Family stories were that the boys had a sister, but no details were ever given. Information has not been found in any records that would confirm this, however, I also cannot state assuredly that she did not exist. Any information that could be shared about this is welcome.
Have Anything to Share?
If you have anything you would like me to add to the page (photos, stories, etc.), a suggestion to improve something, see a correction that needs to be made, or just want to say hello, I would love to hear from you.
In addition, I have accumulated a great deal of images and information on our collateral lines (extended family outside of direct ancestors and their immediate families). Due to space limitations, much of that is not able to be included in this website. If you are related, think you might be, or just want to know more, I am happy to help.
