Note: the following chart has been compiled to a large extent from census records and a few other sources and is therefore far from complete. It is offered as a working chart and one that should not be taken  as a final product. As more people come online hopefully we can better complete parts of these family charts. People born after 1920 have been omitted for privacy reasons. Please send additions and corrections.
