I have enclosed a picture that I found in a box at my mom and dad's. I made a copy for you and I couldn't wait to send it so I had Doug scan it. It is a family photo of the William Valantine Dildine clan.

In the front row the three children on the right is we think Thelma , your grandmother, and one of the children in the middle dad thinks is Arthur Burnett, believed to be the son of Willametta May Dildine and Virge Burnett. The third child is unknown because I don't have anything other than Willametta Dildine married Virge Burnett 29 December 1899.

In the middle row on the right is Ada Nina Troeggle Dildine , in the center dad beleive's is Virge Burnett husband of Willmetta May Dildine. on the left center is Willmetta May Dildine Burnett.

In the back row is Charles Fletcher Dildine , next to ( Pa) is his mother Carrie Adelphia (Adella) Procter Dildine, Then comes William Valentine Dildine the father and next to him is Ernest Roscoe Dildine their last child.

So you see this is the greatest find yet. It is the William Valentine family , the parents and their three children and spouses and three of their grandchildren.

Please pass it onto anyone you think it will be of interest.

Let me know what you think of the photo and I will send a framed copy to your mom or take it to her in Tahoe in February…….

This is so much fun.. Renee ( Maureen Joseph Young)

Dear Family, I went by Evergreen Cemetery in Oakland the other day and found the grave marker for William and Carrie. I thought you all might be interested to see the setting. It is a large cemetery perched on a hill top with lovely views. The area around the cemetery is a bit run down, and it is very close to Mills College. Evergreen's biggest claim to fame is that many of the Jonestown Massacre victims are buried there.

Sorry that I won't be able to see you all at the annual Dildine reunion this year - I am really going to miss it!! If you go, take pictures and tell me all about it.

Love, Sue
