Loya Family Genealogy Forum
You made my day. Nice to meet you, too. I'm so pleased that you responded to my message.
Mary Loya Merritt Atwood was my adopted grandmother's mother; however, she was also related to my mother(maiden name: swenor) because Mary's sister Emma married Fred Swenor and they are my great-grandparents on Mom's side. (As you said, the Swenor, Loya and LaPine families intermarried with one another extensively in Vermont.) I will certainly contact you. Please feel free to do the same with me. Thanks again for your help.
