|My first name is really Fleda, but
I have always been called Jackie. My father was John
Elmer Caddy, click for a photo, and his father was
James Henry Caddy of Helston, Cornwall. My grandfather
came to the United States to work as a miner, and he was
killed in a mining accident at the Amodor mine in
California in 1888. My father died in a mining-related
accident - hit by a rock while some excavating was being
done - three months before I was born. I was born in
Jackson, California, in 1916. My mother soon returned to
Michigan, which was her home, and I grew up there. I now
live at Washington Court, a senior citizen apartment
building, in Iron Mountain, Michigan. My husband,
Lawrence Chapman, died 13 years ago. He was a farmer,
hunter and trapper. We have five children, three boys and
two girls, 16 grandchildren, and our 23rd and 24th
great-grandchildren are on their way! The three boys have
continued in their dad's love of hunting; one of them
raises coon and bear hounds. I enjoy singing with a group
that performs at hospitals, nursing homes and senior
citizen events. I also enjoy going on bus trips and
eating dinner with my friends at the senior center.
I just started working on my family history about a year ago. On my father's side, I didn't have much information, but am finding more and more.
