Dear Helene:

Hope you're sitting down!

It appears that we're researching the same KAYE family from Yorkshire, England! My husband Frank's gr-gr-gr-grandfather was the Richard KAYE you show as son of James!

His line goes as follows (as we've gathered so far from more than a year of researching):

Richard KAYE, born about 1796 (our source didn't have an exact date) at Moldgreen, near Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England, married Sarah WORTHINGTON (we found the 1817 date in a parish register, but hadn't confirmed it yet). They had at least one son, William Worthington KAYE, born 2 Apr 1822 (we had *no idea* about the other 7 children!).

William W married Sarah OATES of Leeds in 1844 at the Parish Church of Leeds; they had 4 children: Sarah, born 1850 in Leeds; William Henry, born 1854 in Philadelphia; Elizabeth Atkinson, born 1857, Phila.; and Edna Ellen, born 1859, Phila.

William Worthington KAYE fought in the Civil War as a Private in the 183rd Regiment of the Pennsylvania Volunteers, and died in the Battle of Cold Harbor, VA, on the morning of June 3, 1864.

William W's son William Henry KAYE married Fannie EDMONDSON of Eastby, Yorkshire, England, in England in 1876; they had 8 children (6 born in Philadelphia and 2 in NJ), the 6th of whom was my husband's grandfather Edward KAYE.

Edward married Elizabeth EDWARDS of Camden, NJ in 1908. They had 8 children also (all born in NJ), the 6th of whom was my husband's father Frank KAYE (no middle name).

Frank married Evelyn PETERSON of Chicago and had 5 children, the eldest of whom is my husband, Frank Ryan KAYE. He married ME, and we have two sons.

PLEASE write back and let us know a few things, won't you?

First of all, where did your information about Richard and Sarah come from, and how did you determine that Richard was the son of James? We've been trying to figure out who his father might have been, but have not turned up a single clue!

Second, what is your source for all the names of Richard and Sarah's children?

Third (but probably most important!), are you a direct descendant of Richard and Sarah?, and if so, please tell us about your connection!

Needless to say, we'll happily share all the info we have about the family (lots more than what's here). We'll be anxiously awaiting your reply!!
