Hi Joshua Looks like you have the bug!I too love this mad hobby!I work on both my side of the family and my husbands.Actually his is more interesting.I am happy that you will be able to fill in some of my blanks on your family.Like birth and death dates, marriage dates, places etc.
Regarding Joseph Eugene Routt, Jr.I have an article from a newspaper dated March 14 (year unknown) regarding the body of Captain Joe Routt who was being returned to Chapel Hill for reburial.Congressman Lyndon Johnson sent a telegram advising the family..He died 10 December 1944 in Germany - cause - "Killed in action WW2".I don't have a wife for him but list 2 daughters Marilyn born ca 1938 and Rosana born CA 1939.No more info on them.
I have looked a little in my file - I seem to remember being told that Milton Lee committed suicide.
Joshua, you may e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.I will be away for about a week.Our only little granddaughter was killed on a tractor accident on 6th October and we are going to the lake house for about a week and try to re-group our thoughts.We still have 4 beautiful grandsons, but I will miss our beautiful little 7 year old Lucy.She was an organ donor and has saved a bunch of people.That has helped us in our mourning process - I feel we have a bunch of little Lucys out there.
Don't give up on me I will get you more info.Let me know what you want. Jody
