You are most welcome. Umm, did someone ring the Allender wake-up bell? :-) I've been exchanging emails with Christy for a few weeks now and have really appreciated getting to know her. I believe we can probably figure out the Md to Ohio connections. I just received a letter from my Iowa Uncle Biays (named after Joseph Allender's wife's family (Mary Biays) - he's really our genealogist and he said he would dig through his files and see what he could come up with. He's a regular treasure trove of information. I'll post what I find on your forum to share with all.
Take care and feel free to contact me whenever.
