I'm so glad to see one of Chad's cousins turn up! His mother is Rita, who's currently living in Nevada. He'll be sending you an email shortly to say hello.
I am going to get together the info I have on your branch and send it along. If you can make additions or corrections it will be greatly appreciated. We have done a lot of work with Jan Nordhoff, who is married to the son of your Great Uncle Franklin Whitall Nordhoff and contributed the diaries Chad put on line.
It's so nice to find a first cousin - distant relatives are as close as we usually get.
