Thank you Virginia for sharing this information. George Roff, a cousin of Lee's, and George's neice Roxanne Roff Wood, both from Fort Worth, are planning a short visit to Beaukiss and wanted to connect with Lee. I'm sorry for your loss. I suppose it had been a while since they spoke or saw each other.

As George's family info-keeper, can you share the ancestry of Lee's mother, Ross Roff Lawrence, so I can add this information correctly to mine?

Thanks again.

I am not related. I just help out on the boards when I can. The address & phone I posted is for Virginia, the widow of Lee. You can probably try to contact her for the information you need.

So sorry that I mistook your position in this thread. I may write to Virginia and see if she's willing to share.
I do thank you sincerely for your help.

Hi Liz. Thank you very much for noticing this and replying. First of all, the Roff family member that I represented in my original inquiry, George Withers Roff, passed away last Fall. If you would allow me some time, please let me gather my thoughts and questions that I can remember and try to submit them to you. Sometimes it works better to communicate via email, and I'm willing to do that. If you are willing, please feel free to write to me at smoore@wans.net and I can reply to your message with the questions that George might have had back in 2009. Thanks again, Steve Moore.
