Hi ruth, and gwen, This is Todd Mellon, Ruth knows me as faye and stever second oldest son. I am taking this time to update the genealogy, and also am looking for information myself on my family history.
My Grandmother Mary Catherine Hendricks. Called by most Cathy, called by her sisters Kitty. Passed away about 3 years back. I believe it was October of 2004, Though I will have to add the exact date later. She Lived much longer than anyone expected though, and we are thankful for the time we had with her. My grandfather Ronald Coleman Hendricks passed away around 1995. They were both very good people. They had many grandchildren, and great grandchildren are sprouting up everywhere now. The grand children are starting with my family ( Faye Hendricks and Steven Mellon's children) Chris (Chris has 1 blood child named Taylor who is 7) 33, Todd 31, Nicole 27 ( Nicole is married to Jason Mclean, and they have one daughter Vivian who is 2 years old), Ryan 22, and Kelly age 18. Terry Hendricks has 1 child named Tyson Hendricks(Tyson has Two children who's names I am sorry to say I do not recall at this moment), I believe he is 26 or 27. Janet has two children, Corey age 27 (Corey is married to Alysa, they have two children, AJ, and A little one who's name I also do not remember) and Melinda age 29 (has two children Both girls, Ashley? and ??I hope ruth can help me with the names. I have been out of Washington state for many years. Finally David Hendricks is Married to Renae, They have two children Taylor age 24? and Dustin 21? To the best of my knowledge neither has any children.
I know that was an eyefull of information, I hope that more comes from others that know more of the history dating back from Catherine Hendricks who's maiden name was Goodfellow. I planned on documenting her life through her own stories with an audio recorder, however she passed away 30 days before the date I had already planned to travel north and begin. I also am trying to find as much possible information on my grandfather Ronald Coleman Hendricks, as I know very little of his family history. I know he was in a foster home that supposedly burnt down destroying his family records, and I believe he lived with his uncle and aunt at some point?
Thanks in advance to anyone who has anything to add to the history I have given, or anyone who can fill me in on some of the further back past.
