I love reading stories about "great finds" and "strange twists of fate." I wish I had more of them.
And, I sincerely wish someone could find a box of old papers and especially old photos - which would have belonged to my ancestor's older brother, John HUTCHINSON. He and his 2 married sisters left MA and moved to Brooklyn, NY, ~1850. And, my hunch is that they took many of the paperwork and photos from the large farm in Winchester, MA, with them. I just can't find any descendant of theirs.
