I am picking up on a query posted by co-researcher in 1999 with information I recently received and have researched. Attached is what I am working with in addition to trying to find the parents of Edward Hillock who began this whole thing for me.Somehow they are all tied together but we still have not discovered how - every time we turn around there are more things to connect us, legal docs, photos, census, etc. Hoping someone can help....
