Your work on the old Tavern sounds exciting to my ears. My husband and I both love to work on the old stuff. Hard work though, as nothing is square or level. I would love to see photos of your Tavern as you go. Am willing to send you money to pay for it, even.
My John Jones was born in Chester County, Pa in 1794, and so far, I have not found any concrete evidence of who his parents were, only a reference in a book written in 1896 that he came from a long line of Quakers, and nothing further, but that was more than I had previously, so can not complain.
If you desire to do so, I can be reached directly at MQuiltr2@aol.com
We just returned home from evacuating from Hurricane Ivan. The property is a mess, with a tornado that went through our back yard, tore up almost every tree on the property as well as part of the rear of the house. The entire county looks like a war zone. But we have water and power again, so things will return to normal soon enough. I love to make progress, in any degree, on my family tree. Thank you very much for the information.
