I'm going to Mendon.It is three miles east of Rutland on Rt. 4.My sister Barbara lives in Rutland Town and my sister Joan lives in Rutland city.I usually stay with my mother on a short trip.On my long trip, I become "Uncle Turtle" and carry my home(motor, that is) withme.Say, do you think we might be in the Turtle Clan of the Abenaki's????
At first, I thought that Pat lived in New England, but then in a posting he mentioned being in Florida.That's another place I have to go.Both my wife and I have family there.There is a LaCoe I need to visit.Talked to him once on the phone and he mentioned several names that I could remember.He was also born in Crown Point same as my gfather Samuel...And strangely,he is also Samuel LaCoe.Did I mention that I have relatives in the Ti. area?Where in Vt. are your relatives?
I would be glad to meet Pat in Vt. and take him along to meet the CHIEF.Do you really think he would like to go?I'm hoping my oldest sister, Earlene, can make it in from Idaho.She just moved from Cal.
My mom was in great shape until two years ago.She finally had to stop driving her stick shift Nissan(85 model that looks and drives brand new).
Talk about lots of relatives; whenever I got back to Vt. dad and I would ride around the countryside.His comment about every other house was cousin "so and so" lives there.I never paid any attention and now I can't findmany of my "cousins".I guess that geneology is something most people don't get into until the relatives are all gone.
