Your dad and my late mother were cousins, which makes us, what, second or third cousins, second cousins once removed?I never could get that system down. Jasper was my grandmother's brother.Her name was Minnie, and she died quite young of cancer in, I believe, 1953.My aunt had a family bible that was my grandmother's and had a huge amount of info on the Sheckles side in it, but unfortunately she passed away and I have no idea who ended up with the bible.
Have you found any more information?I am also currently trying to trace this line of my family.I don't even know our great-parent's names. The only names I have are from stories I remember my mother and aunt's telling.Jasper, being one.Hayden, and Miles (which I may be spelling wrong) being two others, but that's all i have, really.
If you have anymore info I would greatly appreciate it.
