IN LOVING MEMORY
Over the past 10 years, I have met countless relatives who have helped me with my research. These are people that would otherwise have been strangers because we are so distantly connected. I'm talking about 3rd, 4th, 5th, and even 6th cousins, with several generations of removals in some cases. Each one of these folks were willing, and excited, to talk to me, which is something I'll always be grateful for. I was able to meet some of them in person, while others were simple phone calls that turned into amazing connections. It's always sad to hear when someone passes away and in most cases, their spouses and children didn't even know me, so I use this page as a way to say, "Thank you," to these relatives and honor their contributions to my research.
