  • Are There Any Senior Fans Of Esther Williams? She was an Olympic medal winning swimmer turned movie star by MGM, which was very good at doing that kind of thing. She just died at the age of 91.

    I have to admit, I had never even heard of her until I saw the movie That’s Entertainment, and even then the segment seemed like a kind of filler to make the movie the standard length. But when I heard the news of her death, I felt a certain kind of regret:

    I am marginally a senior at 61. Just have felt like one my whole life, it’s that anachronistic thing, I guess.

    Initials That Spell Words? I like it when a person’s initials spell a word. My initials are PAL for example. Now that I’m married my initials are PALM.
    With a last name that starts with an M, can you guys think of some combinations of girl and boy names whose initials spell a word?

    Feel free to add pics and personalities. Most detailed gets best answer.

    Note: Just because a name is on here doesn’t mean I actually like the name. By the end some of them were just popping into my mind.

    Birth 1: Girl/Girl twins
    Ever Rose and Ava Lily: They are very sweet little girls. Ever is shy, while Ava is outgoing. They both love ballet and horses.
    (Ava, left and Ever, right)

    Birth 2: Boy
    Aiden Dakota: He is intelligent and curious and loves to explore.

    Birth 3: Boy
    Menelaus Sirius: He is a cheerful, happy little boy with a very sweet heart.

    Birth 4: Boy
    Alexandrius Poseidon: He is mischievous and full of energy. He loves water.

    I have 5 children: Ever, Ava, Aiden, Menelaus, and Alex

    I hope you have fun, because this took forever. 😀
    @Eva accoprding to the game Marc and Nate are twins, how can only one be yours

    • Curator says:

      Birth 1:
      Boy/girl twins
      Ariana Marie & Alexander James.
      Identical in looks, both small like me with a hint of their fathers dark skin and brown almond eyes, with dark brown hair, however they are opposite in personality with Ariana being very mischievous and Alexander more shy.

      Birth 2:
      Marietta Harmony
      Dark complexion, almost black curly hair, needs glasses and is quiet and very demure and pleasant, as she gets older is very intellectual.

      Birth 3:
      Winter Mariah & Thalia Rain
      Peter Sirius & Edward Theseus
      All black haired with light caramel colored skin, Winter is very slightly built while Thalia is sturdier. Peter is slimmer and sometimes intimidated by the taller, chubby Edward. Thalia is by far the most outgoing but the rest do join in with her little adventures. Winter and Edward constantly fight but are very protective of each other.

      Birth 4:
      Cianna Cherokee
      Cece is very pretty, small and slim with boundless curls of dark brown hair. She has dark olive skin and is the only one to inherit my green eyes. She is playful to the extent that her older siblings find her annoying, and does not know why Marietta would rather study than play with her. She has a great imagination and when bored draws detailed pictures or tells elaborate stories.

    thank u shortgilly hopefully i can use this info 2 trace my family back but i also need to know what john evans parents names were thank u to anyone who can help

    • Curator says:

      This looks like them in the 1920 census, with a new brother for John:
      Name: Grace Logsdon
      Event Year: 1920
      Event Place: , Bedford, Pennsylvania
      Gender: Female
      Age: 26
      Marital Status: Married
      Race: White
      Birthplace: Pennsylvania
      Birth Year (Estimated): 1894
      Relationship to Head of Household: Wife
      Father’s Birthplace: Pennsylvania
      Mother’s Birthplace: Maryland
      SELFEmanuel LogsdonM31y Pennsylvania
      WIFE Grace LogsdonF26y Pennsylvania
      SONDonald LogsdonM1y11m Pennsylvania

      This looks to match in 1910, same area, and gives her parents:
      Name: Grace E Evans
      Event Place: Londonderry, Bedford, Pennsylvania
      Gender: Female
      Marital Status: Single
      Race: White
      Relationship to Head of Household: Daughter
      Immigration Year:
      Birthplace: Pennsylvania
      Father’s Birthplace: Pennsylvania
      Mother’s Birthplace: Maryland

      SELFJohn M EvansM41y Pennsylvania
      WIFEAlice E EvansF42y Maryland
      DAU Grace E EvansF17y Pennsylvania
      SONAlbert EvansM13y Pennsylvania
      SONCalvin EvansM10y Pennsylvania
      DAUMae EvansF7y Pennsylvania
      DAUPearl EvansF2y Pennsylvania

      If she died in Pennsylvania, you can order the death certificate for about $3.

      I’d venture this is her parents marriage:

      Name: John M. Evans
      Spouse’s Name:Alice Reilly
      Event Date: 08 Jun 1898
      Event Place: Luzerne, Pennsylvania, United States
      Spouse’s Mother’s Name:Mary Devans
      Indexing Project (Batch) Number:I01414-4
      System Origin: Pennsylvania-ODM
      GS Film number: 955885
      There’s an image available:

      This could be Alice in 1870, but not much to be sure:
      Name: Alice Riley
      Birth Year (Estimated): 1870
      Gender: Female
      Age (Original): 3m
      Race: White
      Birthplace: Maryland

      Mary RileyF17y England
      Elizabeth RileyF15y England
      Alice RileyF3m Maryland
      William RileyM2y Maryland

      This appears to be the same family in 1880
      Name: Allice Riley
      Event Place: Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States
      Gender: Female
      Age: 10
      Marital Status: Single
