  1. I am a distant cousin from New Jersey – Traua side.
    My mother (Margaret) was my Aunt Laura’s niece.
    Many a vacation was spent in upstate NY – briefly
    stopping by all of the cousins’ homes.
    Finally have the time to do a little research into
    what has happened to that side of the family.
    I am so very sorry to learn of Winona’s passing – she
    was always so nice to us – and to me – whenever
    we would stop by for a visit. Rest in Peace Winona –
    I have good memories of you!
