This is for Mike Flowers and is probably just an enormous coincidence. My grandfather, Morris Stamm, was born in Brody, Ukraine (then Austrian Galicia) in 1876. His parents, as listed on his death certificate, were "Sam" and "Mary." In Jewish families, it's customary to name children after deceased relatives; so given names keep repeating throughout various generations.

Sam Stamm et. al.

Thanks for the reply! I've been on vacation so I missed it until now. My Sam Stamm had a daughter, Mary Elizabeth Stamm, who supposedly married Cornelius Benjamin Snyder, my GGgrandfather. However, the record is muddled and there is references to an Annie Mary Stamm marrying Harrison Benajamin Snyder in the next generation. This is all being reconstructed from an oral history I took 24 years ago - but a lot of these leads have panned out with real facts, so you never know ...

Thanks again for your reply - Mike Flowers
