We have different John Thomas Ables. And no I wasn't offended. I apologize if I made you think so. I guess I was just wanting to be sure we're speaking of the same JT. Too bad we're not, I was really excited thinking you might know who my JT's parents were. I have an idea it might be one "Harman Ables", but still haven't found any proof. Anyways, enjoy your adventure and would be happy if you let me know if you happen to cross upon anything regarding my JT. Good Luck!
