I am researching the Harrison family of Cootehill, County Cavan, Ireland.This family has taken a DNA test and I would enjoy hearing from any member of the family of Cornelia Abbott Mitchell Cramond to share the results with them.
I am also interested in learning, did Cornelia and David Cramond of Wolfe Island, Ontario, Canada, have children?
