There isn’t too much to say here that I didn’t cover in the blog post.  My dear Granny is alive and (mostly) well.  She is the oldest of five – Alan, Hazel, Valma and Jim.  She married John Scott and they had four children.

The family tree below is pretty much what we knew at the start of this project many years ago.  Of course the Edgecombe side is well known and Granny (Marion) and her brothers and sisters can tell us all about the various aunts and uncles. Many years ago Uncle Jim (James Edgecombe) researched the Edgecombe side back hundreds of years where generations had lived in the village of South Milton, Devon UK.

And so my first inquiries into our family started with – their mother Elsie May Davis.  Who was she and how did she end up in foster care?
