Hi Molly, My great grandmother was Birdy (Bertha) Nancarrow, so we're related! As a small boy I used to visit Beatrice and Bessie in the small town of Paynesdale (sp?). My grandmother was best of friends with Edgar, (her uncle),although he died before I was born, I believe. I don't think he ever married.
My great grandmother Birdy (Bertha) married Nelson Stratton who was the superintendant of the Adventure Cooper Mine in Greenland, Michigan. They had 8 children.
