Another happy ending! I am very pleased to let readers know that we have found the daughter-in-law and two grandsons of Ronald H. Smedley.
Ronald's watch which was given to him by the citizens of his home town for his service in WW1 was found by Chad. Chad contacted Olive Tree Genealogy for help finding Ronald's descendants so he could return the watch. The original post for Case #14 "WW1 Soldier's Pocket Watch Found in Michigan!" is here.
Ronald's grandsons and their mom have all posted comments on the original post with the story of the watch (see below).
It's great to hear from Ronald Smedley's family (Ann, Ronald and
James) but please contact me directly. I will put you in touch with
Chad, the finder of the watch.
