We received an update to the Bernard-Rogers Family.
For those helping me locate Nellie deLeuze last month, an update on my search.
Using the Obits several of you were kind enough to send me I located Nellies Daughter in Fremont CA and contacted her on the phone. She was very excited to hear of my search for of GA (1861-1938) and his unknown daughter supposed to be living in CA during the 1920-1930's. was this lady's Great Grand Father that she never met and knew little about.
Charles's daughter was named Lucy and was born in Ohio in 1883 of a marriage between Charles and a Mary Anne lasting 1880-1891. Charles left the family
after the 1891 divorce and changed his name and never saw any of them afterwards. How sad! Lucy married later in life and moved to Berkley CA
with her husband, Mary Anne moved with them. Lucy had three children. Her Mother, Mary Anne, passed on in 1951 followed by Lucy in 1974. Lucy's
daughter, Nellie ( 1908-2004) married her grade school chum's brother and had three children of wheich two are still alive.
Nellie daughter and I have exchanged information, and pictures from the early 1900's, and have begun a nice friendship. We are currently in contact with Court Clerks in Ohio to obtain additional information of both families.
I will end by telling you that Charles corresponded for years with Lucy, exchanging photo's etc, as did my Great Aunt who was Charles's second wife.
This corrspondance continued after Charles's death in 1938 with my Great Aunt writing to Lucy. Lucy was a legatee in Great Aunt's Will in 1968.
As an afterthought: The lady from has sent me photo's of my Great Aunt posing for publicity purposes as the leading lady of Robert Campbells
Stock Company in Chicago for the 1903 season. Also a photo as Leading Lady of the Chicago Petersons Stock Company for 1896.
Old Hal......His thanks to all of you taking the trouble to help solve this
