I am trying to find any information on two persons that would indicate that they were alive after a certain date.

The first is Brandy Patterson, who was born approximately 1964-1966, and was a senior at West Valley High School in Spokane WA - Class of 1983. I need to find any info that confirms that she was alive after June 1984. There is a Kirsten Patterson, who attended the same school, Class of 1985. Other than a common surname, and somewhat similar appearance, I have no indication that she is Brandy's sister (but she might be). I was able to locate current info on Kirsten, but not on Brandy. There is a Brandy Patterson who attended Joel Ferris HS (Class of 1990) in Spokane, and is now deceased. But this doesn't appear to be the same Brandy Patterson.

The second is Marjorie Galvib, who was born approximately 1956-1958, and attended Fort Lauderdale High School in Fort Lauderdale FL - Class of 1975. I need to find any info that confirms that she was alive after December 1975.

Also, if you are unable to find recent info on these persons, then DOB's on these two persons would be greatly appreciated if anyone can find them.

Galvib is how it's spelled in the 1974 HS yearbook. She is not in the 75 book, and I don't have access to the 72 or 73 books.

Marjorie's last name is probably Galvin, not Galvib. On the keyboard, the "b" is next to the "n" and it could have been a typo. Going to look for Marjorie Galvin.

Nice to see you made it over here. Wish I would have thought of it sooner.

I wish I knew how year books were printed back then; but it makes sense that it's a typo.

OK, now I have a question. Why do you need to know if they were ALIVE after a certain date? What is the purpose of your search, and why after a certain date? Just want to be sure of your intentions. Thanks.

There are two unidentified Jane Does who I've been trying to identify, one who died in June 84 in Spokane, and one who died in December 1975 in Davie Florida (a suburb of Fort Lauderdale).

The headless body of the Spokane Jane Doe was found in 1984, and the skull was found in 1998. She was about 18 years old. However, the skull has very distinctive characteristics (i.e., a very long face and pointy protruding jaw with a noticeable underbite). Authorities also determined that the Jane Doe was probably blonde. I started looking in high school yearbooks for schools in Spokane, and Brandy Patterson bore an amazing resemblance to what I believe the Jane Doe looked like.

The 1975 Davie FL jane doe had very distinctive teeth. She had a very wide gap (about 1/4 inch wide) between her upper front teeth, and her left front tooth (i.e., #9) protrudes outward and to the left. Marjorie's high school portrait shows her teeth. Although the photo is not very clear, one can see that she has a gap just as wide, and a #9 tooth that skews outward just like the jane doe's does.

I've searched all of my usual sources for information on these women, and have found nothing. I would prefer to not go to the authorities with these names (based only on HS yearbook images), unless I can determine that they actually are missing persons.

I've been working on Marjorie Galvin for you this morning. I have sent messages to three people on classmates.com that were in the class of 1975, asking if they may have known her. All their maiden names started with a "G" so maybe they would know her.

Have found one reference to a Marjorie Galvin in Florida. Divorce from William Raymond Woods on 30 August, 1995 in Seminole, FL. I can't seem to find her as Marjorie Woods or Marjorie Galvin anyplace. All the Marjorie Galvins are too old, and live on the west coast of Florida. Still looking.

I have located Kirsten (note spelling difference) Patterson Wilson, class of 1985. She looks very much like Brandy Patterson in the yearbook.
2525 North Ella Road
Spokane Valley, WA 99212
509-892-1722

Name associated with her is Steven Ray Wilson. Also, a Gary W. Wilson shows up.
I have not made any attempt to contact Kirsten. Your ball.
