Hi Gary! Small world isn't it? I am also from the Roanoke area, but live in Floyd Co. now. Am also the mother to 4 children. This explains why I have'nt been to the library yet. The next time you go, would you mind checking on Nancy for me? How do I go about obtaining a book over the net? I'm pretty new at this stuff and also pretty addicted! Here is a little info: James Aul b.Mar.7,1778 married Nancy Beckner b.Dec.12,1779 married on Nov.6,1806 and had 7 children. They had a child named Nancy also- b.Jan.22,1818. I would greatly appreciate any info. Thanks, Vicky in Va.
