I also have been working on the family tree for several years. I also have the story of George Jon Mashon, born in 1836,I don't know where, having two sisters. Supposedly, one named Clorinda and the other one married a Gill. I also have spoken to Christine Goodpaster and was hoping to presuade her to come to the last Mashon family reunion this past April, maybe, you would like to come next year and meet some of your ancesters. You can reach me at my e-mail address or call 504-394-3292.
Hope to hear from you,
