Distant Relative

I found this funeral write-up at Grandma's house when we went to visit today.  This relative is distant to me, but I don't think that I have him in my genealogy work.  Time for updates, then.  I love that his nickname was "Baldy."

Good ol' Baldy. We hardly knew him.


GDad said...

Yeah. Baldy. Not only did I hardly know him; I didn't know him at all.

As it turns out, my great-great-grandparents were his grandparents. That is the last common ancestor, so that makes him my, let's see, carry the one... first cousin twice removed.

GDad, well now you've done it. I'm laughing at my desk, which always frightens the interns.

Also, "Skerple". Even the name sounds like a knock-off!
