Re: [nscumber] Obit: HICKS, Primrose [née HARVEY_ ]

David,

I have a note in my file that Mae Porter was Lucy Wasson's daughter, fathered by Norman Tipping and adopted by Fred Porter. Lucy had the child when she lived at home in New Yarmouth and Norman Tipping worked in the lumber woods in Eatonville. This was information given to me by my father who also worked in Eatonville at the same time as did Norman Tipping.
Hope that helps a little !

Bruce

Eric:

I¹m of the same opinion with Lucy.

Sooner or later, registered birth records will become available.
