Dear Don, January 19, 2018

In 2009, we had a lively talk over several messages about genealogy and some of the finds I had made of soldiers in various wars. I didn't remember that I knew so much about relatives even at that time.

I am glad to hear that you could be back into biking. I have done 3 long distance bike trips. After not biking for 25 years, I started because of my 4th great grandfather I told you about--John Gritton.

Here is a little write-up I did for the genealogical group I attend. Hope this attaches, so you can see it. If not, please E-mail me at nonsmoke4ga@hotmail.com and I will send another way. You can just E-mail, also,.

Wesley Chapel Genealogy Group report on Huse breakthrough::

This is about my discovery while on bike trip across Illinois in August 2017. I found my 3rd great grandmother Sarah T. Huse Lee., I put Sarah T. Huse (her maiden name) into GOOGLE and that opened a great BIG DOOR.

The Find-A-Grave weblink opened an enormous door for me. In the last week or so, with help from my 2nd cousin Rick Cook in OR, we have put several gravestones into the system. My parents, both sets of grandparents, and my sister’s dad, now link to some of their relatives.

GOOGLE is marvelous. I found another 4th great grandfather in the Revolution yesterday. George Hallmark stole something and was transported to America and he was in VA militia. He is ancestor for almost all Hallmarks in US.
Hope you have found some ancestors of interest, also..

Dear Bob,

Wonder if your wife is my relative. My 4th great grandfather was Squire Marcrum. In searching that genealogy line, I saw about 20 variants of the name including Marcum, Markham.

My neighbor, Walter Griffin the poet, has your birthday plus 10 years.
