    Hi Mrs. Kelly, I just wanted to say thank you for taking time to publish this; I am Rosalia’s great-granddaughter and it means so much to me to be able to read a bit about her life. Its amazing how times have changed, people have passed on, and new generations have been created, but having this helps make me feel still connected to my great-grandmother and that means a lot to me, its hard without her here anymore but it is amazing to read about her life. I shall let you go now I just wanted to say thank you for doing this!!

    I would like to thank you for putting this site together. On a “fluke” I searched for our surname HEYL. Low and behold you had info on George Heyl! My husbands grandpa Walter, this was his brother. We had heard he was killed in a car accident. This information “makes more sense” and we are so blessed to have this in our family history also. By the way.. Those Heyl boys married some Gregson Girls! More family history in the most unlikely place. Thanks again from our family to yours…

      I am so happy to read this, Megan and Jim! This is one of the reasons for having this little blog. Besides sharing my grandmother’s words with my family members I also wanted to share it (hopefully) with the family members of those that she mentions.
      Your kind comments mean the world to me and are greatly appreciated!
      Please let me know if you have any questions or further comments.

    Hi Angie, My name is Mary Brand, I am Kurts wife. Kurt is the Grson of Bertille’s brother Henry. This is so cool! I’m just getting started reading it, I have two daughters, 11 & 12, I know they will be very interested also. Thank you so much for sharing! If it is OK with you, I would like to print it & add it to my ‘Brand’ family geneology.
    Thank you, Kurt & Mary Brand & Family

  • Joseph E. Gregson

    Hi Angie, Thank You for putting this together. The Joe Gregson that your grandmother refers to is my great grandfather, whom I am named after. Lester Gregson that she refers to is my grandfather. It is a lot of fun reading about that period in time when you know some of the people. I am looking forward to see what was going on the day my dad Virgil was born. Many of the names mentioned I do not know, but as they get married and have children I know who they are because I know their children. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate what you and Tillie have preserved for all to read. Thanks again, Joe Gregson
