Pam: I believe what you are saying about the name thing.I'm running into some of the names in later generations also. I'm really not discouraged, I'm upset with myself for thinking it could be so easy as to get 7 generations handed to me in one document and it be correct and reliable. You mentioned DAR and SAR in an earlier communication, how hard is it to do? Thanks for the words of encouragement.I'm sure we will get it all worked out one of these days. If not, maybe future generations will.I think it was downright disrespectful of our ancestors not to keep better records, etc so we wouldn't be doing all this searching.We ought to tell them when we run across them next time. I've been fortunate enough to have contact with a family member who grew up in Washington Courthouse, Ohio and still has family there.She's going to try to get them to do some research there in Fayette Co.I'll be back in touch when I've got something to share with you.
