I've already got the material for a followup on Drollette as it is because completing other research for the passport/overseas death article allowed me to discover:
- the relationship between Drollette who lived in Asia from about 1901 until his death in 1933 and a man (who never left the US until 1920) who claimed in 1920 that he had known Drollette for five years
- just how young children could be and travel by themselves overseas to China in the early 1900s
And before you think the relatives of my chidlren must all be jet-setters and world travellers, keep in mind that George Drollette was very atypical for his family. His siblings all pretty much stayed in the upstate New York area and were not world travellers.
