My family has two mahjong sets that were my grandmother's. She received them from her friend Ruth Whitaker who loved to travel with her family. My grandmother is Edith Marie Lyons Myers. One is in a small rectangle box and maybe a double decker. I have another one in a long rectangle box and the box is deteriorating so I put it into a storage box for preservation.

My grandfather was Joseph Lewis (Louis) Myers, Born approx 1910-1912. The family was from the NYC area. I do not know anything other then his name and that he possibly had a brother John. My grandmother was Helen Benson Myers. They had 2 sons. Joseph H and Walter. My grandmother once told me that General Myers was a cousin of mine. I am looking for family history for myself and my sister and brother.
