After 33 plus years, I continue to work on this database daily, so most of the data is my own personal research. Research done by others has been graciously shared and well documented; however, it is always wise and your responsibility to verify all before adding to your database. This research is only meant to be a helping hand to get you going in the right direction. No one does this alone. We are a genealogical family and I thank everyone who has helped in building this tree.
