Hi Margie.... So great to make contact.I really don't know Tom Salley personally.I do remember his mother, Margaret.I'm actually in contact with Margaret's nephew, J.W. Sigmond, Jr.("Jimmy').His father and Margaret's brother was J.W. Sigmond, Sr. If you make contact with Tom, share my email address with him.Would like to make contact and get some information from him.
Thanks for the info on Modena.Hopefully I can locate someone on the Sigman/Sigmond side of the family that has more informaiton.(Don't you love all the different spellings you find?)
Of course, most of my research has been on the Jefcoat side of the familty.Started a bit of research on the Sigmond's after my mom talked to Jimmy over the holidays.
