Since my original posts regarding this family, we, that is a group of descendants of this couple that began with Mike McCammon and myself, have been able to piece together my gr-gr-gr-grandmother Sophia's family of origin, and have found information on the families of all but one of her known siblings. If you find that you are related, I'd love to hear from you and share information on the family. It appears that there are a lot of us descendants out there!
All the best,
