Around Newcastle, PA born in or around this area! Effie" she is my great Grandmother)...my dad's mother "Clara's "- mom. She had 8 children with with Paul Hogue. Then, when she was 45 yrs. (She had, had it with Paul and his Shenagans) she made a child with another person. (That, person remains unknown(?). If you check the 1940's Slippery Rock, Lawrence County PA Census under Houge...you will see that Clara's listed as my great GrandPa's wife. She clearly was NOT! She and her sister's told me in 1991/1992 That, they had a sister GIVEN UP "To a neighbor" It sounded like "Effie" had an at home birth(?) Maybe, never recorded(?). I'm thinking that; the Helper who helped make this baby.. may Have been "Married" "Younger" or even be "Related" to Effie in one way. Anyway, when the baby came "He Bailed!" Effie came back..home 1940's..to Paul and her brood.. But, she also brought a little baby girl with her. This, was clearly unacceptable to Paul. And, I was told that "HE" demanded she get rid of "THAT" baby! It was done. 12 yrs.. Later, Paul is Dead. And, not long after they... "most all" the family.. move to So. CA. My Grandmother Clara and her sister's had cried in front of me; saying "We wished we knew what.. had become of her." I asked "Do you know who your mom was with?" I think they knew but, was afraid to say. I asked "Well, where were they staying..across town?" They, looked at each other and nodded "yes." I said way back then; I'd promise to help find her..Their little Sister..my great Aunt. Recently, my grand mother "Clara's Son Ed" ..Ed's Son, Eric took a DNA test.. my cousin Eric was contacted by a women named "Caroline Kennedy" Just, try looking her up! Good Luck! Anyway, I forgot to tell you that; two sister's my Grandmum- Clara and her sister Mary..They, married two brothers George..(My Grandfather) and his brother John.. my Great Uncle. They made double cousins.. The only two (FULL) and a (1)1/2 (descendants alive today- 4.26.2022) from them are: my (Uncle Ed, from my Grandma "Clara and George-My Grandfather) & George with Mrs. Molly Mae..my 1/2 "Aunt Roxan" and Great Aunt Mary and Great Uncle John's daughter..my cousin, "Geraldine." The ladies Do not wish to at this time to be swabbed and have their DNA checked to see who is more closely related to this woman "Caroline Kennedy" the only one that.. has done the DNA is my Uncle Ed. But, how are we to know if this child has come from "Effie" I believe that; there is a lot of the same genes going on here...or so, it seems like.(?) They, are saying that it must be My Uncle John's. I JUST WANT TO FIND OUT "WHO" DOES CAROLINE KENNEDY BELONG TO? COULD IT BE EFFIE?..WHAT KIND OF TRIANGLE DO WE HAVE HERE? I NEED SOMEONE WHO KNOWS ABOUT DNA TO HELP SOLVE THIS MYSTERY(?). Looking for Help and a way to keep a promise, Sincerely, `~* Ms. A. COLQUHOUN (COL-HOON)
PS. My Grandmother- Clara's father.. told her NOT to tell the truth when; the census person came around.. Because, At this time: Father's were not allowed to care for their children ALONE!. And, that they.. would ALL be taken away (by the state) and put into an orphanage! So, she did what he said to do.. be the mother.
