My birth father (Roy Eldon Traister) was the son of Theodore Rutherford Traister & Mattie Adeline (Durham) Traister. As I was adopted out in 1941, I don't have too much info. I have learned that Roy was born in Doster, MI in 1913 & he had an older brother Franklin born about 1908. I apparently lived with Ted & Mattie at the time of my adoption in 1941 in Battle Creek, MI. Also My birth mother was a Durham. I don't know if there was any blood connection between My mother & my paternal grandmother. My mother's maiden name was Evelyn Durham& she married Roy Traister sometime in the late 1920's & early 1930's. Evelyn also had a sister Louisa Durham who taught school in Lakeview, Mi near Battle Creek. She was born in 1900 & married Lloyd C Mohr. He was Superintendent of So Haven Schools at one time & the So Haven school is named for him.
