    Finding my "roots"

    I am searching for my Grandfather, Augusta
    S. Morris. He was a miner that moved to
    the Trinidad area, not sure of date. He
    married my Grandmother, Bertha A. Wallace
    in 1917 in Trinidad. She divorced him
    in 1920's. I also found that Bertha's
    parents John and Annie Laurie Wallace had
    a boarding house where Augusta may have roomed
    in Trinidad. I was told the house in
    Trinidad was 2 or 3 stories white board house with no trees or no landscaping around it.I do know that Augusta was somehow involved
    to get miners to join the union. I do hope someone can help fill
    in some blanks.
    Thanks so much,
    Sheri

    :DHi Sheri,
    Fancy meeting you here. I just found this site and started to post a query for him as well. It goes to show how great minds think alike. :)I'm still searching Ancestry.com and may have something on the census. I'll let you know if I find anything.
    Catch you later,
    Cari

    a car dealership many moons ago. He wondered if this

    Hey Sheri,
    Well now, that sounds interesting. Do you remember anyone talking about a dealership from the past? That would be interesting to find out. I did send an email about boarding houses to see if there was a list with owners names and addresses. Maybe that will give us some help.
    Cari [:p]
