WHAT STARTED MY JOURNEY?


I began my family research after my grandmother passed on and I realized I should write down some of the things she told me about her family. My first bump in the road was with Grandma's Father, Jens Peter Marinus Petersen, because on her birth certificate, he signed her birth certificate as Martin Petersen. Three years after her birth he sent them all back to Denmark, promising to follow, and was never seen again. Since that time I've found that my family has been involved in every patriotic event since the beginning of our country.


One of my great-grandfathers, James Wilson was born on September 14, 1742, in St Andrews, Fife, Scotland. He married Rachel Bird, and they had one daughter together. He then married Hannah Gray, and they had 13 children together. He died on August 28, 1798, in Edenton, North Carolina, at the age of 55. James signed the Constitution and The Declaration of Independence. James Wilson also Sat on the Supreme Court.

My father, Richard served in the Navy in World War II. I married Carolyn Gay Wingstedt on July 15, 1972, in Wheaton, Illinois. We had three daughters and seven grandchildren.


When I was born on December 19, 1948, in Elmhurst, Illinois, my father , Richard, was 21 and my mother, Elinor, was 18. Her father, Raymond Reinke served in the Marines in WWI in the battle of Belleau woods.


Raymond wrote in his letter to the Red Cross his poem was written from the actual history as shown in records from the Actual US History.


At Verdun they went in training.

In mud and slime and snow.

The hell of rats and raining,

Didn't break their spirits though.


It was at Chateau-Thierry,

At the place called Belleau Woods,

That the heinies all grew leary

'cause these guys produced the goods.


They saved fair city of Paris,

With legs, arms, blood and life

So why shouldn't they get credit

Now that the world is through the strife

At Soissons he was a wonder,

At cleaning up the hun

the Dutch couldn't put him under

The gosh darned son of a gun


Then at St. Mihiel too, you'll remember

For we mustn't forget to tell

Of the golden day in September

When we gave them simply hell


Twas over the top at daybreak,

under the light of the canon flare

to take what others couldn't take

which has always been our share.


And for Champagne they were chosen

By the Great Great Marshall Foch

And though most of them were frozen

They sure did fix the dutchman's clock


The French had tried to pierce the line

But couldn't make it stick,

And so it came to be our time on the line

That's why we turned the trick


Then came the drive at Argonne

The last of this Great War

Where we took the center to start on

And finished in the fore


The best fighter, the best soldier

The war has ever seen

And none were ever bolder

Then The United States Marines




I also have another great-grandfather , John Larrabee was born in 1757 in Lynn, Massachusetts. He married Dorothy Dolly Smith on May 25, 1808, in Licking, Ohio. He died on February 6, 1846, in Newark, Ohio, having lived a long life of 89 years, and was buried in Licking, Ohio. John served in the Revolutionary War.


When John P Heck was born in September 1786 in Pennsylvania, his father, Johann, was 32 and his mother, Susannah, was 21. He had one son with Mary Ann Fogel in 1809. He died on July 9, 1852, in Malaga, Ohio, at the age of 65, and was buried there. John Heck served in the civil war.
