Harry, I was sorry to hear about your mother. You don't know me, but I think your father and my father, John Adams were cousins, so that makes us 2nd cousins I believe. I met your father and mother when my Aunt Dorothy Brose, my dad's sister died about 25 years ago. My grandmother Victoria Adams and your dad's mother were sisters. I don't remember her name. My name is Patricia Adams Powell, or 937-439-2501. I am not on facebook, but if you wish to contact me maybe I could get some of the family history on our fathers' side from you.. I only met your mother that one time, but I remember some stories about Penny's and a few of your father's stories--especially the correct use of the King's English. Additionally, both of my parents (mother-Marjorie Adams) are buried at Dayton Memorial Park..
