Thomas Gerald Winter's Genealogical PapersMy father left behind an old enveloped stuffed with genealogical papers that his grandfather, Thomas Gerald Winter, transported with him in the late 1800s from England. One is dated 1693. The old Bible records and other ancient documents prove Thomas Gerald Winter's line of descent from Professor William Douglas (c.1600-1666) of Aberdeen, Scotland. I wanted my relatives to have a hi-resolution copy before the next fire hits Northern California. This file is rather large, be patient while it downloads. The document is meant to be printed double-sided and bound, hence a few blank 'facing' pages. The line traces from Thomas Gerald Winter to Mayor Thomas Winter to Peggy Anne Moore to Sarah Nowell to Anne Dunlop to Alexander Dunlop to Elizabeth Douglas to William Douglas.

The Man in the Purple Cow House. In February 2018, the Sir Georges Roberts Memorial Library on Harbour Island in the Bahamas found that book online. They wrote to me and asked for images of Snake for a “retrospective of residents who were colorful characters.” Snake lived on the island with his fourth wife, Dorothy, from 1950 to 1965. They owned a capucian monkey, 2 simion monkeys, a brace of turkeys and 1700 chickens. The two-block ranch is remembered on the island as the "chick farm." The house still stands. I gathered what paraphernalia I had about my grandfather into this booklet. The photo to the left shows him just a few months before he accidently drove his pick-up off the end of the pier and drowned. (The low-rez pdf is 18 pages, 6.5MB)
