Thomas Cowling Grenfell (1905 – 1983)

Thomas Cowling Grenfell, Stephen's 1st cousin 2x removedThis is one photo that really made me sit back when I first saw it!  I sent a copy to Elinor and to Iain and they both took a double take … it could have been an old photo of me!

In fact it is my 1st cousin twice removed who, at the age of 7 years,  moved from Cornwall to the United States with his family.  Living in Ohio and then moving to Connecticut where he married his wife, Bernice Lorraine Cook, and lived there until he passed away in 1983.

I don’t have too much information about the family just yet, however I hope to change that soon.  After many hours following leads around the internet I have managed to make contact with one of his children, Gary Grenfell and we are now in touch by e-mail.

Gary and his wife Linda are also interested in Family History and I know we will be comparing notes to fill in some gaps during the next few weeks and months!
