Hi Mike, Had a long posting for you, but went to look for another post and lost it. Maybe oldtimersdisease?Yes, it's complicated.Seems our "family" was a closed group with very little outcrossing.I have even found that Patnods moved into RI about the time that some Loyas did.Coincidence?I think not.
Did you see my post #145?In addition to those family tidbits, I have found several LaPean/Lapine/LaPine marriages to Patnodes/name variants.If we keep this up we may find that I'm your brother, and you are my grandfather.
Just remembered---"Those that can, do.Those that can't do, teach!"I first heard this when I became an AF tech instructor in 1956.I was still hearing it when I retired from Lockheed Martin as a tech instructor in 1998.Course, I had a few other careers between those dates.
