Hi Linda, I am researching my family and I came across your board message.
I have a lot more info on my Greenley family and I am trying to track down more on them, especially my Great Great Grandfather. I am stuck at a stand still with him. I want to try and find out who his father and mother were and where they were from. I hope this information will help you.
