The other side

I am giving Thomas Jefferson Bartow (sr) a break.

I have exausted every think I can find on the internet, as far as I can tell. Until I am able to get to the Family Center or a library, I am taking a break. From him at least.

I have started on Mimi's family.

I have a lot of photo's of her immediate family.

Her parents were John and Ethel Ivalene Boyd Wilhelm.

The photo's I have are all written on the back as to who they are and the dates. I am very, very, happy about that. My photo's that I have of my family are all just shoved in a box.

I really, really need to fix that. Hopefully someday my great, great grandchildren would be happy if I dated and identified them. It's kinda cute everytime Grandmother Ethel is on the pictures she has written her entire name out, along with everybody else's entire name.

There is some "cousins" that have Ethel Ivalene Boyd Wilhelm's family thru her father's mother back to 1532 to a Thomas Wise in England. I have not verified any of this, but someone has gone to a lot of work.

I have contacted a "cousin" from Her great grandmother is the sister of Grandmother Ethel's father, Amor Boyd. She is emailing me some things. Awesome!!

I have not located John Wilhelm's family. I just wrote Uncle Jack, hopefully he knows something.

I haven't blogged for awhile because I haven't learned anything new about TJ (sr) for awhile.

I still have been searching but nothing new.

I read the novel about Theodosia but there was not really anything in there about the Bartows.

  1. Ethel Ivalene Boyd Wilhelm was my beloved grandmother through my mom, Mable Maru Wilhelm Osgood. You are in luck on the Osgood side since a Yale anthropologist Osgood (Cornelius) has a geneology goind way back. I would love to know what has happened to my mother's sisters and brothers, Jack and Mary, and their kids. I used to play with these cousins.
