Here is another brother of my husband. And another I did not know. What I know of him is mostly from my mother-in-law and husband.

I did not meet Paul until after my husband and I separated. He went to the big city and I wanted my children to meet their uncle.

 Paul was the second son. He had an older brother and sister. He was not tall like his father and older brother.

Paul married and they had a baby girl. She was named Paula after him.

Then he just up and left. He contacted no one for a few years.

Finally he contacted his mother. He was in California. She told him he had a little girl who needed to be taken care of so he sent money for her once in a while.

Paul married again. His wife had a beauty shop and he worked at cleaning and repairing it. Apparently it was a good arrangement. She had a son he helped raise.

When his wife died the son was grown. Paul moved on.

He went to visit his mother at last. I do not know whether he re-connected with his daughter but I hope so.

Paul moved on and ended up in Florida. He also acquired another wife.

I know little else about Paul. He died in Florida in 2005.


  1. What a life he must have led, and such a sad tale indeed. Warm greetings to you.

    1. It had to be hard for him to be away from his family. They are a wonderful family. I have no idea why he felt the need to wander.

  2. Mystery relatives. We all have one or so. Even if we think we know them...

  3. It is hard to feel sympathy for a man who neglected his daughter. But it does seem he must have been a troubled soul.

  4. I am afraid of people who cannot keep their commitments dear Emma!

    still this is nice to know more about your husband's family .

    1. I am afraid that in this case I could not offer much. I do know his family loved him. I did not know or understand why he was gone so I cannot offer an opinion.
