Thanks for your caring response, John. I share this account with my wife, Judy Persen. I am Richard Donald James Persen. My mother was Eileen Mary Catherine Johnson Persen.

Our research indicated that my grandfather was Alfred George William Johnson. He dropped the "Alfred" and only used George William Johnson after his arrival in the U.S.A. in December, 1913. (Alfred) George and his wife, Letitia have no record of marriage in the U.K., however Letitia used the name Letitia Lily Mitchell while in the U.S., but our research indicated that her real name was Letitia Ann Doyle. Both of them did not have birth certificates when they arrived as passenger tourists on the Red Star Line. They decided to stay. The actual date of birth was (presumably) 5-May-1881. However, I cannot get an exact match on that date. Christian names of (Alfred) George's parents were: George William Johnson (father), and Emma Tennyck Johnson (mother). We are not certain of the spelling of Emma's maiden name (TenEyck/Tennick). There was a lot of fibbing going on, and that makes all this quite interesting. My uncle George Alfred Patrick Johnson is still alive, but has emphysema is not well. Any help you can give me on this would be tremendously appreciated. I have a complete research summary in PDF format. I can send you that if you would like. It has pictures of (Alfred) George and Letitia.

Sincerely,
Rich Persen
