Dad had four siblings and two step-siblings! Mary Cook married Grover Clifton Liles but he passed soon after they were married...around 1912. She remarried Charles Essig around 1914 and they had two children, Helen and _____.
From dad's side of the family we have:
From Sister Opal Robinson
One cousin, Kathryn Robinson (Deceased). "Kat" never married and lived in Paramount until she finally moved to a senior care facility. After her parents passed, Sue and I took care of her until she needed to move to get full time care. She passed at 93 of a heart attack and was never sick in her life.
She has a site on our website devoted to her.

From Sister Edith Parchman
One Cousin, Claudia O'Toole. Claudia lives in Paramount just a few miles away but we seldom see each other as she has a large family and is quite bust with church activities. It generally takes a death or some other major event for us to get together.
She just turned 75 in 2019 and is six months older than me. She has four son's and a passel of grand and great granschildren.
From Alma Mall
Aunt Alma and Normal Mall had three children...three cousins. Aunt Alma began having kids well ahead of her siblings (Paul, Edith, and Opal) so were were never that close as they were fifteen years older than me. While we got together on family occasions, they were adults when we were still running around as kids.
Norman and Alma would come out to visit and Mom and Dad would take them around town. This was our visit to CBS Television City just behind the Farmer's Market in Los Angeles.
They loved deep sea fishing so Dad would take us all our on a half-day boat...leave the harbor at 2:00 am and return home about 6:00 PM. These tuna were great and there was am icehouse right down the street from Comey Avenue.
Gene Norml Mall (1927-2013), Jo Ann (Mall) Lancaster (1932-2013), and James Ray Mall 1935-2013). All three are deceased and passed one month apart in 2013 (March, April, and May).
Gene's wife, Jen, remains with us and lives with her daughter in Azusa California. Joanne's husband Bill is also with us and lives in Orange County.
From The Lewis Side We Have Several Cousins:
There are many missing cousins which we will likely never know. Because of distances and other events, I only knew the cousins from Aunt Kay and Uncle Chuck.
From Sister Mary Katherine Hale
Kaye and her husband Raymond Hale (deceased) had Tom (Deceased) and Gayla.
Tom passed in 2017 of heart failure as the later years of his life were pretty sad and he ate himself to death after his divorce and later the loss of his adopted faughter, Megan.
We lost Tommy on September 27th at 3:00 PM
Gayla still lives in Stockton and takes care of her mother who is turning 97 in 2019.
