Bilbo from Texas seeking info
Hello and hope all is well.
I am a Bilbo but unfortunately I have no contact and ties with the family members from my father's side. The reason for this is that my parents divorced while I was quite young and my contact with the Bilbo family was very little, almost non existant and also due to the fact that my mother is Greek and all my ties and communication was always with my mother's family in Greece.I also now live in Greece but my daughter lives in the US.The reason I decided to look into the Bilbo family a little is because of the fact that I am worried of my daughter not having enough contact with family members, especially since she is in the US. Worthy to also note is the fact that my daughter's father was adopted and we have no info about her father's family. So, it is all left up to me and my side of the family.
Some background info of my Bilbo family, little that I know.
My grandfather was Sidney Elbert Bilbo, born in 1912 and deceased in 1983, and was married to Alta Mae Kinard (she is also deceased).They had 2 children, one being my father, Elbert Wayne Bilbo who was born in Dec. 1945, and another being my aunt, Carolyn Lee Bilbo who was born in July 1941.From what I know, they were always in Texas and my father and aunt were born in Vidor, Texas and this is where they have continued living up to today, between Vidor and Beaumont, Texas. My aunt is also married and has 2 children (not sure about how may grandchildren she has). My father married 2 times but only has one child, me, and up to now, I have had only one child, Alexandra Caitlin Tauber. My father's first wife was my mother, Vasiliki Papadaki, and his second I don't think is worthy to note since they had no children together. One thing that is worthy to note is how my parents met. My father was enlisted in the US Air Force for some years, when he was young, and travelled some with the Air Force. One of his stations was in Athens, Greece, and that is when he met my mother. That was approximately in 1968-1969 and they married in 1969. When he was restationed, my mother went with him and in Oct. 1970, I was born in Biloxi, Mississippi, during the time that they were stationed there for some months. We travelled some with my father, the first 2 years of my life, but there after, they seperated and then later divorced. My mother then took me and we moved to Greece, where we resided till my age of 9-10, when then she remarried, again to an American, and we moved back to the states. Our last place of residence was in Florida and this is where my mother remains and so does my daughter. Palm Harbor, Florida, to be a little more specific.
Anyway, I think I have noted as much as I think is necessary or at least as much as I know.
Anyone who has some background info or are know are relatives or have info in regards to our relatives, living or deceased, I would greatly appreciate it you send me a note.
Thanks and kind regards,
P.S. My home is open to any Bilbo family member that may ever be interested in visiting Greece.
