I am the granddaughter of Wesley (WW11 veteran dee 1980)and Sylvia Ahrens (dee 1995). Wesley originated from Michigan, I believe, and has a brother Gene who still resides there. Wesley and Sylvia departed the U.S. in the 1940's and moved to Portugal Cove, Newfoundland and then Marystown, Newfoundland where Wesley worked at the Marystown Shipyard. They had 12 children in all, close on 50 grandchildren, and 2 great-grand children. If anyone knows the family of which I speak of, please contact me. I would love to hear from you.
