Hello.I found out by accident that the founder of the "Greenlaw Family Association" had passed away.I thought I had posted the information here, but I don't see my message.So, I'd like to copy/paste my message from another Message Board - here:
Hello. I remembered today that I should tell the "GREENLAW Family Association" about the passing of John GREENLAW in 2006. I had just found out in November.*
I wrote to Stephen SNELL this afternoon - via his web site. This evening I received an e-mail from his friend. Stephen has --just-- passed away !
I don't know when this information will be passed along to the genealogy sites, but I thought I would mention it tonight.
* John GREENLAW was a "distant cousin" of mine. His grandfather was Clinton KIDDER of Princeton, ME. Clinton's older brother was George "Sanford" KIDDER who was my great-grandfather. Clinton's daughter was Mrs. Rita GREENLAW, wife of Otis.
Going back a few generations, Calvin KIDDER had left New Hampshire ~1784 and moved to New Brunswick. In 1798 he married Mary GREENLAW. No one has been able to find out about the family Mary came from. She was not the Mary GREENLAW who married into a FINLAYSON family.
