Yes. She is my great-grandmother. I have very warm, early memories of
her (mid 1950's).

I've been working on a family tree website for the past 3-4 days.

What a surprise! I've forwarded your note (above) to descendants of Nina's brothers Alvia (Barbara Hill) and Orange (Cathy Troegle Pettibon). Both are interested in genealogy. I've wondered what happened to Nina—-all we knew was that she had gone to California.

Where do you live? Orange's (he was called “Pete”) descendants are pretty much in Kansas and Texas. Four of five of his children are living—-Oran (my father-in-law) passed away on May 6, 1996. The oldest living child is Helen, who is as sharp as a tack, who is in her 80's. My mother-in-law, Evelyn Troegle, lives here in Dallas.

Later, Brenda

Dear Mary,

I received an e-mail from Nancy Carter with you inquiry regard Ada Nina Troegle. My mother was Ada Mable Troegle, daughter of Alvia Troegle, who was the brother of Ada Nina Troegle. I would be glad to share what data I have with you. I have done quite a bit of searching and have found good documented information on she and Fletcher and family. I look forward to hearing from you.
