HI KAREN,
THANKS FOR GETTING BACK TO ME. I BELIEVE BILL GARDNER THAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT WAS EMMA AUSTIN'S GRANDSON OR NEPHEW. I WAS PUT IN TOUCH WITH MR. GARDNER THROUGH A "BILL GUTFARB" WHO IS WITH THE "BOSTON TRUST MANGEMENT CORP". I WOULD REALY LIKE TO TALK WITH MR. GARDNER AGAIN.
IT WOULD ALSO BE GREAT TO TALK TO MR."THOMAS A GARDNER", I'M SURE HE COULD HELP ME THROUGH MY DELIMA. WHAT RELATION IS "THOMAS A GARDNER" TO THE YAWKEYS?
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD THE NAME "ELIZABETH CHARMICHAEL" MENTIONED? SHE WAS MY MOTHER AND MIGHT BE RELATED TO THE YAWKEYS. I HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU AGAIN, AND IF THERE IS ANY WAY I CAN TALK WITH THOMAS A GARDNER IT WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
THANK YOU,
JIM

Jim,
William H. Yawkey had a sister who had two children, Thomas Yawkey Austing and Emma Austin. When Emma was about 14, she went to live with an aunt and Tom went to live with his uncle, William H. Yawkey. Before he died, William H. Yawkey adopted his nephew and Tom's name changed to Thomas Austin Yawkey. Emma Austin married Leland Gardner, had three children- William A. Gardner(died 7/83),Robert E. Gardner(died 12/99) and Jane Gardner Head(still living). Robert Gardner married Evelyn A.(I don't know her maiden name) and had three children, William L. Gardner, and twins Thomas A. Gardner and Lynn Gardner. William A. Gardner married Marea Burke and had three children-William Austin Gardner, Jr., Michael Yawkey Gardner and Marea Emma Gardner. Jane married Murdock Head and had three children-Karen, Kim and Mark.
My boss, Marea Gardner was interested in any information you may have on William Hoover Yawkey's wife, Margaret Draper Yawkey.
Tom Gardner's office number is 518-587-4451. I'm sorry, I don't know his e-mail address.
I have never heard Mrs. Gardner mention the name Elizabeth Carmichael, but that does not mean anything. I will ask her if she knows or has heard that name mentioned.
I do know that Tom(of the Boston Red Sox) married a woman named Elyse and had one or two children and then they were divorced. He married Jane and they had know children. Emma's children were like his own.

HI KAREN,
TOM GARDNER IS THE PERSON I WAS TALKING ABOUT WHEN I SAID THAT I HAD YALKED TO "BILL GARDNER" ABOUT THE YAWKEY FAMILY. MY MISTAKE-SORRY.
I AM SO GLAD YOU SENT ME THE INFORMATION YOU DID ABOUT THE YAWKEY'S AND THE GARDNERS, IT WAS SO INTERESTING TO READ ABOUT THAT.
"MARGRET DRAPER" IS THE PERSON I AM ALSO TRYING TO GET INFO ON. THE ONLY THING I KNOW IS THAT SHE WAS FROM UPSTATE MICHIGAN AND THEN CAME TO DETROIT AND MET "WILLIAM HOOVER YAWKEY. THEY WERE NOT MARRIED FOR SEVERAL YEARS AND THEN MR. YAWKEY TOOK HER TO NEW YORK AND THEY GOT MARRIED. FROM WHAT I HAVE READ AND HEARD MARGRET DIED ON JULY 2, 1933 IN ATLANTIC CITY.
I HOPE THIS INFORMATION HELPS YOU.
WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IS WEATHER "WILLIAM HOOVER YAWKEY" AND "MARGRET DRAPER HAD ANY CHILDREN BEFORE THEY WERE MARRIED. I KNOW THIS IS VERY PERSONAL BUT IT WOULD HELP ME SO MUCH WITH MY QUEST FOR MY "FAMILT TREE"
I STLL HOPE TO TALK WITH TOM AGAI, I HAVE HIS EMAIL ADDRESS SO I'LL DROP HIM A LINE. IF YOU HAVE ANY FURTHER INFORMATION PLS DROP ME A LINE, ITS ALWAYS NICE TO HEAR FROM YOU.
THANKS AGAIN,
JIM

Jim,
I will have to ask Mrs. Gardner if she knows if William and Margaret had any children before they were married. I cannot say that I have heard of any, but I will ask.
Thanks for the information on Margaret Draper. If you find anything else out about her, please let me know.
