After many years and Lies I am trying to find answers to so many lies and just get a Peace of tranquility in my family. Why there were so many lies I will never understand and SO Much name calling. I grew up Hating my family. And I know it is so wrong and I know sau=ying what I feel is even more wrong. But from all the Lies us 6 Kids have been told. I feel I have to say I am Glad Both My parents are gone. My dad died in 1989 of Cancer. And Mom in 1996 of CHF and COPD. But at least I can take it upon myself to finally get some answers. My mother was raised as Violet Marie Wust. But 2 weeks before her death we found out that the man Charles Erwin Wust was no relation to her. She was 2 when her parents met. So that was one lie.We found out her real Name was Violet Marie Larsen. She was born to Edith Ellen Irwin and a Glen Larsen in Pierre South Dakota. Then we were raised by a Maurice Edwards Wardell and found out he never fathered any of us 6 kids. And we found out his name was Morris Edwin Wardell. My grandmother went by Edith Ellen Wust but we found out her and Charles were never married. Her real name was Edith Ellen Irwin. She was the Daught of Miles P. Irwin.The son of George Washington Irwin he was born March 12,1836 in Allegheny, Pennsylvania. And died May 17,1917 in Gallatin, Missouri he married a Francis Jane Foster from Canada. George was the son of John W. Irwin. Born August 15,1800 or 1805 in Allegheny Pennsylvania. He married a Marah Elizabeth Billich]k she was born 1803 and died 1889. They were married in 1829 in New York. But I can not find out who his parents were. Or where he was from.Any help would be so great. We were never allowed to know the family on either side. And now I am the youngest I will be 47 the end of July and would Love to find any cousins out there. I know Edith had 7 children. And All of her faimly is gone now.
