Hi all of you: I guess we're relatives! You just never know. I was puttering about with a trial database here at our library and found Ancestry.com on it. I've been trying to track down some information about my Gram and Gramp's background -- they are, or I should say were, Sabon Roosevelt Peabody and Elizabeth ('Bessie') Gladys Enman, because I want to build a family tree for my two little squirts. I was, to put it mildly, THRILLED to find the names of Gram's mother and father…I new that Great-Grampie was George, but there are a million George Enmans out there. I found that some of the information on 'Grammie Bessie' is a bit sparse, as well as their kids. Here's where I can supply a bit of information if anyone cares to fill it in. (I don't have an account…yet) Gram was born -- according to her own reports, although I have no physical proof of it -- in Summerside, Prince, Prince Edward Island, Canada. The last time I was there I intended to see if I could track down something real, but didn't have a chance. She died in May 1989 in Midlothian, Virginia, where she was living with my Aunt Marion. Aunt Marion, who I believe was the middle child of the three 'Living Peabody' kids listed, is Marion Peabody McBean. Alive, well, and enjoying a whole slew of grandchildren. Her middle name escapes me at the moment. I have her email address at home if you're interested. My mother, Helen Jean Peabody LaVoie, died May 12, 1993 in Skowhegan, Maine. (My eldest daughter Elizabeth, born 5/13/95, is Elizabeth Jean, named both for her Great-Grammie and her Grammie. Oh yes, and the E in my name is Elizabeth. 'Bessie' has a long shadow. I believe some of Uncle Bud's kids were named for her too.) Uncle Bud -- whose real name I believe was George Sabon, died within two weeks of Gram, in May 1989. We actually had a joint memorial service for the two of them in Rumford, Maine at our old church a few weeks later. :-) What a treat to find some of this information!! Thanks! And if any of you wants to pass along some hints as to how I might get involved in this more, I'd love to have them! Kay Kay E. Lowell, M.L.S.
