John Neubauer - do you have any other info on the Afflecks or Howards? I've been researching extensively for the last few years. My grandfather was Ralph Patterson, grandson of Harriet Affleck (sister to Mary Affleck.) I have vague memories of attending family reunions when I was young, and my mother tells me that Helen Neubauer was there. I love to be in touch to find out what info we might trade.
