Much of the information included on these web pages has been collected from a variety of generous sources who were willing to share their knowledge with me when I got "bit" by the genealogy
"bug". In an attempt to repay the debt, I'm making available, via the web, what information they have provided in addition to what I have gathered to anyone who might be interested. All of this should be taken with the proverbial "grain of salt"

photographic copies of many documents, tombstones, etc. are provided when available to aid you in your own personal search.
