Another thing to consider is that the email address you gave them may not have been accurate or their spam program may have caught your reply. Try again, maybe with a different addy and see what happens. This has happened several times to me Also I would be intersted in the Gauthier/Howard liine as I am descended from Gaithers and that is a common variant. My first cousin is descended from Howards so there is a higher chance of something useful. I am from the Jamestown, VA to Gaithersburg, MD to Elizabethton, KY Gaithers.
