I have tried to contact Laurel at an old email address and it has failed.So I will post the message I wrote to her on this forum.If any one knows her current address please send this on to her:
Hello Laurel, I want to touch bases with you once again.I was one of the last folks to purchase your book and I am so very grateful that I have it!
I do want to keep you up to date as others may contact you with regard to this particular Prink/Crosby lineage. With the help of your book tying my husband's line back to John Lendall Crosby, I have, just a week ago, now proven him back to 13 of the Barons of the Magna Charta, the Plantagenet Kings of England, to the Kings of France, Wales, Spain, and Scotland, then back to William the Conqueror and now to Charlemagne.
I have now proven the line from John Lendall Crosby, who married Ruth Naomi Prink back to Johnathan Crosby, Sr. and Rebecca Colburn, (the g grandparents of John Lendall Crosby). The lineage of Rebecca Colburn has been reviewed and accepted by both the Order of the Crown of Charlemagne and the Baronial Order of the Magna Charta.
I now have solid documentation from my husband's ancestor, John Lendall Crosby, back to this historical lineage, with the crucial tie contained with the documentation in your book. That will ensure that this history be recorded now in the archives of both of these organizations.
I just wanted to let you know that all of your hard, diligent, work and kindness to share it with all who are interested, has been extremely important in this endeavor to find how the Prink/Crosby history is a link to this historical past.
Thank you again…to find this history now back through the Middle Ages, the Dark Ages, to the Merivingian Dynasty and beyond, is truly humbling.
