Dear Dave:

My name is John T. McCormick and I am a grandson of Pearl Bodine who married John Hurley McCormick, known
as Jack. Pearl and John McCormick are both buried in Calvary Cemetery, in Yakima WA. 98902. Pearl was buried on
Aug 15th 1935 and John was buried on April 16th 1947.

John's parents were Laurence McCormack who died March 14, 1906 at Ballymoylan, Co Tipperary, Ireland and Bridget Hurley who died in 1911, also at Ballymoylan.

My father often told me about a trek across several states that his mother Pearl took with her mother Ellen and Pearl's two brothers, Frank and one other whose name I do not know. Pearl would have been two ot three at the time so it must have been in the late 1880's If you or anyone else has any information about this I would very much like to have it.

Pearl had 9 children and 45 Grandchildren.

If you would like any other information I would be glad to try to oblige.
