What you say is vaguely familiar. I believe they are
related to my ancestors, but . . .there's always
a but. It's been years since I worked on this and I
haven't taken time to look at what I have, but, from
memory, I know that I have Ellen/Eleanor Sears/Shires
married to John Cookingham who was brother of my ancestor,
Lorentz/Lawrence Cookingham. I could be all wrong with this,
but I thought we might kick it around a bit if you wish.
