Hi Rick, yes, I have corresponded with Jerry and Leila. And yes, I have tried to get obits for both in IL to no avail. I also have tried for a ma record in NY where they were married. Too early they say. I am putting my money on James as Hannah's father. He was in the right place at the right time. But I can find no definite proof. Do you have a James in your line from John George?
Thanks for responding, I would surely love to get this line.
