Hello to all in Elkins. My name is Anastasia Chewning. My father was Rudy Jr. Chewning, and his momma and father were Rudy and Mabel Chewning.
I know this only because of my Aunt Carol (Marilyn), who I only knew for a short time before she passed away. She gave a few pictures she had with all my uncles and aunts and some of the children. I know I have many cousins in your area and it would be nice to let the two children I have to know that, too.
I also heard in a slight mention that I might have a half brother somewhere. I have a picture, and on the back it says, Bill, June, Corliss, Jean, Gramma Chewing and my Aunt Carol. I also have a memorial card for my Gramma Mabel. The clergyman was Rev. Timothy Bias.
I am in California as far north as you can get, a place called Seiad Valley. I was born here to Rudy Jr. and Jannette Reader. Also, my Aunt Carol is buried here at the Fort Goff Cemetery.
I have been wondering and looking off and on since I was 16. I never knew my father, and was wondering if anyone who might be able to enlighten me a bit? Thank you. If you like you can find me on Facebook under Annie Busby or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Seiad Valley, Calif.
