I am the granddaughter of Margaret Louise Townsend Merchant, who was the sister of George Glee Townsend. I have quite a bit of information, basically of my grandmother on down which I would be willing to share. In addition I have quite a bit of information on her grandmother and grandfather, Jacob Jennings Deems and Louisa Arnold. Her parents were I. Ora Townsend and Anna Deborah Deems.
I have the DAR applications of my grandmother, her sister Francis Adelaide MaCauley Parks, Cora Townsend (their father's sister) etc. Which DAR applications do you have?
I have a photo of I. Ora Townsend, John Wesley Townsend (his father) my grandmother, Mzargaret Louise Townsend Merchant, and my mother, Margaret Louise Merchant Connelly, (about 6 months) and a man and baby. This baby appears to be about the same age as my mother who was born December 28, 1913. (I didn't know which brother this was as my grandmother had two brothers). Perhaps the man and baby in the picture are George and his son John Wesley.
I would be very interested in exchanging information with you. I will be looking forward to hearing from you. I tried to e-mail a response but the e-mail did not go through. Perhaps we can connect this way.
