Re: John Crockett Caesar Tinwald Scotland
Yes! Edith Winifred Moritz Caesar was my grandmothers mother.She had 2 sons and a daughter.
Gordon Mortiz Cesear(1914-1997)
Dorothy Winifred Ceasar(1916-2004)
Grandma Dorothy and her two brothers immigrated to the US in 1923 through Ellis Island in New York,the went direct to Providence RI staying with other Caesar's an uncle.Even though I lived in Rhode Island and Boston, I never found out information on the relatives they stayed with.Dorothy and the brothers and eventually Winnie moved to Los Angeles.She got work in the movie studios and was a Goldwyn girl, (like a Zigfield girl in the movies who sang and danced)She is in other movies and only has a few credits as an extra.She met my grandfather Thorton LeRoy Warren ( from Edmonton Alberta Canada) and were married around 1935.They had two daughters, Paticia Ann (my aunt) and Betty Helen Warren (my mom).
When she was pregnant with Aunt Patty she and my grandpa were extras playing villagers in the Bride of Frankenstein.I have tried contact Hollywood archivists and studios, but not too many records exist from that time.
Dorothy and Thornton or Thorny as he was called divorced in 1945.Dorothy had a personality disorder and was never stable for most of her life.After a few years my grandfather remarried and lovely woman , and she raised the two girls, and they were a great family.Occaisonally Dorothy had contact with the girls, and she lived in Burbank off and on.We all remained in contact throughout her life, and her brothers who took care of her were wonderful.Since the immigrated as young teenagers, they retained their Scottish citizenship and accents.
Fredrick and Gordon were favorite great uncles and we exchanged visits throughout their lives.They both succeeded in business. Fredrick or Arthur as he was called never married and was an accountant, Gordon married was widowed and remarried, I believe he had a daughter.They made their homes in Cambria, California, a beautiful area near Hearst Castle which in on the central coast.That is where Dorothy lived eventually.She was 88.I remember her as the artistic actress type.
So Patricia lives near San Diego, CA in a town called Cardiff by the Sea with her husband Robert Jordan.She was remarried after having two children.The oldest is Sandi Tenerelli(so the Caesare italian connection is of most interest to her) and she has 2 beautiful daughter Jacqueline and Stephanie and 4 cute grandchildren.
My mother Betty married Roger Maire, and I am the oldest and my sister Caron Weeks.I have 6 children with my wife Jennifer and my sister has 2 children.Moved from Boston, MA to Rexburg Idaho, for my wife to return to school.So we are back in the western US after 15 years on the east coast.Please tell me where you are from and yourside of the Caesar family from Winnie's connection forward, and backward.
I am the one that caught the family history bug and have been able to find a number of generations back on all lines except Dorothy.And the Moritz names is especially puzzling.I think they were from Prussia and we are wondering since many Moritz's are Jewish...I have looked on Scotland's People site, but to no avail on these lines :)
Anyways that is probably more than you want to know.But any information on the Caesars line is most appreciated!
