The Saga Continues With New Information
I have been on the hunt for answers for years. Just a few days ago, I got new information. I decided to call the cemetery where my grandmother's headstone is to see if they had any information- JACKPOT. One thing I learned is that my aunt arranged for my grandmother's headstone along with several others. I was blown away by this. My dad always made her out to be such a loser.
I was able to get several documents from one of the workers at the cemetery. Normally, I would not share this type of information publicly- but since it is public information available to anyone I want to include them in this post. Typically, I don't use photos that I haven't taken myself but there are exceptions and this is one of them.
I wanted to share them because I hope doing so will help to find more answers. Maybe someone will see my blog & recognize a name & contact me with more information. I am totally excited about this new information, especially since it answered one big question I had. I have some information about my grandmother's mother but was confused about one of the last names I had come across. A note that my aunt had written cleared that right up. More on that later.
I also learned from this new information that my great-aunt's name was actually spelled Ilau and not Ila. She died in Glenn County in California in 1979. This is around the time my dad took me to Bud's house, so I am wondering if that was the reason for the trip. I will keep on the search for answers. Be sure to come back each Monday to see what I have found.
