This is a very old post. My name is Joan Utley Jeffries, descendent of John Utley and Hannah Reese. John was the son of Samuel Utley and Betsey French. I've had genealogy on hold because of an increasingly busy work schedule but I've just retired, working as a volunteer at our local (Alexandria, LA) genealogical library and looked up these posts.l I hope that we can connect now! My husband's e-mail is above (email@example.com
) and you can reach me through that. Yours is new information to me - had no information on John's siblings, except his brother Rufus. Please write! One of my cousins is descended from John's youngest son, also John, and Amy Kipp! Quite a popular name! She would be thrilled to hear from you, if we can connect. Hoping it's not too late!
