I'm wondering if your Ggrandfather was my Ggrandfather's long lost brother, Charles., b. 1862-3, Oldtown, Allegany County, Md. His father's name was Edward, & it seems they all stayed with family names through the generations. Charles took off, & was said to have become a gambler on a riverboat on the Mississippi, but that's all we ever knew.Have you any oldstoriesthat may be of use in finding your roots?? Did anyone ever talk of Md. or Pa., or a family of Kifers?
