This work represents a beginning to the search for members of a small branch of the world community. The McDowell family was chosen arbitrarily as the point of origin. New information is forthcoming on the Todd branch and the Benns and Coles are currently being searched. Any errors contained are unintentional; corrections and additions are welcome. I would be most willing to exchange information with any interested parties.
