Thanks for the posting tips. My grandfather, Gerald William Bartle Sr. was born on 28 Dec 1932, and my dad, Gerald William Bartle Jr. was born in March, 1955. He remembers his grandfather's name (Gerald William Bartle Sr.'s father) as Victor Bartle (no birth or death dates) I know that I have an uncle and two aunts, Gerald William Bartle Jr's siblings -- Robert Bartle (not sure if younger or older), Pauline Bartle (younger), and I don't know the other sister's name (Mary perhaps... there was a falling out with her and my grandfather, Gerald Sr. and as kids we never really saw her) I know that my father typically goes by the name Jerry and didn't identify himself as a Jr. after my grandfather's death sometime in the 90s. I believe my grandfather may have also gone by the name Jerry and I know he worked for the New England Gas Company in Fall River, Massachusetts and that he was in the US Navy (submariner) and he's buried in a veterens cemetary in Cape Cod (Bourne, Massachusetts I believe) (unfortunately, my father is very ill and can't give me more than this to go on... ...and my own knowledge of my family is very lacking as we tended to be a very individualist family)
As far as wives, I remember that my grandmother's name (Gerald Sr.'s wife) was Doris (I'm pretty sure her maiden name was Mandeville) Bartle. My uncle Robert was married (now divorced) to a woman named Lori (don't know maiden name) and my aunt Pauline was married to a man named Eric Rouselle (again, sorry but no dates)
If you need anything else, let me know and I'll try to get what I can in my dad's... better moments.
And my deep personal thank you for anything that you can help me with.
