Memorial Day 2013 - In Honor of Lt. Patrick Fred Kidgell, 29, Oak Harbor, Medical Crewman.

Lt. Partick F. Kidgell, 29, Oak Harbor, medical crewman. 
     Patrick Fred Kidgell is a third cousin of mine that I have never met.  I know about Patrick because of a cousin Gary, that found me through this genealogy blog; which I am very grateful.  Gary (his birth date is exactly one month before mine.) is also my third cousin, but he is a first cousin to Patrick; whom I wish to honor this Memorial Day; Patrick Fred Kidgell  gave his life in the line of duty in a Navy rescue helicopter crash in the rugged North Cascade Mountains on
12 September 1980.
Gary sent me information of Patrick's death a couple of years ago. If you click on the Find a Grave link below it will give more details of his death.

May you rest in peace Patrick Fred Kidgell and never be forgotten.

Mary Hepworth ask for $20,000 for Death of Her Husband (Thomas Hepworth)

     Mary does file suit in the death of her husband Thomas two years and five months after his death.  According to this article in the The Dailey Tribune it will be trial by jury.  At this writing I have not been able to find any more information on the matter.

     Again and again life is getting in the way of my keeping up in posting on this genealogy blog on a weekly basis. It will be a couple more weeks before I will be back for another post.
     Thank You for stopping by..
