Looking for my own family is proving to be a substantial and revealing process with contact from a wide variety of people and information generously shared http://lynnesheritage.wordpress.com/ – but when it comes to finding MELINDA – things are different. Even the fellow seekers are having difficulty. One of them described the McNallys as a “strange secretive lot “. I thought that a ‘literary’ family with a poet of renown would leave a brighter trail to follow but Melinda seems well eclipsed. Sometimes I just want to beg. Surely there are others out there who would like to see Melinda and her McNallys as well as her daughters and son Basil E. drawn out of the shadows of Henry.
