I left off with my father, James Henry Botting, son of Edmund Harry Botting (twin of Arthur Edward Botting) and Charlotte Palmer Botting, who married Rita Jean Twombly in August 1950.
I am not quite as confident about the information for many of my aunts and uncles, but I do have some:
After Dadddy in Edmund and Lotte's family came:
4.Mary R. Botting b. 28 Feb 1919 d. 1963, of lung cancer.m. Walter Budroe (b. 16 Apr 1920, d. 19 Aug 1985). They had 2 daughters: 1. Beverly Budroe m. James Eldridge (daughter: Heidi Eldridge) 2. Jeanette Budroe.
5.Margaret May Botting b. 19 Jul 1920.We assume that Margaret May died in infancy, because she did not move to New Hampshire with the family when they went to Conway, NH in the 1930s, and my mother had never even heard of her (meaning my father had never spoken of her).We found the record of her birth in the Town Records book in Masardis, ME on a visit there in 2007.We were so excited to find the record of her birth we forgot to ask for Botting death records, which probably would have included her complete record.
6.Helen Botting b. 14 Dec 1921, d. 22 Jan 2008; m. Samuel Trefle Bolduc.They had 5 childen, although this is not necessarily the order in which they were born: 1. Joseph w. Bolduc, 2. Rene Bolduc, 3. Rosalee Bolduc, 4. Colleen Bolduc, 5. Wayne Bolduc b. 1960. All of these kids married and all but Wayne had children, but I am not well-informed enough about them to give any particulars.
7.John Warren Botting b. 1923, d. ? (I know he is gone, thats about it: they all are: my Aunt Natalie was the last to go, last year).
8.Rosella Botting b. abt 1925, d. ? of breast cancer.m. -- Smith, possibly Richard.They had children, including a boy named Richard who is about 3 years older than I am.Again, I wish I knew more, and should.
9.Natalie E. Botting b. 3 Apr 1926, d. 21 Oct 2009 of Alzheimer's, m. Fernald Rowell.2 children: 1. Fernald Rowell, Jr., married and had a son, Kimball Alan Rowell (who pre-deceased his grandmother)and two daughters, Dawn and Tracy.2.Pamela S.Rowell, b. 1960. Pam married Harvey Richardson and has two kids, Matthew T. Richardson
(b. abt. 1988) and Heather A. Richardson.
10. Jennie Elizabeth Botting b. abt 1927 d. 2004 of cancer, m. Dwight Nickerson. One daughter Bonnie Ann Nickerson b. 1953.Bonnie is married and probably has kids.
11.Sylvia Botting b. 22 Nov 1931 d. 17 Aug 2004 of Lung cancer (all the Bottings of this generation were heavy smokers), m. James Tyler Twombly (younger brother of Rita Twombly Botting, my mother)b. 5 Mar 1929 on 29 Apr 1950.1 daughter, Charmein Jean Twombly b. 13 Dec 1950, m. George Michael Eldridge 18 Sept 1971, divorced.1 daughter: Jennifer Lynn Eldridge b. 12 Mar 1974, m. James Hurd 18 May 2003 - one son, Brandon Michael Hurd b. 17 Dec 2004.
12.William Botting b. 22 Mar 1933 d. 06 Jun 1937.This poor little kid was struck and killed by a car in Conway,
New Hampshire just a few years after his older sister Gladys Botting Pelkey was killed by a car in Maine.The local paper said "They have been an unfortunate family" and I don't think truer words were ever printed.
13.Edmond Harry Botting, Jr. b. abt 1934 - he is dead, I don't know when he did it, though.I believe he, too, has a daughter somewhere.
14.Jeanette O. Botting b. 02 Apr 1936 d. 12 Feb 1937.This child died in her mother's arms of influenza.
Three days later, her father stepped in front of a train and died.Although the newspaper reports are polite, it is well-known in the family that he committed suicide.
