Hi, Roland, Thanks for responding to my post. We are cousins! According to my genealogy software, Henry Sheppard Gandy was my half-3rd great-granduncle. I am descended from Henry Harris Gandy Sr. and his first wife Tamson Garrison, through his daughter Matilda Gandy who married Ephraim Cary, through their daughter Rhoda who married Joseph Franklin, through their daughter Ruth who married David Snider, through their daughter Myrtle who married William Yawman (my grandparents).
I am working on a descendancy project trying to identify all of Henry Sr.'s descendants. If you are interested in sharing information, please email me at dspurlock(dot)ancestraltrees(at)gmail.com
