Seeking a cousin: Joan Margaret Wasson, born 1939, NY
I am trying to find my full cousin, Joan Margaret Wasson, born in March 1939 in New York, or her descendents.
Joan’s parents were James Wasson (or Wason) and Annie Campbell.
Annie was born in Scotland in 1910, and James was born in Dunfanaghy, County Donegal, Ireland in 1907.
James was the eldest of a family of 6.He left Ireland in the late 1920’s, when my dad (the youngest of the family) was 2 years old.My father is the only member of the family still living.
James’s parents were Francis Wasson and Margaret Wilson, both from Dunfanaghy.
My family lost contact with James after his mother (my grandmother) died in the late 1950’s.
I have tried to trace James and Annie, and found the following information:
? When James first arrived in America, he lived with his aunt, named McFarlane.
? When Annie first arrived in America, she lived with her aunt, named Snell.
? They lived in the Bronx area at least until the 1950’s
? They had one son who died as an infant in the 1930’s
? They had one daughter, Joan Margaret Wasson
? I believe both James and Annie died in the early 1990’s.
I believe Joan had a family around 1960.
However, I do not know what her married name was, nor where she might be living now.
