  • Don’t wait until it’s too late to gather info on family

    By the time I was born way back in 1962, both of my dad’s parents had already passed away. My grandmother, Lovina Amanda (Hackett) Codling, died in 1938 in her mid-50s. My grandfather, Charles Cicero Codling, died in 1952 in his mid-70s.

    My mother’s mother, Ola Ethel (Reed) Wherry, died days after my first birthday. We were living in a suburb of Washington, D.C., at that time. I really have no idea if she was ever well enough to travel down to see me or if our family went up to see them after I was born.
