It looks like we definitely have a connection! I am too excited and so is my mom! I called my Uncle Jim and my Uncle Roy last night (Bessie's boys) and they are also excited. We should take this offline now as we will be filling up this site. You can reach me directly at email@example.com
and we can continue our journey. I'll pull together what I can on what I have found and my family suspicions on petigree and share it with you.
Please do drop me a line. I will respond to both yours and Beth's emails when you send me your email addresses. Good Lord, this is exciting. Such a mystery.
