This is all so confusing. Note that the same names seem to be repetitive through the generations. I’m so glad to see info I don’t have added here!
I wish I had time to really put this all in good order but I just don’t.
Maybe this will help people get some things straight. If you see some blanks you could fill in, please email me!

This is what I have in our family records, maybe we can all get this straightened out!
There’s to much to put down so I just put in the basics here, but if anybody has questions about wills and records references, more birth dates & places, marriages, I can try to help.
