Happy 122nd Birthday, Cousin Pearl!

My first cousin, twice removed, Pearl Geneva Churches, was born on 21 February 1899, to George W. and Ora Lee Churches. Pearl was my grandfather’s first cousin. At the age of 22, on 4 August 1921, Pearl married Ortheldo Miller, the son of Henry A. and Mary E. Miller. The couple had one child, Mary Ellen (1926).

Besides having an unusual name, Pearl, and being the daughter of one of my favorite named aunts – who doesn’t chuckle when the think of Ora Lee? – Pearl and my grandfather were in constant post card communications. Although 6 years younger than Grandpa, the family was very close and would send off a post card to cover anything that their 21st Century counterparts would use a text. The first two years of this blog contains the entire collection of post cards my grandfather saved.

Pearl passed away on 8 August 1959.

About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
