This information is fantastic, and YOU are fantastic!
That's the fastest follow-up I've ever seen!Many times, posts to these boards don't get answered for YEARS.
I myself replied once, this past summer to a Genealogy.com message board post from 1999---five years later!---and located a long-lost relative who in fact was quite closely related!
And thanks for the tip about the books for sale at the Wayne County Genealogical Society:I don't have deep roots in the community, my own direct family having not lived there for say, 160 years, but I may just BUY the books, as my token of support for all the wonderful things these volunteers do!
If you desire any lookups of your own, you know where to find me.
Meanwhile, my revised "Irvin Genealogy" will soon be posted to World Family Trees.My goal is to document, as much as I can, the history of the Scots-Irish, who allied themselves with the German "Brethren" communities, in their push westward, from Pennsylvania and Maryland, to Ohio and Indiana, and beyond.
We often think of the Amish and the Mennonites as being insular, clannish and "out of this world". Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, they were a very tolerant people who welcomed may "outsiders" into their communities.
