This is a work in-progress that I am trying to update. I know that I have missed much. Send suggestions, new information, notes, pictures or scanned images, etc to the (e)mail address above.
(note that new info must be verifiable).

This was produced with the Legacy genealogy program. I would highly recommend Legacy as a base for any work that you want to do. The basic (yet very advanced) program is free. The advanced program costs big bucks: $29.95 with free updates until the major version changes (it took a few years to move from 7.0 to 7.5). Email me if you have questions.
