    My mother in law, born Katherine Lueddecke, is the cousin of Marvin. She is well, aged 79, and would welcome contact via me from any of Marvin’s family. Katherine is the daughter of Gilbert Lueddecke’s brother, Albert, and she has lived in England since 1963.

    Dear Cousin Carnelia,
    I just read that Marvin has passed away and I am so sorry for your loss. You and Marvin were together for a long time and it will sure be a time of adjustment and I am hoping you have been doing well since then. You and I have communicated many years ago as I am a direct descendant of Nancy (Ford) Lashley, wife of Cadmus C Lashley, about our Ford relatives. Nancy’s father is Lemuel Ford and Lemuel Ford’s father is Simeon Ford….just to refresh on that.
    I will be thinking of you, Carnelia.
