Thank you so much for your reply to my email.I was afraid that Margaret May was going to be another in the long list of family tragedies my father's family endured, which included the deaths of several children.I can send you details about what I know if you would like them.
Can I ask you for more details about your great-great-grandmother?I have a copy of her birth record from Masardis, Maine, but it may be that she was married before the family moved to New Hampshire in the 1930s (so the oldest brother, George, and my father, second son James, could work in the CCC camps that helped build the Kancamaugus Highway and much of the White Mountain National Forest).Or maybe she moved back to Maine later, or stayed with another family member(s) when the rest moved to NH - I would love to know the story.I am just so happy that she lived to adulthood.
When and where did she marry your great-great grandfather?What were her kids names and birthdates?(And, if unfortunately they are relevant, death dates, please).
Do you know more about her siblings?I am looking for info about her older sister Gladys, who married Wesley Pelkey, stayed in Maine with him when the rest of the family went to New Hampshire, and then (sadly) died in a car accident, leaving two young sons.Do you have any details on her death date?
My uncle George (the first of the siblings) also died in a car accident, but I have not been able to track down info on that, and I don't know if he died in NH Maine, or someplace else.
I won't belabor this, but if you are at all interested in the family after they moved to New Hampshire, I will fill you in to the best of my ability.
Do you have any info about the twins' (Arthur and Edmund) father Fielder and his first wife/their mother Mary McKee?
Again, thanks so much for getting in touch with me - it was only a few years ago that I was able to establish that my grandthaer was part of the family.Most people went by Percy Botting (from Texas)'s geneaology, and my branch of the family is left off completely because he didn't realize that Art, as he was known, had a twin (who was my grandfather).
Twins actually run in my branch of the family to some extent, and Mary McKee was a twin herself - her twin's name was Amelia.
