See my post in response to request for info about my Aunt Opal Work Fetzer!George Russell Work of "little" Washington, PA alias James Works of Tennessee if MY Paternal Grandpa! I've never even seen a photo of him, and never had opportunity to meet or know him.My DAD, Bob/Robert Russell Work SR, died without knowing his Dad was alive!My Grandpa abandoned his PA family in 1919 & was not reunited with the remaining 2 kids in Ohio until 1972, my Paternal Uncle Floyd Work SR & his sister Mary Eleanor Work Gray.
There is only one known photo of the complete biological Work family with my Paternal grandparents and their kids, except Grandma Work Wilson was pregnant with their youngest son, my Uncle Jimmy Work SR.
Provided much info with the post in response to my Dad's sister Opal Work Fetzer.
Please email me any time with photos and info.When I can get photos and home movies put on DVDs, I can make those available!Have not been able to do that yet, but hope to be able to do so soon.There are many and it will be pretty expensive to get it all done, but I would really like to not only see the home movies again; but have others who can help fill in the blanks for faces & can't match with names any more!We used to go to annual Work Family Reunions in PA and at Lakeview Park Beach in Lorain, OH for years before families drifted apart and lost touch with each other.
Have tried gathering family history for years, but there is a lot going on and it all takes time.Lost touch with Work families in PA and elsewhere years ago after my parents died. My Dad pretty much worked to keep the families together while alive, and then my Mom tried to do that on both sides after my Dad died; but people lost interest over the years and stopped reunions and gatherings of family.Really sad.
