The last message was fired off prematurely--am having trouble with my server (Earthlink). I meant to say , do you think your Gr Grandfather is my Grandfather's brother? I can't remember the old gent's name. I only met that grandfather once--he was in his 80s, and had wonderful white hair and craggy features --"the look of eagles, " is what they said about General MacArthur. Did I mention Arthur MacArthur, Douglas's father was my Grandfather's 1st cousin?
