Dear Ms. Bowker, while we are pursuing the same name we are looking at entirely different lines. Your line evidently left the east coast and headed west across the midwestern states of PA, OH, KY, IN, IL etc., while my Syberts headed soutwestwardly from the Carolinas into GA, AL, TN, MS, LA, AR, TX, OK, etc. I am confident that somewhere way back when (perhaps Prussia) these two lines had a common link, but thus far I have not been able to find it. Maybe we will stumble upon it one of these days. Until then -- happy hunting.
