Acknowledgements -

We have tried to document within the data all the many people who have helped us in our research endeavors. If you are not named here, please do not think that your contribution is unnoticed or unappreciated; it is just impossible to remember all the many people who have helped.

Special thanks goes to Ernest Johnston, Maureen Nelson, Gayle Cross, Beatrice McClain Pope, Carol Peterson, and Bill Adams for their assistance, their encouragement, and their critical review.

And of course, thanks to my grandmother, Ethel Nelson, who started me on my quest when she helped me fill out the family tree in a new Bible back many years ago. To her and to all who have gone before us, this site is dedicated.
