Lost Boy Found
3/15/2008 4:40:25 PM
Today I found my lost brother. He was my father's son from my father's first marriage and he died fifteen years before I was born. He was only nine when he died and my dad rarely spoke of him. It was my mom who told me what little I ever knew of him. His name was James and he was walking along the side of the road the morning of March 4, 1935, heading for his school bus stop. A car clipped him and my dad ran down the road to carry him back to the house. Mom said he died in my dad's arms. Three years later, my dad and James' mother were divorced. Yesterday, I was contacted by a great niece that I never knew I had and it turns out that she and I are both doing some family geneology on my dad's side of the family. Her grandma and James were brother and sister. Her grandma and I are half sisters. Anyway, she knew where James Marshall Bell was buried and she sent me a link to the cemetery records in the town of McGraw Village, New York. This has been an eventful weekend for me. I found a long lost brother and a niece I never knew I had. Isn't the internet wonderful!
