out West and they lost contact with them.I have a letter where she contacted a Lossing wondering if he might be a son of her uncle Alfred.
Once she took us to visit another cousin, Ida Lossing Dickerson.They told us of the Lossing family of five boys and a girl.But very few Lossing boys were born.John had only one daughter who lived, Mildred, Stephen had two girls, Alfred had one son and three daughters, but his son never married.William had four daughters and one son who married.Benson had two sons, but Roy died.William's son, Charlie, and Benson's son, Lloyd, each had only one son, so Edward Lossing only had two great grandsons with the Lossing surname, At the time of WW II Lloyd's son Kenny went into the service.He was in his twenties and unmarried and I remember Mildred and Ida telling us that they were concerned that the Lossing name would die out.My father's second cousin with the Lossing surname had one son, who the last I heard was still unmarried.But after the war, Kenny came home, got married, and then we boys started coming.Mildred and Ida told us how glad they were that the Lossing name would continue.
My father and I visited her once in the nursing home, when she was in her 90"s and her memory wasn't as good as it had been before.She called us Roy and Lloyd, right family, but a couple of generations off.It made me feel strange to be transported 70 years into the past.

Susie lived next door to Lloyd and Della Lossing.I remember going over to her house.When she died, I was asked if I wanted to go to the funeral, but I didn't want to.I remember staying alone in my grandma's house, which would be strange, since I was only 5 years old at the time.I remember that my mother was upset because Susie's daughter or daughter-in-law threw out so many things, letters and such I suppose.
