CALVERT/INGRAM/WINTERS OF TEXAS AND CALIFORNIAUpdated March 17, 2007
|Researching the CALVERT/INGRAM/WINTERS connection.DOROTHY CHRYSTAL CALVERT married my Grandfather GEORGE CLIFTON WINTERS on JULY 7, 1925 in Los Angeles, California. My father CLIFTON CHARLES WINTERS was born OCTOBER 3, 1926.They resided in LONG BEACH,CALIFORNIA.DOROTHY left her husband and son, sometime after the big EARTHQUAKE of 1933, and was never heard from again by the WINTERS FAMILY.|
After 12 years of research I have finally found my missing Grandmother right in my own back yard.Dorothy Calvert had remarried.John Alexander Ingram was her new husband and they moved to Canada when he went AWOL from the US Military.He rejoined the Canadian Military and he and Dorothy had dual citizenship.They lived between Ohio and Vancouver Island.He had a career at sea and Dorothy never had any other children.After John died in the early 1960's, Dorothy moved to Henderson, Nevada where she lived until she died in 1992. I moved here in 1989 and my father (her son) had lived here since the early 1970's.
When Dorothy passed away her possession of pictures were sent to Canada, and then to her older brother Clyde's daughter in Texas.I am looking for these pictures and his daughter.
The CALVERT family was found on the 1920 CENSUS in DALLAS,TEXAS.JAMES A. CALVERT was her father born around 1879 in LOUISIANA.NELLIE ADAMS was her mother born around 1885 in BROWNWOOD,TEXAS.DOROTHY had 3 brothers, CLYDE born in TEXAS around 1909, JAMES A. JR. born in ARKANSAS 1912 and CHARLES CLAIRE born 27 May, 1912 in Mena, ARKANSAS.The WINTERS side of the family is pretty complete, but THE CALVERTS and the INGRAMS are my recent research.The only photograph of DOROTHY can be accessed below.
