Hi there world...today I arrived. The date was September 6, 1951.
My parents would meet while my gather recuperated in a military hospital following wounds he received while a young Marine in Saipan. They wrote letters and courted cross country. They married in Michigan and soon settled in California. I was their third child.
Dad was separated from his family so what we knew was sketchy.
My mom was the product I of immigrant Portuguese
grandparents. Moms information was sketchy.
the family seemed secretive at times.
Following my mothers death in 1990 I ttook my trip to Michigan. I took a train to feel how she must have
felt many years earlier on her trip to marry my father.
I learned so much I had the desire to investigate my
My mother in law I found out had a story to tell.
She was a third cousin to the Dalton family as wwell as having a great great grandmother who walked the trail of years.
For 10 years I have written their story and though it will never end I will finish a second book and add bits of information I find. I wish I could tell more but there
is so much to tell.
