I am trying a new approach here now - all these names and places ( Bjork, Seiwert, Yeoman, Collis, Beveridge in Connecticut and Maine) all come up in my search for any living relatives of my gt grandfather David Beveridge of Hartford Connecticut. So if anyone recognises them please give me a message!!

Thanks,

Perhaps if we work forward as far as we can with the families there would be a likely hood of someone picking the thread up on google ? Or someone picking up obituaries for the families.

Norman R Bjork the son of Ralph and Jennie (nee Beveridge) Bjork born 5 Nov 1925 died July 1976 - Last Residence 06413  Clinton, Middlesex, Connecticut.  SSN issued Connecticut (Before 1951)
Norman was married at age 35 years  16 September 1961 Clinton, Middlesex, Connecticut.

The daughter was in the Hartford Connecticut City Directory in 1952 as married and moved to Westport New York but I can't see a sign of her so far.

Father Ralph Bjork - 15 Mar 1895 - died 14 January 1983 - Spouse - Jenni -Ralph was a letter carrier.

Hi Sandra,
Thanks for the help.
Jennie's obituary : 1975 age 80 of Clinton formerly East Hartford. It mentions son Norman, daughter Evelyn Siewert and brother Thomas of Newington. Also four grandchildren. I have the names of grandchildren but don't think I can post as they may still be alive.

The daughter of Jennie may still be living, I haven't come across a death record for her which would mean you may have to remove her name. (no living people rule)  Have you tried whitepages usa, spokeo, switchboard.com etc to see if you can find those grandchildren listed on the obituary?

Hi Sandra,
Sorry our posts crossed there.  I only have two names for the grandchildren (sorry not the four as stated on the obit) both from Norman and both girls - assuming they married their names would have changed that's why i put the names on here as they are quite unusual.  The other two are probably from Evelyn Seiwert as it looks like Robert Beveridge son of Thomas didn't marry and neither did Marjorie.
The name Seiwert seems to change quite a lot.  Ralph S Bjork (Jennie's husband and father of Norman and Evelyn) died in 1983 and had lived in Moodus for the past 6 months.  His daughter E***** also of Moodus.

Fred I Collis was the husband of Elizabeth M Beveridge (daughter of David and Rachel  - my ggrandfather).  I have no obit for either only a 1930 census in Hampden Palmertown Mass. They have one son living with them Leonard but whether he is the only child i don't know. Fred is 42 and she is 40 on the census. It has also been spelled Collins.
Yeoman was the surname of Jennie Beveridge (David's sister) They are on the 1910 census with daughter Dorothy in Berkshire Mass. She married John C Yeoman. No obits for any of them yet.
I have an obit for Allan - he lived in Toledo Ohio and died aged 44 as you said.  His wife was Jessie Griggs (forgot to put that name in) one daughter Jeane.
That's about it up to now!!
