    There is only one person with the initials C.C. from the East Central H.S. Class of 62.



    However, she is not the UID. She passed away on August 28, 2011.

    http://www.puenteandsons.com/?siteid...ituaryid=98379

    Perhaps the UID is this woman's daughter? If so, are there any other living relatives?

    This one should be pretty easy to solve.

    I lost my class ring while out shopping right before graduation. I always wondered what happened to it. Wonder if this C.C. still has hers?

    What I find strange is how she ended up "within a cement highway dividing structure" between the eastbound and westbound lanes of highway 90.

    If you google map that location, all there is between the eastbound and westbound lanes is K-Rail. And there are only a couple of places where there is enough space between the K-Rails to fit a body.

    Someone must have dumped her body there, but how could someone pull over at the center median on a very busy highway (visible to both directions of traffic) and dump a dead body?

    CC is listed on this obituary as the step-daughter of the deceased (D.W., who passed away on July 28, 1998). DW's obit further mentions a wife AW of San Antonio (probably CC's mother), 12 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; and seven nieces and nephews.

    I bet our Jane Doe is one of DW's 12 grandchildren.

    1) Good question. 2) We had a case here recently like that:

    I've been trying to locate a living relative of CC with no luck.

    I was going through all the names of surviving relatives of DW from the obit that I linked-to above.

    * I found a phone # for DW's wife (ACW of San Antonio, Born in 1925), but it was disconnected. BTW, her middle initial "C" is CC's surname, so this is probably CC's mother.
    * I couldn't find anything on the daughter LW of Fort Worth.
    * His Stepdaughter CC (whose photo is posted above) passed away in 2011.
    * I tried calling his Son DW Jr. of Fort Worth, and reached a woman who didn't know who CC was.
    * His Daughter BMS of Lohn TX passed away in 2011.
    * I found a couple of phone #s for his son WW of Gunter TX, but one is disconnected, and the other is set to block incoming calls.
    * Given his age, I am guessing that any siblings are likely too old to still be alive.

    I probably could have reached CC or BMS if I had tried to reach them in 2007 when the Jane Doe was found. But they are deceased now.

    It could be that our Jane Doe might not have any remaining living relatives. Or perhaps she got the HS ring from a thrift store, and isn't related to CC.

    Class rings are usually purchased junior year. Is it possible CC dropped out or transferred and isn't in the yearbook you looked at?

    No, CC is the woman pictured above in Post #2 of this thread. The UID was wearing CC's ring, But CC isn't the UID. (1) CC died in 2011, and (2) A person who was 18 in 1962 would be much older than the estimated age of the UID.

    I think I asked the question wrong. Is it possible there was ANOTHER CC who got a ring but didn't graduate?

    It's possible, but I doubt it. There were only 48 Seniors in the Class of 62, and only one other student (BC) with a surname beginning with C.

    She was also in the 1961 book as a Junior, and there were no other Juniors in 1961 with the initials C.C.

    BTW, funny coincidence - the image on the cover of the 1962 yearbook is a drawing of a 1962 class ring.

    Ah, thanks, so you did check the previous year. You've got mad skills.

    In that case, I would think we were dealing with a relative of the CC you found or perhaps a family friend. My high school had a tradition where some people handed down their rings to daughters, nieces, godchildren etc, if they went to the same school. Not sure if that is done at public schools as well.

    There is someone else in the country with the same name. I wonder if she could be a niece named after her aunt. Also, I've seen the name spelled with one L and LL, have you concluded which spelling is correct?

    I've seen it in three places with the single L spelling.

    Where did you find the other person with the same name?

    Living in Rhode Island. Let me dig it up again. It's spelled with 2 Ls in the Rhode Island name. I'll PM you.
