                            • Letter to Olivia Revits (1st cousin, once-removed), 4/16/98

Dear Olivia,

Maybe this will help until I can gather more accurate information.

Thanks for the charts. it seems you have added an Ann Kerr 1930 to our family. I'm Anna Catherine 1926. I hated the name and in grade school made the change to Ann. Catherine was the last ( March 12, 1929).

My two brothers and Sis are all dead. I thought I had included that. Daddy's birthdate is 1992- I think Uncle George was 1990.- This seems like nit-picking when you are doing so much work and I supply so little.

The next generation of second-even first cousins don't seem to have much communication. They have all gone their separate and diverse ways. it seems if you go to school in interesting places like California and Chicago you tend to make that your new home.

John's two girls have engineering degrees and work in S.F. and Washington. Sandy Quere's Ali has a degree in archaelogy from U of Chicago. Then Billy's son Bill graduated New College in Florida with Economics degree- Fellowship to U of C at Davis and got PH.D. there. Works in S.F.- Will probably marry out there! Came east to Boston U. for degree in Preservation Law. By the way she did this all on her own. But she loved Chicago and returned.

Barry's son Jeff graduated the Naval Academy and has been a Navy pilot. His sister Coleen married Jeff's friend-also a pilot-so they have been all over.

Mother only had 2 year Normal School education. She taught one year before being married. She has said how grateful she was to the Trenton B of E for giving her a job. Re: your experience with B of E's- While my experience was not so traumatic- I sure understand when the morale in a district hits bottom.

While Mother was able to keep us together she also raised two of Billy's boys, Gary and Bill. Since there was 9 years between my older sister and me, Mother said she thought she should have had at least two more children. Thus Gary and Bill.-

I hadn't expected to write all this. Maybe not readable.

Till later,

               Ann Kerr

P.S. I really do have nice writing paper. Next time I use my good stationery!
