NOTICE: I spent five mos. of 2012 in hospital and/or rehab facilities, so this site has been neglected. Doris

This information is a compilation of many relatives' dedicated research over decades, which continues today. So much more historical and genealogical material is now accessible on the Internet that there has been insufficient time to verify all of it, and not all our sources are shown.

NOTE: To exclude living people, estimated birthdates shown as (ca) or (?) were assigned where lacking. Corrected, more complete dates/places/spouses/children welcome.

My apologies for unintentional errors and omissions. We hope to hear from lost relatives and share our knowledge. My cousins and I appreciate your feedback; please be patient with me in answering. For MORE INFORMATION click the GEDCOMS link above, which takes you to my data on Rootsweb.
