The information on these pages is the direct result of 4 geographically-distant researchers (PA, TN, NY & MO) sharing their information. Each of us had our own limited collection of family lore but together, WOW! 

Photos have been shared, connections have been made, and family histories have been dramatically expanded.   The cooperation continues, so watch for updates as more information is shared.

Proof once again that genealogy truly is the "world's largest interactive jigsaw puzzle." No piece is too small or insignificant -- when combined with other "bits" the results can be astonishing!  Genealogy people are the best!!
