Hi, Terry, and welcome to the WikiTree community. Can you give us some places associated with the above folks? Even better, have you created profiles for them yet. You can edit your question to include the profile address. Many thanks, and happy hunting!

Pip is asking some good questions here, but maybe we should wait for an answer that helps Terry to take another step back before awarding a best answer star.

Do any of these names look familiar?  John might be the son of one of the older children.

Also Minnie's birth date needs to be corrected, probably 1905 instead of 1915.  A typing error easy to fix, we all make them.  Hang in there Terry, it will all work out in the end!!
