HaHa, yes ! my parents(no longer married). I mentioned this to my mother today and she promptly handed me your book to read.What a treasure! She told me of these stories as a child, but very recently I have had I strong desire to build some personal connections to these people.What I have found out in the last few days is almost overwhelming. I feel so blessed to have such interesting ancestors.My email address should show up. I would love to correspond on this. I am very interested in traveling to some of these places. Particularly to Petersburg. I noticed in a couple of threads you mention Paintings of richard and elizabeth. I would love to see photos of them and/or any other family artifacts that may still exist. Do you have any idea as to the whereabouts of RR's suicide note to elizabeth?
