Thanks for your reply. I found a posting that was put online by Mary Semple's son a long time back. It led me to Surprise, Arizona. I called information and got a phone number of Mary's grandaughter. Mary's son had passed which is when his postings stopped. I called and spoke to his widow who was Mary's daughter in law. The son and Mary his mother are both buried in Ketchikan. What a find! We keep in touch now and traded family photos. She had pictures of my gt gt grandparents that our family had never seen. She had pictures of Mary as a child and her parents. Mary's father was my gt grandmother's brother so it was great to get pictures of him and his family. We had pictures and info that they didn't know. Ancestry is great in connecting families! You are right Ketchikan was very helpful and I did talk to Katy. She wanted me to let her know what I found and I called her back after our families made the connection. She was thrilled for us to find each other. Thanks again for your help.
