Hi Libby...I didn't know of a John dating back that far born in N.Y! Bless your heart you been working soooooo hard! Go to Ancestry board and put the word out there too. I don't go there but to snoop anymore. As you see I changed my handle. I got to diving into my own roots and got in trouble..I knew too much and many of my treebranches didn't like it..OH WELL!
