Elena Catherine Rose Cumpston wrote to me on 18th January 2010


She is the daughter of William Hudson Cumpston 2 born in 1957, and is 18 years old.


 Her message reads:

I was born in Tucson, Arizona in 1991.  My mother, Andrea Jeanne Luketich was born in Flint, Michigan in 1963.  I am currently residing in Burton, Michigan with my mother and stepfather, it is just outside Flint.  


My father, William Hudson Cumpston, is currently living in Cheyenne, Wyoming. His father, George, [see photo] is living in Swansboro, North Carolina. I graduated from Kearsley High School in 2009 and am currently attending University of Michigan - Flint and majoring in biochemistry. I'm on my second semester there.  


According to my grandmother, Eileen's obituary [see photo] which I found on the internet [see green box on the left] after graduating from American Institute of Foreign Trade, she movied to Lima, Peru with my grandfather where they were in business for 14 years, so that is why my father was born there.


Thanks Elena for providing all this information.
