Very good points.I did review Ted Pack and there some very good points there.
My post is a very narrow request on purpose. It's intended purpose is for Stephen Howell's family line. If someone searches or begins research on Stephen then we've all gained a few more decades. The GEDCOM and research notes you mentioned is from another researcher and is intended not as spam but a starting point for someone else.They'll know when they see the notes you spoke of.
Some of the information is only available in court documents, military records or family history which I have already requested.
Very good points.And do you know of Reddick or Empraim Howell?Few people do and I was hoping you would recognize them.
