This is as far back as I have gotten on the Canby side of my family. I have some information about the siblings of each of these; however any information would be greatly appreciated. If you find any mistakes in my information, please let me know. Most of my information has been researched carefully; however, mistakes are still possible. I am not only trying to find my ancestors, but I am also looking for relatives today. Therefore, I would like information connecting people alive today with me. One of my life goals is to actually meet a tenth cousin. I appreciate any help that you could give me.
