    Sorry, N not M Sue. My big find from my visit to Greene CO, IL. In a cemetary inventory book for the WITT
    cemetary in Rockbridge, IL I found a historical sketch of my ggrandmother, Sara Ann SCROGGIN. "...Nathan
    SCROGGIN(Ssic), the father of Sarah A. Scroggins, was the great- grandson of Joseph Scroggin who founded the
    family in America. He was an Irish naval officer in the service of Philip V. of Spain. He fell in love with the Kings
    daughter, Princess Fantalina, and abducting her on his vessel, married her and sailed to America ...MD." Of course I will
    have to confirm all this but it's finds like this - happening it seems rarely - that makes this the great hobby it is. Anyway I
    was excited and hope you find this interesting. Anyone have any suggestions on how best to check out this story?
    Anyone with any contact with researchers in Spain? Dean
