I have been in contact with George Wellstead a nephew of Charles J. Wellstead. George and his sister, Chris, are working to find additional information about their uncle, but much of the families documents and photos were lost when the family home was flooded by Hurricane Donna in 1960. But, they will forward any information or photos, if they turn-up.
George and Mary (Hayes) Wellstead were the parents of Charles J. Wellstead. Charles Wellstead had his own airplane before WWII, which he flew out of Floyd Bennett Field, New York. Charles was over 6 feet tall with a sharp beak nose. His nephew recalls that Uncle Chuck or "CJ" flew for PanAm before the War. Charles was married to Betty Jane Marshall. Betty passed away in 1968.
