Thank you so much for replying. My mother has been in contact with Steve for a little while now, and this email just added to my mother's excitement from being able to contact family from her father's side. Her name is Melissa or Missy and she's doing okay. I am the eldest child of hers (29), I have a brother named Justin(27) and a younger sister named Emily(25). We lived in Whitehall until I was about 13 and moved to the Glens Falls area.
However, I let my mother know that family was in search of her and she was saddened to hear that. She, ever since her father died, has always wanted to be closer to his family. His death changed her, I hear from lots of people that he was an amazing and kind man. I have no doubt that he loved my mother.
As for questions; when you guys came back to Whitehall, did you go to the house where she lived or were you turned away by my grandmother? I've heard from other family members that she had issues with Joe and Blanche, and I wasn't sure if that turned other family off from trying to get contact with my mom? Other than that, my grandmother worked at the hospital for 21 years. Absolutely loved it. She still lives in Queensbury and is turning 78 next year.
Did Dan have other children? Do you know anything or if Teresa still remembers, the names of her parents? (I also can't find anything on their parents, I tried looking at their wedding certificate but that was hard to read) I tried so desperately to find their real names and where they lived...it seems that Sadie isn't her real name (last name wise) and if you have any photos of them....I would LOVE to see them.
Anyways, I am again thankful for you reaching out. I once saw you have a facebook, I wasn't sure if it would be ok for me to add you there? It might be easier to contact you there.
I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas, and I look forward from hearing from you.
