    Wow I hardly know where to begin. I am your cousin. Cynthia K. Hileman ( Watson). I grew up in Aurora, IL. My grandfather, Carl was your father’s brother and we visited you many times when I was young. I presently live in Chicago, have 3 adult children, 7 grandchildren, one sweet dog, am single, a retired Lutheran pastor. I have worked for 20 years as Bishop Associate with the local Lutheran bishop here in Chicago. I work 10 hours a week, mostly retired.

    I’ve been doing some genealogy research trying to find out info about my birth father. And that has lead me to this email.

    Anyway your an author, wow. I have a friend with a summer home outside of Spring Green and have visited a there a couple of times.
