Hi Mike, Pat, Louis, Dick, I am so glad to see some info on the Loya/Doaner? lines coming out. I have been searching for 6 years for my mother-in-law to connect the Indian heritage. My m-in-law is Laura Emma Loya Kecki and she is the daughter of George Loya and Cora Anna Swenor. The only info I have goes just back to Thomas Sr also and I do not know if Lucy and Jessie are related. I did see a marriage cert once that showed Lucy's name spelled as Luccaie Donnais or Dennais, perhaps the French/Canadian spelling. It was hand written, that is why I am not sure about the second letter being an a,e, or o. My mother in law has a wonderful memory about her cousins, but the crossing of the lines gets very confusing with her Loya/Doner and Swenor connections. I will look here often now that the info line is building. Good to see you on again Pat, I had lost your email when I switched over to MSN.
