Hi Carol, I live in Florida, Just north of Tampa. I haven't been able to trace my fathers family past his grandfather Gilbert so far but I am hoping. The word in the family was that we were Scotch-Irish and Greman on my fathers side and I know the German come from his mother so I always thought the Scotch Irish must have been his fathers side and I wont be surprised it I find ancestors in Ireland. I don't know how to e-mail you directly without putting my e-mail address on here and I hate to do that as yet. If you know a way let me know and I would love to e-mail you. Sort of a Carol to Carol I will tell you I am on AOL. Maybe you can find me that way.
