PLEASE READ THIS FIRST!
Although this work is a compilation of date concerning our family’s ancestry it is to be used as a reference tool for those of you seeking your own family origins. An earnestattempt has been made to use primary sources where ever possible and reliable secondarysources only to fill in the gaps, however, the information provided is far from completeand probably contains much mis-information. Therefore, it is strongly suggested that allinformation obtained from this or any genealogy be compared to the original records andif mistakes are found or if more information is available
write it on the blank spaces provided at the end of each section an extra page. If you the reader do wish to addinformation (which I hope you will) it is imperative that you give your sources otherwisethe information will be useless to future ancestor hunters. E-mails from all those whowish to share the fruits of their labor with the author are most welcome to write, however,given the nature of my profession it may be some time before I am able to respond… be patient… all inquiries will be answered.Good luck on all your research efforts.Jeffrey E.
