Wife Karen Grimes, Mother Roberta Dyer Howard. Robertas parents Lida Matchett Howard and Robert Dyer Howard. Great grand mother Emma Goldsmith Matchett and her husband Viraldo John Matchett. Looking for any dates Birth? Death? Marriage? Roberta Dyer Howard was born in Wash DC. I have a picture of Viraldo and Roberta when she was about a 4-5 year old. That would have been between 1910 and 1920.
