I'm really looking forward to the Eliza Orchard Norton's story! Get me a contact email and I'll get you on the mailing list for Cousins Night in the Plano School District. Some of your cousins are in Tunisia. They are in Alaska, California, Tennessee and Texas. Some of them are down the street.
Our line is Jane Orchanrd m. Samuel Irvine Rev. Samuel Orchard Irvine m. Mary Jane Cross Dr. Howard Thomas Irvine m. Dr. Annie Nora Sowell Dr. Virginia Howard Irvine m. Dr. Truman Graves Blocker Jr to me. My generation of four children had fourteen grandchildren who have about 21 great grandchildren. My mother was born Canadian and the hero of our family was betsy Wilton Orchard for carrying on after Thomas' death in Cleveland.
