Good to meeet you Jennifer. We share the same Great Grand father so I think that makes us 2nd cousins. Eldon and Fred were brothers.Eldon married Allma Hixon and together they had two boys, Dale and Jerry.Jerry is my father.He kind of kept up with all the genealogy. Unfortunately I did appreciate it as much as I should have before he passed in '94.
For what little I was exposed to the Rhonemus side of the family growing up I can remember Billy and remember talk of Fred and James. James was the side I did not hear much of but if thoughs serve me correctly I want to say that James & Billy lost their mother at a young age. My Dad has the obituary of Pauline which states she died in a car accident and mentions that James was in the car with her. At the time of the accident it places James at age 8. I think it mentions that they were on their way to Cincinatti to visit Fred who was having some kind of surgery.Billiy was not in the car at the time of the accident.
Kind of rambled on a little but it got kind of interesting when I got out the old pics. We don't have a lot of info on the Rhonemus side of the family so it kind of facinating to talk to someone from that branch.
Currently I reside just outside on Orlando, FL and have to young girls Brooke & Megan.
