Evelyn Harrod Wilkins (mid 1970s) This is Mrs. Evelyn Bernice Harrod Wilkins, my father's older sister and the wife of Dr. Warren S. Wilkins, MD. We always called her Mousie. She was the firstborn of Viola Carter (Donna) and Irvin Harrod.
Uncle Warren had two sons by a previous marriage,
Robert Edison Wilkins (Bobby) and
Warren Seymour Wilkins, Jr.
(Warren, Jr.). Since they are step-sons of Aunt Evelyn,
we usually address each other as "cuz" to reinforce
yet distinguish our family relationship
the children of
your Aunts and Uncles are your Cousins, even if they are step-children.
(Their nuclear family is part of your extended family.)
