  1. I see your grandmother's name is listed as Florence Bowden Milne. Is Milne her Married name or her maiden name? My maiden name is Bowden so I was wondering if there might be some connection.
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Dana,
      Thanks for visiting my blog. My grandmother's maiden name is, indeed, Bowden. I am excited to hear from anyone who may have a connection. Her father, Robert L. Bowden is a huge brick wall in our tree. My brother, John, and I have worked for years trying to locate parents or siblings for him. I would be very happy to exchange information with you. Please contact me privately at michiganfamilytrails at
      I wrote the email that way to avoid the crawlers who haunt the web and steal emails. I look forward to hearing from you.

  2. I found the name Presley Lunsford on a list of unclaimed civil war medals in West Virginia.The state is looking for the family members to come claim them.

    1. Hi Amanda - Presley Lunsford is definitely one of my ancestors and was killed in the war. Thank you for telling me about this, I will look into it.


I look forward to reading your comments. If you have any connection to the people mentioned in this blog, please let me know. I write about mine and my husband's ancestors and would welcome new information or meeting a new cousin or two. Thanks for visiting and come back soon.
