David, if you are still on Ancestry, I apologize for not replying to this wonderful research on our behalf. I do not recall ever receiving notification of it and have been preoccupied with other genealogy for 2 years, not working on this line. I so appreciate the information that you've found and agree that much of the similarities are probably more than mere coincidence. I'm going to try to pursue these suggestions and hopefully unravel the family once and for all. Again, my sincere thanks for your time and efforts and my apology for the lack of response!
