Hi Sharon! St Enoder!!--I know what Mississippi is like,there have been films about it on the TV--Bet you never saw a film about St Enoder though,If youre driving through and blink,you've missed it!--Its in Cornwall,which is the most southwesterly part of the united Kingdom...and it is (by US standards..TINY!) Your ancestors probably left Cornwall because they were bone-grinding poor,like black folk in Miss. years back...Shacks,starvation,social deprivation,humiliation and desperation..but un like the coloured guys your end,the Cornish were to stubborn or stupid to have had the pride kicked out of them,so they would travel to improve.Most left when the mining collapsed,so would have followed mineral finds around the world. Although the Coads carry a genetic disposition to be scoundrels and rascals,they occasionally throw up a generation or two of decent types,but I still maintain more were born out of wedlock with their mother's names than ever got christened Coads! --you seem like a real person-- I might just find the time to take a couple of digital images of St Enoder if I can slow down enough! Coady.
