Thanks so much! I am just beginning my research. Yes, this is definately the same line. The Charles Dasher that you referred to was my grandfather (my mother's father). I was very close to him growing up. I have not seen the photographs you spoke of and would love to see them, can I find them on ancestry.com? I also found some old pictures of my grandfather and his brothers I am planning on scanning them and including them on ancestry.com in the near future. I think one of them may be Melvin. I had discovered the Captain John Tedford link.... and found it fascinating, thanks for passing that on. I wish I could find out what happened to Otis, but I am glad that you heard the same story that I did. Also, I have heard that there was a "grandmother" somewhere on that side was a Native American indian, but I have not found documentation to support that. Thanks again, it looks like we are second cousins.
