Hope this helps you. Now I would like to have names and birthdates and death dates of Ancil and Earl's wives and children as the only thing I have is I know Ancil had a son Donald. I also have been in contact with a Dr. John Kernan from Alamossa, Colo. that said his grandmother was Anna and he wanted info on Patrick Kernan. I think he said his Father was Ancil,because we talked about the fact Anna had Ancil before she married, therefore the last name Kernan instead of Barton. Mary Kernan
