This is the only photo I remember of my Grandfather, Charles S. King

Uncle John's picnic and John Palmer King

My Great Aunt Charlotte, Uncle John, Grandmother Marjorie, Great Aunt Nona and below cousins Kathy King, Helen French, Elizabeth French, and Sanford French IV. I think this picnic was in Royal Oak Michigan in the early 60's.

Frederic Pease Decendants

Frederic Pease Decendants
I just joined the Ontario Genealogical Society list serve. Apparently the Elusive Ann Eliza Stevens (daughter of Henry)may have come from Kent County Ontario. Ann Eliza Stevens married Levi Dolsen and had daughters Lura and Josephine.

Lura married Sam Parsons and Josephine married our Frederic.

I hope to meet up with more of our Canadian Pease cousins too!
