My name is Susan Ann Hetzel Benz Sledge. Hetzel is my natural name, Benz is my adopted name, and Sledge is my married name. I am starting a tree on my mother LEONA MARY MORRIS, she is the daughter of BERTHA L. MORRIS, who is the daughter of Bertha Rosina White Mikesell.
Explanation: Bertha Rosina White Mikesell and Luther had a son named Albert. Albert had a son named Glen Harold Mikesell who married Marie Lillian Baehne. My natural dad gave me her name,address,and phone #, I wrote it down while he was telling me face to face, Lillian Marie Mikesell. She died in 2001 and I notice that her estate is default on taxes, and the state of Wyoming is trying to pick it up.It has names of the kids that are trying to fight it. My dad also gave me the name of Bertha L Morris, whom I found out was Bertha Dill/Della/or Ludilla Mikesell and was the daughter of Bertha Rosina White and Luther Mikesell. I have my mom's birth cirtificate that names Bertha Della Mikesell as her mother.I have my mother's death certificate that has her mother listed as Bertha Dill Morris. Her death name for the social security death index is Bertha L. Morris. I then found the Mikesell site from lsmith and knew that Bertha Dill/Della/Ludilla Mikesell and Bertha L. Morris are one in the same as the date of birthand place of birth match. I am putting a family Mikesell tree on the internet. I was adopted at 8 years old and it was said that my grandmother(Bertha L. Morris)called the welfare cause she couldn't take care of us three kids because she was too old. I too am looking for answers and pictures. I have one of my natural mother and my dad gave me the information on the morris family and said he didn't owe me a thing. He did give me about five other pics of me as a baby and one with me and my siter. I need a picture of Bertha L Morris, I got the one of Bertha Rosina off the Leslie Mikesell Wood family site. This was wonderful!!! Please e-mail me at email@example.com anytime. Thank you for reading this.
