My g-grandmother had a daughter, Rose, (Shave-117) out of wedlock several years before she married my g-grandfather. My English g-grandparents emigrated to Texas in 1874. The couple's three children contracted scarlet fever the previous June, and two had died. Rose survived but was still too ill to travel when the time came to leave, so she was left in the care of her maternal grandparents until such time as she could be sent for. Unfortunately my g-grandfather had an accident which left him disabled soon after arriving, and Rose grew up in the care of her grandparents.
She and my grandfather exchanged correspondence until her death in 1928, but no one thought to keep the letters! So we were left not knowing where she lived, or who she married. My fellow family researchers, who have died one-by-one, have actively searched for this lost daughter for almost 50 years and this past month, with the help of an English cousin I finally found her!
I gathered up all the records and contacted her g-grandchildren. They want *nothing* to do with us, and in fact deny that their long-dead granny is the same Rose.
So after all that palaver, what do I include on her profile? I've not come across this situation before.
