I do not know what these mean. If anyone has any information please reply.Was teh 20/30 male a brother, and the 70/80 female his mother or mother-in-law?
any way that is the rough outline. It goes into more children so if you are interested I can scan this and send to you.I am still in MO about fifty miles from Perry County.I am interested in how you are related to this. Thanks Stephanie
