WEll folks I am looking into my past linage and found that Silas Richardson 1 was married to a (Pherno) or FRONA Talbott this would be my great grandmother any news on my linage would be helpful, I found on my fathers side Walter Dodge Hope married Mary Elizabeth, Sanbernadino California. Seems like the trail runs cold for my ancestors, but in the census I am finding We have people from the plymouth Rock days which is kindof cool, horse traders and the such. the only thing is that back in 1904 there was a Silas Hope out of Gaston Texas, only one name that doesn't seem to fit in my linage of names.. Does anyone know what was happening in the early 1900's? Thanks for all your folks help.
