Well, i guess that the proof i have is that i am George Maple Jr's daughter, my grandmother is Minta Alice Dowdy, my grandfather is George Maple Sr. who died in Cleveland area with his second wife, but lived in Portsmouth for years where he had 9 children, where my father is the oldest, because his brother harold passed away at age 28 (per death certificate that i have). Where we still live in Portsmouth, ohio and my ggrandfather was George Henery Maple(have george and henry's picture together). i believe that william and barbara were the parents then john and nancy were william's parents. my mother is buried on Maple-Benner rd along with several other relatives from this line. is this not what you have and where do you fit into nancy's line?
