One more thing...the information contained on this page was not meant to take the place of doing your own research by using primary records such as birth certificates, census records, wills, etc .  You can find a list of my sources by clicking on the hyperlink for sources on the family tree pages.  I have worked very hard to ensure that I have given proper credit to every source of data on these pages.  Some of my information has come from other family members, however, and I don't know their sources.  In other words, everything on this page may not be completely accurate and you would be wise to verify all names, dates, etc. for yourself.
