Yes, Mary..you are so right. TRUTH and FACTS are one and the same. Yes, I totally agree with you, if we are going to do research we need to be absolutely certain that our "John" is the SAME JOHN you are talking about, otherwise we are in a whole different branch of a family, even it our roots may go deep otherwise and eventually we find out our branch is part of the same tree...determining where it is that branch shoots out from the vine is pretty important if we want to make sure all the little branches connected to us are being supported in the process...you go girl! It's obvious you are doing your homework...I do have some info on Hattie Mae I will send to you so you might have it for others searching for that place where we have been connected to the Poston Family Tree, whether on your side or the opposite side of this tree, it's possible if we keep digging long enough we will find those roots. Happy hunting!
