Genealogy

This is awesome! I always wondered how exactly I was related to Jeff’s family and how my family was related to the Lee’s and Phillips families! Thanks Jeff so very much for sharing!

cared for Dr. Raymond B. Squires and Dr. Gretchen Squires

Never, ever will I forget Dr. Gretchen, I still have some of her paintings, I was with her, holding her hand in her final hours. I simply can not forget or put it out of my mind. She suffered so much, only I know, I was with her day and night. Her dignity was taken from her because of everything she was exposed to. In her final days, she was unable to speak, move around but we communicated via eye blinking. The only way for me to find out what she wanted and needed. I ask the question and 2 blinks meant yes, when she kept her eyes closed it meant no. I still miss her very much and I am upset that her photo is not on display among all the other Physicians pictures at Baptist Hospital in Pensacola Fl. She was the first female Pathologist in charge at Baptist, she also treated the poor patients at former University Hospital free of charge. I sometimes wonder what ever happened to the Art Classes (painting) that she started in Pensacola. I guess, I am the only person beside her family that remembers her. I also cared for her husband Dr. Raymond B. Squires and was with him until he past away. Unfortunately, after his second open heart surgery he was never informed that he had a heart attack during surgery and it damaged his heart muscle. He did not know and continued using his gym equipment daily. Nobody told him that he should take it easy and relax, but he continued with his exercise equipment daily. It killed him. His best friend and Physician knew about it, but told him in his final hours. I never forget how upset Dr. Squires was when he was informed. He wanted to change his living Will, it was to late. But he told me a joke just before he past away...he never got to the punch line...I miss both, very much, I am now 77 years old, still thinking about the lovely couple I was able to attend and made their passing somewhat comfortable. Love Elvira

Thanks!

You're referring to the history about Rex & Queenie on the Relativity Research page. To answer your question about the Sotheby auction, the font is very small, but if you open the image in the Rex & Queenie history, you can see the final sale price of $15,000. I don't know when the auction took place. There are reports that a somewhat similar style dog of the type that appears in the Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, VA has sold for three times that amount! shoked

What a terrific job on the website! Congrats. BTW, how much did the Rex and Queenie cousin go for at the recent Sotheby's auction?

Re: Great job!

Lizzie, as a fellow genealogist, thanks! We enjoyed putting it together. It's a work in progress; there's always more to do.

And thanks for not using any emojis!

As you can see in your last post, emojis do work. However, I think your first posting went awry of the emoji limit when you typed 15 emojis! You just lost your E+ 100! tonque

Wendy posted on 09-20-2020 | 8:51 PM:

Well it had plenty of emojis. (Appears all the?‘s were the emojis). Must be a website issuesmile

Jeff Vitter posted on 09-20-2020 | 8:23 PM:

Re: Thanks!

As Tawo would say, you get an E+ 100! But I didn't see any emojis?

Wendy posted on 09-20-2020 | 8:07 PM:

Thanks!

Jeff and Sharon,
So this is what you have beignet ??up to during quarantine! ???Thank you so much for doing this. I am enjoying it immensely. As I mentioned to you, I didn’t even know that Mimi only spoke French as a young child. And I had no idea about the connection with the take ‘er down story. ??But can I be honest and say I am especially loving the Queenie and Rex updates?!? Obviously you have both been working like dogs ???(sorry, couldn’t resist). Wendy (do I get bonus points for the use of emojis???)
