any emails please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org My cousin, Clair (Arte) McElhinny did this research. He is up in years and doesn't do geneaology anymore.I just thought I'd share what I know.I am interested how three brothers of one family married three sisters of another.But I guess it would be the closeness of the families.
