PLEASE NOTE:

·        I have not researched heavily into this line of my family, and NONE of these folks have been verified with primary documents.  The information presented on this page has been shared by other researchers via E-mail. 

·        I have NOT tried to verify any of these folks yet. 

·        If you are related to any of these families, and see any errors or omissions (probably a lot), PLEASE let me know so I can correct them. 

·        This is a work in progress, and therefore will probably never be completed, as there will always be new information available. 

·        I know there is a disparity in the early generations, and I would love to set that record straight.

·        Research into this family is currently on hold, but I am leaving this page up to serve as a guide for other family members.

·        See Surnames for other family names I am searching for.
