Lundy -- Cousins, you and I and, it appears by several posts in response to yours, Morrie77 is a cousin, as well. The two of you have illuminated many mysteries in my family tree. I had always suspected that Susan John Hartman might be a cousin of Rev. William Munford Baker, as marriage was more common among cousins in that time -- especially among small populations -- but not so close a cousin as she.
As you may know, Cordelia Mercy Lundy Baker was the daughter of Jane Susan Ayres Lundy, and cousin to Cordelia Louise Benet and Eleanor Van Vansickle Benet, both childless. Eleanor died in the 1940s and left many family heirlooms of our Derby/Ayres/Lundy line with my grandmother, Jane Ayres Baker Philips. They are now with me. They include belongings of Cordelia Derby Ayres, our 3-greats grandmother. My mother was Cordelia LUNDY Philips!
Thank you for this connection and for all the information. I hope we'll continue to share.
