Shell Knob, Missouri


April 2006


It was really a stroke of luck that we got addresses for Gerry's cousins.  Phil's Dad, Reynold, was Gerry's mother's brother.  Both Phil and his brother Ron are retired postal workers.  Someone at the Post Office looked up Ron's forwarding address (even though it had long since expired) and sent our letter from Illinois to Missouri.  We found a Corps of Engineer park just 4 miles from where Phil lives.  And they live not to far from Branson!  They took us over to meet Phil's nephew, Don and his wife Stella.  We added more family photos to our growing collection as well as lots of genealogical data.
