I would like to contact anyone who shares the below family, has info on Jeremiah’s ties to the other RI Vallette families or can ‘set me straight' on any info here that may be in error. I do think the Northerly RI Vallettes and mine from the South counties are related... just can’t figure out how... Thank you!
