Actually, Donald W. Riegle is my dad's third cousin! He apparently was a republican in the early 70's and switched over to the dem's later in that decade. His son, Donald, Jr. is some big wig in the senate now. I thought I would try to get the geneaology from his line - as people will do 'famous' people's family history. So far, I haven't found anything. I just know that my great-grandad and his grandad were brothers - which one, I don't have a clue. Interesting....by the way - how do you pronounce your last name - I figured every spelling had the same pronunciation - as in "reegle". Just curious!
Thanks for writing back!
