    Pam, my mother grew up at 464 Kenwood in the 1950s and early ’60s, just a block away from Len and Huldah’s! Would they have lived in the house at 504 during that time? If so, my mother may recall them.

    I think it’s unlikely, but I don’t have a final answer. They resided at 401 Crescent NE in 1968 when Len died, and in the same location in 1977 when Huldah died.

    I am doing a project of looking up these families in City directories year by year, but I’m only in the 30′s right now. I work on that when I can get to the library of Michigan, which has a pretty good set.

    Somewhere around here I have a copy of a letter written by Huldah to the researchers I mentioned, memory tells me that it may tell a little about her life. I’ll dig around for it and let you know. It may be a week or so, we’re having our family here this coming weekend, and I’m kind of busy.

    Thanks for the comment, more proof that it’s a small world.

    I found the letters. One, written by Huldah to Mr. Ted McAdam on September 27, 1975 says, “….I am only a short distance from Buterworth Hospital. I have lived here since 1945. My husband passed away in 1968 and in 1979 I sold the place, and moved upstairs, which has worked out well for me…..”

    I believe that would have been the Crescent home, so the answer is, no, the Terwilliger’s didn’t live on Kenworth when your mother did. Thanks again…
