That email was not me . that was some idiot that stole my good nature , I am so sorry for that, So Now you have seen me at my stupidest moments. You & I have a lot in common . We were Both raised by our mothers side of the family . I just got lucky to have My grate Uncle Billy Gassaway still around to feed me info about us ! I am not like that last email at all & the last thing I want is to chase you off . so please except my apology to you. I have gotten really jumpy about my customers getting one over on me. I was dealing with just that ,before I sat down to the computer, that it just slipped out in my email. See I became a welder while working for the Maryland Park & wildlife service. I went to technical school for it . Hoping to get full time work for DNR. But it never happened. so in 1993 I was badly hurt while operating a forklift, in 1996 It cost me my right foot from the knee down . Actually that was a blessing,It woke me up ! I went to work for my self in 1998 doing Ornamental iron work . Wrought Iron gates & railings. the missing foot was a wake up call. life is short & we just need to be as good as we can to the people around us. So please don't take insult to me being an ass. We are related , we are related & I found out that we are from the same family that moved from Anne Arundle to Montgomery county Md. We are 4th or 5th cousins , that isn't that far off . Capt. Charles Gassaway died before 1810 or 12, But he served & fought in the Revolutionary war . He was My ancestors Capt. John Gassaways first cousin . sometime after the civil war your family & mine moved to Howard Co. - Baltimore county .I will find out more . I want to know more . your ancestors were wealthy Maryland land owners & owned a portion of Tabots resolution manor, & other farm land in Montgomery county & Anne Arundel County Md.
