The Gates Line

The Gates line connection is through Zena Mary Maliphant [##47048].

Zena was born in Llanelli, Wales – the first of 10 children.
She married William Gates in 1944 in Carmarthen, Wales and she then emigrated to U.S.A. in 1946, sailing from Southampton.
The family settled in Michigan.

I have only recently (Feb 2021) made contact with her great granddaughter Stephanie over there and I will work together with her and her wider family on expanding this area over the coming weeks and months.

Here are some pictures of Zena sent in by Val Johnson [##47048-50011] – like Stephanie, Zena’s great granddaughter.
