  • Notes 
    • Dorothy and I were briefly in contact regarding our genealogy. I had found a file she submitted to the Latter Day Saints genealogy project regarding the Massison's. Her mailing address was available with the file so I sent her a letter. One day, in 1999, she called but I was not home. My wife said she sounded very excited to have received the letter from someone else researching the Massison family. She said she would call back, but did not leave a number. A couple years later I sent her another letter, which was responded to in an email by one of her daughters. Dorothy had alzheimer’s and was not able to discuss genealogy. I was however put in contact with her brothers and one of her nieces who has been a great help. Dorothy passed away a few years later. We never talked.
