Thank you Ann, since sending you the msg. I did manage to work out what I was doing wrong and have since successfully contacted Janice, to which she has responded. Thank you for contacting her.It is very exciting to make contact with you both and our family will be most interested and willing to give whatever information we can recall from stories and letters. I am very interested in the Irish connection as we always believed there were no links to these Rushfords and that we came from a certain Marquis DeRochfort or (Count) France:- yet another one of my father's enthusiastic stories I now presume and probably always half suspected ! The Irish origin now makes sense.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and happy for you to use it if you wish. Many thanks David.
