Actually, I'm not related to the James Addy I mentioned... I came across him while doing some research, and I think that you and I corresponded once before a long time ago...
If you are the same Mike Addy that I remember, you were working in Africa at the time, and your mother in Wisconsin? sent me a letter with some additional info.
Its nice for me to have a little of an idea about your family, since there are not too many Addy's, it helps to be able to say... "OK, this one isn't from our family, their parents are in the Minnesota Addy branch..."
I think I posted that a long time ago, in case I could share the information I have with someone who is searching for it.Its nice to have a thread like this that people can find months or years later and start up some correspondence.
