Hope you're still kicking and having some luck in your search. If you ever read this, you can see that I took a similar interest in family history and built a site at http://www.fulkerson.org/http://www.fulkerson.org/.
40+ years later and it's been mostly a good life.Right now I'm sitting in a hospital room, getting chemo meds pumped into my chest for leukemia. Prognosis is poor, 50% chance of making it another 2 years. I never did want to end up in a nursing home so maybe that's OK, and I think I already have enough of a store of fond memories.Just wanted to let you know, in case you're still around and ever wonder about people from the past.
