Hi Pat -

Yes, I know about your lineage. If you wish to review the file to see what you might consider adding, let me know and I will send it to you. I, too, am very dissappointed by Elton's documentation on this line, which is not even remotely his lineage.

He did that without consulting me and I fear he relied too heavily upon the late Hubert Lacey's work and a Fritts lady in Arkansas, unfortunately. I suspect it was mostly about creating books from their point of view and getting his name in print as the 'expert', but that is just my humble opinion.

But be that as it may, we can correct it to ensure that others will not be misled. BTW, not many people know this but Elton's first genealogy website was one that I gave him lock, stock and barrel. It was a proven model, very popular with tons of data and one that was featured on the NBC Today Show. But he changed it all up and made it something that was easily forgettable with error filled data.

Such is life....
