Re: Frederick C. Havens - NY
My father, born 7/22/1905 is Frederick C Havens.His mother's name was Edith (I believe perhaps maiden name was Johnson). I don't think my grandmother & grandfather were ever married, and all I know about my father as a child was that he was raised in nothern PA or southern tier NY.
He was raised by the Gridley family and graduated from Mansfield State College with a degree in music.
Any possibility he was related to your Great grandfather?
My elder brother was named Charles Arthur Havens and my father had someone he called "cousin" named Frederick Johnson who ran a diner in Corning NY.I have been trying to find members of my father's family for ages with no success.Hoping to hear from you.
